So we know that we need to be baptized, and we know that it is a commandment. But how exactly do we learn of these things that are required to enter into the Fathers presence?
|The symbols for Abydos were first uncovered with the Stargate.|
|This is a wall on Abydos listing a lot more Gate addresses.|
So with the DHD being the Authority to use the Stargate, actually going through the Stargate would represent being Baptized. You can only make it to the other planet, or back into the presence of our Heavenly Father, by going through the Gate.
Thus we see that without both, it won't work. You might know the address of where you want to go, but without actually stepping through the gate you will never get there. Likewise it you go through the Gate without the Authority then you won't go very far. Sure you really really want to get there, and you know where you need to go, but that Authority is what enables you to actually turn on and use the Stargate.
We have to actually go through the Stargate, or in other words, we really do have need to be Baptized by Priesthood Authority. This is the Strait Gate by which we may enter into the Kingdom of Heaven.
Read the Scriptures and they will tell you all things that you should do. Then you will be able to follow the guidance of the Spirit, as well as the words of the Prophets, in journeying back to the Fathers presence.
