ePub feed of Interpreter: A Journal of Latter-day Saint Faith and Scholarship

Abstract: The Book of Mormon begins at a pivotal point in Israelite history and in the history of the ancient Near East more broadly. With the fall of Assyria and the power vacuum that grew out of Assyria's demise, questions of sovereignty were of paramount concern. It was at that time that Lehi led his family […] The post Assyria and the “Great Church” of Nephi's Vision first appeared on The Interpreter Foundation.

The Great Salt Lake Needs 9 More Feet Utah's record snowfall has raised the Great Salt Lake a foot, but that's nine feet short of what the Lake needs to survive. Dave and Debbie discuss how Utah has treated the lake like a line of credit, and now the state is taking action on the edge of its collapse. Rare earth minerals like lithium exist in the lake and add pressure to conservation efforts. BYU Professor of aquatic ecology Ben Abbott, who helped compile the report that predicted the Lake's 5 year lifespan, joins the show to discuss which conservation efforts will help the Lake most.   Spanish Fork is FitCity  Mayor Mike Mendenhall of Spanish Fork speaks to a new mental and physical health initiative in Spanish Fork. Mayor Mendenhall also discusses a proposal on capitol hill that would require golf courses to share their water use.  Unlike other utah towns, Spanish Fork residents pay per gallon of gray water and the golf course runs off of an efficient, automated system. Dave and Debbie discuss how the city's efforts lead the way on water conservation efforts across the state.    Students of Spanish Fork High School The Nonprofit organization Latinos in Action is working to to raise Latino students' grades and academic involvement. Karen Avila of the Spanish Fork chapter joins the show to explains how LIA aims to help strengthen Latino community and bridge the achievement gap. Morgan Beckstrom is the national champion for rodeo barrel racing, and she shares how she won the top trophy for the event. To round out the student focus, student body president Sidney Smith explains why Spanish Fork students are unique.    Cancer diagnosis prompts a rise in Radon testing in Utah homes Since a Nephi woman discovered her house's radon levels gave her terminal cancer, radon testing kits have flown from the shelves. The radioactive substance collected in her basement and gave her the equivalent of three cigarette packs a day of lung deterioriation. Ladd Egan from KSL 5 TV covered the story and details how Utahns can check their own homes and respond to higher radon levels.    Vineyard: Ghost Town to Boom Town Vineyard, Utah grew from 110 people in 2010 to 11,866 residents in 2019. That's a nearly 11,00% jump in population. Cate Klundt, Government Affairs Director for Utah Association of Realtors and Vineyard Mayor Julie Fullmer discuss why people are flocking to the town and what's next.   How are Utah Universities preparing for Chat GPT?  High school students use it to write papers in seconds, and colleges are worried. ChatGPT is an artificial intelligence program that can take inputs like "five paragraph essay" and "civil war" to produce high quality, human-looking writing. How will this affect the admissions and academic processes at universities? UVU Associate Professor Armen LLikchyan of Technology Management clarifies how colleges are preparing for this new era of machine learning.   Student Success and Growth in Nebo School District  Explosive growth across Utah County means the education system must also expand quickly. How are Spanish Fork's schools responding to the waves of new students? Lana Hisky of Nebo School District and Spanish Fork Principal Matt Christensen explore what's behind local schools' high graduation rates and overall success.    Eye on the Hill  Dave and Debbie join KSL Political Reporter Lindsay Aerts to find out the latest on the legislative session.    SafeUT app save 14-year-old girl from kidnapping  A 14-year-old girl was rescued after she was kidnapped by a 26-year-old man, all thanks to the SafeUT app. It's a major success story for the app, which is designed for teachers and students. Dave and Debbie discuss the story and check in with Spanish Fork High Principal Matt Christensen and Josh Jenson, Behavioral and Mental Health Teacher at Spanish Fork High School to give a ground-level view of the app's success and how they support student mental health at Spanish Fork High School.    UTA expansions in Utah County We've discussed the growth of population and school districts, but what about the transportation system? UTA considers a number of expansions to their current train and bus lines, maybe even a new stop or two for Frontrunner. Here to discuss UTA's new plans is Jeff Acerson, who represents Tooele and Utah County on the UTA Board of Trustees.    KSL in Your Community: A History Temple and Theatre in Spanish Fork  The annual Festival of Colors draws thousands of visitors to Spanish Fork's Radha Krishna temple. However, according to President of Utah's Krishna Temples Charu Das, that just scratches the surface of what the temple offers for worshipers and visitors alike (llamas potentially inclued). Angelus Theatre has been a mainstay in Spanish Fork culture since its founding in 1912. The building has undergone a number of face lifts, and most recently, retransitioned from an abandoned movie theater to a vibrant stage theatre. Curt Gordon, current owner of the Angelus, joins the show to explain the history and future of the iconic cultural hub.See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

