Our Worthiness Brings Us Strength

Coming to Ourselves: The Sacrament, the Temple, and Sacrifice in Service”, General Conference, Apr. 2012; “Worthiness to hold a temple recommend gives us the strength to keep our temple covenants. How do we personally gain that strength? We strive to obtain a testimony of Heavenly Father, Jesus Christ, the Holy Ghost, the reality of the Atonement, and the truthfulness of the Prophet Joseph Smith and the Restoration. We sustain our leaders, treat our families with kindness, stand as a witness of the Lord’s true Church, attend our Church meetings, honor our covenants, fulfill parental obligations, and live a virtuous life. You may say that sounds like just being a faithful Latter-day Saint! You are right. The standard for temple recommend holders is not too high for us to achieve. It is simply to faithfully live the gospel and follow the prophets.”—Elder Robert D. Hales

Brigham can Read Thoughts of the Heart & Enemies to Sink in Power

Journal of Discourses 10:40; “I say to the enemies of truth that I can tell them the words that are spoken in their private counsels. The very thoughts of their hearts are made known to me. They lay their plans to accomplish such and such a work in so long a time, and then plan a movement to destroy the “Mormons.”…Every time they make a movement against this kingdom they will sink still lower in the scale of national power, while the kingdom of God will rise…”

Comoros

The Comoros is a sovereign, archipelago island nation in the Indian Ocean located near the eastern coast of Africa.

As you can see on the map provided it consists of a town called Moroni which serves as the capital of the island nation.

Now what are the odds this is a coincidence?

From what historical records have shown throughout the writings of the Church, while Smith may have only had a third grade education and was horrible at spelling, he did have access to books.

Cumorah, Comoros, Moroni, Moroni…hmmm…I’m not buying into any story that defends Smith on this one.

Mormons to be Thought of as Kings

Journal of Discourses 4:40-41; “In the days of Joseph it was considered a great privilege to be permitted to speak to a member of Congress, but twenty-six years will not pass away before the Elders of this Church will be as much thought of as the kings on their thrones.” – Brigham Young, Salt Lake City, Aug 31, 1856

Foundation of the Book of Mormon Series

Atonement in the Book of Mormon

Isaiah 59:1-2; “Behold, the LORD’s hand is not shortened, that it cannot save; neither his ear heavy, that it cannot hear: 2 But your iniquities have separated between you and your God, and your sins have hid his face from you, that he will not hear.”

Think about this for a moment.

Where would you be today if Jesus hadn’t saved you?

Would you be just like you are right now? (We hope not!) Would you be divorced, married, estranged from loved ones?

How about your personal disposition? How much worse off would you be? Are people able to see a marked difference in you since that time?
