Teachings of Presidents of the Church: Joseph Fielding Smith Chapter 9
When life is out of balance, focusing primarily on work or my own interests then it becomes harder to naturally witness to others about Christ, because it is not in our countenance.
The three witnesses had an angelic witness. The eight had a physical witness. We have a logical and spiritual witness. Each is a unique perspective and a unique tool to bring others to Christ.
Old Testament Manual Chapter 17
Moses and several of the old testament prophets did not taste death, but were translated. They became immortal, but were not resurrected because Christ had not yet been resurrected, but they had more work to do that rewired a physical body, but needed to not be sick or old.
The writer of Deuteronomy didn't know what happened to Moses and assumed he was dead and that the Lord had buried him.
When we make time for the essential things, the Lord will make time for the rest.