One of the big differences between the Heartland & Mesoamerican Theories of the Book of Mormon deals with volcanoes. Very few people have studied Book of Mormon geology. During the destruction found in 3rd Nephi, it mentions earthquakes and “mists of darkness.” Meso proponents believe this is a reference to volcanoes, and there are several candidates in Mesoamerica. These volcanoes are not found in the Heartland, and Heartlanders dismiss this possibility. Jerry Grover has a background in geology and has written a book called “Geology of the Book of Mormon.” He's the first to make an in-depth look at the Book of Mormon from a geological point of view.

How intimately does God know you and watch over you?—Invitation: All of God's children here on earth showed in premortality that when they see clearly, they choose Jesus Christ. How can (and should) this understanding affect the way that we interact with God's children here on earth, especially with those who may not share our religious beliefs or lifestyle?— Quotes & Links: Link to FIND HIM New Testament Study Guide:https://www.seagullbook.com/find-him-new-testament-come-follow-me-guidebook.html Whenever we fall short in this life, we would each do well to remember that our faith in Jesus Christ saved us “in the beginning” (John 1:1), and our continued faith in the Savior during this life will enable us “to call down the powers of heaven for ourselves, for our families, and for our fellow travelers in this sometimes difficult journey back to our heavenly home” (Thomas S. Monson, “Kindness, Charity, and Love,” Ensign, May 2017). Rest assured, Jesus Christ will save us if we choose to continually hold fast to Him (see 1 Nephi 15:24)! (FIND HIM New Testament Study Guide by Ganel-Lyn Condie and John Fossum, p.7)“Some may think the idea of a society without guile is preposterous in this day. If so, it is because of the power Satan has over the hearts of men. With the Lord's help, the Saints can be without guile. Being honest and fair helps rather than hinders success and prosperity. … Can you imagine a total absence of contention and disputes, with no one ever attempting to deceive another? How would life be if we always were certain, without question, that what others represent to us is true? Theft would be unknown. We would have little use for jails or prisons, and litigation would be rare. The greatest blessing that would come to a society without guile is the individual, personal inner peace that comes to those who know they are doing right and know their lives are acceptable to the Lord. A society without guile is possible.” [1988–A:80, Joseph B. Wirthlin, Without Guile]“The Savior's reply demonstrated an even greater power of perception. He told Nathanael that before Philip had called him to come and see, Jesus saw him under a fig tree. Nathanael apparently had undergone some surpassing spiritual experience while praying, or meditating, or worshiping under a fig tree. The Lord, though absent in body, had been present with Nathanael in spirit. Nathanael then recognized the Savior as the Christ and said, “Rabbi, thou art the Son of God; thou art the King of Israel” [1988–A:80, Joseph B. Wirthlin, Without Guile]—Talk of Him is presented by Seagull Book and hosted by Ganel-Lyn Condie and John Fossum.

