The generations on either side of me link me to my past and my future. My view of family history involves revealing the roots and the branches.

Throughout this blog you will find perspectives related to the doctrines of temple and family history work from revealed revelation given to living prophets of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS - Mormon).

What Are The Promises That Were Made To The Fathers?

Moroni Appears to Joseph Smith - Photo from LDS Media Library
September 21, 1823 – Moroni, now a resurrected being, appeared to Joseph Smith four times over the course of the evening and into the next morning. Repeating his message each time. How important is this work of redemption? It was one of the first things uttered by Moroni to Joseph; and repeated four times. This is what Moroni told Joseph Smith:

“Behold, I will reveal unto you the Priesthood, by the hand of Elijah the prophet, before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the Lord.

“And he shall plant in the hearts of the children the promises made to the fathers, and the hearts of the children shall turn to their fathers.

“If it were not so, the whole earth would be utterly wasted at his coming.”

? What are the promises that were made to the fathers?

? How are they planted in our hearts?
