Does the Mormon Prophet Talk to God?

Enoch and the City of Zion Were of One Heart, One Fold - and One Shepherd.

Enoch literally brought his entire city into the presence Of God, and the entire City was taken up to be with God... And they dwelt in righteousness.

THIS ARTICLE IS A RESPONSE TO THE HUB:

Mormon President, Monson - New Prophet-Leader, Of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day-Saints Called By His HAND!

Y- Question: sandra rinck asked - How does someone know if they are a prophet? You said in your hub that a prophet gets word from God himself, so if many claim to have heard God through the Holy Spirit, then how does just one become chosen?

My - Answer: LdsNana-AskMormon - Yes, all who desire to know a given truth of themselves and ask for confirmation of such, may know for themselves, of that truth. And that is the condition that all must arrive at in order that ALL may know the TRUTH or the WILL of God.

The condition of the ONE - who is the President and also considered to be the ONE authorized by Jesus Christ to act in His Name is so that His Church may be ONE -- His Prophet.

Once again, stay with me, because this is really cool.

Look at all the many different sects and denominations in the world today - and no two are in harmony; or even close for that matter. What has actually happened for the most part, is an agreement to disagree ‘in christ’.

Mere reason and logic must conclude, that harmony achieved in such a manner - could not possibly be the Lord’s way?

It is the most difficult of all accomplishments to be in harmony with one another, thus the need to be unified as ONE could only ever possibly be IF it were done in Christ.

That man who is called as President of the Church is also considered a Prophet, Seer and Revelator for the entire body of the Saints. Thus, he is the only person upon the earth - that is authorized by God - to declare either doctrine or the truths of the Gospel of Jesus Christ, etc... for the entire body of the Church. These declarations that come from the head of the Church, are binding upon the Latter-Day-Saints. ( I will treat the nature of personal revelation in a different article versus revelation for the entire Church.)

Jesus Christ Himself Set The Pattern For How His ONE is Called.

Prophets Declare That Which Is Commanded of God

Prophets are generally accepted - only by the very few, that will hearken to their words...

Prophets Speak In The Name Of Jesus Christ...

This may sound unique, and it is, but it is the appointed pattern that God Himself has established from the beginning. God, whenever He has had a prophet upon the earth - his calling is to lead the people of God - to Christ. The prophet speaks on behalf of Jesus Christ, and does so in His Name - those truths that will bring all unto Jesus Christ.

When Jesus Christ was upon the earth, even He, submitted His will to the will of the Father - who is at His Head. This pattern of 'ONE' upon the earth as the Prophet of God - is well established. Jesus Christ received His authority and power from God His Father, whom even Jesus Christ, was accountable to in all Laws. The very atoning sacrifice, had to meet the demands of the Law, who is the very Eternal Father.

Jesus Christ was our perfect example of obedience unto His Father - and we are commanded to “Follow Him”.

Jesus Christ is The ONE - and did all things commanded of Him, by His Father - in His Name (or person) when upon the earth, unto the salvation and exaltation of man.

It IS the Great Jehovah of the Old Testament, who IS Jesus Christ of the New Testament; that has set His pattern of HOW a prophet of God, or the ONE that He has called to administer His Gospel upon the earth; by His authority, IS called.

This authority, that is referred to, is called the Holy Priesthood of God. (Please refer to this article, that goes into more detail about the Priesthood and how this authority is received and also how it functions in the LDS Church.)

The Prophet Moses Led The Children of Israel Out of Harm And On Towards Safety....

It was the unified faith in God, of the children of Israel - that they were willing to go into the wilderness with Moses.
It was the unified faith in God, of the children of Israel - that they were willing to go into the wilderness with Moses.

The Mark of the true Church of Jesus Christ, is that although there are many - 'they' will be ONE.

God's chosen people are a righteous people. They are righteous, because they choose to keep the commandments. Not of themselves perfect by any means... but do receive Him. They utilize the power of the atoning sacrifice of Jesus Christ; to retain a remission of their sins; through continually seeking forgiveness - by repenting of those things that would drive out the Spirit in their lives.

We believe, that the Gift of the Holy Ghost - is bestowed by an ordinance - which is given, after an individual receives the ordinance of Baptism; and becomes a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day-Saints.

The Covenant of Baptism, is that WE promise to keep ALL of God's commandments - and He then, promises us -- that IF we do so WILLINGLY; then - His Father will send us the Gift of the Holy Ghost; to be our constant companion for the rest of our walk through life.

The Message of the Good News...

To Be Of One Heart And One Mind... Is Unity.

