4th New Member Discussion Essay

1932 words - 8 pages

Brothers & Sisters we are privileged to be living in the most glorious of times, A time when all the generations of mankind come together. A time just before our Savior appears for his millennial reign. Think about that for a moment.

Last General Conference in April our beloved Prophet spoke on this subject and reiterated the fact that these are perilous times. We know this to be true. Dallin H. Oaks spoke on the signs of the times & our need to prepare for his 2nd coming. He told us there are 4 matters indisputable to Latter-day Saints. 1.

When we accept the gospel of Jesus Christ and are baptized into his church we accept the responsibility of sharing it with others, particularly relatives and friends.

Great blessings are promised the House of Israel. Some of us may not even comprehend these great blessings, - blessings of the priesthood, of exaltation, salvation and eternal life, the first resurrection, thrones, kingdoms, principalities, powers, dominions, to be gods and have eternal increase and have no end, even the angels are to be subject unto them, all power will be given unto them. He has watched over and protected the House of Israel down thru the ages. We, you and I, are the House of Israel. This is the covenant made to Abraham but continued thru his son Isaac, then Jacob whose name was changed to Israel and he had 12 sons. But do you think about Abrahams other sons and daughters. Ishmael is also a son of Abraham by Hagar. Ishmael also had 12 sons and Esau who Jacob’s brother and son of Isaac also took of Ishmael’s daughters to wife. After Sarah died, Abraham married Katura and had 7 more sons and daughters. Many other people occupied the earth at the time of the Lord’s covenant with Abraham. They also have descendents But only thru Jacob and his literal or by adoption descendents does Abraham’s covenant continue But where much is given much is expected. And rightly so. Why? We may ask.

1 Nephi 15:18 gives insight. The House of Israel is a peculiar treasure unto the Lord. “In the latter days all the nations, kindred, tongues and peoples are to be blessed by them”. How, we may ask? Missionary work.

Sometimes we feel that we’re doing our part by feeding the missionaries and sending our sons or daughters out on full time missions or contributing to the missionary fund but this is not enough and doesn’t full fill our requirements.

Mark 16:15 “Go ye into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature”

D&C 84:74 “Those who have received the kingdom must preach it unto those who have not”

1 Corinthians 9:16 “necessity is laid upon me; yea woe is unto me, if I preach not the gospel”

Pay particular attention to this 1 Corinthians: “woe is unto me if I preach not the gospel.”
Do not suppose that he is not talking to you and me. Just as he gave Adam & Eve a commandment in the Garden of Eden to multiply and replenish the earth that is as binding on us as it was them. So is our individual and personal command to share the gospel

The mission of the church is 3 fold. Preach the gospel, redeem the dead and perfect the saints. The last is primarily done by laboring in the first two.
