    Understanding the True
    Origins of Mormonism

    The Incredible Story of a Race of Celestial Beings
    that once Came to the Earth...

    by Clare Gregory

    Chapter 24
    The Melchizedek Priesthood

    The mystery of the Eternal Priesthood of Christ is Biblically illustrated by an allegorical witness from the ministry of Melchizedek, a mysterious high priest mentioned in the Old Testament. We know that Melchizedek was the leader of Salem, or called a King of Peace:

      “For this Melchizedek, king of Salem, priest of the most high God, who met Abraham returning from the slaughter of the kings, and blessed him; To whom also Abraham gave a tenth part of all; first being by interpretation King of righteousness, and after that also King of Salem, which is, King of peace; Without father, without mother, without descent, having neither beginning of days, nor end of life; but made like unto the Son of God; abideth a priest continually.” (Hebrews 7:1-3.)

    The writer of Hebrews clearly uses Melchizedek as a type and shadow of Jesus Christ. What is the message of the Bible? What is God trying to teach us about Abraham, Melchizedek, and Christ? Let’s look at the context from the Old Testament. What circumstance sent Melchizedek to meet Abraham?

      “And when Abraham heard that his brother was taken captive, he armed his trained servants, born in his own house, three hundred and eighteen, and pursued them unto Dan. And he divided himself against them, he and his servants, by night, and smote them, and pursued them unto Hobah, which is on the left hand of Damascus. And he brought back all the goods, and also brought again his brother Lot, and his goods, and women also, and people.” (Genesis 14:14-16.)

    What is the situation? Abraham found his brother taken captive by the enemy, and to free his brother, Abraham killed the enemy and brought back the goods. Abraham succeeded in battle, and then Melchizedek meets him, the great High Priest. Thus symbolically, before we meet Jesus Christ, the spiritual Melchizedek, we have our own battles to fight to be blessed by the authority of Jesus. We must repent and struggle with opposition to receive the grace of Christ. And what is that gift of grace? PEACE! Thus, Melchizedek is called the king of Salem, or King of Peace. In the Bible, this man has no genealogy or history of ancestors or posterity. Why? Where does our internal peace come from? It comes from God. It is found in Jesus Christ. Therefore, the symbolism is that Christ is eternal and has no end or beginning. Christ is God. And therefore, his priesthood authority is also ETERNAL.

    We know very little about Melchizedek even though he was greater than Abraham. He is deliberately left a mystery in the Bible. Likewise, we know very little about God. God was incarnate in Jesus Christ. It’s a mystery. Jesus is the King of Peace, and he is greater than Abraham, and thus, greater than Levi and the Law of Moses. What happens IMMEDIATELY after King of Peace meets Abraham?

      “And Melchizedek king of Salem brought forth bread and wine: and he was the priest of the most high God.” (Genesis 14:18)

    Likewise, when we meet Jesus Christ, what does He do? He feeds us with his light, love, and Spirit through the Word of God. He is the bread of life. We make a covenant to remember him through the communion or sacrament of bread and wine (water). And after we eat and partake of the Eternal Word, God then blesses us:

      And he blessed him, and said, “And blessed be the most high God, which hath delivered thine enemies [sin] into thy hand.” (Genesis 14:20.)

    Likewise, as God delivered Abraham from his enemies, God delivers us from sin. Then, as we receive the grace of God, and we are blessed with His love and peace, what do we desire to do? Do we not desire to give back to God all that which he blesses us with? Do we not desire to sacrifice for the Kingdom of God? And thus we read:

      “And he [Abram] gave him tithes [a tenth] of all.” (Genesis 14:20)

    God wants our whole heart. We give 10% to God, but the other 90% is to be used to serve others. We become 100% service minded in building the kingdom of God. And thus, we see Abraham giving the remaining 90% of the spoils of war to his neighboring kings:

      “And the king of Sodom said unto Abraham, Give me the persons, and take the goods to thyself. And Abram said to the king of Sodom, I have lifted up mine hand unto the Lord, the most high God, the possessor of heaven and earth, That I will not take from a thread even to a shoelatcher, and that I will not take anything that is thine, lest thou shouldest say, I have made Abraham rich: Save only that portion of men which went with me, Aner, and Eschol, and Mamre; let them take their portion.” (Genesis 14:21-24)

