From Eternity to Eternity - Even Jesus Christ

"Hearken and listen to the voice of him who is from all eternity to all eternity, the Great I Am, even Jesus Christ—The light and the life of the world; a light which shineth in darkness and the darkness comprehendeth it not." As the Savior followed the Father in all things, even to Gethsemane and Golgotha, may we similarly follow the Savior in all things we may be called to go through, and to have the spirit to be with us for time, and to live in the presence of God and the Lamb for all eternity.

The Second Coming of Christ

The Savior said of his second coming:
"Hereafter shall ye see the Son of man sitting on the right hand of power, and coming in the clouds of heaven." (Matthew 26:64 http://www.lds.org/scriptures/nt/matt/26.64)

When he comes:

When the Son of man shall come in his glory, and all the holy angels with him, then shall he sit upon the throne of his glory:...Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand, Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world:" (Matthew 25:31,34 http://www.lds.org/scriptures/nt/matt/25.31,34 )

May we all live our lives to be ready for that day, no matter what side of the veil we will be on at that day.

For the Blessings of Liberty - Captain Moroni


Please take a moment to read what Moroni did when freedom was threatened, and of what kind of man of God he was. May each of us be like him, for if all of us were, the very powers of hell would be shaken forever.

"And it came to pass that he rent his coat; and he took a piece thereof, and wrote upon it—In memory of our God, our religion, and freedom, and our peace, our wives, and our children—and he fastened it upon the end of a pole.

And he fastened on his head-plate, and his breastplate, and his shields, and girded on his armor about his loins; and he took the pole, which had on the end thereof his rent coat, (and he called it the title of liberty) and he bowed himself to the earth, and he prayed mightily unto his God for the blessings of liberty to rest upon his brethren, so long as there should a band of Christians remain to possess the land—" (Alma 46:13 http://bit.ly/12oIdBb )

A bit more about Moroni:

"Yea, verily, verily I say unto you, if all men had been, and were, and ever would be, like unto Moroni, behold, the very powers of hell would have been shaken forever; yea, the devil would never have power over the hearts of the children of men." (Alma 48:17 http://bit.ly/1dnRJOJ )

O Jerusalem...


"I testify that Jesus Christ, born in Bethlehem, was and is the Only Begotten of the Father, the Lamb of God. He chose from before the foundations of the earth to be your Savior, my Savior, and the Savior of all we will ever know or meet."

—Henry B. Eyring, "Always", Ensign, Liahona, October 1999
From the artist: Greg Olsen about the picture, O Jerusalem:

“O Jerusalem, Jerusalem…how often would I have gathered thy children together, even as a hen gathereth her chickens under her wings…”

This is a Messianic exclamation of profound concern and unconditional love for all who have lost their way and suffer while wandering in spiritual darkness. As the slanting rays of the sun reflect upon the rooftops of Old Jerusalem, Christ reflects upon His life’s mission and upon those He came to serve and bless. His gaze takes in the glistening gold and marble of Herod’s Temple and the smoke of burnt offerings upon the altar. He was keenly aware that soon He would offer Himself up as the true Passover Lamb - “ the Lamb of God.” Here, upon the Mount of Olives, Jesus could see the day, like His mortal ministry, coming to a close. However, a new day always dawns and there is hope and comfort in His words, “Lo, I am with you always.” Just as He looked down upon the traveling pilgrims entering Jerusalem, He watches still from yet a higher vantage point, ready to extend His protective wing to all who seek Him."

Greg Olsen -1997

The Good Samaritan

Such a powerful lesson is the parable of the Good Samaritan. What we do matters, and how we help others as the Savior would have us do is what will be of most worth to us and him.

"But a certain Samaritan, as he journeyed, came where he was: and when he saw him, he had compassion on him,

And went to him, and bound up his wounds, pouring in oil and wine, and set him on his own beast, and brought him to an inn, and took care of him.

And on the morrow when he departed, he took out two pence, and gave them to the host, and said unto him, Take care of him; and whatsoever thou spendest more, when I come again, I will repay thee.

