had a visit from the angel, how he had the dream, how the spirit of God told him these people should be baptized. These Jews started to humble themselves and learn the true character of God. In everynation, those that obey will be accepted.I want you to believe, for the same priesthood is here in President Jeffs and in your fathers.These miracles, these blessings the Lord gives, will be ours if we will just believe and obey.
TheLord will send you young men forth one day. That's why you are sitting here, having thistraining. You will go to the nations of the earth. You will go among the ten tribes. Some of youwill go south among the Lamanites, and you will teach them these stories - this gospel. We'renot going through this just to be entertained and to forget. I yearn you young people will beraised up to be used by our prophet.
Talking to the young ladies, you are being prepared to teach children to have faith in God -your children - so they can be used by the Lord. You ladies will go into the temples with your husbands, and give blessings to all the people that have lived on the earth, in the spirit world now,who will receive it. There are such great things ahead of you. You must have this training as part of your life. You weren't born to be a gentile and just go get a job. You were born to help build the cityof Zion and do the same work the ancient prophets performed. I testify of this to you, and ask Heavenly Father to give you a love for these truths you are learning, that you will live for our prophetand do his will.
March 25,1996Subject: Stories of the Prophets
Every teacher in priesthood is to teach as moved upon by the Holy Ghost. That means everylistener should receive by the same spirit. You and I are here to do the will of the prophet whom theLord has sent. If we'll humble ourselves with that faith because we are doing his will, the Lord willgive us an increase.Paul began teaching the gentiles, and the Jews gathered up other Jews and leaders and rose upagainst Paul, rejecting the word of Paul. Yet, the gentile people received the words of Paul. The Jews,as a people, would eventually reject the word of God. The gentiles would have the gospel clear untilJohn Taylor's day. The Jews would be driven and scattered hereafter. Remember, the teachings youhad about Abraham: When any gentile was baptized and receives the gift of the Holy Ghost, if they'retruely repentant, the spirit of God will come into them and change their blood to the blood of Israel,and they will be accepted. They will be part of the priesthood family. When a gentile receives thespirit of God, they actually look different. Their outside features change. They look brighter andhappier, the spirit of God shining from their face, their countenance and their eyes.
When the Jews saw many gentiles joining the church, the priesthood, they got angry and drove outBarnabas and Paul from that city. The way of the priesthood is, when a
people reject the message, theteachings of the priesthood, the prophets shake off their feet, the dust off their feet, as a testimonyagainst those wicked people. When the prophet speaks, it is the word of God. A prophet is a teacher.He doesn't just rebuke and cast people out. He will work with his brethren.These great miracles were performed only to do the will of God. What if a person comesamong us, performing
miracles? Does that mean he's a man of God, or woman of God? No. Onlythose that obey the prophet are righteous.
