Another Testament of Jesus Christ! August 29, 2014

Knowing that doubt, disbelief, and misinformation would remain after centuries of darkness, our loving Heavenly Father brought forth an ancient volume of holy scripture comparable to the Bible, which contains the fulness of the everlasting gospel of Jesus Christ. This volume of holy scripture provides convincing evidence that Joseph Smith is a true prophet of God. This record is the Book of Mormon: Another Testament of Jesus Christ.

Joseph Smith was directed by a heavenly messenger named Moroni to a hill where gold plates had lain hidden for centuries. These gold plates contained the writings of prophets giving an account of God’s dealings with some of the ancient inhabitants of the Americas. Joseph Smith translated the contents of these plates by the power of God. The prophets in the Book of Mormon knew about the mission of the Savior and taught His gospel. After His Resurrection, Christ appeared to these people. He taught them His gospel and established His Church. The Book of Mormon proves that “God does inspire men and call them to his holy work in this age and generation, as well as in generations of old” (D&C 20:11). In order to know that the Book of Mormon is true, a person must read, ponder, and pray about it. The honest seeker of truth will soon come to feel that the Book of Mormon is the word of God.

Need For Restoration August 27, 2014

Filed under: Uncategorized — Unwavering Love @ 11:52 pm

Joseph Smith lived in the United States, which was perhaps the only country to enjoy religious freedom at the time. It was at a time of great religious excitement in the eastern United States. His family members were deeply religious and constantly sought for truth. But many ministers claimed to have the true gospel. Joseph desired “to know which of all the sects was right,” (Joseph Smith—History 1:18). The Bible taught there was “one Lord, one faith, one baptism” (Ephesians 4:5). Joseph attended different churches, but he remained confused about which church he should join. He later wrote:

“So great were the confusions and strife among the different denominations, that it was impossible for a person young as I was … to come to any certain conclusion who was right and who was wrong. … In the midst of this war of words and tumult of opinions, I often said to myself: What is to be done? Who of all these parties are right; or, are they all wrong together? If any one of them be right, which is it, and how shall I know it?” (Joseph Smith—History 1:8, 10).

 

As Joseph sought truth among the different faiths, he turned to the Bible for guidance. He read, “If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him” (James 1:5). Because of this passage, Joseph decided to ask God what he should do. In the spring of 1820 he went to a nearby grove of trees and knelt in prayer. He described his experience:

 

“I saw a pillar of light exactly over my head, above the brightness of the sun, which descended gradually until it fell upon me. … When the light rested upon me I saw two Personages, whose brightness and glory defy all description, standing above me in the air. One of them spake unto me, calling me by name and said, pointing to the other—This is My Beloved Son. Hear Him!” (Joseph Smith—History 1:16–17).

I KNOW Joseph Smith saw God the Father and Jesus Christ because I prayed about it. There is a lot of confusion in the world today and at times I have felt confused just like this young boy. I love how the Bible lead Joseph to pray to truly ask God which church he should join! Its really simple I mean think about what I am going to say with real intent… I say this because I have studied and have been in everyone one of these scenarios or know people that have… And please do not take this personally really think about it…

Why do so many religions hate and trash talk the Mormons or The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints more than any other religion?

No one has ever proven this Religion wrong because they do not have proof and we are still growing in number.

People have told me they would believe and be baptized in the true church if we show them the gold plates but really would you really be baptized? seeing isn’t believing believing is seeing. I have never seen a million dollars but because I didn’t see it doesn’t mean its not there. If A young boy Saw God The Father and Jesus Christ and I was not present doesn’t mean it didn’t happen.

People who have left the church leave because they can not keep certain commandments or its just to hard to live. People get offended but that’s not the real reason they leave they want to blame it on someone and use that as an excuse.

If you believed and have faith in your religion and you know its true you would be a faithful saint no matter how people treat you because you go to church for God and yourself and no one else.

How does a young boy with a third grade education make up a book with real life stories in it and uses a language he has never heard?

Tell me why being a preacher is a job and you get paid for doing the service of God? Also when preachers get certified or go to school to become a preacher they apply for whatever faith will hire them.

