I’ve gone from considering Saul’s conversion and the sacrifices of the early members of the meridian church.
“and when he falls he shall rise again, for his sacrifice shall be more sacred unto me than his increase, saith the Lord.”
Later in the same section:
“and in the due time he shall be made a merchant unto my name, saith the Lord, for the benefit of my people.
“Therefore let no man despise my servant Oliver Granger, but let the blessings of my people be on him forever and ever.
“And again, verily I say unto you, let all my servants in the land of Kirtland remember the Lord their God, and mine house also, to keep and preserve it holy, and to overthrow the moneychangers in mine own due time, saith the Lord. Even so. Amen.”
(I feel that this is given to me this morning, and that the word “merchant” could easily be replaced with “producer”.)
