If you have started to practice blogging, or have just started with what you want to be an official blog for you, that is fantastic.

I guess now might be a good time to find some products to sell on your blog. But when you go to do that, I would highly suggest that you only do one item per blog entry. If you load up your blog with links or banners to various products, people will get turned off and go somewhere else.

Remember that your readers may be looking for information on how to solve a problem, or just want to enjoy some reading about a topic that they share an interest in with you. Overloading them with products to buy shouldn’t be what your blog is about. And if you do put too many links or banners in a post, especially with blogger, you will probably get your blog deleted.

To find items from TripleClicks that you think might work on your blog, take a look at the image below. This is how I find items to advertise.

I use the advanced filter search in TripleClicks. Just click on Products, and then Advanced Search. You can select different filters to find different categories of items. In this example, I searched for items with at least a 4.5 rating, the best selling, and the ones that had free shipping in the Jewelry department.

You can search all kinds of different ways. Just play around with the different filters to see what comes up. You can’t break anything, so start searching. If you haven’t found something to blog about, maybe looking for items will help you find a topic that interests you.

Once you find some items you think will fit well with your blog, you can create banners that should work nicely with your topic. Just use the SFI Toolbox to get to the tools to create a banner you like.

Next time, a little info on Facebook, You Tube and Google+

The Book of Mormon 3 Nephi Chapter 9 – 20

 The Book of Mormon 3 Nephi Chapter 9 – 20

A replica of the plates from which the Book of Mormon and the Sealed Portion were Translated.

After the Resurrection Christ Jesus had ministered among His followers at Jerusalem, He appeared and ministered to the Native American People on the American Continent, this according to the condensed record of that people  known as the Book of Mormon.  This book was translated by the Gift and Power of God by use of ancient advanced instrument called the Urim and Thummim in the hands of a servant of our Advanced Parents by the name of Joseph Smith Jr.

Chapter 9 of third Nephi is an account of the destruction that took place on the American Continent at the time of the murder of the Christ by the hands of his friends the Jews.  There was a great change in the land and much destruction of  cities and loss of life.

The record goes on to tell about the Christs work and teachings among the inhabitants that survived the great destruction.

The Book of Mormon 3 Nephi Chapter 9 – 20

Chapter 9

In the darkness, the voice of Christ proclaims the destruction of many people and cities for their wickedness—He also proclaims His divinity, announces that the law of Moses is fulfilled, and invites men to come unto Him and be saved. About A.D. 34.

 1 And it came to pass that there was a voice heard among all the inhabitants of the earth, upon all the face of this land, crying:

 2 Wo, wo, wo unto this people; wo unto the inhabitants of the whole earth except they shall repent; for the devillaugheth, and his angels rejoice, because of the slain of the fair sons and daughters of my people; and it is because of their iniquity and abominations that they are fallen!

 3 Behold, that great city Zarahemla have I burned with fire, and the inhabitants thereof.

 4 And behold, that great city Moroni have I caused to besunk in the depths of the sea, and the inhabitants thereof to be drowned.

 5 And behold, that great city Moronihah have I covered with earth, and the inhabitants thereof, to hide their iniquities and their abominations from before my face, that the blood of the prophets and the saints shall not come any more unto me against them.

 6 And behold, the city of Gilgal have I caused to be sunk, and the inhabitants thereof to be buried up in the depths of the earth;

 7 Yea, and the city of Onihah and the inhabitants thereof, and the city of Mocum and the inhabitants thereof, and the city of Jerusalem and the inhabitants thereof; and watershave I caused to come up in the stead thereof, to hide their wickedness and abominations from before my face, that the blood of the prophets and the saints shall not come upany more unto me against them.

 8 And behold, the city of Gadiandi, and the city of Gadiomnah, and the city of Jacob, and the city of Gimgimno, all these have I caused to be sunk, and madehills and valleys in the places thereof; and the inhabitants thereof have I buried up in the depths of the earth, to hide their wickedness and abominations from before my face, that the blood of the prophets and the saints should not come up any more unto me against them.

 9 And behold, that great city Jacobugath, which was inhabited by the people of king Jacob, have I caused to be burned with fire because of their sins and theirwickedness, which was above all the wickedness of the whole earth, because of their secret murders and combinations; for it was they that did destroy the peace of my people and the government of the land; therefore I did cause them to be burned, to destroy them from before my face, that the blood of the prophets and the saints should not come up unto me any more against them.

 10 And behold, the city of Laman, and the city of Josh, and the city of Gad, and the city of Kishkumen, have I caused to be burned with fire, and the inhabitants thereof, because of their wickedness in casting out the prophets, and stoning those whom I did send to declare unto them concerning their wickedness and their abominations.

 11 And because they did cast them all out, that there were none righteous among them, I did send down fire and destroy them, that their wickedness and abominations might be hid from before my face, that the blood of the prophets and the saints whom I sent among them might not cry unto me from the ground against them.

 12 And many great destructions have I caused to come upon this land, and upon this people, because of their wickedness and their abominations.

 13 O all ye that are spared because ye were morerighteous than they, will ye not now return unto me, and repent of your sins, and be converted, that I may heal you?

 14 Yea, verily I say unto you, if ye will come unto me ye shall have eternal life. Behold, mine arm of mercy is extended towards you, and whosoever will come, him will I receive; and blessed are those who come unto me.

 15 Behold, I am Jesus Christ the Son of God. I created the heavens and the earth, and all things that in them are. I was with the Father from the beginning. I am in the Father, and the Father in me; and in me hath the Father glorified his name.

 16 I came unto my own, and my own received me not. And the scriptures concerning my coming are fulfilled.

 17 And as many as have received me, to them have I givento become the sons of God; and even so will I to as many as shall believe on my name, for behold, by meredemption cometh, and in me is the law of Moses fulfilled.

 18 I am the light and the life of the world. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end.

 19 And ye shall offer up unto me no more the shedding of blood; yea, your sacrifices and your burnt offerings shall be done away, for I will accept none of your sacrifices and your burnt offerings.

 20 And ye shall offer for a sacrifice unto me a broken heart and a contrite spirit. And whoso cometh unto me with a broken heart and a contrite spirit, him will I baptize with fire and with the Holy Ghost, even as the Lamanites, because of their faith in me at the time of their conversion, were baptized with fire and with the Holy Ghost, and they knew it not.

 21 Behold, I have come unto the world to bringredemption unto the world, to save the world from sin.

 22 Therefore, whoso repenteth and cometh unto me as alittle child, him will I receive, for of such is the kingdom of God. Behold, for such I have laid down my life, and have taken it up again; therefore repent, and come unto me ye ends of the earth, and be saved.

Third NephiThe Book of Nephithe Son of Nephi, Who Was the Son of Helaman

Chapter 10

There is silence in the land for many hours—The voice of Christ promises to gather His people as a hen gathers her chickens—The more righteous part of the people have been preserved. AboutA.D. 34–35.

 1 And now behold, it came to pass that all the people of the land did hear these sayings, and did witness of it. And after these sayings there was silence in the land for the space of many hours;

 2 For so great was the astonishment of the people that they did cease lamenting and howling for the loss of their kindred which had been slain; therefore there was silence in all the land for the space of many hours.

 3 And it came to pass that there came a voice again unto the people, and all the people did hear, and did witness of it, saying:

 4 O ye people of these great cities which have fallen, who are descendants of Jacob, yea, who are of the house of Israel, how oft have I gathered you as a hen gathereth her chickens under her wings, and have nourished you.

 5 And again, how oft would I have gathered you as a hen gathereth her chickens under her wings, yea, O ye people of the house of Israel, who have fallen; yea, O ye people of the house of Israel, ye that dwell at Jerusalem, as ye that have fallen; yea, how oft would I have gathered you as a hen gathereth her chickens, and ye would not.

 6 O ye house of Israel whom I have spared, how oft will I gather you as a hen gathereth her chickens under her wings, if ye will repent and return unto me with full purpose of heart.

 7 But if not, O house of Israel, the places of your dwellings shall become desolate until the time of the fulfilling of thecovenant to your fathers.

 8 And now it came to pass that after the people had heard these words, behold, they began to weep and howl againbecause of the loss of their kindred and friends.

 9 And it came to pass that thus did the three days pass away. And it was in the morning, and the darknessdispersed from off the face of the land, and the earth did cease to tremble, and the rocks did cease to rend, and the dreadful groanings did cease, and all the tumultuous noises did pass away.

