Per the General Handbook of Instructions, we members have three official options for healing: (1) competent medical help, (2) exercising faith and (3) priesthood blessings.While there is a place for diagnosis and treatment by competent, licensed medical practitioners, we both know modern medicine has its fair share of shortcomings which, as the scr…
 
On Friday April 9 2021, I awoke in the morning from a sound night's sleep with a strange word in my head:It took me a few minutes to Google this word and find out what it meant, but when I did, a whole new dimension of the Gift of Healing opened up to me...
 
A little over nine years since its first article "Symphonies," LDS Perfect Day's 240+ blog posts have helped tens of thousands worldwide to elevate their relationship with the Savior of the world. As a result, they have cast aside the traditions of men, enabling them to better hear His voice, hearken to His words and enjoy a life far more transcend…
 
It is so amazing to know that through anything we go through, and through anything that happens, we can hold on to Yeshua. We can be assured by his words that say we'll be OK. There is nothing else in this whole world that has that reassurance. There is nothing else that we can hold onto with our lives besides Yeshua. His hand is holding all of our…
 
If you'll recall, Yeshua never condemned the woman at the well. He never condemned the woman caught in adultery. He never, ever said, "Well, read these scrolls and come see me weekly for six months, then we'll see if you're sufficiently repentant enough." No. Did you read what I just wrote? HE DIDN'T CONDEMN THEM!Yet today, we allow ourselves to ca…
 
Our nations are murdering babies, boldly challenging sexual and even gender-based norms, stamping out not only Christianity but also religion, morals and ethics. And the priesthood is increasingly powerless to stop it.So, what has God done historically when mankind defiantly chooses evil over good?He sends us warnings.We've had two so far. Listen t…
 
As we embark on this series of posts/podcasts regarding the Gift of Healing, I thought I should let you in on a little-known fact:These blog posts, these podcasts, are simply the opening stanzas of a beautful discussion on this profound gift. They are, to use an analogy, just the"tip of the iceberg."The *real* discussion, where some *real* meaty co…
 
This year, LDS Perfect Day will focus most of its posts on one thing: the Gift of Healing. Here’s what you can expect in the weeks and months to come as we present perhaps the most comprehensive examination of this gift found anywhere on the internet:* Why there’s an urgent, critical need for the Gift of Healing...more so than at any other time in …
 
For every truly-pronounced prophecy, there are usually many, many more false ones. I mean, these are the last days! Why expect anything else?Over the last few months, we've been exposed to quite a few prophecies about President Trump's "sure" and "certain" inauguration. And as of this minute, they were all proven wrong. Biden, not Trump, was inaugu…
 
This last fall, I spent dozens of hours listening to these recordings and doing extensive research into the life of Yeshua. As a result, I feel far more familiar with Him. He is more real to me than ever before. I know there are many who choose to just be satisfied with knowing only the four gospels and 3rd Nephi accounts of Yeshua. But if you trul…
 
The scriptures are very consistent: If you wanna meet God, it may be on the top of a mountain. Unfortunately, the path to that peak is filled with valleys -- ones which may require you to sacrifice your health, your reputation, your relationship with your family, friends, co-workers and ward members -- in fact, anything and everything -- to know Hi…
 
What’s the greatest blessing one can receive in this life?That’s a question I wondered about, and asked others, my whole life. The answers have been fairly consistent: “Calling and Election”, “Seeing Jesus” or “Second Comforter”.But over the years, I’ve come to discover that there’s a blessing that’s higher than these. It seems to happen only to th…
 
As your relationship with God continues to develop, you may eventually be confronted with a thought:“Invite Father, Mother and Yeshua into your home.”When this is combined with real intent, nothing wavering, and many of the “Formal Prayer” concepts elaborated in my previous post, you’ll discover that this is no ordinary request. It is spirit-inspir…
 
I invite you to disregard any statements which increase the distance between you and God. Always remember that God wishes to converse with you as one man converses with another. I also invite you to do what Yeshua, and his prophets both ancient and modern have advised us to do: Stay in touch with Him continually, throughout the day. True, there may…
 
We don't hear very much about people who walked and talked with God. Sure, there are accounts of this happening in the scriptures. But these anecdotes about people, places and times that are foreign to us.Yet three facts remain. First, God isn't silent. Not by a long shot. Second, He speaks to all of us, especially regardless of gender or church ca…
 
Here, let’s try an experiment. I want you to say “I AM”, and then your name. Maybe “I AM Sharon” or ‘I am Chris.” See? Before you say your name, you must first say His name. So it’s two names, always. That’s pretty cool.Even when you say “I AM a mother” or “I AM a dad” or “I AM a grocery store clerk” or “I AM a secretary,” it always starts with His…
 
It seems to me that what the world calls wisdom is vastly different than what God considers wisdom. Divine wisdom, which comes directly from God, is different than intellectual knowledge:* Man's intellect can physically save a life, but not a soul.* Man's intellect can reach the moon and other planets, but not heaven.* Man's intellect can help brin…
 
