December 3 – Matthew 1:19-20; “Then Joseph her husband, being a just man, and not willing to make her a publick example, was minded to put her away privily. But while he thought on these things, behold, the angel of the Lord appeared unto him in a dream, saying, Joseph, thou son of David, fear not to take unto thee Mary thy wife: for that which is conceived in her is of the Holy Ghost.”
For a moment today take a break in solitude and think upon these two verses. Think about the significance of what the Lord God has set into motion here. Conceived of the Holy Ghost…what a holy, pure and perfect God we serve! Fear not dear ones in sharing the truth with the Mormons. God will not disappoint you. If He can perform a miracle such as this, imagine what else He is able to do! The LDS Church has tried to bring this event down to the level of evil that resides in their hearts. Unwilling to accept that we have an omnipotent God; heretical ideas run rampant.
“The question has been, and is often, asked, who it was that begat the Son of the Virgin Mary. The infidel world have concluded that if what the Apostles wrote about his father and mother be true, and the present marriage discipline acknowledged by Christendom be correct, then Christians must believe that God is the father of an illegitimate son, in the person of Jesus Christ! The infidel fraternity teach that to their disciples. I will tell you how it is. Our Father in Heaven begat all the spirits that ever were, or ever will be, upon this earth; and they were born spirits in the eternal world.” Brigham Young, Journal of Discourses 1:50 – 51.
