I Hold The Keys!

“In 1976 an area general conference was held in Copenhagen, Denmark. Following the closing session, President Spencer W. Kimball desired to visit the Vor Frue Church, where the Thorvaldsen statues of the Christus and of the Twelve Apostles stand. . . .

“In Peter’s hand, depicted in marble, is a set of heavy keys. President Kimball pointed to those keys and explained what they symbolized. Then, in an act I shall never forget, he turned to President Benthin [of the Copenhagen stake] and with unaccustomed firmness pointed his finger at him and said, ‘I want you to tell everyone in Denmark that I hold the keys! We hold the real keys, and we use them every day.’

“I will never forget that declaration, that testimony from the prophet. The influence was spiritually powerful; the impression was physical in its impact.”

This post effected my profoundly! President Kimball was a True Inspiration. As I read I could feel the spirit testify to me that what I read was True.