As we read in the previous two posts (”The Best Friend You Never Knew Part 7: ‘Ye Never Knew Me’” and ”The Best Friend You Never Knew Part 8: The Non-Judgmental Savior”), we stand rejected by Yeshua the minute we withhold mercy, or unleash judgment, upon another (see here for more). Also, the more merciful you are towards others, the more merciful …
 
“WOMEN in Jesus’ day weren’t treated well. Understatement. They had few choices, held no positions, and were often considered less valuable than the men.But not to Jesus.The adulterous woman was caught in the act and dragged to Jesus for judgement. But He called her accusers hypocrites, dispersed the crowd, and extended her grace.The bleeding woman…
 
Despite whatever callings, titles, covenants, number of dead baptized, amount of tithes and fast offerings paid -- no matter what earthly things you’ve done, if you haven’t been charitable, you’re not bound for heaven, but hell. I know there are some who might say, “Well hey, I paid my fast offering. I’ve been charitable. So you can just go right a…
 
Around 1528 BC, at the stroke of midnight, God visited the last of the ten plagues on the Egyptians, killing all their firstborn. While doing so, God also spared the children of Israel, “passing over” their homes—hence the name of the holiday, "Passover."Ironically, tomorrow begins the Jewish holiday of Passover, an annual commemoration of the firs…
 
Who among us has the faith to do as Jesus did: to bless as He blessed...even those considered the most physically and spiritually unclean and diseased among us?Might I suggest that what the Lord is truly asking of His disciples these days isn’t just fear, and believe it or not, it’s not just faith. It’s superfaith -- the kind the Brother of Jared h…
 
"Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father." (John 14:12)Are you a disciple of Jesus Christ? The Savior’s miracles were real. His promise to those who believe in Him are just as real: YOU can do the same and even greater works …
 
The scriptures also give us some insight into Yeshua’s personality. On both sides of the world, Yeshua said, “I am the light of the world” (John 8:12; 3 Nephi 9:18).Now, when I hear that someone’s the light of the world, I don’t envision someone who’s dark, gloomy, moody, always depressed, despondent, low-spirited or sad. Neither would He be emotio…
 
Imagine a religion in which there are no scriptures. Absolutely no discussion of ordinances like baptism, confirmation, sacrament, priesthood advancement, baptism of the dead, initiatories, endowments, sealings. No explanations of garments.Imagine zero evidence of spiritual gifts and personal revelation. No testimonies. No personal inspirational st…
 
Jesus was probably never called Jesus in His life. Although it’s not 100% certain, it’s highly likely He had a given name in Aramaic that approximates Yeshua -- the name which His family and friends, prosecutors and defenders, called Him.There’s no doctrine, no policy, which requires you to refer to Him as Yeshua or Jesus. I suspect He doesn't have…
 
Draw near unto Him. Seek Him, spiritually, with your eye of faith. Everything is first created spiritually, then temporally. The same holds true for frequent, meaningful experiences with Jesus to where you can “know for a certainty the character of God.”After weeks, months and years of doing just this, you’ll likely develop a far greater realizatio…
 
If you sincerely wish a personal experience with the Savior (“If any man will come after me”), then humble yourself enough to heed Jesus’s advice: Take yourself out of the equation (“deny himself”). Because truth be told, we’re ALL a bunch of prodigals. Make sure your reasons for seeing the Savior don’t include a first-person pronoun.It all starts …
 
NOTE: This post's title illustrates to what extent we've deleted or minimized Jesus from our church, not that a new church is being formed. Much has been written, stated, drawn, painted, sculpted and filmed about our Savior.I dare say that at no time in the history of mankind have we had so much knowledge about Jesus at our fingertips. We can go to…
 
The first step in solving a problem is recognizing you have one. And we, as a people, have lost our way when it comes to casting out evil. True: We never hear about it in General Conference. We never read about it in the Ensign or New Era. We never see books about it for sale in Deseret Book.Yet we are also told in D&C 58:27-29 that we should be an…
 
“We live in a wicked world. Never in our memory have the forces of evil been arrayed in such deadly formation. The devil is well organized. Never in our day has he had so many emissaries working for him.” (Pres. Ezra Taft Benson, “Satan’s Thrust: Youth,” Ensign, Dec, 1971).(Pres. Benson made those remarks 48 years ago. I can only imagine what he’d …
 
There are members of the restored church who believe that we can make friends with evil / unholy / impure spirits. They privately teach that we can chit chat with them, council with them, have a court of love with them, forgive them, establish a relationship of trust with them, then send them to the light where they can learn the gospel, accept it …
 
In the Pearl of Great Price, we read of God giving the seed of the woman (Eve) the ability to crush Satan’s head: “And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, between thy seed and her seed; and he shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel.” (Genesis 3:21 JST) “And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, between thy seed and …
 
