Victory Through Christ

With power and glory I will descend from on high,
The righteous with me as I appear in the sky.
My saints will be blessed, and crowns given,
For they by their King were brought to heaven.
With joy they will inherit the earth and a place,
Given with love through my power and grace.
For a thousand years we will grow in light,
And then at last we will finish the fight.
One more time our enemy will seek his way,
But my faithful and true will abide the day.
With strength and power we will cast Satan out,
With joy we will triumph, and in victory shout!

I have included the complete lyrics to this beautiful hymn written by William W. Phelps. This hymn is powerful and sacred! What a privilege and blessing for him to be blessed with the gift of writing praises unto God. So special!:)

Lyrics

1. Redeemer of Israel,
Our only delight,
On whom for a blessing we call,
Our shadow by day
And our pillar by night,
Our King, our Deliv’rer, our all!

2. We know he is coming
To gather his sheep
And lead them to Zion in love,
For why in the valley
Of death should they weep
Or in the lone wilderness rove?

3. How long we have wandered
As strangers in sin
And cried in the desert for thee!
Our foes have rejoiced
When our sorrows they’ve seen,
But Israel will shortly be free.

4. As children of Zion,
Good tidings for us.
The tokens already appear.
Fear not, and be just,
For the kingdom is ours.
The hour of redemption is near.

5. Restore, my dear Savior,
The light of thy face;
Thy soul-cheering comfort impart;
And let the sweet longing
For thy holy place
Bring hope to my desolate heart.

6. He looks! and ten thousands
Of angels rejoice,
And myriads wait for his word;
He speaks! and eternity,
Filled with his voice,
Re-echoes the praise of the Lord.

My Beloved Son

 

This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased,

By the strength of His grace the captive is released.

He drank the cup of my wrath, to save all He was given,

His sacrifice will bring the faithful home to Heaven.

This is my beloved Son, perfect, strong, and true,

By the shedding of His blood the sinner is made new.

He broke the bands of death, and restored life to all,

Because of His atonement, man can rise above the fall.

Triumphant my beloved Son will set the world free,

Forever will He stand supreme on the right hand of me!

Holy is the offering even my Only Begotten Son,

Given with great love, that your soul might be won!

This inspired and sacred hymn was written by Marvin K. Gardner! So beautiful!

Lyrics
1. Jesus entered Jordan’s waters
When His work had just begun.
God the Father spoke from heaven:
“This is My Beloved Son. Hear Him!”

2. Nephites gazing into heaven
Saw their white-robed Savior come.
And they heard the Father witness:
“This is My Beloved Son. Hear Him!”

3. Joseph saw two glorious beings
Shining brighter than the sun.
God again presented Jesus:
“This is My Beloved Son. Hear Him!”

4. As I read the scriptures daily—
Words of Christ, the Holy One—
In my heart I’ll hear God tell me:
“This is My Beloved Son. Hear Him!”

I love Dieter F. Uchtdorf! I am grateful for his devotion to His beloved Savior. When he speaks I feel and know that he has a close relationship with Jesus Christ. I am so blessed to be a member of The Church Of Jesus Christ Of Latter Day Saints! How beautiful it is to hear the testimony of his faithful servants!:)

The Proof

 

Your lips speak I love you, the proof I cannot see,

Your hands reach for darkness not the light in me.

Vain swelling words like a trumpet you blare,

Your actions show for whom you really care.

Your foolish imagination by the enemy is led,

You follow not my servants and all I have said.

Calling light dark, you despise your God and King,

A prison you’re building by all that you bring.

Brick by brick you create the place you will stay,

When I come in power on that glorious day.

O my lost sheep who would not return,

Why have you chosen to suffer and burn?

Your Judge has waited and soon you will see,

The proof of my vengeance as I set the world free!

Helaman 16:22 

"And many more things did the people aimagine up in their hearts, which were foolish and bvain; and they were much disturbed, for Satan did stir them up to do iniquity continually; yea, he did go about spreading crumors and contentions upon all the face of the land, that he might harden the hearts of the people against that which was good and against that which should come."

 

Doctrine and Covenants 76:102-105

"Last of all, these all are they who will not be gathered with the saints, to be caught up unto the church of the Firstborn, and received into the cloud.These areathey who are liars, and sorcerers, and adulterers, and whoremongers, and whosoever loves and makes a lie.These are they who suffer the wrath of God on earth.These are they who suffer the vengeance of eternal fire."

 

 

 

 

This is a powerful video and warning to those who will not see their Savior and King. Brothers and sisters to not see truth is to walk with the enemy of all righteousness. How many like the Scribes and Pharisees call light dark, and dark light? The Saviors warning to them, is for us today. I hope we will heed that warning. I testify that the consequence of refusing light, is to receive darkness. I hope we will choose light, even the light of our Savior Jesus Christ!

"Soon, however, all flesh shall see Him together. All knees shall bow in His presence, and all tongues confess His name. Knees which never before have assumed that posture for that purpose will do so then—and promptly. Tongues which have never before spoken His name except in gross profanity will do so then—and worshipfully. Soon, He who was once mockingly dressed in purple will come again, attired in red apparel, reminding us whose blood redeemed us." Neal A. Maxwell

These Are They

These are they He will call His own,
Chaste and true they shall be known.
These are they who followed well,
Escaping prison, the grasp of hell.
These are they who shall come forth,
Repentant souls who know rebirth.
These are they who can abide,
Valiant souls who stand by His side!
These are they who with Him will fly,
Revealed with God in the sky!
These are they who assemble and know,
The King of Kings and heavens glow!

Doctrine and Covenants 76:68
"These are they whose names are written in heaven, where God and Christ are the judge of all."

Another sacred witness of truth by William W. Phelps! So beautiful!

1. Now let us rejoice in the day of salvation.
No longer as strangers on earth need we roam.
Good tidings are sounding to us and each nation,
And shortly the hour of redemption will come,
When all that was promised the Saints will be given,
And none will molest them from morn until ev’n,
And earth will appear as the Garden of Eden,
And Jesus will say to all Israel, “Come home.”

2. We’ll love one another and never dissemble
But cease to do evil and ever be one.
And when the ungodly are fearing and tremble,
We’ll watch for the day when the Savior will come,
When all that was promised the Saints will be given,
And none will molest them from morn until ev’n,
And earth will appear as the Garden of Eden,
And Jesus will say to all Israel, “Come home.”

3. In faith we’ll rely on the arm of Jehovah
To guide thru these last days of trouble and gloom,
And after the scourges and harvest are over,
We’ll rise with the just when the Savior doth come.
Then all that was promised the Saints will be given,
And they will be crown’d with the angels of heav’n,
And earth will appear as the Garden of Eden,
And Christ and his people will ever be one.
