Restoration of Christ's gospel

My Sabbath day has been rich in spirit and I have learned much today. I was reminded of and learned many things that will assist me in my path of spiritual progression. The particular message I want to share on my weekly blog update today is the message of the Restoration of Christ's gospel and priesthood to the earth. The video above illustrates clearly the vision that young Joseph Smith had to open this last dispensation and bring the fullness of the truth back to the earth.

In the Holy Bible we learn that an apostasy (falling away from truth) must occur and that a restitution of all things would happen.

19 aRepent ye therefore, and be bconverted, that your sins may be cblotted out, when the times of refreshing shall come from the dpresence of the Lord;

20 And he shall send aJesus Christ, which before was preached unto you:b

21 Whom the heaven must receive until the times of arestitution of all things, which God hath bspoken by the mouth of all his holy prophets since the world began.

ACTS 3:19-21

I am grateful for the restoration of Christ's gospel and priesthood that enable all people everywhere to come unto Christ and partake of His many blessings. Through the restored gospel we learn about the plan of salvation and what each of us must do to return to live with our Heavenly Father some day.

When Jesus Christ was on the earth, He established His Church among His followers. After His Crucifixion and the deaths of His Apostles, the fulness of the gospel was taken from the earth because of widespread apostasy. Through the Prophet Joseph Smith, our Father in Heaven and His Son Jesus Christ restored the fulness of the gospel. The true Church of Jesus Christ is on the earth again. Because of the Restoration, the teachings and ordinances necessary for salvation are available to all people. ~

To learn more for yourself about Christ's Church being restored please read one of my favorite sermons on the restoration. It was given by an apostle of Jesus Christ, Elder Neal A. Maxwell of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles: THE WONDROUS RESTORATION
