Mosiah 15:20 20 But behold, the bands of death shall be broken, and the Son reigneth, and hath power over the dead; therefore, he bringeth to pa.s.s the resurrection of the dead.
Mosiah 15:21 21 And there cometh a resurrection, even a first resurrection; yea, even a resurrection of those that have been, and who are, and who shall be, even until the resurrection of Christ--for so shall he be called.
Mosiah 15:22 22 And now, the resurrection of all the prophets, and all those that have believed in their words, or all those that have kept the commandments of G.o.d, shall come forth in the first resurrection; therefore, they are the first resurrection.
Mosiah 15:23 23 They are raised to dwell with G.o.d who has redeemed them; thus they have eternal life through Christ, who has broken the bands of death.
Mosiah 15:24 24 And these are those who have part in the first resurrection; and these are they that have died before Christ came, in their ignorance, not having salvation declared unto them. And thus the Lord bringeth about the restoration of these; and they have a part in the first resurrection, or have eternal life, being redeemed by the Lord.
Mosiah 15:25 25 And little children also have eternal life.
Mosiah 15:26 26 But behold, and fear, and tremble before G.o.d, for ye ought to tremble; for the Lord redeemeth none such that rebel against him and die in their sins; yea, even all those that have perished in their sins ever since the world began, that have wilfully rebelled against G.o.d, that have known the commandments of G.o.d, and would not keep them; these are they that have no part in the first resurrection.
Mosiah 15:27 27 Therefore ought ye not to tremble? For salvation cometh to none such; for the Lord hath redeemed none such; yea, neither can the Lord redeem such; for he cannot deny himself; for he cannot deny justice when it has its claim.
Mosiah 15:28 28 And now I say unto you that the time shall come that the salvation of the Lord shall be declared to every nation, kindred, tongue, and people.
Mosiah 15:29 29 Yea, Lord, thy watchmen shall lift up their voice; with the voice together shall they sing; for they shall see eye to eye, when the Lord shall bring again Zion.
Mosiah 15:30 30 Break forth into joy, sing together, ye waste places of Jerusalem; for the Lord hath comforted his people, he hath redeemed Jerusalem.
Mosiah 15:31 31 The Lord hath made bare his holy arm in the eyes of all the nations; and all the ends of the earth shall see the salvation of our G.o.d.
Mosiah 16 Chapter 16
Mosiah 16:1 1 And now, it came to pa.s.s that after Abinadi had spoken these words he stretched forth his hand and said: The time shall come when all shall see the salvation of the Lord; when every nation, kindred, tongue, and people shall see eye to eye and shall confess before G.o.d that his judgments are just.
Mosiah 16:2 2 And then shall the wicked be cast out, and they shall have cause to howl, and weep, and wail, and gnash their teeth; and this because they would not hearken unto the voice of the Lord; therefore the Lord redeemeth them not.
Mosiah 16:3 3 For they are carnal and devilish, and the devil has power over them; yea, even that old serpent that did beguile our first parents, which was the cause of their fall; which was the cause of all mankind becoming carnal, sensual, devilish, knowing evil from good, subjecting themselves to the devil.
Mosiah 16:4 4 Thus all mankind were lost; and behold, they would have been endlessly lost were it not that G.o.d redeemed his people from their lost and fallen state.
Mosiah 16:5 5 But remember that he that persists in his own carnal nature, and goes on in the ways of sin and rebellion against G.o.d, remaineth in his fallen state and the devil hath all power over him. Therefore, he is as though there was no redemption made, being an enemy to G.o.d; and also is the devil an enemy to G.o.d.
Mosiah 16:6 6 And now if Christ had not come into the world, speaking of things to come as though they had already come, there could have been no redemption.
Mosiah 16:7 7 And if Christ had not risen from the dead, or have broken the bands of death that the grave should have no victory, and that death should have no sting, there could have been no resurrection.
Mosiah 16:8 8 But there is a resurrection, therefore the grave hath no victory, and the sting of death is swallowed up in Christ.
Mosiah 16:9 9 He is the light and the life of the world; yea, a light that is endless, that can never be darkened; yea, and also a life which is endless, that there can be no more death.
