Church Services This Week at Sullivan Hollow Second Ward Weber Heights Stake Ogden Utah 3-21-10

2 Nephi 32:3
  3 aAngels speak by the power of the Holy Ghost; wherefore, they speak the words of Christ. Wherefore, I said unto you,bfeast upon the cwords of Christ; for behold, the words of Christ will dtell you all things what ye should do.

The Fall of Adam and Eve
1 Corinthians 11:11
 11 Nevertheless neither is the aman without the woman, neither the bwoman without the man, in the Lord.

Eating the fruit brought about death to mankind.  Physical death and spiritual death.  Adam, Eve, and their posterity would all die, separating their bodies from their spirits (physical death).  They would also no longer walk and talk face to face with God (spiritual death).

How can we give thanks to the lord for gifts?  Use then.  After each successful use, give thanks.

Joseph first asked for his brethren to bring Benjamin who was Joseph's brother from the same parents.

Some temples look like fortresses. the temple is to be a stronghold for righteousness.

From the Bulletin
"I feel in my heart that we grow financially, spiritually, and in every way, as Latter-day Saints, by doing our duty. When we are obedient to the commandments of the Lord and generous with our time and our means, we grow in the spirit and testimony of the gospel, and I do not believe that we are ever poorer financially. I am a firm believer that the Lord opens up the windows of heaven when we do our duty financially and pours out upon us blessings of a spiritual nature, which are of far greater value than temporal things. But I believe He also gives us blessings of a temporal nature.." -- Gospel Standards, p.297, President Heber J. Grant

"Stand As a Witness by Sustaining the Living Prophets."
As you think of the word sustaining, ask yourself this question: Is sustaining the living prophets different from having a testimony that we have prophets? When we sustain, it means we do something about our belief. Our testimony of the prophet turns into action when we sustain him.

Elder David B. Haight said: "When we sustain the President of the Church by our uplifted hand, it not only signifies that we acknowledge before God that he is the rightful possessor of all the priesthood keys; it means that we covenant with God that we will abide by the direction and the counsel that comes through His prophet. It is a solemn covenant" President Hinckley said "The procedure of sustaining is much more than a ritualistic raising of the hand. It is a commitment to uphold, to support, to assist those who have been selected".

Think of playing a violin, if it is in tune you can move the bow across one string and the other strings vibrate. The harmonious strings not only help sustain the sound, but they enlarge and carry the sound.
As each of us listens to the prophet and responds to his message, if we are in tune we can carry his message with us. Others will feel the prophet's message because of the way we act. In this way the message doesn't end—it just begins.