 10 And the earth did cleave together again, that it stood; and the mourning, and the weeping, and the wailing of the people who were spared alive did cease; and their mourning was turned into joy, and their lamentations into the praise and thanksgiving unto the Lord Jesus Christ, their Redeemer.

 11 And thus far were the scriptures fulfilled which had been spoken by the prophets.

 12 And it was the more righteous part of the people who were saved, and it was they who received the prophets and stoned them not; and it was they who had not shed the blood of the saints, who were spared—

 13 And they were spared and were not sunk and buried up in the earth; and they were not drowned in the depths of the sea; and they were not burned by fire, neither were they fallen upon and crushed to death; and they were not carried away in the whirlwind; neither were they overpowered by the vapor of smoke and of darkness.

 14 And now, whoso readeth, let him understand; he that hath the scriptures, let him search them, and see and behold if all these deaths and destructions by fire, and by smoke, and by tempests, and by whirlwinds, and by theopening of the earth to receive them, and all these things are not unto the fulfilling of the prophecies of many of the holy prophets.

 15 Behold, I say unto you, Yea, many have testified of these things at the coming of Christ, and were slainbecause they testified of these things.

 16 Yea, the prophet Zenos did testify of these things, and also Zenock spake concerning these things, because they testified particularly concerning us, who are the remnant of their seed.

 17 Behold, our father Jacob also testified concerning aremnant of the seed of Joseph. And behold, are not we a remnant of the seed of Joseph? And these things which testify of us, are they not written upon the plates of brass which our father Lehi brought out of Jerusalem?

 18 And it came to pass that in the ending of the thirty and fourth year, behold, I will show unto you that the people of Nephi who were spared, and also those who had been called Lamanites, who had been spared, did have great favors shown unto them, and great blessings poured out upon their heads, insomuch that soon after the ascensionof Christ into heaven he did truly manifest himself unto them—

 19 Showing his body unto them, and ministering unto them; and an account of his ministry shall be given hereafter. Therefore for this time I make an end of my sayings.

The Book of Nephithe Son of Nephi, Who Was the Son of Helaman

Jesus Christ did show himself unto the people of Nephi, as the multitude were gathered together in the land Bountiful, and did minister unto them; and on this wise did he show himself unto them.
Comprising chapters 11 through 26.

Chapter 11

The Father testifies of His Beloved Son—Christ appears and proclaims His Atonement—The people feel the wound marks in His hands and feet and side—They cry Hosanna—He sets forth the mode and manner of baptism—The spirit of contention is of the devil—Christ’s doctrine is that men should believe and be baptized and receive the Holy Ghost. About A.D. 34.

 1 And now it came to pass that there were a great multitude gathered together, of the people of Nephi, round about the temple which was in the land Bountiful; and they were marveling and wondering one with another, and were showing one to another the great and marvelous change which had taken place.

 2 And they were also conversing about this Jesus Christ, of whom the sign had been given concerning his death.

 3 And it came to pass that while they were thus conversing one with another, they heard a voice as if it came out of heaven; and they cast their eyes round about, for they understood not the voice which they heard; and it was not a harsh voice, neither was it a loud voice; nevertheless, and notwithstanding it being a small voice it did pierce them that did hear to the center, insomuch that there was no part of their frame that it did not cause to quake; yea, it did pierce them to the very soul, and did cause their hearts to burn.

 4 And it came to pass that again they heard the voice, and they understood it not.

 5 And again the third time they did hear the voice, and did open their ears to hear it; and their eyes were towards the sound thereof; and they did look steadfastly towards heaven, from whence the sound came.

 6 And behold, the third time they did understand the voice which they heard; and it said unto them:

 7 Behold my Beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased, in whom I have glorified my name—hear ye him.

 8 And it came to pass, as they understood they cast their eyes up again towards heaven; and behold, they saw a Man descending out of heaven; and he was clothed in a white robe; and he came down and stood in the midst of them; and the eyes of the whole multitude were turned upon him, and they durst not open their mouths, even one to another, and wist not what it meant, for they thought it was an angel that had appeared unto them.

 9 And it came to pass that he stretched forth his hand and spake unto the people, saying:

 10 Behold, I am Jesus Christ, whom the prophets testified shall come into the world.

 11 And behold, I am the light and the life of the world; and I have drunk out of that bitter cup which the Father hath given me, and have glorified the Father in takingupon me the sins of the world, in the which I have suffered the will of the Father in all things from the beginning.

 12 And it came to pass that when Jesus had spoken these words the whole multitude fell to the earth; for they remembered that it had been prophesied among them that Christ should show himself unto them after his ascension into heaven.

 13 And it came to pass that the Lord spake unto them saying:

 14 Arise and come forth unto me, that ye may thrust your hands into my side, and also that ye may feel the prints of the nails in my hands and in my feet, that ye may know that I am the God of Israel, and the God of the whole earth, and have been slain for the sins of the world.

 15 And it came to pass that the multitude went forth, and thrust their hands into his side, and did feel the prints of the nails in his hands and in his feet; and this they did do, going forth one by one until they had all gone forth, and did see with their eyes and did feel with their hands, and did know of a surety and did bear record, that it was he, of whom it was written by the prophets, that should come.

 16 And when they had all gone forth and had witnessed for themselves, they did cry out with one accord, saying:

 17 Hosanna! Blessed be the name of the Most High God! And they did fall down at the feet of Jesus, and didworship him.

 18 And it came to pass that he spake unto Nephi (for Nephi was among the multitude) and he commanded him that he should come forth.

 19 And Nephi arose and went forth, and bowed himself before the Lord and did kiss his feet.

 20 And the Lord commanded him that he should arise. And he arose and stood before him.

 21 And the Lord said unto him: I give unto you powerthat ye shall baptize this people when I am again ascended into heaven.

 22 And again the Lord called others, and said unto them likewise; and he gave unto them power to baptize. And he said unto them: On this wise shall ye baptize; and there shall be no disputations among you.

23 Verily I say unto you, that whoso repenteth of his sins through your words, and desireth to be baptized in my name, on this wise shall ye baptize them—Behold, ye shall go down and stand in the water, and in my name shall ye baptize them.

 24 And now behold, these are the words which ye shall say, calling them by name, saying:

 25 Having authority given me of Jesus Christ, I baptize you in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost. Amen.

 26 And then shall ye immerse them in the water, and come forth again out of the water.

 27 And after this manner shall ye baptize in my name; for behold, verily I say unto you, that the Father, and the Son, and the Holy Ghost are one; and I am in the Father, and the Father in me, and the Father and I are one.

 28 And according as I have commanded you thus shall ye baptize. And there shall be no disputations among you, as there have hitherto been; neither shall there be disputations among you concerning the points of my doctrine, as there have hitherto been.

 29 For verily, verily I say unto you, he that hath the spirit of contention is not of me, but is of the devil, who is the father of contention, and he stirreth up the hearts of men to contend with anger, one with another.

 30 Behold, this is not my doctrine, to stir up the hearts of men with anger, one against another; but this is my doctrine, that such things should be done away.

 31 Behold, verily, verily, I say unto you, I will declare unto you my doctrine.

 32 And this is my doctrine, and it is the doctrine which the Father hath given unto me; and I bear record of the Father, and the Father beareth record of me, and the Holy Ghost beareth record of the Father and me; and I bear record that the Father commandeth all men, everywhere, to repent and believe in me.

 33 And whoso believeth in me, and is baptized, the same shall be saved; and they are they who shall inherit the kingdom of God.

 34 And whoso believeth not in me, and is not baptized, shall be damned.

 35 Verily, verily, I say unto you, that this is my doctrine, and I bear record of it from the Father; and whosobelieveth in me believeth in the Father also; and unto him will the Father bear record of me, for he will visit him withfire and with the Holy Ghost.

 36 And thus will the Father bear record of me, and theHoly Ghost will bear record unto him of the Father and me; for the Father, and I, and the Holy Ghost are one.

 37 And again I say unto you, ye must repent, and becomeas a little child, and be baptized in my name, or ye can in nowise receive these things.

 38 And again I say unto you, ye must repent, and be baptized in my name, and become as a little child, or ye can in nowise inherit the kingdom of God.

