Thank heavens the weather here has favored the cooler temps because the A/C in our van isn’t working. And I have been putting off the expensive fix for a while now. But with no A/C in a 15 passenger van, the summer will be a Death Valley vacation on wheels. Sad thing is, I remember when A/C was a l-u-x-u-r-y. It wasn't until I was in Junior High that our family vehicle had the exhilaration of cold air blowing through our hair when the window was closed. Do luxuries always have to become necessities?
And when the
armies of the Lamanites[1/3 of the hosts of heaven] saw that the people of Nephi[spirits who chose to follow Father's plan], or that Moroni[Jesus Christ], had prepared his people with breastplates and with arm-shields, yea, and also shields to defend their heads, and also they were dressed with thick clothing [think a physical body WITH the Armor of God] —
Now the army of
Zerahemnah[Lucifer] was not prepared with any such thing; they had only their swords and their cimeters, their bows and their arrows, their stones and their slings [aka temptations of EVERY kind] ; and they were naked [they had no physical body], save it were a skin which was girded about their loins; yea, all were naked, save it were the Zoramites and the Amalekites[sons of perdition];
But they were not armed with breastplates, nor shields [they
did not,no, they could not have the Armor of God]—therefore, they were exceedingly afraid of the armies of the Nephites[children of Christ] because of their armor, notwithstanding their number being so much greater than the Nephites[those of the Church of God].
