Psalm 32:7 “Thou art my hiding place; thou shalt preserve me from trouble; thou shalt compass me about with songs of deliverance. Selah.”

General Conference, ‘Build a Fortress of Spirituality and Protection,’ April 2019 “We make and renew our covenants by partaking of the sacrament and by worshipping in the temple. …

In the temple we can “lay aside the things of this world” and feel the Lord’s presence…We can focus on our ancestors, our families, and eternal life in the presence of the Father. …

As we diligently strengthen our fortifications, we become like Jesus Christ, as His true disciples, with our very souls in His protection. Your testimony of Jesus Christ is your personal fortress, the security for your soul. … Our testimonies…our homes, our families, and our membership in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints will be our personal fortresses of protection…” — Ronald A. Rasband (more…)

 Conference Report, April 1943, p. 39 “These are trying days, in which Satan rages, at home and abroad, hard days, evil and ugly days. We stand helpless as it seems before them. We need help. We need strength. We need guidance. Perhaps if we would do our work in behalf of those of the unseen world who hunger and pray for the work we can do for them, the unseen world would in return give us help in this day of our urgent need. There are more in the other world than there are here. There is more power and strength there than we have upon this earth. We have but a trifle, and that trifle is taken from the immeasurable power of God.” — John A. Widtsoe

Conference Report, April 1959, p. 23 “I have no idea in my mind that every soul that has lived upon the face of the earth, who has died and gone to the spirit world, is going to repent and receive the gospel. There will be many that will not do that. Our scriptures point to that fact. They are not going to receive the gospel in the spirit world, when their souls are full of bitterness and hate towards the truth, but they have a right to have it taught to them.” – Joseph Fielding Smith [emp. mine] (more…)

Today we’re looking at a couple of the talks given at General Conference in April 2018.

Before we begin…first things first…

The numbers we’ve allotted to each talk is purely for our own references in the series, and isn’t meant to describe the order in which each talk was given at conference. We’ve noticed in past articles Mormons are getting hung up on peripheral things, instead of focusing on the subject matter at hand.

Galatians 1:6-8; “I marvel that ye are so soon removed from him that called you into the grace of Christ unto another gospel: 7 Which is not another; but there be some that trouble you, and would pervert the gospel of Christ. 8 But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed.” [emp. mine]

Yesterday we looked at divining rods; a hobby Joseph Smith picked up from his father.

Today we’re onto another topic within that same genre, only this time we’re looking at a recurring experience Smith had while he was a prophet. Visiting angels. More specifically, Moroni, the angel of light.