 39 Verily, verily, I say unto you, that this is my doctrine, and whoso buildeth upon this buildeth upon my rock, and the gates of hell shall not prevail against them.

 40 And whoso shall declare more or less than this, and establish it for my doctrine, the same cometh of evil, and is not built upon my rock; but he buildeth upon a sandyfoundation, and the gates of hell stand open to receive such when the floods come and the winds beat upon them.

 41 Therefore, go forth unto this people, and declare the words which I have spoken, unto the ends of the earth.

Chapter 12

Jesus calls and commissions the twelve disciples—He delivers to the Nephites a discourse similar to the Sermon on the Mount—He speaks the Beatitudes—His teachings transcend and take precedence over the law of Moses—Men are commanded to be perfect even as He and His Father are perfect—CompareMatthew 5. About A.D. 34.

 1 And it came to pass that when Jesus had spoken these words unto Nephi, and to those who had been called, (now the number of them who had been called, and received power and authority to baptize, was twelve) and behold, he stretched forth his hand unto the multitude, and cried unto them, saying: Blessed are ye if ye shall give heed unto the words of these twelve whom I have chosenfrom among you to minister unto you, and to be your servants; and unto them I have given power that they may baptize you with water; and after that ye are baptized with water, behold, I will baptize you with fire and with the Holy Ghost; therefore blessed are ye if ye shall believe in me and be baptized, after that ye have seen me and know that I am.

 2 And again, more blessed are they who shall believe in your words because that ye shall testify that ye have seen me, and that ye know that I am. Yea, blessed are they who shall believe in your words, and come down into the depths of humility and be baptized, for they shall be visited with fire and with the Holy Ghost, and shall receive a remission of their sins.

 3 Yea, blessed are the poor in spirit who come unto me, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

 4 And again, blessed are all they that mourn, for they shall be comforted.

 5 And blessed are the meek, for they shall inherit theearth.

 6 And blessed are all they who do hunger and thirst afterrighteousness, for they shall be filled with the Holy Ghost.

 7 And blessed are the merciful, for they shall obtain mercy.

 8 And blessed are all the pure in heart, for they shall seeGod.

 9 And blessed are all the peacemakers, for they shall be called the children of God.

 10 And blessed are all they who are persecuted for my name’s sake, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

 11 And blessed are ye when men shall revile you and persecute, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake;

 12 For ye shall have great joy and be exceedingly glad, for great shall be your reward in heaven; for so persecutedthey the prophets who were before you.

 13 Verily, verily, I say unto you, I give unto you to be thesalt of the earth; but if the salt shall lose its savor wherewith shall the earth be salted? The salt shall be thenceforth good for nothing, but to be cast out and to be trodden under foot of men.

 14 Verily, verily, I say unto you, I give unto you to be the light of this people. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hid.

 15 Behold, do men light a candle and put it under a bushel? Nay, but on a candlestick, and it giveth light to all that are in the house;

 16 Therefore let your light so shine before this people, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father who is in heaven.

 17 Think not that I am come to destroy the law or the prophets. I am not come to destroy but to fulfil;

 18 For verily I say unto you, one jot nor one tittle hath not passed away from the law, but in me it hath all been fulfilled.

 19 And behold, I have given you the law and the commandments of my Father, that ye shall believe in me, and that ye shall repent of your sins, and come unto me with a broken heart and a contrite spirit. Behold, ye have the commandments before you, and the law is fulfilled.

 20 Therefore come unto me and be ye saved; for verily I say unto you, that except ye shall keep mycommandments, which I have commanded you at this time, ye shall in no case enter into the kingdom of heaven.

 21 Ye have heard that it hath been said by them of old time, and it is also written before you, that thou shalt notkill, and whosoever shall kill shall be in danger of the judgment of God;

 22 But I say unto you, that whosoever is angry with his brother shall be in danger of his judgment. And whosoever shall say to his brother, Raca, shall be in danger of the council; and whosoever shall say, Thou fool, shall be in danger of hell fire.

 23 Therefore, if ye shall come unto me, or shall desire to come unto me, and rememberest that thy brother hath aught against thee—

 24 Go thy way unto thy brother, and first be reconciled to thy brother, and then come unto me with full purpose of heart, and I will receive you.

 25 Agree with thine adversary quickly while thou art in the way with him, lest at any time he shall get thee, and thou shalt be cast into prison.

 26 Verily, verily, I say unto thee, thou shalt by no means come out thence until thou hast paid the uttermost senine. And while ye are in prison can ye pay even one senine? Verily, verily, I say unto you, Nay.

 27 Behold, it is written by them of old time, that thou shalt not commit adultery;

 28 But I say unto you, that whosoever looketh on a woman, to lust after her, hath committed adultery already in his heart.

 29 Behold, I give unto you a commandment, that ye suffernone of these things to enter into your heart;

 30 For it is better that ye should deny yourselves of these things, wherein ye will take up your cross, than that ye should be cast into hell.

 31 It hath been written, that whosoever shall put away his wife, let him give her a writing of divorcement.

 32 Verily, verily, I say unto you, that whosoever shall put away his wife, saving for the cause of fornication, causeth her to commit adultery; and whoso shall marry her who is divorced committeth adultery.

 33 And again it is written, thou shalt not forswear thyself, but shalt perform unto the Lord thine oaths;

 34 But verily, verily, I say unto you, swear not at all; neither by heaven, for it is God’s throne;

 35 Nor by the earth, for it is his footstool;

 36 Neither shalt thou swear by thy head, because thou canst not make one hair black or white;

 37 But let your communication be Yea, yea; Nay, nay; for whatsoever cometh of more than these is evil.

 38 And behold, it is written, an eye for an eye, and a tooth for a tooth;

 39 But I say unto you, that ye shall not resist evil, but whosoever shall smite thee on thy right cheek, turn to him the other also;

 40 And if any man will sue thee at the law and take away thy coat, let him have thy cloak also;

 41 And whosoever shall compel thee to go a mile, go with him twain.

 42 Give to him that asketh thee, and from him that wouldborrow of thee turn thou not away.

 43 And behold it is written also, that thou shalt love thy neighbor and hate thine enemy;

 44 But behold I say unto you, love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, andpray for them who despitefully use you and persecute you;

 45 That ye may be the children of your Father who is in heaven; for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good.

 46 Therefore those things which were of old time, which were under the law, in me are all fulfilled.

 47 Old things are done away, and all things have becomenew.

 48 Therefore I would that ye should be perfect even as I, or your Father who is in heaven is perfect.

  • Third NephiThe Book of Nephithe Son of Nephi, Who Was the Son of Helaman

    Chapter 13

    Jesus teaches the Nephites the Lord’s Prayer—They are to lay up treasures in heaven—The twelve disciples in their ministry are commanded to take no thought for temporal things—Compare Matthew 6. About A.D. 34.

 1 Verily, verily, I say that I would that ye should do alms unto the poor; but take heed that ye do not your alms before men to be seen of them; otherwise ye have no reward of your Father who is in heaven.

 2 Therefore, when ye shall do your alms do not sound a trumpet before you, as will hypocrites do in the synagogues and in the streets, that they may have glory of men. Verily I say unto you, they have their reward.

 3 But when thou doest alms let not thy left hand know what thy right hand doeth;

 4 That thine alms may be in secret; and thy Father who seeth in secret, himself shall reward thee openly.

 5 And when thou prayest thou shalt not do as thehypocrites, for they love to pray, standing in the synagogues and in the corners of the streets, that they may be seen of men. Verily I say unto you, they have their reward.

 6 But thou, when thou prayest, enter into thy closet, and when thou hast shut thy door, pray to thy Father who is in secret; and thy Father, who seeth in secret, shall reward thee openly.

 7 But when ye pray, use not vain repetitions, as theheathen, for they think that they shall be heard for their much speaking.

 8 Be not ye therefore like unto them, for your Fatherknoweth what things ye have need of before ye ask him.

 9 After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name.

 10 Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven.

 11 And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.

 12 And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.

 13 For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, forever. Amen.

 14 For, if ye forgive men their trespasses your heavenly Father will also forgive you;

 15 But if ye forgive not men their trespasses neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.

16 Moreover, when ye fast be not as the hypocrites, of a sad countenance, for they disfigure their faces that they may appear unto men to fast. Verily I say unto you, they have their reward.

