And the morning stars sang together, and all the sons of God, or the children of Elohim, shouted for joy. And on the seventh day Elohim ended the work; and Elohim rested on the seventh day from all work, and all things which they had made were finished, and Elohim saw that they were good; and the gods saw this and said among themselves: On the seventh time we will end our work, which we have counseled; and we will rest on the seventh time from all our work which we have counseled. And thus the gods too concluded upon the seventh time, because that on the seventh time they would rest from all their works which they, the gods, counseled among themselves to form; and sanctified it. And thus were their decisions at the time that they counseled among themselves to form the heavens and the earth created. And thus Elohim blessed the seventh day, and sanctified it calling it Sabbath; because that in it Elohim had rested from all the work which was made."Music: “Impact Moderato” by Kevin MacLeodClick here to become a patron.Support the show (https://www.patreon.com/user?u=28994496)
In this episode we go over Chapter 3:51-66 of the Book of Remembrance. Here we talk about the sixth day of the creation, and what that means to your call and ministry in Jesus Christ.From the Book of Remembrance:"And Elohim said: Let the earth bring forth the living creature after his kind, cattle, and creeping things, and beasts of the earth after their kind, and it was so; for they, the gods, organized the earth to bring forth the beasts after their kind, and cattle after their kind, and everything that creepeth upon the earth after its kind; and the gods saw they would obey. And thus Elohim, through the gods, by the power of the Only Begotten given him by Elohim, made the beasts of the earth after their kind, and cattle after their kind, and everything which creepeth upon the earth after his kind; and Elohim saw that all these things were good. And Elohim said unto the Only Begotten, which was with Elohim, and thus with the gods, from the beginning: Let us make man in our image, after our likeness. And the gods took counsel among themselves and said: Let us go down and form man in our image, after our likeness. "And the gods went down to organize man in their own image, and in the image of the Only Begotten; and in the image of the gods to form they him, male and female to form they them. And Elohim said: Let them have dominion over the fishes of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth. And Elohim required the gods bless them, and to say unto them: Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it, and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth. And the gods said: We will bless them. "And the gods said: We will cause them to be fruitful and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it, and to have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth. And Elohim caused YHVH to say unto man: Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree in the which shall be the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for meat. And to every beast of the earth, and to every fowl of the air, and to everything that creepeth upon the earth, wherein I grant life, there shall be given every clean herb for meat; and it was so, even as they spake through the voice of their servants, the gods or the Holy Spirit. And Elohim saw everything that had been made, and behold, all things which had been made were very good. "And it came to pass that it was from evening until morning they called night; and it came to pass that it was from morning until evening that they called day; and they numbered the sixth time. And the evening and the morning were the sixth day by the reckoning of the Gods."Music: “Impact Moderato” by Kevin MacLeodClick here to become a patron.Support the show (https://www.patreon.com/user?u=28994496)

And the gods prepared the waters that they might bring forth the monsters and the great ones, and every living creature that moveth, which the waters were to bring forth abundantly after their kind; and every winged fowl after their kind. And the gods saw that they would be obeyed and that the plan was good. "And Elohim required the gods that they should create the monsters and the great ones, and every living creature that moveth, which the waters brought forth abundantly, after their kind; and every winged fowl after his kind; and the gods saw that all things were created, and that they were good. And Elohim required they blessed them, saying: Be fruitful, and multiply, and fill the waters in the sea; and let fowl multiply in the earth. and the gods said: We will bless them, and cause them to be fruitful and multiply, and fill the waters in the seas or great waters; and cause the fowl to multiply in the earth. And it came to pass that it was from evening until morning that we called night; and it came to pass that it was from morning until evening that we called day; and it was the fifth time.

