What is the First Vision?

Jared Perez
Now a days that we have a lot of questions about religion, when all the world is trying to find the true, our Heavenly Father provide away to know the true of all things. As He has called prophets, we needed one now a days, as a young boy, Joseph Smith being tough by his family about religion he wanted to know what church is the true, what is the true religion. Reading the bible he read a passage which says, "If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of god, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not: and it shall be given him." (James 1:5) In the spring of 1820, Joseph being move by faith, being move by his desire to know the truth, he went to a grove of trees near his home and he prayed with all his desire to know the truth, Heavenly Father answer his pray. Heavenly Father and His Son, Jesus Christ, appeared to him. Joseph wrote: “When the light rested upon me I saw two Personages, whose brightness and glory defy all description, standing above me in the air. One of them spake unto me, calling me by name and said, pointing to the other—This is My Beloved Son. Hear Him!” Joseph was told to join none of the churches that existed at that time as the priesthood authority and Church as Jesus Christ had organized it when He was on the earth had been lost over the centuries. Joseph Smith's First Vision, was the key for the Restoration of the Church of Jesus Christ in earth once more. Show more Show less
