Wonderful, Counsellor, the Mighty God...The Prince of Peace

Our Savior and Redeemer is over all, and has redeemed us forever. 

"And the Government shall be upon his shoulder, and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, the Mighty God, the Everlasting Father, the Prince of Peace."  Isaiah 9:6 https://www.lds.org/scriptures/ot/isa/9.6)

This glorious Savior is real, and touches the hearts of all.  Indeed, if we serve him and serve others, we experience, as the two men on emmaus road "Did not our hearts burn within us...?"  May we seek him out, so that we may be filled with the spirit.  For he suffered so that may happen.  

Christ accomplished the atonement, and bled from every pore, and suffered on the cross, and "partook and finished my preparations unto the children of men." He rose from the dead, appeared unto many, and ascended back to the Father, and has restored his gospel in the Latter-Days to prepare for his second coming.  

And he will come again.  As the Joseph Smith Translation of Revelation 1:7 says: "For behold, he cometh in the clouds with ten thousands of his saints in the kingdom, clothed with the glory of his Father. And every eye shall see him; and they who pierced him..." 

And his salvation will be forever, as Doctrine and Covenants 76:108 says, "Then shall he be crowned with the crown of his glory, to sit on the throne of his power to reign forever and ever."

And we will dwell with him and our families in the Celestial Kingdom as we live worthily, as is said in D & C 76: 94-95: "They who dwell in his presence are the church of the Firstborn; and they see as they are seen, and know as they are known, having received of his fulness and of his grace;

And he makes them equal in power, and in might, and in dominion."

May we ever live worthy to live in Glory with our Savior and Redeemer, our Heavenly Parents, and our Families, ancestors, and posterity forever.

What a glorious promise.
