Message 48:15

Be ye comforted one and all; let not your hearts be troubled. The Lord is mindful and he knoweth the desires of each heart. He will bless you and cause that you may have great joy, all ye that obey his will, for in him is salvation.

Let the peace of the Lord fill your heart. No matter what is going on in your life, the Lord will give you what you need. The biggest gift that Christ gives us is our salvation. We might not be able to see it now, but in the end it will be worth it.

Message 106:6-8

Now hear ye this message and be firmly established in obedience to the commandment of this baptism I bring to rid yourselves of sins and traditions of manmade doctrines wherein Satan has deceived and befuddled the work of God. Thus blindness has been in part. Now arise above it, bring it to pass of God’s great plan. Receive this baptism. Build yourselves in the circle of the Lord. Will it come to pass? Remember the Lord Jesus Christ is the truth, the way of life and salvation—deliverance from all sin. No other way can mankind be saved in the life of the flesh, this life of probation only. Thus mankind chooses this day what his destiny shall be in the hereafter—in the resurrection.

Will you listen to the truth? Will you change your ways to follow Christ’s? There is only one way to salvation, and that is Christ’s. I hope that everyone will listen and follow the truth.

Alma 34:33-34

And now, as I said unto you before, as ye have had so many witnesses, therefore, I beseech of you that ye do not procrastinate the day of your repentance until the end; for after this day of life, which is given us to prepare for eternity, behold, if we do not improve our time while in this life, then cometh the night of darkness wherein there can be no labor performed. Ye cannot say, when ye are brought to that awful crisis, that I will repent, that I will return to my God. Nay, ye cannot say this; for that same spirit which doth possess your bodies at the time that ye go out of this life, that same spirit will have power to possess your body in that eternal world.

We never know when our time might come. Because of this we need to be ready all the time for the end times. Many people say that they will come to God right before the end, but what happens that if death happens so quickly that you don’t have time? If you never have been serious before, why all of a sudden do you think that you will want God? Now is the time to come to Christ and receive his salvation.

3rd Nephi 15:1-9

And now it came to pass that when Jesus had ended these sayings he cast his eyes round about on the multitude, and saith unto them: Behold, ye have heard these things which I have taught before I ascended to my Father; therefore, whoso remembereth these sayings of mine and doeth them, him will I raise up at the last day. And it came to pass that when Jesus had said these words he perceived that there were some among them which marveled, and wondered what he would concerning the law of Moses; for they understood not the saying that old things had passed away, and that all things had become knew. And he saith unto them: Marvel not that I said unto you that old things had passed away, and that all things had become new.  Behold, I say unto you that the law is fulfilled that was given unto Moses. Behold, I am he that gave the law, and I am he which covenanted with my people Israel; therefore, the law in me is fulfilled, for I have come to fulfill the law; therefore it hath an end. Behold, I do not destroy the prophets, for as many as have not been fulfilled in me, verily I say unto you, shall all be fulfilled. And because I said unto you that old things hath passed away, I do not destroy that which hath been spoken concerning things which is to come. For behold, the covenant which I have made with my people is not all fulfilled; but the law which was given unto Moses hath an end in me. Behold, I am the law, and the light. Look unto me, and endure to the end, and ye shall live; for unto him that endureth to the end, will I give eternal life.

The Law of Moses is complete. We no longer have to worry about all the old way of doing things. Through Christ we no longer have to follow the Law. This is a great thing, in that now we have a much clear way to salvation. That way is through Christ and his teachings.

1 Chronicles 16:34-36

O give thanks unto the LORD; for he is good; for his mercy endureth for ever. And say ye, Save us, O God of our salvation, and gather us together, and deliver us from the heathen, that we may give thanks to thy holy name, and glory in thy praise. Blessed be the LORD God of Israel for ever and ever. And all the people said, Amen, and praised the LORD.

We should be thankful for everything in our lives, but must important we should be thankful for our salvation. Only through Christ can we attain true salvation. To show our thanks we need to praise God and worship him. This means that we must follow his commandments and live in a way that honors him.

Matthew 18:3-4

And said, Verily I say unto you, Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven. Whosoever therefore shall humble himself as this little child, the same is greatest in the kingdom of heaven.