Here we talk about the fourth day of the creation, and what that means to your call and ministry in Jesus Christ.From the Book of Remembrance:"And behold, Elohim said unto them: Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven, to divide the day from the night, and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and for years; and let them be for lights in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth.  And they, the gods, organized the lights in the expanse of the heaven in the manner required by Elohim, and caused them to divide the day from the night; and organizedthem to be for signs and for seasons, and for days and for years. And they organized them to be for lights in the expanse of the heaven to give light upon the earth; and it was so. And Elohim desired there be made two great lights; the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night, and the greater light was the sun, and the lesser light was the moon; and the stars also were made even according to their word. And the gods obeyed his commands, and having thus organized the two great lights; the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night; with the lesser light they set the stars also; yea and behold, these were even created in their own time, the sun even before the earth; yet all things at this time did fall into their place that these things should work for the benefit of man. For Elohim desired the gods to set them in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth; thus the gods set them in the expanse of the heavens upon the direction of Elohim, to give light upon the earth, and to rule over the day and over the night, and to cause to divide the light from the darkness. And the gods watched those things which they had ordered until they obeyed. And Elohim saw that all things which they had made were good. And it came to pass that from evening until morning that it was night; and it came to pass that it was from morning until evening that it was day, And it was the fourth time; and thus the evening and the morning were the fourth day" Music: “Impact Moderato” by Kevin MacLeodClick here to become a patron.Support the show (https://www.patreon.com/user?u=28994496)

Nephi and his brothers go back to Jerusalem to obtain the plates of brass.1:67 [3:9] And I, Nephi, and my brethren took our journey in the wilderness with our tents, to go up to the land of Jerusalem.1:68a [3:10] ¶ And it came to pass that when we had come up to the land of Jerusalem, I and my brethren did consult one with another;1:68b [3:11a] And we cast lots who of us should go in unto the house of Laban.1:69 [3:11b] And it came to pass that the lot fell upon Laman; and Laman went in unto the house of Laban, and he talked with him as he sat in his house.1:70 [3:12] And he desired of Laban the records which were engraven upon the plates of brass, which contained the genealogy of my father.1:71 [3:13a] ¶ And behold, it came to pass that Laban was angry and thrust him out from his presence; and he would not that he should have the records.1:72 [3:13b] Wherefore, he said unto him: Behold, thou art a robber, and I will slay thee.1:73 [3:14a] But Laman fled out of his presence and told the things which Laban had done, unto us.1:74 [3:14b] And we began to be exceeding sorrowful, and my brethren were about to return unto my father in the wilderness.1:75 [3:15] But behold, I said unto them: That as YHVH liveth, and as we live, we will not go down unto our father in the wilderness until we have accomplished the thing which YHVH hath commanded us.1:76 [3:16a] Wherefore, let us be faithful in keeping the commandments of YHVH;1:77 [3:16b] Therefore, let us go down to the land of our father's inheritance; for behold, he left gold, and silver, and all manner of riches.1:78a [3:16c] And all this he hath done because of the commandments of YHVH;1:78b [3:17] For he knowing that Jerusalem must be destroyed because of the wickedness of the people.Notes:This text has been edited from the original to change Greek or English terms to the Hebrew. RAV is the Book of Mormon version more commonly used by Community of Christ and their offshoots, [OPV] is the version more commonly used by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and their offshoots.

And they, the gods, said: Let there be an expanse in the midst of the waters, and it shall divide the waters from the waters. And the gods ordered the expanse so that it divided the waters which were under the expanse from the waters which were above the expanse; and it was so, even as they ordered. And Elohim called the firmament Heaven; and the gods followed, calling the expanse Heaven. And it came to pass that it was from evening until morning that was called night by the reckoning of the gods; and it came to pass that it was from morning until evening that they called day; And this was the second time that they called night and day, and thus the evening and the morning were the second day."

And Elohim said to the gods: Let there be light; and they, the gods, said: Let there be light; and there was light. And behold, Elohim, saw the light; and that light was good. And they, the gods, comprehended the light, for it was bright; and they, by the command of Elohim, divided the light, or caused it to be divided, from the darkness. And Elohim called the light Day and the darkness he called Night; and this was done by the Word of their power; and it was done even as Elohim spake. And thus the gods too called the light Day and the darkness they called Night. And it came to pass that from the evening until morning we called night and from the morning until the evening called we day; and this was the first, or the beginning, of that which was called day and night, not by the reckoning of time as to man, but by the order or direction of Elohim and by the counsel of the gods.