 17 But thou, when thou fastest, anoint thy head, and washthy face;

 18 That thou appear not unto men to fast, but unto thy Father, who is in secret; and thy Father, who seeth in secret, shall reward thee openly.

 19 Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, wheremoth and rust doth corrupt, and thieves break through and steal;

 20 But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal.

 21 For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.

22 The light of the body is the eye; if, therefore, thine eye be single, thy whole body shall be full of light.

 23 But if thine eye be evil, thy whole body shall be full of darkness. If, therefore, the light that is in thee be darkness, how great is that darkness!

 24 No man can serve two masters; for either he will hate the one and love the other, or else he will hold to the one and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and Mammon.

 25 And now it came to pass that when Jesus had spoken these words he looked upon the twelve whom he had chosen, and said unto them: Remember the words which I have spoken. For behold, ye are they whom I have chosen to minister unto this people. Therefore I say unto you, takeno thought for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on. Is not the life more than meat, and the body than raiment?

 26 Behold the fowls of the air, for they sow not, neither do they reap nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are ye not much better than they?

 27 Which of you by taking thought can add one cubit unto his stature?

 28 And why take ye thought for raiment? Consider thelilies of the field how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin;

 29 And yet I say unto you, that even Solomon, in all his glory, was not arrayed like one of these.

 30 Wherefore, if God so clothe the grass of the field, which today is, and tomorrow is cast into the oven, even so will he clothe you, if ye are not of little faith.

 31 Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed?

 32 For your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things.

 33 But seek ye first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things shall be added unto you.

 34 Take therefore no thought for the morrow, for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself.Sufficient is the day unto the evil thereof.

Third NephiThe Book of Nephithe Son of Nephi, Who Was the Son of Helaman

Chapter 14

Jesus commands: Judge not; ask of God; beware of false prophets—He promises salvation to those who do the will of the Father—Compare Matthew 7. About A.D. 34.

 1 And now it came to pass that when Jesus had spoken these words he turned again to the multitude, and did open his mouth unto them again, saying: Verily, verily, I say unto you, Judge not, that ye be not judged.

 2 For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged; and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again.

 3 And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother’s eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye?

4 Or how wilt thou say to thy brother: Let me pull the mote out of thine eye—and behold, a beam is in thine own eye?

 5 Thou hypocrite, first cast the beam out of thine own eye; and then shalt thou see clearly to cast the mote out of thy brother’s eye.

 6 Give not that which is holy unto the dogs, neither cast ye your pearls before swine, lest they trample them under their feet, and turn again and rend you.

 7 Ask, and it shall be given unto you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you.

 8 For every one that asketh, receiveth; and he that seeketh, findeth; and to him that knocketh, it shall be opened.

 9 Or what man is there of you, who, if his son ask bread, will give him a stone?

 10 Or if he ask a fish, will he give him a serpent?

 11 If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children, how much more shall your Father who is in heaven give good things to them that ask him?

 12 Therefore, all things whatsoever ye would that men should do to you, do ye even so to them, for this is the law and the prophets.

 13 Enter ye in at the strait gate; for wide is the gate, andbroad is the way, which leadeth to destruction, and many there be who go in thereat;

14 Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.

 15 Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.

 16 Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles?

17 Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit.

 18 A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit.

 19 Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire.

 20 Wherefore, by their fruits ye shall know them.

 21 Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shallenter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father who is in heaven.

 22 Many will say to me in that day: Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name, and in thy name have cast out devils, and in thy name done many wonderful works?

 23 And then will I profess unto them: I never knew you;depart from me, ye that work iniquity.

 24 Therefore, whoso heareth these sayings of mine and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, who built his house upon a rock—

 25 And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not, for it was founded upon a rock.

 26 And every one that heareth these sayings of mine and doeth them not shall be likened unto a foolish man, who built his house upon the sand—

 27 And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell, and great was the fall of it.

Third NephiThe Book of Nephithe Son of Nephi, Who Was the Son of Helaman

Chapter 15

Jesus announces that the law of Moses is fulfilled in Him—The Nephites are the other sheep of whom He spoke in Jerusalem—Because of iniquity, the Lord’s people in Jerusalem do not know of the scattered sheep of Israel. About A.D. 34.

 1 And now it came to pass that when Jesus had ended these sayings he cast his eyes round about on the multitude, and said unto them: Behold, ye have heard the things which I taught before I ascended to my Father; therefore, whoso remembereth these sayings of mine anddoeth them, him will I raise up at the last day.

 2 And it came to pass that when Jesus had said these words he perceived that there were some among them who marveled, and wondered what he would concerning the law of Moses; for they understood not the saying thatold things had passed away, and that all things had become new.

 3 And he said unto them: Marvel not that I said unto you that old things had passed away, and that all things had become new.

 4 Behold, I say unto you that the law is fulfilled that was given unto Moses.

 5 Behold, I am he that gave the law, and I am he who covenanted with my people Israel; therefore, the law in me is fulfilled, for I have come to fulfil the law; therefore it hath an end.

 6 Behold, I do not destroy the prophets, for as many as have not been fulfilled in me, verily I say unto you, shall all be fulfilled.

 7 And because I said unto you that old things have passed away, I do not destroy that which hath been spoken concerning things which are to come.

 8 For behold, the covenant which I have made with my people is not all fulfilled; but the law which was given unto Moses hath an end in me.

 9 Behold, I am the law, and the light. Look unto me, and endure to the end, and ye shall live; for unto him thatendureth to the end will I give eternal life.

 10 Behold, I have given unto you the commandments; therefore keep my commandments. And this is the law and the prophets, for they truly testified of me.

 11 And now it came to pass that when Jesus had spoken these words, he said unto those twelve whom he had chosen:

 12 Ye are my disciples; and ye are a light unto this people, who are a remnant of the house of Joseph.

 13 And behold, this is the land of your inheritance; and the Father hath given it unto you.

 14 And not at any time hath the Father given me commandment that I should tell it unto your brethren at Jerusalem.

 15 Neither at any time hath the Father given me commandment that I should tell unto them concerning theother tribes of the house of Israel, whom the Father hath led away out of the land.

 16 This much did the Father command me, that I should tell unto them:

 17 That other sheep I have which are not of this fold; them also I must bring, and they shall hear my voice; and there shall be one fold, and one shepherd.

 18 And now, because of stiffneckedness and unbelief theyunderstood not my word; therefore I was commanded to say no more of the Father concerning this thing unto them.

 19 But, verily, I say unto you that the Father hath commanded me, and I tell it unto you, that ye wereseparated from among them because of their iniquity; therefore it is because of their iniquity that they know not of you.

 20 And verily, I say unto you again that the other tribes hath the Father separated from them; and it is because of their iniquity that they know not of them.

 21 And verily I say unto you, that ye are they of whom I said: Other sheep I have which are not of this fold; them also I must bring, and they shall hear my voice; and there shall be one fold, and one shepherd.

 22 And they understood me not, for they supposed it had been the Gentiles; for they understood not that the Gentiles should be converted through their preaching.

 23 And they understood me not that I said they shall hear my voice; and they understood me not that the Gentilesshould not at any time hear my voice—that I should not manifest myself unto them save it were by the Holy Ghost.

 24 But behold, ye have both heard my voice, and seen me; and ye are my sheep, and ye are numbered among those whom the Father hath given me.

Third NephiThe Book of Nephithe Son of Nephi, Who Was the Son of Helaman

Chapter 16

Jesus will visit others of the lost sheep of Israel—In the latter days the gospel will go to the Gentiles and then to the house of Israel—The Lord’s people will see eye to eye when He brings again Zion. About A.D. 34.

 1 And verily, verily, I say unto you that I have other sheep, which are not of this land, neither of the land of Jerusalem, neither in any parts of that land round about whither I have been to minister.

 2 For they of whom I speak are they who have not as yet heard my voice; neither have I at any time manifested myself unto them.

 3 But I have received a commandment of the Father that I shall go unto them, and that they shall hear my voice, and shall be numbered among my sheep, that there may be one fold and one shepherd; therefore I go to show myself unto them.

4 And I command you that ye shall write these sayings after I am gone, that if it so be that my people at Jerusalem, they who have seen me and been with me in my ministry, do not ask the Father in my name, that they may receive a knowledge of you by the Holy Ghost, and also of the other tribes whom they know not of, that these sayings which ye shall write shall be kept and shall be manifested unto theGentiles, that through the fulness of the Gentiles, the remnant of their seed, who shall be scattered forth upon the face of the earth because of their unbelief, may be brought in, or may be brought to a knowledge of me, their Redeemer.