When we come to Christ, we have to humble ourselves. If we realize that we are just a small part of a much larger plan, we will receive great blessings. If we don’t let go of our ego or pride, we are unable receive Christ’ salvation into the kingdom of heaven.

Message 76:8

The Lord’s plan has been decreed and it shall bear fruit. The great perils shall shake mankind and many will inquire of the Lord. Learning wisdom, their idols shall melt away, for the word shall go forth from Zion. Men’s hearts shall be cleansed—being ministered unto by the word of the Lord. The faithful shall stand forth and many shall find salvation with the Lord

As we get closer to the end of times, mankind will wake up and realize that he has been following wrong information. There will be a great multitude that will come to know the truth about God and his plan. His plan will happen according to his will, not ours. Let us find the truth today however, since we never know when the end will come.

Matthew 6:24-34

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. Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on. Is not the life more than meat, and the body than raiment? Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are ye not much better than they? Which of you by taking thought can add one cubit unto his stature? And why take ye thought for raiment? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin: And yet I say unto you, That even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. Wherefore, if God so clothe the grass of the field, which to day is, and to morrow is cast into the oven, shall he not much more clothe you, O ye of little faith? Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed? (For after all these things do the Gentiles seek:) for your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things. But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you. Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof.

Our salvation is the most important thing that we can look for on this earth. Let us not worry about earthly thing and focus on our salvation. If this is our main focus, then the rest will fall into place.

Matthew 22:15-22

Then went the Pharisees, and took counsel how they might entangle him in his talk. And they sent out unto him their disciples with the Herodians, saying, Master, we know that thou art true, and teachest the way of God in truth, neither carest thou for any man: for thou regardest not the person of men. Tell us therefore, What thinkest thou? Is it lawful to give tribute unto Caesar, or not? But Jesus perceived their wickedness, and said, Why tempt ye me, ye hypocrites? Shew me the tribute money. And they brought unto him a penny. And he saith unto them, Whose is this image and superscription? They say unto him, Caesar’s. Then saith he unto them, Render therefore unto Caesar the things which are Caesar’s; and unto God the things that are God’s. When they had heard these words, they marvelled, and left him, and went their way.

With everything that is going on in world today, let us not worry about earthy things. Let us not mix up our faith with our worldly thoughts and actions. We need to follow the rules of the land, but not by compromising our faith. At the same time we can force our faith on others. The best gift that God gave us was freedom of choice. We need to try to teach everyone God’s will, but let them decide their actions. With the tribulations that are occurring and that are going occurred the near future, let us be mindful that the ways of the Lord and keep his commandments. Let us not worry about the earthly politics and focus on salvation.

Mormon 7:1-10

And now, behold, I would speak somewhat unto the remnant of this people which are spared, if it so be that God may give unto them my words, that they may know of the things of their fathers; yea, I speak unto you, ye remnant of the house of Israel; and this is the words which I speak: Know ye that ye are of the house of Israel. Know ye that ye must come unto repentance, or ye cannot be saved. Know ye that ye must lay down your weapons of war, and delight no more in the shedding of blood, and take them not again, save it be that God shall command you. Know ye that ye must come to the knowledge of your fathers, and repent of all of your sins and iniquities, and believe in Jesus Christ, that he is the Son of God, and that he was slain by the Jews, and by the power of the Father he hath risen again, whereby he hath gained the victory over the grave; and also in him is the sting of death swallowed up. And he bringeth to pass the resurrection of the dead, whereby man must be raised to stand before his judgment seat. And he hath brought to pass the redemption of the world, whereby he that is found guiltless before him at the judgment day hath it given unto them to dwell in the presence of God in his kingdom, to sing ceaseless praises with the choirs above, unto the Father, and unto the Son, and unto the Holy Ghost, which is one God, in a state of happiness which hath no end. Therefore repent, and be baptized in the name of Jesus, and lay hold upon the gospel of Christ, which shall be set before you, not only in this record but also in the record which shall come unto the Gentiles from the Jews, which record shall come from the Gentiles unto you. For behold, this is written for the intent that ye may believe that; and if ye believe that ye will believe this also; and if ye believe this ye will know concerning your fathers, and also the marvelous works which were wrought by the power of God among them. And ye will also know that ye are a remnant of the seed of Jacob; therefore ye are numbered among the people of the first covenant; and if it so be that ye believe in Christ, and are baptized, first with water, then with fire and with the Holy Ghost, following the example of our Savior, according to that which he hath commanded us, it shall be well with you in the day of judgment. Amen.

