“Yea, thus saith the Spirit: Repent, all ye ends of the earth, for the kingdom of heaven is soon at hand; yea, the Son of God cometh in his glory, in his might, majesty, power, and dominion. Yea, my beloved brethren, I say unto you, that the Spirit saith: Behold the glory of the King of all the earth; and also the King of heaven shall very soon shine forth among all the children of men.” – Alma 5:50
“Let the mountains shout for joy, and all ye valleys cry aloud; and all ye seas and dry lands tell the wonders of your Eternal King! And ye rivers, and brooks, and rills, flow down with gladness. Let the woods and all the trees of the field praise the Lord; and ye solid rocks weep for joy! And let the sun, moon, and the morning stars sing together, and let all the sons of God shout for joy! And let the eternal creations declare his name forever and ever! And again I say, how glorious is the voice we hear from heaven, proclaiming in our ears, glory, and salvation, and honor, and immortality, and eternal life; kingdoms, principalities, and powers!” – D&C 128:23
I don’t know why it has taken me so long to finally post this. I should have had this series done weeks ago. But at least I’m finishing!
Throughout these scriptures, we’ve studied a lot about Christ – what naturally comes when we study Him is a deepened sense of love and gratitude for Him. As our relationship with Him grows, we become more aware of our dependence on Him.
I have a testimony that Jesus Christ is my Savior. Though I don’t totally understand how deeply the atonement affects me, I have seen many blessings in my life. I know that the Lord has blessed me, personally. I have felt His mercy and love. It is overwhelming.
I feel like praising him. I feel like Nephi who said, “I glory in plainness; I glory in truth; I glory in my Jesus, for he hath redeemed my soul from hell.” – 2 Nephi 33:6. I have felt these blessings in my life. I have seen miracles take place in my life, and I know that the only explanation is the grace and mercy of Christ – and His atonement.
As I’ve felt this love for my Savior grow, I want to join the choruses that praise Christ. I’m grateful to know that, despite His rejection during His life on earth, He will be glorified. He will be our King forever.
