I love the Gospel!!!! It truly is the best blessing in the world to be able to share to this wonderful restored gospel to Heavenly Fathers children here in upstate New York :)
So this morning I was reading in the Book of Mormon in Mosiah, I came to love chapters 14-15. They are talking about Christ and truly how important he is to have in our lives because he loosened the bands of death for us so we are able to have eternal life. I truly loved verses 22-27 , " And now, the resurrection of all the prophets, and all those that have believed in their words, or all those that have kept the commandments of God, shall come forth in the first resurrection; therefore, they are the first resurrection. They are raised to dwell with God who has redeemed them; thus they have eternal life through Christ, who has broken the bands of death. And these are those who have part in the first resurrection; and these are they that have died before Christ came, in their ignorance, not having salvation declared unto them. And thus the Lord bringeth about the restoration of these; and they have a part in the first resurrection, or have eternal life, being redeemed by the Lord. And little children also have eternal life. But behold, and fear, and tremble before God, for ye ought to tremble; for the Lord redeemeth none such that rebel against him and die in their sins; yea, even all those that have perished in their sins ever since the world began, that have wilfully rebelled against God, that have known the commandments of God, and would not keep them; these are they that have no part in the first resurrection. Therefore ought ye not to tremble? For salvation cometh to none such; for the Lord hath redeemed none such; yea, neither can the Lord redeem such; for he cannot deny himself; for he cannot deny justice when it has its claim." I love these verses because it brings so much comfort knowing that because of Jesus Christ the bands of death are loosen and we can have the wonderful gift of Eternal Life and it is amazing!!!!!