 5 And then will I gather them in from the four quarters of the earth; and then will I fulfil the covenant which the Father hath made unto all the people of the house of Israel.

 6 And blessed are the Gentiles, because of their belief in me, in and of the Holy Ghost, which witnesses unto them of me and of the Father.

 7 Behold, because of their belief in me, saith the Father, and because of the unbelief of you, O house of Israel, in the latter day shall the truth come unto the Gentiles, that the fulness of these things shall be made known unto them.

 8 But wo, saith the Father, unto the unbelieving of the Gentiles—for notwithstanding they have come forth upon the face of this land, and have scattered my people who are of the house of Israel; and my people who are of the house of Israel have been cast out from among them, and have been trodden under feet by them;

 9 And because of the mercies of the Father unto the Gentiles, and also the judgments of the Father upon my people who are of the house of Israel, verily, verily, I say unto you, that after all this, and I have caused my people who are of the house of Israel to be smitten, and to be afflicted, and to be slain, and to be cast out from among them, and to become hated by them, and to become a hiss and a byword among them—

 10 And thus commandeth the Father that I should say unto you: At that day when the Gentiles shall sin against my gospel, and shall reject the fulness of my gospel, and shall be lifted up in the pride of their hearts above all nations, and above all the people of the whole earth, and shall be filled with all manner of lyings, and of deceits, and of mischiefs, and all manner of hypocrisy, and murders, and priestcrafts, and whoredoms, and of secret abominations; and if they shall do all those things, and shall reject the fulness of my gospel, behold, saith the Father, I will bring the fulness of my gospel from among them.

 11 And then will I remember my covenant which I have made unto my people, O house of Israel, and I will bring my gospel unto them.

 12 And I will show unto thee, O house of Israel, that the Gentiles shall not have power over you; but I will remember my covenant unto you, O house of Israel, and ye shall come unto the knowledge of the fulness of my gospel.

 13 But if the Gentiles will repent and return unto me, saith the Father, behold they shall be numbered among my people, O house of Israel.

 14 And I will not suffer my people, who are of the house of Israel, to go through among them, and tread them down, saith the Father.

 15 But if they will not turn unto me, and hearken unto my voice, I will suffer them, yea, I will suffer my people, O house of Israel, that they shall go through among them, and shall tread them down, and they shall be as salt that hath lost its savor, which is thenceforth good for nothing but to be cast out, and to be trodden under foot of my people, O house of Israel.

 16 Verily, verily, I say unto you, thus hath the Father commanded me—that I should give unto this people this land for their inheritance.

 17 And then the words of the prophet Isaiah shall be fulfilled, which say:

 18 Thy watchmen shall lift up the voice; with the voice together shall they sing, for they shall see eye to eye when the Lord shall bring again Zion.

19 Break forth into joy, sing together, ye waste places of Jerusalem; for the Lord hath comforted his people, he hath redeemed Jerusalem.

 20 The Lord hath made bare his holy arm in the eyes of all the nations; and all the ends of the earth shall see the salvation of God.

Third NephiThe Book of Nephithe Son of Nephi, Who Was the Son of Helaman

Chapter 17

Jesus directs the people to ponder His words and pray for understanding—He heals their sick—He prays for the people, using language that cannot be written—Angels minister to and fire encircles their little ones. About A.D. 34.

 

 1 Behold, now it came to pass that when Jesus had spoken these words he looked round about again on the multitude, and he said unto them: Behold, my time is at hand.

 2 I perceive that ye are weak, that ye cannot understandall my words which I am commanded of the Father to speak unto you at this time.

 3 Therefore, go ye unto your homes, and ponder upon the things which I have said, and ask of the Father, in my name, that ye may understand, and prepare your minds for the morrow, and I come unto you again.

 4 But now I go unto the Father, and also to show myself unto the lost tribes of Israel, for they are not lost unto the Father, for he knoweth whither he hath taken them.

 5 And it came to pass that when Jesus had thus spoken, he cast his eyes round about again on the multitude, and beheld they were in tears, and did look steadfastly upon him as if they would ask him to tarry a little longer with them.

 6 And he said unto them: Behold, my bowels are filled with compassion towards you.

 7 Have ye any that are sick among you? Bring them hither. Have ye any that are lame, or blind, or halt, or maimed, or leprous, or that are withered, or that are deaf, or that are afflicted in any manner? Bring them hither and I will heal them, for I have compassion upon you; my bowels are filled with mercy.

 8 For I perceive that ye desire that I should show unto you what I have done unto your brethren at Jerusalem, for I see that your faith is sufficient that I should heal you.

9 And it came to pass that when he had thus spoken, all the multitude, with one accord, did go forth with their sick and their afflicted, and their lame, and with their blind, and with their dumb, and with all them that were afflicted in any manner; and he did heal them every one as they were brought forth unto him.

 10 And they did all, both they who had been healed and they who were whole, bow down at his feet, and did worship him; and as many as could come for the multitude did kiss his feet, insomuch that they did bathe his feet with their tears.

 11 And it came to pass that he commanded that their little children should be brought.

 12 So they brought their little children and set them down upon the ground round about him, and Jesus stood in the midst; and the multitude gave way till they had all been brought unto him.

13 And it came to pass that when they had all been brought, and Jesus stood in the midst, he commanded the multitude that they should kneel down upon the ground.

 14 And it came to pass that when they had knelt upon the ground, Jesus groaned within himself, and said: Father, I am troubled because of the wickedness of the people of the house of Israel.

 15 And when he had said these words, he himself alsoknelt upon the earth; and behold he prayed unto the Father, and the things which he prayed cannot be written, and the multitude did bear record who heard him.

 16 And after this manner do they bear record: The eyehath never seen, neither hath the ear heard, before, so great and marvelous things as we saw and heard Jesus speak unto the Father;

 17 And no tongue can speak, neither can there be written by any man, neither can the hearts of men conceive so great and marvelous things as we both saw and heard Jesus speak; and no one can conceive of the joy which filled our souls at the time we heard him pray for us unto the Father.

 18 And it came to pass that when Jesus had made an end of praying unto the Father, he arose; but so great was thejoy of the multitude that they were overcome.

 19 And it came to pass that Jesus spake unto them, and bade them arise.

 20 And they arose from the earth, and he said unto them: Blessed are ye because of your faith. And now behold, my joy is full.

 21 And when he had said these words, he wept, and the multitude bare record of it, and he took their little children, one by one, and blessed them, and prayed unto the Father for them.

 22 And when he had done this he wept again;

 23 And he spake unto the multitude, and said unto them: Behold your little ones.

 24 And as they looked to behold they cast their eyes towards heaven, and they saw the heavens open, and they saw angels descending out of heaven as it were in the midst of fire; and they came down and encircled those little ones about, and they were encircled about with fire; and the angels did minister unto them.

 25 And the multitude did see and hear and bear record; and they know that their record is true for they all of them did see and hear, every man for himself; and they were in number about two thousand and five hundred souls; and they did consist of men, women, and children.

 

Third NephiThe Book of Nephithe Son of Nephi, Who Was the Son of Helaman

Chapter 18

Jesus institutes the sacrament among the Nephites—They are commanded to pray always in His name—Those who eat His flesh and drink His blood unworthily are damned—The disciples are given power to confer the Holy Ghost. About A.D. 34.

 1 And it came to pass that Jesus commanded his disciples that they should bring forth some bread and wine unto him.

 2 And while they were gone for bread and wine, he commanded the multitude that they should sit themselves down upon the earth.

 3 And when the disciples had come with bread and wine, he took of the bread and brake and blessed it; and he gave unto the disciples and commanded that they should eat.

 4 And when they had eaten and were filled, he commanded that they should give unto the multitude.

 5 And when the multitude had eaten and were filled, he said unto the disciples: Behold there shall one be ordainedamong you, and to him will I give power that he shallbreak bread and bless it and give it unto the people of mychurch, unto all those who shall believe and be baptized in my name.

 6 And this shall ye always observe to do, even as I have done, even as I have broken bread and blessed it and given it unto you.