Which now of these three, thinkest thou, was neighbour unto him that fell among the thieves?

And he said, He that shewed mercy on him. Then said Jesus unto him, Go, and do thou likewise." (Luke 10:25-37)

"Behold, I am Jesus Christ, whom the prophets testified shall come into the world. And behold, I am the light and the life of the world..." (3 Nephi 11:10-11 http://bit.ly/12Rtrnb). The Savior also said

"Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light." (Matthew 11:29-30 https://www.lds.org/scriptures/nt/matt/11.29-30?lang=eng#28 ). May we all come to know the love of the Savior of our souls, have him take our burdens, and in him find rest.

Strength of Israel

Please take a moment to read all of this.  The Blessings of the Gospel of Christ are for all. 

All who are members of the Church of Jesus Christ are members of the house of Israel, and great are the promises made to them. 

Christ is the Strength of Israel.  On him hinges the entire plan of salvation, and through him and his servants the gospel will be preached to every creature, according to his commandments. 

Mark 16:5 says "Go ye into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature."

Before the last day, every person who will or has ever lived upon the earth will have the chance to be blessed with the promises of the house of Israel. 

We are all engaged in this great work.  As the Prophet Joseph Smith said, "shall we not go on in so great a cause? Go forward and not backward. Courage, brethren; and on, on to the victory! Let your hearts rejoice, and be exceedingly glad. Let the earth break forth into singing. Let the dead speak forth anthems of eternal praise to the King Immanuel, who hath ordained, before the world was, that which would enable us to redeem them out of their prison; for the prisoners shall go free." (D & C 128:22 http://www.lds.org/scriptures/dc-testament/dc/128.22)

The Prisoners will be freed, all made possible by the power of the Atonement. 

Picture is Strength of Israel, by Brent Borup.

One last scripture, from the Prophet Joseph

"Let the mountains shout for joy, and all ye valleys cry aloud; and all ye seas and dry lands tell the wonders of your Eternal King! And ye rivers, and brooks, and rills, flow down with gladness. Let the woods and all the trees of the field praise the Lord; and ye solid rocks weep for joy! And let the sun, moon, and the morning stars sing together, and let all the sons of God shout for joy! And let the eternal creations declare his name forever and ever! And again I say, how glorious is the voice we hear from heaven, proclaiming in our ears, glory, and salvation, and honor, and immortality, and eternal life; kingdoms, principalities, and powers!" (D & C 128:23 http://www.lds.org/scriptures/dc-testament/dc/128.23 )

"And it came to pass that I, Nephi, beheld the pointers which were in the ball, that they did work according to the faith and diligence and heed which we did give unto them"  (1 Nephi 16:28 http://www.lds.org/scriptures/bofm/1-ne/16.28 ) May we all give faith, diligence, and heed to our leaders, to the scriptures, and allow to spirit to guide us.

Nephi was a prophet of God who lived in Jerusalem, and later came with his family to the American continent before the coming of Christ. Along with the Bible, God's words are in the Book of Mormon.

Sunday will Come


Just as the sadness of Christ's death did not endure, so our trials will not endure forever.  Because of the resurrection and atonement, all can live forever with our Father in Heaven and Savior, Jesus Christ, and not have to experience the pain and trials we sometimes do here.  If you are viewing this by email, click the title link to be taken to where you may view this.

Authority of the Savior returned again to the Earth...

"The power and authority of the higher, or Melchizedek Priesthood, is to hold the keys of all the spiritual blessings of the church—"

What a blessing it is to have the power and authority of the Savior on this earth, so that we, and all the peoples of the earth, and all who have or ever will live upon it,  may be blessed.  It stretches from before the beginning of time into  the eternities and beyond, and has the power to touch and change the hearts of the children of men, one by one and heart by heart, and endure with them forever.  

May we be grateful for the many blessings, too numerous to count, that have come to this earth since that time.