Here we talk about the pre-mortal world, the creation, and what that means to your call and ministry in Jesus Christ.From The Creation:"As a teenage boy, one night I sat in my room conversing with the voice of the Lord; I was asking Him questions and He was giving me answers. My vision of the creation came this night when I was in bed, pondering the mysteries of the universe. I had been praying and was filled with the spirit. I was pondering the theory of evolution and the creation story, as told by my religious relatives and as I had learned of it at church (the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints). As a teenager in high school, this seemed very important to me; the Lord had already shown me a few visions that evening and I was fearful of the answer I would receive."From the Book of Remembrance:"In the beginning was the counsel, even a counsel of the gods, and YHVH, the Lord Jesus  Christ premortal, was God, and chief or head of the gods; the same was in the beginning with Elohim and is the Only Begotten."Music: “Impact Moderato” by Kevin MacLeodClick here to become a patron.Support the show (https://www.patreon.com/user?u=28994496)Support the show (https://www.patreon.com/user?u=28994496)
In this episode we go over Chapter 1 of  The Book of Remembrance. Here we talk about the beginnings of your call and ministry in Jesus Christ. From the Preface:"With the exception of the first three chapters, the Book of Remembrance is a series of revelations David Ferriman, First Elder of the Church of Jesus Christ in Christian Fellowship received in January of 2016. After receiving the revelations, he felt inspired only to share a portion of what he was given with the world. However, in the summer of 2018 he felt moved by the Holy Spirit to share the revelation in full..."From the Book of Remembrance:"The Lord has commanded me saying: Behold, I say into thee, my servant David: Write ye the words of the Lord. Keep my words in a Book of Remembrance that shall stand as a testimony at the last day; that ye are my covenanted servant, and that I have called and sanctified thee to speak for me in these, the last days; not to declare a new Gospel, for behold the trump of the angel has sounded, and the Everlasting Gospel has been sent unto them that dwell on the earth, and shall go forth to every nation, and kindred, and tongue, and people: yea, even the Book of Mormon, to bear witness of me and my Word, that I am the Lord thy God, and I am the same yesterday, today, and forever." -1:3-7Music: “Impact Moderato” by Kevin MacLeodClick here to become a patron.Support the show (https://www.patreon.com/user?u=28994496)
Nephi is instructed by Lehi to go back to Jerusalem for the plates of brass. 1:59 [3:1] ¶ And it came to pass that I, Nephi, returned from speaking with YHVH(1), to the tent of my father.1:60 [3:2] And it came to pass that he spake unto me, saying: Behold, I have dreamed a dream, in the which YHVH hath commanded me that thou and thy brethren shall return to Jerusalem.1:61 [3:3] For behold, Laban hath the record of the Jews and also a genealogy of thy forefathers, and they are engraven upon plates of brass.1:62 [3:4] Wherefore, YHVH hath commanded me that thou and thy brothers should go unto the house of Laban, and seek the records, and bring them down hither into the wilderness.1:63 [3:5] And now, behold, thy brothers murmur, saying it is a hard thing which I have required of them; but behold, I have not required it of them; but it is a commandment of YHVH.1:64 [3:6] Therefore, go, my son, and thou shalt be favored of YHVH because thou hast not murmured.1:65a [3:7a] ¶ And it came to pass that I, Nephi, said unto my father, I will go and do the things which YHVH hath commanded;1:65b [3:7b] For I know that YHVH giveth no commandments unto the children of men, save He shall prepare a way for them that they may accomplish the thing which He commandeth them.1:66 [3:8] ¶ And it came to pass that when my father had heard these words, he was exceeding glad, for he knew that I had been blessed of YHVH.Notes:This text has been edited from the original to change Greek or English terms to the Hebrew. RAV is the Book of Mormon version more commonly used by Community of Christ and their offshoots, [OPV] is the version more commonly used by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and their offshoots.

