A Testimony

My message to all of you, my family and friends, today is simple. It does not come from me but I have felt very much impressed by the Lord to give a message from Him. "Come Unto Christ". He is coming, this has been testified by the Holy Ghost to me.

God has sent an obscure messenger (much like John the Baptist in his day, Abinadi and Samuel the Lamanite in the Book of Mormon and many, many others) to preach repentance and preserving the Restoration given by the Prophet Joseph Smith. "Preserving the Restoration" by Denver C Snuffer, Jr. He has been sent by God to bring us back to the Restoration to remind us to "Come Unto Christ". We must understand and live the Doctrine of Christ (2 Nephi 31 & 3 Nephi 11) We must have faith, but that requires a true understanding of what that is and how it works. (My recommendation is the Lectures of Faith which was given through Joseph Smith by God, a copy of the original not tampered with 1835 version, you can get that on Amazon. It's under the title "Joseph Smith Begins His Work" by Wilford C Wood. The Lectures of Faith are scripture, sustained and canonized by the early LDS church in 1835). It is no longer a part of the Doctrine and Covenants but it should be. We must repent which requires us to remember what was given to Joseph Smith by God. God vouched for Joseph Smith in his day and God vouches for him still today.

We must turn to Christ and seek His face. D&C 93:1 "Verily, thus saith the Lord: It shall come to pass that every soul who forsaketh his sins and cometh unto me, and calleth on my name, and obeyeth my voice, and keepeth my commandments, shall see my face and know that I am;" this is not hypothetical, this is literal. We must be baptized. God has given a covenant and it is through baptism that we accept this covenant. Baptism is not a one time deal. When God begins something anew we accept it by being baptized. He has begun something anew will you accept it?

The Book of Mormon is God's word. We have taken it lightly and are under condemnation. Let us study it for the treasure that it holds. We must seek the mysteries of God held within that sacred record, it tells us over and over to "Come to Christ". Let's heed the words within the Book of Mormon given by God's messengers who have been in His presence and remember the covenant God has made to His people.
Have faith, repent, be baptized, implement the Doctrine of Christ. These things will bring us to Christ and we will stand in the day He comes.

Moroni 10:4 "And when ye shall receive these things, I would exhort you that ye would ask God, the Eternal Father, in the name of Christ, if these things are not true; and if ye shall ask with a sincere heart, with real intent, having faith in Christ, he will manifest the truth of it unto you, by the power of the Holy Ghost.
5And by the power of the Holy Ghost ye may know the truth of all things."

This is my testimony to you in love and through God's Holy Spirit, in the name of Jesus Christ, amen.
