Immortality through Christ

This mortal does not
put on immortality,
this corruption does not
put on incorruption
until after the coming of Christ.

Behold, he bringeth to pass
the resurrection of the dead.

The good news of Jesus Christ

I would say somewhat unto you
concerning the coming of Christ.

Behold, I say unto you,
that it is he that surely shall come
to take away the sins of the world;
yea, he cometh to declare
glad tidings of salvation
unto his people.

Only in and through Jesus Christ

I was three days and three nights
in the most bitter pain and anguish of soul;
and never, until I did cry out
unto the Lord Jesus Christ for mercy,
did I receive a remission of my sins.

But behold, I did cry unto him
and I did find peace to my soul.

And now, I have told you this
that ye may learn wisdom,
that ye may learn of me that
there is no other way or means
whereby man can be saved,
only in and through Christ.

Behold, he is
the life and the light of the world.

Behold, he is
the word of truth and righteousness.

Follow the words of Christ

Surely shall the words of Christ,
if we follow their course,
carry us beyond
this vale of sorrow
into a far better land of promise.

The word of God

It is easy to give heed
to the word of Christ,
which will point you to
a straight course to eternal bliss

Our faith in Jesus Christ

Preach unto them repentance,
and faith on the Lord Jesus Christ;
teach them to humble themselves
and to be meek and lowly in heart;
teach them to withstand
every temptation of the devil,
with their faith on the Lord Jesus Christ.

Knowing Christ our Redeemer

Yea, these records and their words
brought them unto repentance;
that is, they brought them to
the knowledge of the Lord their God,
and to rejoice in Jesus Christ their Redeemer.

And who knoweth but what they will be
the means of bringing
many thousands of them
to the knowledge of their Redeemer?

Born again through Christ

I was racked with eternal torment,
for my soul was harrowed up
to the greatest degree
and racked with all my sins.

Yea, I did remember all my sins and iniquities,
for which I was tormented with the pains of hell;
yea, I saw that I had rebelled against my God,
and that I had not kept his holy commandments.

Yea, and in fine so great had been my iniquities,
that the very thought of
coming into the presence of my God
did rack my soul with inexpressible horror.

Oh, thought I, that I could be banished and
become extinct both soul and body,
that I might not be brought
to stand in the presence of my God,
to be judged of my deeds.

And now, for three days and for three nights
was I racked, even with the pains of a damned soul.

And it came to pass that
as I was thus racked with torment,
while I was harrowed up
by the memory of my many sins,
behold, I remembered also
to have heard my father prophesy unto the people
concerning the coming of one Jesus Christ, a Son of God,
to atone for the sins of the world.

Now, as my mind caught hold upon this thought,
I cried within my heart: O Jesus, thou Son of God,
have mercy on me, who am in the gall of bitterness,
and am encircled about by the everlasting chains of death.

And now, behold, when I thought this,
I could remember my pains no more;
yea, I was harrowed up
by the memory of my sins no more.

And oh, what joy, and what marvelous light I did behold;
yea, my soul was filled with joy as exceeding as was my pain!

Yea, I say unto you that there could be nothing
so exquisite and so bitter as were my pains.

Yea, and again I say unto you that on the other hand,
there can be nothing so exquisite and sweet as was my joy.

And I stood upon my feet,
and did manifest unto the people
that I had been born of God.

Receiving Christ

And now I desire that
ye should remember these things,
and that ye should
work out your salvation
with fear before God,
and that ye should
no more deny the coming of Christ
but that ye receive it,
and take upon you the name of Christ.

The infinite atonement of Jesus Christ

And we have beheld that
the great question which is in your minds
is whether the word be in the Son of God,
or whether there shall be no Christ.

And ye also beheld
that my brother has proved unto you,
in many instances,
that the word is in Christ unto salvation.

And now, behold,
I will testify unto you of myself
that these things are true.

Behold, I say unto you, that
I do know that Christ shall come
among the children of men,
to take upon him
the transgressions of his people,
and that he shall atone
for the sins of the world;
for the Lord God hath spoken it.

For it is expedient that
an atonement should be made;
for according to the great plan
of the Eternal God
there must be an atonement made,
or else all mankind must unavoidably perish;
yea, all are hardened;
yea, all are fallen and are lost,
and must perish
except it be through the atonement
which it is expedient should be made.

