Our Fisrt Sacrament of the New Year
The Latter Day Church of Christ held its first Sacrament meeting of the New Year on Sunday the 7th. All that were present agreed that it was good to be back after the Christmas break. It felt good to be back in the warmth and fellowship of the saints and to be able to sit and hear the words of a living Prophet being spoken once again.
A lot happened over the Christmas break. Not only has the Book of Jeraneck being completed but the Prophet Matthew Philip Gill has also received another revelation from our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. These points of interest were the main topics for our Sunday service just gone. We heard from our Prophet about the efforts we must take to push the work forward he said “We have been given a great responsibility. It is up to us to guard that responsibility and to use it well. We can’t rely on the Saviour to do all this work for us, we have to do our part, once we have done that then he will do the rest. Remember with such a great work comes great responsibility. Let us go forward in to 2007 with a mission to bring more souls unto Christ and to bring to those should knowledge of the Book of Jeraneck and all the other great works of scripture. I know that if we do this the lord will bless us with great blessings”
All agreed that is was a fantastic meeting with alot of wonderful spiritual experiences. We as a church have come under some persecution as of late, even over the Christmas season. We would like to offer our love to those people and welcome them to our service to hear the words of a living Prophet and feel the love of the Saviour. We gather great strength from the words of our first prophet Joseph smith who said:
I have no enemies but for the truth's sake. I have no desire but to do all men good. I feel to pray for all men. We don't ask any people to throw away any good they have got; we only ask them to come and get more. What if all the world should embrace this gospel? They would see eye to eye, and the blessings of God would be poured out upon the people, which is the desire of my whole soul. We feel disposed to go forward and unite our energies for the up building of the Kingdom, and established the Priesthood in their fullness and glory. The work which has to be accomplished in the last days is one of vast importance, and will call into action the energy, skill, talent, and ability of the Saints, so that it may roll forth with that glory and majesty described by the prophet Daniel and will consequently require the concentration of the Saints, to accomplish works of such magnitude and grandeur. (Joseph Smith)
We are grateful for the Prophet Joseph Smith who left us these words for his strength and conviction of truth are what empowers us today. We ask all those who wish to come and worship with us to do so. We have nothing to hide we wish to share all we have with who ever shall seek us out. God bless you in the coming week