Learning by faith requires spiritual, mental, and physical exertion and not just passive reception. It is in the sincerity and consistency of our faith-inspired action that we indicate to our Heavenly Father and His Son, Jesus Christ, our willingness to learn and receive instruction from the Holy Ghost” (David A. Bednar, “Seek Learning by Faith,” Ensign or Liahona, September 2007, 64).“We should not expect the Church as an organization to teach or tell us everything we need to know and do to become devoted disciples and endure valiantly to the end. Rather, our personal responsibility is to learn what we should learn, to live as we know we should live, and to become who the Master would have us become. And our homes are the ultimate setting for learning, living, and becoming” (David A. Bednar, “Prepared to Obtain Every Needful Thing,” Ensign or Liahona, May 2019, 102).“Brothers and sisters, on very thin pages, thick with meaning, are some almost hidden scriptures. Hence we are urged to search, feast, and ponder. Especially, however, we should also do more of what Nephi did, namely “liken all scriptures unto [ourselves]” [Neal A.

For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.” 2 Nephi 32:3,5 Wherefore, I said unto you, feast upon the words of Christ; for behold, the words of Christ will tell you all things what ye should do….I say unto you that if ye will enter in by the way, and receive the Holy Ghost, it will show unto you all things what ye should do. 1 Cor. 10:13 There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it. 1 Ne. 10:19 For he that diligently seeketh shall find; and the mysteries of God shall be unfolded unto them, by the power of the Holy Ghost 3 Ne 13:33 But seek ye first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things shall be added unto you.

The Latter-day Saints seemed to have the upper hand for the time being, though they faced growing threats from all sides.  In the middle of this stalemate a strange letter arrived in Salt Lake City for Brigham Young.  It had come express from the town of Nephi, about 80 miles to the south.  The note, scrawled in a hurry, contained this cryptic message: “My dear sir, I trust you will recognize my handwriting. That I have made [the journey] in six weeks from New York may persuade you that I am on no fool's errand . . . . I send this to you by express, and urge you to postpone any military movement of importance until we meet and have a serious interview. If you cannot see the expediency of doing so on other grounds, I entreat it as a favor – in requital of the services which I rendered your people in their less prosperous days. I remain their friend, to serve them faithfully, Dr. Osborne.”  Two days later, pale and shaking with illness, the mysterious “Doctor Osborne” arrived in the city – it was none other than their friend, Colonel Thomas Kane, who could now dispense with his pseudonym.   He had indeed made the trip in 6 weeks, traveling night and day to reach Salt Lake City before the Latter-day Saints and the U.S. Army came to battle. But his message to the Saints -- to welcome the Army into the valley, and immediately send them food and supplies, turned out to be a hard sell. Some (like George A. Smith) scoffed at this idea.  How COL Kane managed to (as his wife Elizabeth would later write),  "turn a whole people's will and make them ask for peace in the hour of their triumph.” To learn more about the stories in this episode, please check out these (excellent!) sources:  David L.

Life is like a movie, full of suspense, thrills, and highs and lows.  As we near the close of 2022, have we taken the time to reflect on the year? If so, what parts do you see? Do we see good parts or bad parts? Our brains are naturally wired to look for problems and challenges to keep us safe and alive, but we can CHOOSE to see the good parts.  In the Book of Mormon, the family of Lehi went traveling in the wilderness and the sons each had a different version of the story.  Nephi's was full of abundance amidst the challenges, and Laman and Lemuel's was full of hardship and complaints.  Lehi said, "I choose the good part." We too can choose the good part. We can see the good in our circumstances and learn from the challenging times rather than close in and focus on them.  At this Christmas Season, let us reflect on the year and choose the good parts!

Utah, like much of the West, is facing a prolonged drought. And there's been a lot of discussion of water conservation in urban areas.

