Brand new softcover pamphlet! ; This discourse, given in 1887 at a General Conference session, discusses what blood sacrifice is and why it is important to the Saints. Recalling Adam and Eve, and their sacrifice, he then goes on throughout history recounting other great sacrifies, including that of Abraham and Jesus Christ.
Elder Richards states, "There is very little said in early history about sacrificing, but on momentous occasions it never was forgotten." He also teaches us that "the ordinance of sacrifice was instituted ... To perpetuate the memory of the great sacrifice of Christ until the redeemer should come, to establish it in the hearts of Adam's children, that they might never forget it, that they might look forward to that time, exercise faith in that being, ..."
Other precious gems of knowledge which we are favored with in this discourse include:
Death: "We look at it as but a stepping stone from one apartment of God's great creation to another."
Baptism of Adam: "the holy spirit gathered Adam up, and put him under the water and brought him out of the water. "
Sacrament: "he instituted that supper as a subject, as an ordinance, a means by which his memory, after he had gone, had departed, should be perpetuated. And this supper has come to us, and it is for this that we partake of the sacrament." ; The FIG Project Series; 5.5" x 8.5"; 13 pages
