1 TRUST IN THE LORD WITH ALL THINE HEART: A TYPOLOGY OF NECESSITY IN THE LAST DAYS

2 “We talk about our trials and troubles here in this life: but suppose that you could see yourselves thousands and millions of years after you have proved faithful to your religion during the few short years in this time, and have obtained eternal salvation and a crown of glory in the presence of God; then look back upon your lives here, and see the losses, crosses, and disappointments, the sorrows and you would be constrained to exclaim, "But what of all that? Those things were but for a moment, and we are now here.“ (as quoted by Neal A. Maxwell) (as quoted by Neal A. Maxwell) Lord, Increase our Faith, 52 Lord, Increase our Faith, 52 President Brigham Young

3 “As far as we degenerate from God, we descend to the devil and lose knowledge, and without knowledge we cannot be saved, and while our hearts are filled with evil, we are studying evil, there is no room in our hearts for good, or studying good.” TPJS, 217 Prophet Joseph Smith

4 “When they reached the Sweetwater River on November 3, chunks of ice were floating in the freezing water. After all these people had been through, and in their weakened condition, that river seemed impossible to cross. It looked like stepping into death itself to move into the freezing stream. Men who once had been strong sat on the frozen ground and wept, as did the women and children. Many simply could not face that ordeal. Pres. Gordon B. Hinckley

5 “And now I quote from the record: "Three eighteen-year-old boys belonging to the relief party came to the rescue, and to the astonishment of all who saw, carried nearly every member of the ill-fated handcart company across the snowbound stream. The strain was so terrible, and the exposure so great, that in later years all the boys died from the effects of it. When President Brigham Young heard of this heroic act, he wept like a child, and later declared publicly, 'that act alone will ensure C. Allen Huntington, George W. Grant, and David P. Kimball an everlasting salvation in the Celestial Kingdom of God, worlds without end.'" Teachings of Gordon B. Hinckley, 282 Teachings of Gordon B. Hinckley, 282 Pres. Gordon B. Hinckley

6 “God bless you, my dear young friends. You are the best generation we have ever had. You know the gospel better. You are more faithful in your duties. You are stronger to face the temptations which come your way. Live by your standards. Pray for the guidance and protection of the Lord. He will never leave you alone. He will comfort you. He will sustain you. He will bless and magnify you and make your reward sweet and beautiful. Pres. Gordon B. Hinckley

7 “And you will discover that your example will attract others who will take courage from your strength.” Ensign, Nov 2003, 82 Pres. Gordon B. Hinckley

8 “The first time I ever saw Joseph Smith was in April, I met him in the streets of Kirtland. He invited me to his house. I stopped with him while preparing to go up to Zion in Zion's camp. On Sunday he called a priesthood meeting. They all gathered in a little cabin. There I first heard Joseph Smith speak publicly; also Hyrum Smith, Oliver Cowdery, Brigham Young, Heber C. Kimball, Parley and Orson Pratt and William E. McLellin. The Prophet called upon the elders to bear testimony of the gospel of Christ and they arose one after another and bore a short testimony. Pres. Wilford Woodruff

9 “Then Brother Joseph arose and said: "Brethren, I am very much edified and interested in listening to your testimony. But I want to tell you that you know no more concerning the result of this work and what lies before you as the elders of Israel, and before this people, than a parcel of little children." “I expect they were all a little startled by it. He told them this work would fill the whole earth, and that all nations would have to hear the proclamation of the gospel. Pres. Wilford Woodruff

10 “He further said: "This work will fill the Rocky Mountains with tens of thousands of Latter-day Saints, and there will be joined with them the Lamanites who dwell in those mountains who will receive the gospel of Christ at the mouth of elders of Israel, and they will be united with the Church and the kingdom of God, and bring forth much good." Discourses of Wilford Woodruff, 30 Pres. Wilford Woodruff
