Who was God speaking to when he made this unconditional promise?
He was speaking to seven of the first laborers in the last kingdom. This promise was made in 1832. He had previously promised this quorum of Apostles in 1830 that they would gather the elect prior to the Lords coming in glory:
"to prepare their hearts and be prepared in all things against the day when tribulation and desolation are sent forth upon the wicked.." (Section 29)
I recently blogged about the mystical quorum of the seven that God spoke to in sections 29 & 84. These people will rend the kingdoms of the world and gather the elect when the 3rd Watch begins.. These two sections and the unconditional promises contained within them are directed to the "Seven Shepherds" spoken of in Micah and the "Seven Eyes of the Lord" spoken of in Zechariah.
If you believe that God has all knowledge, that he cannot lie, that all time, past present and future are continually before his eyes giving him infinite foreknowledge, then you certainly must believe ALL of the unconditional promises he makes to people in modern revelation.
I offer the promises contained in these two sections of the Doctrine and Covenants as evidence number 50 that the Marvelous Work and a Wonder did not start when the church was restored back in 1830 through the Prophet Joseph Smith... it was to be a future event, one that would take place in the 3rd Watch.
Intrigued about this cryptic quorum of Seven Apostles that had been called to the ministry long before the 12 Apostles were chosen by the three witnesses?
