“For behold, this is my work and my glory—to bring to pass the immortality and eternal life of man.”
Moses saw a vision where the Lord told him that he was a son of God. That knowledge helped him to overcome the temptations of Satan which followed the inspiring revelation. Moses had learned that he could call on the name of the Lord when he needed help.
Abraham saw a vision where he also learned that he was a son of God, and he saw many things the Lord had created. Abraham saw our pre-earth life. The Lord told Abraham that he was chosen before he was born to be one of the “noble and great ones.” Abraham was taught that Jesus Christ was chosen to be our Savior, and that the earth was created as a place where we could learn and be tested.
Heavenly Father loves us, and it is His work and glory to help us return to Him.
“There is much we can learn from Moses’s mighty response to temptation from the adversary. I invite you to respond in the same way when you feel influenced by temptation. Command the enemy of your soul by saying: ‘Go away! You have no glory. Do not tempt or lie to me! For I know I am a child of God. And I will always call upon my God for His help.'”
