Today's Favorite Verse: Mormon 7:8-9

Today's Favorite Verse: Mormon 7:8-9
"Therefore repent, and be baptized in the name of Jesus, and lay hold upon the gospel of Christ, which shall be set before you, not only in this record but also in the record which shall come unto the Gentiles from the Jews, which record shall come from the Gentiles unto you.
For behold, this is written for the intent that ye may believe that; and if ye believe that ye will believe this also; and if ye believe ye will believe this also; and if ye believe this ye will know concerning your fathers, and also the marvelous works which were wrought by the power of God among them."

It is 385 AD and Mormon is writing to the "remnant of this people". For they are of the House of Israel. That the record that he writes will come to them by way of the Gentiles. After they have received the record of the Jews, which is the Holy Bible. The record that would come after is the Book of Mormon, named after him. Mormon saw our day and abridged the plates of Nephi to give us exactly what we needed in the latter-days. It is not a complete history of the people, those are upon other plates that are now hidden. This record is from the tribe of Joseph and contains the truths we need to fully understand the gospel of Christ. I know reading the Book of Mormon does help me understand and strengthen my testimony of the words contained in the bible. It is because of words of the bible I can also believe the Book of Mormon. They go together, and bare witness of Christ. One would not be complete without the other. The Book of Mormon is not just for the members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. It is for the world. It truly does testify of Christ. I pray you will desire to read it.