Therefore, it is absolutely anticipated that each individual member will eventually gain their own testimony of the truths that are taught in the LDS Church, through faith in Jesus Christ.

The advantage of keeping His laws, by a covenant; allow us citizenship into His Kingdom - and when we keep the laws of the land - we are richly blessed because of that obedience to law; by evidence of His Promise -- that is only given to those who keep His laws - and is a palpable witness of all truths - which cannot be mistaken and is-- the Spirit of the Holy Ghost.

  • Thereby - FAITH in Jesus Christ, increases.

The Savior taught - that by their fruits, ye could know the children of God. The fruits of the spirit are many - but UNITY is the ONE, which the adversary can neither duplicate nor dispute!

How then -- Does a Prophet know that he is the chosen ONE, who has been called of God?

First of all... because Jesus Christ has set the pattern for the succession of His President or The Living Prophet - who hold all of the Keys of the Holy Priesthood upon the earth - and is the only ONE that does so; when that man finds himself - by the HAND of Providence in that position of succession to a previous 'ONE' -

He KNOWS!

  • That is his first witness-- but it is also our first witness.

I believe personally, that it is the second witness, that is the most convincing to the soul;

which is -- the UNITY of the Latter-Day-Saints. This is clear evidence of the fruits of the Spirit - - as he is received by the membership; which have been given that SURE and peaceful witness - that his call IS the WILL of God!

Jesus Christ Came to Bless Us.... As Do His Prophets Today.

A Promise From God, Like No Other In History...

It is hard task, to put into simple words, this UNITY that dwells deeply in the hearts of the LDS people. We are of ONE Faith, of ONE Baptism and of ONE HEART, which is given by the Gift and Power of The Holy Ghost -- to each individual member of the Church, who SEEKS this gift.

This is a MIRACLE - today, that the world is witnessing, IF they choose to see it. I pray that many will.

It is a marvelous sign for believers and non-believers as well.

The Church of Jesus Christ is HIS Church, here upon the earth in this the Latter Day. We are The Latter-Day-Saints - of- The Church of Jesus Christ.

  • His Church, must bear His Name.

Once again -- is imperative that each member of the Mormon Church, receive the testimony of a LIVING PROPHET here upon the earth; who then is authorized to act in the Name of Jesus Christ.

Therefore, God Himself has given a promise like no other in the history of the world.

For those who will receive the Book of Mormon, read it - ponder upon it prayerfully; and then come to HIM and ASK HIM -- He then, PROMISES that He will give it to you - to know, that the Book of Mormon is TRUE - by the Gift and Power of God - unto the convincing you -- of its truth. And He is happy to give this witness to all those who are sincere.

The Book of Mormon was brought forth by the Power of God, through the prophet, Joseph Smith Jr. It is he, whom God has chosen in this last day, to bring about the restoration of the Gospel of Jesus Christ; and is His authorized servant - who organized on His behalf and under His direction -- the Kingdom of God upon the earth in these latter-days.

I personally, have a firm testimony of the calling of Joseph Smith Jr. as His authorized servant. The fruits of Joseph Smith, are that he brought forth the Book of Mormon, and he is the prophet of the restoration of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day-Saints; with all of the Priesthood Power and Keys - that allow for eternal truths and ordinances; to be revealed and administered to the world today, in the Name of Jesus Christ.

Once these understandings have been made known, it becomes as no surprise, that the name of Joseph Smith Jr.-- is had for both good and evil in this world, as it was foretold that he would be. Those of the like, be they good or bad... will see this prophet of God - as such.

This opposition towards the work of Jesus Christ will continue to increase in the earth until Jesus Christ comes again, to - Himself - set all things in order, directly. I suppose we could look at it as a bit of house cleaning.

The "PROMISE" - as recorded in the Book of Mormon...

Moroni Chapter 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
Moroni Chapter 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

The One...

What Is True Christianity And How Can We Recognize It?

The purpose for the 'ONE' - who is the President and also considered to be the ‘only’ ONE, authorized by Jesus Christ to act in His Name -- is, that His Church - may be known as 'One'.

The President of the LDS Church is appointed to be the “ONE", so that The Church of Jesus Christ will be as "one" - in doctrine, in faith, and in Jesus Christ.

The mark of the true Church of Jesus Christ, is that although there are many - 'they' will be ONE.

The doctrine of ONE, is beautifully taught, when the Lord - Himself - prayed to our Father - in our behalf -- that we too, may be ONE -- EVEN as He and the Father are ONE. The Savior of the world declared boldly, that He did nothing, save the Father had commanded HIM!

