The Prophet Joseph Smith's Testimony

THE DOCTRINE AND COVENANTS

SECTION 76

And now, after the many testimonies which have been given of him, this is the atestimony, last of all, which we give of him: That he blives!

For we asaw him, even on the bright hand of cGod; and we heard the voice bearing record that he is the Only dBegotten of the Father—

That by ahim, and through him, and of him, the bworlds are and were created, and the cinhabitants thereof are begotten dsons and daughters unto God.

Testimony of  Gordon B Hinckley

Gordon B. Hinckley, “My Testimony,” Ensign, May 2000, 69
 
That testimony grew in my heart as a missionary when I read the New Testament and the Book of Mormon, which further bore witness of Him. That knowledge became the foundation of my life, standing on the footings of the answered prayers of my childhood.

Since then my faith has grown much further. I have become His Apostle, appointed to do His will and teach His word. I have become His witness to the world. I repeat that witness of faith to you and to all who hear my voice this Sabbath morning.

Jesus is my friend. None other has given me so much. “Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends” (John 15:13). He gave His life for me. He opened the way to eternal life. Only a God could do this. 
I hope that I am deemed worthy of being a friend to Him.

He is my exemplar. His way of life, His absolutely selfless conduct, His outreach to those in need, His final sacrifice all stand as an example to me. I cannot measure up entirely, but I can try.

No other teacher has ever offered the matchless counsel given the multitude on the mount.

He is my healer. I stand in awe at His wondrous miracles. And yet I know they happened. I accept the truth of these things because I know that He is the Master of life and death. The miracles of His ministry bespeak compassion, love,
and a sense of humanity wonderful to behold.

He is my leader. I am honored to be one in the long cavalcade of those who love Him and who have followed Him during the two millennia that have passed since His birth.

He is my Savior and my Redeemer. Through giving His life in pain and unspeakable suffering, He has reached down to lift me and each of us and all the sons and daughters of God from the abyss of eternal darkness following death. He has provided something better—a sphere of light and understanding, growth and beauty where we may go forward on the road that leads to eternal life. My gratitude knows no bounds. My thanks to my Lord has no conclusion.

He is my God and my King. From everlasting to everlasting, He will reign and rule as King of Kings and Lord of Lords. To His dominion there will be no end. To His glory there will be no night.

None other can take His place. None other ever will. Unblemished and without fault of any kind, He is the Lamb of God, to whom I bow and through whom I approach my Father in Heaven.

Gratefully, and with love undiminished, I bear witness of these things in His Holy name, even the name of Jesus the Christ, amen.

 
The Testimony of James E. Faust

James E. Faust, “A Growing Testimony,” Ensign, Nov. 2000, 53


My beloved brothers and sisters and friends, I have lived a long time. As I look back over my life, I recognize one source of singular strength and blessing. It ismy testimony and knowledge that Jesus is the Christ, the Savior and Redeemer of all mankind. I am profoundly grateful that all of my life I have had a simple faith that Jesus is the Christ. That witness has been confirmed to me hundreds of times. It is the crowning knowledge of my soul. It is the spiritual light of my being. It is the cornerstone of my life.

As one of the least among you but in my calling as one of His Apostles, I testify of the Christ as our Savior and the Redeemer of the world. Since this testimony has been forged by a lifetime of experiences, of necessity this requires my relating experiences which are very personal in nature. But this testimony is mine, and I feel that the Savior knows that I know that He lives.

The Testimony of Bruce R. McConkie

And now, as pertaining to this perfect atonement, wrought by the shedding of the blood of God—I testify that it took place in Gethsemane and at Golgotha, andas pertaining to Jesus Christ, I testify that he is the Son of the Living God and was crucified for the sins of the world. He is our Lord, our God, and our King. This I know of myself independent of any other person.

I am one of his witnesses, and in a coming day I shall feel the nail marks in his hands and in his feet and shall wet his feet with my tears.

But I shall not know any better then than I know now that he is God’s Almighty Son, that he is our Savior and Redeemer, and that salvation comes in and through his atoning blood and in no other way.

God grant that all of us may walk in the light as God our Father is in the light so that, according to the promises, the blood of Jesus Christ his Son will cleanse us from all sin.

In the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, amen.


Bruce R. McConkie, “The Purifying Power of Gethsemane,” Ensign, May 1985, 9

 

The Testimony of Thomas S. Monson

Thomas S. Monson on Testimony of the Savior
-------------------------------------------

[For biography and additional teachings of President Monson, see:
http://www.ldsworld.com/gems/teachings/authlist/0,4112,10,00.html


"Of Him who delivered each of us from endless death, even Jesus Christ, I
testify that He is a teacher of truth -- but He is more than a teacher.
He is the Exemplar of the perfect life -- but He is more than an exemplar.
He is the Great Physician -- but He is more than a physician. He who
rescued the lost battalion of mankind is the literal Savior of the world,
the Son of God, the Prince of Peace, the Holy One of Israel -- even the
risen Lord -- who declared, 'I am the first and the last; I am he who
liveth, I am he who was slain; I am your advocate with the Father.' (D&C
110:4.)

"My dear brethren, let each of us:
Learn of Him.
Believe in Him.
Trust in Him.
Follow Him.
Obey Him.

"By so doing, we can become like Him. Of this truth I solemnly bear
witness."

(Thomas S. Monson, "Today Determines Tomorrow," General Conference October
1998; see _Ensign_, Nov. 1998, p. 51)
