God Lets His Prophets See The Future

1 Ne. 10: 17

17 17 And it came to pass after I, Nephi, having heard all the awords• of my father, concerning the things which he saw in a bvision•, and also the things which he spake by the power of the Holy Ghost, which power he received by faith on the Son of God—and the Son of God was the cMessiah who should come—I, Nephi, was ddesirous• also that I might see, and hear, and know of these things, by the power of the eHoly• Ghost, which is the fgift of God unto gall• those who diligently seek him, as well in times of hold• as in the time that he should manifest himself unto the children of men.

Having a dream and seeing into the future is what prophets do. I would like to do that... I need to have the right reasons - not to "consume it upon my lusts" that is. I need to have the correct priorities - for God's Glory and Kingdom.

I have to remember that I am in a "business" for God's profit here, and I'm like a servant who wants to be an employee. Prophets are employees of God. Missionaries are too. Some leaders too.

I would love to be employed by God. I guess I am... in my own home.

So pray for the sins and repentance of others and have visions of the future. Can it happen to me?
