Modern Witnesses of Jesus Christ

I highly recommend visiting this site, which contains personal witnesses of Jesus Christ, and the individuals' journeys to seeing the Lord.

Latter Day Witnesses

It does happen still today. And it can to any individual who follows D&C 93:1.

The Lullaby of Slumber and the Song of Morning

"Wherefore he saith, Awake thou that sleepest, and arise from the dead, and Christ shall give thee light." Ephesians 5:14

The song of morning will always sound discordant while the song of slumber plays. They are not harmonious. The one rudely bids the sleeper wake, while the other flatters them to sleep in an endless lullaby. It is only when one disregards the song of slumber entirely that the beauty of the song of morning can at last be heard, at last be understood, and then the desire to slumber away is far gone, and the song that beckons one back to their pillows becomes the one that sounds discordant.

Any food eaten while slumbering, any drink that is drunk, is done in dream and cannot nourish our bellies. "Yea, it shall be unto them, even as unto a hungry man which dreameth, and behold he eateth but he awaketh and his soul is empty; or like unto a thirsty man which dreameth, and behold he drinketh but he awaketh and behold he is faint, and his soul hath appetite..." 2 Nephi 27:3.

It does not end with waking. Waking is the morning, and there is the day to get through. The journey is only beginning and pursuing it remains the responsibility of the waker. Where will you go? What will you do?