The UNITY, that is accomplished through the Spirit -- is nothing less, than a miracle - when you consider the divisiveness that 'could' exist in the minds and hearts of the LDS people; and any group for that matter.

On the contrary though -- it is profound evidence, in my personal opinion - of the fact, that this gift of the Spirit is truly manifest in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day-Saints - in Power.

He Is - the Living Christ

Of Whom The Prophets - Today, Testify That He Lives!
Of Whom The Prophets - Today, Testify That He Lives!

The Empty Tomb...

For He IS Risen!
For He IS Risen!

A Personal Witness Of Jesus Christ... Yes - Today!

I think a fair and reasonable question needs to be answered here --

For what or Who, could possibly produce this kind of UNITY - amongst so many different members in this Church of over thirteen MILLION Latter-Day-Saints? Jesus Christ, is He -- and only through His Spirit, which The Father has given to all those who receive by covenant, His Son... can be -- the only possible explanation to such an accomplishment.

A prophet knows he is a prophet, because He is called by Jesus Christ to be a prophet. To be an Apostle of the Lord, is to have the sure witness that Jesus Christ lives... still today; and then bear witness of this reality to all the world.

The Apostles in the days of Jesus Christ, following His crucifixion, were blessed after he arose from the tomb - to see Him, touch Him, and even sit at a meal with Him, in His perfectly resurrected body, of flesh and bones. Thus, they did testify...

He tutored them for many days, teaching them all things that were necessary to bring others unto Him.

That this same Jesus Christ who was born, was crucified for the sins of the world; and then miraculously - for they were personal witnesses of this truth - was lifted up from the tomb unto life again - never to have death overcome Him again... for He has overcome this world.

John 3:16 the Prophets so Testify Today!

Bible New Testament - Mathew Chapter 16

13 ¶ When Jesus came into the coasts of Caesarea Philippi, he asked his disciples, saying, Whom do men say that I the Son of man am?

14 And they said, Some say that thou art John the Baptist: some, Elias; and others, Jeremias, or one of the prophets.

15 He saith unto them, But whom say ye that I am?

16 And Simon Peter answered and said, Thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God.

17 And Jesus answered and said unto him, Blessed art thou, Simon Bar-jona: for flesh and blood hath not revealed it unto thee, but my Father which is in heaven.

18 And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.

19 And I will give unto thee the keys of the kingdom of heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.

Prophets Come, To Witness Of Him - In His Name...

Today, those called as Prophets, Seers and Revelators... have the same testimony that is necessary to be considered chosen of the Lord, to witness in His Name, with such powerful conviction.

These individuals are normal men, plucked out of the world - when the Lord beckons them. No one, seeks these positions in the Church. Man does not extend these callings to the self, but they come directly from God, through His chosen servants. It is expected when Jesus Christ appoints an Apostle - that it will be made known to the entire Church MEMBERSHIP, that it is His will.

Thus, the recent call of a new President, who is now, the ONE -- was somewhat pentecostal for the Latter-Day-Saints - as a people; for the Spirit of God was made manifest in the hearts of millions of individuals - in the quiet and powerful way; which the Spirit of God is able to communicate with.

In some new ways, I hope that your understanding of this 'phenomenon' amongst the Latter-Day-Saints, is more clear to you. And, I love these types of questions and never consider them contentious or with ill intent.

I would ask the same questions myself... in fact, I did.

I understand that this is the only way that a church could be unified, with the help of God, through a person called by God. I know Thomas S. Monson is the man who is called by God.


sandra rinck 8 years ago

I give to the world myself as a sacrife and testament of God and in the same spirit as Jesus Christ, that there will be peace when all religions will turn thier eyes straight up to God before Jesus Christ, then will you be given the blood of Christ. As the Father was most important to Jesus, then we too shall make God the most important and next to God, make man most important because there is no room for self, and then you will know that Jesus Christ came to bring you to God, not unto himself. When one realizes this, you can speak in the soul of Jesus Christ, thus you will become Jesus Christ. Jesus said that you do not live by the laws of man.

These chosen prophets represent a distinction between brothers (inequality), when Jesus said, " do not bow down, I am just like you. Brothers and sisters we are all one in the same. To move away from religion is the hardest test of faith one can endure in fear of God, but dont be afraid, God knows all that you do and for what reasons and fear should have never taken the place of Love.

sandra -

(apologies from the beginning as I became 'cap happy' in this epistle.... but I am very passionate in this TRUTH that I testify to you of here:-)

We are so very much at 'one' - on so many things, EXCEPT the ONE thing, that I personally believe and know with all of my heart; and this is, that Jesus Christ Himself, organized HIS Church when HE was upon the earth physically in exactly the WAY that THE Father commanded Him to DO SO...

