THE BRICK BOOK OF MORMON

Chapter IV: Abraham, Joseph, and Moses > Jesus and Satan Visit Moses

After Jesus spoke to Moses through the burning bush, he appeared to Moses face-to-face on a mountain top, saying, "You are a likeness of my Only Begotten who will be the Savior, for he is full of grace and truth. But there is no God beside me." (Since Jesus is one with Heavenly Father, he sometimes speaks as if he were the Father. Also: "there is no God beside me" does not mean that mankind cannot become Gods.)

Jesus left, leaving Moses alone until suddenly Satan appeared, saying, "Moses, son of man, worship me." "Go away, Satan," said Moses, "and do not deceive me, for God told me I am a likeness of his Only Begotten, and that I should only serve him."

sources:

Satan then ranted on the earth and shouted, "I am the Only Begotten, worship me!" Moses began to become extremely afraid, and could see the bitterness of hell. But calling on God, he received strength and commanded, "Depart from me, Satan! I only worship one God, the God of glory!" Satan wailed, gnashed his teeth, wept and then departed.

sources:

Now Moses had written about this incident when he wrote the first five books of the Bible, but this and other things were removed from the Bible by wicked men who altered the scriptures. Jesus appeared to Moses again after Satan departed, and said, "You are blessed, Moses, for I, the Almighty, have chosen you to rescue my chosen people from slavery."

sources:

Jesus then gave Moses a vision of all of his creations. Moses looked and saw inhabited worlds as innumerable as the sand on the sea shore, and each one was called an earth. "Why did you create all of these?" asked Moses. "I created them for my own purpose, by my Only Begotten, and the wisdom behind it shall remain in me."

sources:

"I will only tell you about the earth you live on and its inhabitants," said Jesus, "but even though all these other inhabited earths seem innumerable to you, they are mine, and I know them all. As one earth passes away, another is created, and this will continue forever with no end to it, for it is my work and glory to help mortal men become Gods."
