Book Of Mormon Plagiarism: 2 Nephi 21:1-3

Isaiah, chapter 11, speaks of Jesus, who is from the root of Jesse.  We learn that the Spirit of the LORD resting upon Him.  This Spirit is the Father, or YHWH, which is pronounced Yahweh.  When “LORD” is used it speaks of the divinity of God and His very name, which is so sacred.  Let’s read this now.  “1 And there shall come forth a rod out of the stem of Jesse, and a Branch shall grow out of his roots: 2 And the spirit of the LORD shall rest upon him, the spirit of wisdom and understanding, the spirit of counsel and might, the spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the LORD ; 3 And shall make him of quick understanding in the fear of the LORD: and he shall not judge after the sight of his eyes, neither reprove after the hearing of his ears.”  (Isaiah 11:1-3)  Jesus even says that the Spirit in Him that does the works is the Father.  “10 Believest thou not that I am in the Father, and the Father in me? the words that I speak unto you I speak not of myself: but the Father that dwelleth in me, he doeth the works.” (John 14:10)  Amen.  Let these words speak.

Above, you will notice I bolded LORD, this is because, in the Book of Mormon the same verses are copied and pasted, and “LORD” was purposely changed to “Lord”.  Cults often do this without thinking.  Read for yourself how Joseph Smith, the first false prophet in Mormonism, took Isaiah and changed the meaning of God.  “1 And there shall come forth a rod out of the stem of Jesse, and a branch shall grow out of his roots. 2 And the Spirit of the Lord shall rest upon him, the spirit of wisdom and understanding, the spirit of counsel and might, the spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the Lord; 3 And shall make him of quick understanding in the fear of the Lord; and he shall not judge after the sight of his eyes, neither reprove after the hearing of his ears.” (2 Nephi 21:1-3)  There is one reason why Joseph Smith and other people in Mormonism would be happy with changing the name for “LORD” to “Lord”.   This is because they believe the Father has a body of flesh and bones and is not Spirit only.  This goes against what Jesus said and taught about the Father’s Spirit dwelling in.  What will you believe?  God or people.  Amen.

Let us pray:
Oh Lord, I pray that Your Spirit will become our teacher and not what other people have told us over time.  In a world of false religions and false teachers, it can be hard to navigate away from this, but You are able to make a way for us.  Because You love us, there is a way out of what is dark and ugly on the inside.  Although things may appear as good on the outside, You are able to reveal the truth of what lies inside.  This is the case with Mormonism.  They appear as if they have it all together.  They dress the part and act very religious, but their hearts are still far from You.  And because they are so deep into their false doctrines and traditions, trying to lead one of them out of this is like pulling teeth.  I have seen so many people who laugh at scoff at me that are Mormons.  These people have hearts that are cold to the truth of God.  Not only this, but the hardness of their hearts is keeping them from being saved.  Lord, I know that each person has a weakness when it comes to letting truth in.  They may not want to do this, but when You convict them of what is true and what is false, they can either deny the Holy Spirit or leave Mormonism.  This I pray that they do this for Your sake.  I love You, Jesus.  Amen.
