Talk is cheep, so put your actions where your mouth is and consider the scriptures concerning our connection with our dead. Salvation is a family affair, and requires both the living and the dead. The point of this blog is to teach you what I have learned by the Spirit of Revelation, concerning A Welding Link with our dead.
There is more for us to do with our dead than we have ever understood before. Talk is cheep! After reading the scriptures that I’ll lay out for you, are you going to put your actions where your mouth is? Do you ACTUALLY believe that the scriptures are the words of God? If so, consider what I am recommending about our relationship with our dead. Let’s start with A Welding Link:
“18. …that the earth will be smitten with a curse unless there is A Welding Link of some kind or other between the fathers and the children… For we without them cannot be made perfect; neither can they without us be made perfect. Neither can they nor we be made perfect without those who have died in the gospel also; for it is necessary in the ushering in of the dispensation of the fulness of times, which dispensation is now beginning to usher in, that a whole and complete and perfect union, and welding together of dispensations, and keys, and powers, and glories should take place, and be revealed from the days of Adam even to the present time. And not only this, but those things which never have been revealed from the foundation of the world, but have been kept hid from the wise and prudent, shall be revealed unto babes and sucklings in this, the dispensation of the fulness of times.”
The dispensation of the fulness of times began to be ushered in, during the time of Joseph Smith. He brought about the Spirit of Elias, but there were mistakes sown by men, that must be corrected before the work can move forward. The complete return of Elias, Elijah, and Messiah, indicates the fulness of times. This will weld together all dispensations, keys, powers, and glories, …from Adam to now. Things revealed in THAT day, have never been revealed from the foundation of the world. Summary: The Welding Link ties all dispensations together, and reveals new knowledge, which has never been revealed before.
If you without them, and they without you cannot be saved, A Welding Link between all of us must be formed, or the whole earth be smitten with a curse, and our family-line be cut-off. Salvation is a family affair, and requires both the living and the dead.
“1. For, behold, the day cometh, that shall burn as an oven; and all the proud, yea, and all that do wickedly, shall be stubble: and the day that cometh shall burn them up, saith the Lord of hosts, that it shall leave them neither root nor branch.”
Root and branch is a genealogical reference, saying that our disconnected state leaves us cut-off. We must change that.
Reading D&C 63 opened a revelation to me, concerning our dead.
“49. Yea, and blessed are the dead that die in the Lord, from henceforth, when the Lord shall come, and old things shall pass away, and all things become new, they shall rise from the dead and shall not die after, and shall receive an inheritance before the Lord, in the holy city.”
I have read this passage before, but this was the first time it stood out to me. I read it, saying, that when we walk into Zion, our dead will be raised up, …and they’ll receive a land of inheritance with us!
Conclusion: We walking into Zion offers our dead to be raised up, on the morning of the first resurrection. They can live with us in Zion. They can have a land of inheritance just like us. We can be one, having been welded together. Read it carefully. It’s in there. Can you see it? Can you hear the voice of the Lord telling you that it is true? Then lets work together, so that we can qualify to enter into Zion. The Mormons don’t understand it, and they will not be the ones entering in. Search the scriptures, and let them tell you what to do. If you do, you will be free of the false traditions of the church, allowing Christ to lead and guide your efforts, personally. That was always His intention.
