Day 84: Eth3-6 The brother of Jared is shown the finger of the Lord as he touches the stones that the brother of Jared brought to him so that they would have light in their vessels while they were on the waters. I never really noticed how bold the brother of Jared seems after the Lord affirms his faith. Ch3v9-10 “And the Lord said unto him: Because of thy faith thou hast seen that I shall take upon me flesh and blood; and never has man come before me with such exceeding faith as thou hast; for were it not so ye could not have seen my finger. Sawest thou more than this? And he answered: Nay; Lord, show thyself unto me.” That reminds me of the scripture in the Doctrine and Covenants (121v45) “let virtue garnish thy thoughts unceasingly; then shall thy confidence wax strong in the presence of God.” As a result of his confidence and his great faith, the Lord showed himself.
