Whoops! Yesterday, I skipped ahead and did not write anything about Mormon 8, and I wrote about Mormon 9. So, yesterday, I wrote about chapter 9 and then chapter 8; and today, I rearranged what I wrote, so I won’t be confused in the future.
I love the guys in my quorum, and I love the people around me. I love my wife, family, and friends. I am blessed by the company that I keep; but even more so, I love God:
“But behold, I will show unto you a God of miracles, even the God of Abraham, and the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob; and it is that same God who created the heavens and the earth, and all things that in them are.
Behold, he created Adam, and by Adam came the fall of man. And because of the fall of man came Jesus Christ, even the Father and the Son; and because of Jesus Christ came the redemption of man.
And because of the redemption of man, which came by Jesus Christ, they are brought back into the presence of the Lord; yea, this is wherein all men are redeemed, because the death of Christ bringeth to pass the resurrection, which bringeth to pass a redemption from an endless sleep, from which sleep all men shall be awakened by the power of God when the trump shall sound; and they shall come forth both small and great, and all shall stand before his bar, being redeemed and loosed from this eternal band of death, which death is a temporal death.
And then cometh the judgment of the Holy One upon them; and then cometh the time that he that is filthy shall be filthy still; and he that is righteous shall be righteous still; he that is happy shall be happy still; and he that is unhappy shall be unhappy still.” (Mormon 9: 11-14)
I pray that I may be happy. Therefore, I choose to obey His will.
Ths is what I previously wrote after reading Mormon 9: All Encompassing Truth
