PIanist for Chitty Chitty Bang Bang

Is there a pianist who wants something fun to do for the next month?

A friend of a friend of mine ;-) is directing the band for Chitty Chitty Bang Bang with the Raytown Community Theatre, and is looking for two pianists. They perform the last two weekends in July -- so I'm guessing you need to be someone who learns really fast!

In Town Reunion and Conference ​June 28 Report​

Greetings Saints,

Monday and Tuesday have gone well at the Restoration Branch Family Reunion and Conference of Restoration Elders. Elder Brian Mundy preached Monday night on the theme: Repent and Obey. Repentance has been the call of the Lord since the Garden of Eden and is evidence of His love for each of us, as He calls us to come unto Him. Elder David Joyce did a great job teaching the general class on the daily themes: Jesus is Calling us to Listen and Jesus is Calling us to Repent and obey. As he pointed out, it is difficult to talk about repentance without also including forgiveness and reconciliation.

Elder Garry Piatt preached Tuesday night on the theme: Calling us to Forgive. DC 64 has been mentioned several times wherein the Lord tells us that forgiveness is required of us and we are required to forgive others, if we want God to forgive us.

Good news on Brother Jim Daugherty: He has been moved out of ICU and making some improvements, but keep up the prayers.


As you may know, the reunion is always funded by the generous donations of the Saints. The budget for the week is $9400.00. If you would like to help us meet the budget, you can bring or send a check made out to the Conference of Restoration Elders.

God bless and keep you in His tender care

In Christ,
Paul Gage

Items for Mammoth Camp


I'm looking to borrow the following items for a summer church camp. First, an antique foot stool, preferably tapestry covered. I also need an old tea kettle, preferably black iron but I'll take what you may have. Also need about 1 dozen table cloths, rectangular, white or ivory and prefer lace. Old and stained is fine. Anything "antique-looking" is great! This is for camp. Items will be returned. I need them by July 11th.

Finding a Restoration Branch

Finding a Restoration Branch

I am trying to help my cousin find a restoration branch near Walcott Iowa. Does anyone know of a branch or even a group of saints that are meeting in homes?

She is currently going to a COC branch and after a recent visit to a Restoration branch in Missouri God has touched her heart to make some changes.

Thanks for any help,

Greetings Dear Saints,

This is the Daily Tidings for this year's Restoration Branch Family Reunion and Conference of Restoration Elders.

The week was begun on Sunday night,June 25, 2017 With Seventy Richard Neill bringing the message. He was assisted, up front by High Priest Francis Harper and Elder Alan Ronk, both of Woodbine, Iowa, Elder Gary Livingston of Salem, Oregon, Priest Andrew Joyce of Morgantown, West Virginia, Elder Ray Lane of Sibley, Missouri and myself, presiding. Beautiful music was presented by Tammy Tandy and Mosiah Allen on the cello, and Angie Goff on the piano. Sister Robin Neill led the song service. There was a very good spirit throughout the service. Our closing hymn was "The Spirit of God like a Fire is Burning," sung by over 300 hundred Saints.

The weekly theme is Jesus is Calling, O Hear Him Today. All evenings services are livestreammed at:

Today's theme was "Repent and Obey," Timely counsel for all of us. There was a wonderful priesthood prayer service at 7am and a general prayer service at 9am. A really good class was taught on the daily theme by Elder David Joyce of Morgantown, West Virginia. In the afternoon, the Elders met in session and there was a general class on Grace.

Saints have come from all over Missouri, as well as Arizona, Iowa, Michigan, Ohio, Oregon, and West Virginia.

Special prayers were offered up for some who would have normally been in attendance, but this year could not be present. They were Jim and Laura Daugherty, of Butler ,Missouri, Jim is in ICU, Frank and Mickey Dippel of West Virginia, who need to be close to their daughter who has medical problems, Eric and Pam Odida, from Kenya, who could not get passport clearance this year, Alan and Kathy Teel, of Oklahoma, both of whom are having some health issues, and Darrell and Fran Webster of Ohio, who also have health issues.

JULY 2017

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

G'Day! and God's blessings to all the lovely Saints in Australia,

I hope all is going well for each of you and that you just about have Zion ready to transport to the Centre Place. Notice I did not put lol (lots of laughs) after that statement. It is a difficult struggle we all deal with every minute of every day of our lives. It is like the parable of the "Wheat and Tares" as found in Matthew 13:22-29. It reads a little differently from the King James. Other related scriptures can be found in Doctrine and Covenants 38:3; 84:1,2; 85:26; and 98:9.