Love Thy Neighbors

Love Thy Neighbors

2020-03-1637:30

The following is based on a portion of a transcript from a sermon from November 21, 2015. In the Torah, in Leviticus 19:18, the Lord says, “Thou shalt not avenge, nor bear any grudge against the children of thy people, but thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself: I am the Lord” (Holy Bible, KJV). Further down, in verses 33-34 we read:And if a stranger sojourn with thee in your land, ye shall not vex him. But the stranger that dwelleth with you shall be unto you as one born among you, and thou shalt love him as thyself; for ye were strangers in the land of Egypt: I am the Lord your God.Let’s tie this together. In verse 18 we’re commanded to love our neighbors, the people we know. In verses 33-34 it extends to anyone coming into the land. This is important, because this is the Law. When refugees come we don’t say, “let’s see what they can do for us, let’s see what skills they have.”Jesus taught us in Matthew 5:43-48:Ye have heard that it hath been said, Thou shalt love thy neighbor, and hate thine enemy. But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you; that ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven: for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust. For if ye love them which love you, what reward have ye? do not even the publicans the same? And if ye salute your brethren only, what do ye more than others? do not even the publicans so? Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect.In the Book of Mormon, Christ teaches the same doctrine to the Lehites.And behold it is written also, that thou shalt love thy neighbor and hate thine enemy; but behold I say unto you, love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them who despitefully use you and persecute you; that ye may be the children of your Father who is in heaven; for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good. Therefore those things which were of old time, which were under the law, in me are all fulfilled. Old things are done away, and all things have become new. Therefore I would that ye should be perfect even as I, or your Father who is in heaven is perfect. -3 Nephi 4:70-73 RAV, 12:43-48 OPV.This is the great work we show after we’ve been born again. We too love our neighbors, just a Christ set the perfect example for us to do. It’s that compassion for our fellow beings. We see that we were in a fallen state, that Jesus Christ descended below it all, and suffered for us. He died for us. And, all he asks us to do in return is love him. To accept him. To come to him with a broken heart and contrite spirit. And by doing this, the Holy Spirit moves us. We grow in Grace and become Christlike, loving our neighbors. Not turning them away, but helping them in any way we can.Support the show (https://www.patreon.com/user?u=28994496)
Nephi goes to the Lord for his own testimony, shares what he learned with his brothers, goes back the Lord, gains more light and knowledge, and returns to his father, Lehi. 1:47 [2:16a] ¶ And it came to pass that I, Nephi, being exceeding young, nevertheless, being large in stature, and also having great desires to know of the mysteries of Elohim1,1:48 [2:16b] Wherefore, I did cry unto YHVH2; and behold, He did visit me and did soften my heart, that I did believe all the words which had been spoken by my father; wherefore, I did not rebel against him like unto my brothers.1:49 [2:17a] And I spake unto Sam, making known unto him the things which YHVH2 had manifested unto me by His Holy Spirit.1:50 [2:17b] ¶ And it came to pass that he believed in my words;1:51 [2:18a] But behold, Laman and Lemuel would not hearken unto my words;1:52 [2:18b] And being grieved because of the hardness of their hearts, I cried unto YHVH2 for them.1:53 [2:19] ¶ And it came to pass that YHVH2 spake unto me, saying: Blessed art thou, Nephi, because of thy faith; for thou hast sought me diligently with lowliness of heart.1:54 [2:20] And inasmuch as ye shall keep my commandments, ye shall prosper and shall be led to a land of promise, yea, even a land which I have prepared for you, yea, a land which is choice above all other lands.1:55 [2:21] And inasmuch as thy brethren shall rebel against thee, they shall be cut off from the presence of YHVH2.1:56 [2:22] And inasmuch as thou shalt keep my commandments, thou shalt be made a ruler and a teacher over thy brethren.1:57 [2:23] For behold, in that day that they shall rebel against me, I will curse them even with a sore curse; and they shall have no power over thy seed, except they shall rebel against me also.1:58 [2:24] And if it so be that they rebel against me, they shall be a scourge unto thy seed, to stir them up in the ways of remembrance.[OPV Chapter 3]1:59 [3:1] ¶ And it came to pass that I, Nephi, returned from speaking with YHVH2, to the tent of my father.Notes:This text has been edited from the original to change Greek or English terms to the Hebrew. RAV is the Book of Mormon version more commonly used by Community of Christ and their offshoots, [OPV] is the version more commonly used by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and their offshoots.

