It’s been a while since I have posted anything, I want first to thank those who responded by e-mail to share why they chose to not partake of the covenant or why they had. I had intended to share publicly with permission their many stories. However, after inquiring about it – it was for me – to see and hear or at least read what others experiences are. I learned that there are some who are actually learning to lean upon the Lord and are seeking Him. Some of which were directed by the Lord to partake of the covenant and some who were directed to not partake. In both circumstances, these obeyed the Lord, and both are right.
“…I, Nephi, beheld the power of the Lamb of God, that it descended upon the saints of the church of the Lamb, and upon the covenant people of the Lord, who were scattered upon all the face of the earth; and they were armed with righteousness and with the power of God in great glory.” (1 Nephi 14:14)
Know ye therefore that they which are of faith, the same are the children of Abraham. And the scripture, foreseeing that God would justify the heathen through faith, preached before the gospel unto Abraham, saying, In thee shall all nations be blessed. So then they which be of faith are blessed with faithful Abraham. (KJV Gal 3:7-9)
On Friday, June 2nd, 2017 something took place that the world did not notice and many are caught completely unaware of what had happened. Something was organized by Heaven here on earth that day, between those on earth and those in heaven. It was simple, no thrills, the passing of knowledge took place, and declarations were made concerning several things towards this end and the expounding of scriptures. It was personable and familiar.
There has been much debate of late regarding servants, priesthood, temples and the coming forth of a restored set of scriptures. There have even been those pitting the servants of God against the other and comparing them saying, so and so is a greater prophet than the other. These are the musings of those who do not know God, who turn the word of God for naught and who themselves do not keep the commandments.
Isaiah 45 – speaks to my post I shared from before, titled: “An unlikely servant“, it is the Lord’s hand that guides the servant, He holds him up, and strengthens him. The point of this is to show you the great things God will do, is doing for Jacob, and Israel, for His house, for His children once again.
A sign has been given, and another is being revealed, the words of the prophets shall all be fulfilled, eternal are the words that have been given, spoken faithfully by His trusted servants who received them from Heaven, that you may know that He is God, that all His words shall be fulfilled.
- Will you give away ALL your sins to know God?
- Will you give your every possible moment to Him in thought, contemplation, searching your heart and soul in deep, ponderous thoughts, and feeling after Him always?
- Will you sacrifice ALL things to know Him?
- Will you obey His voice at all times, in all places and before all hazards?
- Do you believe the scriptures when they say Christ is the way?
On June 4, 2016, I went to the Lord in prayer and received the following in reply to my inquiry.
“Those who seek for priesthood and power will have neither, but those who seek to do my will, the will of the Lord, shall have both priesthood and power to do that which I have asked of you.”
The point of my blog and sharing my journey is to give my witness of the Father and His Son Jesus Christ and of the truthfulness of the His gospel and His doctrine. My desire is to help others come unto Him, to seek out the covenant seed of Abraham, the remnant of Joseph of who I am, in whom these things rightfully belong, and to whom are my ancestors, who are the blood of my blood, that we may gather together wherever we are at in His name, as many as will come even the Gentile that they may be His seed too, that we may gather unto the Lord, that we all may be a covenant people together.
