‘Now unto the King eternal, immortal, invisible, the only wise God, be honour and glory forever and ever. Amen.’ 1 Timothy 1:17

 

The Gospel Through the Ages 20 “As has been pointed out, at the great council in heaven, “when the morning stars sang together and all the sons of God shouted for joy,” Jesus Christ was foreordained to be the Savior of the world. Thereupon the Eternal Father bestowed upon His Beloved Son His divine power (Priesthood), in order that Jesus might in a valid way perform the works of the Redeemer and Mediator of the everlasting covenant and in the fullest degree be the Christ, the Savior of humanity. God honored the Only Begotten Son by naming this power “the Holy Priesthood after the order of the Son of God”. — Milton R. Hunter, 1945 (more…)

Mormon Decisions 10Journal of Discourses 10:324-325; “We believe that Jesus was foreordained before the foundations of the world were built, and his mission was appointed him in eternity to be the Savior of the world, yet when he came in the flesh he was left free to choose or refuse to obey his Father.

salt lake mormon temple 2Excerpts of Wilford Woodruff’s Journal, pg 55; “July 27, 1851, Sermon on Sunday: Sunday I attended meeting. We had a good day. Brother Kimball addressed the meeting a part of the day. Among other remarks he said Jesus Christ was the first born of the Father and He was the candidate and elected to redeem the world. Lucifer sat up as a candidate to run against Jesus Christ, but he was overcome and thrust down to Hell with all that followed him. And we will have no more division henceforth and forever in Israel. We will have but one candidate for office but no opposition. All will be elected and proven. If a person is qualified to fill a greater station than he holds, he will have a chance.” – Wilford Woodruff

Joseph Smith’s Importance to Man

Mormon Decisions 10Journal of Discourses 7:290; “You will be thankful, every one of you, that Joseph Smith, junior, was ordained to this great calling before the worlds were…The Lord had his eye upon him, and upon his father, and upon his father’s father, and upon their progenitors clear back to Abraham…He has watched that family and that blood as it has circulated from its fountain to the birth of that man. He was foreordained in eternity to preside over this last dispensation, as much so as Pharaoh was fore-ordained to be a wicked man, or as was Jesus to be the Saviour of the world because he was the oldest son in the family.” – Brigham Young, Salt Lake City, October 9, 1859
