Stewardship is an interesting concept and an important responsibility. It is one of the first commandments and revelations that were given to mankind on earth. God said in that day, to Adam and Eve while they were yet in the garden, to “[b]e fruitful and multiply and fill the earth and subdue it and have dominion over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the heavens and over every living thing that moves on the earth.” (Gen. 1:28)
Oneness does not mean singleness, but rather it implies two or more. The Lord said that “I and my Father are one” (John 10:30). Hence at least two, plural and not singleness of person’s or in this case a single God, but Gods plural who share a oneness, one purpose.
There is only but one family. This thought has played upon my mind again and again.
We believe that family is essential and important to God but do we really know it? The family is so very sacred that He has ordained both men and women in marriage to share in this together with Him, the creation of the family. We yet grasp the full view of what this really means to be a family let alone His family or the sacrifice involved. It started with Adam and then it was made possible because of Eve (Gen. 1:28). We have been co-opted by God in the council of Gods into this His great plan (Abr. 3:22-28). This brings great blessings and also great responsibilities.
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)
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.