Why do some religions treat the Bible like a buffet living only the doctrine they want to live. You cant pick and choose what the Bible states you either live it all or you dont.

If God is the same yesterday, today, and forever and it was important to have a prophet in the old days why wouldn’t there be a prophet today? There is a Prophet today named Thomas S. Monson (By their fruits ye shall know them)

If you are truly christian and follow after the example of Jesus Christ you would love and serve others and not tear anyone down and respect what others believe.

The Bible talks about tithing, temples, baptism, baptism for the dead, prophets, priesthood, apostles, service, love, restoration of the gospel, miracles, and most of all JESUS CHRIST and we have the Gospel in its entirety the same church that Jesus established when He was on earth is here now in the fullness.

The truth is what causes people to change and when we learn truth we live it or feel guilty about it. Lets be honest a lot of people are afraid of change they are happy and comfortable with their lives and settle for whatever. God is not a comfortable God if he was we would not fear Him or do what he asks.

I know God doesn’t change if so He would cease to be God. Just because the world changes and the values change doesn’t make it ok to follow the worlds way of living. You can not follow God and follow the world at the same time you do have a choice to make which side your on. Which reminds me of the scripture You can not serve two masters (luke 16:13)

I am no perfect saint no one is except Christ and I will follow him and keep His commandments because I love him and I will see him again! There is a plan for you God will tell you Truth because He is Truth and He needs you on his side when He comes again! I plead with you please study if you are confused and looking for truth. Dont trust the arm of flesh dont take my word for it. Ask and ye shall receive God will tell you truth do not be afraid to live it!

The Great Apostasy August 25, 2014

Filed under: Uncategorized — Unwavering Love @ 9:31 pm

After the death of Jesus Christ, wicked people persecuted the Apostles and Church members and killed many of them. With the death of the Apostles, priesthood keys and the presiding priesthood authority were taken from the earth. The Apostles had kept the doctrines of the gospel pure and maintained the order and standard of worthiness for Church members. Without the Apostles, over time the doctrines were corrupted, and unauthorized changes were made in Church organization and priesthood ordinances, such as baptism and conferring the gift of the Holy Ghost.

Without revelation and priesthood authority, people relied on human wisdom to interpret the scriptures and the principles and ordinances of the gospel of Jesus Christ. False ideas were taught as truth. Much of the knowledge of the true character and nature of God the Father, His Son Jesus Christ, and the Holy Ghost was lost. The doctrines of faith in Jesus Christ, repentance, baptism, and the gift of the Holy Ghost became distorted or forgotten. The priesthood authority given to Christ’s Apostles was no longer present on the earth. This apostasy eventually led to the emergence of many churches.

apostate

After centuries of spiritual darkness, truth-seeking men and women protested against current religious practices. They recognized that many of the doctrines and ordinances of the gospel had been changed or lost. They sought for greater spiritual light, and many spoke of the need for a restoration of truth. They did not claim, however, that God had called them to be a prophet. Instead, they tried to reform teachings and practices that they believed had been changed or corrupted. Their efforts led to the organization of many Protestant churches. This Reformation resulted in an increased emphasis on religious freedom, which opened the way for the final Restoration.

The Savior’s Apostles foretold this universal apostasy. They also foretold that the gospel of Jesus Christ and His Church would be restored once more upon the earth.

The Savior’s Earthly Ministry August 22, 2014

Filed under: Uncategorized — Unwavering Love @ 11:15 pm

A few hundred years before the birth of Jesus Christ, people again fell into apostasy. But when the Savior began His mortal ministry He established His Church again on the earth.

Heavenly Father sent His Son to the earth to atone for the sins of all mankind and overcome death: “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son … that the world through him might be saved” (John 3:16–17). Our Heavenly Father sent His Son, Jesus Christ, to take upon Him, by His suffering, the sins of all who would live on this earth and to overcome physical death. The Savior made an infinite atoning sacrifice so that if we have faith in Him, repent, are baptized, receive the Holy Ghost, and endure to the end, we can receive forgiveness of our sins and enter and follow the path that will lead us to eternal life in God’s presence (see 2 Nephi 31:13–21).

