When we are baptized in living water, it represents the Living Water that is Christ. Unfortunately, most of us are baptized in dead water (how many living organisms are in any given church's baptismal font? algae? fish? frogs? water skaters? sea life?). Of course, if the symbolism of being baptized in living water is lost on us, I suppose that maybe it doesn't matter anyway - for all the good the symbolism does us.

Then I began thinking of baptism for the dead. Done in temples. Done in dead water. Why? Done for the dead. Seems like there ought to be a connection there.

Strange, isn't it, how some of the symbolism for Christ has eked away without us noticing. Red wine represents the blood of Christ, represents the bitter cup He drank from. A thimbleful of water just doesn't get the same point across as a full cup of bitter red wine. (Someone, I think it was Rock Waterman, said that wine was bitter.)

Search Terms

I was looking at my stats since it has been so long since I was on here. All I can say is, "Good grief! Some of the things that lead people to my site." The terms fall off on a regular basis, and as far as I know, I cannot get a list of all of the ones I've previously had. Anyway, here are the ones I found as I perused in the middle of the night hours.

denver snuffer blogspot (I hope they found his page; he's very profound.)

denver snuffer books (Try and do a search on that site.)

denver snuffer disfellowshipped (Not to my knowledge, but there's a post or two on his site that refers to rumors like that.) (Okay. I hope the first hit was his address, not mine.)

did adam from adam an eve have a beard? (Well, I don't know about "did adam from adam", but I'm pretty confident that Adam had a beard, but Eve did not.)

how did adam and eve brush their hair? (I have wondered this very thing. Since the scriptures don't mention it, we don't know unless we see it in a vision or dream from God.)

how did adam and eve wash their bodies and hair? (Water. I once took a bath in a slightly salty hot springs. It cleaned my body really, really well. It didn't do much for my hair, but I thought if I'd rinsed in non-salty water, it may have felt better. Also, there are plants that have saponin in them. Adam and Eve could have used them. Other than that, we're back to the answer of having a vision.)

jacob 5 second coming (I suppose I have talked about some of these words a time or two. It's a good chapter to study to get an overall view. I expect that, much like the rest of the Book of Mormon, there is a depth there that most of us common members and all of the scholars have never seen.)

All Things Denote There is a God

Every morning, the sun comes up. Sometimes it is hidden from our view by clouds. The sun is a symbol of Christ. He rose early in the morning. He is the light and life of the world. Without the sun, we would die. Without Christ, we would die.

Though our earthly night is dotted with light (which lights are mostly suns) the night still represents life without Christ (who is Light). The Telestial Kingdom, which is compared to the stars, is life without Christ.

Even though we are not totally devoid of light at night (with stars, moon, and artificial lights), those lights cannot hold a candle to the light the sun gives to us. Thus, even the lights at night are a witness that God is "greater than they all." (Not a genuine scripture quote.) In fact, the artificial lights bring to mind the scripture about walking in your own light and in the fire ye have kindled (my computer crashed a while ago, I'm not using my own computer, and the scriptures on are a pain to search through and a pain to use because of the addition of letters to the text, referring to footnotes, thus I am not looking up that scripture. It may be in Isaiah, though).

The rising of the sun bears witness of the resurrection. It bears witness that Christ is the Light and Life of the world.

All of nature bears record of our Savior and Lord. If we had eyes to see, and understanding of the generosity of the signs of God, we would know that - a real knowledge.
