Something I have been thinking about lately is revelation. Not the Book of Revelation but revelation that our Heavenly Father provides to us through The Gift of The Holy Ghost. For those who are not baptized members of Christ’s Restored Church He does provide it through The light of Christ. I want to break down my thoughts and hopefully I do so, eloquently.
We know that God’s purpose is “to bring to pass the immortality and eternal life of man.” (Moses 1:39) or in other words… He want’s us to return back to Him and become like Him. So He made a plan! A plan that we all knew about in our pre-mortal life. That plan included the creation of the earth so we could come dwell here on earth and have the opportunity to progress and that began with Adam and Eve. “Adam fell that men might be; and men are, that they might have joy.” (2nd Nephi 2:25) Because Adam fell, we needed a way to return to our Heavenly Father and this was through His Son, Jesus Christ. “The atoning sacrifice of Jesus Christ made it possible for us to overcome the effects of the Fall.” (Preach My Gospel, Chapter 2) Now I want to pause right here in this wonderful plan our Heavenly Father has laid out.
We live in this world today, the world filled with “effects of the fall”. We currently are suffering from a pandemic, economic downfall, politics, sicknesses, family troubles, natural disasters, and so much more. This is why I believe receiving revelation is so important because if we don’t I think we can get lost in all the “effects of the fall.” Let us not do that, rather let us have Hope! We need hope! We need guidance, we NEED a Savior. Please watch this video The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints recently published:
Isn’t this just a wonderful video? I cried the first time I watched it. I’d just like to end this blog post by saying as we receive guidance from The Holy Ghost we obtain Hope. We obtain a more grand perspective and we gain the ability to navigate “the effects of the fall”. I hope that whoever is reading this can feel Gods love for you. I know that God loves us and that is why he has sent so many ways through His Son, Jesus Christ to commune and be with him even though it means we can’t see Him with our physical eyes, I promise we can see Him with our spiritual eyes. I have a hope that shines bright through our Savior Jesus Christ. I have a hope that He will always guide me as a listen and heed his words. I have a hope that one day everything will be fair and correct. I love my Heavenly Father and My Savior Jesus Christ and more importantly I love His wonderful Plan that He made just for me and you.
