September Australian Restoration News

September Australian Restoration News
From: Noel


Zion the beautiful beckons us on. ++++++++++


Around and about the Centre Place by High Priest Paul Gage, Independence, Missouri.

September greetings to all the lovely Saints, down under. A team of four or five men will be joining you from September 23-October 19. We will be visiting as many Saints as possible and attending the reunion. All of us are very excited about coming to Australia. Elder Jack Hagensen and I have been to Australia before, but it will be a new experience for Elders Leo Carroll and Tom Rindels. There may possibly be another man with us, if so, it will be Deacon Jacob Roberts. Leo, Jacob, and I are from the Waldo Avenue RB, Jack attends Living Hope RB in Independence, MO and Tom is from Missionary RB near Independence, MO.

The Conference of Restoration Elders (CRE) continues to support missionary work around the world and the Lord is opening new doors quite frequently. You will be able to read dynamic reports from Africa, Nepal, and the Philippines in the next issue of Tidings of Zion, which hopefully will be published in mid-September. As you may know, the team coming to Australia in September will represent the South East Asia and Australia Ministries Board, (SEAAM) of which brother Jack and I are members.

The Pastors of Zion (POZ) maintains an effort to bring the branches and Saints of the Centre Place together for worship. The annual Sunday Evening Preaching Series begin June 12 and concluded on August 21, 2016 with "Youth Service." Youth who attended the many camps came together to share in music and testimony.

The summer camp and reunion schedule has been completed and now attention will be given to fall retreats. There will be numerous retreats for youth of most ages, as well as the annual CRE Priesthood trip to Kirtland on September 17-18, 2016, and the CRE Women's Council Fall retreat in September. Retreats will also be held in other parts of the country.

Center Place Restoration School, (CPRS) students returned to school on August 23 to begin the 25th year of operation. The prayers of all the Saints are requested to ensure another successful year. Elder John Larson will be in his second year as the school administrator.

One of our camp songs is called, "Awesome God." It speaks of our God who reigns in Heaven above, with wisdom, power, and love, which makes Him an "Awesome God." One verse however, says, “The Lord wasn't kidding when He kicked them out of Eden, it wasn't for no reason that He shed His blood”. His return is very close, so we better be believing that OUR GOD IS AN AWESOME GOD! While God is certainly a God of might, power, wisdom, love, grace, mercy, etc. He is also a God of judgment and the time will come for each of us when we stand before Him to be judged. On Sunday, August 14, 2016, three elders in three different branches mentioned the parable of the "Ten Virgins," as found in Matthew 25. This parable, like all of the parables Jesus shared is so much more than just a "good story." They are scriptural and therefore Divine principles of truth. It is not a "and they lived happily ever after" ending for five of the virgins who were foolish, because Jesus told them, in the Inspired Version, "You never knew Me!"

What crushing and sad words those will be to those to whom they are spoken by Jesus. They did not have the oil required to keep their lamps burning. That oil is defined in D&C 45:10 b. It would be good for all of us to read all of section 45. Alma, in the Book of Mormon gives advice to his three sons in chapters 17-19 and reminds them that: 1. God's laws are unalterable, 2. The way (Jesus) is prepared, and 3. There is no other way or name by which we can enter God's Kingdom. Refresh your memory of this wise counsel from a loving parent who had experienced the bitter and the sweet and take it to heart and share it will all who will listen. Alma also told Corianton, in 19:71-72, to not risk one more offense against God. May we make sure we have a sufficient supply of the oil that will make it possible for us to enter into the wedding feast of the Bridegroom, who is Jesus Christ.


Riches from the Scriptures Volome 2 by Elder Neil Kerswell


Eternal Judgement put simply is God’s Judgement just as Eternal punishment is God’s Punishment.

