January 22 – Everlasting burnings. What is it? Who goes to everlasting burnings and why? Isaiah 33:12, 14. “And the people shall be as the burnings of lime…the sinners in Zion are afraid; fearfulness hath surprised the hypocrites. Who among us shall dwell with the devouring fire? Who among us shall dwell with everlasting burnings?”

D&C 101:17-19; “Zion shall not be moved out of her place, notwithstanding her children are scattered. 18 They that remain, and are pure in heart, shall return, and come to their inheritances, they and their children, with songs of everlasting joy, to build up the waste places of Zion— 19 And all these things that the prophets might be fulfilled.” [emp. mine]
Matthew 16:18; “And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.”
When you went to church last week, did you remember to thank Him for each miracle you just witnessed?
Each time any of us sees another Christian, do we think of Jesus first, then give thanks for the miracle He performed? A church building alone stands as a testament to what He’s done, not to mention the people filling its pews!
Dear sweet Jesus told us in Matthew 16:18 the ‘gates of hell would not prevail’ against His church, yet it’s easy for us to take His words for granted (myself included). Not only do we live in a country that affords us the freedom to worship Him, we also have the freedom to either accept, or reject, what our Bibles tell us.
Doctrine and Covenants Student Manual, (2002), 139–140; “I calculate to be one of the instruments of setting up the kingdom of Daniel by the word of the Lord, and I intend to lay a foundation that will revolutionize the whole world. … It will not be by sword or gun that this kingdom will roll on: the power of truth is such that all nations will be under the necessity of obeying the Gospel.” (History of the Church, 6:364–65.)”
December 5 – Fulfillment of the Great Commission. Matthew 28:18-20; “And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth. 19 Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: 20 Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.”
Luke 2:11-14; “For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord. 12 And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger. 13 And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying, 14 Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.”
Deep within the covers of the Book of Mormon, a verse from the Church’s canon tells a lie about the birthplace of Jesus. Since its original publication in 1830, friend and foe alike have commiserated over the incorrect info, and the Church has provided one excuse after another trying to explain away the elephant in the room.
Today we’re looking at one of those excuses, and providing a map of Israel at the time Jesus lived there. First thing’s first though! The Bible tells us Jesus was born in Bethlehem.
Matthew 2:5-6; “And they said unto him, In Bethlehem of Judaea: for thus it is written by the prophet, 6 And thou Bethlehem, in the land of Juda, art not the least among the princes of Juda: for out of thee shall come a Governor, that shall rule my people Israel.”
