Title: Moses 1

Moses 1

Missionary Work?
Im not saying it is, but
  • AP
  • Archaeologist William Saturno said Tuesday he was
    awe-struck when he uncovered a Maya mural not
    seen for nearly two millennia.
  • Discovered at the San Bartolo site in Guatemala,
    the mural covers the west wall of a room attached
    to a pyramid, Saturno said at a briefing.
  • In brilliant color, the mural tells the Maya
    story of creation, he said. It was painted about
    100 B.C
  • Another section shows the corn god crowning
    himself king upon a wooden scaffold, and the
    final section shows a historic coronation of a
    Maya king.
  • Mosiah 130 B.C.
  • 7 For the multitude being so great that king
    Benjamin could not teach them all within the
    walls of the temple, therefore he caused a tower
    to be erected, that thereby his people might hear
    the words which he should speak unto them.

Heber C. Kimball to Saints in the Nauvoo Temple
  • You can not sin so cheap no more.

The Old Testament
  • Reasons NOT to study Old Testament
  • Reasons TO Study Old Testament

Brigham Young " . . . The Bible, when it is
understood, is one of the simplest books in the
world, for, as far as it is translated correctly,
it is nothing but the truth, and in truth there
is no mystery save to the ignorant."
They the sons of Mosiah had waxed strong in
the knowledge of the truth for they were men of
a sound understanding and they had searched the
scriptures diligently, that they might know the
word of God." What Scriptures?
Moses 1
Joseph Smith DC 19 10 For, behold, the mystery
of godliness, how great is it! For, behold, I am
endless, DC 7612 By the power of the Spirit
our eyes were opened so as to see and
understand the things of God 50 And again we
bear record concerning them who shall come forth
in the resurrection of the just
Moses 3 And God spake unto Moses, saying Behold,
I am the Lord God Almighty, and Endless is my
name 4 I will show thee the workmanship of
mine hands 8 And it came to pass that Moses
looked, and beheld the world upon which he was
created and all the children of men which are,
and which were created
Enoch Moses 7 35 Behold, I am God Man of
Holiness is my name Man of Counsel is my name
and Endless and Eternal is my name 32 The Lord
said unto Enoch Behold these thy brethren they
are the workmanship of mine own hands
Elder Jeffrey Holland
  • But Moses' message to you today is,
    "Don't let your guard down." Don't assume that a
    great revelation, some marvelous illuminating
    moment, or the opening of an inspired path is the
    end of it. Remember, it isn't over until it's
  • What happened to Moses next, after his revelatory
    moment, would be ludicrous if it were not so
    dangerous and so absolutely true to form. In an
    effort to continue his opposition, in his
    unfailing effort to get his licks in later if not
    sooner, Lucifer appeared and shouted in equal
    portions of anger and petulance after God had
    revealed himself to the prophet, (Cast Not Away
    Therefore Your Confidence, BYU Devotional, 1999)

Moses 1
  • 13 Moses looked upon Satan and said Who art
    thou? . . . where is thy glory, that I should
    worship thee?
  • For behold, I could not look upon God, except his
    glory should come upon me. . . . But I can look
    upon thee in the natural man. . . .
  • . . . Where is thy glory, for it is darkness unto
    me? And I can judge between thee and God. . . .
  • Get thee hence, Satan deceive me not.
  • And now, when Moses had said these words, Satan
    cried with a loud voice, and ranted upon the
    earth, and commanded, saying I am the Only
    Begotten, worship me.
  • And it came to pass that Moses began to fear
    exceedingly and as he began to fear, he saw the
    bitterness of hell. Nevertheless, calling upon
    God the very phrase used by Joseph Smith, he
    received strength

Elder Holland Cont
  • I wish to encourage every one
    of you today regarding opposition that so
    often comes after enlightened decisions have been
    made, after moments of revelation and conviction
    have given us a peace and an assurance we thought
    we would never lose.
  • In his letter to the Hebrews, the Apostle Paul
    was trying to encourage new members who had just
    joined the Church, who undoubtedly had had
    spiritual experiences and had received the pure
    light of testimony, only to discover that not
    only had their troubles not ended, but that some
    of them had only begun.

  • When you are trying to get a answer to prayer,
    what is the difference between a stupid (stuper)
    of thought and just plain fear about a decision?

Now, the great verse
  • For behold, this is my work and my glory, to
    bring to pass the immortality and eternal life of
    man. (Moses 139)
  • Question what question from Moses prompted this
    wonderful statement from the Lord?

The Question?
  • 30 And it came to pass that Moses called upon
    God, saying Tell me, I pray thee, why these
    things are so, and by what thou madest them?
  • 40 And now, Moses, my son, I will speak unto thee
    concerning this earth upon which thou standest
    and thou shalt write the things which I shall
  • 41 And in a day when the children of men shall
    esteem my words as naught and take many of them
    from the book which thou shalt write, behold, I
    will raise up another like unto thee and they
    shall be had again among the children of
    menamong as many as shall believe

Speaking of Moses 139
  • Neal A. Maxwell
  • "Fortunately, God
    is preoccupied
    with His children.
    We (and what
    we may become) are His work and glory. All that
    He does is for our benefit.
  • As George MacDonald said of God, 'He lays no
    plans irrespective of His children.'

President Gordon B. Hinckley
  • "We are here to assist our Father in His work
    and His glory, 'to bring to pass the immortality
    and eternal life of man' (Moses 139).
  • Your obligation is as serious in your sphere of
    responsibility as is my obligation in my sphere.
    No calling in this church is small or of little
    consequence. All of us in the pursuit of our duty
    touch the lives of others.