    It is important to note that the King of Sodom governed a city that was later destroyed by fire. Thus, Abraham teaches us that we give to those who are sinners and who are unrighteous on earth, as well as to our close friends and family. Abraham took none of the goods, revealing his perfect heart. Abraham correctly viewed God as “possessor of Heaven and earth” and gave to others that which he could have taken himself. Our giving entails more than just money, for God owns everything—both temporal [of earth] and eternal [of heaven]. Likewise, when we find the King of Peace, Jesus Christ, and are blessed with peace, we desire to give 10% to God and 90% to all others, even those who don’t deserve it. We learn to love like God does, unconditionally to all.

    For those who are of our own family, or the believers in Christ, we desire that they keep their own things that belong to them, and we do NOT infringe upon them and compel them to offer sacrifice neither to God nor to the world. It is their choice, not ours! Christians must view one another as making individual free-will offerings to serve God and give to others. If we follow the model of Abraham, then we will believe that God is the possessor of all things. We will not meddle in the lives of other Christians. We will let them “take their portion” and let them decide what to do with it. Whether they choose to give it to God or to the world or to keep it themselves, it is their choice, not ours.

    The Mystery of God

    Mormons assume that Melchizedek was a priest that Abraham paid tithes to on a regular basis, but he did not. Melchizedek was a allegorical figure in the Bible that was called to minister to Abraham in a moment of time to be a type and shadow of Christ. His ministry symbolically represents the mystery that God is 100% in Christ. Abraham’s experience in saving Lot and being blessed by Melchizedek was a tutoring experience that prepared him for his great promise from God found in the next verse of Genesis:

      “After these things the word of the Lord came unto Abram in a vision, saying, Fear not, Abram: I am thy shield, and thy exceeding great reward. And Abram said, Lord God, what wilt thou give me, seeing I go childless, and the steward of my house is the Elieser of Damascus? And Abram said, Behold, to me thou hast given no seed: and lo, one born in my house is mine heir. And, behold, the word of the Lord came unto him, saying, This shall not be thine heir; but he that shall come forth out of thine own bowels shall be thine heir.” God then goes on to promise: “And he brought him forth abroad, and said, Look now toward heaven, and tell the stars, if thou be able to number them: and he said unto him, So shall they seed be.” (Gen 15:1-5.)

    Mormons interpret this passage to mean the seed of the physical and spiritual body. The blessings of Abraham are obtained by priesthood “sealings” in the LDS temple. Couples are sealed as husband and wife to bring forth spirit children in the eternities. They are to receive the blessing of becoming gods, having “eternal increase” of their “seed”. The doctrine produces an image of increasing the “stuff” or “elements” that produce “bodies” of matter, either spiritual or physical. The doctrine does not communicate the multiplication of “light and truth”. Let us be clear here. If we ask any LDS what are the ultimate blessings of Godhood are, the mental image that comes to the mind is the physical form of Heavenly Father and Heavenly Mother in heaven that have created millions of “worlds” and have “populated” these worlds with “creations” or organized matter. Thus, the mind immediately takes a carnal or “physical” interpretation of the Word of God.

    However, by understanding the power of the Melchizedek priesthood of Christ taught in Genesis 14, we observe our spiritual seed of light and truth in Christ will be as the stars in heaven. The stars are symbolic of light and truth. They shine like God. And this is true for Abraham’s life. It shines. As I write about Abraham’s life, for example, we become children of Abraham as we see the power and light of God work through him and believe it. God promised Abraham a son, Isaac, and Isaac represents the new covenant of Jesus Christ and the Melchizedek priesthood which is ETERNAL. Ishmael, on the other hand was born of a slave and represents the Law of Moses, or the lesser covenant. This is all explained clearly by Paul in Galatians 3 and 4, but specifically Galatians 4:22-31.

      "For it is written, that Abraham had two sons, the one by a bondmaid, the other by a freewoman. But he who was the bondwoman was born after the flesh; but he of the freewoman was by promise. Which things are an allegory: for these are the two covenants; the one from the Mount Sinai, which gendereth to bondage, which is Agar…Now we, brethren, as Isaac was, are the children of promise…” (Gal 4:22-23,28)

    These are mysteries of the Old Testament that are sealed from anyone who tries to read the Bible and is not born again. But Paul understood clearly, having the keys of the Holy Spirit to unlock many mysteries in the Old Testament.

