We know by the power of the Holy Ghost what words we need to say.
In this painting, this family is praying for God’s family. They want all to have the opportunity to have their DNA healed by the Atonement of Christ.
Their desire is that God’s family be healed emotionally, spiritually, mentally and physically. In their prayer, they are joined by many on the other side of the veil. Many encouraging suggestions are given to each individual as they make their journey up the spiral staircase. This spiral staircase is symbolic of our DNA.
The door way into the spiral stair case represents our willingness to honor the Lord and trust him. We are greeted by the Holy Ghost through the door way of obedience. Your past is behind you, the process of repentance takes a life time, of stepping forward with the encouragement of others.
All steps are individual as we realize our choice and accountability. We also realize that we need to hold hands with those who will truly support us through the process of honoring Christ and His Atonement. Life has much joy when we choose good friends who love the Lord too. As we travel up the stair case, we learn more about sacrifice.
What does it mean to lose ourselves in the service of others; And in serving others, we find ourselves. The Gospel of Christ is not an easy path, but the end result is why we are on that path. This path spirals upward and upward. We learn the proper role of Humility, and how powerful it is. The power of Charity, the pure love of Christ. We learn to speak the truth to be forgiven and to forgive. We do it more quickly and with love. Christ is there with every step, let us feel him and trust him in the process of life.
AS we get to the top we, are met with Christ’s embrace. He leads us to Heavenly Mother and Father’s embrace. Then there is another door way of light at the top Symbolic of Eternal Progression.
The father of the family wears the breast plate of Aaron. This is symbolic of the last gathering of all tribes from the four corners of the earth. That is why the painting is shaped as a diamond representing the four corners of the Earth. The diamond is symbolic of Ephriam and the stewardship of Ephriam as a gatherer. This great gathering happens when the 144,000 + are called are one, and go throughout the whole world to gather all who will come unto Christ and hear his word before the Second Coming. Becoming one, is a great message. Becoming whole is each individuals responsibility and it begins with forgiveness of ourselves and others. May we learn to not take anything personally and be offended. Those who wear the breast plate have great discernment.
Let us join in family prayer! Through inspiration you will know what to ask for!
Moroni 7: 40 and again, my beloved brethren, I would speak unto you concerning hope. How is it that ye can attain unto faith, save ye shall have hope?
41 And what is it that ye shall hope for? Behold I say unto you that ye shall have hope through the atonement of Christ and the power of his resurrection, to be raised unto life eternal, and this because of your faith in him according to the promise.
42 Wherefore, if a man have faith he must needs have hope; for without faith there cannot be any hope. 46 Wherefore, my beloved brethren, if ye have not charity, ye are nothing, for charity never faileth. Wherefore, cleave unto charity, which is the greatest of all, for all things must fail—
47 But charity is the pure love of Christ, and it endureth forever; and whoso is found possessed of it at the last day, it shall be well with him.
48 Wherefore, my beloved brethren, pray unto the Father with all the energy of heart, that ye may be filled with this love, which he hath bestowed upon all who are true followers of his Son, Jesus Christ; that ye may become the sons of God; that when he shall appear we shall be like him, for we shall see him as he is; that we may have this hope; that we may be purified even as he is pure. Amen.
