Mark 10:17-22

And when he was gone forth into the way, there came one running, and kneeled to him, and asked him, Good Master, what shall I do that I may inherit eternal life? And Jesus said unto him, Why callest thou me good? there is none good but one, that is,  God. Thou knowest the commandments, Do not commit adultery, Do not kill, Do not steal, Do not bear false witness, Defraud not, Honour thy father and mother. And he answered and said unto him, Master, all these have I observed from my youth. Then Jesus beholding him loved him, and said unto him, One thing thou lackest: go thy way, sell whatsoever thou hast, and give to the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven: and come, take up the cross, and follow me. And he was sad at that saying, and went away grieved: for he had great possessions.

To truly follow God we need to remember what our focus should be. It should be how we are serving him, not how much stuff we own. Possessions do not show the love of God. We must show the love ourselves by giving what we have to the work. This means both money and time.

Message 101:8

The work may move slowly. The young and old will be awakened to this greater light.

We should not worry about the timing of Christ’s plan. Right now it is growing, but at a slow rate. We know that this will not always be the case though. Very soon the growth will be quick and fast.

Matthew 24:36

But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only.

Christ is talking about the second coming in the verse, but it also applies to your life and death. For our death seals our fate just like the second coming does. Today I was walking in the ruins of Pompeii were an entire town was buried alive in a matter of minutes. It was 87 AD.  Those poor Roman’s had several temples in town all built to worship different gods. They never had the opportunity to hear about Christ and the salvation that he brings before their quick death. Will you listed to that salvation and follow his gospel incase that happens to you?

Alma 25:2-5

And now, I ask, what great blessings hath he bestowed upon us? Can ye tell? Behold, I answer for you; for our brethren, the Lamanites, were in darkness, yea, even in the darkest abyss, but behold, how many of them are brought to behold the marvelous light of God! And this is the blessing which hath been bestowed upon us, that we have been made instruments in the hands of God to bring about this great work. Behold, thousands of them do rejoice, and have been brought into the fold of God. Behold, the field was ripe, and blessed are ye, for ye did thrust in the sickle, and did reap with your mights, yea, all the day long did ye labor; and behold the number of your sheaves! And they shall be gathered into the garners, that they are not wasted.

Let us be the tools of God. There needs to be a great work done and someone has to do it. Are you going to prepare yourself to be the tool that God uses for the harvest? We have the instructions located in The Bible, The Record of the Nephites, an The Word of the Lord. We you follow them?

1st Nephi 19:7

For the things which some men esteem to be of great worth, both to the body and soul, others set at naught and trample under their feet. Yea, even the very God of Israel do men trample under their feet; I say, trample under their feet but I would speak in other words—they do set him at naught, and hearken not to the voice of his counsels.

We should strive to be good followers of God, not good followers of positions. We are taught by society that things will make us happy. This is not the case. Only God can make us truly happy. Don’t tarnish God for the sake of stuff that is empty and that you cannot take with you when you die.

Matthew 2:13-18

And when they were departed, behold, the angel of the Lord appeareth to Joseph in a dream, saying, Arise, and take the young child and his mother, and flee into Egypt, and be thou there until I bring thee word: for Herod will seek the young child to destroy him. When he arose, he took the young child and his mother by night, and departed into Egypt: And was there until the death of Herod: that it might be fulfilled which was spoken of the Lord by the prophet, saying, Out of Egypt have I called my son. Then Herod, when he saw that he was mocked of the wise men, was exceeding wroth, and sent forth, and slew all the children that were in Bethlehem, and in all the coasts thereof, from two years old and under, according to the time which he had diligently enquired of the wise men. Then was fulfilled that which was spoken by Jeremy the prophet, saying, In Rama was there a voice heard, lamentation, and weeping, and great mourning, Rachel weeping for her children, and would not be comforted, because they are not.

