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.

Isaiah 45:22 “Look unto me, and be ye saved, all the ends of the earth: for I am God, and there is none else.”

One of my all time favorite Christmas songs is ‘O, Holy Night’.  The words, ‘fall on  your knees’, reminds us of what it says in Matthew 2:11 when the wise men fell down to worship the newborn King of Israel. The song’s four simple words commands attention of all who hear the words.

The Saints Herald, pp. 310-311; “For, when acting as his scribe, your father would dictate hour after hour; and when after meals, or after interruptions, he would at once begin where he had left without either seeing the manuscript, or any portion of it read to him. This was a usual thing· for him to do. It would have been improbable that a learned man could do this; and for one so ignorant and unlearned as he was, it was simply impossible…  …a common expression among all those who were intimate with the scenes in the coming- forth of the book, to use the word “key,” “stone,” “interpreters,” all meaning the same namely, the Urim and Thummim. …

The chief witnesses all agree… The Book of Mormon is the most ancient history of America, its people and its antiquities, that is now extant.

It is also the most correct and reliable… … and was translated from the language found on the plates into English by means of the Urim and Thummim, which was received with the record.”

 My Patriarchal Blessing

The following is what a patriarchal blessing means to every member of the Mormon Church.

“Every worthy, baptized member is entitled to and should receive a patriarchal blessing, which provides inspired direction from the Lord. Patriarchal blessings include a declaration of a person’s lineage in the house of Israel and contain personal counsel from the Lord. As a person studies his or her patriarchal blessing and follows the counsel it contains, it will provide guidance, comfort, and protection.” (lds.org)
