Acts 12: Until the day
Acts 1:2. Until the day in which he was taken up, after that he through the Holy Ghost had given commandments; unto the apostles whom he had chosen:
LDS believe that the Holy Ghost(?s):
- is Christ’s minister
- speaks and acts in the place and stead of the Son
- mission is to testify of Jesus
- reveals the mind and will of the Lord
- to say what Christ would say if personally present
- So complete, whole, and total is this commission and power that the Holy Ghost speaks in the first person as though he were Christ: Moses 5:10: And in that day Adam blessed God and was filled, and began to prophesy concerning all the families of the earth, saying: Blessed be the name of God, for because of my transgression my eyes are opened, and in this life I shall have joy, and again in the flesh I shall see God.
- In most instances when God’s prophets and apostles say: "Thus saith Christ the Lord," they are announcing Christ’s words as revealed to them by the power of the Holy Ghost.
The Holy Ghost gives commandments today like he did in biblical times.