    Genesis 14 about Melchizedek and Genesis 15 about the promises of Isaac are tied together perfectly. They point to Jesus Christ and the born again process. For example, notice that the Kings of Sodom and Gamorah brought the problem of war to Abraham. Likewise, sin and confrontation come to us without our asking for it. How do we deal with the opposition? Do we run and hide? Has sin taken a loved one away from us? Do we stand up and fight sin like Abraham fought his enemies? If we follow Abraham and fight the devil, we will clean up our lives through self-discipline. Then God will bring the King of Peace, even Jesus Christ, to meet us after the slaughter of sin. As we repent and kill our pride, Jesus will come to us. He will bless us, and we too will have the spiritual blessings of Abraham. Our spiritual influence on others will multiply light and truth in this world and in eternity. Our “spiritual children” who are born again by our personal lives, will come onto Christ and be saved. We become children of Abraham, children of faith. The Word of God will multiply as the stars in heaven! And thus, we become the children of Abraham forever.

    On the other hand, the LDS priesthood teaches us a literal seed of Abraham in the flesh is what God was speaking of. We will become as god with powers to create spirit bodies. Do we see the difference? One teaches that we have the power to organize matter. The other teaches we are used by God to multiply is Word of Truth. Thus, the Mormons have erred in interpreting Abraham’s promise. Why did the Jews miss Jesus Christ? Like the Mormons, they were looking after a god of the flesh, not a God of the Spirit. They were looking for a god to free them from political bondage, not spiritual bondage. They were looking for a god to save their bodies and not their minds and hearts.

    Eternal Order of Melchizedek Priesthood

      “So also Christ glorified not himself to be made an high priest; but he that said unto him, Thou art my Son, to day have I begotten thee. And he saith in another place, Thou art a priest forever after the order of Melchizedek” (Hebrews 5:5-6.)

    The priesthood of Christ is not transferred by human hands; it is not of the earth, but it is the eternal and everlasting. It is Jesus Christ Himself as God. It is God’s power, and Christ received this power and authority before he came to earth. He has possessed this priesthood FOREVER. Melchizedek’s ministry represents the eternal order of God.

    The word "order" is significant in understanding God. Human beings think sequentially--one thought at a time. It is part of our world of time. The order of the Levitical priesthood is patterned after time, or this world, and therefore we find process and procedures that are "ordered" in sequence, so that they could be applied on earth. All the ordinances and symbolism of the Old Testament are earthly actions that point to the eternal priesthood of Jesus Christ.

    The priesthood after the "order of Melchizedek” is not sequential, but functions outside of time. Thus, God can make trillions upon trillions of decisions simultaneously with his priesthood authority. The ORDER of decision making is eternal, as God is eternal. It is a mystery to humans beings. It is impossible to understand how God does this. Jesus is God. That statement alone must be taken on faith, for we can not understand how Jesus or God did what he did.

    Understanding how God makes decisions, does the "order of Melchizedek" mean we have the authority to govern spiritual things using sequential thoughts passed through human filters who are "prophets" who hold keys in earthly tabernacles? Is that the order of the Melchizedek priesthood? How does Hinkley order his decisions? One at a time? Or a trillion at time?

    Can we not see why only Jesus Christ can be King with his authority? Can we not see that governments will never work perfectly until GOD HIMSELF comes to be King? When Jesus does come again, then the priesthood order of Melchizedek will be fully implemented on earth, and Zion will flourish. Each person will turn their lives over to God, and God will make trillions upon trillions of decisions through his people simultaneously, and He will guide his people daily by the Holy Spirit.

    Mormonism: Temporal Order of the Melchizedek

    When I was a Mormon I did some deep reflection on the word “order”. After extensive study and research, I concluded that “ordering” of our decisions is truly the foundation of God’s kingdom. The following is a sample of what I wrote when LDS. At the time I wrote what I’m about to share, I did not understand that I was using the word “order” in a purely human context and not form God’s perspective. Thus, I was interpreting “order” based on “sequential thought and priority”. The concepts I share apply beautifully to our world of existence in time, but they do NOT apply to the eternal priesthood of God after the order of Melchizedek. God makes trillions upon trillions of decisions simultaneously by that priesthood power. This incomprehensible ability distinguishes his mind as being higher than human thought.