Nephi prophecies of the future of his people and their relationship to the gentiles.  He speaks of the fair and delightsome gentiles who will come to the promise land and will scatter his brethren as well as bring a book of the jews with them.  The gentiles are promised that they will have opportunity to receive the fullness of the gospel and have returned to them the plain and precious parts removed by the great and abominable church which was formed among the gentiles.  Christopher Columbus has long been thought to be a part of this prophecy but we examine another view and whether or not it may fit better.   We touch on the gospel coming back to Lehi's remnant in this land in purity and how the gentiles added to it almost immediately and perhaps the Lord prevented them to take their version of the gospel instead of the gospel contained in the Book of Mormon.You can read an article on Columbus we reference here:https://bookofmormonism.com/2022/10/1...Video podcast Book of Mormon study by Bob Bobit  notes for 1 Nephi ch3Scripture Search and Study http://www.restoredgospel.comThe Bible Project http://bibleproject.comContact us with comments or questions at:http://restoredgospelpodcast@gmail.comOr call us and leave a voice message at our podcast line816-379-6454

Pastor Seetoud of the Nakai District in the Khammouane Province was abducted, tortured, and killed while he was on his way to minister in a village 60 miles from his home.  His body was severely disfigured, his Bible was found near his body, and motorcycle just off the main road.  Morning Star News reports that two other Christians who had planned to join pastor for the meeting in the village said he was delayed because two unidentified officials were questioning him about his activities and reasons for travel to the town.  According to Open Doors, Laos is the 26th worst country for the persecution of Christians. Nigerian Muslims killed 4,000 Christians this year The most severe persecution in the world, by body count, is happening in Nigeria this year, reports The Christian Post. Thus far, in 2022, Islamic jihadist groups in Nigeria have killed at least 4,000 Christians and abducted more than 2,300, according to the International Society for Civil Liberties and Rule of Law  130,000 U.S. tech layoffs in 2022 so far Big layoffs have started in the United States.   Amazon has announced 10,000 layoffs to commence this week, amounting to 3% of its corporate workforce. Facebook is also shedding 11,000 jobs. That's about 13% of its workforce. Meantime, following Elon Musk's buyout, Twitter has laid off half its workforce of 8,000 employees along with 4,400 of its 5,500 contract employee base.   In 2022, Layoffs.fyi reports there have been 130,000 tech layoffs involving 788 tech companies.  Big Tech's persecution of conservative, Christian groups Napa Legal Institute has reported on Big Tech's de-platforming and other forms of persecution that have been let loose on Christians over the last few years. The report indicated 27 instances of high-profile Christian, pro-life, pro-family ministries persecuted by Amazon, Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and Tiktok, since 2020.   