050 – Faith—the Choice is Yours:

What did the Bible say about faith, the choice is yours?:



Choose Faith over doubt, choose Faith over fear, choose Faith over the unknown and the unseen, and choose Faith over pessimism.

We live in one of the greatest dispensations of all times—a time former prophets looked forward to, prophesied of, and, I believe, yearned for.

However, with all the heavenly blessings bestowed upon us, Satan, ever so real, is ever so active, and conflicting messages are continually bombarding all of us.

The prophets tell us that the scriptures would be known for good and evil throughout the world, and never has the fulfillment of a prophecy been more evident.

The prophets gave their lives for a testimony, and the attacks continue today against the Lord’s Church and even the Savior Himself.

The reality of the Savior, His atoning sacrifice, and its universal application for all of us is challenged and often dismissed as a myth or the baseless hope of a weak and uneducated mind.

Furthermore, the reality of the scriptures in these latter days continues to be challenged.

The continual bombardment of such messages may cause confusion, doubt, and pessimism, each attacking the fundamental truths we believe in, our Faith in God, the Lord, and our hope in the future.

This might be the reality of our world today, but we can still choose how we react to it.

When our sacred doctrine and beliefs are challenged, this is our opportunity to become acquainted with God in a most private and intimate manner to learn, study, and share the scriptures.

This is our opportunity to choose.

Because of the conflicts and challenges we face in today’s world, I wish to suggest a single choice—a choice of peace and protection and a choice that is appropriate for all.

That choice is Faith.

And now abideth Faith, Hope, Charity, these three; but the greatest of these is Charity - 1 Corinthians 13:13

Be aware that Faith is not a free gift given without thought, desire, or effort.

It does not come as the dew falls from heaven.

Now Faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen - Hebrews 11:1

The Savior said, “Come unto me” (Matthew 11:28) and “Knock, and it shall be [given] you” (Matthew 7:7).

These are action verbs—come, knock.

The holy scriptures, which are able to make thee wise unto salvation through Faith which is in Christ Jesus - 2 Timothy 3:15

All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness - 2 Timothy 3:16


They are choices.

So I say, choose Faith.

Choose Faith over doubt, choose Faith over fear, choose Faith over the unknown and the unseen, and choose Faith over pessimism.

The scriptures tells us of Faith, is a series of choices to ensure the development and the preservation of our Faith.

The Lord gave us a directive to choose.

The Lord message to us, were words of action initiated by choosing.

Jesus Christ used the words awake, arouse, experiment, exercise, desire, work, and plant in the scriptures.

Then scriptures explained that if we make these choices and do not cast the seed Faith out by unbelief, then it will begin to swell within [our] breasts.

Yes, Faith is a choice, and it must be sought after and developed.

Thus, we are responsible for our own Faith.

We are also responsible for our lack of Faith.

The choice is yours.

There is much that I do not know.

I do not know the details of the organization of matter into the beautiful world we live in.

I do not understand the intricacies of the Atonement, how the Savior’s sacrifice can cleanse all repentant people, or how the Savior could suffer the pain of all men.

I do not know where the city of Enoch was, as referred to in the scriptures.

I do not know why my beliefs sometimes conflict with assumed scientific or secular knowledge.

Perhaps these are matters our Father in Heaven described as the mysteries of heaven that will be revealed at a later date.

But while I don’t know everything, I know the important.

I know the plain and simple gospel truths that lead to salvation and exaltation.

I know that the Savior did suffer the pain of all men and that all repentant people can be cleansed from sin.

And what I don’t know or don’t completely understand, with the powerful aid of my Faith, I bridge the gap and move on, partaking of the promises and blessings of the gospel.

And then, as the scripture’s teaches, our Faith brings us to a perfect knowledge.

By moving forward into the unknown, armed only with hope and desire, we show evidence of our Faith and our devotion to the Lord.

And so, following the scriptures formula, let us choose.

Let us choose Faith.

If confusion and hopelessness weigh on your mind, choose to awake and arouse your faculties.

Humbly approaching the Lord with a broken heart and contrite spirit is the pathway to truth and the Lord’s way of light, knowledge, and peace.

If your testimony is immature, untested, and insecure, choose to exercise [even] a particle of Faith; choose to experiment upon [His] words.

The Savior explained, If any man will do his will, he shall know of the doctrine, whether it be of God, or whether I speak of myself. - John 7:17

When logic, reason, or personal intellect come into conflict with sacred teachings and doctrine, or conflicting messages assault your beliefs as the fiery darts described by the Apostle Paul (see Ephesians 6:16), choose to not cast the seed out of your heart by unbelief.

Remember, we receive not a witness until after the trial of our Faith.

If your Faith is proven and mature, choose to nurture it with great care.

As strong as our Faith is, with all the mixed messages attacking it, it can also become very fragile.

It needs constant nourishment through continued scripture study, prayer, and the application of His word.

When the disciples asked Jesus why they could not cast a devil out as they had just witnessed the Savior do, Jesus answered, If ye have Faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove (Matthew 17:20).

