Knowing Christ

Believest thou
the scriptures?

They truly
testify of Christ.

Behold, I say unto you
that none of the prophets
have written, nor prophesied,
save they have spoken
concerning this Christ.

And this is not all—
it has been made
manifest unto me,
for I have heard and seen;
and it also has been
made manifest unto me
by the power of the Holy Ghost;
wherefore, I know
if there should be
no atonement made
all mankind must be lost.

Faith in Christ

I, Jacob,
had faith in Christ
who should come.

The good word of Christ

will ye reject these words?

Will ye reject the words
of the prophets;
and will ye reject
all the words
which have been spoken
concerning Christ,
after so many have spoken
concerning him;
and deny the good word of Christ,
and the power of God,
and the gift of the Holy Ghost,
and quench the Holy Spirit,
and make a mock of
the great plan of redemption,
which hath been laid for you?

Know ye not that
if ye will do these things,
that the power of the redemption
and the resurrection,
which is in Christ,
will bring you to stand
with shame and awful guilt
before the bar of God?

The atonement of Christ

be reconciled unto him
through the atonement of Christ,
his Only Begotten Son,
and ye may obtain a resurrection,
according to the power of
the resurrection which is in Christ,
and be presented as
the first-fruits of Christ unto God,
having faith, and obtained
a good hope of glory in him.

And now, beloved, marvel not
that I tell you these things;
for why not speak of
the atonement of Christ,
and attain to
a perfect knowledge of him?

They believed in Christ

For this intent have we
written these things,
that they may know
that we knew of Christ,
and we had
a hope of his glory
many hundred years
before his coming;
and not only we ourselves
had a hope of his glory,
but also all the holy prophets
which were before us.

they believed in Christ
and worshiped the Father
in his name, and also
we worship the Father
in his name.

Obtain hope in Christ

Ye have
a hope
in Christ.

We knew of Christ

And we also had many revelations,
and the spirit of much prophecy;
wherefore, we knew of Christ
and his kingdom, which should come.

Wherefore, we labored diligently
among our people,
that we might persuade them
to come unto Christ, and
partake of the goodness of God,
that they might enter into his rest.

Wherefore, we would to God
that all men would believe in Christ,
and view his death,
and suffer his cross
and bear the shame of the world.

These are the words of Christ

Hearken unto these words
and believe in Christ;
and if ye believe not
in these words
believe in Christ.

And if ye shall believe in Christ
ye will believe in these words,
for they are the words of Christ,
and he hath given them unto me;
and they teach all men
that they should do good.

And if they are not the words of Christ,
judge ye—
for Christ will show unto you,
with power and great glory,
that they are his words,
at the last day;
and you and I shall stand
face to face before his bar;
and ye shall know that
I have been commanded of him
to write these things,
notwithstanding my weakness.

And I pray the Father
in the name of Christ
that many of us, if not all,
may be saved in his kingdom
at that great and last day.

Hope in Christ

I have charity for my people,
and great faith in Christ
that I shall meet many souls
spotless at his judgment-seat.

I have charity for the Jew.

I also have charity for the Gentiles.

But behold,
for none of these
can I hope except they shall
be reconciled unto Christ.

Jesus redeems my soul

I glory in plainness;
I glory in truth;
I glory in my Jesus,
for he hath
redeemed my soul
from hell.

Pray in Christ's name

unto the Father
in the name of

Christ's words

Feast upon
the words of Christ;
for behold,
the words of Christ
will tell you all things
what ye should do.

The doctrine of Christ

Ye have not come thus far
save it were by the word of Christ
with unshaken faith in him,
relying wholly upon the merits
of him who is mighty to save.

Wherefore, ye must press forward
with a steadfastness in Christ,
having a perfect brightness of hope,
and a love of God and of all men.

Wherefore, if ye shall press forward,
feasting upon the word of Christ,
and endure to the end,
behold, thus saith the Father:
Ye shall have eternal life.

And now, behold this is the way;
and there is none other way
nor name given under heaven
whereby man can be saved
in the kingdom of God.

