Can You Feel A Gathering Starting To Happen
By Alan Osmond
“And he laid hold on the dragon, that old serpent,
which is the Devil, and Satan, and bound him a thousand years,
And cast him into the bottomless pit, and shut him up and
set a seal upon him, that he should deceive the nations no more,
till the thousand years should be fulfilled;
and after that he must be loosed a little season.
And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them,
and judgment was given unto them:
and I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus,
and for the word of God, and which had not worshipped the beast,
neither his image, neither had received his mark upon their foreheads,
or in their hands; and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years.”
Revelation 20: 2-4

During These Troubled Times…
‘Stick To The Ship Of ZION’
“Stick to the ship of Zion.”
(The word Zion has various meanings in the scriptures. The most general definition of the word is “the pure in heart” (D&C 97:21).
If boats come to the side, showing beautiful colors and making wonderful promises, do not get off the ship to go to the shore on any other boat; but keep on the ship. If you are badly used by any of those that are on the ship, who have not got the proper spirit, remember the ship itself is all right.
We should not allow our minds to become soured because of anything that the people on the ship may do to us; the ship is all right, and the officers are all right, and we will be right if we stick to the ship. I can assure you it will take you right into the land of glory”.
So it is with the Holy Scriptures and those truths of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
Like our latter-day Prophets, I feel that in these last days we are advancing and receiving higher learning and education. We are advancing to a higher condition and sphere and to a higher plane, and we are receiving such an education that the wisdom of the world with all its attainments and false doctrines and principles will have no effect upon the true believers, for they are rising above the theories and hypothesis of human inventions and soaring in things of truth that raise the mind, exalt the understanding, and establishing them[selves] more and more fully in the true principles of life and glory. We are filled in our hearts with these truths and we cannot tell the day or the hour in which our faith has been increased, but we feel, when we look back over the last week, month or year, that we have increased in faith and in the knowledge of faith and power of God; we know that we have become nearer to our God, our Father.
Every man and woman has got to learn to stand upon his/her own knowledge; he or she cannot depend upon his neighbor; each must be independent; must depend upon his and her God entirely. It depends upon yourself to see if you will stem the tide of trouble and overcome the impediments that are strewn in the pathway of life to prevent your progress. You can get information by the operations of the Holy Spirit, and you make approaches to God which increases your faith in proportion as to your diligence. It is impossible to advance in the principles of truth, to increase in heavenly knowledge, [unless] we exercise our reasoning faculties and exert ourselves in a proper manner.
It is just so in regard to matters that pertain to the things of God. We have to exert ourselves and go from grace to grace, to get the law of action so incorporated in our systems, that it may be natural to do those things that are required of us.
As we dig deep into the things of God and remain faithful, our religion becomes a part of our being. Never before has so much wickedness resided upon the earth. We need more than ever to be filled with more knowledge of spiritual things!
Beware! I know of nothing Satan uses quite so cunningly or cleverly in his work on a young man or woman in your present circumstances. I speak of doubt—especially self-doubt—of discouragement, and of despair. In our lives, individually and collectively, there surely are serious threats to our happiness. Remember, “Trouble has no necessary connection with discouragement— discouragement has a germ of its own.”
If you are trying hard to live right and things still seem burdensome and difficult, take heart. Others have walked that way before you. Always remember when you pray, to ask for that which you desire. The has Lord told us, “Ask and ye shall receive.” “Knock, and it shall be opened unto you.” But, getting answers to your prayers first requires you to do your part in studying and pondering upon those things in which you are seeking answers.
“Behold, you have not understood; you have supposed that I would give it unto you when you took no thought, save it was to ask me; but, behold, I say unto you, that you must study it out in your mind; then you must ask me if it be right, and if it is right I will cause that your bosom shall burn within you,” etc. D&C 9
Truth never changes. Those of the adversary may mock and belittle those who are believers who stand for that which they believe, but when we are on the Lord’s side, regardless of numbers or worldly power, we are in the majority!
I testify that the truths which we believe are still true today and “They that be with us are more than they that be with them”. 2 Kings. 6:16
“Choose you this day whom ye will serve: … but as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.” Joshua. 24:15

At The End Of The Road
“And moreover, I would desire that ye should consider
on the blessed and happy state of those that keep
the commandments of God. For behold, they are blessed in
all things, both temporal and spiritual; and if they
hold out faithful to the end they are received into heaven,
that thereby they may dwell with God in a state of
never-ending happiness. O remember, remember
that these things are true; for the Lord God hath spoken it.”

What You Do In Life Matters
“Trust in the Lord with all thine heart;
and lean not unto thine own understanding.
In all thy ways acknowledge him,
and he shall direct thy paths.
Be not wise in thine own eyes:
fear the Lord, and depart from evil.”
2,636 Articles of Strength…So Far!