Just like the Lord did for his Son and earthly family, God will always protect us when we need it. King Harod did was afraid of Jesus because he would become King of the Jews, but what they did not understand was the type of King that Jesus was going to become. When King Harod killed all the little babies, the Lord made sure that Joseph had moved the family to Egypt to save the young Christ’s life. Since we are all God’s children we can be reassured that when we need protection, God will be right there to give it. Sometimes it might be different than what we want, but God will never leave us.

John 8:1-11

Jesus went unto the mount of Olives. And early in the morning he came again into the temple, and all the people came unto him; and he sat down, and taught them. And the scribes and Pharisees brought unto him a woman taken in adultery; and when they had set her in the midst, They say unto him, Master, this woman was taken in adultery, in the very act. Now Moses in the law commanded us, that such should be stoned: but what sayest thou? This they said, tempting him, that they might have to accuse him. But Jesus stooped down, and with his finger wrote on the ground, as though he heard them not. So when they continued asking him, he lifted up himself, and said unto them,  He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her. And again he stooped down, and wrote on the ground. And they which heard it, being convicted by their own conscience, went out one by one, beginning at the eldest, even unto the last: and Jesus was left alone, and the woman standing in the midst. When Jesus had lifted up himself, and saw none but the woman, he said unto her, Woman, where are those thine accusers? hath no man condemned thee? She said, No man, Lord. And Jesus said unto her, Neither do I condemn thee: go, and sin no more.

Let us not judge others. We cannot stand here say that this sin is greater than that sin, or that that person is going to hell no matter what. We all have sins our lives that we comment. If Christ is so easy to forget of our sins, shouldn’t we be the same way. Let us not dwell in past actions, but look ahead to what needs to be accomplished.

Message 60:6

But fear not men, nor what they may say of this work, for in their hearts is selfishness and hate. They are carnally minded and cannot see the Lord’s hand move, but seek their own glory and not the glory of the Lord.

Let us not worry about others when we live our lives and work for God. Let us ware God on outside and let everyone know it. God will not forsake us. Others may say bad things about and to us because of our beliefs, but we cannot allow that to influence us in our work for the Lord. Stay strong in the Lord and reach out to him and other believers for your strength.

3rd Nephi 23 -24

But if thine eye be evil, thy whole body shall be full of darkness. If, therefore, the light that is in thee be darkness, how great is that darkness! No man can serve two masters; for either he will hate the one and love the other, or else he will hold to the one and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon.

Let us keep an eye on what is important, Christ and his truth. We cannot both be serving the ways of the Lord and the ways of man. We need to choose. Jealousy, envy, and greed are all ways of man that will take you away from Christ. Let us not worry about becoming great in the eyes of man, but let strive to become pleasing in the eyes of God.

Message 49:8-9

Let the work continue in all parts, many are coming to do the Lord’s will. Let all be up and doing for their responsibility is to represent Christ and his Church. Those that would be his bride must come in by the door and be baptized. Let the hands be laid on all that the Lord will confirm their work by the Holy Ghost. There are many that have long represented Christ. Those that will hear his voice in very deed will come into the Church of Christ that is again being established with all its gifts and blessings, and represent Christ and his Church.

When you hear about the Elijah message, you need to act on it. When we learn something new and don’t act on we are worse off than we were before even though we might be doing the same thing as before. As you learn and understand the truthfulness of this gospel and message, we need to act on it. This includes being baptized into the Church of Christ with the Elijah Message.

“ What have I done?

This is the day the Lord has made let us rejoice and be glad in it. I write to you this day with love in my heart and the desire to serve the Lord. I tell myself that every day. Then I ask myself. What have I done to get the word of God to the people? We read and study the word of God but we keep it among ourselves. That is not what God commanded us to do. He said to take His word to the World.

Matt.28:18 & 19. Go ye therefore, and teach all Nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen.

He called us to take His gospel to the world, to our friends and neighbors, to every soul. We pray for the return of the Messenger but what have we done with what we have?