 7 And this shall ye do in remembrance of my body, which I have shown unto you. And it shall be a testimony unto the Father that ye do always remember me. And if ye do always remember me ye shall have my Spirit to be with you.

 8 And it came to pass that when he said these words, he commanded his disciples that they should take of the wineof the cup and drink of it, and that they should also give unto the multitude that they might drink of it.

 9 And it came to pass that they did so, and did drink of it and were filled; and they gave unto the multitude, and they did drink, and they were filled.

 10 And when the disciples had done this, Jesus said unto them: Blessed are ye for this thing which ye have done, for this is fulfilling my commandments, and this doth witness unto the Father that ye are willing to do that which I have commanded you.

 11 And this shall ye always do to those who repent and are baptized in my name; and ye shall do it inremembrance of my blood, which I have shed for you, that ye may witness unto the Father that ye do always remember me. And if ye do always remember me ye shall have my Spirit to be with you.

 12 And I give unto you a commandment that ye shall do these things. And if ye shall always do these things blessed are ye, for ye are built upon my rock.

 13 But whoso among you shall do more or less than these are not built upon my rock, but are built upon a sandy foundation; and when the rain descends, and the floods come, and the winds blow, and beat upon them, they shallfall, and the gates of hell are ready open to receive them.

14 Therefore blessed are ye if ye shall keep my commandments, which the Father hath commanded me that I should give unto you.

 15 Verily, verily, I say unto you, ye must watch and prayalways, lest ye be tempted by the devil, and ye be led away captive by him.

 16 And as I have prayed among you even so shall ye pray in my church, among my people who do repent and are baptized in my name. Behold I am the light; I have set anexample for you.

 17 And it came to pass that when Jesus had spoken these words unto his disciples, he turned again unto the multitude and said unto them:

 18 Behold, verily, verily, I say unto you, ye must watch and pray always lest ye enter into temptation; for Satandesireth to have you, that he may sift you as wheat.

 19 Therefore ye must always pray unto the Father in my name;

 20 And whatsoever ye shall ask the Father in my name, which is right, believing that ye shall receive, behold it shall be given unto you.

 21 Pray in your families unto the Father, always in my name, that your wives and your children may be blessed.

 22 And behold, ye shall meet together oft; and ye shall not forbid any man from coming unto you when ye shall meet together, but suffer them that they may come unto you and forbid them not;

23 But ye shall pray for them, and shall not cast them out; and if it so be that they come unto you oft ye shall pray for them unto the Father, in my name.

 24 Therefore, hold up your light that it may shine unto the world. Behold I am the light which ye shall hold up—that which ye have seen me do. Behold ye see that I have prayed unto the Father, and ye all have witnessed.

 25 And ye see that I have commanded that none of you should go away, but rather have commanded that ye should come unto me, that ye might feel and see; even so shall ye do unto the world; and whosoever breaketh this commandment suffereth himself to be led into temptation.

 26 And now it came to pass that when Jesus had spoken these words, he turned his eyes again upon the discipleswhom he had chosen, and said unto them:

 27 Behold verily, verily, I say unto you, I give unto you another commandment, and then I must go unto myFather that I may fulfil other commandments which he hath given me.

 28 And now behold, this is the commandment which I give unto you, that ye shall not suffer any one knowingly to partake of my flesh and blood unworthily, when ye shall minister it;

 29 For whoso eateth and drinketh my flesh and bloodunworthily eateth and drinketh damnation to his soul; therefore if ye know that a man is unworthy to eat and drink of my flesh and blood ye shall forbid him.

 30 Nevertheless, ye shall not cast him out from among you, but ye shall minister unto him and shall pray for him unto the Father, in my name; and if it so be that he repenteth and is baptized in my name, then shall ye receive him, and shall minister unto him of my flesh and blood.

 31 But if he repent not he shall not be numbered among my people, that he may not destroy my people, for behold I know my sheep, and they are numbered.

 32 Nevertheless, ye shall not cast him out of yoursynagogues, or your places of worship, for unto such shall ye continue to minister; for ye know not but what they will return and repent, and come unto me with full purpose of heart, and I shall heal them; and ye shall be the means of bringing salvation unto them.

 33 Therefore, keep these sayings which I have commanded you that ye come not under condemnation; for wo unto him whom the Father condemneth.

34 And I give you these commandments because of the disputations which have been among you. And blessed are ye if ye have no disputations among you.

 35 And now I go unto the Father, because it is expedient that I should go unto the Father for your sakes.

 36 And it came to pass that when Jesus had made an end of these sayings, he touched with his hand the discipleswhom he had chosen, one by one, even until he had touched them all, and spake unto them as he touched them.

 37 And the multitude heard not the words which he spake, therefore they did not bear record; but the disciples bare record that he gave them power to give the Holy Ghost. And I will show unto you hereafter that this record is true.

 38 And it came to pass that when Jesus had touched them all, there came a cloud and overshadowed the multitude that they could not see Jesus.

 39 And while they were overshadowed he departed from them, and ascended into heaven. And the disciples saw and did bear record that he ascended again into heaven.

Third NephiThe Book of Nephithe Son of Nephi, Who Was the Son of Helaman

Chapter 19

The twelve disciples minister unto the people and pray for the Holy Ghost—The disciples are baptized and receive the Holy Ghost and the ministering of angels—Jesus prays using words that cannot be written—He attests to the exceedingly great faith of these Nephites. About A.D. 34.

 

 1 And now it came to pass that when Jesus had ascended into heaven, the multitude did disperse, and every man did take his wife and his children and did return to his own home.

 2 And it was noised abroad among the people immediately, before it was yet dark, that the multitude had seen Jesus, and that he had ministered unto them, and that he would also show himself on the morrow unto the multitude.

 3 Yea, and even all the night it was noised abroad concerning Jesus; and insomuch did they send forth unto the people that there were many, yea, an exceedingly great number, did labor exceedingly all that night, that they might be on the morrow in the place where Jesus should show himself unto the multitude.

 4 And it came to pass that on the morrow, when the multitude was gathered together, behold, Nephi and his brother whom he had raised from the dead, whose name was Timothy*, and also his son, whose name was Jonas, and also Mathoni*, and Mathonihah*, his brother, and Kumen, and Kumenonhi, and Jeremiah, and Shemnon, and Jonas, and Zedekiah, and Isaiah—now these were thenames of the disciples whom Jesus had chosen—and it came to pass that they went forth and stood in the midst of the multitude.

* “Three Nephites”  Permitted to live and serve until Christ Jesus Returns.

In Mormonism the Three Nephites (also known as the Three Nephite Disciples) are three Nephite disciples of Jesus described in the Book of Mormon who were blessed by Jesus to “never taste of death; but ye shall live to behold all the doings of the Father unto the children of men, even until all things shall be fulfilled …

 

 5 And behold, the multitude was so great that they did cause that they should be separated into twelve bodies.

 6 And the twelve did teach the multitude; and behold, they did cause that the multitude should kneel down upon the face of the earth, and should pray unto the Father in the name of Jesus.

 7 And the disciples did pray unto the Father also in the name of Jesus. And it came to pass that they arose and ministered unto the people.

 8 And when they had ministered those same words which Jesus had spoken—nothing varying from the words which Jesus had spoken—behold, they knelt again and prayed to the Father in the name of Jesus.

 9 And they did pray for that which they most desired; and they desired that the Holy Ghost should be given unto them.

 10 And when they had thus prayed they went down unto the water’s edge, and the multitude followed them.

 11 And it came to pass that Nephi went down into the water and was baptized.

 12 And he came up out of the water and began to baptize. And he baptized all those whom Jesus had chosen.

 13 And it came to pass when they were all baptized and had come up out of the water, the Holy Ghost did fall upon them, and they were filled with the Holy Ghost and with fire.

 14 And behold, they were encircled about as if it were by fire; and it came down from heaven, and the multitude did witness it, and did bear record; and angels did come down out of heaven and did minister unto them.

 15 And it came to pass that while the angels were ministering unto the disciples, behold, Jesus came and stood in the midst and ministered unto them.

 16 And it came to pass that he spake unto the multitude, and commanded them that they should kneel down again upon the earth, and also that his disciples should kneel down upon the earth.

 17 And it came to pass that when they had all knelt down upon the earth, he commanded his disciples that they should pray.

