1 Nephi 1:9 Sharing the Light

1 Nephi 1:9

Glory- Sharing the light.

Lehi saw One (Jesus) descending out of heaven. He beheld his luster was above that of the sun at noon-day.

Lehi was about to receive a great message. He was having a vision and seeing Christ descending affirms the authenticity of his vision. Seeing his luster would confirm his divinity.

Joseph Smith saw this luster and described it as whose brightness and glory defy all description. And that the light was above the brightness of the sun.
Acts 26:13 Paul recounts his vision. “I saw a light from heaven above the brightness of the sun, shining round about me.
Revelations 1:16 John sees the Lord and said “His countenance was as the sun shineth in His strength.

JSH:30 Joseph Smith describes Moroni, his robe was of exquisite whiteness beyond anything earthly. His whole person was glorious beyond description and His countenance like lightening.” The room was exceedingly light but mostly around his person.

D&C 76:70 Whose bodies are celestial whose glory is that of the sun, even the glory of God the highest of all

D&C 58:3 Glory follows much tribulation.

Isa. 6:3 The whole earth is full of His Glory

Rev. 1:16
John sees the Lord and said “His countenance was as the sun shineth in his strength.”

Acts 26:13 see quote above.

JSH:30 All tell of the glory of His countenance.

the glory we seek to earn in this life is to be like Him.
D&C 58:3-4
4...after much tribulations cometh the blessings, wherefore the day cometh that ye shall be crowned with much glory...
To obtain this glory, we must be faithful in our trials and see the big picture of the Celestial Kingdom as the reward for remaining strong and steadfast and to do what is right. Not murmuring! Share the glory.

“Our small acts of faith and service are how most of us can continue in God and eventually bring eternal light and glory to our family, our friends, and our associates. You truly carry a circle of influence with you!
