Nephi is filled with the Power of God


When Nephi's brothers tried to kill Nephi for trying to build a ship, he said to them "In the name of the Almighty God, I command you that ye touch me not, for I am filled with the power of God, even unto the consuming of my flesh; and whoso shall lay his hands upon me shall wither even as a dried reed; and he shall be as naught before the power of God, for God shall smite him...(and later)

And it came to pass that the Lord said unto me: Stretch forth thine hand again unto thy brethren, and they shall not wither before thee, but I will shock them, saith the Lord, and this will I do, that they may know that I am the Lord their God.

And it came to pass that I stretched forth my hand unto my brethren, and they did not wither before me; but the Lord did shake them, even according to the word which he had spoken.

And now, they said: We know of a surety that the Lord is with thee, for we know that it is the power of the Lord that has shaken us. And they fell down before me, and were about to worship me, but I would not suffer them, saying: I am thy brother, yea, even thy younger brother; wherefore, worship the Lord thy God, and honor thy father and thy mother, that thy days may be long in the land which the Lord thy God shall give thee." (1 Nephi 17:48,53-55 https://www.lds.org/scriptures/bofm/1-ne/17.48,53-55 )

Jesus appears in the Americas

"And behold, the third time they did understand the voice which they heard; and it said unto them: Behold my Beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased, in whom I have glorified my name—hear ye him. And it came to pass, as they understood they cast their eyes up again towards heaven; and behold, they saw a Man descending out of heaven; and he was clothed in a white robe; and he came down and stood in the midst of them" (3 Nephi 11:6-8 https://www.lds.org/scriptures/bofm/3-ne/11.6-8?lang=eng#5 )

These passages bring such peace, as we read the Savior's words as he taught his New Testament Gospel to the Saints in the Americas, healed their sick, and blessed them and their children. May we all be grateful for the gift of the Book of Mormon in our own lives and study the words of Christ in its pages, along with the Bible.

An Obscure Boy

"Joseph described himself as “an obscure boy…who was doomed to the necessity of obtaining a scanty maintenance by his daily labor.” His mother describes him as “being a remarkably quiet, well-disposed child,….given to meditation and deep study.”

Young Joseph was inquisitive and hard working, but above all he was honest of heart. Of those years he says, “Though I was hated and persecuted for saying that I had seen a vision, yet it was true….I knew it, and I knew God knew it, and I could not deny it, neither dared I do it.”

Picture and message is by Joseph Brickey, the artist of this painting

Joseph Smith did see God the Father and his son, Jesus Christ. In his own words,

"I saw a pillar of light exactly over my head, above the brightness of the sun, which descended gradually until it fell upon me.

It no sooner appeared than I found myself delivered from the enemy which held me bound. 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!"

President Eyring Testifies of seeing the Savior, Jesus Christ

Read President Eyring testify he has seen the Savior, Jesus Christ. "I am a witness of the Resurrection of the Lord as surely as if I had been there in the evening with the two disciples in the house on Emmaus road. I know that He lives as surely as did Joseph Smith when he saw the Father and the Son in the light of a brilliant morning in a grove of trees in Palmyra.

This is the true Church of Jesus Christ. Only in the priesthood keys held by President Thomas S. Monson is the power for us to be sealed in families to live forever with our Heavenly Father and the Lord Jesus Christ. We will on the Day of Judgment stand before the Savior, face to face. It will be a time of joy for those who have drawn close to Him in His service in this life. It will be a joy to hear the words: “Well done, thou good and faithful servant.”19 I so testify as a witness of the risen Savior and our Redeemer in the name of Jesus Christ, amen."

The Great I Am, 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.

Peace is Coming - On Memorial Day

From the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier “They buried him among the kings because he had done good toward God and toward His house.” “In Christ shall all be made alive.” (whole talk here https://www.lds.org/general-conference/1982/10/run-boy-run)

May we all take the time to honor those who have served in the service of their countries, and have ever worshipped God. Only through God will peace truly come.

