It has been many years since I have borne my testimony on these boards. Yea, we used to have glorious testimony bearing contests on these boards. But then everyone got offended and stopped. Or I can only assume they got offended, it's the only reason anyone would stop bearing their testimony.
So I would be remiss if I did not bear my testimony today.
I know, beyond a shadow of a doubt, with every fiber of my being, with every fiber supplement that my aging being needs, that this church is true. As many of you know, this was a hard year for me with my company not making the $50,000,000 it usually clears. And as I sat pondering how I wasn't going to be able to give the usual extra 40% I give in tithing, but rather only an extra 35%, the spirit spoke to me.
"Brother Mobegone", it said, "if thou will but give the usual extra 40% thou thee thy dost usually givest, thou wilt be blessed greatly for thy thine thou thine thee faith". I listened to the spirit and wrote the check, and brothers and sisters, the next day I learned that the value of both my European and South American beach houses went up by 10% more this year than expected. And I was able to refinance them and get the Australian beach house I have been wanting.
I hope this illustrates how we are blessed for our faith and obedience.
I say these things in the name, yea even the name, yea even the name that is the name, even he, verily he that is, that was, that will be, even the name.... actually I forgot the name now but whatever it is. Amen.
