Mormon 7

Mormon 7 is a fantastic chapter for doctrine and principle.  Wow!

Every single verse has something… read and learn.  Mormon is not asking questions in this chapter, he is making statements, and I hear them loud and clear.  Here is a bullet point list of what he is telling us that are eternal truths and laws:

  • God will give us Mormon’s words
  • We are of the house of Israel
  • We must come unto repentance to be saved
  • We must not war one with another
  • We must learn of our fathers
  • We must repent of our sin and iniquity
  • We must believe in Jesus Christ and that he is the Son of God
  • We must believe that Jesus Christ was slain by the Jews
  • We must believe that Jesus Christ arose from the grave and that through his death, the sting of death is swallowed up
  • We must know that Jesus Christ brings to pass the resurrection of the dead so that all can stand before the judgement-seat
  • We must know that Jesus Christ brings to pass the redemption of the world and that at judgment day those that are righteous will dwell int he presence of God
  • We need to be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ
  • We need to receive the Holy Ghost
  • If we believe the words of the Bible, we should believe also the words in the Book of Mormon and vice versa
  • If we follow these instructions, at the last day, the day of judgment, all will be well with us in that day.

What a straight forward chapter written by Mormon.  A fantastic and to the point, “live like this” message.  I do love the words written for us in this day in the Book of Mormon, by the hands of many prophets.

I leave these truths with you in the name of Jesus Christ, Amen.
