This well known D&C missionary section was given through the Prophet Joseph Smith to his father Joseph Smith, Sr. in 1829. Verses 1 and 4 really ring out with enthusiasm.
Verse 1 – Now behold, a marvelous work is about to come forth among the children of men.
Verse 4 – For behold, the field is white and ready to harvest; and lo, he that thrusteth in his sickle with his might, the same layeth up in store that he perisheth not, but bringeth salvation to his soul.
Elder Joseph Fielding Smith once said these seven verses contain sufficient counsel and instruction for a lifetime of study. He told us it was a revelation to each member of the Church, especially those holding the Priesthood. Then he went on to say no elder was qualified to teach in the Church or to carry the message of Salvation to the world “until he has absorbed, in part a least, this heaven-sent instruction.” (Church History and Modern Revelation 1:35).
As this is one of the scriptures prospective missionaries learn, we tried to match some of that enthusiasm in our Mormon Wordle of Doctrine and Covenants Section 4. We ran it through our normal Mormon Wordle processes, then embossed it, and hit it with a some colored light.
The text and wordle above were originally on our Mormon Wordles dot Com site, but were moved here in early 2017.
