Lost Truths

When God the Father and His Son, Jesus Christ, appeared to the boy, Joseph Smith, it was the start of  having the full Gospel of Jesus Christ on the earth, again. Truths that had been lost for hundreds of years were restored. And once again there was a prophet to lead God’s children.

When Christ was on the earth, he established the kingdom of God. He taught true principles and gave us the hope and faith to return to our Heavenly Father. He knew that his time on earth would be short. In order to maintain the principles that he taught, he called 12 apostles and gave them authority to teach and be mouthpieces for the will of God. (Ephesians 2:20, Ephesians 4:11)

After Christ was rejected and killed, his apostles continued in the faith. The taught correct principles and helped others come unto Christ and come closer to their Father in Heaven. Eventually the apostles were also rejected and killed. Once they were gone, there was no one to lead the Church that was established by Christ.

The Church that was established by Christ can be compared to a large mirror. This mirror is on the wall and is held up a nail and by twelve pieces of the strongest tape. Christ is the nail and after his death, that nail is removed. The twelve pieces of tape hold the mirror up. But one by one the apostles were killed and a piece of tape was ripped away from the mirror. Eventually all the apostles were rejected and killed. The mirror fell from the wall and shattered.

Even though the mirror was shattered, there were still good people who recognized the pieces of the mirror and the truth they contained. One group of people would gather a few pieces and build a church around and another group would gather a few different pieces and build a church around it.Other pieces of the mirror were crushed and lost. They all had pieces of the truth but not the full truth, not the full mirror.

When Joseph Smith prayed, he was asking what church was Christ’s church. He was answered that none of them were. (Isaiah 29:13) They had pieces of the truth, but not the full truth.( 2 Thessalonians 2:3) He was from that time forth prepared and molded to become a prophet of God. To restore the true and correct principles that Christ taught and to reestablish Christ’s Church once again upon the earth.