in the parable, they are told to let the tares grow among the wheat until the day of Judgment, but remember, like all of Jesus' sayings, there is a spiritual meaning as well as a physical meaning. In that sense, God will be the Judge who can know who is wheat or tare. In our daily walk, the wheat and tare parable is like the gardens and fields we plant. If we let the tares (weeds) grow out of control, then soon, our garden or field will be unfruitful. So it is with our spiritual gardens and fields. If we let sin spring up and grow out of control, it will destroy our lives both spiritually and physically, thus we must be in daily, even hourly repentance, as needed, to keep the tares out of our lives. Don't underestimate the "power" of one bad seed (sin) even one that might seem to be "ok." In a sermon, by Elbert A . Smith, in the book Zion Builders Sermons, which was preached to the youth of the Church in Lamoni, Iowa and Independence, Missouri in 1921, Brother Smith told of a farmer who was plowing his field one day and found a cocklebur plant. He did not know what it was and so he carefully plowed around it and even watered and nurtured it. It eventually took over the whole field and the farmer was no longer able to grow corn or wheat. Brother Smith said he visited that same field 20 years later and it was still full of cockleburs. He defined a cocklebur as an ornery and pestiferous plant. You can look these words up for yourself and they will have greater meaning. Sin is ornery and pestiferous and can only be controlled by pulling them out by the roots, just like the cocklebur.

We are now half way through the year 2017. Is the year half gone or is there still half to go? It all depends on how we look at things. We can mourn over the loss of half a year or rejoice in the Lord that we still have half a year to go and live for Him, or whatever time He allows us to live,

We hear much talk and scriptures quoted about the "Cause of Zion." The Cause of Zion is the righteousness of the Saints. Doctrine and Covenants 140:5c makes it very plain and puts the responsibility squarely upon the shoulders of each one of us.

Camps, graduations, retreats, reunions, and many branch activities have filled the month of June and will continue through July. The Conference of Restoration Elders (CRE) and Pastors of Zion (POZ) have started the Annual Summer Preaching Series. It began June 11 and will go through August 13. The Series is held at Waldo Avenue Restoration Branch. The theme is:” Seek to Bring Forth and Establish the Cause of Zion." That sounds familiar. All services are live streamed and can be viewed anywhere in the world, if you have a computer. The web address is on the inside back cover of each Tidings of Zion.

We are still waiting on testimonies from Australia for future Tidings. Send yours today.

