Sing For Joy!
"For it shall come to pass in that day, that every man shall hear the fulness of the gospel in his own tongue, and in his own language, through those who are ordained unto this power, by the administration of the Comforter, shed forth upon them for the revelation of Jesus Christ."
— Doctrine & Covenants 90:11
I am so happy that I live in a day to see this revelation be fulfilled. Today, the restored gospel of Jesus Christ is alive in well in almost the entire world. According to a post on LDS Church Growth, in 2011 there were only 41 countries and territories in the ENTIRE world that did not have a church presence there. The Holy Bible has been translated into nearly 200 languages. As of 2009, the Book of Mormon has been translated into 89 languages, and selections of it translated into another 26 languages. During General Conference, the meetings are available in nearly 100 languages and dialects.
What an amazing time this is, when the gospel of Jesus Christ floods the earth! In the words of Thomas S. Monson – "How grateful we are that the heavens are indeed open, that the gospel of Jesus Christ has been restored, and that the Church is founded on the rock of revelation. We are a blessed people, with apostles and prophets upon the earth today."
It makes me want to sing for joy!
