I am a lifetime member, filled a mission in canada, was converted there forever. I thought I had a testimony and had been sharing it for about a year, when we met a Luthren Minsister. My companion was giving him the 1st discussion, and I simply added my testimony that I know Joseph Smith was a Prophet. When suddenly he jumped from his chair and leaned across his coffee table and pointed his finger in my face and shouted,"YOU DO NOT KNOW ANYTHING OF THE KIND, YOU MAY BELIEVE IT, BUT YOU DO NOT KNOW HE WAS A PROPHET! Needless to say, I was taken back, and to this day I do not know what I replied to his charge, but I remember the awful sick feeling I had as I left his home. I suddenly realized, he was right! I realized I really didn't know Joseph Smith was a Prophet! But I had to find out. My parents did not make much money, and they were supporting both me and my older brother who also was on his mission. I realized I could not remain in Canada teaching something I did not believe. I had to know! For the next 3 weeks I studied and prayed every wakeing moment, but still I had not received a witness as promised by Moroni. Than at the end of 3 weeks I decided to go to bed early and pray one last time. I TOLD the Lord if I didn't receive an answer to my prayers by morning, I was going to call the Mission Pres. and request to be sent home, because I could no longer remain here teaching something I did not believe, and wasteing my parents money. I than retired to my bed and began thinking about all the things I had been studying the past 3 weeks, when I noticed a tingling sensation in my feet. I supposed I was pinching a nerve and my feet were going to sleep, so I adjusted myself than continued my thoughts. Shortly I noticed the sensation had moved up to my knees so I moved again than continued my thinking. By now this tingling sensation was at my waste, but I just ignored it, and instead just let out a big breath of air and out loud said,"Is Joseph Smith really a Prophet?" When suddenly this sensation jumped from my waste into my chest and increased 10 times over. I was shocked, but surprised at how warm and wonderful I felt. I noticed that this happened when I ask that question. So I tried it again,"Is Joseph Smith really a Prophet?" And as before this sensation jumped from my chest to the top of my head so that I was completely enveloped from head to toe, and as before this wonderful sensation increased over and over again. I felt so good I wanted to ask that question again and again, but something prevented me from doing so! All I could say was "Joseph Smith is a Prophet!" I than started to weep, I was so filled with the spirit, I now knew the truth. Than I heard a voice speak to my mind, "Yes Hugh, Joseph Smith is truely a Prophet of God, and the book of Mormon does contain my gospel, it is true, and this indeed is my one and only true Church on earth!" Than I had the most powerful impression that if I needed a greater witness I should kneel by my bed and pray and Jesus Christ would appear if I desired! But than I also received the impression that I didn't need any further witness, I had received a sure witness from the Holy ghost. As I rose the next morning this sensation was still with me and remained with me all day. In fact this sensation remained with me for the next 30 days and nights, before it subsided. I know Joseph Smith is a Prophet of god called to restore this Church and gospel to the earth in the Latter days. I know the Book of Mormon is the word of god and yes , this Church is the one and only true Church on the earth today for I have heard the voice of the Lord declare it so. I bare you this witness in the name of Jesus Christ Amen.........Hugh
That is a very interesting testimony Whew, thanks for sharing. Sad how often member say flipantly that 'they know...' but they really never take the time to truly find out as you have done. Look forward to your posts in the many Gospel topics we have here.
Wow Hugh, thanks for that touching testimony. It full my eyes with tears...it is great to know the way you obtained your testimony about Joseph Smith! :) I look forward to discuss LDS doctrine with you. God bless :)
Well as many of you may already know I am a fairly new convert to the LDS faith... My Story is kinda long so if you really want to read it, go to my website and check out my testimony section... https://mylds.vze.com