 18 And behold, they began to pray; and they did pray unto Jesus, calling him their Lord and their God.

 19 And it came to pass that Jesus departed out of the midst of them, and went a little way off from them andbowed himself to the earth, and he said:

 20 Father, I thank thee that thou hast given the Holy Ghost unto these whom I have chosen; and it is because of their belief in me that I have chosen them out of the world.

 21 Father, I pray thee that thou wilt give the Holy Ghost unto all them that shall believe in their words.

 22 Father, thou hast given them the Holy Ghost because they believe in me; and thou seest that they believe in me because thou hearest them, and they pray unto me; and they pray unto me because I am with them.

 23 And now Father, I pray unto thee for them, and also for all those who shall believe on their words, that they may believe in me, that I may be in them as thou, Father, art in me, that we may be one.

 24 And it came to pass that when Jesus had thus prayed unto the Father, he came unto his disciples, and behold, they did still continue, without ceasing, to pray unto him; and they did not multiply many words, for it was given unto them what they should pray, and they were filled with desire.

 25 And it came to pass that Jesus blessed them as they did pray unto him; and his countenance did smile upon them, and the light of his countenance did shine upon them, and behold they were as white as the countenance and also the garments of Jesus; and behold the whiteness thereof did exceed all the whiteness, yea, even there could be nothing upon earth so white as the whiteness thereof.

 26 And Jesus said unto them: Pray on; nevertheless they did not cease to pray.

 27 And he turned from them again, and went a little way off and bowed himself to the earth; and he prayed again unto the Father, saying:

 28 Father, I thank thee that thou hast purified those whom I have chosen, because of their faith, and I pray for them, and also for them who shall believe on their words, that they may be purified in me, through faith on their words, even as they are purified in me.

 29 Father, I pray not for the world, but for those whom thou hast given me out of the world, because of their faith, that they may be purified in me, that I may be in them as thou, Father, art in me, that we may be one, that I may be glorified in them.

 30 And when Jesus had spoken these words he came again unto his disciples; and behold they did pray steadfastly, without ceasing, unto him; and he did smile upon them again; and behold they were white, even as Jesus.

 31 And it came to pass that he went again a little way off and prayed unto the Father;

 32 And tongue cannot speak the words which he prayed, neither can be written by man the words which he prayed.

 33 And the multitude did hear and do bear record; and their hearts were open and they did understand in their hearts the words which he prayed.

 34 Nevertheless, so great and marvelous were the words which he prayed that they cannot be written, neither can they be uttered by man.

 35 And it came to pass that when Jesus had made an end of praying he came again to the disciples, and said unto them: So great faith have I never seen among all the Jews; wherefore I could not show unto them so great miracles, because of their unbelief.

 36 Verily I say unto you, there are none of them that have seen so great things as ye have seen; neither have they heard so great things as ye have heard.

Third NephiThe Book of Nephithe Son of Nephi, Who Was the Son of Helaman

Chapter 20

Jesus provides bread and wine miraculously and again administers the sacrament unto the people—The remnant of Jacob will come to the knowledge of the Lord their God and will inherit the Americas—Jesus is the prophet like unto Moses, and the Nephites are children of the prophets—Others of the Lord’s people will be gathered to Jerusalem. About A.D. 34.

 1 And it came to pass that he commanded the multitude that they should cease to pray, and also his disciples. And he commanded them that they should not cease to pray in their hearts.

 2 And he commanded them that they should arise and stand up upon their feet. And they arose up and stood upon their feet.

 3 And it came to pass that he brake bread again and blessed it, and gave to the disciples to eat.

 4 And when they had eaten he commanded them that they should break bread, and give unto the multitude.

 5 And when they had given unto the multitude he also gave them wine to drink, and commanded them that they should give unto the multitude.

 6 Now, there had been no bread, neither wine, brought by the disciples, neither by the multitude;

 7 But he truly gave unto them bread to eat, and also wine to drink.

 8 And he said unto them: He that eateth this bread eateth of my body to his soul; and he that drinketh of this wine drinketh of my blood to his soul; and his soul shall never hunger nor thirst, but shall be filled.

 9 Now, when the multitude had all eaten and drunk, behold, they were filled with the Spirit; and they did cry out with one voice, and gave glory to Jesus, whom they both saw and heard.

 10 And it came to pass that when they had all given glory unto Jesus, he said unto them: Behold now I finish the commandment which the Father hath commanded me concerning this people, who are a remnant of the house of Israel.

 11 Ye remember that I spake unto you, and said that when the words of Isaiah should be fulfilled—behold they are written, ye have them before you, therefore search them—

 12 And verily, verily, I say unto you, that when they shall be fulfilled then is the fulfilling of the covenant which the Father hath made unto his people, O house of Israel.

 13 And then shall the remnants, which shall be scatteredabroad upon the face of the earth, be gathered in from the east and from the west, and from the south and from the north; and they shall be brought to the knowledge of the Lord their God, who hath redeemed them.

 14 And the Father hath commanded me that I should give unto you this land, for your inheritance.

 15 And I say unto you, that if the Gentiles do not repentafter the blessing which they shall receive, after they have scattered my people—

 16 Then shall ye, who are a remnant of the house of Jacob, go forth among them; and ye shall be in the midst of them who shall be many; and ye shall be among them as a lion among the beasts of the forest, and as a young lion among the flocks of sheep, who, if he goeth through both treadethdown and teareth in pieces, and none can deliver.

 17 Thy hand shall be lifted up upon thine adversaries, and all thine enemies shall be cut off.

 18 And I will gather my people together as a man gathereth his sheaves into the floor.

 19 For I will make my people with whom the Father hath covenanted, yea, I will make thy horn iron, and I will make thy hoofs brass. And thou shalt beat in pieces many people; and I will consecrate their gain unto the Lord, and their substance unto the Lord of the whole earth. And behold, I am he who doeth it.

 20 And it shall come to pass, saith the Father, that thesword of my justice shall hang over them at that day; and except they repent it shall fall upon them, saith the Father, yea, even upon all the nations of the Gentiles.

 21 And it shall come to pass that I will establish mypeople, O house of Israel.

 22 And behold, this people will I establish in this land, unto the fulfilling of the covenant which I made with your father Jacob; and it shall be a New Jerusalem. And thepowers of heaven shall be in the midst of this people; yea, even I will be in the midst of you.

 23 Behold, I am he of whom Moses spake, saying: A prophet shall the Lord your God raise up unto you of your brethren, like unto me; him shall ye hear in all things whatsoever he shall say unto you. And it shall come to pass that every soul who will not hear that prophet shall be cut off from among the people.

 24 Verily I say unto you, yea, and all the prophets from Samuel and those that follow after, as many as have spoken, have testified of me.

 25 And behold, ye are the children of the prophets; and ye are of the house of Israel; and ye are of the covenant which the Father made with your fathers, saying unto Abraham: And in thy seed shall all the kindreds of the earth be blessed.

 26 The Father having raised me up unto you first, and sent me to bless you in turning away every one of you from his iniquities; and this because ye are the children of the covenant—

 27 And after that ye were blessed then fulfilleth the Father the covenant which he made with Abraham, saying: In thy seed shall all the kindreds of the earth be blessed—unto the pouring out of the Holy Ghost through me upon the Gentiles, which blessing upon the Gentiles shall make them mighty above all, unto the scattering of my people, O house of Israel.

 28 And they shall be a scourge unto the people of this land. Nevertheless, when they shall have received the fulness of my gospel, then if they shall harden their hearts against me I will return their iniquities upon their own heads, saith the Father.

 29 And I will remember the covenant which I have made with my people; and I have covenanted with them that I would gather them together in mine own due time, that I would give unto them again the land of their fathers for their inheritance, which is the land of Jerusalem, which is the promised land unto them forever, saith the Father.

 30 And it shall come to pass that the time cometh, when the fulness of my gospel shall be preached unto them;

 31 And they shall believe in me, that I am Jesus Christ, the Son of God, and shall pray unto the Father in my name.

 32 Then shall their watchmen lift up their voice, and with the voice together shall they sing; for they shall see eye to eye.

 33 Then will the Father gather them together again, and give unto them Jerusalem for the land of their inheritance.

 34 Then shall they break forth into joy—Sing together, ye waste places of Jerusalem; for the Father hath comforted his people, he hath redeemed Jerusalem.