2,000 years ago, Christ overcame the deepest, darkest depths of hell and claimed victory over Satan. Today, he beckons you to follow in His footsteps. Yes, Satan can bruise your heels, but God also invites you to join Him in crushing Satan’s head. Indeed, God’s victories can be yours as well.Over the years, it’s been my privilege to know many who h…
 
These four scriptures -- Mark 16:17, Mormon 9:24, D&C 35:8-9 and D&C 84:65-67 -- are the only ones which definitively identify who can cast out devils. All four say the same thing: believers.Now, my next question is, are believers in Jesus only limited to men? Of course not. The scriptures, the church and even your local fast and testimony meeting …
 
Are you judgmental of others because they aren’t what you think they should be, or don’t do things as you believe?Do you self-justify liking thoughts which are incongruent with gospel truths because, after all, it’s a friend who’s saying them?Is church attendance and church activity an accurate method to determine worthiness? Should we be contempla…
 
Most New Testament scholars agree that "poor in spirit" does not mean lacking in spirit, be it courage, the Holy Ghost or religious awareness. Instead, it is that poverty is not only a physical condition, but also a spiritual one. Such true, undefiled humility is absolutely genuine and unlike it's identical counterfeit, "spiritual pride." How can y…
 
“Karma” is Buddhist/Hindu concept that states the way you live your life will affect you. It’s the spiritual principle of cause and effect, where the intent and actions of an individual influences the future of that individual. It’s perhaps the ultimate form of “what goes around, comes around.” or even "poetic justice."There is a concept in Judaism…
 
“We are, on the whole, an idolatrous people -- a condition most repugnant to the Lord.” (President Spencer W. Kimball, “The False Gods We Worship,” First Presidency Message, Ensign, June 1976, p. 6).President Kimball wrote those words in 1976...to and about we members of the church. That’s right: He wrote them to you and me.We haven’t heard much ab…
 
"But with some I am not well pleased, for they will not open their mouths, but they hide the talent which I have given unto them, because of the fear of man. Wo unto such, for mine anger is kindled against them." (D&C 60:2)Of this scripture, President Spencer W. Kimball said,"The Lord says in the 60th section of the Doctrine and Covenants, ‘With so…
 
Why do we constantly see those who have taken upon themselves the name of Jesus Christ judging and condemning others? Where do we read in the scriptures that we're justified, that it's OK, to spread rumors and speak ill of others behind their backs?If Jesus didn't judge and condemn others, why do we -- who are all prodigal sons and daughters -- uni…
 
Your ability, your destiny, to be a chosen, joint heir with Jesus Christ is directly tied to your willingness and ability to put away your traditions.When we embrace traditions which deviate from the doctrines and teachings found in the Standard Works -- no matter how long they've been around -- we make ourselves vulnerable to Satan stealing away o…
 
When you judge another, you only deepen the spiritual depths in which you live. It increases your disharmony with the Lord, His characteristics, His attributes, His personality and His doctrines. The Lord has told us members of the church what will happen to such members very soon:“Behold, vengeance cometh speedily upon the inhabitants of the earth…
 
* Whether we’re aware of it or not, we’re influenced by a cacophony of spiritual sounds every minute of our lives.* Just the sheer diversity and attractiveness of these sounds makes it nearly impossible to focus on what’s right.* Further complicating the situation: Satan is highly motivated and extremely adept at drowning out these loud, colorful, …
 
We have been told that “When priesthood authority is exercised properly, priesthood bearers do what He would do if He were present.”. We have also seen church leaders lament the lack of this power, both in 2010 and 2018.What about you? If this “tragedy” is to be “eliminated”, then who does it realistically start with?If you have priesthood (“the au…
 
God will test you beyond what you think is your limit.This philosophy probably flies in the face of what you’ve been taught since you were a child -- that God will never test you beyond your known limits. But if God were to test you up to your self-appointed boundaries, then how would you ever experience true, meaningful spiritual growth?The Lord w…
 
Of all the relationships that exist on the earth, none are more important in the eternities than the ones which connect Jesus Christ with husbands and wives. As a healthy, functioning triad (where Christ is at the top and the husband and wife are at the bottom, and all three are connected), families can be raised and reared in the gospel of Jesus C…
 
(NOTE: The audio says "Part 6," but it's actually Part 7).Some of the best and brightest among us -- those who know the doctrines, scriptures, history and more better than most others -- are continually and increasingly believing teachings which are not grounded in scriptural truths.Today, it's getting harder and harder -- even among the very elect…
 
I've often stated on this blog that we, as a people, seem to know a lot about Christ. Unfortunately, it's been my observation that very few actually know Him.When you seek to know Him -- I mean, when you really endeavor to understand His post-resurrection personality and disposition -- you see a Savior you've rarely, if ever, contemplated. It's lik…
