The Priesthood is Restored | 15 May 2018

Scripture

“This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come.” —2 Timothy 3:1

Quote

“We need to understand the need for the restoration of the doctrine, organization, and keys of authority in these latter days. We need to have a witness that the Prophet Joseph Smith was divinely chosen and appointed by the Lord to bring about this restoration and recognize that he organized the Church after the organization that existed in Christ’s Church anciently.” Bonnie L. Oscarson

This Day in LDS History

1829: John the Baptist confers the Aaronic Priesthood on Joseph Smith and Oliver Cowdery on the banks of the Susquehanna River near Harmony, Pennsylvania, and instructs them to baptize each other and ordain each other to the Aaronic Priesthood.
1844: Josiah Quincy, a future mayor of Boston, visits Joseph Smith in Nauvoo and later states: “It is by no means improbable that some future textbook…will contain a question something like this: What historical American of the nineteenth century has exerted the most powerful influence upon the destinies of his countrymen? And is by no means impossible that the answer…may thus be written: Joseph Smith, the Mormon Prophet.”
1977: The Caracas Venezuela Stake, the first stake in Venezuela, is organized.