No matter if we are decedents of the house of Israel or not, we must all call upon Christ to forgive our sins. Only through his salvation can we spend eternity in heaven. God sent us Christ for our salvation, not his own. We own him the praise and actions required to receive it.

Message 110:9

Yea, they shall learn of the Christ, the Savior and Messiah of all mankind, yea all the earth. Those that hear shall be delivered, redeemed and be saved in their inheritance, all that shall be with them serving the Lord. For they need not fear nor be confounded.

Only through Christ can we find peace and salvation. All will be able to hear this message and decide if they want to follow God or not. For those that do, they will set free from their sin and darkness. Will you be set free?

Luke 14:15-24

And when one of them that sat at meat with him heard these things, he said unto him, Blessed is he that shall eat bread in the kingdom of God. Then said he unto him, A certain man made a great supper, and bade many: And sent his servant at supper time to say to them that were bidden, Come; for all things are now ready. And they all with one consent began to make excuse. The first said unto him, I have bought a piece of ground, and I must needs go and see it: I pray thee have me excused. And another said, I have bought five yoke of oxen, and I go to prove them: I pray thee have me excused. And another said, I have married a wife, and therefore I cannot come. So that servant came, and shewed his lord these things. Then the master of the house being angry said to his servant, Go out quickly into the streets and lanes of the city, and bring in hither the poor, and the maimed, and the halt, and the blind. And the servant said, Lord, it is done as thou hast commanded, and yet there is room. And the lord said unto the servant, Go out into the highways and hedges, and compel them to come in, that my house may be filled. For I say unto you, That none of those men which were bidden shall taste of my supper.

God will take everyone who will come to his party. The problem is that the people are too busy with their daily lives to go to the Lord’s party. They get caught up in the world of man that they forget about the Lord and his will and way. We have to not focus on earthly things and focus on heavenly things.

Hebrews 3:11-15

So I sware in my wrath, They shall not enter into my rest.) Take heed, brethren, lest there be in any of you an evil heart of unbelief, in departing from the living God. But exhort one another daily, while it is called To day; lest any of you be hardened through the deceitfulness of sin. For we are made partakers of Christ, if we hold the beginning of our confidence stedfast unto the end; While it is said, To day if ye will hear his voice, harden not your hearts, as in the provocation.

We must remain faithful until the end. We should try to help each other to stay close to the word of God and not stray from the truth. We must not harden our hearts to what God has for us to do and the direction that he wants us to go. If you fall away it will not be pretty for you in the end.

Message 102: 54

Eternity has place for all that look to the Lord and view him as their Savior, Lord and King.

Following Christ is the key to spending eternity with him. I hope that you follow our Lord and his truth.

Luke 13:23-28

“Then said one unto him, Lord, are there few that be saved? And he said unto them, Strive to enter in at the strait gate: for many, I say unto you, will seek to enter in, and shall not be able. When once the master of the house is risen up, and hath shut to the door, and ye begin to stand without, and to knock at the door, saying, Lord, Lord, open unto us; and he shall answer and say unto you, I know you not whence ye are: Then shall ye begin to say, We have eaten and drunk in thy presence, and thou hast taught in our streets. But he shall say, I tell you, I know you not whence ye are; depart from me, all ye workers of iniquity. There shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth, when ye shall see Abraham, and Isaac, and Jacob, and all the prophets, in the kingdom of God, and you yourselves thrust out.”

There will be a great number if people who think they are fallowing God, but are not. When these people reach judgment they will see that they truth was out there, but they did not look for it. We cannot create the path of salvation ourselves. We must follow the path that is already built. Only the truth will set you free.