Msg. 83:17. This is the Midnight Cry. Come, join ye to the rest and peace the Lord can give. Go ye to meet the Lord-in service to the people. Your reward shall be sure.

Msg. 22:18. Oh man, that profess the name of the Lord, remember the eyes of the Lord are upon you: you cannot continue in your unrighteous ways before the Lord your who has created thee. He is long suffering and full of mercy, but He will reward thee as thy works will be.

Msg. 81:9. Add to your faith knowledge, wisdom and obedience in all things, hope in eternal salvation,

Msg. 46:8. This is a day of haste when my work must be done. Those that will heed and obey I will bless, those that will not will loose in the end. Some have grieved me because of man’s traditions, hardness of heart and sin, causing my work to suffer. Some will yet repent while others will go to destruction. Those that do not defend this cause have no part in this work. Let them know they must repent to do my will. Be watchful for it is my voice they oppose, and my design they deny. In their hearts they have rejected the message I have brought from time to time and they are not willing to be directed by mine angel I have sent.

Msg. 81:30. Let the work continue everywhere, far and near. Let all take courage for the Lord has sent me. I am your fellow servant. I bring the warning of Christ coming and instructions of His will to the Church.

Msg. 46:10. “Blessed are the meek and all those that consecrate themselves unto Me. I will be with them, saith your Lord, and stand you in holy places, protecting you when the great indignation cometh. You shall be called mine when I make up my jewels.”

Please read that verse again very slow and listen to what the Lord is saying to us. There is a warning and there is a promises and if we are not doing His will we will loose. Let us move this day for the Lord. Remember the Lord said that no man know the day or the hour the Lord will come. When will you draw your last berth?

Msg. 46:9. Yea behold, I forgive those that repent and walk humbly before me. Yea, my sheep know my voice and they will hear when I call upon them. How is it that some say they love me, yet deny and oppose my design? Know ye not that I know your thoughts and intents of your heart? Why call ye me Lord, Lord, and do not the things I say? Verily, I say not all such shall enter my rest: for in their traditions they have gone astray. They shall not have voice or vote in my work of the Church of Christ.

Msg. 81:12. Fear not what man may say of you and your work. There are those when they hear will go all the way with you and the Message I bring.

Msg. 82:17. Peace like a river of pure waters will flow to all the faithful that heed and obey. Give to them the words I bring. Let gladness and peace in God be in your hearts and the oppressors will fade away. 18. Seek to save. Seek to remove the doubts, lest it destroy the doubter.

Msg. 88:36. Satan knows his time is short and he will work to destroy all that he can. He will work to hinder and deceive and lay stumbling blocks for mankind to fall over. He will puff up in pride and he will discourage in hope, and hinder the faith of many if you do not watch and pray. Have faith in the words of the prophets and the Lord and what I bring and he will not have power over you. 37. Therefore come against him, break his yoke by true belief and study the word-obey the Lord’s Spirit and make ready.

Msg. 88:25. Be glad and rejoice ye wise men, ye that claim to be leaders, obey and your work will come higher in greatness if you heed what I have to say.

Msg. 113: 3&4. This Message is to the appointed and anointed ones of this work to be taken to all the world. All that hear and obey will find peace to their souls. My message is one of love to all that obey it. (4.) The Lord Jesus is the Resurrection and the Life. He is the Savior, Redeemer and King of all mankind. All that hear and obey have right to the Tree of Life and Eternity. His Glory shall overshadow them.

Msg.105:13. To My servants, saith the Lord, come together in love, open the way, hear the Words I send by My Messenger, Obey them and it will be well with you.

We can walk around with a million dollars in our pockets and if we don’t use it to help other people what good is it? Now you just think of what God has put in our pockets. Are we going to give it to the people, or keep it in our pockets? What are we going to do? Give and live or keep it and die. Its our choice, God want force us. But He said that He would require it of us.

May the spirit of Christ touch each heart and cause an awaking to Gods commands.

What have I done?

Yours in Christ,

Apostle Larry T. Gosier Williams.