And now, behold,
this is the doctrine of Christ,
and the only and true doctrine
of the Father,
and of the Son,
and of the Holy Ghost,
which is one God, without end.

Follow Christ

And now,
I know by this that
unless a man shall
endure to the end,
in following the example
of the Son of the living God,
he cannot be saved.

Wherefore, do the things
which I have told you
I have seen
that your Lord
and your Redeemer
should do.

Take the name of Jesus Christ

I know that
if ye shall follow the Son,
with full purpose of heart,
acting no hypocrisy and
no deception before God,
but with real intent,
repenting of your sins,
witnessing unto the Father
that ye are willing
to take upon you
the name of Christ,
by baptism—yea,
by following your Lord
and your Savior
down into the water,
according to his word,
then shall ye receive
the Holy Ghost.

Be baptized in the name of Jesus

And he said unto
the children of men:
Follow thou me.

my beloved brethren,
can we follow Jesus
save we shall be willing to
keep the commandments
of the Father?

And the Father said:
Repent ye, repent ye,
and be baptized
in the name of
my Beloved Son.

And also, the voice of the Son
came unto me, saying:
He that is baptized
in my name,
to him will the Father
give the Holy Ghost,
like unto me;
wherefore, follow me,
and do the things
which ye have seen me do.

All righteousness in Christ

And now,
if the Lamb of God,
he being holy,
should have need
to be baptized by water,
to fulfil all righteousness,
O then, how much more
need have we,
being unholy,
to be baptized,
yea, even by water!

And now,
I would ask of you,
my beloved brethren,
wherein the Lamb of God
did fulfil all righteousness
in being baptized by water?

Know ye not
that he was holy?

But notwithstanding
he being holy,
he showeth unto
the children of men
that according to the flesh
he humbleth himself
before the Father,
and witnesseth
unto the Father
that he would
be obedient unto him
in keeping
his commandments.

Knowledge of Jesus Christ

And the gospel of Jesus Christ
shall be declared among them;
wherefore, they shall be restored
unto the knowledge of their fathers,
and also to the knowledge of Jesus Christ,
which was had among their fathers.

And then shall they rejoice;
for they shall know that
it is a blessing unto them
from the hand of God;
and their scales of darkness
shall begin to fall from their eyes;
and many generations
shall not pass away among them,
save they shall be a pure
and a delightsome people.

And as many as shall
believe in Christ
shall also become
a delightsome people.

Humbly follow Jesus Christ

They have all
gone astray
save it be a few,
who are
the humble
followers of Christ.

Jesus is the very Christ

And as I spake concerning
the convincing of the Jews,
that Jesus is the very Christ,
it must needs be that
the Gentiles be convinced also
that Jesus is the Christ,
the Eternal God;
and that he manifesteth himself
unto all those who believe in him,
by the power of the Holy Ghost;
yea, unto every nation,
kindred, tongue, and people,
working mighty miracles,
signs, and wonders,
among the children of men
according to their faith.

Look forward to Christ

Behold, the righteous
that hearken unto
the words of the prophets,
and destroy them not,
but look forward
unto Christ with steadfastness
for the signs which are given,
notwithstanding all persecution—
behold, they are they
which shall not perish.

But the Son of righteousness
shall appear unto them;
and he shall heal them,
and they shall
have peace with him.

Christ shall come

And after
the Messiah shall come
there shall be signs
given unto my people
of his birth, and
also of his death
and resurrection.

Christ's word

And after Christ shall have
risen from the dead
he shall show himself unto you,
and the words
which he shall speak unto you
shall be the law which ye shall do.

Believe in Jesus Christ

And now behold,
I have spoken
plainly unto you,
that ye cannot

And the words
which I have spoken
shall stand
as a testimony
against you;
for they are sufficient
to teach any man
the right way;
for the right way
is to believe in Christ
and deny him not;
for by denying him
ye also deny
the prophets.

And now behold,
I say unto you
that the right way
is to believe in Christ,
and deny him not;
and Christ is
the Holy One of Israel;
ye must bow down
before him, and
worship him
with all your might,
mind, and strength,
and your whole soul;
and if ye do this
ye shall in nowise
be cast out.
