Continued from last week... News to follow!!

Where did I come from?
Before we where born, we all lived as spirit children with God. We wanted to get a body, and to become like Him. Jesus Christ proposed a plan that would allow us to grow, learn and develop. His plan allowed us to be tried and tempted, to choose for ourselves. All those on earth today have already chosen to follow Jesus Christ. We knew some of the challenges we as individuals would face.Some of the mistakes we might make. We all used His greatest gift - Agency - and followed Jesus Christ!

Why am I here?
You don't remember volunteering? Exactly! Read Job 38:7!!
So, we passed through something called the veil, so we have forgotten. Remember, we have to choose, and act on faith! By coming to earth we hoped for 3 key things!
1 A body!
2. Family
3. Knowledge!
These 3 things are why we came here, why we are tried and tested here. This is a probationary, a prepartory state.

What happens after I die?
After we all die, we go to the Spirit World. We continue to grow and learn, to try and progress. In the spirit world those who have never heard of the gospel, or even heard of Jesus Christ, are taught. Everyone who has not yet accepted the Gospel of Jesus Christ, is given another opportunity to accept it. How perfect is that? He really wants us to have every opportunity to return to Him. So after Jesus Christ comes again, we will all be ressurrected. It is a free gift to all those who lived on the earth. The spirits are reunited to a perfected body. Alma 11:44!! Remember 2 weeks ago I talked about Jesus being our advocate? We stand and give account before our father, with Jesus Christ as our loving advocate. We all shall hopefully return to live eternally in His presence. With our families, thanks to the blessings of the Temple. A lot of non-members wonder what happens in there, and it is truly a wonderful place! A place where we can learn, and a place where we can be sealed to our families for time, and all eternity! Alma 34:33...
Something that is important is that is really does all go back to Adam and Eve! If you can get your family history back to them, and it is possible, then we are all sealed together. We are truly all children of God, of heavenly parents.

Hymn 292 - O My Father.
Verse 3 - . I had learned to call thee Father,
Thru thy Spirit from on high,
But, until the key of knowledge
Was restored, I knew not why.
In the heav'ns are parents single?
No, the thought makes reason stare!
Truth is reason; truth eternal
Tells me I've a mother there.

Well, I know when I return to live with my Heavenly Father, I will be with all my family, all of you! I have this knowledge, because, that is the promise when we are covenant keepers!

The Gospel has so much for us to learn, so many blessings promised! Ther are ours to recieve!
Verse 4 - When I leave this frail existence,
When I lay this mortal by,
Father, Mother, may I meet you
In your royal courts on high?
Then, at length, when I've completed
All you sent me forth to do,
With your mutual approbation
Let me come and dwell with you.
I have made that my ultimate goal, His presence is what I am seeking! 

Decide what blessings you wish to receive, then think about how you can put yourself in a place to recieve them!

Let Him bless you!!