[Sec 18:1d] And surely every man must repent or suffer, for I God am endless; wherefore, I revoke not the judgments which I shall pass, but woes shall go forth, weeping, wailing, and gnashing of teeth;
[Sec 18:1e] yea, to those who are found on my left hand; nevertheless, it is not written that there shall be no end to this torment; but it is written endless torment.
[Sec 18:2a] Again, it is written eternal damnation; wherefore it is more express than other scriptures, that it might work upon the hearts of the children of men, altogether for my name's glory;
[Sec 18:2b] wherefore, I will explain unto you this mystery, for it is meet unto you to know even as mine apostles.
[Sec 18:2c] I speak unto you that are chosen in this thing, even as one, that you may enter into my rest; for, behold, the mystery of godliness, how great is it?
[Sec 18:2d] For, behold, I am endless, and the punishment which is given from my hand is endless punishment, for Endless is my name; wherefore--
[Sec 18:2e] Eternal punishment is God's punishment. Endless punishment is God's punishment.
[Sec 18:2f] Wherefore, I command you to repent, and keep the commandments which you have received by the hand of my servant Joseph Smith, Jr., in my name;
[Sec 18:2g] and it is by my almighty power that you have received them; therefore I command you to repent--repent, lest I smite you by the rod of my mouth, and by my wrath, and by my anger, and your sufferings be sore--how sore you know not! how exquisite you know not! yea, how hard to bear you know not!
[Sec 18:2h] For, behold, I, God, have suffered these things for all, that they might not suffer, if they would repent; but if they would not repent, they must suffer even as I;
[Sec 18:2i] which suffering caused myself, even God, the greatest of all, to tremble because of pain, and to bleed at every pore, and to suffer both body and spirit, and would that I might not drink the bitter cup, and shrink;
[Sec 18:2j] nevertheless, glory be to the Father, and I partook and finished my preparations unto the children of men;

Our God has given Just Laws and He has appointed Blessings to be upon those who obey Him and Cursings upon those who don’t.

We show our love for God by whether we honour Him and keep His sayings.

We show our Faith by our works of Obedience.

This is why God has prepared a Kingdom made up of many Kingdoms. Those who will not abide the laws of a Celestial Kingdom in the Fullness of the Presence of God the Father. Must inherit a lesser Kingdom even the Terrestrial Kingdom in the presence of Jesus Christ. Those who cannot abide the laws of the Terrestrial Kingdom must inherit a lesser Kingdom even that of the Telestial Kingdom which is broken up into many glories which differ in glory and brightness as one star differs from another, in these Glories they receive of the Holy Ghost and the ministry of Angels.

This life is a time of Probation, to show us what manner of person we are, by what manner we apply ourselves to coming to Know God.

This life is a battle between good and evil, we must fight the good fight.

