False Prophets, False Priests, and False Teachers

There are many who claim to speak for the Lord in these the last days. Many who take upon them His name, yet He doesn’t claim them. The Lord gave us a measurement to test those who claim such high regard. 15 ¶Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they… Read More »

Small Tokens

I have realized that it’s a process. Think of the tokens in the temple. Small touches, that get stronger and more pronounced as you move along. Think of the exchange of a token or coin. You feel a small impression in your hand from the token, but not necessarily from the person giving you the… Read More »

An Ensign to the Nations

The Prophet Isaiah prophesied that in the Last Days the Lord would set up an “Ensign to the Nations.” I’ve always wondered what this Ensign would be. I think the prophet Nephi knew what it was and he told us using plainness. “And he will lift up an aensign to the nations from far, and… Read More »
