Elder Kulu with Brenan, one of his buddies from the MTC
Faith in Jesus Christ is the first principle of the gospel of Jesus Christ and is the most important. Faith is hoping for things that are evident but are not seen. Faith is the point of why we are on the earth. Earth is a trial period, the Lord wants to see if we will choose to follow him, which will show are love for him. Do you love the Lord? That’s why the Lord gave us a new commandment in John 13: 34-35. This is what the whole purpose of our life is, to exercise FAITH IN JESUS CHRIST! All the blessing we can receive, are from this principle. If we have faith in Christ, it will lead to action. If you don’t believe in the church, your faith will lead you to SEARCH. If you don’t SEARCH you DONT HAVE FAITH. The Seventeen points of the true church, are found all over the bible, they are the blue print of the Church of Christ, from the BIBLE ITSELF.
1. Christ organized the Church (Ephesians 4:11-14)
2. The true church must bear the name of Jesus Christ (Ephesians 5:23)
3. The true church must have a foundation of Apostles and Prophets (Ephesians 2:19-20)
4. The true church must have the same organization as Christ’s Church (Ephesians 4:11-14)
5. The true church must claim divine authority (Hebrews 4:4-10)
6. The true church must have no paid ministry (Acts 20:33-34; John 10:11-13)
7. The true church must baptize by immersion (Matthew 3:13-16)
8. The true church must bestow the gift of the Holy Ghost by the laying on of hands (Acts 8:14-17)
9. The true church must practice divine healing (Mark 3:14-15)
10. The true church must teach that God and Jesus are separate and distinct individuals (John 17:11; 20:17)
11. The true church must teach that God and Jesus have bodies of flesh and bone (Luke 23:36-39; Acts 1:9-11; Hebrews 1:1-3)
12. The officers must be called by God (Hebrews 4:4; Exodus 28:1; 40:13-16)
13. The true church must claim revelation from God (Amos 3:7)
14. The true church must be a missionary church (Matthew 28:19-20)
15. The true church must be a restored church (Acts 3:19-20)
16. The true church must practice baptism for the dead (1 Corinthians 15:16&29)
17. “By their fruits ye shall know them.” (Matthews 7:20)
WE HAVE ALL OF THESE THINGS! It cant be more obvious, the Lord talks a lot about missionaries going and finding the ELECT in the D&C. Are you apart of that?
Elder Tad R. Callister talk on “What is the Blueprint of Christ Church?” spells it out.
Brothers and Sisters, SATAN IS REAL, HE IS OUT TO BRING YOU DOWN TO THE DEPTHS OF HELL. BE NOT PRIDEFUL! ETERNAL LIFE IS AT STAKE! (Eternal life is living with god eternally happy with our families forever)(immortality is just living for ever, which will happen to everyone, but does not mean u will be happy, in FACT I KNOW YOU WON’T BE HAPPY). FAMILY ALL OF YOU, whether you are a friend of mine, an acquaintance, or maybe I do not even know you, if you are reading this, I want you to know that God has restored his church to the Earth. God is the same today, yesterday, and forever! THEREFORE, he STILL gives REVELATION, through MODERN DAY PROPHETS. “By their fruits ye shall know them”. I Testify that faith in Jesus Christ will lead to sincere repentance, baptism, receiving the gift the Holy Ghost and enduring to the end. Go listen to Elder Tad R. Callister’s talk. If you are a member or not, it is for all to see, if they have the faith to look. In the name of Jesus Christ, Amen.
