Scripture discussion
slide30

Sometimes the Lord teaches us by telling his prophets what we need to know, and the Church always has a prophet leading it.

  • Who was the first prophet on this earth?
    • Adam.
  • Who was the first latter-day prophet?
    • Joseph Smith.
slide33

In John 15:16 we read:

    • 16 Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that ye should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain: that whatsoever ye shall ask of the Father in my name, he may give it you.
slide34

Explain that not everyone is called to be a prophet.

  • Jesus Christ himself chooses who his prophet will be.
slide35

When Jesus Christ chooses a prophet, he gives him all the authority he will need to preside over the Church.

  • This prophet is also the President of the Church.

  • Jesus Christ was the greatest prophet who has lived on the earth. He taught the gospel and performed many miracles.
slide41

Listen to the following story about President David O. McKay, one of the latter-day prophets.

  • Latter-day prophets are those who have lived since Joseph Smith, or close to the time that we live.
slide42

When President David O. McKay was the prophet, he traveled throughout much of the world to meet and lead the members of the Church. Once when he was in Germany, he heard about a mother who was paralyzed and could not come to the conference to hear him speak.

slide43

This mother had two children, and she wanted them to go to the conference and see and hear the living prophet. With great faith she said, “I know if I send my children to shake hands with President McKay, and then they come home and take my hand—if I can hold their little hands in mine—I know that I shall get better.”

slide44

Arrangements were made so that her two children were able to go to the conference. The children were thrilled and excited as they traveled to see the prophet.

slide45

At the end of the conference, President McKay shook hands with many people who were there. He knew that these two children were coming, and when he saw them, he shook hands with them and said, “Will you take this handkerchief to your mother with my blessing?”

slide46

The children took the handkerchief back to their mother. She was very happy and thanked the Lord every day for the handkerchief and the blessing which President McKay sent through her two children. Immediately after the children came home, she began to get better, and she was soon able to move her body and take care of her children.