The GREATEST EXAMPLE of JESUS CHRIST was NOT the atonement -- BUT it WAS 'HOW' and 'THE WAY' that he SHOWED US How to COME UNTO HIM... so that WE would know the WAY to the FATHER...

HE WAS AND IS THE WAY - IT IS ONLY BY HIM AND THROUGH HIM that we can COME UNTO THE FATHER... this is the Power of the ATONEMENT.

HE WAS THE EPITOME OF OBEDIENCE - HE IS OBEDIENCE ITSELF.

HE DID NOTHING OF HIMSELF... 'SAVE' THE FATHER COMMANDED HIM... AND AS HE 'MARKED' THE WAY (TOKENS TO SHOW OBEDIENCE)

'THE WAY' WAS 'IN' HIS WILLINGNESS TO 'PUT OFF THE NATURAL MAN' AND SUBMIT TO GOD -- AUTHORITY!

THEREFORE - HE SET-UP HIS CHURCH, UNDER HIS AUTHORITY AND GIVEN TO 'MAN' (PETER AND THE TWELVE - FORTHCOMING HUB)

THE KEYS OF THE PRIESTHOOD OF GOD - OR 'RIGHT' TO ACT IN HIS NAME - EVEN JESUS CHRIST.

Jesus Christ is the great TYPE for all of US, and He has marked the way, and set the pattern that HE was commanded HIMSELF to Follow and NOW AS YOU SAID...

THAT WE MAY BE ONE, WITH HIM... AS HE IS ONE WITH THE FATHER - WE TOO, 'MUST' SUBMIT TO AUTHORITY ... but NOT the authority of the SELF...

IF WE CLAIM TO WORSHIP GOD... WHAT KIND OF FEAR ARE YOU EMBRACING WHEN YOU MOVE AWAY FROM HIS DIVINE PATTERN?

THERE IS NO PLACE IN ALL OF SCRIPTURE THAT I AM AWARE OF THAT PERPETUATES THIS STEPPING AWAY...

UNTO THE WORSHIP OF THE SELF... JESUS CHRIST IS THE LAW - MEANING HE MADE THE LAW, WHICH LAW IS GOD THE FATHER'S LAW, WHICH HE THEN...

SUBMITTED TO 'WILLINGLY' MEANING BY PERSONAL 'CHOICE'. WHICH WE TOO HAVE BEEN GIVEN BY HIM.

WE are the only CREATION that is ABLE to LITERALLY GOVERN OUR OWN LIFE AND HEART BY THIS MAGNIFICENT USE OF AGENCY OR CHOICE!

WHAT THE GREATEST GIFT that 'man', who is NOTHING, but has been GRANTED, BY GOD -- AGENCY... IS

OUR ABILITY TO 'GIVE' HIM BACK THE 'ONLY' THING IN AND OF THIS ENTIRE WORLD THAT WE ACTUALLY CAN 'CALL' OUR 'OWN' IS:

THE SUBMITTING TO HIS LAWS ( NOT OURS) HIS WILL/OUR WILL BECOMING ONE...

THIS IS THE GREAT ACT OF FAITH IN JESUS CHRIST - THAT YOU SPEAK OF...

NOT FAITH IN THE SELF AS YOU MOVE AWAY FROM GOD.... OPEN YOUR EYES... THAT IS

ADVERSARIAL TO 'MOVE AWAY AND UNTO THE SELF'!

'THE SELF', IS THE EPITOME OF THE 'DOCTRINE OF THE WORLD' OR

SELF-WORSHIP! OR SELF-IDOL-WORSHIP, AS I CALL IT.

Sandra - think very carefully of this independence that you profess...

There is NOTHING IN SCRIPTURE that perpetuates this move away from God *** that IS the Doctrines of APOSTASY.... (WHICH OCURRED FOLLOWING THE DEATH OF HIM AND HIS CHOSEN APOSTLES... THE PEOPLE

REJECTED HIS WORD THROUGH AND BY HIS PROPHETS... THEY ALWAYS HAVE)

We each must, LIKE CHRIST, THE PERFECT EXAMPLE...

FOLLOW HIM, WHO DID THAT WHICH WAS IMPOSSIBLE FOR US TO DO...

NONETHELESS... In the EXAMPLE that HE "SET" (his church)

HE SHOWED US 'WHAT' AND 'HOW' WE ARE TO 'FOLLOW HIM'...

THROUGH AND BY 'HIS CHOSEN SERVANTS'...

