Faith in Christ’s Power

Moroni 7:32

By these means, the totality of humanity is empowered to have faith in Christ, receive the Holy Ghost, and further the work of the Father’s covenants.

And by so doing, the Lord God prepareth the way that the residue of men may have faith in Christ, that the Holy Ghost may have place in their hearts, according to the power thereof; and after this manner bringeth to pass the Father, the covenants which he hath made unto the children of men.

Moroni 7:33

Christ declared that faith in him will generate the power to do that which furthers his purposes.

And Christ hath said:

“If ye will have faith in me
ye shall have power to do
whatsoever thing is expedient in me.”

Moroni 7:34

Christ also issued a universal command to be saved by repenting, coming unto him, being baptized, and having faith.

And he hath said:

“Repent all ye ends of the earth,
and come unto me, and be baptized in my name,
and have faith in me, that ye may be saved.”

Moroni 7:35

Assuming these things are manifestly true, have miracles ceased?

And now, my beloved brethren, if this be the case that these things are true which I have spoken unto you, and God will show unto you, with power and great glory at the last day, that they are true, and if they are true has the day of miracles ceased?

Moroni 7:36

Angels will continue to appear and the Holy Ghost will not be withheld so long as there are still people to be saved.

Or have angels ceased to appear unto the children of men?
Or has he withheld the power of the Holy Ghost from them?
Or will he, so long as time shall last,
Or the earth shall stand,
Or there shall be one man upon the face thereof to be saved?

Behold I say unto you, Nay;

Moroni 7:37

Faith enables miracles and angelic visits; unbelief disables them.

For it is by faith that miracles are wrought; and it is by faith that angels appear and minister unto men; wherefore, if these things have ceased wo be unto the children of men, for it is because of unbelief, and all is vain.

Moroni 7:38

Salvation is contingent on miracles and angelic visits, and their absence is therefore an alarming signal.

For no man can be saved, according to the words of Christ, save they shall have faith in his name; wherefore, if these things have ceased, then has faith ceased also; and awful is the state of man, for they are as though there had been no redemption made.

Moroni 7:39

Meekness indicates faith in Christ, which is a requirement for being included in the church.

But behold, my beloved brethren, I judge better things of you, for I judge that ye have faith in Christ because of your meekness; for if ye have not faith in him then ye are not fit to be numbered among the people of his church.
