They Knew Christ Our Redeemer

All of our fathers, even down to this time;
yea, they have testified of the coming of Christ,
and have looked forward,
and have rejoiced in his day which is to come.

And behold, he is God, and he is with them,
and he did manifest himself unto them,
that they were redeemed by him;
and they gave unto him glory,
because of that which is to come.
(Helaman 8:22-23)

All The Prophets Testify Of Christ

And now I would that ye should know,
that even since the days of Abraham
there have been many prophets
that have testified these things;
yea, behold, the prophet Zenos did testify boldly;
for the which he was slain.

And behold, also Zenock, and also Ezias,
and also Isaiah, and Jeremiah,
(Jeremiah being that same prophet who
testified of the destruction of Jerusalem)
and now we know that Jerusalem was destroyed
according to the words of Jeremiah.

O then why not the Son of God come,
according to his prophecy?
(Helaman 8:19-20)

Look Unto Christ, And Live

Moses had such great power given unto him,
yea, the words which he hath spoken
concerning the coming of the Messiah.

Yea, did he not bear record
that the Son of God should come?

And as he lifted up the brazen serpent
in the wilderness, even so
shall he be lifted up who should come.

And as many as should
look upon that serpent should live,
even so as many as should
look upon the Son of God with faith,
having a contrite spirit, might live,
even unto that life which is eternal.
(Helaman 8:13-15)

Becoming A Follower Of Christ

Many did preach with exceedingly
great power and authority,
unto the bringing down many of them
into the depths of humility,
to be the humble followers
of God and the Lamb.
(Helaman 6:5)

The Light Which Is In Christ

You must repent, and cry unto the voice,
even until ye shall have faith in Christ,
who was taught unto you;
and when ye shall do this,
the cloud of darkness shall be
removed from overshadowing you.
(Helaman 5:41)

Our Christmas Gift

Behold, I am Jesus Christ,
whom the prophets testified shall come into the world.

And behold, I am the light and the life of the world;
and I have drunk out of that bitter cup
which the Father hath given me,
and have glorified the Father
in taking upon me the sins of the world,
in the which I have suffered the will of the Father
in all things from the beginning.
(3 Nephi 11:10-11)

Silent Night, Holy Night

Lift up your head and be of good cheer;
for behold, the time is at hand,
and on this night shall the sign be given,
and on the morrow come I into the world,
to show unto the world that
I will fulfil all that which
I have caused to be spoken
by the mouth of my holy prophets.

Behold, I come unto my own,
to fulfill all things which I have
made known unto the children of men
from the foundation of the world,
and to do the will, both of
the Father and of the Son—
of the Father because of me,
and of the Son because of my flesh.

And behold, the time is at hand,
and this night shall the sign be given.
(3 Nephi 1:13-14)

Jesus Is Our Sure Foundation

And now remember, remember that
it is upon the rock of our Redeemer,
who is Christ, the Son of God,
that ye must build your foundation;
that when the devil shall
send forth his mighty winds,
yea, his shafts in the whirlwind,
yea, when all his hail and
his mighty storm shall beat upon you,
it shall have no power over you
to drag you down to
the gulf of misery and endless wo,
because of the rock upon which ye are built,
which is a sure foundation,
a foundation whereon
if men build they cannot fall.
(Helaman 5:12)

Salvation Is In Jesus Our Redeemer

Remember also the words which Amulek spake
that the Lord surely should come to redeem his people,
but that he should not come to redeem them in their sins,
but to redeem them from their sins.

And he hath power given unto him from the Father
to redeem them from their sins because of repentance;
therefore he hath sent his angels to declare
the tidings of the conditions of repentance,
which bringeth unto the power of the Redeemer,
unto the salvation of their souls.
(Helaman 5:10-11)

Only In And Through Christ

Remember that there is no other way
nor means whereby man can be saved,
only through the atoning blood
of Jesus Christ, who shall come;
yea, remember that
he cometh to redeem the world.
(Helaman 5:9)

Sanctified Through Jesus Christ

They did fast and pray oft,
and did wax stronger and
stronger in their humility,
and firmer and firmer
in the faith of Christ,
unto the filling their souls
with joy and consolation,
yea, even to the purifying
and the sanctification of their hearts,
which sanctification cometh
because of their yielding
their hearts unto God.
(Helaman 3:35)

Learn Of Christ, And Follow Him

Yea, we see that whosoever will
may lay hold upon the word of God,
which is quick and powerful,
which shall divide asunder
all the cunning and the snares
and the wiles of the devil,
and lead the man of Christ
in a strait and narrow course
across that everlasting gulf of misery
which is prepared to engulf the wicked—

And land their souls,
yea, their immortal souls,
at the right hand of God
in the kingdom of heaven,
to sit down with Abraham,
and Isaac, and with Jacob,
and with all our holy fathers,
to go no more out.
(Helaman 3:29-30)

Christ Is For All Mankind

Yea, thus we see that
the gate of heaven is open unto all,
even to those who will believe
on the name of Jesus Christ,
who is the Son of God.
(Helaman 3:28)

Valiant In Christ

[Moroni] was a man who was
firm in the faith of Christ,
and he had sworn with an oath
to defend his people, his rights,
and his country, and his religion,
even to the loss of his blood.
(Alma 48:13)

The Christian Cause

[Moroni] was preparing to support
their liberty, their lands, their wives,
and their children, and their peace,
and that they might live unto the Lord their God,
and that they might maintain
that which was called by their enemies
the cause of Christians.
(Alma 48:10)

Happy In Christ

And those who died
in the faith of Christ
are happy in him.
(Alma 46:41)

Ever Faithful

Stand fast in the faith of Christ.
(Alma 46:27)

Never Forsake Our Lord

Behold, the people came running together,
rending their garments in token,
or as a covenant, that they would
not forsake the Lord their God;
or, in other words, if they should
transgress the commandments of God,
or fall into transgression, and be ashamed
to take upon them the name of Christ,
the Lord should rend them
even as they had rent their garments.
(Alma 46:21)

Faithful In Christ Jesus

Moroni prayed that
the cause of the Christians,
and the freedom of the land
might be favored.

And he said:

Surely God shall not suffer that we,
who are despised because
we take upon us the name of Christ,
shall be trodden down and destroyed,
until we bring it upon us
by our own transgressions.
(Alma 46:16 & 18)

True & Faithful Christians

Those who did belong to the church were faithful;
yea, all those who were true believers in Christ
took upon them, gladly, the name of Christ,
or Christians as they were called,
because of their belief in Christ who should come.
(Alma 46:15)


He bowed himself to the earth,
and he prayed mightily unto his God
for the blessings of liberty
to rest upon his brethren,
so long as there should
a band of Christians remain
to possess the land—

For thus were all
the true believers of Christ,
who belonged to the church of God,
called by those who
did not belong to the church.
(Alma 46:13-14)

The Big Question

Believest thou
in Jesus Christ,
who shall come?
(Alma 45:4)

Unshakable Faith In Christ

But now, ye behold that the Lord is with us;
and ye behold that he has delivered you into our hands.

And now I would that ye should understand
that this is done unto us because of
our religion and our faith in Christ.

And now ye see that ye cannot destroy this our faith.
(Alma 44:3)

Restored Through Christ

Behold, it is requisite and just,
according to the power
and resurrection of Christ,
that the soul of man
should be restored to its body,
and that every part of the body
should be restored to itself.
(Alma 41:2)
