“If Ye Are Prepared Ye Shall Not Fear”

The fact that the Lord Almighty will take care of his people during these latter days of stress and trial became fixed in my mind very early. The Lord has said concerning the latter days in the parable of the ten virgins: ‘For they that are wise and have received the truth, and have taken the Holy Spirit for their guide, and have not been deceived … shall not be hewn down’ (D&C 45:57). I think we are not safe because we say we intend to do what’s right. I think the people who are safe are those who have taken the Holy Spirit for their guide and have not been deceived. To have the Holy Spirit with us as the Lord speaks of it here is to be guided by revelation from heaven.


“They that are wise and have received the truth, and have taken the Holy Spirit for their guide, and have not been deceived.” ...we are not safe because we say we intend to do what’s right. ...the people who are safe are those who have taken the Holy Spirit for their guide and have not been deceived. These are they who shall not be hewn down and cast into the fire, but shall abide the day.
...the Savior was talking about the Holy Ghost when he said, “those who have taken the Holy Spirit for their guide.” The Holy Ghost is the spirit of truth. To have the Holy Spirit with us... ... means, to be guided by revelation from heaven. I know that such guidance can be had.

Back when the telegraph was the fastest method of long-distance communication, a young man applied for a job as a Morse Code operator. When he came for interview, he noticed that the office was filled with noise and clatter, including the sound of the telegraph in the background. The receptionist instructed him and all the other applicants, to wait until they were called to enter the inner office.
After a few minutes, the young man stood up and walked right into the office. The other applicants were confused as they didn’t hear anybody being called. They assumed the young man went in by mistake and that he would be disqualified.
Within a few minutes, however, the employer escorted the young man out of the office and said to the other applicants, “Gentlemen, thank you very much for coming, but the job has just been filled.”
The other applicants grumbled, and one spoke up saying, “Wait a minute, I don’t understand. He was the last to come in, and we never even got a chance to be interviewed. Yet he got the job. That’s not fair!”
The employer said, “I’m sorry, but the last several minutes while you’ve been sitting here, the telegraph has been ticking out the following message in Morse Code: ‘If you understand this message, then come right in. The job is yours.’ None of you heard it or understood it. This young man did. The job is his.”

When I read this story, the one thing that really struck me was how the other applicants missed their one chance to get the job just because they weren’t paying careful attention. They could have been sitting there thinking about the interview questions, wondering how they’re gonna impress the interviewer and how to position themselves above the other applicants. Some of them may have been mustering all the wits they could summon, concerned about how to make an excellent first impression. They were too ready, they were too focused. Unfortunately, they forgot to listen.
