Ensign, ‘Be Anxiously Engaged,’ October 2012; “…In your morning prayer each new day, ask Heavenly Father to guide you to recognize an opportunity to serve one of His precious children. Then go throughout the day with your heart full of faith and love, looking for someone to help. Stay focused, just like the honeybees focus on the flowers from which to gather nectar and pollen. If you do this, your spiritual sensitivities will be enlarged and you will discover opportunities to serve that you never before realized were possible.

I know that if you do this—at home, at school, at work, and at church—the Spirit will guide you, and you will be able to discern those in need of a particular service that only you may be able to give. You will be prompted by the Spirit and magnificently motivated to help pollinate the world with the pure love of Christ and His gospel.” – M. Russell Ballard

As my good friend, Ed Decker, and I were talking yesterday via e-mail, he told me about the dreams he keeps having lately, and asked me if he could use something on our site in an article about his experience.

In light of all that, we’re posting the thoughts he jotted down to share with readers of what God has placed on his heart lately. This is definitely something you don’t want to miss. Not only is it an eye-opener, but it’s heart wrenching as well.

Also, be sure to check out his site at SaintsAlive.com, where you’ll find this article and other news! And yes, he has another book at the publisher we’re excitedly anticipating! As a friendly reminder, Saints Alive is always grateful for everyone’s prayer, and financial support!

They are without hope in Christ.

“If”, part 2, Calvary Love by Amy Carmichael; ‘…if the cup of spiritual flattery tastes sweet to me, then I know nothing of Calvary love…’ Thou Givest, They Gather

 History of the Church 6:299-300; “We are now the most noble people on the face of the globe, and we have no occasion to fear tadpoles.

We are designated by the All-seeing Eye to do good, not to stoop to anything low. We are apt to suffer prejudice to get into our hearts on hearing reports. … The reason why I feel so good is because I have a big soul. There are men with small bodies who have got souls like Enoch. We have. We have gathered our big souls from the ends of the earth. The Gospel picks the big souls out of all creation, and we will get the big souls out of all the nations, and we shall have the largest city in the world.

We will gather all the big souls out of every nation. As soon as the Gospel catches hold of noble souls, it brings them all right up to Zion. There is a thing called guiding star. The Gospel is similar. We will have a people great enough to be saved.” – Joseph Smith

Leviticus 19:31; “Regard not them that have familiar spirits, neither seek after wizards, to be defiled by them: I am the LORD your God.”

Today our focus is on the spiritual discernment, or the lack thereof, in the LDS Church. Our first heads up about this came about when we discovered an LDS jewelry store selling replicas of several temple motifs that should cause great concern for any discerning Christian. We’re looking at a handful of those items to hopefully bring attention to the ungodly spiritual ramifications they have on the Mormon people.

We’re also asking our Christian readers to pray for those who might be thinking of purchasing these things, or if you know a Mormon, warn them of the dangers! Below are a few of the items we saw on their site.

Item #1

 Nauvoo Sunstone Christmas Ornament

Question:

How does this represent the Lord on His birthday?

Liahona 1 Nephi 16:28-29; “And it came to pass that I, Nephi, beheld the pointers which were in the ball, that they did work according to the faith and diligence and heed which we did give unto them. 29 And there was also written upon them a new writing, which was plain to be read, which did give us understanding concerning the ways of the Lord; and it was written and changed from time to time, according to the faith and diligence which we gave unto it. And thus we see that by small means the Lord can bring about great things.”

Philippians 1:9-10; “And this I pray, that your love may abound yet more and more in knowledge and in all judgment; 10 That ye may approve things that are excellent; that ye may be sincere and without offence till the day of Christ.”

pokemongoGone are the days of trading baseball cards and marbles, kids in the ‘90’s were opting for a ‘sophisticated’ upgrade known as Pokémon cards.

‘This topic is a controversial one’, is the way most reports refer to society’s latest fad; ‘Pokémon Go’. Three months after its initial release by Nintendo, the virtual game is still going at it, even if it isn’t talked about all the time as it once was.

Today we’re looking at the spiritual dangers of this latest craze in an effort to give a heads up to the unknowing, and to remind others of what the Bible says about discernment.

Luke 4:17-21; “And there was delivered unto him the book of the prophet Esaias. And when he had opened the book, he found the place where it was written, 18 The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised, 19 To preach the acceptable year of the Lord. 20 And he closed the book, and he gave it again to the minister, and sat down. And the eyes of all them that were in the synagogue were fastened on him. 21 And he began to say unto them, This day is this scripture fulfilled in your ears.”

The Occult in Mormonism and the Life of Joseph SmithLiahona, ‘Commonly Asked Questions,’ October 2010; “Why is symbolism used in the temple?

During His earthly ministry, the Savior often taught in parables to represent eternal truths symbolically. He has directed that we be taught in a similar way in the temple. There is symbolism in the temple ordinances and covenants, their presentation, the physical setting, and the clothing worn. If you ponder the meaning of these symbols with the guidance of the Holy Ghost, they can help you recognize truth, learn about Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ, and grow spiritually.”
