Achieving translation as Enoch did requires that we use his pattern and order to measure faith to perfection, to stand perfect and complete in all the will of god – to be pure in heart through the sanctification process. Enoch’s pattern does this. The pattern of cords measuring faith; and dots, showing perfect faith make us his seed.
WE AS MEMBERS OF THE CHURCH DO NOT QUALIFY AS “HIS SEED” UNTIL WE SUBMIT THE DOTS!!
- 30. For God having sworn unto Enoch and unto his seed …; that every one being ordained after this order and calling should have power, by faith*, to break mountains, to divide the seas, … to stand in the presence of God*
- 32. And men having this faith , coming up unto this order of God, were translated and taken up into heaven. (JST Genesis 14:30-32)
|THE DOCTRINE OF TRANSLATION IS A POWER WHICH BELONGS TO THIS PRIESTHOOD, TPJS 170:4.|
“TRANSLATION IS: DELIVERANCE FROM DEATH” my soul delighteth in the covenants of the Lord – the great eternal plan of deliverance from death. 2 Nephi 11:5 COVENANTS ARE THE KEY TO OBTAINING DELIVERANCE – MOSES CALLED ENOCH’S TABLES – TABLES OF THE COVENANT“ By faith Enoch was translated that he should not see death” TPJS – 170. RECALL THE SAVIOR’S PROMISE RECORDED BY JOHN WHO ACHIEVED TRANSLATION: John 11:26 whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die. Believest thou this? TO LIVE IN HIM AND BELIEVE IN HIM MEANS SOMETHING VERY SPECIFIC TO THE BODY OF CHRIST WHERE SPIRIT AND BODY UNITE IN HIM ON THE TABLE OF THE LORD. AND WHAT IS OUR LEVEL OF BELIEF? LET’S RAISE OUR BELIEF TO ENOCH’S LEVEL.
ENOCH USED A PATTERN AND ORDER OF MEASURED PERFORMANCE OF COVENANTS ON THE TABLE OF THE LORD OR TABLE OF DESTINY TO INCREASE FAITH, SO -TRANSLATION IS DELIVERANCE FROM DEATH!! WHAT MUST WE DO TO BE DELIVERED?
- |v43 if you will be delivered you shall set in order your own house D&C 93:43
- BRING IN THE TABLE AND SET IT IN ORDER Exodus 40:4
- |v7 And who, as I, shall call, and shall declare it, and set it in order for me, Isaiah 44:7)
OUR MOTIVATION TO SET IN ORDER THE TABLE IS FOR ZION AND TRANSLATION. BRIGHAM YOUNG SAID, p3 USING that pattern and order by which Enoch prepared his people to be worthy of translation, we, through our faithfulness, must prepare ourselves (DBY 443, 3) THIS IS ZION—THE PURE IN HEART (D&C 97:21) SANCTIFICATION MAKES US PURE IN HEART.
WHO INITIATES THE SANCTIFICATION PROCESS?
|p6 When the father of a family wishes to make a Zion in his own house, he must take the lead in this good work, (IF) he himself possesses the spirit of Zion. he can produce the work of sanctification in his family, he must sanctify himself, …and God can help him to sanctify his family. (DBY 118, 6)|
BUT HOW DOES THE FATHER USE ENOCH’S PATTERN AND ORDER TO SANCTIFY HIS FAMILY?
|WITH ENOCH’S TABLE OF DESTINY ALREADY SET IN ORDER, THE FATHER ONLY HAS TO SET HIS FAMILY IN ORDER UPON IT THEN SUBMIT THE PRESENT IN THE FORM OF CORDS.|
THE CORDS ARE THE SPIRIT OF CHRIST WHICH SANCTIFIES –WE “ARE SANCTIFIED BY THE SPIRIT UNTO THE RENEWING OF OUR BODIES” (D&C 84:33)
THE FOLLOWING DOWNLOADS SHOW THE PROCEDURE TO OBTAIN DELIVERANCE. BOTH OF THESE SHEETS ARE NEEDED TO DO AS ENOCH DID TO USE HIS PATTERN AND ORDER.
THE PRESENT SUBMITTED IN THE FORM OF CORDS IS THE LIGHT OF CHRIST WHICH GLORIFIES.