**************** Riches from the Scriptures Volume 03 by Elder Neil Kerswell, Brisbane, Australia Chapter 6 “THE GLORY of GOD” Part 1 Back in 2009 I did a 2 part series on the Glory of God, I would like to share this with you. D&C 22:2-4A No man can behold all God’s Glory and remain in the Flesh on the Earth[Sec 22:2] And God spake unto Moses, saying, Behold, I am the Lord God Almighty, and Endless is my name, for I am without beginning of days or end of years; and is not this endless? [Sec 22:3a] And behold, thou art my son, wherefore look, and I will show thee the workmanship of mine hands, but not all; [Sec 22:3b] for my works are without end, and also my words, for they never cease; [Sec 22:3c] wherefore, no man can behold all my works except he behold all my glory; [Sec 22:3d] and no man can behold all my glory, and afterwards remain in the flesh, on the earth. [Sec 22:4a] And I have a work for thee, Moses, my son; and thou art in the similitude of mine Only Begotten; and my Only Begotten is and shall be the Saviour, for he is full of grace and truth; We are told that man is a little lower than the Angels, and from this reading it is obvious God is filled with almighty power and light and for us as Human Beings, to be able to dwell with Him in His fullness, a change must take place. For a start we need to repent and be baptised of water and spirit, this is the beginning of the journey. In the experience above if we read further, God’s glory came upon Moses allowing him to see with Spiritual eyes. Moses is referred to as a Son of God, we all become Sons and Daughters of God as we follow the principles of Salvation. Moses was in process of becoming a High Priest and Prophet like unto Christ who is the “Great” High Priest and Holy Prophet. There was more to this likeness in as much as Moses would lead God’s covenant people from bondage to Freedom in his day with the promise that God’s angels would go before them and after them. In the last days Christ is that great Prophet who shall go before and after His covenant people, leading them from the bondage of Babylon (evil world) unto Freedom in Zion (the city of God), fulfilling scripture that God’s presence will be with them. Genesis 3:1-5 We must not take God’s Honour unto Ourselves [Genesis 3:1] And I, the Lord God, spake unto Moses, saying, That Satan whom thou hast commanded in the name of mine Only Begotten, is the same which was from the beginning; [Genesis 3:2] And he came before me, saying, Behold I, send me, I will be thy Son, and I will redeem all mankind, that one soul shall not be lost, and surely I will do it; wherefore, give me thine honor. [Genesis 3:3] But behold, my beloved Son, which was my beloved and chosen from the beginning, said unto me: Father, thy will be done, and the glory be thine forever. [Genesis 3:4] Wherefore, because that Satan rebelled against me, and sought to destroy the agency of man, which I, the Lord God, had given him; and also that I should give unto him mine own power; by the power of mine Only Begotten I caused that he should be cast down; and he became Satan. [Genesis 3:5] Yea, even the devil, the father of all lies, to deceive, and to blind men, and to lead them captive at his will, even as many as would not hearken unto my voice. Satan, who is one of our best recorded examples of Pride before a fall, was seeking the top job, he wanted to be the Redeemer of the world, not for the Glory of God but rather for himself. He hoped to achieve this by doing it all his own preconceived way, taking away the agency of God’s creation therefore forcing all to believe and conform to his whims and dictates. Satan is not on his own in this desire, his followers in all generations have sought to gain power over their fellow man and manipulate them into obedience to him or her. Thanks be to God, Jesus Christ who was His beloved and chosen from the beginning responded in the following manner, (Father thy will be done, and the Glory be thine forever). What a contrast to Satan? The one coming from a dark sense of thinking more highly of himself than he ought. The other from the wellspring of Eternal life, a personage in whom God dwelt in bodily form and yet He was filled with humility and love, giving all glory unto God the Father forever. It is this example we must always uphold if we hope to truly be Children of God through Christ. Imagine what our church experience would be like if only God’s people followed their Saviour’s example at all times. Sadly sometimes we see the traits as displayed in the nature of Satan. Personal Testimony: In the year 2009 I had a dream one morning. I had been preparing in heart and mind for a Service that meant a lot to me. God used this as an opportunity to share with me a truth unrelated to the Service, but something which has helped me to understand Him better. I saw a dark Angel standing Tall, Proud, Strong & Confident, facing towards me. Then I saw from behind a Person who I believed and thought to be Christ facing the Dark Angel with his back towards me. I sensed from the angel that he believed he was equal in power to Christ. There was a loud crack like unto lightning, and instantly the Dark angel collapsed to his knees under the power of God. I saw in him, wonder, grief, and surprise, for I perceived that he genuinely believed he was equal to Christ. He was sorry but not for his wrong, but because he had been beaten in an instant. I awoke and wondered at how real the dream had been. I prayed and wondered how it was possible that this angel could genuinely think he was equal to Christ. A scripture came into my mind “Jesus was made a little lower than the angels” This is a scripture I have never really liked and have avoided because it seemed to me to be conflicting with who I believed Christ to be. However at that time, I started to understand and for the next half an hour or so in my mind preached a Sermon on the subject and learnt from it. These are some scriptures that came to mind Hebrews 1:10-14 [Hebrews 1:10] And, Thou, Lord, in the beginning hast laid the foundation of the earth; and the heavens are the works of thine hands. [Hebrews 1:11] They shall perish, but thou remainest; and they all shall wax old as doth a garment; [Hebrews 1:12] And as a vesture shalt thou fold them up, and they shall be changed; but thou art the same, and thy years shall not fail. [Hebrews 1:13] But to which of the angels said he at any time, Sit on my right hand, until I make thine enemies thy footstool? [Hebrews 1:14] Are they not all ministering spirits, sent forth to minister for them who shall be heirs of salvation? God made the heavens and the Earth, although they shall perish God remains and is everlasting. There are Angels who are ministering spirits who are sent to people who are heirs of salvation. There is one Person who sits on the right hand of God. Hebrews 2:9-18 [Hebrews 2:9] But we see Jesus, who was made a little lower than the angels for the suffering of death, crowned with glory and honor; that he by the grace of God should taste death for every man. [Hebrews 2:10] For it became him, for whom are all things, and by whom are all things, in bringing many sons unto glory, to make the captain of their salvation perfect through sufferings. [Hebrews 2:11] For both he that sanctifieth and they who are sanctified are all of one; for which cause he is not ashamed to call them brethren, [Hebrews 2:12] Saying, I will declare thy name