I had an amazing revelation a few days ago. I was told that Joseph Smith was approached by an angel with the gold plates of which has been called the Book of Mormon. After he had copied what was on the gold plates the angel and the gold plates disappeared. The angel was not from the Lord but from Satan and the gold plates were fiction. Joseph Smith was deceived. If he had read his scripture he would have known this.
Gal 1:8 But even if we or an angel from heaven should preach to you a gospel contrary to the one we preached to you, let him be accursed.
Gal 1:9 As we have said before, so now I say again: If anyone is preaching to you a gospel contrary to the one you received, let him be accursed.
How important is Paul in writing the scriptures. The Apostle Peter wrote,
2Pe 3:15 And count the patience of our Lord as salvation, just as our beloved brother Paul also wrote to you according to the wisdom given him,
2Pe 3:16 as he does in all his letters when he speaks in them of these matters. There are some things in them that are hard to understand, which the ignorant and unstable twist to their own destruction, as they do the other Scriptures.
Peter recommended Paul who in turn told us not to believe angels who give us a “different” Gospel.
Paul wrote Eph 2:8 For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God,
Eph 2:9 not a result of works, so that no one may boast.
Rom 10:9 because, if you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.
Rom 10:10 For with the heart one believes and is justified, and with the mouth one confesses and is saved.
Rom 10:11 For the Scripture says, “Everyone who believes in him will not be put to shame.”
Joseph Smith was unfortunately deceived by a spiritual being. It is time for that deception to end.