2,636 Articles of Strength… So Far!!!
I can’t believe that since I started publishing articles at TheFamily.com, I have posted 2,636 articles of Strength for The Family… so far!
You can do a SEARCH at TheFamily.com and find various words of truth with everything from ‘Daily Inspiration’ to various ways of Strengthening The Family Physically, Mentally, Socially, Spiritually, and Financially!
Why did I do it? Because ever since my Mother and Father taught me and my brothers and sister the love of learning and about the gospel of Jesus Christ, I was taught to always give back, and to “sanctify the Lord God in your hearts: and be ready always to give an answer to every man that asketh you a reason of the hope that is in you with meekness and fear.”
1 Peter 3:15
With that ‘hope within me’, I wanted to reach out to help others and share those ‘pearls of truths’ and experiences of life which I had learned and know to be true, instead of “Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth.” 2 Timothy 3:7
Since I got started learning about the internet business many years ago and was personally taught html programming and publishing by a friend and mentor, Dave Brewer, I purchased several websites of various interest with TheFamily.com being of the most interest as The Family is the basic unit of society which God brings about the work of His children.
I hope you will go to my website and select “SEARCH” with some key words that are of interest to you. I also hope that if you find some truths which I have, that you will seek and find more and obtain the happiness I have from adopting those truths into my own life.
“And shall find wisdom and great treasures of knowledge,
even hidden treasures.” D&C 89:19

My humble prayer…
to all those I’ve come to know…
…with charity that we all may become…
… until we have unity of faith.
“Charity suffereth long, and is kind, and envieth not, and is not puffed up, seeketh not her own, is not easily provoked, thinketh no evil, and rejoiceth not in iniquity but rejoiceth in the truth, beareth all things, believeth all things, hopeth all things, endureth all things.”
Moroni 7:45; 1 Corinthians 13:4-7

Utah is where our family was born, where we grew up, moved from, and then came back to!
When we were young and sang Barbershop harmony as a quartet, we moved to California to be on a weekly television show called The Andy Williams Show. We spent 7 years doing that and then got into the record business and writing songs that appealed to our own peers.
After having much success and in making many friends worldwide, we started doing television again with The Donny and Marie Show and all the family got involved in the production of it. We missed not being in Utah and so my family asked me to meet with the President of ABC Television, Fred Silverman, and ask him to allow us to move the TV Series to Utah! Mr. Silverman said, “What’s in Utah?” “Is there a TV Studio there?” I said, “No, but there will be!” We showed him our production plans for the construction and finally he approved us to move it to Utah during the mid-season that following year. We knew it was ambitious but we felt inspired to follow our promptings so we pushed all the “go buttons” to build The Osmond Studios, a state of the art Television and Production Studio in Orem, Utah!
We Osmonds loved music and we traveled around the world many times singing it but when we finished our tours, we also loved to go back home and be with all of our families!
We sang a song called, “Hello Utah” that reminded everyone of a most wonderful place to live. We wanted all of our friends and neighbors to know how much we enjoyed growing up in Utah, going to school, making friends, marring their daughters and son, and for all of our grandkids to do the same!
It was 1981 and we all now had families while performing and we were missing them and our wives, so we decided to stop touring for a while and went back home to Utah! I love staying busy so that’s when I started a live stadium event called, “Stadium of Fire”! I loved fireworks and as Executive Producer of The Donny & Marie TV Series and other Osmond productions, I soon learned that it wasn’t “television”…. but tele-VISION!!!!! People loved to SEEEEEEEEE something fun and exciting. Fireworks was my thing! I loved lighting up the sky to music and even set a Guinnes Book of Records for lighting a MILLION firecrackers in 6 seconds!
We are now into our 36th year of this sold out celebrity fireworks spectacular with a focus on God, Family, Freedom, and Country!
We all moved to Branson, Missouri where we had The Osmond Family Theater where we worked for 10 years. We were in one place and the audiences traveled to see us instead of us to them! It worked out great.
Times have changed. We are now living in day of unsure times when there is much wickedness and turbulence in the world. The future seems so corrupt and most unsure. But, with faith and hope, trusting in the Lord and by being wise, we can plan for those great days and tomorrows ahead! We have something that we know will help.
I am older and hopefully a little wiser. Suzanne and I are now involved in another global project that is blessing families and businesses all around the world. It also helps feed a million hungry children every year, right here in the U.S.A.!
I would like to invite all of our friends, neighbors, and business associates to come and visit with Suzanne and me at our offices in Orem, Utah. Or, contact me below, so that we can arrange to show you what we are doing!

Pray About It!
Earth life, though brief, is crucial to us in our quest for eternal life.
Here we receive bodies of flesh and bones and are tested in all things.
Those who learn obedience and gain self-mastery will return to live
with God the Eternal Father.
“All of us are but a few years removed from the Eternal Presence,
from him whose children we are and in whose house we dwelt.
All of us are separated by a thin veil only from the friends and
fellow laborers with whom we served on the Lord’s errand
before our eternal spirits took up their abodes in tabernacles of clay”
Bruce R. McConkie
“In my Father’s house are many mansions:
if it were not so, I would have told you.
I go to prepare a place for you.”