For many of us live under the freedom they have paid for with their lives.

Elder Packer Testifies he has seen the Savior, Jesus Christ

Read Elder Packer testify that he has seen the Savior, Jesus Christ. "After all the years that I have lived and taught and served, after the millions of miles I have traveled around the world, with all that I have experienced, there is one great truth that I would share. That is my witness of the Savior Jesus Christ.

Joseph Smith and Sidney Rigdon recorded the following after a sacred experience:

“And now, after the many testimonies which have been given of him, this is the testimony, last of all, which we give of him: That he lives!

“For we saw him” (D&C 76:22–23).

Their words are my words.

I believe and I am sure that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that He lives. He is the Only Begotten of the Father, and “by him, and through him, and of him, the worlds are and were created, and the inhabitants thereof are begotten sons and daughters unto God” (D&C 76:24).

I bear my witness that the Savior lives. I know the Lord. I am His witness. I know of His great sacrifice and eternal love for all of Heavenly Father’s children. I bear my special witness in all humility but with absolute certainty, in the name of Jesus Christ, amen." - Boyd K Packer, Apostle of the Lord

A Conversion Story: How Great Shall Be Your Joy

How great will be your joy if you bring just one soul to the Father. A conversion story: "the Lord's words, the Lord's power and the Lord's promises"

The work is going forward. Here is a story from my niece who is on a mission in California, and her story of the conversion of a man she was teaching (she is a new missionary). 

In her words; "We also have another baptism coming up this weekend. He's an older gentleman and met the missionaries at the Oakland temple visitors center..., and then started learning everything down here. The other sisters had only taught a lesson or two, but he was very hesitant to be baptized. I think it was my third lesson with him that we finally committed him. Okay fine, I did it. First baptismal commitment of the mish. It was actually one of the most powereful ones I've felt since being out here. We were in the middle of a lesson when my scriptures blew open to a passage about baptism I had marked. I felt impressed to have him read it, so I did. Sis Poz had no idea what I was doing, here is this little greenie ruining a perfectly good lesson, but afterwards I was able to promise him specific things that I never could have thought of on my own. My words were not my own. They were the Lord's words, the Lord's power and the Lord's promises. It was so neat. Everyone was tearing up. And he said he'd be baptized! So yeah." Sister Katie Monson

As the prophet Joseph said “The Standard of Truth has been erected; no unhallowed hand can stop the work from progressing; persecutions may rage, mobs may combine, armies may assemble, calumny may defame, but the truth of God will go forth boldly, nobly, and independent, till it has penetrated every continent, visited every clime, swept every country, and sounded in every ear, till the purposes of God shall be accomplished, and the Great Jehovah shall say the work is done” (History of the Church, 4:540).

Holy One of Israel

Says Isaiah about our day, and the Book of Mormon testifying of the Holy One of Israel "And in that day shall the deaf hear the words of the book, and the eyes of the blind shall see out of obscurity, and out of darkness.

The meek also shall increase their joy in the Lord, and the poor among men shall rejoice in the Holy One of Israel." (Isaiah 29:18-19 https://www.lds.org/scriptures/ot/isa/29.18-19).

May we all come to know the Savior by reading his words in the Book of Mormon, and allowing his spirit to touch our lives as we do.

"Inviting him in..."

Do we invite the Savior into our homes, into our thoughts, and into our lives? Do we turn off the distractions and invite the spirit in? He yearns for us to do so, and pleads for us to. "His invitation is one of the grandest outpourings of spiritual emotion known to man: "Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. 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." (Jesus the Christ, Quoting Matthew 11:28-30 https://www.lds.org/scriptures/nt/matt/11.28-30 ).

May we all invite the Savior into our lives through our thoughts, prayers, and most of all, actions.

