The Latter-Day Saints' Millennial Star, Vol. 65 : July 9, 1903 (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from The Latter-Day Saints' Millennial Star, Vol. 65: July 9, 1903 But see in that Sphere of glory again. What means that gathering of all those happy subjects, their shining faces turned to one object, their counten auces burning with expectation? They are listening to their Lord and Master. He is revealing to them His newest plan. He tells them how He now expects them to be as brave and valiant as in times past when they were all arrayed against a terrible opposing power which was cast out from their presence and sent forth from justice a vagabond. But this is not to be a battle, and yet the same courage and qualifications are required. I will that my new domain be inhabited, He says, and have chosen that you, my. Children, should go and perform the work which I have arranged, that you may have rejoicing in glorifying me and my works. See there below you - I give you view - is your future home. You see it is a new condition and requires a change in your being. This is mortality; you must also become mortal in order that you may become great in immortality. They listen with wonder and admiration. This necessary change will be wrought in sorrow and suffering. You will lose the remembrance of your present being and will be made exceeding small. No one can escape this plan and enter this new abode. There is one way leading to mortality; its name is birth. The Master concluded, and songs of rejoicing and praise burst forth from that jubilant throng. But we see them now so changed and altered. That sweet remembrance withheld, they fulfill the words of their Lord, In sorrow and suffering Shall you go. As the delicate ﬂower in the shadow they droop, and are groping for a brighter light, that light which strengthens, vivifies, animates and fills the being with assurance of eternal progression and growth. Since the time of the change wrought upon them by birth, they have sought that light, but the veil of mortality is thick, and with age has shrunken till a heavy darkness envelops the mortal sphere. Yet in'the moment of almost helpless despair a vision bursts upon their View. They see again that long lost light and a new and happier abode. How anxious they are to reach it! But the way? Their master has revealed it to them. You must be born again, He says, and they obey the command. The new change has come, the second birth has passed, and they have regained citizenship in the eternal kingdom.