unto my brethren, in the midst of the church will I sing praise unto thee. [Hebrews 2:13] And again, I will put my trust in him. And again, Behold I and the children which God hath given me. [Hebrews 2:14] Forasmuch then as the children are partakers of flesh and blood, he also himself likewise took part of the same; that through death he might destroy him that had the power of death, that is, the devil; [Hebrews 2:15] And deliver them, who through fear of death were all their lifetime subject to bondage. [Hebrews 2:16] For verily, he took not on him the likeness of angels; but he took on him the seed of Abraham. [Hebrews 2:17] Wherefore in all things it behooved him to be made like unto his brethren, that he might be a merciful and faithful high priest in things pertaining to God, to make reconciliation for the sins of the people. [Hebrews 2:18] For in that he himself hath suffered being tempted, he is able to succor them that are tempted. Jesus entered this world in a form that was a little lower than the angels, like unto us. He did this to overcome sin in the flesh and so it was possible that He could be put to death for the sins of all mankind to make atonement for all his creation. Christ is our big brother and our God. This is what makes the atonement and life of Christ so wonderful and miraculous, is that he of his own self was truly righteous, keeping all God’s commandments and growing from grace to grace just as we do, because he was faithful he received a fullness just as we are promised if we are faithful through Christ who is our advocate with the Father, that we shall receive a fullness through Him. Christ is of the lineage of Abraham, and as Abraham was obedient to God and was willing to offer up his Son (once his obedience was proven the Angel of God told him to offer a ram caught in a thicket in his son’s stead. This was all a type and likeness, looking forward to the time when Jesus, of the line of Abraham, who is both God and Man, would offer His life a sacrifice in the stead of each and every one of us (this is why God provided the ram for Abraham, no man’s life is worthy, only the lamb of God is worthy). He rose from the dead because death could not hold Him. If we are faithful and follow Christ’s example and commandments, we too are promised that in like manner we shall be raised to life in the resurrections through the power of Christ. In everything we rely on Christ. This is why there is no person who has ever been or is now or ever shall be that doesn’t have the need to be humble and truly thankful at all times. Because none of us are righteous on our own and there is not one of us who can overcome sin in the flesh except they be filled with the power of the Holy Ghost or Comforter. This why there is no one who can be proud and not sin. We are dependent upon Christ for all that is good or happy. The Holy Ghost is the same Spirit and power that is the life of God in Christ being perfect. The Holy Ghost is the light and life of Christ who abides in our bodies as temples. While ever we have a heart to be saved, Christ strives in our life and body to make us one with Him as he is one with the Father. This is the Glory of God and Eternal life ([John 17:3] And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent). To inherit Eternal life we must truly know as we are known to God, understanding the way and purpose of our creation, understanding our dependence and need of God in our lives. Keeping God’s desires for us should be the fruit of God’s spirit dwelling in us, as is all the other gifts of God. Gen 7:1-4 Enoch was clothed upon by the Glory of God [Gen 7:1] And it came to pass, that Enoch continued his speech, saying, Behold, our father Adam taught these things, and many have believed, and become the sons of God; and many have believed not, and have perished in their sins, and are looking forth with fear, in torment, for the fiery indignation of the wrath of God to be poured out upon them. [Gen 7:2] And from that time forth, Enoch began to prophesy, saying unto the people, that, as I was journeying, and stood in the place Mahujah, and cried unto the Lord, there came a voice out of heaven, saying, Turn ye and get ye upon the mount Simeon. [Gen 7:3] And it came to pass, that I turned and went up on the mount; and as I stood upon the mount, I beheld the heavens open, and I was clothed upon with glory. [Gen 7:4] And I saw the Lord, and he stood before my face, and he talked with me, even as a man talketh one with another, face to face; and he said unto me, Look, and I will show unto thee the world for the space of many generations. God wants to share with us, however God and His ways are glorious and powerful, more than the natural man in his sins can bare, this is why Enoch was clothed upon with Glory. He was then able to see the Lord in reality face to face. Gen 7: 80-81 We can take the Glory of God unto ourselves - unworthily [Gen 7:80] And it came to pass, that Methuselah prophesied that from his loins should spring all the kingdoms of the earth; (through Noah,) and he took glory unto himself. [Gen 7:81] And there came forth a great famine into the land, and the Lord cursed the earth with a sore curse, and many of the inhabitants thereof died. Exodus 24: 15-18 _ Glory of God can be like a devouring fire [Exo 24:15] And Moses went up into the mount, and a cloud covered the mount. [Exo 24:16] And the glory of the Lord abode upon mount Sinai, and the cloud covered it six days; and the seventh day he called unto Moses out of the midst of the cloud. [Exo 24:17] And the sight of the glory of the Lord was like devouring fire on the top of the mount in the eyes of the children of Israel. [Exo 24:18] And Moses went into the midst of the cloud, and gat him up into the mount; and Moses was in the mount forty days and forty nights. When you think about it, the children of Israel refused to be sanctified and come up to meet God. In their sins God seemed terrifying. This is why there are required steps and principles to be closely followed to allow us to be truly sanctified through Christ’s righteousness. Remember it is God’s Spirit which justifies us. Only in Christ can we truly be made free and able to dwell in the fullness of God’s presence. Our agency brings about the need for the degrees of Glory (Celestial, Terrestrial, and Telestial). Not all people will do what is necessary for the great change to be wrought upon us to be able to inherit the fullness of God’s Glory. Exodus 33:17-23 No Sinful man shall see the face of God and live [Exo 33:17] And the Lord said unto Moses, I will do this thing also that thou hast spoken; for thou hast found grace in my sight, and I know thee by name. [Exo 33:18] And he said, I beseech thee, show me thy glory. [Exo 33:19] And he said, I will make all my goodness pass before thee, and I will proclaim the name of the Lord before thee; and will be gracious to whom I will be gracious, and will show mercy on whom I will show mercy. [Exo 33:20] And he said unto Moses, Thou canst not see my face at this time, lest mine anger be kindled against thee also, and I destroy thee, and thy people; for there shall no man among them see me at this time, and live, for they are exceeding sinful. And no sinful man hath at any time, neither shall there be any sinful man at any time, that shall see my face and live. [Exo 33:21] And the Lord said, Behold, thou shalt stand upon a rock, and I will prepare a place