SERVANTS AND SONS


Imagine at Mt. Sinai with all the lightning, thunder, smoke and the threat of death to any person or animal that even came close to the mountain, and how the people shuddered with fear as God was soon to speak His commandments. How would it have been if, after God had spoken through Moses and Moses had come down and shown the people the tablets, that someone had stepped forward and said "Well, thank you God for the revelation of your will, now let me just add a few words. I don’t think 10 are quite enough. Here, let me add number eleven.” What would have happened to such a man? Why everyone agrees that such a man would have been swallowed up by the earth for his heresy, not to mention arrogance. No one at that point would have even, in their wildest imaginings, would dare think of doing such a thing. And that was the law through Moses! How much worse it will be, when God has spoken through Jesus, His son, who is deity, for those who have stepped forward and added such writings as, the Book of Mormon, the Koran, the Pearl of Great Price, etc., etc.


Let all the world keep our mouths shut in silence before the ultimate and final revelation from God. Jesus himself illustrated this in Mt. 21 in the parable of the king who sent servants and the people killed them, and he said surely if I send my son, they will listen to him, and when the son arrived, they killed him too! The word from a servant of the king carries a lot of weight, but what about a personal word from the Kings Son? People had better listen closely to what the Son says.
