The LDS Daily WOOL© Archive - The Tenth Article of Faith


(3/20/02)
"Our tenth Article of Faith says, 'We believe in the literal gathering of Israel.' This gathering occurs when the lost sheep of Israel come into the Church. It occurs when their sins are washed away in the waters of baptism, so that once again they have power to become pure in heart; and Zion is the pure in heart." Bruce R. McConkie, "Come: Let Israel Build Zion," Ensign, May 1977, p. 118

(3/21/02)
"This gathering of Israel and this building of Zion in the last days occurs in stages. The early part of the work, which involved gathering to the United States and building stakes of Zion in North America, has already been accomplished. We are now engaged in gathering Israel within the various nations of the earth and in establishing stakes of Zion at the ends of the earth." Bruce R. McConkie, "Come: Let Israel Build Zion," Ensign, May 1977, p. 116

(3/22/02)
"Both the scriptures and talks given by men of God suggest a cleansing by fire that must come in the last days to purify the earth before the second coming of the Lord. That time is rapidly approaching, although no mortal knows the hour." Theodore M. Burton, "A Disease Called Pride," Ensign, Mar. 1971, p. 26-27

(3/23/02)
"The vision of the New Jerusalem has moved generations of mankind. It has moved our people. We look to the day when 'Christ will reign personally upon the earth.' (A of F 1:10.) But, as the prophet Malachi asked, 'Who may abide the day of his coming? and who shall stand when he appeareth?' (Mal. 3:2.) Let us prepare to abide the day of his coming by building Zion in our hearts, in our families, as we make pages for the future history of the Church." G. Homer Durham, "The Future History of the Church," Ensign, May 1982, p. 68

(3/24/02)
"The lineage of Joseph, through Ephraim and Manasseh, is the seed appointed to lead in the gathering of Israel. The pioneers knew--through their patriarchal blessings and the Old Testament, amplified by scriptures and revelations of the Restoration--that the long-awaited gathering of Israel was to commence with them. This 'ball' was in their court!" Russell M. Nelson, "The Exodus Repeated," Ensign, July 1999, p. 12