    Consequently, in my writing that follows I misapply the truths I learned as a human being through “self-discipline” of the flesh to God’s eternal realm. The “flesh” and “time” actually belong under the baptism of water, or the baptism of John, in which God expects us to control our flesh in earthly paradigms—for the flesh is subject to time. But after water baptism, then comes the baptism of fire of the eternal power of the Word, and we receive a touch from the eternal mind of God, which has no beginning and no end. We receive the eternal priesthood of Jesus Christ as He enters our lives. And this touch of grace is what saves us.

    Here’s what I wrote as a Mormon. I’ve interjected my current thinking in brackets [ ]:

    After the Order of the Son of God

    Originally the Melchizedek Priesthood was called the Holy Priesthood after the Order of the Son of God.

      “There are, in the church, two priesthoods ,namely, the Melchizedek and Aaronic, including the Levitical Priesthood. Why the first is called the Melchizedek Priesthood is because Melchizedek was such a great high priest [spiritual giant]. Before his day it was called the Holy Priesthood, after the Order of the Son of God. But out of respect or reverence to the name of the Supreme being, to avoid too frequent repentance of his name, they, the Church, in ancient days, called that priesthood after Melchizedek, or the Melchizedek priesthood.” (See D&C 107:1-4).

    Of all the words God chose to describe His priesthood, he chose to use the word order. Let's examine the concept of order more closely.

    I am by profession a financial analyst. My job is to take numbers and order and re-sort them into meaningful information. How I order the information makes all the difference in the meaning and story behind the numbers. This is one application of the word order. Similarly, the priesthood has the power to order or rearrange the elements. The creation of the earth, for example, is an ordering of the elements into an organized state. Another example of the concept of order is the creative powers of our minds. We have the mental power to order ideas in different combinations. This power is then transferred to the physical world to produce a meaningful peace of work. It is how the elements are combined that define our creation. Art, dance, and music are further examples. In art, it is the order of color, shade, texture, and so on that bring meaning to a peace of art. In dance, it is the order of movement and timing. In music, it is the order of notes, rhythm, tempo, and so on. In fact, pick any field of endeavor, and you will find that the underlying principle of success is how the elements are ordered that make the difference. Those who learn to advance their creative powers to order and reorder spiritual and physical components can experience great joy in their creations. For example, suppose I want to build a book case. I begin by thinking about what I need, such as wood, nails, hammer, saw, paint, time to do it, and so on. After mentally ordering the components, I set out to complete the physical task. Soon, my spiritual creation becomes an ordered physical creation. I feel joy and satisfaction in my accomplishment and in my ability to create and order the elements. This ordering brings joy to the world by providing useful products and services. The act of creating itself is a joy. Watch a child color a picture with crayons. Observe the joy they experience from their creation, not to mention the smiles on the faces of the parents.


    The opposite of order is disorder. Sin in most cases, if we examine it very carefully, is caused by nothing more than a spiritual being who has not been able to control the timing and order of a decision. Premarital sex, for example, is a good example of doing something out of order. There is nothing wrong with our procreative powers, it's the timing that has got to be right. Our spirit must control the passions of the moment. In a family situation when there is fighting, often it's simply a matter of taking turns and waiting for the proper time to make a decision. The same is true of eating, sleeping, and working. Usually, it's not so much that we can't have that piece of pie or go on that vacation or receive this blessing or that blessing. It really is a matter of waiting for the right time to experience the blessing or provide the service.

    Ecclesiastes records:

      "To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under heaven. A time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted. A time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up, a time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance; a time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together; a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing; a time to get, and a time to lose; a time to keep, and a time to cast away; a time to rend, and a time to sew, a time to keep silence, and a time to speak; a time to love, and a time to hate; a time of war, and a time of peace." (See Eccl 3:1-8)

    The lesson being taught in this scripture is far deeper than we might realize! For example, it’s a matter of deciding to put the toy away first before taking out the next one. It's a matter of hanging up the towel right when your are finished with showering, rather than waiting and forgetting. It's a matter of hanging up your shirt right when you change it, rather than throwing it on the floor to be picked up by someone else. Finally, it’s a matter of repenting today, rather than procrastinating until tomorrow. As we can learn to control ourselves and order our decisions in the proper sequence, many of our problems will take care of themselves. It really is that simple!

