March 20 – Hosanna – Oh Save Us!  John 11:55-57, 12:1, 12-15 “And the Jews’ Passover was nigh at hand: and many went out of the country up to Jerusalem before the Passover, to purify themselves. 56 Then sought they for Jesus, and spake among themselves, as they stood in the temple, What think ye, that he will not come to the feast? 57 Now both the chief priests and the Pharisees had given a commandment, that, if any man knew where he were, he should shew it, that they might take him.”

12:1 “Then Jesus six days before the Passover came to Bethany, where Lazarus was which had been dead, whom he raised from the dead. 12 On the next day much people that were come to the feast, when they heard that Jesus was coming to Jerusalem, 13 Took branches of palm trees, and went forth to meet him, and cried, Hosanna: Blessed is the King of Israel that cometh in the name of the Lord. 14 And Jesus, when he had found a young ass, sat thereon; as it is written, 15 Fear not, daughter of Sion: behold, thy King cometh, sitting on an ass’s colt.”

Today we’re looking at an article in the upcoming July 2018 edition of the Church’s Ensign magazine. Hold on to your Bibles, because this time around it’ll be needed. Sigh…

Ensign, ‘You Can Be Temple Worthy,’ July 2018 “It is our great desire that members of the Church will live to be worthy of a temple recommend. Please don’t see the temple as some distant and perhaps unachievable goal. Working with their bishop, most members can achieve all righteous requirements in a relatively short period of time if they have a determination to qualify and fully repent of transgressions.

God doesn’t reside in buildings man has made. God dwells in the hearts of those who believe in Him!

Acts 17:24 “God that made the world and all things therein, seeing that he is Lord of heaven and earth, dwelleth not in temples made with hands”. (more…)

General Conference, ‘Prepare to Meet God,’ April 2018; “As we look at the primary purposes of the Church, they are all based on equality before the Lord and following the culture of the gospel of Jesus Christ. With respect to missionary work, the principal qualifications for baptism are humbling oneself before God and coming forth with a broken heart and contrite spirit. Education, wealth, race, or national origin are not even considered. …The Savior additionally explained that everyone is our neighbor. The Book of Mormon makes it clear …We must be united and equal before God.” – Quentin L. Cook

flowers-cartoon-8In this month’s Ensign the Visiting Teaching Message is titled Parenthood Is a Sacred Duty. Despite the title chosen for the message, the message offers very little guidance as to why they believe family is so important.

The article pulls a quote by Quentin L. Cook, from the May 2015 issue of the Ensign where he says: “If we faithfully have family prayer, scripture study, family home evening, priesthood blessings, and Sabbath day observance,” …….” our children will … be prepared for an eternal home in heaven, regardless of what befalls them in a difficult world.

GeneraMormon Decisions 10l Conference, April 2015, “The Lord Is My Light”; “If the grim realities you are facing at this time seem dark and heavy and almost unbearable, remember that in the soul-wrenching darkness of Gethsemane and the incomprehensible torture and pain of Calvary, the SaviorQLCook accomplished the Atonement, which resolves the most terrible burdens that can occur in this life. He did it for you, and He did it for me. He did it because He loves us and because He obeys and loves His Father. We will be rescued from death…

Our protections in this life and for eternity will be in individual and family righteousness, Church ordinances, and following the Savior. This is our refuge from the storm. For those who feel they are alone, you can stand resolutely in righteousness knowing that the Atonement will protect and bless you beyond your ability to fully understand.

Internet not Allowed

Mormon Decisions 10“Can Ye Feel So Now?”, General Conference October 2012; “The constant portrayal of violence and immorality in music, entertainment, art, and other media in our day-to-day culture is unprecedented. This was dramatically described by a highly respected Baptist theologian when he stated, “The spiritual immune system of an entire civilization has been wounded.

Many who are in a spiritual drought and lack commitment have not necessarily been involved in major sins or transgressions, but they have made unwise choices…Some have immersed themselves in Internet materials that magnify, exaggerate, and, in some cases, invent shortcomings of early Church leaders. Then they draw incorrect conclusions that can affect testimony. Any who have made these choices can repent and be spiritually renewed.” – Quentin L. Cook

Salvation & the Gospel:

Are You a Latter-day Saint?

New Era, December 2009, pg. 5; “A Saint loves the Savior and follows Him in holiness and devotion. Evidence of this kind of holiness and devotion is exemplified by consecration and sacrifice. Sacrifice is the crowning test of the gospel. It means consecrating time, talents, energy, and earthly possessions to further the work of God. In Doctrine and Covenants 97, verse 8, it concludes, ‘All . . . who . . . are willing to observe their covenants by sacrifice—yea, every sacrifice which I, the Lord, shall command—they are accepted of me.’ “– Quentin L. Cook
