I am trying with this Un-Blog to highlight the pathway to great spiritual blessings. I have found, and the scriptures teach, that there is an identifiable pathway which the spiritually profound walk in exactly the same way as everyone else. Some people may experience things in a slightly different order, but generally, even for those of spiritual renown, the process is the same. Knowing this can be a great asset, because we can look at where we are, and see how far we have come, and also see what the next step might be. It is impossible to skip steps, and if one is seeking for something of great magnitude, there may be necessary steps in-between where you are, and where you yearn to be.
Thus far we have Un-Blogged about the following steps:
- Obedience to the voice of Christ / Holy Spirit
- Faith in Christ
- Gift of the Holy Ghost
- Being Born Again
Through the following weeks and longer, we will begin to discuss the following:
- Becoming perfect in Christ
- Personal revelation
- Temple endowment
- Taught by Angels
- Power in the Priesthood
- Becoming Pure in Heart
- Making your Calling and Election Sure
- Second Comforter
- “Endowed” from on High
- The Holy Order
- Fullness of the Priesthood
- Fullness of the Gospel
- Translation (Why and how)
- Qualifying for a place in Zion
- The last days and the 144,000
Not only do we want to discuss them, we want to unlock how to achieve them. There is a clearly defined law for each of these grand blessings. With a little help from above, we will open the heavens and invite these blessings upon our heads.
Don’t let it feel overwhelming. These are blessings of lesser magnitude than qualifying for Celestial glory, which we all assume we will enjoy. We will pass through this degree of righteous accomplishment on our way to Glory. The only modification to one’s faith that might be needed is to come to realize and expect to receive these things in this life – and not just in some eternal world.
It will be an exciting journey.
