King James John 5:19
Then answered Jesus and said unto them,
Verily, verily, I say unto you,
The Son can do nothing of himself,
but what he seeth the Father do:
for what things soever he doeth,
these also doeth the Son likewise.
There is no correction to this verse or any of the surrounding verses in the Joseph Smith Translation. Why is this important?
Here we have JESUS stating that the FATHER did everything JESUS did. I take that to mean, that just as CHRIST worked out an infinite Atonement to save the people of this Earth, CHRIST's Father, the MAN OF HOLINESS (Moses 6), worked out an atonement previous to CHRIST's, but for a different world.
I find this awe-inspiring! Here is the answer for anyone who wants to demean THE MOST HIGH GOD by insinuating He left the hard stuff for His Son. The FATHER had already been a Savior to a planet previous to CHRIST's work here. The FATHER is no coward, and he did not pass the buck to JESUS. Anyone wanting to be a God, has to serve as a Savior. Think about that for awhile.
I believe that the FATHER's atonement took place on the very first planet that He and his Queen created. I further believe that while the FATHER was mortal on that first Earth working out the atonement for the first humans, His Divine Queen was acting as the GOD in Heaven. In essence she was a single Heavenly Mother for a short period of time, while GOD MOST HIGH was serving Their children by suffering the horrific weight of the children's sins. When the FATHER finished the first atonement He returned to His Wife's side to co-rule the first Earth. These Two now rule all creation, but they appointed JESUS to be the God of this Earth.
Without the FATHER working out the first atonement, no person on any planet could be saved. There would be no JESUS to save us, because there would have been no FATHER to save JESUS.
Merry CHRISTmas and may 2019 be the year we all get much closer to GOD!
