To Be One, In Heart & Mind

To Become Zion

Consider this quote from Elder Dieter F. Uchdorf, of The Quorum of the Twelve Apostles of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. As you do, keep in mind that another name for the Holy Ghost is, the Comforter.

“The Latin source of the word COMFORTER— com fortis—means “TOGETHER STRONG.” As the Holy Ghost visits your own spirit, you become stronger than you are by yourself. When you receive the Holy Ghost, you receive strength, power, peace, and comfort.” Elder Dieter F. Uchdorf.

I would also add that the Gift of the Holy Ghost, as an added enhancement to the lives of Latter-Day Saints, would, as we live up to these privileges together, make us even stronger as a collective whole, even as the body of Christ. In other words, of one heart, and one mind. An added sealing upon our heads, in and of the covenant of the First Born: together strong.

Shiftless Core
One heart, one mind,
Making music, divine.
One battle, one beat,
All gather in one to defeat!

It’s time to be bold,
And not overbearing,
To help bring forth light,
And healing to the world.

Remember the One,
With the shiftless core,
Our reminder,
Of who we always need to be.

Where ever we go,
And whoever we see,
We share love,
For His glory!

United in beat, and thought,
We’re not going to stop,
Because we are of one heart, one mind,
Making sweet music divine.

It won’t be enough,
To just believe, we must fight,
To overcome the foe,
With power from the Holy Ghost.

Come now, let’s win,
As we are unified in,
One heart, one mind,
Worthy of the divine.

It’s about how we live,
That we love and give,
Unified in one beat, and thought,
Now let’s spread the rock!

We are of one heart, one mind,
With one beat, divine, united in,
One purpose, and mission,
With a shiftless core, let’s give all to Him!

Praying Without Ceasing

By Being Perfect In Christ,
We Can Obey All God’s Commandments

In the Lord’s church we are told to pray without ceasing. How? By living with the constant companionship of The Gift of the Holy Ghost. To be in continual communion with the Father, through His Son Jesus Christ, and The Holy Ghost. 

As the Holy Ghost is a revelator, and revelation is communication, our communication with our Father, is as we commune with Him our thoughts, feelings and prayers.

To have a continual flow of revelation from Him, through His Son, who is the only true source and light of the world, we must have The Gift of the Holy Ghost to always be with us. This is only found and acquired in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, for it is different than just having the influence of the Holy Spirit, as all can have.

There are only two sources, as is discussed in my post Ones and Zeros: Part One, in which there can be good, better and best for example, or bad worse and worst. Having this great revelatory power from God, we can learn great things about Him and His kingdom, and receive guidance, promptings and the understanding of His will. We can also avoid all deceptions and pitfalls.

To have such a gift always, we must first have the sacred priesthood ordinances of baptism and confirmation of The Gift of the Holy Ghost performed upon us. This is to be done through those who hold the proper priesthood power and authority. These gifts are then bestowed upon us, true and efficacious. It is an extra and added power of the Holy Ghost, wherein we can also always “have His Spirit to be with us,” provided we live worthily of Him.

To be partakers of this, we must understand the promises we make, obey the Lord, and live to the very best of our knowledge and ability. We can then be truly guided, thus fulfilling the commandment to truly pray without ceasing.
