Message 68:5

The Lord is mindful of his people and has heard the prayers from the heart. I am commanded that answer shall come. Therefore, I came to speak life and the will of the Lord. I am the Elias. I am set to refine and make ready a people before the Lord. This is my mission. Deliverance shall come to many.

John comes to bring us hope and reassurance. His mission is to help us prepare to be Christ people. We need a lot of help, and John comes to give it to us.

2nd Nephi 6:11

Wherefore, after they are driven to and fro, for thus saith the angel, many shall be afflicted in the flesh and shall not be suffered to perish, because of the prayers of the faithful; wherefore, they shall be scattered, and smitten, and hated; nevertheless, the Lord will be merciful unto them, that when they shall come to the knowledge of their Redeemer, they shall be gathered together again to the lands of their inheritance.

Although the Lord was talking to the Nephites in this verse, we can still look at it today and get reassurance. Because our forefathers were humble and obeyed God, we know that the Lord will reunite Israel. It also means that if we do the same thing today, we will also receive the Lord’s blessings and enjoy eternity with our Redeemer.

3rd Nephi 13:33

But seek ye first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things shall be added unto you.

The most important thing that we need to work on in the life is striving to get to heaven.  We do this by following the gospel of Christ. If we do this we will have all that we need in our lives. This is very reassuring.

Genesis 1:1-5

“In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters. And God said, Let there be light: and there was light. And God saw the light, that it was good: and God divided the light from the darkness. And God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And the evening and the morning were the first day.”

I don’t know how God did it, but it is nice to know that God created everything that we know.  Our world is very complex and it nice to know that there was a master plan behind it.  It is very comforting to know that the God that created us also helps me though my life. If he can oversee the beginning and make it work, he diffidently can help me though my problems in my simple life. How has God helped you in your life?

Message 41:12

“I will cause my servants to be strong in the Lord that they shall stand before multitudes and proclaim the message of life to many that know it not, and thousands shall obey, for they shall come from afar and the hosts of Israel shall know their places. Therefore, be of good cheer, be pleasant in your work, speak the truth in humility, in kindness be your thoughts. Remember to be faithful and true, and the Lord God shall bring to pass all his strange act and fulfill all the promises that gladden the hearts of all those that think upon the Lord.”

We should be at peace knowing that God is in charge.  He tells us to trust him in all that we do. When we are week we can rest and know that God is our strength. He can get us though anything, no matter how hard that it seems.