by me for thee. [Exo 33:22] And it shall come to pass, while my glory passeth by, that I will put thee in a cleft of a rock, and cover thee with my hand while I pass by. [Exo 33:23] And I will take away mine hand, and thou shalt see my back parts, but my face shall not be seen, as at other times; for I am angry with my people Israel. Numbers 14: 22-43 Woe unto those who have known the Glory of God and Disobey – We must praise God and give Honor - There is a price for running God’s works down!! [Num 14:22] Because all those men which have seen my glory, and my miracles, which I did in Egypt and in the wilderness, and have tempted me now these ten times, and have not hearkened to my voice; [Num 14:23] Surely they shall not see the land which I swear unto their fathers, neither shall any of them that provoked me see it; [Num 14:24] But my servant Caleb, because he had another spirit with him, and hath followed me fully, him will I bring into the land whereinto he went; and his seed shall possess it. [Num 14:25] (Now the Amalekites and the Canaanites dwelt in the valley.) Tomorrow turn you, and get you into the wilderness by the way of the Red sea. [Num 14:26] And the Lord spake unto Moses, and unto Aaron, saying, [Num 14:27] How long shall I bear with this evil congregation, which murmur against me? I have heard the murmurings of the children of Israel, which they murmur against me. [Num 14:28] Say unto them, As truly as I live, saith the Lord, as ye have spoken in mine ears, so will I do to you; [Num 14:29] Your carcasses shall fall in this wilderness, and all that were numbered of you, according to your whole number, from twenty years old and upward, which have murmured against me, [Num 14:30] Doubtless ye shall not come into the land, concerning which I sware to make you dwell therein, save Caleb the son of Jephunneh, and Joshua the son of Nun. [Num 14:31] But your little ones, which ye said should be a prey, them will I bring in, and they shall know the land which ye have despised. [Num 14:32] But as for you, your carcasses, they shall fall in this wilderness. [Num 14:33] And your children shall wander in the wilderness forty years, and bear your whoredoms, until your carcasses be wasted in the wilderness. [Num 14:34] After the number of the days in which he searched the land, even forty days, each day for a year, shall ye bear your iniquities, even forty years, and ye shall know my breach of promise. [Num 14:35] I the Lord have said, I will surely do it unto all this evil congregation, that are gathered together against me; in this wilderness they shall be consumed, and there they shall die. [Num 14:36] And the men which Moses sent to search the land, who returned, and made all the congregation to murmur against him, by bringing up a slander upon the land. [Num 14:37] Even those men that did bring up the evil report upon the land, died by the plague before the Lord. [Num 14:38] But Joshua the son of Nun, and Caleb the son of Jephunneh, which were of the men that went to search the land, lived still. [Num 14:39] And Moses told these sayings unto all the children of Israel; and the people mourned greatly. [Num 14:40] And they rose up early in the morning, and gat them up into the top of the mountain, saying, Lo, we be here, and will go up unto the place which the Lord hath promised; for we have sinned. [Num 14:41] And Moses said, Wherefore now do ye transgress the commandment of the Lord? but it shall not prosper. [Num 14:42] Go not up, for the Lord is not among you; that ye be not smitten before your enemies. [Num 14:43] For the Amalekites and the Canaanites are there before you, and ye shall fall by the sword; because ye are turned away from the Lord, therefore the Lord will not be with you. The people who bore false witness against the promised land of God were cursed because they should have treasured what God had prepared for them and honoured Him for it. Instead of rejoicing in His promise they murmured and said God has led them into the desert to die and that their children would become prey. Because of this only the little ones would inherit the Promised Land and a few of the older generation who had stayed true in heart. Isaiah 4:1-5 The Glory of the Lord shall be upon Zion [Isa 4:1] In that day shall the branch of the Lord be beautiful and glorious, and the fruit of the earth shall be excellent and comely to them that are escaped of Israel. [Isa 4:2] And it shall come to pass, they that are left in Zion, and he that remaineth in Jerusalem, shall be called holy, even everyone that is written among the living in Jerusalem; [Isa 4:3] When the Lord shall have washed away the filth of the daughters of Zion, and shall have purged the blood of Jerusalem from the midst thereof by the spirit of judgment, and by the spirit of burning. [Isa 4:4] And the Lord will create upon every dwelling place of mount Zion, and upon her assemblies, a cloud and smoke by day, and the shinning of a flaming fire by night; for upon all the glory of Zion shall be a defense. [Isa 4:5] And there shall be a tabernacle for a shadow in the daytime from the heat, and for a place of refuge, and for a covert from storm and from rain. Romans 3: 23-24 We all fall short of the Glory of God [Rom 3:23] For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God; [Rom 3:24] Therefore being justified only by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus; 1st Corinthians 15:39-44 There are various degrees of being blessed with God’s Glory [1 Cor 15:39] All flesh is not the same flesh; but there is one kind of flesh of men, another flesh of beasts, another of fishes, and another of birds. [1 Cor 15:40] Also celestial bodies, and bodies terrestrial, and bodies telestial; but the glory of the celestial, one; and the terrestrial, another; and the telestial, another. [1 Cor 15:41] There is one glory of the sun, and another glory of the moon, and another glory of the stars; for one star differeth from another star in glory. [1 Cor 15:42] So also is the resurrection of the dead. It is sown in corruption, it is raised in incorruption; [1 Cor 15:43] It is sown in dishonor, it is raised in glory; it is sown in weakness, it is raised in power; [1 Cor 15:44] It is sown a natural body, it is raised a spiritual body. There is a natural body, and there is a spiritual body. God’s plan of Salvation respects Agency and blesses us to be in a place which is truly “us” in relationship to God. I hope we can all see how we should address our Brothers and Sisters both in and out of the Faith. It is truly our duty to share, what we have been freely given we are asked to freely give to others so they may have opportunity to partake of the goodness of God. However we know that if we force or manipulate another to believe our way, we fall just as satan did seeking to take away the agency of Man which is most precious and is to be cherished, appreciated and respected. I would like to finish with this thought. All good comes of God through Jesus Christ our Lord. We are nothing without Him. To know as we are known is to know our place and to whom we belong. May we all be blessed in our own experience with God, to be the best that we can be in Him, is my Prayer in Jesus Name Amen . **************** Victoria News Church of Jesus Christ Restoration Branch, Kelvin View submitted by Elder Murray Broughton "For thou art my rock and my fortress; therefore for thy name's sake ,Lead me and guide me."