During His earthly ministry, the Savior taught His gospel and performed many miracles. He called twelve men to be His Apostles and laid His hands on their heads to give them priesthood authority. He organized His Church, fulfilled prophecy, and was rejected and crucified. Most important, He completed the Atonement. The Son of God, the Lord Jesus Christ, completed all that His Heavenly Father sent Him to do.

Before the Savior’s death and Resurrection, He gave His Apostles authority to teach His gospel, perform the ordinances of salvation, and establish His Church in the world.

I know that I am a daughter of Heavenly Father and He loves me! Jesus Christ is His son! Jesus Christ came to earth to teach us the gospel and be our example! The most important reason He came was to fulfill His Father’s will The Atonement! The atonement was an act of love and the Savior was ready and willing! I know Jesus Christ has felt every feeling I have felt including my successes and failures. How I know this truth is that I never felt alone during my suffering He was always there and I would pray and my heart would be filled with love, peace, and joy! I love Jesus Christ He is my light and salvation and without Him there would be no me! I invite you to learn about the Savior through the Bible and Book of Mormon but most of all through a living Prophet who receives revelation for the whole world! The Lord loves us and he wouldn’t abandon us thats why the church He set up is restored in its fullness today never to be taken away from the earth! IMG_2679forgiven_large_1

 

Heavenly Father Reveals His Gospel in Every Dispensation August 20, 2014

Filed under: Uncategorized — Unwavering Love @ 9:39 pm

One important way that God shows His love for us is by calling prophets, who are given the priesthood—the power and authority given to man to act in God’s name for the salvation of His children. Prophets learn the gospel of Jesus Christ by revelation. They in turn teach the gospel to others and testify of Jesus Christ as the Savior and Redeemer. The teachings of prophets are found in sacred books called scriptures.

 

Whenever people choose to disregard, disobey, or distort any gospel principle or ordinance, whenever they reject the Lord’s prophets, or whenever they fail to endure in faith, they distance themselves from God and begin to live in spiritual darkness. Eventually this leads to a condition called apostasy. When widespread apostasy occurs, God withdraws His priesthood authority to teach and administer the ordinances of the gospel.

 

noah-building-ark_1179618_inl

God revealed the gospel of Jesus Christ to Adam and gave him priesthood authority. Adam was the first prophet on the earth. By revelation, Adam learned of mankind’s proper relationship with God the Father, His Son Jesus Christ, and the Holy Ghost; of the Atonement and Resurrection of Jesus Christ; and of the first principles and ordinances of the gospel. Adam and Eve taught their children these truths and encouraged them to develop faith and to live the gospel in all aspects of their lives. Adam was followed by other prophets, but over time the posterity of Adam rejected the gospel and fell into apostasy, choosing to be unrighteous.

 

Thus began the pattern of prophetic dispensations that makes up much of the recorded history of the Old Testament. Heavenly Father revealed His gospel through direct communication to prophets such as Noah, Abraham, and Moses. Each prophet was called by God to begin a new dispensation of the gospel. To each of these prophets God granted priesthood authority and revealed eternal truths. Unfortunately, in each dispensation people eventually used their agency to choose to reject the gospel and then fell into apostasy.

The Gospel Blesses Families! August 19, 2014

Filed under: Uncategorized — Unwavering Love @ 10:40 pm

The restored gospel blesses and helps husbands and wives, parents and children as they strive to develop stronger relationships and spiritual strength in their families. These blessings are available now and in eternity. The gospel of Jesus Christ provides help with current concerns and challenges.

Because families are ordained of God, they are the most important social unit in time and in eternity. God has established families to bring happiness to His children, allow them to learn correct principles in a loving atmosphere, and prepare them for eternal life. The home is the best place to teach, learn, and apply principles of the gospel of Jesus Christ. A home established on gospel principles will be a place of refuge and safety. It will be a place where the Spirit of the Lord can abide, blessing family members with peace, joy, and happiness. Through prophets in every age, including our own, God has revealed His plan of happiness for individuals and families.