    [Interjected comment: It is interesting, that I picked the writings above from the Ecclesiastics that had to do with TIME, isn’t it? Notice all these actions are temporal—John’s baptism—now watch me incorrectly mix the idea with the LDS Melchizedek priesthood, which is not eternal:]

    With this perspective, consider again what the priesthood was originally called: The Holy Priesthood after the Order of the Son of God. God is Holy and does not sin because he has self-control and power over his ability to order his choices. The holy priesthood has eternal authority and power to bring order to the decisions that are made in the universe. The priesthood is named after the Order of the Son of God because Jesus is the perfect example of self-control and of ordering his decisions under the direction of our Father. Jesus respects our Heavenly Father's priesthood authority and understands his relationship to God as his child, and therefore, is willing to submit to that authority by saying, "Not my will, but thine be done." (Luke 22:42.) Jesus is willing to suffer "the will of the Father in all things from the beginning." (3Ne 11:11.)

    [Interjected comment: This is the natural conclusion of Mormonism--to have everyone, even Jesus, obey a god who works through a hierarchy of angels and priesthood authority. But God doesn’t think nor work this way at all. He is beyond time and is ETERNAL. There is, however, a spiritual being that makes one decision at a time and who is trying to be a god—and that is Lucifer. The false hierarchical principle is found in the D&C 84:35-39: “And also all they who receive this priesthood receive me, saith the Lord; For he that receiveth my servants receiveth me; and he that receiveth me receiveth my Father; and he that receiveth Father receiveth my Father’s Kingdom, therefore all that my father hath will be given him. And this is according to the oath and covenant of the which belongeth to the [LDS] priesthood.” This priesthood pattern is the way Satan operates. He structures his kingdom in a tops-down hierarchical organization that implements his desires and principles. It is not the eternal priesthood of God, who decides everything simultaneously, based His omniscience. Now watch what I conclude next:]

    Even our Heavenly Father, ordained in His responsibility as a God, is accountable to those gods who taught, trained, and ordained him to that position. [Sounds like earthly operations in businesses and governments, doesn’t it?] The principle that overshadows all other gospel principles in relation to our exaltation is submission to the Holy priesthood after “The Order of the Son of God.” Heaven is based on a hierarchy of authority. Obedience to that authority brings order and peace to the Kingdom of God.

    As we magnify our callings God gives us, we become God’s servants. We learn to operate within the bounds of the holy priesthood. We learn to control and order our decisions. A person who has learned to order and control his decisions within the bounds and limits of the holy priesthood authority can be trusted to wait for the right time to provide service or to receive gifts. Such a person has learned to work interdependently with his brothers and sisters. Such a person becomes a part of the body of Christ and understands that he or she is part of a greater spiritual system that is connected together by the priesthood and its ordinances. Such a person will contribute to the good will of maintaining peace and order in the Kingdom of God.

    Contrast this with a person who adamantly believes only his way is right, that his ideas are better than those in authority over him and who does not follow the counsel of the priesthood. He can not function as part of a system because he can't get connected with the whole. He's on his own, independent of the authority of God.

    Such a self-willed person may actually be smarter than his priesthood leaders. He may be more educated and knowledgeable. He may even be absolutely correct in his differing viewpoint when compared to the priesthood leader's decision. In fact, it's even possible that the priesthood leader is in darkness, fallen victim to sin, but still in his position of authority. That is not the point. What is absolutely critical to establishing peace in the Kingdom of God is a system that maintains order in the decision making process. The priesthood authority is more important than who is right or who is wrong. It is the fundamental structure that provides the opportunity for having an environment where orderly decisions can be made. We follow our priesthood leaders not because they are more competent or smarter or know more, but because they have they authority from God to lead us.

    This last paragraph is the heart of Mormonism, and in our human world of time the LDS priesthood works beautifully! Humans by nature think sequentially and desire orderliness and a system they can see and understand “naturally”. On the outside, the LDS Kingdom is clean, harmonious, and well-structured. This brings security and peace to human beings. It provides a stable environment to raise families. But, alas, the Mormons will one day realize that the priesthood they believe in only works in time. It is designed only for sequential thinking and is not from the Eternal Spirit of God.

