General Conference, ‘Hearts Knit Together’, April 2021 “The Lord expects us to teach that inclusion is a positive means toward unity and that exclusion leads to division.

As followers of Jesus Christ, we are dismayed when we hear of how children of God are mistreated based on their race. We have been heartbroken to hear of recent attacks on people who are Black, Asian, Latino, or of any other group. Prejudice, racial tension, or violence should never have any place in our neighborhoods, communities, or within the Church. Let each of us, no matter our age, strive to be our best.” — Gary E. Stevenson (more…)

Although we posted this last year, it seemed to be a great timely reminder to point out the significance of what our Lord did for us!

Yesterday we spoke about Names Over Doorways, but today we’re looking at an even more important sign over doorways. The blood of a lamb which signified the Lord’s protection over the household.

As an FYI, Passover this year began on Saturday, March 27, and continues through Sunday, April 4.

Why Mormons Pass Over God’s Passover Miracle. Exodus 12:21-27 “Then Moses called for all the elders of Israel, and said unto them, Draw out and take you a lamb according to your families, and kill the passover. 22 And ye shall take a bunch of hyssop, and dip it in the blood that is in the bason, and strike the lintel and the two side posts with the blood that is in the bason; and none of you shall go out at the door of his house until the morning. 23 For the LORD will pass through to smite the Egyptians; and when he seeth the blood upon the lintel, and on the two side posts, the LORD will pass over the door, and will not suffer the destroyer to come in unto your houses to smite you. 24 And ye shall observe this thing for an ordinance to thee and to thy sons for ever. 25 And it shall come to pass, when ye be come to the land which the LORD will give you, according as he hath promised, that ye shall keep this service. 26 And it shall come to pass, when your children shall say unto you, What mean ye by this service? 27 That ye shall say, It is the sacrifice of the LORD’s passover, who passed over the houses of the children of Israel in Egypt, when he smote the Egyptians, and delivered our houses. And the people bowed the head and worshipped.”

1 Corinthians 5;7 “Purge out therefore the old leaven, that ye may be a new lump, as ye are unleavened. For even Christ our passover is sacrificed for us.” (more…)

March 12 – Baptisms for the Dead Means Not Trusting God. Isaiah 8:19-20 “And when they shall say unto you, Seek unto them that have familiar spirits, and unto wizards that peep, and that mutter: should not a people seek unto their God? for the living to the dead? 20 To the law and to the testimony: if they speak not according to this word, it is because there is no light in them.”

For the Strength of the Youth, ‘The Great Cause of the Restoration’, January 2021 “…We should always remember the price Joseph and Hyrum Smith paid…to establish the Church so you and I could enjoy the many blessings and all of these revealed truths we have today. Their faithfulness should never be forgotten! … Before his death in 1844, Joseph wrote a spirited letter to the Saints. It was a call to action, which continues in the Church today: Brethren [and sisters], shall we not go on in so great a cause? …

“We should always remember the price Hyrum and Joseph Smith paid. … Their faithfulness should never be forgotten!” … Consider what offering you will present to the Lord in righteousness in the coming days. Be courageous…I know that the Savior is pleased when we present Him an offering from our hearts in righteousness, just as He was pleased with the faithful offering of those remarkable brothers, Joseph and Hyrum Smith…” — M. Russell Ballard (more…)

Journal of Discourses 2:344-346 “The plain, simple Scriptural doctrine is that God’s Spirit is there, which is God in all His power and majesty. All those seemingly mysterious passages which the learned divines have applied to the person of the Father being omnipresent, have reference to that All-wise Spirit of which we have spoken. … that a person who believes and follows this as taught in the Book of Covenants, and the Book of Mormon, will never be confounded. … What influence will this have over a man who believes it? It will put him more upon his guard…when we know that the Holy Spirit is everywhere present, being combined with all matter then we have a correct understanding. (more…)

An Eternal Quest Freedom of the Mind “While I believe all that God has revealed, I am not quite sure that I understand what he has revealed. The fact that he has promised further revelation is to me a challenge to keep an open mind and to be prepared to follow wherever my search for truth may lead. … Again I emphasize, there is no final goal.” — Hugh B. Brown (more…)

2014 Presentation of Jesus with Simeon

November 19 – LDS: Origin of Holy Spirit is Speculative, and Fruitless. Haggai 2:6-9 “For thus saith the LORD of hosts; Yet once, it is a little while, and I will shake the heavens, and the earth, and the sea, and the dry land; 7 And I will shake all nations, and the desire of all nations shall come: and I will fill this house with glory, saith the LORD of hosts. 8 The silver is mine, and the gold is mine, saith the LORD of hosts. 9 The glory of this latter house shall be greater than of the former, saith the LORD of hosts: and in this place will I give peace, saith the LORD of hosts.”

Luke 2:27-32 “And he came by the Spirit into the temple: and when the parents brought in the child Jesus, to do for him after the custom of the law, 28 Then took he him up in his arms, and blessed God, and said, 29 Lord, now lettest thou thy servant depart in peace, according to thy word: 30 For mine eyes have seen thy salvation, 31 Which thou hast prepared before the face of all people; 32 A light to lighten the Gentiles, and the glory of thy people Israel.”

A New Witness for the Articles of Faith, p. 290Sins are remitted not in the waters of baptism, as we say in speaking figuratively, but when we receive the Holy Ghost. It is the Holy Spirit of God that erases carnality and brings us into a state of righteousness. We become clean when we actually receive the fellowship and companionship of the Holy Ghost. It is then that sin and dross and evil are burned out of our souls as though by fire.” — Bruce R. McConkie [emp. added] (more…)
