Ephesians 4:1-6

I therefore, the prisoner of the Lord, beseech you that ye walk worthy of the vocation wherewith ye are called, With all lowliness and meekness, with longsuffering, forbearing one another in love; Endeavouring to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace. There is one body, and one Spirit, even as ye are called in one hope of your calling; One Lord, one faith, one baptism, One God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all.


There is only one God, only one truth, only one church. Are you a part of it? How do you know? You know because you follow the teachings of Christ. If you follow all of his teachings and believe all that is said in the Bible, then you know that the Messages are true, that they Record of the Nephites are true. This is Christ’s Church. The question is now will you obey?


Morning service:

Word study: We started the study with Hebrews 11. Faith is a fundamentally part of belief in Christ. Faith allows us to step out on God’s word. This allows us to walk closer to God strengthens our belief and faith. It is time for us all to grow, both as a church and as people. We each have a job to do for Christ. We have to help each other reach other people. We have to be supportive of our brothers and sisters as we do our own jobs for Christ. Christ gives us the authority to do his work.

Wednesday Afternoon:

The first person to teach this afternoon was Norris Purifoy. There is only one Lord, one faith, and one baptism. The sprit allows us to have that close communication with God. It is the one the looks after on our journey. We must not run ahead of the plan of God. It is important to have the close communication with God though his sprit and prayer. God has given us a job, but he also gives us instructions. John is coming back to give us the fullness of the gospel so that we can take it to the nations of this earth. It is responsibility to take the gospel to the people and build the temple. The closer we are to God, the more that Satan pulls at us. It is a struggle that we will have to the rest of our lives.

The second person to teach this afternoon is Darren Bellamy. God does not give us anything that we cannot handle. These trials and tribulations that we have to go through in our daily life are to test us to see how we are going to react.  We have to be thankful for these trials because they strengthen us and make us closer to God. We need to clean ourselves of our sins. We have to prepare ourselves and our hearts before we ask God to forgive us. We have to be sincere in our request and want to change. We need let God judge those that do us harm, and not hold the grudge or retaliate. We need to love everyone, no matter what they do to us. God always makes sure that justice is served. It might not happen during this life, but it will be happen. God is in controle.

Tuesday Morning:

Larry Gosier led the congregation in praise and worship service. We sang songs, talked about how God was in our lives, and just how great God is.

After the praise and worship service Larry lead a word study on the 108th message. Christ is above all else. We cannot raise others up to the same level as Christ. John is just a servant of God performing his duty. We must keep Christ in our focus. We cannot add our own thought in ideas into Christ’s teachings. We must follow his truth and not get caught up in our own traditions.

References: Message 108

Tuesday Afternoon.

The first presenter this afternoon was William Holden. The Lord has directed us to take the message to all of mankind. The Lord uses many tools to bring all Christendom to come to his truth. The church has been established by God according to his plan. We must fall away from the traditions of men and must follow Christ’s instructions.  Satan is trying convince people to not follow the plan of God. All throughout history you can how people have fallen away from God.

The second speaker is Phil Meihls. Phil talked about the truth is found in the three books, the Bible, the Record of the Nephites, and the Word of the Lord. We have to be watchful of the devil. He is always out there trying to pull us away from God. We must take the time to study and praying to the Lord to stay with him and not fall away from the truth. We must search out and then teach the fullness of the gospel. Our carnal nature always pulls us away from God. We have to fight to stay with God.

Tuesday Evening

Terry Laws preached this evening. Christ is the Lord, he is God, he is the one, and he is the beginning and the end. Christ is cleansing this world and his church. Today is the day that we need to choose who we serve, God or man. We have to have action in our lives for God. We need to keep our focus on God, not the world. We must stand on the truth and with God. The devil is working very hard trying to pull us away from God. God allows this temptation to occur to allow us choose who we will serve. Christ love is a love that is greater than we can understand. It will always be there to comfort us and to lead us. We must take that love and then share it with the world with his gospel.

Here is a recap from yesterday’s Assembly.


