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?
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.
I recently was interviewed by Taylor Johnatakis about my experiences and witness of Christ, the interview resulted initially from my blog post titled: “Living according to your Faith,” where I shared my testimony of Christ, and also a talk (that you can listen to) that I recently gave to a congregation of the members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. You can listen to the two part interview by visiting his website from the link below.
This is a humbling story of a lady who was a slave, her story is worth sharing with others, her testimony of Christ and her experience ought to be remembered. [with minor edits]
