Servants Of Christ

And we know our record to be true,
for behold, it was a just man
who did keep the record—
for he truly did many miracles
in the name of Jesus;
and there was not any man who could
do a miracle in the name of Jesus
save he were cleansed
every whit from his iniquity.
(3 Nephi 8:1)

Converted Through Christ

As many as were converted did
truly signify unto the people
that they had been visited by
the power and Spirit of God,
which was in Jesus Christ,
in whom they believed.
(3 Nephi 7:21)

Such Great Faith In Jesus

So great was his faith on the Lord Jesus Christ
that angels did minister unto him daily. 

And in the name of Jesus did he
cast out devils and unclean spirits;
and even his brother did he raise from the dead,
after he had been stoned and suffered death by the people.

And the people saw it, and did witness of it,
and were angry with him because of his power;
and he did also do many more miracles,
in the sight of the people, in the name of Jesus.

A Witness For Christ

And it came to pass that Nephi—
having been visited by angels
and also the voice of the Lord,
therefore having seen angels,
and being eye-witness,
and having had power given unto him
that he might know concerning
the ministry of Christ, went forth
among them in that same year,
and began to testify, boldly,
repentance and remission of sins
through faith on the Lord Jesus Christ.

Testify Boldly Of Jesus Christ

And there began to be men inspired from heaven
and sent forth, standing among the people in all the land,
preaching and testifying boldly unto them concerning
the redemption which the Lord would make for his people,
or in other words, the resurrection of Christ;
and they did testify boldly of his death and sufferings.

Now there were many of those who testified
of the things pertaining to Christ who testified boldly.
(3 Nephi 6:20 & 23)

Coming Unto Christ

And then shall they know their Redeemer,
who is Jesus Christ, the Son of God;
and then shall they be gathered in
from the four quarters of the earth
unto their own lands, from whence
they have been dispersed;
yea, as the Lord liveth so shall it be.
(3 Nephi 5:26)

Thank God For Jesus Christ

I am Mormon, and I have reason
to bless my God and my Savior Jesus Christ.
(3 Nephi 5:20)

A Disciple Of Christ

Behold, I am a disciple
of Jesus Christ, the Son of God.

I have been called of him to
declare his word among his people,
that they might have everlasting life.
(3 Nephi 5:13)

Prophets Testify Of Christ

And they knew that it must be
expedient that Christ had come,
because of the many signs
which had been given,
according to the words of the prophets.
(3 Nephi 5:2)

Jesus Is Our Foundation

And nine years had passed away
from the time when the sign was given,
which was spoken of by the prophets,
that Christ should come into the world.

Now the Nephites began to reckon their time
from this period when the sign was given,
or from the coming of Christ;
therefore, nine years had passed away.

They Knew Of Christ's Coming

And they began to know that
the Son of God must shortly appear;
yea, in fine, all the people
upon the face of the whole earth
from the west to the east,
both in the land north and in the land south
knew that the prophets had testified
of these things for many years.
(3 Nephi 1:17-18)

Preparing For Christ's Coming

Behold, Nephi was baptizing, and prophesying,
and preaching, crying repentance unto the people,
showing signs and wonders,
working miracles among the people,
that they might know that
the Christ must shortly come.
(Helaman 16:4)

Jesus Is Our True Shepherd

They shall again be brought to the true knowledge,
which is the knowledge of their Redeemer,
and their great and true shepherd
and be numbered among his sheep.
(Helaman 15:13)

Jesus Died For Us

In that day that he shall suffer death the sun
shall be darkened and refuse to give his light unto you;
and also the moon and the stars;
and there shall be no light upon the face of this land,
even from the time that he shall suffer death,
for the space of three days, to the time that
he shall rise again from the dead.

Yea, at the time that he shall yield up the ghost
there shall be thunderings and lightnings
for the space of many hours,
and the earth shall shake and tremble;
and the rocks which are upon the face of this earth,
which are both above the earth and beneath,
which ye know at this time are solid,
or the more part of it is one solid mass, shall be broken up;

Yea, they shall be rent in twain, and shall ever after be found
in seams and in cracks, and in broken fragments
upon the face of the whole earth,
yea, both above the earth and beneath.

