    Alma 30:7-11

    I can agree with that. But do you believe God blesses someone for disobedience?

    @Carborendum It was from something mentioned earlier. And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ. I found these teachings on the church's website that says that if one is a child of God, then that means they are joint-heirs; which it defines as exalted beings. https://www.churchofjesuschrist.org/study/manual/teachings-joseph-smith/chapter-18?lang=eng https://emp.byui.edu/DormanS/Rel 212/New Testament Student Manual.pdf https://www.churchofjesuschrist.org/study/manual/new-testament-student-manual/romans/chapter-36-romans-4-8?lang=eng https://www.churchofjesuschrist.org/study/manual/teachings-joseph-smith/chapter-3?lang=eng https://www.churchofjesuschrist.org/study/manual/new-testament-study-guide-for-home-study-seminary-students/introduction-to-romans/unit-21-day-1-romans-8-11?lang=eng

    Why are only exalted beings (the joint-heirs) considered the children of God?

    Alma 30:7-11

    How do you understand these verses? Hosea 12:2 - The Lord hath also a controversy with Judah, and will punish Jacob according to his ways; according to his doings will he recompense him. Amos 3:2 - You only have I known of all the families of the earth: therefore I will punish you for all your iniquities. Do you believe God blesses someone for obedience?
  5. In a communication to Peter, the verses say "Yea, he has undertaken a greater work; therefore I will make him as flaming fire and a ministering angel; he shall minister for those who shall be heirs of salvation who dwell on the earth. And I will make thee to minister for him and for thy brother James; and unto you three I will give this power and the keys of this ministry until I come" Why would John minister for all those on earth whereas Peter would minister for John and James?

    Resurrection Question

    Alma 40 has some more information about what happens between death and resurrection. 11 Now, concerning the state of the soul between death and the resurrection—Behold, it has been made known unto me by an angel, that the spirits of all men, as soon as they are departed from this mortal body, yea, the spirits of all men, whether they be good or evil, are taken home to that God who gave them life. 12 And then shall it come to pass, that the spirits of those who are righteous are received into a state of happiness, which is called paradise, a state of rest, a state of peace, where they shall rest from all their troubles and from all care, and sorrow. 13 And then shall it come to pass, that the spirits of the wicked, yea, who are evil—for behold, they have no part nor portion of the Spirit of the Lord; for behold, they chose evil works rather than good; therefore the spirit of the devil did enter into them, and take possession of their house—and these shall be cast out into outer darkness; there shall be weeping, and wailing, and gnashing of teeth, and this because of their own iniquity, being led captive by the will of the devil. 14 Now this is the state of the souls of the wicked, yea, in darkness, and a state of awful, fearful looking for the fiery indignation of the wrath of God upon them; thus they remain in this state, as well as the righteous in paradise, until the time of their resurrection.

    What message do you think Christ was trying to convey in Mark 3? And his mother and his brothers came, and standing outside they sent to him and called him. And a crowd was sitting around him, and they said to him, “Your mother and your brothers are outside, seeking you.” And he answered them, “Who are my mother and my brothers?” And looking about at those who sat around him, he said, “Here are my mother and my brothers! For whoever does the will of God, he is my brother and sister and mother.”

    I think its all based on some events in the future. And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast, and them that worshipped his image. These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone. The power of this false prophet is mentioned earlier in Revelation. And he doeth great wonders, so that he maketh fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men, And deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast.

    I don't know who these 10 kings or leaders will be, but if we are around, we'll know when the beast is revealed and he gives them power for a short time. Then we will also see the harlot destroyed.
  10. Abraham 3:2-3,9 mentions it is a star nearest to the throne of God so it doesn't appear that he is governing from the star itself but rather from his throne.
  11. Are the 7000 years of D&C 77:7 continuous?

    Verse 12 says And the ten horns which thou sawest are ten kings, which have received no kingdom as yet; but receive power as kings one hour with the beast. I see these 10 kings obtaining a temporary kingdom in the future via power granted by the beast, but which God permits.

    I apologize

    No need to apologize. If I can't reply to one of your queries, assume that I am stumped 🙂
  14. Would someone clarify this section. "And in addition to your testimony, the testimony of three of my servants, whom I shall call and ordain, unto whom I will show these things, and they shall go forth with my words that are given through you. Yea, they shall know of a surety that these things are true, for from heaven will I declare it unto them. I will give them power that they may behold and view these things as they are; And to none else will I grant this power, to receive this same testimony among this generation, in this the beginning of the rising up and the coming forth of my church out of the wilderness- clear as the moon, and fair as the sun, and terrible as an army with banners". What power did the 3 servants have that the others did not?

    I have not studied that, but I think you are over-complicating things to the point where one cannot understand what a 'king' or his 'kingdom' could represent in Revelation 17.
