Prophecy Fulfilled...

  Today, I wish to discuss something that I found really cool. In the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day saints we claim to have a living prophet on the earth today. A man called by God to do Gods will and help us, Gods children by revealing to us Gods will. Like it talks about in the book of Amos 3:7 " Surely the Lord God will do nothing, but he revealeth his secrets unto his servants the prophets." One of these Latter day prophets back in 1974 said this which is exactly what is happening today.

"Prophecy about the Future of Missionary Work
In 1974, President Spencer W. Kimball issued an amazing prophecy about the technology driving the gospel message.
Technology will help spread the gospel. We need to enlarge our field of operation.… The Lord will lay in our hand inventions which we can scarcely conceive whereby we will be able to bring the gospel to the peoples of the world…. I have faith that the Lord will open doors when we have done everything in our power. I believe that the Lord is anxious to put into our hands inventions of which we laymen have hardly had a glimpse….We shall use the inventions the Lord has given us to awaken interest and acquaint people of the world with the truths, to ease their prejudices and give them a general knowledge. We shall need to answer specific questions, and perhaps that can be done by two-way radio and TV perfected to a point beyond our present imagination. It is conceivable that such a program greatly perfected could be multiplied ten thousand times in ten thousand tongues and dialects in ten thousand places far and near…. Tens of thousands of young missionaries endowed with the power from on high will follow up the proselyting.[ii]
“Two-way radio…TV perfected!” What did the Internet and related technologies look like to the prophet’s mind in 1974?"

Wow, that is the 3rd time that I have read it but I love it each time. How would a man in 1974, thats 16 years before I was born, have an idea like this and share it to the church unless he knew that it was true. I know that President Spencer W. Kimball was inspired by God. That this revelation was given to him by God and it is being fulfilled as I type the very words on this page. Now we are able to help people of all walks of life in all of the countries of the world, and we can do it while staying in the walls of our own home, or public library... This is a way to help people all around the world. I know that God still has many more things left to reveal because the world is not done changing. He is the same, and always will be but He can still help us in this changing world.
