Jesus saves us

O blessed Jesus,
who has saved me
from an awful hell!

O blessed God,
have mercy
on this people!

Christ redeems all mankind

As sure as thou livest,
I have seen my Redeemer;
and he shall come forth,
and be born of a woman,
and he shall
redeem all mankind
who believe on his name.

Redemption is in Christ

He expounded unto them
the plan of redemption,
which was prepared
from the foundation of the world;
and he also made known unto them
concerning the coming of Christ.

Christ is the Son of God

Now those priests
who did go forth among the people
did preach holding forth
the coming of the Son of God,
his sufferings and death, and also
the resurrection of the dead.

And many of the people did inquire
concerning the place where
the Son of God should come;
and they were taught that
he would appear unto them
after his resurrection;
and this the people did hear
with great joy and gladness.

Faith in Jesus Christ heals us

Believest thou
in the power of Christ
unto salvation?

Yea, I believe all the words
that thou hast taught.

If thou believest in
the redemption of Christ
thou canst be healed.

Yea, I believe
according to thy words.

O Lord our God,
have mercy on this man,
and heal him
according to his faith
which is in Christ.

According to faith in Christ

The Lord had granted
unto them power,
according to their faith
which was in Christ.

Faith in Jesus Christ

O Lord,
give us strength
according to our faith
which is in Christ.

Look forward to Christ

Now these ordinances
were given after this manner,
that thereby the people might
look forward on the Son of God;
and this that they might
look forward to him
for a remission of their sins,
that they might enter
into the rest of the Lord.

Sanctified through Christ

Thus this holy calling being prepared
from the foundation of the world
for such as would not harden their hearts,
being in and through the atonement
of the Only Begotten Son.

This high priesthood being
after the order of his Son,
which order was
from the foundation of the world;
Now they were ordained after this manner,
after the order of the Son,
the Only Begotten of the Father,
who is without beginning of days or end of years,
who is full of grace, equity, and truth.

Therefore they were called after this holy order,
and were sanctified, and
their garments were washed white
through the blood of the Lamb.

In the name of Jesus Christ

God did call on men,
in the name of his Son,
(this being the plan
of redemption which was laid)
If ye will repent, and
harden not your hearts,
then will I have mercy upon you,
through mine Only Begotten Son;
Therefore, whosoever repenteth,
and hardeneth not his heart,
he shall have claim on mercy
through mine Only Begotten Son,
unto a remission of his sins;
and these shall enter into my rest.

The death of Christ

Now, there is a death
which is called a temporal death;
and the death of Christ
shall loose the bands
of this temporal death,
that all shall be raised
from this temporal death.

The spirit and the body
shall be reunited again
in its perfect form;
both limb and joint shall be
restored to its proper frame,
even as we now are at this time;
and we shall be brought to stand before God,
knowing even as we know now,
and have a bright recollection of all our guilt.

Now, this restoration shall come to all,
both old and young, both bond and free,
both male and female,
both the wicked and the righteous;
and even there shall not so much
as a hair of their heads be lost;
but every thing shall be restored
to its perfect frame,
as it is now, or in the body,
and shall be brought and be arraigned
before the bar of Christ the Son,
and God the Father,
and the Holy Spirit,
which is one Eternal God,
to be judged according to their works,
whether they be good
or whether they be evil.

Jesus is the Son of God

Who is he that shall come?
Is it the Son of God?


Shall he save his people in their sins?

I say unto you he shall not,
for it is impossible
for him to deny his word.

And I say unto you again that
he cannot save them in their sins;
for I cannot deny his word,
and he hath said that
no unclean thing can inherit
the kingdom of heaven;
therefore, how can ye be saved,
except ye inherit the kingdom of heaven?

Therefore, ye cannot be saved in your sins.

Is the Son of God the very Eternal Father?

Yea, he is the very Eternal Father
of heaven and of earth,
and all things which in them are;
he is the beginning and the end,
the first and the last;
And he shall come into the world
to redeem his people;
and he shall take upon him
the transgressions of those
who believe on his name;
and these are they
that shall have eternal life,
and salvation cometh to none else.

Prepare ye the way of the Lord

Not many days hence
the Son of God shall come in his glory;
and his glory shall be the glory of
the Only Begotten of the Father,
full of grace, equity, and truth,
full of patience, mercy, and long-suffering,
quick to hear the cries of his people
and to answer their prayers.