Lehi and Nephi face doubt in Laman and Lemuel, but Lehi rebukes doubt with power from God.1:33 [2:6] ¶ And it came to pass that when he had traveled three days in the wilderness, he pitched his tent in a valley by the side of a river of water.1:34 [2:7] And it came to pass that he built an altar of stones, and he made an offering unto YHVH(1) and gave thanks unto YHVH, our Elohim(2).1:35 [2:8] And it came to pass that he called the name of the river Laman, and it emptied into the Red Sea; and the valley was in the borders near the mouth thereof.1:36 [2:9] ¶ And when my father saw that the waters of the river emptied into the fountain of the Red Sea, he spake unto Laman, saying, O, that thou mightest be like unto this river, continually running into the fountain of all righteousness.1:37 [2:10] And he also spake unto Lemuel: O, that thou mightest be like unto this valley-firm, and steadfast, and immovable in keeping the commandments of YHVH2.1:38a [2:11a] Now this he spake because of the stiff-neckedness of Laman and Lemuel;1:38 [2:11b] For behold, they did murmur in many things against their father because he was a visionary man and had led them out of the land of Jerusalem, to leave the land of their inheritance, and their gold, and their silver, and their precious things, to perish in the wilderness.1:39b [2:11c] And this they said he had done because of the foolish imaginations of his heart.1:40 [2:12a] And thus Laman and Lemuel, being the eldest, did murmur against their father.1:41 [2:12b] And they did murmur because they knew not the dealings of that Elohim who had created them.1:42 [2:13a] Neither did they believe that Jerusalem, that great city, could be destroyed according to the words of the prophets.1:43 [2:13b] And they were like unto the Jews, who were at Jerusalem, who sought to take away the life of my father.1:44 [2:14a] ¶ And it came to pass that my father did speak unto them in the valley of Lemuel, with power, being filled with the Spirit, until their frames did shake before him.1:45 [2:14b] And he did confound them, that they durst not utter against him; wherefore, they did as he commanded them.1:46 [2:15] And my father dwelt in a tent.Click here to become a patron.Notes:This text has been edited from the original to change Greek or English terms to the Hebrew. RAV is the Book of Mormon version more commonly used by Community of Christ and their offshoots, [OPV] is the version more commonly used by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and their offshoots.

Nephi tells us of his father, Lehi giving up their family's worldly goods traveling into the wilderness, taking only the things they will truly need. 1:23 [1:20c] But behold, I, Nephi, will show unto you that the tender mercies of YHVH(1) are over all those whom he hath chosen, because of their faith, to make them mighty even unto the power of deliverance.[OPV Chapter 2]1:24 [2:1a] ¶ For behold, it came to pass that YHVH (1) spake unto my father, yea, even in a dream, and said unto him, Blessed art thou, Lehi, because of the things which thou hast done;1:25 [2:1b] And because thou hast been faithful and declared unto this people the things which I commanded thee, behold, they seek to take away thy life.1:26 [2:2] ¶ And it came to pass that YHVH (1) gave unto to my father teshuvah, even in a dream, that he should take his family and depart into the wilderness.1:27 [2:3] And it came to pass that he was obedient unto the word of YHVH (1); wherefore, he did as YHVH commanded him.1:28 [2:4a] ¶ And it came to pass that he departed into the wilderness.1:29 [2:4b] And he left his house, and the land of his inheritance, and his gold, and his silver, and his precious things, and took nothing with him, save it were his family, and provisions, and tents; and he departed into the wilderness;1:30 [2:5a] And he came down by the borders near the shore of the Red Sea;1:31 [2:5b] And he traveled in the wilderness in the borders which were nearer the Red Sea;1:32 [2:5c] And he did travel in the wilderness with his family, which consisted of my mother Sariah, and my elder brothers, who were Laman, Lemuel, and Sam.Click here to become a patron.Notes:This text has been edited from the original to change Greek or English terms to the Hebrew. RAV is the Book of Mormon version more commonly used by Community of Christ and their offshoots, [OPV] is the version more commonly used by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and their offshoots.