    In the Bible God’s eternal priesthood concepts all fall into place perfectly in the allegory of Melchizedek. For example, Melchizedek defines God as the “possessor of all heaven and earth” (Gen 14:19.). As an owner of all things, God is also in control of all things—both in time and eternity. There is nothing in time or eternity that slips past his glance without his approval of an even occurring. Even sin, he allows to happen, but if he wants to stop it, he can. The great flood is an example.

    Book of Mormon Light

    The Book of Mormons teaches:

    “Now this Melchizedek priesthood was a king over the land of Salem: and his people had waxed strong in iniquity and abomination; yea, they had all gone astray; they were full of all manner of wickedness; But Melchizedek having exercised mighty faith, and received the office of the high priesthood according to the holy order of God, did preach repentance unto his people. And behold, they did repent; and Melchizedek did establish peace in the land in his days; therefore he was called the prince of peace, for he was the king of Salem; and he did reign under his father. Now, there were many before him, and also there were many afterward, but none were greater; therefore, of him they have more particular mention.” (Alma 13:17-19.)

    Though extremely subtle, this counterfeit light in the Book of Mormon defines the power of God in the LDS priesthood that is transferred to mankind by the laying on of hands. Salvation is through a spiritual giant who has mighty faith and power in this priesthood to preach the doctrine of repentance. This is Mormonism at its core. These verses describe the Nephilim [spiritual giants] salvation through faith. It is not through faith in God’s Word, but in the faith of human beings [and fallen angles of light] who believe in their own ability to call down the powers of heaven in behalf of others, using the LDS priesthood power. In Alma 13, Melchizedek is finally hailed as the human god who saved Salem, and not the True God that saves us by his grace and love. Rather than Melchizedek pointing to Christ, the Book of Mormon uses the power of God to point to Melchizedek: “Now, there were many before him, and also there were many afterward, but none were greater; therefore, of him they have more particular mention.”

    The Book of Mormon God is not the God of the Bible. The God of the Bible had a human being, Melchizedek, play a high priest role that would be interjected into the Old Testament to symbolize Jesus Christ and His Eternal priesthood. Abraham was blessed by the word that Melchizedek spoke and not by the “laying on of hands”. The Bible is clear to omit that Melchizedek had a father. The Book of Mormon completely destroys the symbolism of Christ being the one eternal God. It declares Melchizedek had a father, and thus, brings the human element of Melchizedek into the LDS scriptures. And thus, the Mormons can NOT use my interpretation. The LDS priesthood is passed from earthly father to son.

    The writer of Hebrews goes into great detail to explain that Jesus Christ is our “Melchizedek” high priest, being a type and shadow of the first Melchizedek of the Old Testament. The Nephilim mix true principles with the false legalistic priesthood notion. Study carefully:

    “Now these ordinances [of the priesthood] were given after this manner, that thereby the people might look forward on the Son of God, it being a type of his order [which is true], OR IT BEING HIS ORDER [which is false], and this that they might look forward to him for a remission of their sins, that they might enter into the rest of the Lord [his peace].” (Alma 13: 10,16.)

    Here we see the “fudging” of concepts by the Nephilim spirit. They say the priesthood ordinances are types of Christ, but then they say it IS HIS ORDER, which interjection is false. These are deliberate and calculated barbs of lies imbedded into a book that appears to contain the pure gospel of Jesus Christ. The entire 13th chapter of Alma reeks of half- truths, building on the pre-earth concept, faith, and repentance, and then, mixing these truths with a false legalistic priesthood. Finally, the chapter ends with the Nephilim’s triumphant doctrine that menkind’s faith and repentance causes salvation by the LDS priesthood.

    Whereas the LDS interpretation is not clear regarding Melchizedek recorded in Genesis 14 and 15, the Christian view fits the Bible perfectly. I challenge and LDS to force-fit the LDS priesthood view into the Old Testament, if they can. Can anyone tie both chapters together and make any sense of an LDS temple ordinances that produces endless spirit bodies as we become gods and goddesses? Where is the legalistic view of Melchizedek being a “mighty spiritual giant” preaching repentance and saving the people? Where is the symbolism of fighting Satan and finding Peace in Christ, the eternal God? No where.

      “But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed.” (Gal 1:8.)