Mosiah 1:93-130 King Benjamin Speaks of Christ and Judgement
[Mosiah 1:93] For behold, I have things to tell you, concerning that which is to come; and the things which I shall tell you, are made known unto me, by an angel from God.
[Mosiah 1:94] And he said unto me, Awake; and I awoke, and behold, he stood before me.
[Mosiah 1:95] And he said unto me, Awake, and hear the words which I shall tell thee: for behold, I am come to declare unto thee glad tidings of great joy.
[Mosiah 1:96] For the Lord hath heard thy prayers, and hath judged of thy righteousness, and hath sent me to declare unto thee that thou mayest rejoice; and that thou mayest declare unto thy people, that they may also be filled with joy.
[Mosiah 1:97] For behold, the time cometh, and is not far distant, that with power, the Lord Omnipotent who reigneth, who was, and is from all eternity to all eternity, shall come down from heaven, among the children of men, and shall dwell in a tabernacle of clay,
[Mosiah 1:98] And shall go forth amongst men, working mighty miracles, such as healing the sick, raising the dead, causing the lame to walk, the blind to receive their sight, and the deaf to hear, and curing all manner of diseases;
[Mosiah 1:99] And he shall cast out devils, or the evil spirits which dwell in the hearts of the children of men.
[Mosiah 1:100] And lo, he shall suffer temptations, and pain of body, hunger, thirst, and fatigue, even more than man can suffer, except it be unto death;
[Mosiah 1:101] For behold, blood cometh from every pore, so great shall be his anguish for the wickedness and the abominations of his people.
[Mosiah 1:102] And he shall be called Jesus Christ, the Son of God, the Father of heaven and earth, the Creator of all things, from the beginning; and his mother shall be called Mary.
[Mosiah 1:103] And lo, he cometh unto his own, that salvation might come unto the children of men, even through faith, on his name;
[Mosiah 1:104] And even after all this, they shall consider him a man, and say that he hath a devil, and shall scourge him, and shall crucify him.
[Mosiah 1:105] And he shall rise the third day from the dead; and behold, he standeth to judge the world.
[Mosiah 1:106] And behold all these things are done, that a righteous judgement might come upon the children of men.
[Mosiah 1:107] For behold, and also his blood atoneth for the sins of those who have fallen by the transgression of Adam, who have died, not knowing the will of God concerning them, or who have ignorantly sinned.
[Mosiah 1:108] But wo, wo unto him who knoweth that he rebelleth against God; for salvation cometh to none such, except it be through repentance and faith on the Lord Jesus Christ.
[Mosiah 1:109] And the Lord God hath sent his holy prophets among all the children of men to declare these things to every kindred, nation, and tongue, that thereby whosoever should believe that Christ should come, the same might receive remission of their sins, and rejoice with exceedingly great joy, even as though he had already come among them.
[Mosiah 1:110] Yet the Lord God saw that his people were a stiff-necked people, and he appointed unto them a law, even the law of Moses.
[Mosiah 1:111] And many signs, and wonders, and types, and shadows shewed he unto them, concerning his coming:
[Mosiah 1:112] And also holy prophets spake unto them concerning his coming;
[Mosiah 1:113] And yet they hardened their hearts, and understood not that the law of Moses availeth nothing, except it were through the atonement of his blood;
[Mosiah 1:114] And even if it were possible that little children could sin, they could not be saved; but I say unto you, they are blessed;
[Mosiah 1:115] For behold as in Adam, or by nature they fall, even so the blood of Christ atoneth for their sins.
[Mosiah 1:116] And moreover, I say unto you, that there shall be no other name given, nor any other way nor means whereby salvation can come unto the children of men, only in and through the name of Christ, the Lord Omnipotent.
[Mosiah 1:117] For behold, he judgeth, and his judgment is just, and the infant perisheth not, that dieth in his infancy;
[Mosiah 1:118] But men drink damnation to their own souls, except they humble themselves, and become as little children, and believe that salvation was, and is, and is to come, in and through the atoning blood of Christ, the Lord Omnipotent:
[Mosiah 1:119] For the natural man is an enemy to God, and has been, from the fall of Adam, and will be, for ever and ever;
[Mosiah 1:120] But if he yields to the enticings of the Holy Spirit, and putteth off the natural man, and becometh a saint, through the atonement of Christ, the Lord, and becometh as a child, submissive, meek, humble, patient, full of love, willing to submit to all things which the Lord seeth fit to inflict upon him, even as a child doth submit to his father.
[Mosiah 1:121] And moreover, I say unto you, that the time shall come, when the knowledge of a Savior shall spread throughout every nation, kindred, tongue, and people.
[Mosiah 1:122] And behold, when that time cometh, none shall be found blameless before God, except it be little children, only through repentance and faith on the name of the Lord God Omnipotent;
[Mosiah 1:123] And even at this time, when thou shalt have taught thy people the things which the Lord thy God hath commanded thee, even then are they found no more blameless in the sight of God, only according to the words which I have spoken unto thee.
[Mosiah 1:124] And now, I have spoken the words which the Lord God hath commanded me.
[Mosiah 1:125]And thus saith the Lord:They shall stand as a bright testimony against this people, at the judgment day;
[Mosiah 1:126] Whereof, they shall be judged, every man, according to his works, whether they be good, or whether they be evil;
[Mosiah 1:127] And if they be evil, they are consigned to an awful view of their own guilt and abominations, which doth cause them to shrink from the presence of the Lord, into a state of misery and endless torment, from whence they can no more return: therefore, they have drunk damnation to their own souls.
[Mosiah 1:128] Therefore, they have drunk out of the cup of the wrath of God, which justice could no more deny unto them than it could deny that Adam should fall, because of his partaking of the forbidden fruit; therefore, mercy could have claim on them no more for ever.
[Mosiah 1:129] And their torment is as a lake of fire and brimstone, whose flames are unquenchable, and whose smoke ascendeth up for ever and ever.
[Mosiah 1:130] Thus hath the Lord commanded me. Amen.

Our salvation is personal between us and God, no one else’s Faith and Works can save us. Only in and through Christ the Lord Omnipotent doing His perfect work in us personally, can we have right to the Kingdom of the Highest.