Psalm 37:1-3 comes to mind. “Do not fret because of evildoers, nor be envious of the workers of iniquity. For they shall soon be cut down like the grass, and wither as the green herb. Trust in the Lord, and do good; Dwell in the land, and feed on His faithfulness.” Republicans hold out hope for control of House While the Democrats retained control of the U.S. Senate in the 2022 elections, the House of Representatives is still up for grabs. Yesterday, the New York Times projected the Republicans would gain control by 1-3 Congressional seats. The two states where concerted ground was made for Republicans in the 2022 elections were Georgia and Florida. Meanwhile, the Democrats gained ground in Pennsylvania.  The Democrats also were successful at flipping state houses in Michigan, Minnesota, and Arizona. The Economist's surprise at mid-term election results The Economist magazine summarized the election this way. It said, “At the half-way mark between presidential elections, voters routinely give the incumbent party a beating. But, despite high inflation and low approval ratings for Joe Biden, the Republicans are unsure to flip the Senate and look likely to win control of the House with one of the smallest swings in years.” U.S. church attendance has dropped 15% Lifeway Research reports that U.S. church attendance has dropped off 15% in the last two years. The survey of 1,000 pastors found that Pentecostal churches and non-denominational churches grew the most over the last two years. The Reformed Presbyterian, Lutheran, Methodist, and Church of Christ denominations saw the least growth. United Methodist Church on the ropes The United Methodist denomination is bleeding churches.   Another 58 local churches in Louisiana have voted to leave the denomination for the matter of homosexual faux-marriage. Back in June, 70 churches in Georgia left, 30 more Methodist churches in North Carolina left, and over 100 congregations in Florida are moving in that direction. “The Chosen” TV series quoted Book of Mormon And finally, the joint Mormon and Christian evangelical-produced series, The Chosen, has come under fire over quotations from the Book of Mormon.   The problematic section comes in the preview for the third season of the TV series, quoting, in part, from the Mormon book, 3 Nephi 15:9, where the Mormon Jesus is quoted as saying, “I am the Law of Moses.” Listen to how it played out. JEWISH LEADER:  “Jesus, if you do not renounce your words, we will have no choice but to follow the law of Moses.” JESUS: “ I am the law of Moses!” Dallas Jenkins, the director, claimed the line was not a direct quote from the Book of Mormon, but written by the script writers, reports Crosswalk. 3 Nephi 15:9 says, “Behold, I am the law, and the light. Look unto me, and endure to the end, and ye shall live; for unto him that endureth to the end will I give eternal life.” In an article in a Mormon publication, called LDSLiving, Derral Eves, one of two Mormon executive producers of The Chosen, explained that he was aware that the show's creator, Dallas Jenkins, has received pushback for choosing to work with Mormons. In fact, Eves became emotional when talking about that opposition in a recent podcast interview. The trailer of The Chosen for Season 3 made it to first place on YouTube's trending chart during its first week out, reaching a total of 2.1 million views. The first two episodes of Season 3 will hit theaters this Thursday, November 18th.    The Scriptures tell us plainly: “The law was given through Moses, but grace and truth came through Jesus Christ.” (John 1:17) Close And that's The Worldview on this Tuesday, November 15th, in the year of our Lord 2022.  Subscribe by iTunes or email to our unique Christian newscast at www.TheWorldview.com.

