The Scriptures Are A Blessing - June 27, 2016

Hello Good morning and Namaste to all my friends and my family.

How are you doing?
We have been blessed by God this  week because it's raining most of the time here.But other days are still hot and humid.

This week i have been pondering in Scriptures a-lot. It is such a wonderful gift of God to us which helps us to know who we really are and what we should do in order to have  eternal life .

1 Nephi 15:23-24
 23. And they said unto me: What meaneth the rod of iron which our father saw, that led to the tree?
 24. And I said unto them that it was the word of God; and whoso would hearken unto the word of God, and would hold fast unto it, they would never perish; neither could the temptations and the fiery darts of the adversary overpower them unto blindness, to lead them away to destruction.
In this vision the tree of life, the iron rod is the only way someone can reach the tree of life.  Holding on to the rod of iron is not easy.  There are so many obstacle on the way. Some people find the way very hard and give-up and some are driven away by temptations of Satan.
But those people who hold tightly to the Iron rod will reach the Tree of life feel the love of God and receive Eternal Life.  
Here the tree of life is Eternal Life and the Iron rod which leads to it is the word of God. So it is very Essential to hold onto the Scriptures every day of our life so that at the end they will lead us to Eternal life.  To earn Eternal Life should be our goal, because that is where true happiness can be found.
With Love