I have never witnessed the removal of an actual mountain.

But because of Faith I have seen a mountain of doubt and despair removed and replaced with hope and optimism.

Because of Faith I have personally witnessed a mountain of sin replaced with repentance and forgiveness.

And because of Faith I have personally witnessed a mountain of pain replaced with peace, hope, and gratitude.

Yes, I have seen mountains removed.

Because of my Faith I have activated the power of the Lord that I hold in my heart and mind, have been a partaker of the sweetness of the gospel and have embraced the saving ordinances.

Because of my Faith I work through the struggles and difficulties in life with peace and assurance.

Because of my Faith I have been able to turn questions and even doubts into assurances and understanding.

Because of my Faith I approach the unknown, unseen, and unexplained with unquestioning assurance.

And because of my Faith—even in the seemingly worst of times—I recognize with peace and gratitude that in reality it is the best of times.

And when we choose Faith and then nurture that Faith to a perfect knowledge of the things of the Lord, then we use the words I testify or I know.

I have personally planted the seed of Faith in my own heart, and throughout my life I have attempted to nurture that seed of Faith to a perfect knowledge.

And today, as I stand for the gospel of Jesus Christ, I testify that Jesus is the Christ, the Redeemer of the world.

I further testify that the scriptures are the word of the Lord.

The scriptures are the living instrument of the Lord to bring back to the earth the complete and true gospel of Jesus Christ; for the world wants to take that away from us.

Likewise, the choice of Faith is yours, it is mine.

Let us choose Faith.





 
 
 



How long is Eternity?

This life is very short compared to Eternity, this is a test for us here.

Whether we live a few moments in the mother’s womb or 150 years old, compared to the Eternities, this life is nothing, we are here to choose the right and marry and raise a family of children unto God.

Families are forever with God.



The Apostle Paul talks about the 3 Kingdoms or Glories.

1 Corinthians 15:40 There are also celestial bodies, and bodies terrestrial : but the glory of the celestial is one, and the glory of the terrestrial is another.

1 Corinthians 15:41 There is one glory of the sun , and another glory of the moon , and another glory of the stars : for one star differeth from another star in glory.


Three Kingdoms of Glory:

There are three kingdoms of glory: the celestial kingdom, the terrestrial kingdom, and the telestial kingdom. The glory we inherit will depend on the depth of our conversion, expressed by our obedience to the Lord's commandments. It will depend on the manner in which we have "received the testimony of Jesus".

Celestial Kingdom – Like the - Sun :


The celestial kingdom is the highest of the three kingdoms of glory.

Those in this kingdom will dwell forever in the presence of God the Father and His Son Jesus Christ.

This should be our goal: to inherit celestial glory and to help others receive that great blessing as well.

Such a goal is not achieved in one attempt; it is the result of a lifetime of righteousness and constancy of purpose.

The celestial kingdom is the place prepared for those who have "received the testimony of Jesus" and been "made perfect through Jesus the mediator of the new covenant, who wrought out this perfect atonement through the shedding of his own blood".

To inherit this gift, we must receive the ordinances of salvation, keep the commandments, and repent of our sins.

"All who have died without a knowledge of this gospel, who would have received it if they had been permitted to tarry, shall be heirs of the celestial kingdom of God; "Also all that shall die henceforth without a knowledge of it, who would have received it with all their hearts, shall be heirs of that kingdom;

"For I, the Lord, will judge all men according to their works, according to the desire of their hearts".

"I also beheld that all children who die before they arrive at the years of accountability are saved in the celestial kingdom of heaven".

There are three degrees within the celestial kingdom.

To be exalted in the highest degree and continue eternally in family relationships, we must enter into "the new and everlasting covenant of marriage" and be true to that covenant.

In other words, temple marriage is a requirement for obtaining the highest degree of celestial glory.

All who are worthy to enter into the new and everlasting covenant of marriage will have that opportunity, whether in this life or the next.

Love Heavenly Father, Love the Lord Jesus Christ, and Love the Holy Ghost, Be Beloved, Be Holy, Bowels of Mercies, Do All Your Duties, Forbearing One Another, Forgiving, Helping the Poor, Humbleness of Mind, Keep The Commandments, Kindness, Longsuffering, Meekness, Repent and Forsake

Terrestrial Kingdom – Like the - Moon :


Those who inherit terrestrial glory will "receive of the presence of the Son, but not of the fulness of the Father.

Wherefore, they are bodies terrestrial, and not bodies celestial, and differ in glory as the moon differs from the sun".

Generally speaking, individuals in the terrestrial kingdom will be honorable people "who were blinded by the craftiness of men".

This group will include members of the Church who were "not valiant in the testimony of Jesus".

It will also include those who rejected the opportunity to receive the gospel in mortality but who later received it in the postmortal spirit world.

