God Gives Prophets Power To Act And Testify

For Family Home Evening, we watched an episode each of ‘Quantum Leap’ and ‘Magnum P.I.’

“God gave power unto on man, even Moses, to smite upon the waters of the Red Sea and they parted hither and thither, insomuch that the Israelites, who were our fathers, came through upon dry ground, and the waters closed upon the armies of the Egyptians and swallowed them up” (Helaman 8:11)

“the words which were spoken by this man, Moses, who 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.

And now behold, Moses did not only testify of these things, but also all the holy prophets, from his days even to the days of Abraham.

Yea, and behold, Abraham saw of his coming, and was filled with gladness and did rejoice.

Yea, and behold I say unto you, that Abraham not only knew of these things, but there were many before the days of Abraham who were called by the order of God; yea, even after the order of his Son; and this that it should be shown unto the people, a great many thousand years before his coming, that even redemption should come unto them.

. . . since the days of Abraham there have been many prophets that have testified these things . . .

. . . Isaiah, and Jeremiah . . .” (Helaman 8:13-20)

This is what I previously wrote after reading Helaman 8:  Thank God For Prophets And For Beautiful Songs!
