    Enjoyed your blog immensely– quotes are rich:
    “All those who were ordained unto this priesthood… shall speak as they are moved upon by the Holy Ghost. And… shall be the will of the Lord… the mind of the Lord… the word of the Lord… the voice of the Lord and the power of God unto salvation… this is the promise of the Lord unto you… And unto you it shall be given to know the signs of the times, and the signs of the coming of the Son of Man; And of as many as the Father shall bear record, to you shall be given power to seal them up unto eternal life. Amen.” D&C 68: 2-12

    Yes, brother, Amen.

    Many interesting insights… what do you think of the three groups mentioned near the end of D&C 49?
