The Fires of Heaven


I would like to thank Kathy for hosting a wonderful fireside in Orem today. It is a pleasure to meet with people who rejoice in Christ, and who are anxious to further their discipleship.

We were discussing recognizing personal revelation, which is something we have Un-Blogged about often here, when something unexpectedly came forth. It always interests me when things are said in a way I have never before said them, or in a way I had not previously considered.  This is the gist of what was said.

When we take the Holy Spirit as our guide, and we perform some act because Jesus Christ has led us to do it, we should conclude that act by saying “in the name of Jesus Christ, amen.” If we as latter-day Saints used this phrase correctly, to mean that what we have just said, or done, is truly what Jesus Christ instructed and inspired us to do, and in fact is what He would have said or done had He been here Himself, then it should cause a thrill of joy and righteous wonder to course through our bodies.

Correctly saying, “In the name of Jesus Christ” should call down the fires of heaven, because we have spoken the words of Christ, and by invoking His name in benediction we are sealing in the record of heaven, that Jesus Christ was here, in voice and in deed, and that His will has been done. Such words should be received as authoritative, powerful and prophetic, and in our hearts they should seal and sanctify the deed for the recipients, even as Jesus Christ seals and sanctifies the doer of the deed.

    I, too, would have loved to attend the fireside. How can we find out about them, or set one up with you?

      Hi Melody,

      I will publish information about the ones that are open to the public. Some of them are in people’s homes that aren’t large enough to open them up.

      If anyone would like to set one up you can say so in a comment on the Un-Blog. I will respond directly to you.

      God bless,

      Brother John