PLEASE DO A THOROUGH INVESTIGATION OF THE RELATIONSHIP OF HIS APOSTLES, SERVANTS OF GOD, GIVEN KEYS OF EARTHLY KINGDOM...

THAT WE MIGHT OBTAIN HIS HEAVENLY KINGDOM WHEREIN HE WILL ONCE AGAIN RULE UPON THE EARTH.

TO RULE IS TO HAVE DOMINION, IN PERFECTION... OVER ALL THOSE WHO WILL SUBMIT TO LAW...

IF THIS WERE NOT SO... GOD WOULD NEARLY BE CONSIDERED A GOD OF DOMINATION WHEN HE COMES....

HIS CHOSEN PEOPLE... CHOOSE THEMSELVES... BY SUBMITTING TO THEIR WILL -- TO HIS WILL,

THEREFORE, THEY ARE GIVEN TO HIM, OUT OF 'THE' WORLD....

THESE ARE THEY WHO WILL BE HIS... BECAUSE THEY CHOSE, AS DID HE .... TO SUBMIT TO GODLY AUTHORITY

OVER THE SELF-IDOL-WORSHIP THAT THE 'WORLD' TODAY PLACES ABOVE ALL ELSE...

IT IS A GRAVE MISTAKE... TO THINK THAT YOU OR WE OF OURSELVES KNOW BETTER HOW TO ...

COME UNTO CHRIST, IN OPPOSITION TO

HOW HE HAS SHOW US IN 'THE WAY' OR

IN THE NAME OF JESUS CHRIST.!

burt-flaxton,

Should I thank you? Have you turned completely from Christianity? I hope that, at least from what I feel you saying.. that it is the disillusionment of man that has offended you and not what Jesus Christ taught.

What He taught is true... what 'man' does to it is a complete other story, IMHO.

If at least you are true to the Savior, then you must consider taking UP His cross, in opposition to the majority.

Remember Burt... He was rejected by His own, and it was the minority that He consider to be His Friends.

Thanks for your input. I really like to know what others think... intelligently, and witty as well:-)

Have a great day.

He wasn't rejected by his own people; he was rejected by the Roman government. His people followed him like sheep. The cross... nothing more than a chosen icon by his indoctrinated years after his death. Crucifixion is nothing special; it was the system of punishment the Roman government used as the death penalty. Millions of people have been crucified Nana, and for a lot less hanus crimes than Jesus committed as a Jew.

Sandra -

Forgive me please... but I cannot approve your last post. Not for anything bad, or unacceptable by any means... but because - of the level of your kindness and dear words.

Truly overwhelming.

The experience that you have shared with me, has touched my heart so deeply. You are and always have been, 'innocence' before God.

Any attempt by anyone to cause you to feel differently -- I would say - is pure evil and a lack of accountability - which comes from, the need to blame.

I am enraged at the thought, that one would ever be blamed - as the source of an-other's own weakness.

I pray, that this would not be a burden that is carried by anyone in such circumstances...

That is certainly not, what Jesus Christ would teach... No other, is accountable to God, for anyone Else's errors in life, but each 'individual' must stand before God, for those choices that they alone - make - and the consequences thereof.

This I know to be a fact, as taught to me by the Living Prophets of God, today - whom He places upon the earth, to teach correct doctrine and testify that these truths are of HIM.

I am not teaching and discussing that which is of myself Sandra. I am only sharing that which I have been taught, by living prophets and testifies to me that these teachings are true, by the Holy Ghost.

If you are feeling anything that is right, it is not because I have said them, but it is because they are true... and I am not the 'source' of that truth.

He is.

I love you Sandra and I feel privileged to know you...

While I don't think you or I would agree with eachother on certain matters of religion (nor do I think we need to try and convince one another), I wanted to commend you on a beautiful hub.

It is so well organized, with lots of great imagery - and I always say that peoples' writing is much better when they are writing about a personal passion. I respect your faith and certainly see it shine through in your writing.

It is always wonderful to see someone willing to open up a dialogue and to converse w/ others who have different beliefs in a loving way. Great job!

Aren't there over 100 splinter groups that claim the Book of Mormon is correct and they are the ones that hold authority? Assuming that the unproveable BOM is correct, what is to say you have the correct prophet and not the RLDS, or the FLDS?

The fact that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints currently has over 14 million members and continues to grow based on the testimony that The Book of Mormon is true, is a pretty good indicator. "By their fruits ye shall know them..."

Hi, I enjoyed your hub!

Here in Ireland we were always taught to be wary of Mormons but I think it is just prejudice. There are some interesting concepts but I just do not know enough about religion to understand them all.