Monday Morning Word study

Edward Coffey lead the word study this morning. We studied the 79th message.  We discussed who John the Baptist is and why he was put on this earth. John is a fellow servant of Christ with us. He was sent to help us prepare for the second coming of Christ and to prepare the way before him. God has a plan for the second coming and the signs of it are here for us to see. The questions is will we be able to see it before it is too late. We must pray to God for him to lead us in these end times. We must humble ourselves before our Lord. We do not know when Christ will return, but we have to prepare ourselves for that moment. We will be judged on what actions we do in our life and what we do with Christ’s words and instructions. Christ’s sprit will guide us, but that sprit will always match the written word of God. It is our responsibility to follow that sprit and word. We have to take Gods word to the people and let them chose what to do with it.

Monday Afternoon

Chris Laws spoke this afternoon. To follow Christ we must follow his plan and commandments. We must become humble, meek, submissive, patient, full of love and all longsuffering in the eyes of the Lord. We must go out and teach repentance of sins and faith in Christ. This is what will save people. We must go out and do this work with Christ’s love in our heart. We can only love one thing, God or man. To follow Christ we only have to do two things, Love him with our whole heart, soul, and body and to love others like ourselves. If we do these two things, we will accomplish everything else that Christ wants us to do. We must take this gospel to everyone, not just the people like us. All need the opportunity to find and follow God. Only Christ’s love will give us the strength to stay on the straight and narrow path. We must love our fellow workers and strive to hold onto the Christ’s truth.

Monday Evening

Ronny Beck spoke during the evening service. We are each called to serve God in our own way. We have to listen to his plan for us. We have to stay humble though. When we work for God we will become naked before the Lord. Everything is in God’s will. He will not go away when times are tough. We must follow God and not add our own ideas into the plan of God. God wants us to keep working in the work. We need him at times to help us through, but this is Christ’s work and it is powerful. Christ does not divide himself. There is only one truth. There is only one way to join the Church and only one authority of Christ.

Here is a recap of Day One of the Assembly. If you have time today please join us at 9:00, 2:00, 7:00 for services here.

Sunday Morning:

Opening: Larry Gosier opened the service with songs Blessed Assurance and The Church’s One Foundation. After the songs Larry talked a short time about how Jesus is the Christ. Jesus is God, but people did not believe him because he was one of the people. We have to keep searching and growing in the Lord if we want to stay with Him. People today find Christ and then stop learning about him. This action causes these people to be left behind from Christ and his full gospel. This all sounds simple and easy, but human nature makes it difficult to put into actions. We need to stay persistent allow God to help us on our journey. We have Sacraments that we remember Christ and have him enter our hearts.

We had a Season of Prayer so that each person could prepare themselves for the Sacraments. After Sacraments we had a session of testimony to allow people to share how God has blessed each one of us.

References: John 6:42-58

Sunday Afternoon:

Terry Laws spoke in the afternoon service. God has a plan for us and or the world at large. Ever since God created humans there has been a plan in place for us to have salvation and for the second coming of Christ. We have to follow the plan that God has given us. We cannot make our own plan or do it on our own time line.  We must have faith in the plan that God has laid out. We must each do our own part that he has given us. No matter what our individual role might be, we each have to proclaim the gospel to the people. The number one thing to do in the plan of God is to preach the truth to the world. If we do this well, the rest of the plan will fall into place. We have to each stay the course with our walk with God. There are many outside forces that will try to pull each one of us away from the truth. God gives us trials and tribulation to test us and see how we will respond. Each trial that we have to go through has a purpose behind it. Each one of us has a part in the plan of God. In order for his plan to work as desired we must do our part. If we do not do our part it affects every other person. God has given us his plan in his written word. This can be found in the three books: The Bible, The Word of the Lord, and The Record of the Nephites.

Sunday Night:

Larry Gosier spoke this evening. We have to know God and strive to stay with him. Strait is the path that leads to salvation. We have to stay focused on the prize. It only takes one step the wrong direction on the strait path to be off of it. Christ gospel is the same. It only takes one little thing to make what you say not agree with God. We need to keep grounded in Christ. There will be times when we are working for the Lord that the Devil will try to pull us away from the truth. We must stay firm to the teaching of Christ and not allow us to be caught up with the ideas of the world. We must follow the teachings of Christ. We cannot take what Christ said and then add our own flavor to it and expect Christ to accept it.

Today is the first day of the Assembly. Praise be to God. If you are around the Kansas City area please stop by. We are meeting at the Lone Jack Civic Center in Lone Jack, MO.