Therefore there can be nothing
which is short of an infinite atonement
which will suffice for the sins of the world.

Therefore, it is expedient that
there should be a great and last sacrifice,
and that great and last sacrifice
will be the Son of God,
yea, infinite and eternal.

And thus he shall bring salvation
to all those who shall believe on his name;
this being the intent of this last sacrifice,
to bring about the bowels of mercy,
which overpowereth justice,
and bringeth about means unto men
that they may have faith unto repentance.

Jesus Christ is the Son of God

I think that it is impossible
that ye should be ignorant of
the things which have been spoken
concerning the coming of Christ,
who is taught by us to be the Son of God;
yea, I know that these things
were taught unto you bountifully.

Christ's words bring joy

And now I desire that ye shall
plant this word in your hearts,
and as it beginneth to swell
even so nourish it by your faith.

And behold, it will become a tree,
springing up in you unto everlasting life.

And then may God grant unto you
that your burdens may be light,
through the joy of his Son.

Believe in the Son of God

Begin to believe in the Son of God,
that he will come to redeem his people,
and that he shall suffer and die
to atone for their sins;
and that he shall rise again from the dead,
which shall bring to pass the resurrection,
that all men shall stand before him,
to be judged at the last and judgment day,
according to their works.

The mercies of Christ

Thou art angry, O Lord,
with this people,
because they will not
understand thy mercies
which thou hast
bestowed upon them
because of thy Son.

Believe in Christ

Now behold I would ask
if ye have read the scriptures?

If ye have,
how can ye disbelieve
on the Son of God?

Mercy through Christ

It is because of thy Son
that thou hast been
thus merciful unto me,
therefore I will cry unto thee
in all mine afflictions,
for in thee is my joy;
for thou hast
turned thy judgments
away from me,
because of thy Son.

In the joy of Christ

The Lord provided for them.

And he also gave them strength,
that they should suffer
no manner of afflictions,
save it were swallowed up
in the joy of Christ.

Bring them to Christ

O Lord,
wilt thou grant unto us
that we may have success
in bringing them again
unto thee in Christ.

Comfort my soul in Christ

O Lord, my heart is exceedingly sorrowful;
wilt thou comfort my soul in Christ.

O Lord, wilt thou comfort my soul,
and give unto me success,
and also my fellow laborers who are with me.

Yea, wilt thou comfort their souls in Christ.

I testify of Jesus Christ

Behold, I say unto you,
I know there is a God,
and also that Christ shall come.

And now what evidence have ye
that there is no God,
or that Christ cometh not?

I say unto you that ye have none,
save it be your word only.

But, behold, I have all things
as a testimony that
these things are true;
and ye also have all things
as a testimony unto you
that they are true.

Our joy is in Christ

And thus we see
the great reason of sorrow,
and also of rejoicing—
sorrow because of death and
destruction among men,
and joy because of
the light of Christ unto life.

Victory through Christ

And they were also distinguished
for their zeal towards God,
and also towards men;
for they were perfectly honest
and upright in all things;
and they were firm
in the faith of Christ,
even unto the end.

And they never did look upon death
with any degree of terror,
for their hope and views of Christ
and the resurrection;
therefore, death was swallowed up to them
by the victory of Christ over it.

And thus they were
a zealous and beloved people,
a highly favored people of the Lord.

The blood of Christ

Be washed bright
through the blood of
the Son of our great God,
which shall be shed
for the atonement of our sins.

The sufferings and death of Christ

The plan of redemption was prepared
from the foundation of the world,
through Christ, for all whosoever
would believe on his name.

And since man had fallen
he could not merit anything of himself;
but the sufferings and death of Christ
atone for their sins,
through faith and repentance, and so forth;
and that he breaketh the bands of death,
that the grave shall have no victory,
and that the sting of death
should be swallowed up
in the hopes of glory.

Christ redeems us

Now Aaron said unto him:
Believest thou that
the Son of God shall come
to redeem mankind from their sins?

And Aaron began to
open the scriptures unto them
concerning the coming of Christ,
and also concerning
the resurrection of the dead,
and that there could be
no redemption for mankind
save it were through
the death and sufferings of Christ,
and the atonement of his blood.
