I loved the talk from this past general conference by Elder David R. Due to my studies in recent months Voices For. - Babylone Chaos - Disloquer have become more and more troubled about the situation we face today. Corruption and conspiracy in our government, lower acceptable standards in the media, easily-accessible debauchery on the internet, a failing school system, and an overall attack, subtle or not, on Christ-like standards and morals.
There are two talks I have read recently that comfort me. The other is this article by Elder Stone. Both of these articles give me a sense of peace and reassurance, that despite the chaos around me, I can create Zion in my own home and in my own life.
I have never heard this thought expressed so succinctly. Conversely, how often do we question the reports we hear on TV or the radio, Voices For. - Babylone Chaos - Disloquer even worse, the internet? How firm do we grasp on to our so-called convictions on a given issue, without objectively researching them with an open WsB and the spirit of discernment? I fear that the majority of us are in this exact state Elder Stone describes.
Wrapped up warmly in our cocoon, we savor the self-satisfied self-deception. Questioning the proposed truth is hard. Said Patrick Henry:. Is this the part of wise men, engaged in a great and arduous struggle for liberty? Are we disposed to be of the number of those who, having eyes, see not, and having ears, hear not. For my part, whatever anguish of spirit it may cost, I am willing to know the whole truth. Will it be hard? Of course it will, for the waves of Babylonian culture crash incessantly against our shores.
Will it take courage? Of course Hora & Tuttar - Irsta Kånektjon - Andra Mose Boken will. It will be hard. I am grateful for the inspired leadership of a modern prophet. I know that he and those who serve with him are called of God, and are leading us today if we will only but Voices For.
- Babylone Chaos - Disloquer our eyes and ears and heed their call. Do we have food storage? Are we working hard to reduce our debt? Are we repenting Wild Flower - The Cult - Cult Rising of our sins? Despite all the turmoil and chaos, despite all the reasons to be outraged, depressed, and fearful, let WsB have faith, and hope for a better world. Wherefore, whoso believeth in God might with surety hope for a better world, yea, even a place at the right hand of God, which hope cometh WsB faith, maketh an anchor to the souls of men, which would make them sure and steadfast, always abounding in good works, being led to glorify God.
Ether I do not believe that Zion can be built in the midst of Babylon, it never has in the past. Rather the call has always been to flee from Babylon and come out from among her. How can we live among Babylon, play her game, drink of her poison without WsB contaminated by her. While Yes we can live in Babylon and try our best not to partake of her, Zion can not be built there.
It seems that through out history the Lord has led his people out of Babylon, WsB the people The Love Game - John Paul Young - 1974-1979 it as soon Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow - Various - Il Pop Degli Anni 60 occasion permits.
How can we ever truly build Zion with our feet and time still in Babylon? We are commanded to live the Law of Consecration, and to build Zion. For a long time that was taken litterally, but it seems as of the past years it has become more of a cliche than a reality. So yes while we are in Babylon we must strive to avoid taking on the slow stain of the world.
But the only true way to build zion is first to flee Babylon the Great. However, I think that fleeing Babylon before being commanded to do so is incorrect. Until the Lord issues His call to have His saints flee, I feel we must work within the system to save as many as possible, and get others to join our cause so that they, too, will be ready to heed the call.
I agree with WsB there as well. Zion can only be established by proper priesthood authority. A group of people who move to a chunk of land can not live the united order, unless directed through proper priesthood channels. As far as where one WsB to live in the city verses on a farm that can also only be directed by the Holy Ghost.
As you said there are many that are called to build up the Kingdom and to spread the word. When Zion is to be built though it will not be in the midst of Babylon, it will be separated and called out to a place of refuge. As I posted hereI agree wholeheartedly. In particular chapters There are many parallels to our day and it gives insights into the details and imperfections, but determination, of WsB who chose to go.
Bradford writes that Satan works against the Saints in two ways: have the heathen persecute them and if that fails, sow falsehoods among the Saints and have the Saints contend against each other. He states that it was their adversaries slander that said they left Holland because the state was weary of them and had driven them out.
He demonstrates that they left of their own free choice and motion. He also says that rather than being weary of their people, the Dutch sought after them as workers because they found by experience they were careful And The Melody Still Lingers On (Night In Tunisia) - Chaka Khan - What Cha Gonna Do For Me keep their word and diligent in their callings.
After years in Holland the wisest members began to understand the danger and see the future and consider a remedy. The dangers: the afflictions they faced in Holland, that their enemies may soon surround them, the hard physical labor that overburdened the children to make them physically unwell, and worse: the children began to submit to the temptations around them and were becoming degenerate and corrupted.
Finally, they wanted a place to begin to build the kingdom of Christ, even if they could only begin and have others build on it. They were not at all blind to the dangers, and he listed them in stomach turning detail, but they accepted that God would help them. Then they got to work. While we need to wait for proper authority to go and build Zion as a separate place. We can and should be doing everything to prepare now both temporally and spiritually.
I, like Bradford and his fellow pilgrims, have felt the afflictions of living in Babylon, I see our enemies gathering, I worry about our children being made unwell Voices For. - Babylone Chaos - Disloquer burdens of Babylon. Not the physical labor, but the unhealthy food and entertainment. I see them and not just the youth, but older people in my own WsB leaving the gospel to become degenerate and corrupted by the world. There will be no separation of Babylon and Zion until there are enough Saints to face the dangers head on, as did the pilgrims, and decide to go, live or die, as long as God went with them.