Message 50:13

Storms and earthquakes shall come and the nations must know the Lord is God.

There will be a time that people will know that God is in charge. In the last few years the number a dramatic natural disasters around the world have escalated. If you believe man, it is our doing, but God told us that he would cause these things to happen as a warning to all people. Let us heed the warning and follow his commandments and the teachings of Christ.

Matthew 9:37-38

Then saith he unto his disciples, The harvest truly is plenteous, but the labourers are few; Pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he will send forth labourers into his harvest.

The harvest has begun. The Church is growing all over the world. There are two questions though. One, will you join the rest who have seen the truth? Two, will you help gather the rest that will come in by the door?

Matthew 6:19-21

Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal: But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal: For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.

God does not want a monetary rich people. He wants us to use our money for the help of those who need it. It is important that deposit our treasure into our heavenly bank account. We do this by following the words of God and by letting his love shine through us.

Here are some more files for your enjoyment.

Mormon 3: 20-22

And these things do the Spirit manifest unto me; therefore I write unto you all. And for this cause I write unto you, that ye may know that ye must all stand before the judgment seat of Christ, yea, every soul which belong to the whole human family of Adam; and ye must stand to be judged of your works, whether they be good or evil; And also that ye may believe the gospel of Jesus Christ, which ye shall have among you; and also that the Jews, the covenant people of the Lord, shall have other witness besides that which they saw and heard, that Jesus, whom they slew, was the very Christ and the very God. And I would that I could persuade all ye ends of the earth to repent and prepare to stand before the judgment seat of Christ.

We will all be judge of our own works. Every person will be judged, no one will be left out. I hope and pray that you find Christ before your time is up. Only through Christ will we be able to attain everlasting life in heaven.

Message 113:1

“I come with a message from the Lord. I bring refreshing to all who will hear my words the Lord has put in my mouth. I come to speak his words, complying with his Spirit, will, and plan.

The words that John brings from the Lord should give you comfort and joy. When John comes back again like he has promised he would, the message that he will bring will give a new energy that can only come from the Lord. It will be like a hot shower after working all day. It will only be refreshing and energizing though if you listen and believe. Will you believe?

Message 112:5

Let none take part in this work until they come in by the door of baptism and are repentant of their sins and traditions of men, their manmade doctrines and styles of worship. Let none teach or preach that are not a part of this work. Let all learn the truth and come to this work. Salvation is of the Lord. Praise ye the Lord. Let the hands of the faithful carry on. Zion must come forth.

There is only one way to become a member of Christ’s Church, through the gate that he opened. We must strive to keep the truth in tact and not add any man made traditions. We must also make sure that we new people join they leave their tradition behind.

Alma 12:30-35

And they began from the time forth to call on his name; therefore God conversed with men, and made known unto them the plan of redemption, which had been prepared from the foundation of the world; and this he made known unto them according to their faith and repentance and their holy works. Wherefore, he gave commandments unto men, they having first transgressed the first commandments as to things which were temporal, and becoming as Gods, knowing good from evil, placing themselves in a state to act, or being placed in a state to act according to their wills and pleasures, whether to do evil or to do good—Therefore God gave unto them commandments, after having made known unto them the plan of redemption, that they should not do evil, the penalty thereof being a second death, which was an everlasting death as to things pertaining unto righteousness; for on such the plan of redemption could have no power, for the works of justice could not be destroyed, according to the supreme goodness of God. But God did call on men, in the name of his Son, (this being the plan of redemption which was laid,) saying: If ye will repent, and harden not your hearts, then I will have mercy upon you, through mine Only Begotten Son; Therefore, whosoever repenteth, and hardeneth not his heart, he shall have claim on mercy through mine Only Begotten Son, unto a remission of their sins; and these shall enter into my rest. And whosoever will harden his heart and will do iniquity, behold, I swear in my wrath that they shall not enter into my rest.

God’s plan has been set in place since the beginning. He has shared his plan with people for years and years. Will you listen when he tells you about it?

Message 92-4

There is none that have done right in all things, they have fallen short.

Nobody is perfect. We all have our faults and shortcomings. If you think that you don’t deserve to be save because of the stuff that you have done, don’t. That is not true. Everyone deserves to be saved. We have made mistakes and all need to mercy of Jesus Christ to make it into heaven. Nobody is above human nature.
