Come Listen to A Prophet’s Voice

October 2, 2010 at 2:42 pm 2 comments

In ancient times God always spoke to his children through a prophet, his mouthpiece on earth. A prophet was a man called of God and chosen to declare God’s word among his people. If the people listened to the prophet they were blessed. If they choose not to listen to a prophet they suffered the consequences. A classic example is of Noah. Noah was called of God. He was commanded to build an ark. Those people who listen to Noah, got on the ark and lived. Those who didn’t, missed the boat and drowned.

So if God spoke to his people in ancient times via a prophet, wouldn’t it make sense that he would do the same today. The Book of Mormon speaks of a time when people would say that God cares no more about his children and that they would deny his power(2 Nephi 28:5-6). Those who say that God no longer speaks to his children today and there is no more prophets are wrong. God does speak and he speaks through living prophets.

God speaks today through a living prophet. That living prophet is Thomas S. Monson. He has been called and chosen by God to be his mouthpiece. To speak to the people what they need to hear. Every six months there is a General Conference. At this conference the prophet speaks and tells us what God wants us to know.

We then have a very important job. It is up to us to take what we have learned and ask God. Ask God if it is truly his word. If this man is truly a prophet today. If he is, then what he says is vitally important. We also have a heavy responsibility. When we receive an answer we need to act on it and do what God has told us to do. God will never ask of us anything that we can not accomplish with his help (1 Nephi 3:7).

So to learn if there is a prophet today watch General Conference. It starts on October 2 & 3 at 10:00 a.m. MST and 2:00 p.m. MST. Click here to watch General Conference.

    Thanks for sharing your wonderful thoughts about conference. I found your blog through a comment by your sister on facebook and I’ve linked it to mine so I can follow the wonderful message you’re sharing. I’m going to share your address with the sisters in our home ward so they can share it with others as well. Thanks for sharing the gospel. Love Sis. Young

    Well said – It is wonderful to have a living prophet on the earth today that warns us, teaches us and blesses our lives.