Love the Truth - June 23/2017

From: Francis Harper

Love the Truth - June 23/2017

Dear Ones,

The immortal words of the Lord to Noah were, “And this is mine everlasting covenant, that when thy posterity shall embrace the truth and look upward, then shall Zion [Enoch’s city] look downward and all the heavens shall shake with gladness and all the earth should [shall] tremble with joy . . . And the bow shall be in the cloud; and I will look upon it, that I may remember the everlasting covenant, which I made unto thy father Enoch; that, when men shall keep all my commandments, Zion should [shall] again come on the earth, the city of Enoch which I have caught up unto myself” (Genesis 9:22-21 IV).

Jesus came to bear witness of light and truth, but his primary mission was to seek and save the lost. “For God so loved the world, that he gave his Only Begotten Son, that whosoever believeth on him should [shall] not perish but have everlasting life” (John 3:16). The followers [disciples] of Jesus have a similar life-saving mission: “. . . because he laid down his life for us; we ought to lay down our lives for the brethren” (1 John 3:16).

I presided at a funeral recently for a law enforcement officer. He was a close friend of my son-in-law, Alan Ronk, who was Chief of Police in Woodbine until his retirement. Alan also participated in the funeral service. He pointed out that instead of running away from trouble, police officers run toward it, often risking their own lives to save the lives of others.

Most of us still remember 9/11/01 when more than 3,000 lives were lost, including 400 police officers and firemen. These brave men had rushed to the twin towers to assist in this heroic life-saving effort. “Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends” (John 15:13).

Each of the towers of the World Trade Center were brought down by just one large aircraft. Another plane, similar in size, crashed into the Pentagon, in Washington D.C.

Islamic terrorists hijacked a fourth airliner, Flight 93. It is believed this plane’s target was the U. S. Capitol, also in Washington D. C. Those aboard Flight 93 were aware of the tragic events of the morning. Todd Beamer, the father of three, was successful in contacting a GTE operator. He asked her to call his wife, Lisa. Then he asked the operator, Lisa Jefferson, to pray the Lord’s Prayer with him.

After prayer, Todd quickly devised an attack plan with some fellow passengers, in an effort to regain control of the plane. The last words heard by the operator were, “Are you guys ready? Let’s roll!” During the scuffle the plane plummeted to the earth at 400 miles per hour. This was another selfless act on behalf of others that happened many times during that ill-fated day.

Todd’s wife, Lisa, said, “Knowing truth and God’s eternal plan helped me endure the pain and sorrow without becoming hysterical. I knew in the end it would be OK. I said this over and over, and I still do. In eternity it will be OK, even though here it is not OK.”

Knowing the truth helped Kay Browning as she said to me, with a smile, “I have terminal cancer, but I am OK.” Many years earlier she had been in a car accident in which one of her daughters was killed, and Kay was so seriously injured that she would never walk again.

The truth is that Jesus has gone to prepare a place for us, and will come again to receive us; that where he is, we “may be also” (John 14:3).

