Putting It All Together – 4

What is “a voice of warning?” I really thought this topic was a great one and we, as members of the Mormon church, should really take advantage of this blessing. We are warned all the time, through the book of mormon and through our modern day prophets and apostles, of things to come that we should really watch out for and avoid.

These next few scriptures, the Lord reminds everybody of the power he has given his servants to help spread his message.

“And verily I say unto you, that they who go forth, bearing these tidings unto the inhabitants of the earth, to them is power given to seal both on earth and in heaven, the unbelieving and rebellious;

“Yea, verily, to seal them up unto the day when the wrath of God shall be poured out upon the wicked without measure—

“Unto the day when the Lord shall come to recompense unto every man according to his work, and measure to every man according to the measure which he has measured to his fellow man” (D&C 1:8–10).

We, as members of the LDS community, have a responsibility to help teach and warn our neighbors and people all around us. We need to share the gospel so we can help bring people closer to God and give everybody an opportunity to learn and hopefully partake of this wonderful gospel. “That command and warning of danger was given to those called as missionaries at the start of the Restoration. But the duty to warn our neighbor falls on all of us who have accepted the covenant of baptism. We are to talk with nonmember friends and relatives about the gospel” (Henry B. Eyring; General Conference, October 1998). We all have that responsibility. Through us, we can share and teach the everlasting Gospel to people and potentially change their life’s in ways that some of us can’t comprehend. “Behold, I sent you out to testify and warn the people, and it becometh every man who hath been warned to warn his neighbor” (D&C 88:81).

I really have a strong testimony of this Gospel. This Gospel has been the rock in my life to keep me level headed and on track to return to live with our Heavenly Father because that’s really the purpose of this life, to live, learn, experience, and, through Christ, return to live with our Father in Heaven.
