Jesus Christ, Our Savior

Jesus Christ is the Savior of the world and the Son of God. He is our Redeemer. The Holy Bible teaches us that Jesus Christ's mother was Mary, His father on earth was Joseph, that He was born in Bethlehem and raised in Nazareth, and labored with Joseph as a carpenter. When he turned 30, He began a three-year ministry of teaching, blessing, and healing the people of the Holy Land. He also organized His Church and gave His apostles "power and authority" (Luke 9:1) to assist in His work.

I learned from a young age that my Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ love me. Throughout my life I have had many faith building experiences to confirm this fact. I know of their love for me through the study of scriptures and prayer. I feel my Savior's love when I learn of His sacrifice for me and all mankind. I am grateful for the Holy Ghost that witnesses and testifies of His gospel and eternal truths.

In the New Testament, we learn about the "fruits of the spirit." They are the following:

Galatians 5:22-23:

22But the afruit of the bSpirit is clove, djoy, epeace, flongsuffering, ggentleness, goodness, hfaith,

23aMeekness, btemperance: against such there is no law.

When we feel these types of feelings we can know for a fact that truth is being taught and the Holy Ghost is witnessing it to us.

In John 14:26, we learn that the Holy Ghost will teach us the truth of all things:
26But the aComforter, which is the bHoly Ghost, whom the Father will send in my cname, he shall dteach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.

Through these two scriptures we learn that Heavenly Father speaks to us and teaches us through the Holy Ghost. We can learn of His plan and love for us if we but listen with our spiritual ears.
This is not always easy to do. In fact, it takes a lot of focus and desire. We must push aside the distractions of this world and tune in to the messages that are laid before us in Holy scriptures. We then must act in faith and pray unto our Heavenly Father to ask if what we read and ponder is true or not. I know from experience that this recipe works. I know that God the Father and His Son, Jesus Christ love me.

The video below shows some history past and present in preparation for the Savior's Second Coming.
Doctrine and Covenants 45:24–38, The gospel will be restored, the times of the Gentiles will be fulfilled, and a desolating sickness will cover the land; 39–47, Signs, wonders, and the Resurrection are to attend the Second Coming;
