The Lord’s Church Just Keeps Growing!

I have seen much prosperity in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. There are now more than 14 million Latter-day Saints world-wide (Statistical Report, 2010). It is amazing to think that in 1830, 182 years ago, there were only six people in the church; but this growth has not only occurred in the last 182 years. This type of growth was documented anciently, in the scriptures, too:

“And it came to pass . . . there was exceedingly great prosperity in the church, insomuch that there were thousands who did join themselves unto the church and were baptized unto repentance.

And so great was the prosperity of the church, and so many the blessings which were poured out upon the people, that even the high priests and the teachers were themselves astonished beyond measure.

And it came to pass that the work of the Lord did prosper unto the baptizing and uniting to the church of God, many souls, yea, even tens of thousands.

Thus we may see that the Lord is merciful unto all who will, in the sincerity of their hearts, call upon his holy name.

Yea, thus we see that the gate of heaven is open unto all, even to those who will believe on the name of Jesus Christ, who is the Son of God.” (Helaman 3:24-28)

This is what I previously wrote after reading Helaman 3:  Finding True Happiness
