Doctrine & Covenants 101:1-16
On December 16 and 17, 1833, the Prophet Joseph Smith received a revelation concerning the afflictions the Saints were experiencing in Missouri. This revelation, recorded in Doctrine and Covenants 101, will be discussed over the next three lessons.
Today’s lesson we search our Doctrinal Mastery Topics and used our Acquiring Spiritual Knowledge skills to find the Lord’s explanation of why He allowed the Saints to be afflicted. We also asked and answered questions that strengthened all of our faith in Jesus Christ and our testimony’s of His Gospel.
Elder W. Craig Zwick of the Seventy explained what it means to be in the hands of God:
“To be in the hands of God would suggest that we are not only under His watchful care but also that we are guarded and protected by His wondrous power.
“Throughout the scriptures, reference is made to the hand of the Lord. His divine assistance is evidenced over and over again. His powerful hands created worlds, and yet they were gentle enough to bless the little children” (“The Lord Thy God Will Hold Thy Hand,” Ensign or Liahona, Nov. 2003, 34). #lds#ldsseminary#sharegoodness#doctrineandcovenants#restoration#doctrinalmastery