My love to all,
Francis Harper

Love the Truth

From: Francis Harper

Love the Truth

As Jesus was being questioned by Pilate he was asked, “Art thou a king then? Jesus answered, “Thou sayest I am a king. To this end was I born, and for this cause came I into the world, that I should bear witness unto the truth. Everyone that is of the truth heareth my voice” (John 18:37). Then Pilate asked, “What is truth?” (John 18:38).
Pilate did not wait for an answer. He, like the vast majority in the world today, felt that he had more pressing business at the moment. It was the same when Paul spoke “forth the words of truth and soberness” before the Roman rulers in Caesarea (Acts 26:25). Felix trembled and procrastinated, saying, “Go thy way for this time; when I have a convenient season, I will call for thee” (Acts 24:25). Likewise, Agrippa was resisting the truth when he said to Paul, “Almost thou persuadest me to be a Christian” (Acts 26:28).
The natural man resists truth. We need to seek for truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth! Embrace the truth! Love the truth! Loving and embracing truth brings spiritual health, strength and blessings.
We would do well to desire truth more than any earthly treasure. I recall George Doubledee of near Joplin, Missouri, sharing about his mother, who was of Cherokee lineage and a Southern Baptist, praying many times, “Lord, if there is more truth than I have, lead me to it; and give me the wisdom to accept it when it comes.”
Sadly, I have observed that those who are diligently searching for truth are extremely rare today. Jesus promised, “And all they that do hunger and thirst for righteousness [and truth] shall be filled with the Holy Ghost” (Matthew 5:8).
Jesus was the embodiment of truth. John described Jesus as the word of God. “And the same word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the Only Begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth” (John 1:14). Jesus declared, “I am the way, the truth, and the life, no man cometh unto the Father but by me” (John 14:6).

Jesus teaching on hillside 001Jesus said, “. . . Know the truth and the truth shall make you free” (John 8:32). In scriptural parlance, to know means more than having knowledge. As in “Adam knew Eve, his wife; and she conceived. . .” (Genesis 5:4 IV; 4:1 KJV). This clearly speaks of an intimate relationship; a loving relationship. Jesus said to the unwise virgins, “Ye know me not” (Matthew 25:11 IV; 25:12 KJV). They certainly knew about him. The scriptural definition of knowing implies a deeper, more intimate relationship. We must have a deep love and desire for Jesus and the truth he taught and represented.
When Jesus said knowing the truth shall make us free, he was speaking of being set free from selfishness, pride and all the entanglements of sin. Those who love and embrace the truth will also be delivered [set free] from deception, delusions, depression, doubt, discouragement, despair, darkness and death—the dreadful D’s!
Paul wrote of those “who love not the truth.” “For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men; who love not the truth, but remain in unrighteousness” (Romans 1:18). “. . . because they receive not the love of the truth that they might be saved, . . . God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie; that they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness” (2 Thessalonians 2:10-12).
Truth is a part of the armor of God: “Wherefore take unto you the whole armor of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all to stand. Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth . . .” (Ephesians 6:13-14). Truth is an indispensible part of the armor of God, which will protect us from the “fiery darts of the wicked” (Ephesians 6:16).

Prayer Request for Missionaries

From: G. Miller

Prayer Request for Missionaries

Please pray for the safety of this family. Joan is my cousin.

Hi Gary,

Flint, Michigan made World News again. There was an act of terror at our airport, Bishop International Airport, this morning. One alleged terrorist, one victim. He is a resident of Canada, entered the U.S. in New York, rented a car and drove to Flint. No idea why he chose Flint. He attacked a police officer from behind and stuck a 12 inch knife in his neck. The officer survived. He was initially in critical condition and after surgery is in stable condition and expected to recover fully. The airport has been closed all day and the FBI is investigating. As he stabbed the officer is was shouting in Arabic. He has a strong hatred for the U.S. but why he chose Flint nobody knows. We have had news coverage nearly all day.

Here is the reason I am asking you to pray. Tomorrow at 6:00 a.m., Angela, her husband Todd, and our youngest granddaughter Jenna are leaving for a mission trip to Guatemala. They live in Grand Rapids, two hours west of here. They will be gone one week. I am nervous thinking about them being in airports and traveling to another country. So much has been happening lately. I told Todd that I would be praying for their safety and his reply was "it's all up to God". I know that, but I still think prayers are in order. So, I would appreciate any and all prayers for their family. We will be staying at their house all week. Our oldest granddaughter has to work, so she could not join them on this mission trip. She is 20 and could stay alone but asked us if we could come and stay with her. Of course we are going.

Thank you in advance,

A Very Small Remnant 6/16/2017

From: Francis Harper

A Very Small Remnant 6/16/2017

Dear Ones,

I believe, without a doubt, we are living at a very historic moment in time. The Lord prophesied that the day would come in which “Except those days should be shortened there should none of their flesh be saved. But for the elect’s sake, those days shall be shortened. Behold these things I have spoken unto you concerning the Jews” (Matthew 24:19-21 IV; 24:22 KJV). Today, the elect—the Jews and the whole house of Israel—is being threatened with extinction as never before, and that threat is real.

Only in our generation has the fulfillment of the prophecy of Jesus that “except those days be shortened there should none of their flesh be saved,” been possible. These are perilous days for both body and soul. Therefore this is not a day for doing business as usual.

