Today I would like to address a topic that I have come across a couple of times in the past few weeks. I just finished a book about a little boy who went to “heaven” and then returned. I believe that he did in fact have this experience but the actual place that he went to was a part of the spirit world and not where we lived before we came to this earth. In addressing one of these issues it brings to mind the topic for today’s blog. Many people think that we are not to know mysteries about God. First of all, our Heavenly Father wants us to know everything! He does give us small portions of knowledge. Line upon line, precept upon precept, but he does not want to hide anything from us. Just as Joseph Smith discovered while reading In 1st James in the 5th verse. It states :
I was driving in my car and I like to listen to world news. The story that was being addressed was about the Pope of the Catholic Church, and he was making the statement that there is mystery with God and we are not to know His purpose. Well I think this is not what James wrote. And from my experience, our loving Heavenly Father wants us to know all we can. Keep in mind that there are “sacred things” that we keep to ourselves or do not share publicly as directed by the spirit, but not mysterious things that we should not question.
We should find out about the spirit world. Our relationship to those that are now residing there and how we can help those people on both sides of the veil.
Don’t settle for no answers, find out what questions you have and then ask. With faith the answer will be given to you. Maybe not immediately, but it is promised that we will be given what we seek.
I do not share sacred things about Kory’s visits. I do share things that I feel will help those that are seeking answers. I do not make excuses for anyone who reads this narrative and does not find merit. It is up to you to find out. Decide all the information in regard to spiritual matters. It is real, and it is friendly. I hate that our Heavenly Father is always portrayed as a mean powerful being who brings misery to people. That is so far from the truth. But our purpose here does not lend to give us all the answers. We must learn to make right choices and find out true knowledge and slowly but surely all will be revealed to us. The Spirit World is not a mystery, nor should we believe the adage that it is wrong to find out all we can. God our Father wants us to. God our brother Jesus Christ died so we would have that opportunity to come here and learn for ourselves. It is a wonderful gift.
I hope that this week you can try to ponder upon questions that you would like answers to. Take James’ council, study it out in your mind, then ask. Be open to answers.
I hope that you have a wonderful week.