Marriage. By Elder Boyd K. Packer. ACU Sunday Series. Of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles https://www.churchofjesuschrist.org/study/general-conference/1981/04/marriage?lang=eng The prophet Jacob foretold the destruction of a people because they were blind to ordinary things, “which blindness,” he said, “came by looking beyond the mark.” (Jacob 4:14.) We often seek for things we cannot seem to find when they are within easy reach—ordinary, obvious things. I wish to talk about an ordinary word. I have tried for months—really tried—to find some way to hold this word up in such a way that you would be very impressed with what it means. The word is marriage. I have wished that I could set before you a finely carved chest, placing it where the light is just right. I would carefully unlatch it and reverently uncover the word—marriage. Perhaps then you would see that it is priceless! I cannot show it to you that way, so I will do the best I can using other ordinary words. It is my purpose to endorse and to favor, to encourage and defend marriage. Many regard it nowadays as being, at best, semiprecious, and by some it is thought to be worth nothing at all. I have seen and heard, as you have seen and heard, the signals all about us, carefully orchestrated to convince us that marriage is out of date and in the way. There is a practice, now quite prevalent, for unmarried couples to live together, a counterfeit of marriage. They suppose that they shall have all that marriage can offer without the obligations connected with it. They are wrong! However much they hope to find in a relationship of that kind, they will lose more. Living together without marriage destroys something inside all who participate. Virtue, self-esteem, and refinement of character wither away. Claiming that it will not happen does not prevent the loss; and these virtues, once lost, are not easily reclaimed. To suppose that one day they may nonchalantly change their habits and immediately claim all that might have been theirs had they not made a mockery of marriage is to suppose something that will not be. One day, when they come to themselves, they will reap disappointment. One cannot degrade marriage without tarnishing other words as well, such words as boy, girl, manhood, womanhood, husband, wife, father, mother, baby, children, family, home. Such words as unselfishness and sacrifice will then be tossed aside. Then self-respect will fade and love itself will not want to stay. If you have been tempted to enter such a relationship or if you now live with another without marriage, leave! Withdraw from it! Run away from it! Do not continue with it! Or, if you can, make a marriage out of it. Even a rickety marriage will serve good purpose as long as two people struggle to keep it from falling down around them. And now a word of warning. One who destroys a marriage takes upon himself a very great responsibility indeed. Marriage is sacred! To willfully destroy a marriage, either your own or that of another couple, is to offend our God. Such a thing will not be lightly considered in the judgments of the Almighty and in the eternal scheme of things will not easily be forgiven. Do not threaten nor break up a marriage. Do not translate some disenchantment with your own marriage partner or an attraction for someone else into justification for any conduct that would destroy a marriage. This monumental transgression frequently places heavy burdens upon little children. They do not understand the selfish yearnings of unhappy adults who are willing to buy their own satisfaction at the expense of the innocent. God Himself decreed that the physical expression of love, that union of male and female which has power to generate life, is authorized only in marriage. Marriage is the shelter where families are created. That society which puts low value on marriage sows the wind and, in time, will reap the whirlwind—and thereafter, unless they repent, bring upon themselves a holocaust! Some think that every marriage must expect to end in unhappiness and divorce, with the hopes and dreams predestined to end in a broken, sad wreck of things. Some marriages do bend, and some will break, but we must not, because of this, lose faith in marriage nor become afraid of it. Broken marriages are not typical. Remember that trouble attracts attention! We travel the highway with thousands of cars moving in either direction without paying much attention to any of them. But should an accident occur, we notice immediately. If it happens again, we get the false impression that no one can go safely down the road. One accident may make the front page, while a hundred million cars that safely pass are not regarded as worth mentioning. Writers think that a happy, stable marriage does not have the dramatic appeal, the conflict worth featuring in a book or a play or a film. Therefore, we constantly hear about the ruined ones and we lose our perspective. I believe in marriage. I believe it to be the ideal pattern for human living. I know it to be ordained of God. The restraints relating to it were designed to protect our happiness. I do not know of any better time in all of the history of the world for a young couple who are of age and prepared and who are in love to think of marriage. There is no better time because it is your time. I know that these are very troubled times. Troubles like we have now are very hard on marriages. Do not lose faith in marriage. Not even if you have been through the unhappiness of a divorce and are surrounded with pieces of a marriage that has fallen apart. If you have honored your vows and your partner did not do so, remember God is watching over us. One day, after all of the tomorrows have passed, there will be recompense. Those who have been moral and faithful to their covenants will be happy and those who have not will be otherwise. Some marriages have broken up in spite of all that one partner could do to hold the marriage together. While there may be faults on both sides, I do not condemn the innocent one who suffers in spite of all that was desired and done to save the marriage. And to you