 35 The Father hath made bare his holy arm in the eyes of all the nations; and all the ends of the earth shall see the salvation of the Father; and the Father and I are one.

 36 And then shall be brought to pass that which is written:Awake, awake again, and put on thy strength, O Zion; put on thy beautiful garments, O Jerusalem, the holy city, for henceforth there shall no more come into thee the uncircumcised and the unclean.

 37 Shake thyself from the dust; arise, sit down, O Jerusalem; loose thyself from the bands of thy neck, O captive daughter of Zion.

 38 For thus saith the Lord: Ye have sold yourselves for naught, and ye shall be redeemed without money.

 39 Verily, verily, I say unto you, that my people shall know my name; yea, in that day they shall know that I am he that doth speak.

 40 And then shall they say: How beautiful upon the mountains are the feet of him that bringeth good tidings unto them, that publisheth peace; that bringeth good tidings unto them of good, that publisheth salvation; that saith unto Zion: Thy God reigneth!

 41 And then shall a cry go forth: Depart ye, depart ye, go ye out from thence, touch not that which is unclean; go ye out of the midst of her; be ye clean that bear the vessels of the Lord.

 42 For ye shall not go out with haste nor go by flight; for the Lord will go before you, and the God of Israel shall be your rearward.

 43 Behold, my servant shall deal prudently; he shall be exalted and extolled and be very high.

 44 As many were astonished at thee—his visage was so marred, more than any man, and his form more than the sons of men—

 45 So shall he sprinkle many nations; the kings shall shut their mouths at him, for that which had not been told them shall they see; and that which they had not heard shall they consider.

 46 Verily, verily, I say unto you, all these things shall surely come, even as the Father hath commanded me. Then shall this covenant which the Father hath covenanted with his people be fulfilled; and then shall Jerusalem be inhabited again with my people, and it shall be the land of their inheritance.

Make Money With SFI – Part 3

Dream Big  Aim High With SF

 From  SFI  Forum: https://www.sfimg.com/forum/thread?id=42500
=============

Gold Fast-Track

A long time ago, in 1972, when I was 15 years old, I got my first taste of direct sales marketing. I saw an ad in the newspaper on how to make money selling How To books. Only being 15, I didn’t have much money, but I did have a part time job, and so I sent away for the book. What I got was a book that basically said, go to the library, research information on how to do something that other people might want to know about, like car mechanics, and use that research to write the book. Then you would have to advertise in the classified section of papers wherever you could afford to.  Well, I didn’t follow the advice at the time, because I was just too young to understand what it really meant. And I really didn’t have the money to advertise. However, the point was made to find something you would be interested in and write about it. Today, you can do that so much easier, using blogs. You don’t have to pay anything to print a book, with hundreds of copies. Just post your blog. At least that is a way you can get started.  All of us have something in our lives that we are very interested in; something that we are probably very good at, and enjoy working at. Like cooking, or playing a musical instrument, or maybe a car enthusiast, or maybe you do knitting!

Doesn’t matter what it is because more than likely, other people are interested too. And maybe you have information, tips or tricks to help people do something better, or enjoy that activity even more. These days, that is the point of a blog. Write about something that excites you, that gets your blood moving, and keeps you interested in doing it.

If you have that passion, you can share it and help other people. And, then you can advertise a few products from time to time on a blog that relate to your hobby. In today’s world, that is called finding your niche…and we all have one, or two, or maybe three.

Now it does take time to build an audience; but the best time to start is now. I would suggest if you don’t already know what you might like to blog about, take a few days to figure it out. What do you really like to do? What are your interests? What are some fun things in your life that truly interest you.

Once you find that out, and start writing a few things down about it, you can then start to find some products you can advertise with your blog.

There is no sense trying to sell something you are not really passionate about. If you don’t care, why would potential customers care, and buy? They won’t. They will just move on to something else.

Now, for those of you who will say I can’t write good enough, or whatever, I would say this: Practice with short paragraphs about something. And it really doesn’t have to be perfect. It just has to be sincere, and truthful, and hopefully, interesting. Start off with a problem that some people might have with whatever you write about, and then provide a solution. Draw upon your experience, or better yet, google your idea and see if anyone has posted questions somewhere on the internet, and then you can answer them. Become a problem solver on your blog; people are always looking for answers to problems they have.

And maybe some of the problems people have can be solved by products that you can advertise for sale! Be real, be honest, be truthful, but most of all, be yourself!

Remember, you are already an expert salesperson; you do it every day. Become a problem solver, and you now have the basis for an interesting blogging site. And if you really hate blogging, a video blog site might work better. More about that on another post.

Part 4 coming soon.

REAL people. REAL opportunity. Join me and start growing a second income today.

From SFI Forum:  https://www.sfimg.com/forum/thread?id=42399&pg=1

So, if you missed part 1, click on the link below.
Make Money With SFI – Part 1Well, if you read part 1, have you been Showing Up For Work? If you want to earn some money here, I sure hope you have.And just how can you earn money here after you start learning the program? In most if not all industries in the world, sales of something is how you generate revenue; and if the revenue is higher than the expenses, you make an income.

But I don’t want to address the mechanics of selling just yet….because a lot of people never even make it that far. Most people just say I can’t sell anything; I am not a salesperson; I don’t like selling, and so on and so on.

Realistically though, we are all natural born salespersons. Don’t believe me? Well, if you like a post on Facebook, your friends will probably see that in their stream. What you have done is recommended that video, or picture, or whatever it is you liked, as something that your friends might be interested in. At the end of the day, the bottom line is, that is selling. Same thing when you tell someone about some clothing you bought, or a movie you saw, or event you went to. You are selling that to those people.(You gotta see this movie – it’s fantastic!)

Now, maybe you don’t get paid for your recommendations, but you are still selling something to them, even if it is for free. If you never shared, or commented, how would people learn about whatever it is you liked? Recommending products to people based on your experience is no different – except maybe you will get a commission from letting them know about it!

Selling a product is simply sharing your experience with it. And if you have long list of friends, maybe, just maybe, someone will be interested.

So, really, we are all salespeople, in our own way. We are selling something every single day, all the time. It might be free, it might cost money, who knows? But we are sharing something, and that ladies and gentlemen is selling.

Therefore, I ask all of you who are truly interested in earning income here, to embrace the fact that you are a salesperson; that you are very effective at it; and that all you really need to learn are the mechanics of how to do it.

This is the welcome message that I have on my leadership page, and it has been there since SFI introduced them.

“Building a business is about building relationships. If you have family or friends that might be interested in joining your team, ask them. You already have a trust built up with them, and people will usually buy products or services from someone they trust!”

The only difference in building your business, is that you need to find more “friends” or customers.

And in part 3, I will start sharing how to find products you can sell, or promote.

Make Money With SFI – Part 1

Make Money With SFI – Part 1

This is a very good post from the Forum
https://www.sfimg.com/forum/thread?id=42339

Make Money With SFI – Part 1

Okay, so there are lots of things to learn when you first sign up with SFI, and I know it can be too much information for a lot of people. But if you are truly interested in building your own home based business, then you have to get excited about this program and what it can do for you.

So, what is the first thing you need to do to start off on the right foot, so to speak, with SFI? And no, it isn’t sell something or recruit someone into the business. And it isn’t reading all the wonderful and amazing training we have here.

I believe the first thing you need to do to be successful here, is Show Up For Work, every single day.

You don’t mean 7 days a week do you? Yes I do. If you can go on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and the dozens of other social media sites and play games, post a tweet, share a picture, or like a post, you can log in to SFI and at the very least, complete your daily tasks. That means turning the red tabs green by reading the information in each section and clicking the appropriate button or link to earn the associated VP (Versa Points) for those tasks.

After all, aren’t you here to start earning money? Well, if you don’t show up for work to learn how the program is set up, how can you ever learn to make money here? It is the most important task of your home business day, because if you can’t or will not do that, you will not earn any money here. Plain and simple.

And if you are not able to log in one day for whatever reason, okay it is not the end of the world, but do not make one day into two, and then stretch to three, and so on. Habits are very easily formed, and most difficult to break. Start a new habit, one that will put you on path to success and financial freedom.

Log in, read and learn. At the very least, maybe 20 minutes a day, if you are really busy with something else. Otherwise stretch it into an hour by reading some forum posts, or reviewing a Launchpad lesson or a Rule of Success.
