Study by Faith


“Another interesting thing, an insight into the personality of our God, when he creates an earth, he provides on it all the evidence for anything you want to believe. This is a testing ground; the first principle of the gospel is faith. The first law is obedience. Those two go hand in hand; what God has done is provide evidence for the TEMPORAL EYE, as well as the EYE OF FAITH. Certain are pleasing to the carnal mind. Then there is evidence, often the same evidence, just interpreted differently, for the eye of faith. Both eyes can use the same evidence to make their point. Both can use the same thing for their foundation. One of two ways. One is to hearken to the voice of God and hearken unto him, or you are in the rejection-substitution mode and you will leave him out and move in the opposite direction.” D&C 124:39

39 Therefore, verily I say unto you, that your anointings, and your washings, and your baptisms for the dead, and your solemn assemblies, and your memorials for your sacrifices by the Sons of Levi, and for your oracles in your most holy places…”

“Oracles are revelations in holy places when you hear conversations take place, where you should be paying attention to the Lord. And one of the things that come to my mind, is when Satan is tempting Eve to go contrary to the laws of God. Satan is very quick to show his basic approach. “I have said nothing about Father.” His approach to man is that you deal with earth as if there is no God. That is Satan’s basic approach. You can learn the system with God in it, or not. That is your basic decision in life. They will eventually come at odds with each other, for the theories of men generally conflict with the laws of God. At that point, you have to deal with that yourself. God has put evidence there for any person to believe what they want.”

“God isn’t worried about us learning concerning the earth. He wants us under it, on it, above it, in the oceans, anywhere we want to search; with just one caution. WHATEVER YOU STUDY, STUDY IT BY FAITH.”
