Look Unto Jesus Christ

Ye should remember that
the Lord God ordained priests,
after his holy order,
which was after the order of his Son,
to teach these things unto the people.

And those priests were ordained
after the order of his Son,
in a manner that thereby
the people might know in what manner to
look forward to his Son for redemption.

Thus this holy calling
being in and through the atonement of
the Only Begotten Son, who was prepared—
This high priesthood
being after the order of his Son,
thus they become high priests forever,
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.

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.
(Alma 13:1-2,5,7,9,11 & 16)

God's Mercy Is In Christ

God did call on men, in the name of his Son,
(this being the plan of redemption which was laid) saying:
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.
(Alma 12: 33-34)

Restored Through 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.

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.
(Alma 11:42 & 44)

Christ Is The Father Of Our Salvation

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


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.
(Alma 11:32-33 & 38-40)

Christ's Power And Deliverance

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.

Therefore, 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.
(Alma 9:26-28)

Have 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.

Jesus Christ Is The Son Of God

Cry unto this people, saying—
Repent ye, and prepare the way of the Lord,
and walk in his paths, which are straight;
for behold, 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 sicknesses of 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 power of his deliverance;
and now behold, this is the testimony which is in me.

The Good News Of Christ

Behold, I say unto you
there be many things to come;
and 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 Christ

And Alma went and began to
declare the word of God unto the church,
according to the revelation of the truth
of the word which had been spoken by his fathers,
and according to the spirit of prophecy which was in him,
according to the testimony of Jesus Christ, the Son of God,
who should come to redeem his people from their sins,
and the holy order by which he was called.

Christ Is Our King

Yea, thus saith the Spirit:
Repent, all ye ends of the earth,
for the kingdom of heaven is soon at hand;
yea, the Son of God cometh in his glory,
in his might, majesty, power, and dominion.

Yea, I say unto you, that the Spirit saith:
Behold the glory of the King of all the earth;
and also the King of heaven
shall very soon shine forth
among all the children of men.

Forgiven Through Jesus Christ

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.

Authorized Of Christ

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

Christ Is Our Good Shepherd

A shepherd hath called after you
and is still calling after you!

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.

He Is Jesus Christ, The Son Of God

Behold, I am Jesus Christ the Son of God.

I created the heavens and the earth,
and all things that in them are.

I was with the Father from the beginning.

I am in the Father, and the Father in me;
and in me hath the Father glorified his name.

I came unto my own,
and my own received me not.

And the scriptures concerning my coming are fulfilled.

And as many as have received me,
to them have I given to become the sons of God;
and even so will I to as many as shall believe on my name,
for behold, by me redemption cometh,
and in me is the law of Moses fulfilled.

I am the light and the life of the world.

I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end.

And ye shall offer for a sacrifice unto me
a broken heart and a contrite spirit.

And whoso cometh unto me
with a broken heart and a contrite spirit,
him will I baptize with fire and with the Holy Ghost.

Behold, I have come unto the world
to bring redemption unto the world,
to save the world from sin.

Therefore, whoso repenteth and
cometh unto me as a little child,
him will I receive,
for of such is the kingdom of God.

Behold, for such I have laid down my life,
and have taken it up again;
therefore repent, and come unto me
ye ends of the earth, and be saved.

Delight In Christ's Resurrection

When the day cometh that
the Only Begotten of the Father,
shall manifest himself unto them in the flesh,
behold, they will reject him.

Behold, they will crucify him;
and after he is laid in a sepulchre
for the space of three days
he shall rise from the dead,
with healing in his wings;
and all those who shall believe on his name
shall be saved in the kingdom of God.

Wherefore, my soul delighteth
to prophesy concerning him,
for I have seen his day,
and my heart doth magnify his holy name.

Through The Blood Of Christ

Could ye say, if ye were
called to die at this time,
within yourselves,
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 Was Crucified For Us

He shall be called the Son of God,
and having subjected the flesh
to the will of the Father,
and thus the flesh becoming
subject to the Spirit,
or the Son to the Father,
suffereth temptation,
and yieldeth not to the temptation,
but suffereth himself to be mocked,
and scourged, and cast out,
and disowned by his people.

And after all this,
after working many mighty miracles
among the children of men,
he shall be led, yea, even as Isaiah said,
as a sheep before the shearer is dumb,
so he opened not his mouth.

Yea, even so he shall be led, crucified, and slain,
the flesh becoming subject even unto death,
the will of the Son being swallowed up
in the will of the Father.

For Christ's Sake

Others 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.

Disciples In Christ

It came to pass that
whosoever did not belong
to the church of God
began to persecute those
that did belong to the church of God,
and had taken upon them
the name of Christ.

The Church Of Jesus Christ

And they were called
the church of God,
or the church of Christ.

Baptized In The Name Of Christ

The Spirit of the Lord was upon him,
and he said: I baptize thee,
having authority from the Almighty God,
as a testimony that ye have
entered into a covenant to serve him
until you are dead as to the mortal body;
and 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.