This week we look at Lehi through the eyes of Nephi, and we flee to the wilderness to protect our righteous desires. 1:15 [1:16a] And now, I, Nephi, do not make a full account of the things which my father hath written, for he hath written many things which he saw in visions and in dreams;1:16a [1:16b] And he also hath written many things which he prophesied and spake unto his children, of which I shall not make a full account;1:16b [1:17a] But I shall make an account of my proceedings in my days.1:17 [1:17b] Behold, I make an abridgment of the record of my father upon plates which I have made with mine own hands; wherefore, after I have abridged the record of my father, then will I make an account of mine own life.1:18a [1:18a] ¶ Therefore, I would that ye should know that after YHVH(1)had shown so many marvelous things unto my father Lehi,1:18b [1:18b] Yea, concerning the destruction of Jerusalem, behold, he went forth among the people and began to prophesy and to declare unto them concerning the things which he had both seen and heard.1:19 [1:19a] ¶ And it came to pass that the Jews did mock him because of the things which he testified of them; for he truly testified of their wickedness and their abominations;1:20 [1:19b] And he testified that the things which he saw and heard, and also the things which he read in the book, manifested plainly of the coming of a Messiah and also the redemption of the world.1:21 [1:20a] ¶ And when the Jews heard these things, they were angry with him, yea, even as with the prophets of old, whom they had cast out, and stoned, and slain;1:22 [1:20b] And they also sought his life, that they might take it away.1:23 [1:20c] But behold, I, Nephi, will show unto you that the tender mercies of YHVH are over all those whom he hath chosen, because of their faith, to make them mighty even unto the power of deliverance.[OPV Chapter 2]1:24 [2:1a] ¶ For behold, it came to pass that YHVH spake unto my father, yea, even in a dream, and said unto him, Blessed art thou, Lehi, because of the things which thou hast done;1:25 [2:1b] And because thou hast been faithful and declared unto this people the things which I commanded thee, behold, they seek to take away thy life.1:26 [2:2] ¶ And it came to pass that YHVH gave unto to my father teshuvah (2), even in a dream, that he should take his family and depart into the wilderness.1:27 [2:3] And it came to pass that he was obedient unto the word of YHVH; wherefore, he did as YHVH commanded him.Click here to become a patron.Notes:This text has been edited from the original to change Greek or English terms to the Hebrew. RAV is the Book of Mormon version more commonly used by Community of Christ and their offshoots, [OPV] is the version more commonly used by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and their offshoots.

This week we look at Lehi's vision internally, how it speaks of us and our journey. 1:11a [1:12] ¶ And it came to pass that as he read, he was filled with the Spirit of YHVH(1);1:11b [1:13a] And he read, saying: Wo, wo unto Jerusalem! For I have seen thine abominations;1:12a [1:13b] Yea, and many things did my father read concerning Jerusalem—1:12b [1:13c] That it should be destroyed, and the inhabitants thereof, many should perish by the sword, and many should be carried away captive into Babylon.Support the show Notes: This text has been edited from the original to change Greek or English terms to the Hebrew.  RAV is the Book of Mormon version more commonly used by Community of Christ and their offshoots, [OPV] is the version more commonly used by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and their offshoots.

In this episode we compare Lehi's, Ezekiel’s, and Isaiah's visions, and how they relate to us today. 1:6 [1:7] ¶ And it came to pass that he returned to his own house at Jerusalem; and he cast himself upon his bed, being overcome with Ruach Hakodesh(1) and the things which he had seen;1:7a [1:8a] And being thus overcome with Ruach Hakodesh, he was carried away in a vision, even that he saw the heavens open;1:7b [1:8b] And he thought he saw Yah(2) sitting upon His throne, surrounded with numberless concourses of angels(3) in the attitude of singing and praising their Elohim(4).1:8 [1:9] ¶ And it came to pass that he saw One descending out of the midst of heaven, and he beheld that His luster was above that of the sun at noonday;1:9a [1:10] And he also saw twelve others following him, and their brightness did exceed that of the stars in the firmament;1:9b [1:11a] And they came down and went forth upon the face of the earth;1:10 [1:11b] And The First came and stood before my father, and gave unto him a book, and bade him that he should read.1:11a [1:12] ¶ And it came to pass that as he read, he was filled with the Spirit of YHVH(5);1:11b [1:13a] And he read, saying: Wo, wo unto Jerusalem! For I have seen thine abominations;1:12a [1:13b] Yea, and many things did my father read concerning Jerusalem—1:12b [1:13c] That it should be destroyed, and the inhabitants thereof, many should perish by the sword, and many should be carried away captive into Babylon.Click here to become a patron.Notes:This text has been edited from the original to change Greek or English terms to the Hebrew. RAV is the Book of Mormon version more commonly used by Community of Christ and their offshoots, [OPV] is the version more commonly used by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and their offshoots.

With the Gospel of Judas in the recent apocrypha scripture, Judas doesn't seem as the bad guy. I like to think k that he was the disciple that fully comprehended the mission of Christ. thank you for sharing.