Loving Savior

The purpose of this life is to come to know the Savior that we may be filled with his love. "And to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fulness of God." (Ephesians 3:19http://bit.ly/1bCcMMI ) 
To have that charity is to gain the fulness of God. "charity is the pure love of Christ, and it endureth forever; and whoso is found possessed of it at the last day, it shall be well with him." (Moroni 7:47http://bit.ly/15nkzXA )

"I have come to you in my house"

From a man who was in the Presence of the Savior in the Temple, "I was unable to see him, but I knew he was coming towards me in the celestial room, and I heard him in my mind declare that he had come to me in his house, and then I felt of his presence and his love for me. I have never felt love like that before, and I knew that I was in the presence of the Savior of the World." The Blessings of the Temple are available to all the pure in heart, as the Doctrine and Covenants says "my glory shall rest upon it; Yea, and my presence shall be there, for I will come into it, and all the pure in heart that shall come into it shall see God" (D & C 97:15-16http://bit.ly/14GTNd6 )

The temple is the house of the Lord. May we all go there often to feel of the spirit, and to feel of the presence of the Lord as we are able to do the work and feel the gratitude of those who have gone before us.

Light of the World - The Savior, Jesus Christ

In a world seemingly full of turmoil, the Love of the Savior stretches from before the foundations of the Earth into the eternities and beyond. It never ends. The power of his love can change our hearts, and prepare us to live in the presence of God. Our salvation is his very reason for existence. He is personal enough to know the pains in the quiet chambers of our hearts, and can help transform those into lives filled with Love. He can work miracles in all of our lives, and truly does, if we but have faith and come unto him. "I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me" "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" (John 14:6https://www.lds.org/scriptures/nt/john/14.6 ;John 3:16https://www.lds.org/scriptures/nt/john/3.16 )

Saviors on Mt Zion

President Hinckley has said that the work we do for the dead in the Temple is the closest we can come to the Sacrifice the Savior made for us, because we are doing things for others that they cannot do for themselves. We become Saviors on Mount Zion.

The Temple is the House of The Lord, where we can go to feel of his presence. "And inasmuch as my people build a house unto me in the name of the Lord...my glory shall rest upon it; Yea, and my presence shall be there, for I will come into it, and all the pure in heart that shall come into it shall see God" (D & C 97:15-16http://bit.ly/14GTNd6 )

#ItWasMom

“Mothers are endowed with a love that is unlike any other love on the face of the earth.” Marjorie Pay Hinckley. Mothers, you have cradled in your arms the future of your children’s hope, and have been the primary force in nurturing that. Remember what is special about your Mom this Mothers Day. See more at http://motherhood.mormon.org/ #ItWasMom

For those of you who aren't mothers but wish you could be, you make such sacred, wonderful contributions to the work of the Lord. Know that the Lord has promised that if you live righteously in this life, no blessing will be withheld from you in the next life. Every blessing, including having children, will be yours in the next life if you are righteous in this life. Great are the promises of the Lord, including the promise to cradle your own little ones.

Friends - Little Children


The message and scripture comes from the artist of this picture, Liz Lemon Swindle, who continues to paint pictures of the Savior even though she has rheumatoid arthritis, and every brush stroke is painful.

"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.

This picture reminds me that no matter how old we get, we are still little children of a loving Father in Heaven."

May we be grateful for the examples of following the Lord given to us in the Book of Mormon. "behold, I took the compass, and it did work whither I desired it. And it came to pass that I prayed unto the Lord...And it came to pass that I, Nephi, did guide the ship, that we sailed again towards the promised land. And it came to pass that after we had sailed for the space of many days we did arrive at the promised land; and we went forth upon the land, and did pitch our tents; and we did call it the promised land." (1 Nephi 18:21-23 http://www.lds.org/scriptures/bofm/1-ne/18.21-23?lang=eng#20 )

May we all rely on the Lord to guide us to our destination, both on earth, and back to our heavenly home.

"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.

"The Lord is my Shepherd..."


"The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.

He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters.

He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name’s sake.

Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of ddeath, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.

Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.

Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever." (Psalms 23 http://www.lds.org/scriptures/ot/ps/23 ).