Mosiah 16:10 10 Even this mortal shall put on immortality, and this corruption shall put on incorruption, and shall be brought to stand before the bar of G.o.d, to be judged of him according to their works whether they be good or whether they be evil--
Mosiah 16:11 11 If they be good, to the resurrection of endless life and happiness; and if they be evil, to the resurrection of endless d.a.m.nation, being delivered up to the devil, who hath subjected them, which is d.a.m.nation--
Mosiah 16:12 12 Having gone according to their own carnal wills and desires; having never called upon the Lord while the arms of mercy were extended towards them; for the arms of mercy were extended towards them, and they would not; they being warned of their iniquities and yet they would not depart from them; and they were commanded to repent and yet they would not repent.
Mosiah 16:13 13 And now, ought ye not to tremble and repent of your sins, and remember that only in and through Christ ye can be saved?
Mosiah 16:14 14 Therefore, if ye teach the law of Moses, also teach that it is a shadow of those things which are to come--
Mosiah 16:15 15 Teach them that redemption cometh through Christ the Lord, who is the very Eternal Father. Amen.
Mosiah 17 Chapter 17
Mosiah 17:1 1 And now it came to pa.s.s that when Abinadi had finished these sayings, that the king commanded that the priests should take him and cause that he should be put to death.
Mosiah 17:2 2 But there was one among them whose name was Alma, he also being a descendant of Nephi. And he was a young man, and he believed the words which Abinadi had spoken, for he knew concerning the iniquity which Abinadi has testified against them; therefore he began to plead with the king that he would not be angry with Abinadi, but suffer that he might depart in peace.
Mosiah 17:3 3 But the king was more wroth, and caused that Alma should be cast out from among them, and sent his servants after him that they might slay him.
Mosiah 17:4 4 But he fled from before them and hid himself that they found him not. And he being concealed for many days did write all the words which Abinadi had spoken.
Mosiah 17:5 5 And it came to pa.s.s that the king caused that his guards should surround Abinadi and take him; and they bound him and cast him into prison.
Mosiah 17:6 6 And after three days, having counseled with his priests, he caused that he should again be brought before him.
Mosiah 17:7 7 And he said unto him: Abinadi, we have found an accusation against thee, and thou art worthy of death.
Mosiah 17:8 8 For thou hast said that G.o.d himself should come down among the children of men; and now, for this cause thou shalt be put to death unless thou wilt recall all the words which thou hast spoken evil concerning me and my people.
Mosiah 17:9 9 Now Abinadi said unto him: I say unto you, I will not recall the words which I have spoken unto you concerning this people, for they are true; and that ye may know of their surety I have suffered myself that I have fallen into your hands.
Mosiah 17:10 10 Yea, and I will suffer even until death, and I will not recall my words, and they shall stand as a testimony against you.
And if ye slay me ye will shed innocent blood, and this shall also stand as a testimony against you at the last day.
Mosiah 17:11 11 And now king Noah was about to release him, for he feared his word; for he feared that the judgments of G.o.d would come upon him.
Mosiah 17:12 12 But the priests lifted up their voices against him, and began to accuse him, saying: He has reviled the king. Therefore the king was stirred up in anger against him, and he delivered him up that he might be slain.
Mosiah 17:13 13 And it came to pa.s.s that they took him and bound him, and scourged his skin with f.a.ggots, yea, even unto death.
Mosiah 17:14 14 And now when the flames began to scorch him, he cried unto them, saying:
Mosiah 17:15 15 Behold, even as ye have done unto me, so shall it come to pa.s.s that thy seed shall cause that many shall suffer the pains that I do suffer, even the pains of death by fire; and this because they believe in the salvation of the Lord their G.o.d.
Mosiah 17:16 16 And it will come to pa.s.s that ye shall be afflicted with all manner of diseases because of your iniquities.
Mosiah 17:17 17 Yea, and ye shall be smitten on every hand, and shall be driven and scattered to and fro, even as a wild flock is driven by wild and ferocious beasts.
Mosiah 17:18 18 And in that day ye shall be hunted, and ye shall be taken by the hand of your enemies, and then ye shall suffer, as I suffer, the pains of death by fire.
Mosiah 17:19 19 Thus G.o.d executeth vengeance upon those that destroy his people. O G.o.d, receive my soul.
Mosiah 17:20 20 And now, when Abinadi had said these words, he fell, having suffered death by fire; yea, having been put to death because he would not deny the commandments of G.o.d, having sealed the truth of his words by his death.
