Book of Mormon...

  Our day was going pretty slow, so we decided to come and see if the website was working, and it is! So here is my thought of the day. People often ask us why we have the Book of Mormon? They say the bible is all we need, and I wonder, so does that mean that God is limited to only talk to one group of people? That doesn't sound like an all powerful God that was able to create us this world and everything that we can see. How can our God that can do all of this only speak to one group of people?! Well, the Prophet Nephi from the Book of Mormon had something to say on this very topic. That is found in the Book of Nephi Chapter 29 verses 7-11.

 "Know ye not that there are more nations than one? Know ye not that I, the Lord your God, have created all men, and that I remember those who are upon the isles of the sea; and that I rule in the heavens above and in the earth beneath; and I bring forth my word unto the children of men, yea, even upon all the nations of the earth? Wherefore murmur ye, because that ye shall receive more of my word? Know ye not that the testimony of two nations is a witness unto you that I am God, that I remember one nation like unto another? Wherefore, I speak the same words unto one nation like unto another. And when the two nations shall run together the testimony of the two nations shall run together also. And I do this that I may prove unto many that I am the same yesterday, today, and forever; and that I speak forth my words according to mine own pleasure. And because that I have spoken one word ye need not suppose that I cannot speak another; for my work is not yet finished; neither shall it be until the end of man, neither from that time henceforth and forever. Wherefore, because that ye have a Bible ye need not suppose that it contains all my words; neither need ye suppose that I have not caused more to be written. For I command all men, both in the east and in the west, and in the north, and in the south, and in the islands of the sea, that they shall write the words which I speak unto them; for out of the books which shall be written I will judge the world, every man according to their works, according to that which is written."

  Once again, I love how plan the Book of Mormon puts it. Did you forget that God is the same Yesterday, Today, and Forever? Do you think He loves one group of people more than another? NO!! Gods loves us all equally. He is a just merciful God, that is mindful of all of our needs and wishes to help us. We need to make sure our eyes are open and ready to recognize the very signs in front of us. As this scripture states, God is not done speaking, He will keep speaking as long as there are good people left on the earth. This is my testimony, and I leave it in the name of Jesus Christ, Amen

  1. I loved this Kev! I actually had a good visit with some Jehovah's Witness girls that came to Grandpa & Grandma's door the other day...trying to explain that we read the King James Version of the Holy Bible & that the Book of Mormon is ANOTHER testament of Jesus Christ & I wish I could quote scriptures like you probably can...but I think I ended up talking more than they did! Thanks for continuing to inspire us!!