Mosiah 40:11-14

Now, concerning the state of the soul between death and the resurrection—Behold, it hath been made known unto me by an angel, that the spirits of all men, as soon as they are departed from this mortal body, yea, the spirits of all men, whether they be good or evil, are taken home to that God who gave them life. And then shall it come to pass, that the spirits of those which are righteous are received into a state of happiness, which is called paradise, a state of rest, a state of peace, where they shall rest from all their troubles, and from all care, and sorrow, etc. And then shall it come to pass, that the spirits of the wicked, yea, which are evil—for behold, they have no part nor portion of the Spirit of the Lord; for behold, they chose evil works rather than good; therefore the spirit of the devil did enter into them, and take possession of their house—and these shall be cast out into outer darkness; there shall be weeping, and wailing, and gnashing of teeth, and this because of their own iniquity, being led captive by the will of the devil.

Now this is the state of the souls of the wicked, yea, in darkness, and a state of awful, fearful looking for of the fiery indignation of the wrath of God upon them; thus they remain in this state, as well as the righteous in paradise, until the time of their resurrection.

Once our time on this earth is over, our fate for eternity is sealed. We cannot change where we spend eternal life after we die. So make the most of the time you have not and find salvation. You only get one life.


The turmoil is on. The greatest peril shall fill its place and mankind will inquire of the Lord their God. Their idols shall melt away; for the law shall go forth from Zion, cleansing the hearts of men. They shall stand before, being ministered unto for I come to give light, to instruct, to call, and to point the way.

Today is the day of turmoil. It is time for people to come to their God and receive their salvation. The way is being sent forth, it is up to you to follow.

John 14:5-7

Thomas saith unto him, Lord, we know not whither thou goest; and how can we know the way? Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me. If ye had known me, ye should have known my Father also: and from henceforth ye know him, and have seen him.

Jesus is the only way to God. With our we would be lost forever. With him we are found. Are you found?

Matthew 28:1-10

In the end of the sabbath, as it began to dawn toward the first day of the week, came Mary Magdalene and the other Mary to see the sepulchre. And, behold, there was a great earthquake: for the angel of the Lord descended from heaven, and came and rolled back the stone from the door, and sat upon it. His countenance was like lightning, and his raiment white as snow: And for fear of him the keepers did shake, and became as dead men. And the angel answered and said unto the women, Fear not ye: for I know that ye seek Jesus, which was crucified. He is not here: for he is risen, as he said. Come, see the place where the Lord lay. And go quickly, and tell his disciples that he is risen from the dead; and, behold, he goeth before you into Galilee; there shall ye see him: lo, I have told you. And they departed quickly from the sepulchre with fear and great joy; and did run to bring his disciples word. And as they went to tell his disciples, behold, Jesus met them, saying, All hail. And they came and held him by the feet, and worshipped him. Then said Jesus unto them, Be not afraid: go tell my brethren that they go into Galilee, and there shall they see me.

He has and is risen. By Christ doing this one action, he has created a way for us to do that same. Through Christ, we all can be raised.

Matthew 27:46-54

And about the ninth hour Jesus cried with a loud voice, saying, Eli, Eli, lama sabachthani? that is to say, My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me? Some of them that stood there, when they heard that, said, This man calleth for Elias. And straightway one of them ran, and took a spunge, and filled it with vinegar, and put it on a reed, and gave him to drink. The rest said, Let be, let us see whether Elias will come to save him. Jesus, when he had cried again with a loud voice, yielded up the ghost. And, behold, the veil of the temple was rent in twain from the top to the bottom; and the earth did quake, and the rocks rent; And the graves were opened; and many bodies of the saints which slept arose, And came out of the graves after his resurrection, and went into the holy city, and appeared unto many. Now when the centurion, and they that were with him, watching Jesus, saw the earthquake, and those things that were done, they feared greatly, saying, Truly this was the Son of God.

As we prepare to celebrate Easter this Sunday, let us remember that Christ died for us. He took upon our sins so that we might have everlasting life. This was very hard for him. By taking our sins, he had to leave the presence of God. Today when we sin, we also leave the presence of God. This is why salvation and repentance is so important. Without it, we would be in darkness with no hope of ever seeing light.
