One of the worst things for Mormons to deny is that the Father is Spirit, having no body. This is because Jesus taught this. Because their beloved prophet Joseph Smith said the Father has a body of flesh and bones like unto the son, they believe him as if his words are scripture. In doing this, they are denying Jesus, who is God, at the same time. Out of the mouth of our Lord Jesus, it is written, “but the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship him. God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.” (John 4:23,24) Jesus is speaking to the woman at the well and tells her that true worshippers worship the Father in Spirit, for He is Spirit. Jesus then helps Thomas know how this is possible when He explains how the Father dwells in Him, being Spirit. Jesus said, “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) Why is this hard to believe what Jesus said? I believe in Jesus in so much as to also believe what He says about His Father being Spirit.
The same way the Holy Spirit dwells in us, the Father dwells in the Son being Spirit. And to top it off, Jesus explained to his disciples that there are spiritual beings that have no bodies. This is when Jesus appeared to them after his resurrection. It is written, “behold my hands and my feet, that it is I myself: handle me, and see; for a spirit hath not flesh and bones, as ye see me have. And when he had thus spoken, he shewed them his hands and his feet.” (Luke 24:39,40) Therefore, there are spiritual beings like the Father and the Holy Spirit, which have no body. This is necessary for the Holy Spirit to dwell in many people at once. It is also necessary for the Father to dwell in His Son also, in that He may be remote from Him. And so the Father manifests His Spirit in a remote fashion as the Holy Spirit does with us. They do not have flesh and bones but a Spirit only, which allows their Spirits to become one with us. True worshippers of God know that the Father is Spirit, and they worship Him in spirit and truth. Our own spirits in us become one with the Father in this way. Why do Mormons deny this teaching from Jesus? It is because they hate the doctrine of the Trinity, which this supports. Amen.
Let us pray:
Oh Lord, I pray that people in the Mormon church will repent and get right with You while they still have time. Surely, the majority of their doctrines are of the devil and need to be rooted out of their hearts in order for them to come to know You, Jesus, and be saved. The truth is, their hearts are hardened to know You, God. I can be using the Bible to show them the right way when it comes to You, Father, being Spirit only, and they still laugh and scoff at what I have to say. The same thing happens when I discuss with them the true gospel message of the cross and resurrection and not Gethsemane. There is so much truth that comes from the Bible, but they simply resist it. But God, I am finally understanding why. These people have become very blind and cannot see. Your truth is so easy to grasp, but because their beliefs are rooted in their prophets and their other books, those teachings are more meaningful to them than what is taught in the Bible. This is a travesty for sure, but I know that You can do all things, God. You can make a way for some of these people to find a way out of their cult and be saved. There is salvation only through You, Jesus, not religion. I love You, God. Amen.
