II Nephi 18:18-22
.
18.  Behold, I and the children whom the Lord hath given me are for signs and for wonders in Israel from the Lord of hosts, which dwelleth in mount Zion.
19.  And when they shall say unto you:  Seek unto them that have familiar spirits, and unto wizards that peep and mutter–should not a people seek unto their God for the living to hear from the dead?
20.  To the law and to the testimony; and if they speak not according to this word, it is because there in no light in them.
21.  And they shall pass through it hardly bestead and hungry, and it shall come to pass that when they shall be hungry, they shall fret themselves, and curse their king and their God, and look upward.
22.  And they shall look unto the earth and behold trouble, and darkness, dimness of anguish, and shall be driven to darkness.
Jacob 2:4-5
.
4.  For behold, as yet, ye have been obedient unto the word of the Lord, which I have given unto you.
5.  But behold, hearken ye unto me, and know that by the help of the all-powerful Creator of heaven and earth I can tell you concerning your thoughts, how that ye are beginning to labor in sin, which sin appeareth very abominable unto me, yea, and abominable unto God.
Message 23:5
.
5.  Be not contentious for this is Satan’s work; work in love with one another and with all men.  Warn the people of the things I told you and let them judge, for the Lord will require it at their hands.
Hebrews 4:12-13
.
12.  For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing assunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.
13.  Neither is there any creature that is not manifest in his sight: but all things are naked and opened unto the eyes of him with whom we have to do.
Alma 11:21-25
.
21.  And this Zeezrom began to question Amulek, saying :  Will ye answer me a few questions which I shall ask you?  Now Zeezrom was a man which was expert in the devices of the devil, that he might destroy that which was good; therefore, he saith unto Amulek:  Will ye answer the questions which I shall put unto you?
22.  And Amulek saith unto him: Yea, if it be according to the Spirit of the Lord, which is in me; for I shall say nothing contrary to the Spirit of the Lord.  And Zeezrom saith unto him:  Behold, here is six onties of silver, and all these will I give thee if thou wilt deny the existence of a Supreme Being.
23.  Now Amulek saith: O thou child of hell, why tempt ye me?  Knowest thou that the righteous yieldeth to no such temptations?
24.  Believest thou that there is no God? I say unto you, Nay, you knowest that there is a God, but thou lovest that lucre more than him.
25.  And now thou hast lied before God unto me.  Thou saidst unto me–Behold these six onties, which are of great worth, I will give unto thee–when thou had in thy heart to retain them from me; and it was only thy desire that I should deny the true and living God, that thou mightest have cause to destroy me.  And now behold, for this great evil thou shalt have thy reward.
Helaman 3:28-30
.
28.  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, which is the Son of God.
29.  Yea, we see that whosoever will 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.
30.  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 4:24-26
.
24.  And they saw that they had become weak, like unto their brethren, the Lamanites, and that the Spirit of the Lord did no more preserve them; yea, it had withdrawn from them because the Spirit of the Lord doth not dwell in unholy temples–
25.  Therefore the Lord did cease to preserve them by his miraculous and matchless power, for they had fallen into a state of unbelief and awful wickedness; and they saw that the Lamanites were more exceeding numerous than they, and except they should cleave unto the Lord their God they must unavoidably perish.
26.  For behold, they saw that the strength of the Lamanites was as great as their strength, even man for man.  And thus had they fallen into this great transgression; yes, thus had they become weak, because of their transgression, in the space of not many years.
II Corinthians 6:16-17
.
16.  And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in the, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people.
17.  Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you,
III Nephi 27:20
.
20.  Now this is the commandment:  Repent, all ye ends of the earth, and come unto me and be baptized in my name, that ye may be sanctified by the reception of the Holy Ghost, that ye may stand spotless before me at the last day.
John 15:12-16
.
12.  This is my commandment, That ye love one another, as I have loved you.
13.  Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.
14.  Ye are my friends, if ye do whatsoever I command you.
15.  Henceforth I call you not servants; for the servant knoweth not what his lord doeth: but I have called you friends; for all things that I have heard of my Father I have made known unto you.
16.  Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that ye should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain: that whatsoever ye shall ask of the Father in my name, he may give it you.
Message 7 & 8:8
.
8.  Teach the law of the Lord that the millennium may come, for great shall be the joy in heaven and angels shall sing aloud at that day.  Hearken!  The Lord has chosen his servants to proclaim the message.  Then hasten, and do not delay his work.  The Lord will bless you that labor, and the people you shall labor among, for your sake.  Labor in love; be harsh with no one; qualify to be leaders; go to the rich and poor alike.  Be not puffed up; be humble, and inasmuch as you will do this God will be with you.
Revalations 20:4-6
.
4.  And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them; and I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, and which had not worshipped the beast, neither his image, neither had received his mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands; and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years.
5.  But the rest of the dead lived not again until the thousand years were finished, This is the first resurrection.
6.  Blessed and holy is he that hath part in the first resurrection: on such the second death hath no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with him a thousand years.
I Nephi 22:25-26
.
25.  And he gathereth his sheep, and they know him; and there shall be one fold and one Shepherd; and he shall feed his sheep, and in him they shall find pasture.
26.  And because of the righteousness of his people, Satan hath no power; wherefore, he cannot be loosed for the space of many years; for he hath no power over the hearts of the people, for they dwell in righteousness, and the Holy One of Israel reigneth.
John 15:12-16
.
12.  This is my commandment, That ye love one another, as I have loved you.
13.  Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.
14.  Ye are my friends, if ye do whatsoever I command you.
15.  Henceforth I call you not servants; for the servant knoweth not what his lord doeth: but I have called you friends; for all things that I have heard of my Father I have made known unto you.
16.  Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that ye should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain: that whatsoever ye shall ask of the Father in my name, he may give it you.
Helaman 14:15-19.
15.  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.
16.  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 thing spiritual
17.  But behold, the resurrection of Christ redeemeth mankind yea, even all mankind, and bringeth them back into the presence of the Lord.
18.  Yea, and it bringeth to pass the condition of repentance, that whosoever repenteth the same is not hewn down and cast into the fire; and there cometh upon them again a spiritual death, yea, a second death, for they are cut off again as to things pertaining to righteousness.
19.  Therefore repent ye, repent ye, lest by knowing these things and not doing them ye shall suffer yourselves to come under condemnation, and ye are brought down unto this second death.
Alma 12:32-34.
32.  Therefore God gave unto them commandments, after having made known unto them the plan of redemption, that they should not do evil, the penalty thereof being a second death, which was an everlasting death as to things pertaining unto righteousness; for on such the plan of redemption could have no power, for the works of justice could not be destroyed, according to the supreme goodness of God.
33.  But 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 I will have mercy upon you, through min Only Begotten Son;
34.  Therefore, whosoever repenteth, and hardeneth not his heart, he shall have claim on mercy through mine Only Begotten Son, unto a remission of their sins; and these shall enter into my rest.
Message 42:9.
9.  Let all pray much that when the evil powers arise, they shall not harm the work of the Lord.  As ye labor, labor in love.  As one, stand together and the powers of darkness shall fade before you.  Be kind to all men.  Be ye observant.
Message 85:22-23.
22.  There was the incarnate of God in the flesh to offer the sacrifice of ending all spilling of blood and the altars of figurations and shadow.  That men might give a broken heart and contrite spirit to serve a living God.
23.  Flesh death and sin must come to an end for the quickening of Spirit of God to rule and dwell in mankind in righteousness.