And behold,
he cometh to redeem those
who will be baptized unto repentance,
through faith on his name.

prepare ye the way of the Lord,
for the time is at hand
that all men shall reap a reward of their works,
according to that which they have been—
if they have been righteous
they shall reap the salvation of their souls,
according to the power and deliverance
of Jesus Christ.

Faith in Jesus Christ

Now I say unto you
that ye must repent,
and be born again;
for the Spirit saith
if ye are not born again
ye cannot inherit
the kingdom of heaven;
therefore come and
be baptized unto repentance,
that ye may be
washed from your sins,
that ye may have
faith on the Lamb of God,
who taketh away
the sins of the world,
who is mighty to save
and to cleanse
from all unrighteousness.

The mercy of Christ

the kingdom of heaven is at hand,
and the Son of God cometh
upon the face of the earth.

And behold,
he shall be born of Mary,
she being a virgin,
a precious and chosen vessel,
who shall be overshadowed and
conceive by the power of the Holy Ghost,
and bring forth a son,
yea, even the Son of God.

And he shall go forth,
suffering pains and afflictions
and temptations of every kind;
and this that the word might be fulfilled
which saith he will take upon him the pains
and the sicknessesof his people.

And he will take upon him death,
that he may loose the bands of death
which bind his people;
and he will take upon him their infirmities,
that his bowels may be filled with mercy,
according to the flesh,
that he may know according to the flesh
how to succor his people
according to their infirmities.

Now the Spirit knoweth all things;
nevertheless the Son of God
suffereth according to the flesh
that he might take upon him
the sins of his people,
that he might blot out their transgressions
according to the powerof his deliverance;
and now behold,
this is the testimony which is in me.

Our Redeemer lives

Behold, there is one thing
which is of more importance
than they all—for behold,
the time is not far distant
that the Redeemer liveth
and cometh among his people.

The testimony of Jesus Christ

Declare the word of God
according to
the testimony of Jesus Christ,
the Son of God, who should come
to redeem his people from their sins.

Christ is the Holy One

And now I say unto you,
can ye withstand these sayings;
yea, can ye lay aside these things,
and trample the Holy One under your feet?

The Only Begotten of the Father

I am called to speak after this manner,
according to the holy order of God,
which is in Christ Jesus.

And I say unto you, that
I know that Jesus Christ shall come, yea,
the Son, the Only Begotten of the Father,
full of grace, and mercy, and truth.

And behold, it is he that cometh
to take away the sins of the world,
yea, the sins of every man
who steadfastly believeth on his name.

Jesus is the Good Shepherd

Behold, I say unto you,
that the good shepherd doth call you;
yea, and in his own name he doth call you,
which is the name of Christ;
and if ye will not hearken
unto the voice of the good shepherd,
to the name by which ye are called,
behold, ye are not the sheep
of the good shepherd.

And now if ye are not
the sheep of the good shepherd,
of what fold are ye?

The blood of Jesus Christ

Have ye walked,
keeping yourselves
blameless before God?

Could ye say,
if ye were called
to die at this time,
within yourselves,
that ye have been
sufficiently humble?

That your garments
have been cleansed
and made white
through the blood of Christ,
who will come
to redeem his people
from their sins?

Jesus Christ, Our Deliverer

The people were abasing themselves,
succoring those who
stood in need of their succor,
such as imparting their substance
to the poor and the needy,
feeding the hungry,
and suffering all manner of afflictions,
for Christ’s sake, who should come
according to the spirit of prophecy;
Looking forward to that day,
thus retaining a remission of their sins;
being filled with great joy
because of the resurrection of the dead,
according to the will and power
and deliverance of Jesus Christ
from the bands of death.

Born again through Christ

I am born of God.

My soul hath been redeemed
from the gall of bitterness
and bonds of iniquity.

I was in the darkest abyss;
but now I behold
the marvelous light of God.

My soul was racked
with eternal torment;
but I am snatched,
and my soul is pained no more.

I rejected my Redeemer,
and denied that which
had been spoken of by our fathers;
but now that they may foresee
that he will come,
and that he remembereth
every creature of his creating,
he will make himself manifest unto all.

Yea, every knee shall bow,
and every tongue confess before him.

Yea, even at the last day,
when all men shall
stand to be judged of him.

Eternal life through Christ

May the Spirit of the Lord
be poured out upon you;
and may he grant unto you
eternal life, through
the redemption of Christ,
whom he has prepared
from the foundation of the world.

The power of Jesus Christ

The redemption
was to be brought to pass
through the power,
and sufferings,
and death of Christ,
and his resurrection
and ascension into heaven.
