They knew the Christ

Ether saw
the days of Christ.

Seek Jesus

We shall meet before
the judgment-seat of Christ,
where all men shall know
that my garments are
not spotted with your blood.

And then shall ye know
that I have seen Jesus,
and that he hath talked
with me face to face,
and that he told me
in plain humility,
even as a man telleth another
in mine own language,
concerning these things;
and only a few have I written,
because of my weakness in writing.

And now, I would commend you
to seek this Jesus
of whom the prophets and
apostles have written,
that the grace of God the Father,
and also the Lord Jesus Christ,
and the Holy Ghost,
which beareth record of them,
may be and abide in you forever.

The pure love of Christ

And I was comforted, and said:
O Lord, thy righteous will be done,
for I know that thou workest
unto the children of men
according to their faith.

I also remember
that thou hast said that
thou hast prepared
a house for man, yea, even
among the mansions of thy Father,
in which man might have
a more excellent hope;
wherefore man must hope,
or he cannot receive an inheritance
in the place which thou hast prepared.

And again, I remember
that thou hast said that
thou hast loved the world,
even unto the laying down
of thy life for the world,
that thou mightest take it again
to prepare a place
for the children of men.

And now I know that this love
which thou hast had for
the children of men is charity.

Through faith in Christ

And neither at any time
hath any wrought miracles
until after their faith;
wherefore they first
believed in the Son of God.

God's Son

In the gift of his Son
hath God prepared
a more excellent way.

Faith in Jesus Christ

It was by faith that
Christ showed himself
unto our fathers, after
he had risen from the dead;
and he showed not himself
unto them until after
they had faith in him;
wherefore, it must needs be
that some had faith in him,
for he showed himself
not unto the world.

But because of the faith of men
he has shown himself unto the world,
and glorified the name of the Father,
and prepared a way that thereby
others might be partakers
of the heavenly gift, that they might
hope for those things
which they have not seen.

Wherefore, ye may also have hope,
and be partakers of the gift,
if ye will but have faith.

Come to the Father through Christ

And this work,
in the which shall
be shown forth
the power of God
and also his word,
of which the Father,
and the Son,
and the Holy Ghost
bear record—
and all this shall stand
as a testimony
against the world
at the last day.

And if it so be
that they repent and
come unto the Father
in the name of Jesus,
they shall be received
into the kingdom of God.

Thus saith Christ

And in that day that they shall
exercise faith in me, saith the Lord
that they may become
sanctified in me, then will I
manifest unto them all my revelations,
saith Jesus Christ, the Son of God,
the Father of the heavens
and of the earth, and
all things that in them are.

And he that will contend
against the word of the Lord,
let him be accursed; and
he that shall deny these things,
let him be accursed;
for unto them will I show
no greater things,
saith Jesus Christ;
for I am he who speaketh.

And he that believeth not my words
believeth not my disciples;
and if it so be that I do not speak,
judge ye; for ye shall know that
it is I that speaketh, at the last day.

But he that believeth
these things which I have spoken,
him will I visit with the
manifestations of my Spirit,
and he shall know and bear record.

For because of my Spirit he shall know
that these things are true;
for it persuadeth men to do good.

And whatsoever thing
persuadeth men to do good is of me;
for good cometh of none save it be of me.

I am the same that
leadeth men to all good;
he that will not believe my words
will not believe me—that I am;
and he that will not believe me
will not believe the Father who sent me.

For behold, I am the Father,
I am the light, and the life,
and the truth of the world.

Come unto me, O ye Gentiles,
and I will show unto you
the greater things.

Therefore, repent
all ye ends of the earth,
and come unto me,
and believe in my gospel,
and be baptized in my name;
for he that believeth and
is baptized shall be saved;
but he that believeth not
shall be damned;
and signs shall follow them
that believe in my name.

And blessed is he
that is found faithful
unto my name at the last day,
for he shall be lifted up
to dwell in the kingdom
prepared for him from
the foundation of the world.

And behold it is
I that hath spoken it.

Nothing Doubting

And now Jesus showed himself
unto this man in the spirit,
And he ministered unto him
that this man might
know that he was God,
because of the many
great works which the Lord
had showed unto him.

And because of
the knowledge of this man
he could not be kept from
beholding within the veil;
and he saw Jesus and
he had faith no longer,
for he knew, nothing doubting.

Wherefore, having this
perfect knowledge of God,
he could not be kept
from within the veil;
therefore he saw Jesus;
and he did minister unto him.

And the Lord commanded
the brother of Jared
to go down out of the mount
from the presence of the Lord,
and write the things
which he had seen;
and they were forbidden
to come unto
the children of men
until after that he should
be lifted up upon the cross
that they should not
come unto the world
until after Christ should
show himself unto his people.