God’s desire for his saints is that their last days shall be their best. The best wine was served last at the wedding feast at Cana. The “greater works” that Jesus prophesied are still ahead of us. These things will come. His promises are sure. God will soon open the flood gates of heaven to release his living waters as never before. This will produce the promised greater works, that “the glory of his latter house shall be greater than the former” (Haggai 2:9).

The final words of Jesus in his revelation to John were: “Surely I come quickly” (Revelation 22:20). Nearly 2,000 years have passed and he has not come. Perhaps the word “suddenly” should be used as in Malachi 3:1: “. . . and the Lord whom ye seek, shall suddenly come to his temple, even the messenger of the covenant, whom ye delight in; behold he shall come, saith the Lord of hosts.”

There are several scriptures related to the Lord’s coming in glory that speak of his sudden appearance and the time being shortened:

“Let my disciples therefore take heed to themselves lest at any time their hearts be overcharged with surfeiting [overindulgence] and drunkenness, and cares of this life, and that day come upon them unawares. For as a snare [a trap] it shall come on all them that dwell on the face of the whole earth” (Luke 21:34). “For he will finish the work and cut it short in righteousness; because a short work will the Lord make upon the earth” (Romans 9:28). “I tell you that he will come, and when he does come, he will avenge his saints speedily. Nevertheless, when the Son of Man cometh, shall he find faith on the earth?” (Luke 18:8). “. . . except those days should be shortened, there should none of their flesh be saved” (Matthew 24:19).

“ I will hasten my word to perform it” (Jeremiah 1:12). “The hastening time is here . . .” “The hastening time is upon us . . .” “The hastening time is at hand. . .” (D & C 135:2b; 141:5; 149:9a).

We are definitely living in the hastening time.
We send our love and prayers,

A Very Small Remnant

From: Francis Harper

A Very Small Remnant

God is looking for a people who, want more than anything else in the world, to walk in his explicit and perfect will. When he finds such a people he will be able to send them forth with his power and anointing to do anything he wants them to do. Nothing will be impossible for this willing people to accomplish.

The day of our willingness will be the day of God’s power. We must know his will and be willing to walk in it. Only then will we fulfill his purposes in our lives.

We must be willing to wait for the Lord’s instructions. Waiting is difficult. All of man’s organizing, zeal, eloquence, intelligence has come to naught. We must be willing to wait for the Lord and his Holy Spirit to lead and guide us to where we need to be and what we need to be doing for the Lord and his kingdom.

In his dreams, Nebuchadnezzar saw a stone [evidently quite small] cut out of the mountain without hands [of men] that smote the feet of an image [shaped in the form of a man] that “became a great mountain and filled the whole earth” (Daniel 2:35). The stone, very small and insignificant in its beginning [representing the kingdom of God on earth], will eventually fill the whole earth.

5 loaves 2 fishes 001Although “the dream is certain and the interpretation thereof [is] sure” (Daniel 2:45), the stone is still very small today. But remember, the Lord delights in using very small means to accomplish his great work. The lunch of a lad, when blessed by the Lord, was more than enough to feed five thousand. See John 6:9-14. Isaiah prophesied: “Except the Lord of hosts had left unto us a very small remnant, we should have been as [will be as] Sodom, and we should have been like [will be like] Gomorrah” (Isaiah 1:9).

Nephi wrote, “. . . I beheld the church of the Lamb of God, and its numbers were few . . . Nevertheless, I beheld that the church of the Lamb, who were the saints of God, were also upon all the face of the earth; and their dominions upon the face of the earth were small . . .” (1 Nephi 3:226-228).

It is not a matter of numbers. Jonathan and his armor-bearer proved “. . . there is no restraint to the Lord to save by many or by few” (1 Samuel 14:6).

“The foolishness of God is wiser than men; and the weakness of God is stronger than men. For ye see your calling, brethren, how that not many wise men after the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble, are chosen; for God hath chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise; and God hath chosen the weak things [a very small remnant] of the world to confound the things which are mighty; and base things of the world, and things which are despised, hath God chosen . . . that no flesh should glory in his presence” (1 Corinthians 1:25-29).

The Lord has given us this precious “stone cut out of the mountain without hands” as our stewardship. “. . . unto whomsoever much is given, of him shall much be required” (Luke 12:57 IV; 12:48 KJV).

I am confident that in God’s perfect and precise timing a very small remnant of Saints will arise to fulfill the prophecies of Isaiah, Nephi and Daniel.

Like a seed without water is dormant, the stone representing the kingdom of God will remain in dormancy until it is enlivened by the Holy Spirit.

As the early Saints prayed and waited for Pentecost, we must wait and pray for Pentecost again. The kingdom will come “not by might, nor by power, but by my Spirit, saith the Lord of hosts” (Zechariah 4:6). “The dream is certain, and the interpretation thereof sure” (Daniel 2:45).

I want to be associated with the very small remnant the Lord will utilize to establish his kingdom. How about you?
