What are even a few million humble followers of Christ as compared to billions of unbelievers?

The road is long, and the adversary is going to impede your entire journey. You’re going to face obstacles, and you’re going to have to deal with them.
.
With the millions of faithful followers, how do we withstand the powers and pressures of things like communism and Islam, of Buddhism, Confucianism, and all of the sects of a world Christiandom?
.
How can we preserve our integrity and ways of worship in the face of atheism and infidelity, organized crime, and when we are subject to governmental controls of education, unemployment, and the plagues of war in this wicked world?
.
These are all ideas I’ve studied, as I read from the words of Elder Bruce R. McConkie. Great things to ponder.
.
Is it even possible to gain a perfect knowledge of God and His Heavenly Kingdom while we consider and personally face all of those above issues and conflicts?
.
It is!
.
”Members of the earthly Church ”who overcome by faith” shall be members of ”the church of the Firstborn” in the highest heaven of the celestial world. D&C 76:53-54.
.
Such persons, however, need not await that celestial day to gain a perfect knowledge of God and His Heavenly Kingdom.”
.
So, how is this possible? In the Doctrine and Covenants, we learn how. Let’s look at D&C 107:18-19.
.
”The power and authority of the higher, or Melchizedek Priesthood, is to hold the keys of all the spiritual blessings of the church—
.
To have the privilege of receiving the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven, to have the heavens opened unto them, to commune with the general assembly and church of the Firstborn, and to enjoy the communion and presence of God the Father, and Jesus, the mediator of the new covenant.”
.
The Lord’s church is on earth again, and it has the most influence for good upon man and nations in our day. We are a ”standard for the Nation.” D&C 115:5.
.
The authority of the Priesthood is what separates Millions compared to the Billions. It’s what makes that long road bearable and will allow you to get to your end destination—the kingdom of God.
.
Hear Him & Walk with him. You will find the Kingdom of God on earth!