And after Christ truly had
showed himself unto his people
he commanded that
they should be made manifest.

He is Jesus Christ

And the Lord said unto him:
Because of thy faith thou hast seen that
I shall take upon me flesh and blood;
and never has man come before me
with such exceeding faith as thou hast.

And the Lord said unto him:
Believest thou the words
which I shall speak?

And he answered: Yea, Lord,
I know that thou speakest the truth,
for thou art a God of truth, and canst not lie.

And when he had said these words,
behold, the Lord showed himself unto him,
and said: Because thou knowest these things
ye are redeemed from the fall; therefore
ye are brought back into my presence;
therefore I show myself unto you.

Behold, I am he
who was prepared from
the foundation of the world
to redeem my people.

Behold, I am Jesus Christ.

I am the Father and the Son.

In me shall all mankind have life,
and that eternally, even they
who shall believe on my name;
and they shall become
my sons and my daughters.

And never have I showed myself unto
man whom I have created, for never
has man believed in me as thou hast.

Seest thou that ye are created
after mine own image?

Yea, even all men were created
in the beginning after mine own image.

Behold, this body,
which ye now behold,
is the body of my spirit;
and man have I created
after the body of my spirit;
and even as I appear unto thee
to be in the spirit will I appear
unto my people in the flesh.

Through faith on Christ

And behold, these things
which we have desired
concerning our brethren,
yea, even their restoration
to the knowledge of Christ,
are according to the prayers
of all the saints
who have dwelt in the land.

And may the Lord Jesus Christ
grant that their prayers
may be answered
according to their faith;
and may God the Father
remember the covenant
which he hath made
with the house of Israel;
and may he bless them forever,
through faith on
the name of Jesus Christ.

In the name of Christ

See that ye are
not baptized unworthily;
see that ye partake not of
the sacrament of Christ unworthily;
but see that ye
do all things in worthiness, and
do it in the name of Jesus Christ,
the Son of the living God;
and if ye do this,
and endure to the end,
ye will in nowise be cast out.

Despise not the Christ

And now, behold,
who can stand against
the works of the Lord?

Who can deny his sayings?

Who will rise up against
the almighty power of the Lord?

Who will despise
the works of the Lord?

Who will despise
the children of Christ?

Behold, all ye who are despisers
of the works of the Lord,
for ye shall wonder and perish.

O then despise not,
and wonder not,
but hearken
unto the words of the Lord.

Ask the Father
in the name of Jesus
for what things soever
ye shall stand in need.

Doubt not, but be believing,
and begin as in times of old,
and come unto the Lord
with all your heart, and
work out your own salvation
with fear and trembling before him.

This promise in Christ

Behold, I say unto you that
whoso believeth in Christ,
doubting nothing,
whatsoever he shall
ask the Father
in the name of Christ
it shall be granted him;
and this promise is unto all,
even unto the ends of the earth.

For behold, thus said
Jesus Christ, the Son of God,
unto his disciples:
Go ye into all the world,
and preach the gospel
to every creature;
And he that believeth and
is baptized shall be saved,
but he that believeth not
shall be damned.

And whosoever shall
believe in my name,
doubting nothing,
unto him will I confirm
all my words, even
unto the ends of the earth.

Christ - A God of miracles

are not the things
that God hath wrought
marvelous in our eyes?

And who shall say
that Jesus Christ
did not do
many mighty miracles?

Redemption through Christ alone

By Adam came the fall of man.

And because of the fall of man
came Jesus Christ,
even the Father and the Son;
and because of Jesus Christ
came the redemption of man.

And because of
the redemption of man,
which came by Jesus Christ,
they are brought back into
the presence of the Lord;
yea, this is wherein
all men are redeemed,
because the death of Christ
bringeth to pass the resurrection,
which bringeth to pass
a redemption from an endless sleep,
from which sleep all men shall be
awakened by the power of God
when the trump shall sound;
and they shall come forth,
both small and great, and
all shall stand before his bar,
being redeemed and loosed
from this eternal band of death,
which death is a temporal death.

And then cometh the judgment
of the Holy One upon them;
and then cometh the time
that he that is filthy
shall be filthy still;
and he that is righteous
shall be righteous still;
he that is happy
shall be happy still;
and he that is unhappy
shall be unhappy still.

The gifts of Christ

And again I speak unto you
who deny the revelations of God,
and say that they are done away,
that there are no revelations,
nor prophecies, nor gifts,
nor healing, nor speaking with tongues,
and the interpretation of tongues;
Behold I say unto you,
he that denieth these things
knoweth not the gospel of Christ;
yea, he has not read the scriptures;
if so, he does not understand them.