And behold, there shall be great tempests,
and there shall be many mountains laid low, like unto a valley,
and there shall be many places which are now called valleys
which shall become mountains, whose height is great.

And many highways shall be broken up,
and many cities shall become desolate.

And many graves shall be opened,
and shall yield up many of their dead;
and many saints shall appear unto many.

And behold, thus hath the angel spoken unto me;
for he said unto me that there should be thunderings
and lightnings for the space of many hours.

And he said unto me that while the thunder
and the lightning lasted, and the tempest,
that these things should be,
and that darkness should cover
the face of the whole earth for the space of three days.

And the angel said unto me that many shall
see greater things than these, to the intent that they might believe
that these signs and these wonders should come to pass
upon all the face of this land, to the intent that
there should be no cause for unbelief among the children of men—

And this to the intent that whosoever will believe might be saved,
and that whosoever will not believe,
a righteous judgment might come upon them;
and also if they are condemned
they bring upon themselves their own condemnation.

Signs Of Christ's Death For Us

And behold, again, another sign
I give unto you, yea, a sign of his death.

For behold, he surely must die that salvation may come;
yea, it behooveth him and becometh expedient that he dieth,
to bring to pass the resurrection of the dead,
that thereby men may be brought into the presence of the Lord.

Yea, behold, this death bringeth to pass the resurrection,
and redeemeth all mankind from the first death—
that spiritual death; for all mankind, by the fall of Adam
being cut off from the presence of the Lord,
are considered as dead,
both as to things temporal and to things spiritual.

But behold, the resurrection of Christ redeemeth mankind,
yea, even all mankind, and bringeth them
back into the presence of the Lord.

Believe On Christ's Name

And ye shall hear my words,
for, for this intent have I come,
that ye might hear and know of
the judgments of God
which do await you
because of your iniquities,
and also that ye might know
the conditions of repentance;

And also that ye might know
of the coming of Jesus Christ,
the Son of God,
the Father of heaven and of earth,
the Creator of all things from the beginning;
and that ye might know
of the signs of his coming,
to the intent that ye might
believe on his name.

And if ye believe on his name
ye will repent of all your sins,
that thereby ye may have
a remission of them
through his merits.

Believe On Jesus

Whosoever shall believe on the Son of God,
the same shall have everlasting life.
(Helaman 14:8)

The Coming Of Jesus Christ

Behold, I give unto you a sign;
for five years more cometh,
and behold, then cometh the Son of God
to redeem all those who shall believe on his name.

And behold, this will I give unto you
for a sign at the time of his coming;
for behold, there shall be great lights in heaven,
insomuch that in the night before he cometh
there shall be no darkness, insomuch that
it shall appear unto man as if it was day.

Therefore, there shall be one day and a night and a day,
as if it were one day and there were no night;
and this shall be unto you for a sign;
for ye shall know of the rising of the sun
and also of its setting; therefore
they shall know of a surety that
there shall be two days and a night;
nevertheless the night shall not be darkened;
and it shall be the night before he is born.

And behold, there shall a new star arise,
such an one as ye never have beheld;
and this also shall be a sign unto you.

And behold this is not all,
there shall be many signs and wonders in heaven.

And it shall come to pass that
ye shall all be amazed, and wonder,
insomuch that ye shall fall to the earth.

The Good News Of Christ

Nothing can save this people
save it be repentance
and faith on the Lord Jesus Christ,
who surely shall come into the world,
and shall suffer many things
and shall be slain for his people.

And behold, an angel of the Lord
hath declared it unto me,
and he did bring glad tidings to my soul.
(Helaman 13:6-7)

Forget Not The Christ

Yea, and we may see at the very time
when he doth prosper his people,
yea, and in fine, doing all things for
the welfare and happiness of his people;
yea, then is the time that
they do harden their hearts,
and do forget the Lord their God,
and do trample under their feet the Holy One—
yea, and this because of their ease,
and their exceedingly great prosperity.
(Helaman 12:2)
