Amen to that
I read this quote this morning. All I can say is praise God! I love when God speaks, be it through a man or a woman.
“These glories are called Telestial, Terrestrial and Celestial, which is the highest, these worlds, different apartments, or mansions in our Father’s house.
Now those men and those women who know no more about the power of God, and the influences of the Holy Spirit, than to be led entirely by another person, suspending their own understanding and pinning their faith on another’s sleeve will never be capable of entering into the Celestial Kingdom, to be crowned as they anticipate; they will never be capable of becoming Gods.
They cannot rule themselves to say nothing of ruling others, but they must be dictated to in every trifle, like a child. They cannot control themselves in the least, but James, Peter, or somebody else must control them.
They cannot become Gods, or be crowned as rulers with glory, immortality and eternal lives. They never can hold scepters of glory, majesty and power in the Celestial Kingdom.
Those who are valiant and inspired with the true independence of heaven who will go forth boldly in the service of their God, leaving others to do as they please.
Every man must learn to do his own thinking – and his own searching – and above all, every man must find his own contact with the Almighty through the Light of Christ that is given to abide in Him.”
Amen to that.
