From scripture "It is Written"


Sennacherib wrote in his prism

The stone carvings in the walls include many battle scenes, impalings and scenes showing Sennacherib's men parading the spoils of war before him. He also bragged about his conquests: he wrote of Babylon: "Its inhabitants, young and old, I did not spare, and with their corpses I filled the streets of the city." He later wrote about a battle in Lachish: "And Hezekiah of Judah who had not submitted to my yoke...him I shut up in Jerusalem his royal city like a caged bird.

Hezekiah wrote:

  Psalm 124

7    Our soul is escaped as a bird out of the snare of the fowlers: the snare is broken, and we are escaped.

Notice how Archaeological finds prove God’s Word the Bible yet nothing can be found from the Book of Mormon.

When Jesus walked in the Middle East he would say it is written , yet not once did he quote a Book of Mormon verse.

Deuteronomy 6:13

Fear the LORD your God, serve him only and take your oaths in his name.

Deuteronomy 10:20

Fear the LORD your God and serve him. Hold fast to him and take your oaths in his name.

1 Samuel 7:3

So Samuel said to all the Israelites, "If you are returning to the LORD with all your hearts, then rid yourselves of the foreign gods and the Ashtoreths and commit yourselves to the LORD and serve him only, and he will deliver you out of the hand of the Philistines."

Matthew 4:10

Jesus said to him, "Away from me, Satan! For it is written: 'Worship the Lord your God, and serve him only.'"

 Jesus  could have quoted from the Book of Mormon since this was written 556 years before he was born according to the dates in this book

2 Nephi 31:

21 "And now, behold, my beloved brethren, this is the way; and there is none other way nor name given under heaven whereby man can be saved in the kingdom of God. And now, behold, this is the doctrine of Christ, and the only and true doctrine of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost, which is one God, without end. Amen."

  notice how it teaches the Trinity in 556 BC and it doesn't say one in purpose but ONE GOD like Jesus taught in Mark 12:28-29

28 And one of the scribes came, and having heard them reasoning together, and perceiving that he had answered them well, asked him, Which is the first commandment of all? 2 9And Jesus answered him, The first of all the commandments is, Hear, O Israel; The Lord our God is one Lord: 

 The kinsman-redeemer is a male relative who, according to various laws of the Pentateuch, had the privilege or responsibility to act on behalf of a relative who was in trouble, danger, or need. The Hebrew term (go el) for kinsman-redeemer designates one who delivers or rescues (Genesis 48:16; Exodus 6:6) or redeems property or person (Leviticus 27:9–25, 25:47–55). The kinsman who redeems or vindicates a relative is illustrated most clearly in the book of Ruth, where the kinsman-redeemer is Boaz.

  The story of Ruth and Boaz begins when Ruth and her mother-in-law, Naomi, return to Bethlehem from Moab where they had been living. Naomi’s husband and both sons, one the husband of Ruth, had died, leaving the women penniless and without a male protector. Upon arriving in Bethlehem, Naomi sends Ruth to glean in the fields of Boaz, a wealthy relative of Naomi to whom they, through a series of divinely appointed circumstances, appeal as their go el. Boaz acquiesces, willingly takes Ruth as his wife, and together they bear a son named Obed who became the grandfather of David, the forefather of Jesus.
Qualifications to be a Kinsman Redeemer
1.       Must be a Kinsman

2.       Must be free of debt

3.       Must be able to pay
4.       Must be willing to pay, Ruth first in line kinsman was not willing like Boaz
Jesus is a kinsman Redeemer
1.       Born of a woman, Rahib “the Harlot” Tamar “played the Harlot” and Ruth from the godless country of Moab
2.       Was free of sin
3.       Was God and man
4.       Gave his life willingly
Jesus represented all mankind who shed that blood for the world

        Paul quoted was Epimenides who stated in his work entiled Cretica the following:
      “They fashioned a tomb for thee. O holy and high one.. . .  But thou art not dead, thou livest and abidest forever. For in thee we live and move and have our being.”
      Here Paul uses the poets words to introduce the Greeks  to the death and resurrection of the true God, Jesus Christ.
       The historical account of Epimenides himself would also tie in nicely with presenting Christ to the Greeks for the first time. You see in the 6th century B.C., when the poet Epimenides lived, there was a plague which went throughout all Greece. The Greeks thought that they must have offended one of their gods, so they began offering sacrifices on altars to all their various false gods. When nothing worked they figured there must be a God who they didn’t know about whom they must somehow apease. So Epimenides came up with a plan. He released hungry sheep into the countryside and instructed men to follow the sheep to see where they would lie down. He believed that since hungry sheep would not naturally lie down but continue to graze, if the sheep were to lie down it would be a sign from God that this place was sacred. At each spot, where the sheep tired and layed down, the Athenians built an altar and sacrificed the sheep on it. Afterward it is believed the plague stopped which they attributed to this unknown God accepting the sacrifice.

Acts 17:22  Then Paul stood in the midst of Mars’ hill, and said, Ye men of Athens, I perceive that in all things ye are too superstitious. 23For as I passed by, and beheld your devotions, I found an altar with this inscription, TO THE UNKNOWN GOD. Whom therefore ye ignorantly worship, him declare I unto you.

  Jesus is the GATE and ROCK and no one comes to the Father but thru this GATE and ROCK
Matt 7:
13 Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: 14 Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.

15 Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves. 16 Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles? 17 Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit. 18 A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit. 19 Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire. 20 Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them.

21 Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. 22 Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? 23 And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity. 24 Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock: 25 And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not: for it was founded upon a rock.
 26 And every one that heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them not, shall be likened unto a foolish man, which built his house upon the sand: 27 And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell: and great was the fall of it. 28 And it came to pass, when Jesus had ended these sayings, the people were astonished at his doctrine: 29 For he taught them as one having authority, and not as the scribes.

 Matthew 4
1 Then Jesus was led out into the wilderness by the Holy Spirit, to be tempted there by Satan. 2 For forty days and forty nights he ate nothing and became very hungry. 3 Then Satan tempted him to get food by changing stones into loaves of bread.
“It will prove you are the Son of God,” he said.
4 But Jesus told him, “No! For the Scriptures tell us that bread won’t feed men’s souls: obedience to every word of God is what we need.”

Jesus was hungry and starving and living in a dystopian condition yet didn’t succumb to the temptations of Satan.
“Since you are the Son of God,” he said. [ correct statement ]

Adam on the other hand was living in a Utopian world in the Garden of Eden, yet succumbed to the temptations of Satan. Are we to believe Adam was God according to Mormonism when he failed in this Utopian environment and Jesus who was at the verge of death didn’t succumb . In fact the Pastor said if he was to eat bread out of stone that would have killed him since solid food would be detrimental in that condition. So Satan’s instructions would have killed Jesus. Since he would have needed to go on a liquid diet initially .
