A Prophetic Concern



Brigham Young
On one occasion pioneer Mosiah Hancock ate at the same table with Brigham Young when President Young stated the Saints should live in what?

A.      A sod roof cabin

B.      An adobe hut

C.      The largest frame house affordable

D.     A wigwam

Yesterday’s answers:
1.      (D)   30 years of age (see Numbers 4:1-3)

2.      (D)   All of the above
It is true that Adam helped to form this earth along with Jesus Christ. Others involved could be Enoch, Noah, and possibly even Joseph Smith.

Joseph Fielding Smith, Doctrines of Salvation (Salt Lake City: Bookcraft, 1956), 1:74-5.
3.      (B)   The American Revolution
In Old Testament times, the Mosaic Law stipulated the age of the soldiers. All able-bodied men twenty-years-old and up were eligible for military service. This standard continued into the American Revolution.

Old Testament Student Manual, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (Salt Lake City: The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, 1980), 226.
4.      (A)   A person who devoted their life to the Lord
A Nazarite was a man or woman who took a voluntary vow to separate his life for the service of the Lord, or to live consecrated unto Him. Being a Nazarite had nothing to do with coming from the town of Nazareth.

C. F. Keil and F. Delitzsch. Commentary on the Old Testament. 10 bks. (Grand Rapids, Michigan: William B. Eerdmans Publishing Co., n.d.), 1:3:34.
5.      (B)   Abraham
Abraham’s vision of the Lord parallels Joseph Smiths experience at the time of the first vision, as it states that Abraham had “a horror of great darkness fell upon him.”

Genesis 15:12
6.      (C)   Is a celestial world
President Joseph Fielding Smith said: It is my opinion that the great stars that we see, including our sun, are celestial worlds; at least worlds that have passed on to their exaltation or other final resurrected status. This is in conflict, of course, with the teachings of scientific men, who declare that the sun is losing its energy and gradually cooling off and will eventually be a dead world. I do not believe the Lord has any such thing in his plan. The Lord lives in “everlasting burnings” we are informed. President Brigham Young had said that this earth when it is celestialzed will shine like the sun, and why not?
Joseph Fielding Smith, Doctrines of Salvation (Salt Lake City: Bookcraft, 1956), 1:
