Ensign, November 2008, pg. 61; “… (Ezekiel 36:26–28).”How might we merit this promise? What will qualify us to receive this blessing? Is there a guide to follow?”May I suggest three imperatives for our consideration. They apply to the deacon as well as to the high priest. They are within our reach. A kind Heavenly Father will help us in our quest.”First, learn what we should learn.”Second, do what we should do.”And third, be what we should be.”” – Thomas S. Monson
Acts 8:14-16; “Now when the apostles which were at Jerusalem heard that Samaria had received the word of God, they sent unto them Peter and John: 15 Who, when they were come down, prayed for them, that they might receive the Holy Ghost: 16 (For as yet he was fallen upon none of them: only they were baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus.).”
1. Become a Gnostic in order to receive the Holy Ghost?
2. Work for the Holy Ghost’s presence?
3. Be perfect to receive the Holy Ghost?
Which of these things don’t apply?
