Video – The standard of truth has been erected

Yesterday I posted a video presentation “The spirit of god”, presenting in fast-form-fashion the story of the prophet Joseph Smith and the coming forth of the Book of Mormon.

Reflecting on the humble beginnings of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (the Mormons) never ceases to amaze me.  Here was this simple boy, claiming a divine visitation and the command to translate an ancient scriptural record.  Who roughly 10 years later in a meager farm-house first organized this new church with just a handful of people.  Faced on all sides with bitter persecution, mobs, and even armies.

Yet in spite of it all, he made the claim:  “The standard of truth has been erected.  No unhallowed hand can stop the work from progressing.  Persecutions may rage, mobs may combine, armies may assemble, calumny may defame.  But the truth of god will go forth, boldly, nobly and independent, till it has penetrated every continent, visited every clime, swept every country, and sounded in every ear, till the purposes of God shall be accomplished, and the great Jehovah shall say “the work is done”.

And here is a video today, dramatically illustrating the literal fulfillment of that very prophecy.  As a stone cut without hands rolls forth throughout the earth.

    I haven’t seen this in several months. Thanks for posting it here. For whatever reason it really affected me spiritually/emotionally and I really needed to see this today to be reminded of how many people share my same faith and beliefs. It’s very unifying to think of that. “Shall we not go on in so great a cause?”

    I’m so glad that it did, and I’m so glad that you mentioned it. It’s always invigorating for me to find that somehow a post now and then makes a difference. It is strengthening to associate yourself with those who share your beliefs. I speak about that a lot here (”Your spiritual ecosystem”). I hope that you will always find comfort and strength within this blog, and invite you to return often so that we might be edified together.
