It’s been a while since I have posted anything, I want to first 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)
Isaiah 45 – speaks to the 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.
- 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.”
Those who seek for priesthood and power will have neither, but those who seek to do the will of the Lord will have priesthood and power to do that which He has asked of you. Do you understand what this is?