[John 3:16] For God so loved the world, that he gave his Only Begotten Son, that whosoever believeth on him should not perish; but have everlasting life.
[John 3:17] For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.
[John 3:18] He who believeth on him is not condemned; but he who believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed on the name of the Only Begotten Son of God, which before was preached by the mouth of the holy prophets; for they testified of me.
[John 3:19] And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men love darkness rather than light, because their deeds are evil.
[John 3:20] For everyone who doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved.
[John 3:21] But he who loveth truth, cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest.
[John 3:22] And he who obeyeth the truth, the works which he doeth they are of God.

The Ministry of Christ is not to condemn but to save. Condemnation is a result of choosing Darkness rather than Light.

May you be blessed as you work out your salvation between God and yourself. I hope for you and I that we may seek the highest kingdom.

The Lower Glories

[Sec 76:7t] But, behold, and lo, we saw the glory and the inhabitants of the telestial world, that they were as innumerable as the stars in the firmament of heaven, or as the sand upon the seashore, and heard the voice of the Lord saying:
[Sec 76:7u] These all shall bow the knee, and every tongue shall confess to him who sits upon the throne for ever and ever;
[Sec 76:7v] for they shall be judged according to their works; and every man shall receive according to his own works, and his own dominion, in the mansions which are prepared, and they shall be servants of the Most High, but where God and Christ dwell they cannot come, worlds without end.
[Sec 76:7w] This is the end of the vision which we saw, which we were commanded to write while we were yet in the Spirit.

The purpose of this life is to come to Know God the Father and Jesus Christ whom He has sent. What a shame it would be to miss out because we would not endure sound doctrine and choose Life Eternal, which means life with God!

Christ prayeth to his Father to glorify him -- To keep his apostles in unity and truth, and all other believers, with him.

[John 17:1] These words spake Jesus, and lifted up his eyes to heaven, and said, Father, the hour is come; glorify thy Son, that thy Son also may glorify thee;
[John 17:2] As thou hast given him power over all flesh, that he should give eternal life to as many as thou hast given him.
[John 17:3] And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent.
[John 17:4] I have glorified thee on the earth; I have finished the work which thou gavest me to do.
[John 17:5] And now, O Father, glorify thou me with thine own self with the glory which I had with thee before the world was.
[John 17:6] I have manifested thy name unto the men which thou gavest me out of the world; thine they were, and thou gavest them me; and they have kept thy word.
[John 17:7] Now they have known that all things whatsoever thou hast given me are of thee.
[John 17:8] For I have given unto them the words which thou gavest me; and they have received them, and have known surely that I came out from thee, and they have believed that thou didst send me.
[John 17:9] I pray for them; I pray not for the world, but for them which thou hast given me; for they are thine.
[John 17:10] And all mine are thine, and thine are mine; and I am glorified in them.
[John 17:11] And now I am no more in the world, but these are in the world, and I come to thee. Holy Father, keep through thine own name those whom thou hast given me, that they may be one, as we are.

Eternal life is to know the only true God and Jesus Christ whom thou has sent. That we may be one as they are one – One in Spirit

Eternal Judgement is God’s Judgement upon all who He has created. With consequences of Joy and Misery depending on our use of our agency in relationship to God’s will.

I trust you have been blessed as you have read these words and I hope you are seeking even now to be closer to your Creator.


Newcastle News submitted by Sr,Gianna Loyd

On Sunday August 14th we had a lovely Communion Service at Bro & Sr David & Melissa Games house in Medowie. It was a small attendance and Elder Kelly Loyd & Elder Danny Archer presided. Danny preached a good Sermon. Then following the Service, we had morning tea & fellowship.

My father Don DiRico’s health has picked up tremendously and he is feeling better each day. Unfortunately he has developed a large blood clot in his leg and this has caused his inability to move as much as he would like. He has to take Clexane on a daily basis at this stage. Thank you all for your continued prayers. Sr Nina is in good health at the moment too. We are grateful for that. Hope to see some of you at Reunion next month. Many blessings till next time.

Prayer request for Glen Gauthier

I have a favor to ask of you. Our very, very good friends, Sally and Del Gauthier just found out over the weekend that their son has throat cancer. They are shocked and devastated. He never smoked a day in his life. They say it started from a virus in the back of his throat. If you would please pray for him, I would appreciate it. His name is Glen Gauthier. He is a very nice guy, just turned 50 and he lives in Nashville Tenn. He starts chemo on Thursday and when his chemo treatments are over he will start radiation. He flew in from Nashville to tell his parents face to face. So heart breaking.