Love Heavenly Father, Love the Lord Jesus Christ, and Love the Holy Ghost, Be Beloved, Be Holy, Bowels of Mercies, Do All Your Duties, Forbearing One Another, Forgiving, Helping the Poor, Humbleness of Mind, Keep The Commandments, Kindness, Longsuffering, Meekness, Repent and Forsake

Telestial Kingdom – Like the - Stars :


As one star differ from another star in glory.

Telestial glory will be reserved for individuals who "received not the gospel of Christ, neither the testimony of Jesus".

These individuals will receive their glory after being redeemed from spirit prison, which is sometimes called hell.

Anger, Blasphemy, Concupiscence, Covetousness, Discord, Disobedience, Doing Contrary to the Laws of God, Envy, Evil, False Witness, Filthy Communication, Fornication, Gluttony, Graven Image, Greed, Hath, Did Not Honour Thy Father and Mother, Idolatry, Inordinate Affection, Keep the Sabbath Day, Laziness, Lust, Lying, Malice, Mischief, Neglecting, No Other Gods, Piety, Pride, Shalt Not Bear False Witness Against Thy Neighbour, Shalt Not Commit Adultery, Shalt Not Covet Thy Neighour's Property, Shalt Not Kill, Shalt Not Steal, Sloth, Take Lords Name In Vain, Triumphing over Others, Uncleanness, Wicked Imaginations, Wrath, and Etc.

Perdition :


Some people will not be worthy to dwell in any kingdom of glory.

A place of outer darkness.

They will be called "the sons of perdition" and will have to "abide a kingdom which is not a kingdom of glory".

This will be the state of "those who know [God's] power, and have been made partakers thereof, and suffered themselves through the power of the devil to be overcome, and to deny the truth and defy [God's] power".

Hands that Shed Innocent Blood

Denied the Holy Ghost

 
 
 


Daniel 12:4 But thou, O Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book, even to the time of the end: many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased.
(Why would the Lord tells us about another book will come forth in the Latter Days?)
(What are the words and the book the Lord is telling Daniel about, which will come in the last days? The Holy Bible is already here? So what is the other book, Daniel is talking about in the last days. It cannot be the Holy Bible; it must be some other book?)
(We have had horse and buggy to thousands of year, and since early 1800’s, man has been inventing things and now we are into space, so where is that other book other than the bible?)


Daniel 12:9 And he said, Go thy way, Daniel: for the words are closed up and sealed till the time of the end.
(Again, the Lord is telling us about a sealed book. Is there a book other than the Bible,.)
(God said it twice, another book to be reviled in last days. What is that other book? I am sure it would be like unto the Bible, having similar teaching, but a different book? Or did God forget about another book for us in the last days. And why until the last days, unless it has more meat to the text and the people were not ready for such meat then.)


Ezekiel 37:16 Moreover, thou son of man, take thee one stick, and write upon it, For Judah, and for the children of Israel his companions: then take another stick, and write upon it, For Joseph, the stick of Ephraim and for all the house of Israel his companions:
(Stick = Book or a Bible, Judah = Old and New Testament, David = Linage same as Jesus Christ)
(Joseph, the stick of Ephraim = Another Book or Bible, different from the Holy Bible.)
(Ephraim was the son of Joseph that was sold into Egypt, by his brothers. Another stick or Bible type Book will have to come forth like unto the Bible. It will be another witness of Jesus Christ. Which is, like onto the Holy Bible. Line up line, here a little, there a little, or give baby milk before meat. The Lord gave the Holy Bible like milk before another Book or another Bible type was like meat.)
(Where is it?)


Ezekiel 37:17 And join them one to another into one stick; and they shall become one in thine hand.
(The Holy Bible and the other Book or other Bible, tells about Jehovah and Jesus Christ and His teachings in both parts of the world.)
(When we join them together, which means for us to believe that they are both just as important as the other, and that they are both from Him.)
(The Bible and this other Book will tell about Jehovah or Jesus and His teachings in both parts of the world.)
(When we join them together, which means for us to believe that they are both just as important as the other, and that they are both from Jehovah or Jesus?)


Revelation 14:6 And I saw another angel fly in the midst of heaven, having the everlasting gospel to preach unto them that dwell on the earth, and to every nation, and kindred, and tongue, and people,
(Revelations is for us in the Last Days...)
(A gospel for the Last Days called the Everlasting Gospel or another Book or another Bible that has to be brought to all nations, kindreds, tongues, and people.)
(The Holy Bible and the other Book or another Bible is His teachings for us in the Last Days.)
(The Holy Bible is already here for thousands of years, but in the Last Days, is another Book or another Bible, which has never been seen before by man, until the Last Days. Many will reject it, for they will say, a bible, a bible, who needs another bible, we have a bible, and that is all we need. Not what God’s wants them to have.)


The Lord Jesus Christ, wants the best for you in these Latter-days and it is this sealed book just for you which is not the Bible. The Bible and this other Book will be one in His hand in the Last Days before Armageddon and go to all nations round the world.

Matthew 5:19 Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven: but whosoever shall do and teach them, the same shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven.

In the Sacred and Holy Name of Jesus Christ, Amen
