General Conference, ‘Daughters in the Covenant,’ April 2014; “It is our free choice whether we make and keep those covenants. Only a few of His daughters have the opportunity in this life to even learn of those covenants. You are one of the favored few. You dear sisters, each of you is a daughter in the covenant.” – Henry B Erying
Zechariah 6:12-13; “And speak unto him, saying, Thus speaketh the LORD of hosts, saying, Behold the man whose name is The BRANCH; and he shall grow up out of his place, and he shall build the temple of the LORD: 13 Even he shall build the temple of the LORD; and he shall bear the glory, and shall sit and rule upon his throne; and he shall be a priest upon his throne: and the counsel of peace shall be between them both.”
Hebrews 8:1; “Now of the things which we have spoken this is the sum: We have such an high priest, who is set on the right hand of the throne of the Majesty in the heavens.”
The Lord has provided for us abundantly in life. From the comfort we have in knowing Jesus is our Redeemer to His unchanging word where we can go to for guidance; we are truly blessed! Today we’re looking at the subject of monotheism. The Bible contains numerous passages describing God that can keep anyone busy for quite awhile. What I found so endearing when I became a believer is learning that names actually carry a descriptive meaning and one of the major shocks for me when I left Mormonism was finding out there are no other gods. Man can’t become a god and there wasn’t a council of gods who created the earth as Joseph Smith taught (Teachings of the Prophet Joseph Smith, p 349).
Ensign, ‘Blessings of the Temple,’ October 2010; “As we touch the temple and love the temple, our lives will reflect our faith. As we go to the holy house, as we remember the covenants we make therein. We will be able to bear every trial and overcome each temptation.” – Thomas S. Monson
John 17:4; “I have glorified thee on the earth: I have finished the work which thou gavest me to do.”
