Scripture reading: Jacob 3

"O ye that are pure in heart, lift up your heads and receive the pleasing word of God, and feast upon his love; for ye may, if your mind are firm, forever. But, wo, wo, unto you that are not pure in heart; that are filthy this day before God; for except ye shall repent, the land is cursed for your sakes; and the Lamanites, which are not filthy like unto you, (nevertheless, they are cursed with a sore cursing) shall scourge you even unto destruction. And the time speedily cometh that except ye repent, they shall possess the land of your inheritance, and the Lord God will lead away the righteous out from among you.”

- Jacob 3 (2-4)

Scripture reading: Book of Jeraneck 6:6

“I cry unto you as your servant, and as thy servant and thy Prophet, I bless this land in thy name, for we have been faithful and we have erected many stone monuments unto thee, just as you have commanded us to do. And we have done this not for our own edification but for yours, Oh, Lord, and we have done this so that those that follow after us will know that we were the People of Light and that we followed thy teachings and thy principles and I ask, Oh, Lord and Saviour, that you will guide us on our journey, that you will guide us across the seas to our new land, that you have promised us. “

Head of Latter Day Church of Jesus Christ Calls for End of Rioting, Prayer for Victims

Prophet, Seer and Revelator of the Latter Day Church of Jesus Christ, Matthew Gill, has appealed for calm in London and other cities affected by the rioting and violence of recent days.

His message follows:

"Pillaging and violence are before us, and strife and contention arise.

The violence, destruction of property and disregard for civil society we have witnessed in recent days is truly shocking to all men and women of conscience throughout the land.

I call on all who cherish and labour for peace should pray for those effected by this outburst of violence, including those who have lost their livelihoods, their businesses and their homes.

I share the vision of the Prophet Isaiah, who prayed that, "violence shall no more be heard in the land, wasting nor destruction within thy borders." (Is. 60:18)

Those who riot should turn towards God with peace, humility and repentance, for “from violence he redeems their life.” (Ps. 72:14)

But also, those who commit violence against others should know that the Lord shall repay them “according to the works of their own hands.” (Jer. 25:14) and shall "punish the wicked for their iniquity" and "cause the arrogance of the proud to cease." (Is. 13:11.)

"We believe that all men are bound to sustain and uphold the respective governments in which they reside while protected in their inherent and inalienable rights by the laws of such governments," wrote the Prophet Joseph Smith, "and that sedition and rebellion are unbecoming every citizen thus protected, and should be punished accordingly." (Doctrine & Covenants, section 102, 1835 edition.)

It is the hope and prayer of myself and of the members of the Latter Day Church of Jesus Christ that peace shall reign in the land, and that all will love one another, as the Lord loves us. And that all peoples shall, in the words of the Apostle Paul, "be of one mind, live in peace; and the God of love and peace shall be with you."

Peace be to you all,
Matthew Gill
