December 9 – John 19:28; “After this, Jesus knowing that all things were now accomplished, that the scripture might be fulfilled, saith, I thirst.”
This verse should be pointed out to every Mormon. Jesus was hanging on the cross at this time, not in the Garden when He said “all things were now accomplished”. If all things had been accomplished in the Garden of Gethsemane, why would He have to go on to be crucified? And why didn’t He say those words in the Garden of Gethsemane? The Mormons have made up their own story to God’s sacrifice because of two things.
1. They don’t know and haven’t taken the time to learn the truth.
2. They have rejected God.
BTW – the Mormon phrase “after the manner of the flesh” is a code phrase meaning “through a sexual union”.
“He was born into this world after the manner of the flesh, with God as his father and Mary as his mother, inheriting the powers of mortality and immortality thereby. He was thus able to work out the infinite and eternal atoning sacrifice. He was thus able to bow in that garden outside Jerusalem’s walls, that garden called Gethsemane, and take upon himself the sins of all men on conditions of repentance. That act is the greatest miracle of all time since the miracle of creation…” Who Shall Declare His Generation? BYU Studies, vol. 16 (1975-1976), Number 4 – Summer 1976 560.
