On Angels–or RS/MP Lesson 47: “‘Praise to the Man’ (Joseph Smith Manual) redux

Our quorum discussion on this one only made it through two quotes. Most of our time was taken by a discussion of the Wilford Woodruff quote that states “…the Prophet of God was administered to by the angels of heaven. They were his teachers, they were his instructors, and all that he did, and all that he performed from the commencement, from that day to the day of his martyrdom, was by the revelation of Jesus Christ”.

We didn’t get much further because we spent most of our time talking about angels. How much Joseph Smith revealed to us about angels and how the whole restored church is set up to place us in the role of angels. No just sitting around listening to nice Sunday sermons for us. We are called and ordained and sent forth as angels–messengers–to teach and serve our fellows.

We observed that through Joseph it was revealed that the Celestial minister to the Terrestrial, and the Terrestrial minister to the Telestial (D&C 76). We talked about how this world is a Telestial world, and when we do our missionary work and (often) our home teaching, we are ministering to the Telestial world. Does that means we should be living at least a Terrestrial law if we are to help and lift those we are to serve? Otherwise we are really just hanging out, and not serving.
