January 22 – Everlasting burnings. What is it? Who goes to everlasting burnings and why? Isaiah 33:12, 14. “And the people shall be as the burnings of lime…the sinners in Zion are afraid; fearlfulness hath surprised the hypocrites. Who among us shall dwell with the devouring fire? Who among us shall dwell with everlasting burnings?”
As a Christian I can find refuge by knowing where I’ll be after this earthly life. There is no confusion in my mind about the meaning of everlasting burnings for me any longer.
Teachings of the Prophet Joseph Smith pg. 346; “Here, then, is eternal life-to know the only wise and true God; and you have got to learn how to be Gods yourselves…from exaltation to exaltation, until you attain to the resurrection of the dead, and are able to dwell in everlasting burnings…”