I say, do not lose faith in marriage itself. Do not let your disappointment leave you bitter or cynical or justify any conduct that is unworthy. If you have had no opportunity for marriage or if you have lost your companion in death, keep your faith in marriage. Some years ago an associate of mine lost his beloved wife. She died after a lingering illness, and he watched in helpless agony as the doctors withdrew all hope. One day near the end she told him that when she was gone she wanted him to marry again and he was not to wait too long a time. He protested! The children were nearly grown and he would go the rest of the way alone. She turned away and wept and said, “Have I been such a failure that after all our years together you would rather go unmarried? Have I been such a failure?” In due time there came another, and their life together has reaffirmed his faith in marriage. And I have the feeling that his first beloved wife is deeply grateful to the second one, who filled the place that she could not keep. Marriage is yet safe, with all its sweet fulfillment, with all its joy and love. In marriage all of the worthy yearnings of the human soul, all that is physical and emotional and spiritual, can be fulfilled. Marriage is not without trials of many kinds. These tests forge virtue and strength. The tempering that comes in marriage and family life produces men and women who will someday be exalted. God has ordained that life should have its beginning within the protecting shelter of marriage, conceived in a consummate expression of love and nurtured and fostered with that deeper love which is accompanied always by sacrifice. Marriage offers fulfillment all the way through life—in youth and young love, the wedding and on the honeymoon, with the coming of little children and the nurturing of them. Then come the golden years when young ones leave the nest to build one of their own. The cycle then repeats itself, as God has decreed it should. There is another dimension to marriage that we know of in the Church. It came by revelation. This glorious, supernal truth teaches us that marriage is meant to be eternal. There are covenants we can make if we are willing, and bounds we can seal if we are worthy, that will keep marriage safe and intact beyond the veil of death. The Lord has declared, “For behold, this is my work and my glory—to bring to pass the immortality and eternal life of man.” (Moses 1:39.) The ultimate end of all activity in the Church is that a man and his wife and their children can be happy at home and that the family can continue through eternity. All Christian doctrine is formulated to protect the individual, the home, and the family. These lines express something of the place of marriage in the eternal progress of man: We have within a burning flame, A light to kindle lights, The sacred fire of life itself, Which if misused ignites A smold'ring, suffocating cloud Of sorrow and distress. When used by law this power brings forth A life, a family, happiness. Temptors from the darkest realm Seek to pervert this power In acts of wickedness and waste Until there comes the hour Of judgment and of recompense, When bitter tears are shed O'er power once held to foster life That now is gone and dead. I know this power to be a key, A very key to God's own plan Which brings to pass eternal life And immortality for man. And marriage is the crucible Where elements of life combine, Where mortal temples are conceived Within that plan divine. Then spirit offspring of our God Can come through mortal birth To have a choice, to face the test— The purpose of our stay on earth. Here good and evil stand alike Before decision's sovereign nod. Those who elect the righteous path Will part the veil, return to God. A gift from God, the plan provides That mortal beings in humble strait Be given power, supernal power, To share their love and help create A living child, a living soul, Image of man, and of Deity. How we regard this sacred gift Will fix our course, our destiny! Eternal love, eternal marriage, eternal increase! This ideal, which is new to many, when thoughtfully considered, can keep a marriage strong and safe. No relationship has more potential to exalt a man and a woman than the marriage covenant. No obligation in society or in the Church supersedes it in importance. I thank God for marriage. I thank God for temples. I thank God for the glorious sealing power, that power which transcends all that we have been given, through which our marriages may become eternal. May we be worthy of this sacred gift, I pray in the name of Jesus Christ, amen.   EFY Medley: As Sisters in Zion & We'll Bring the World His Truth Song by Michael R. Hicks "As sisters in Zion, we'll all work together; The blessings of God on our labors we'll seek. We'll build up His kingdom with earnest endeavor; We'll comfort the weary and strengthen the weak." "We are daughters of our Heavenly Father Who loves us, and we love Him, yes, we love Him." "As sisters in Zion. As daughters of God." "We have been born, as Nephi of old, To goodly parents who loved the Lord. We have been taught, and we understand, That we must do as the Lord commands. We are as the army of Helaman. We have been taught in our youth. And we will be the Lord's missionaries To bring the world His truth." "We are as the army of Helaman. We have been taught in our youth. And we will be the Lord's missionaries To bring the world His truth." "As sisters in Zion." "A marked generation." "As children of God."

October 3-9 Isn't it amazing that Isaiah's prophecies date back more than 2,700 years and they are so completely applicable today! No wonder the Lord Jesus Christ commanded the Nephites and the Lamanites: "And now, behold, I say unto you, that ye ought to search these things. Yea, a commandment I give unto you that ye search these things diligently; for great are the words of Isaiah. For surely he spake as touching all things concerning my people which are of the house of Israel…" (3 Nephi 23:1-2). Isaiah is speaking to us today and let's see what he has to say about fasting, keeping the Sabbath Day holy and the last days we are in.