Christ's Church has returned to the earth...

"With great love and admiration for the many disciples of Jesus Christ who are not members of this Church, we humbly declare that angels have returned to the earth in our day. The Church of Jesus Christ as He established it anciently has been restored, with the power, ordinances, and blessings of heaven. The Book of Mormon is another testament of Jesus Christ."

Joseph Smith, The Prophet of the Restoration

From Elder David B Haight of the Quorum of the Twelve about the Prophet Joseph Smith. Hope you take the time to read the entire article. "I have been blessed, as the years have passed, with unusual experiences with people, places, and personal events of an intimate, spiritual nature, and, through the power of the Holy Ghost, I have received an ever-deepening witness and knowledge of this heaven-directed restoration of the Lord’s plan of salvation. The events related by Joseph Smith of the Restoration are true."

The Son of Man hath descended below them all...


If you are in the middle of trials, or even in good times, pour your hearts out to our Father in Heaven, in the name of Christ, and through the power of the Atonement, he can and will lift you.

The Savior is there to comfort and lift us. In the horrible trial Liberty Jail, the Lord comforted the prophet Joseph by saying

"know thou, my son, that all these things shall give thee experience, and shall be for thy good.

The Son of Man hath descended below them all. Art thou greater than he?"

The Greatest of all will never let us suffer more than we are able, but will lift us and comfort us. May we ever be grateful for that.

The Only Begotten of The Father...

“With all my heart and the fervency of my soul, I lift up my voice in testimony as a special witness and declare that God does live. Jesus is His Son, the Only Begotten of the Father in the flesh. He is our Redeemer; He is our Mediator with the Father. He it was who died on the cross to atone for our sins. He became the firstfruits of the Resurrection. Because He died, all shall live again... May the whole world know it and live by that knowledge.” President Thomas S Monson (http://www.lds.org/topics/jesus-christ?lang=eng )

Alive in Christ

May we all become as little children, alive in Christ, trusting him and taking joy in the smallest of God's creations.  "But little children are alive in Christ, even from the foundation of the world." (Moroni 8:12).  And in the new testament we read "Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven." (Matthew 18:3 ).  May we all remember that we are our Father in Heaven's children, and he can lift us, protect us, and help us to find true joy.

God So Loved the World...

"For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life."  (http://bit.ly/12NHwk2) Of this truth the Savior said to Peter "I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live” (http://bit.ly/16y1Yey)

The Savior loves us with a love we cannot comprehend.  He descended below all things so that we may return back to him and our Father in Heaven again with our families.

May we all take the time to pour our hearts out in gratitude to our Father in Heaven for the gift of his only begotten son, and take a moment afterwards to wait for the Lord's response through the spirit.  Then, may we love others as the Savior would have us do.

Perfect Love...we are still little children of a Loving Father in Heaven

"...no matter how old we get, we are still little children of a loving Father in Heaven.

When the people brought their little children to the Savior His disciples rebuked them, but Jesus replied, “Suffer little children, and forbid them not, to come unto me: for of such is the kingdom of heaven.” (Matthew 19:13-14).

The Savior must have loved being surrounded by those perfect little souls who loved Him so dearly. I can imagine Him smiling as He watched them play and laughing as they told Him stories, the kind of simple and innocent stories all little children tell. I know they felt His love and longed to stay by His side.

Message is from Liz Lemon Swindle.  May we all show Christlike love to the children in our lives, and remember that we are our Father in Heaven's children.

Hope in the Second Coming

The Savior, Jesus Christ, will come again to the earth in power and great glory.  From the Apostles-

"We testify that He will someday return to earth. “And the glory of the Lord shall be revealed, and all flesh shall see it together” (Isaiah 40:5). He will rule as King of Kings and reign as Lord of Lords, and every knee shall bend and every tongue shall speak in worship before Him. Each of us will stand to be judged of Him according to our works and the desires of our hearts." from The Living Christ: The Testimony of the Apostles - more at http://bit.ly/1bAqOhI
