Our Joy Is In Jesus Christ

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.
(Alma 16:20)

Preaching Jesus Christ

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

Faith In Christ Heals Us

And it came to pass that
Alma said unto him,
taking him by the hand:
Believest thou in
the power of Christ unto salvation?

And he answered and said:
Yea, I believe all the words
that thou hast taught.

And Alma said: If thou believest
in the redemption of Christ
thou canst be healed.

And he said: Yea,
I believe according to thy words.

And then Alma cried unto the Lord,
saying: O Lord our God,
have mercy on this man,
and heal him according to
his faith which is in Christ.

And when Alma had said these words,
Zeezrom leaped upon his feet,
and began to walk; and this was done
to the great astonishment of all the people;
and the knowledge of this
went forth throughout all the land.
(Alma 15:6-11)

Through Faith In Christ

The Lord had granted
unto them power,
according to their faith
which was in Christ.
(Alma 14:28)

Look Unto Jesus

Now these ordinances
were given after this manner,
that thereby the people
might look forward
on the Son of God,
it being a type of his order,
or it being his order,
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 13:16)

That We Might Come Unto 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, who was prepared—

This high priesthood being after the order of his Son,
being without beginning of days or end of years,
being prepared from eternity to all eternity—

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.
(Alma 13:5, 7 & 9)

Ordained Of 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.

Rest In Christ

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 12:34)

Redemption Through Jesus 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.
(Alma 12:33)

Jesus Christ Is Our Judge

All, both old and young,
both bond and free,
both male and female,
both the wicked and the righteous
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 11:44)

Our Hope Is In Jesus

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.
(Alma 11:42)

Jesus Christ, Our 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 11:38-40)

Saved From, Not In, Our Sins

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.
(Alma 11:32-34)

Jesus Is Our Deliverer

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 9:28)

The Coming of Our Redeemer

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.

Born Again In 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.
(Alma 7:14)

Jesus, Our Deliverer

Behold, the Spirit hath said this much unto me, saying:
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,
at Jerusalem which is the land of our forefathers,
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 Greatest News Of All

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.
(Alma 7:7)

Called Of Jesus 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.
(Alma 6:8)

Jesus, Our Good Shepherd

And now I say unto you that
the good shepherd doth call after you;
and if you will hearken unto his voice
he will bring you into his fold,
and ye are his sheep.
(Alma 5:60)

Testify Of Jesus Christ

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.
(Alma 5:48)

Authorized By Jesus

I am called to speak after this manner,
according to the holy order of God,
which is in Christ Jesus.
(Alma 5:44)