For do we not read that God is the same
yesterday, today, and forever,
and in him there is no variableness
neither shadow of changing?

Can ye behold the Lamb of God?

And now, I speak also
concerning those who
do not believe in Christ.

Behold, will ye believe
in the day of your visitation—
when the Lord shall come,
yea, even that great day
when the earth shall be
rolled together as a scroll,
and the elements shall melt
with fervent heat, yea,
in that great day when
ye shall be brought to stand
before the Lamb of God—
then will ye say
that there is no God?

Then will ye longer
deny the Christ,
or can ye behold
the Lamb of God?

Do ye suppose that
ye shall dwell with him
under a consciousness
of your guilt?

Do ye suppose that
ye could be happy to
dwell with that holy Being,
when your souls are racked
with a consciousness of guilt
that ye have ever
abused his laws?

Behold, I say unto you that
ye would be more miserable
to dwell with a holy and just God,
under a consciousness of
your filthiness before him,
than ye would to dwell
with the damned souls in hell.

For behold, when ye shall
be brought to see
your nakedness before God,
and also the glory of God, and
the holiness of Jesus Christ,
it will kindle a flame
of unquenchable fire upon you.

O then ye unbelieving,
turn ye unto the Lord;
cry mightily unto the Father
in the name of Jesus,
that perhaps ye may be found
spotless, pure, fair, and white,
having been cleansed
by the blood of the Lamb,
at that great and last day.

Take the name of Christ

Behold, I speak unto you
as if ye were present,
and yet ye are not.

But behold, Jesus Christ
hath shown you unto me,
and I know your doing.

Why are ye ashamed
to take upon you
the name of Christ?

Know the true God

There are none
that do know
the true God
save it be
the disciples of Jesus.

The gospel of Christ

Repent, and be baptized
in the name of Jesus,
and lay hold upon
the gospel of Christ,
which shall be
set before you,
not only in this record
but also in the record
which shall come
unto the Gentiles
from the Jews.

And if it so be that
ye believe in Christ,
and are baptized,
first with water,
then with fire and
with the Holy Ghost,
following the example
of our Savior,
according to that which
he hath commanded us,
it shall be well with you
in the day of judgment.

Salvation through Christ

Ye must come to
the knowledge of your fathers,
and repent of all
your sins and iniquities,
and believe in Jesus Christ,
that he is the Son of God, and
that he was slain by the Jews,
and by the power of the Father
he hath risen again,
whereby he hath gained the
victory over the grave;
and also in him is
the sting of death
swallowed up.

And he bringeth to pass
the resurrection of the dead,
whereby man must be raised to
stand before his judgment-seat.

And he hath brought to pass
the redemption of the world.

All through Christ

The day soon cometh
that your mortal
must put on immortality,
and these bodies
which are now
moldering in corruption
must soon become
incorruptible bodies;
and then ye must
stand before
the judgment-seat of Christ,
to be judged
according to your works.

Christ's open arms

O ye fair ones,
how could ye
have rejected
that Jesus,
who stood
with open arms
to receive you!

Christ is our shepherd

Behold, the Spirit of the Lord
hath already ceased to
strive with their fathers;
and they are without
Christ and God
in the world;
and they are driven about
as chaff before the wind.

They were once
a delightsome people,
and they had Christ
for their shepherd.

Be persuaded

Now these things
are written and
for this intent
shall they go—
that they may
be persuaded that
Jesus is the Christ,
the Son of the living God;
that the Father
may bring about,
through his most Beloved,
his great and eternal purpose.

Standing before Christ

And for this cause
I write unto you,
that ye may know
that ye must all
stand before the
judgment-seat of Christ,
yea, every soul
who belongs to
the whole human family
of Adam; and
ye must stand
to be judged
of your works,
whether they
be good or evil;

And also that ye may believe
the gospel of Jesus Christ,
which ye shall have among you;
and also that the Jews,
the covenant people of the Lord,
shall have other witness
besides him whom
they saw and heard,
that Jesus, whom they slew,
was the very Christ
and the very God.

And I would
that I could persuade
all ye ends of the earth
to repent and prepare
to stand before
the judgment-seat of Christ.

Righteousness in Christ

And it came to pass
that in this year
there arose a people
who were true believers
in Christ.

And it came to pass that
they who rejected the gospel
did not dwindle in unbelief,
but they did wilfully rebel
against the gospel of Christ.

And there were none
that were righteous
save it were
the disciples of Jesus.

Many churches

And it came to pass that
there were many churches
which professed to know the Christ,
and yet they did deny
the more parts of his gospel
and they did persecute
the true church of Christ,
because of their humility
and their belief in Christ;
and they did despise them
because of the many miracles
which were wrought among them.
