The Inspiration of the Last Days

Updated on May 20, 2015

Who we really are in these Last Days

These are the last days, the times we knew would come. Long ago, before we were born, we were part of Christ's plan of happiness, and fought to come to earth. We also knew that we would come down at one of the most difficult times in the history of the earth. But where we knew that wickedness would abound, we promised to wield the sword of righteousness, and stand for what is right, to follow the spirit and be strong in our convictions.

The Inspiration of the Last Days

The things happening in America and around the world are alarming. The last days are here, and every time we turn around, there is another war. Christians are being made fun of, denigrated, persecuted, and even killed the world over. Racial tensions are worse than they have ever been. As a people as a whole we are more fragmented than we have never been. 83 percent of the Population are Christian, but those who believe in traditional Christian values are made fun of in the media and silenced in the workplace for fear of losing jobs, and fear that their words may offend those who have the ear of the media and the courts right now.

These are the last days, the times we knew would come. Long ago, before we were born, we were part of Christ's plan of happiness, and fought to come to earth. We also knew that we would come down at one of the most difficult times in the history of the earth. But where we knew that wickedness would abound, we promised to wield the sword of righteousness, and stand for what is right, to follow the spirit and be strong in our convictions.

We were held in reserve for these last days, even as Mormon and Moroni were held for their days, even as Joseph Smith and the early saints were held in reserve to come in their day, so we were held in reserve to come in these last days and bear off the kingdom of God Triumphantly. God is at the Helm of this great work. It is as Joseph Smith said

“The Standard of Truth has been erected; no unhallowed hand can stop the work from progressing; persecutions may rage, mobs may combine, armies may assemble, calumny may defame, but the truth of God will go forth boldly, nobly, and independent, till it has penetrated every continent, visited every clime, swept every country, and sounded in every ear, till the purposes of God shall be accomplished, and the Great Jehovah shall say the work is done” (History of the Church, 4:540).

We are a part if the Lord's Royal Army, sent here to live lives of purity, and if we haven't to repent, turn to him, and to become what we were born to be. And as we do, we will gain a crown of glory on high, and will be able to return to the presence of God with our families, to rule and reign forever.

We are sons and daughters of a King, with royal birthrights, sent to learn about how to love others as the King of Kings and Lord of Lords did. We are not sent to learn about our place in this world, but to remember the place we had before it, and to set our sights on the eternal prize. In so doing we will be able to create opportunities to invite people to come experience the spiritual experiences we have had both in this life and before we came here.

As Believers in Christ, we have a place here in the work of the Lord. May we remember that all that is happening in the world was foretold, and that as we stand strong in the Faith, we become who we were meant to be, who our Father in Heaven, wants us to be. He knows perfectly who we can become, and thanks to the Atonement of the Savior, we can become that.

May we all remember who we are.
