Passage: Alma 3:63 - Alma 3:83
63 And if ye will not hearken unto the voice of the good shepherd, to the name by which ye are called, behold, ye are not the sheep of the good shepherd.
64 And now if ye are not the sheep of the good shepherd, of what fold are ye?
65 Behold, I say unto you, that the devil is your shepherd, and ye are of his fold; and now who can deny this?
66 Behold, I say unto you, Whosoever denieth this, is a liar and a child of the devil;
67 For I say unto you, that whatsoever is good, cometh from God, and whatsoever is evil, cometh from the devil;
68 Therefore, if a man bringeth forth good works, he hearkeneth unto the voice of the good shepherd; and he doth follow him;
69 But whosoever bringeth forth evil works, the same becometh a child of the devil; for he hearkeneth unto his voice, and doth follow him.
70 And whosoever doeth this must receive his wages of him; therefore, for his wages he receiveth death, as to things pertaining unto righteousness, being dead unto all good works.
71 And now my brethren, I would that ye should hear me, for I speak in the energy of my soul;
72 For behold, I have spoken unto you plain, that ye can not err, or have spoken according to the commandments of God.
73 For I am called to speak after this manner, according to the holy order of God, which is in Christ Jesus:
74 Yea, I am commanded to stand and testify unto this people the things which have been spoken by our fathers, concerning the things which are to come.
75 And this is not all. Do ye not suppose that I know of these things myself?
76 Behold, I testify unto you, that I do know that these things whereof I have spoken, are true.
77 And how do ye suppose that I know of their surety?
78 Behold, I say unto you, They are made known unto me by the Holy Spirit of God.
79 Behold, I have fasted and prayed many days, that I might know these things of myself.
80 And now I do know of myself that they are true; for the Lord God hath made them manifest unto me by his Holy Spirit; and this is the spirit of revelation which is in me.
81 And moreover, I say unto you, that as it has thus been revealed unto me, that the words which have been spoken by our fathers, are true,
82 Even so according to the spirit of prophecy, which is in me, which is also by the manifestation of the Spirit of God, I say unto you, that I know of myself that whatsoever I shall say unto you concerning that which is to come, is true,
83 And I say unto you, that I know that Jesus Christ shall come; yea, the Son, the only begotten of the Father, full of grace, and mercy, and truth.
