1 Corinthians 12:7-12, But the manifestation of the spirit is given to every man to profit withal. 8, For to one is given the word of wisdom; to another the word of knowledge by the same spirit; 9, to another faith by the same spirit; to another the gifts of healing by the same spirit; 10, To another the working of miracles; to another prophecy; to another discerning of spirits; to another divers kinds of tongues; to another the interpretation of tongues: 11, but all these worketh that one and the selfsame spirit, dividing to every man severally as he will.

Alma 39:6-8, For behold, if ye deny the Holy Ghost when it once has had place in you, and ye know that ye deny it, behold, this is a sin which is unpardonable; yea, and whosoever murdereth against the light and knowledge of God, it is not easy for him to obtain forgiveness; yea, I say unto you, my son, that it is not easy for him to obtain forgiveness. 7, And now, my son, I would to God that ye had not been guilty of so great a crime. I would not dwell upon your crimes, to harrow up your soul, if it were not for your good. 8, But behold, ye cannot hide your crimes from God; and except ye repent they will stand as a testimony against you at the last day.

2 Nephi 26:12-14, And as I spake concerning the convincing of the Jews, that Jesus is the very Christ, it must needs be that the Gentiles be convinced also that Jesus is the Christ, the Eternal God; 13, And that he manifesteth himself unto all those who believe in him, by the power of the Holy Ghost; yea, unto every nation, kindred, tongue, and people, working mighty miracles, signs, and wonders, among the children of men according to their faith. 14, But behold, I prophesy unto you concerning the last days; concerning the days when the Lord God shall bring these things forth unto the children of men.

3 Nephi 29:7, Yea, and wo unto him that shall say at that day, to get gain, that there can be no miracle wrought by Jesus Christ; for he that doeth this shall become like unto the son of perdition, for whom there was no mercy, according to the word of Christ!

2 Nephi 26:29-31, He commanded that there shall be no priestcrafts; for, behold, priestcrafts are that men preach and set themselves up for a light unto the world, that they may get gain and praise of the world; but they seek not the welfare of Zion. 30, Behold, the Lord hath forbidden this thing; wherefore, the Lord God hath given a commandment that all men should have charity, which charity is love.

Alma 1:16-17,24, Nevertheless, this did not put an end to the spreading of priestcraft through the land; for there were many who loved the vain things of the world, and they went forth preaching false doctrines; and this they did for the sake of riches and honor. 17, Nevertheless, they durst not lie, if it were known, for fear of the law, for liars were punished; therefore they pretended to to preach according to their belief; and now the law could have no power on any man for his belief. 24, for the hearts of many were heardened, and their names were blotted out, that they were remembered no more among the people of God…

Here is the patience and the faith of the saints. 11, and I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon. 12, And he exerciseth all the power of the first beast before him, and causeth the earth and them which dwell therein to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed. 13, and he doeth great wonders, so that he maketh fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men, 14, And deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast; saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they shoul dmake an image to the beast, which had the wound by a sword, and did live. 16, And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: 17, And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. 18, Here is wisdom.

2 Nephi 28:19-21, For the kingdom of the devil must shake, and they which belong to it must needs be stirred up unto repentence, or teh devil will grasp them with his everlasting chains, and they be stirred up to anger and perish; 20, for behold, at that day shall he rage in the hearts of the children of men, and stir them up to anger against that which is good. 21, and others he will pacify, and lull them away into carnal security, that they will say: All is well in Zion; yea, Zion prospereth, all is well–and thus the devil cheateth their souls, and leadeth them away carefully down to hell.

2 Nephi 28:22, And behold, others he flattereth away, and telleth them there is no hell; and he saith unto them: I am no devil, for there is none–and thus he whispereth in their ears, until he grasps them with his awful chains, from whence there is no deliverance.

Therefore all things shall be restored to their proper order, every thing to its natural frame–mortality raised to immortality, corruption to incorruption–raised to endless happiness to inherit the kingdom of God or to endless misery to inherit the kingdom of the devil, the one on one hand, the other on the other–5, the one raised to happiness according to his desires of happiness, or good according to his desires of good; and the other to evil according to his desires of evil; for as he has desired to do evil all the day long even so shall he have his reward of evil when the night cometh.

Behold, I say unto you, Nay. But he condemneth you, and if ye persist in these things his judgments must speedily come unto you.

Acts 15:10, Now therefore why tempt ye God, to put a yoke upon the neck of the disciples, which neither our fathers nor we were able to bear?

Galatians 2:4-5,10-11, And that because of false brethren unawares brought in, who came in privily to spy out our liberty which we have in Christ Jesus, that they might bring us into bondage: 5, To whom we gave place by subjection, no, not for an hour; that the truth of the gospel might continue with you. 10, Only they would that we should remember the poor; the same which I also was forward to do. 11, But when Peter was come to Antioch, I withstood him to the face, because he was to be blamed.

Galatians 2:16-21, Knowing that a man is not justified by the works of the law, but by the faith of Jesus Christ, even we have believed in Jesus Christ, and not by the works of the law: for by the works of the law shall no flesh be justified. 17, But if, while we seek to be justified by Christ, we ourselves also are found sinners, is therefore Christ the minister of sin? God forbid. 18, For if I build again the things which I destroyed, I make myself a transgressor. 19, For I through the law am dead to the law, that I might live unto God. 20, I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me. 21, I do not frustrate the grace of God: for if righteousness come by the law, then Christ is dead in vain.

Now, if a man murdereth, behold will our law, which is just, take the life of his brother? I say unto you, Nay. 12, But the law requireth the life of him who hath murdered; therefore there can be nothing which is short of an infinite atonement which will suffice for the sins of the world. 13, Therefore, it is expedient that there should be a great and last sacrifice, and then shall there be, or it is expedient there should be, a stop to the shedding of blood; then shall the law of Moses be fulfilled; yea, it shall be all fulfilled, every jot and tittle, and none shall have passed away.

3 Nephi 15:6-8, 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 made with my people is not all fulfilled; but the law which was given unto Moses hath an end in me.

3 Nephi 9:19-20, 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.

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 which is in secret; and thy Father which seeth in secret shall reward thee openly. 7, But when ye pray, use not vain repetitions, as the heathen do: for they think that they shall be heard for their much speaking.
