..." Courage, brethren; and on, on to the victory! Let your hearts rejoice, and be exceeding glad. Let the earth break forth into singing. Let the dead speak forth anthems of eternal praise to the King Immanuel, who hath ordained before the world was that which would enable us to redeem them out of their prisons; for the prisoners shall go free. Let the mountains shout for joy, and all ye valleys cry aloud; and all ye seas and dry lands tell the wonders of your eternal King. And ye rivers, and brooks, and rills, flow down with gladness. Let the woods and all the trees of the field praise the Lord; and ye solid rocks weep for joy. And let the sun, moon, and the morning stars sing together, and let all the sons of God shout for joy. And let the eternal creations declare his name for ever and ever. "
…”later that evening when Joseph and Bob were taking questions, the burning in the bosom returned, for I was witnessing the events of my dreams I had on September 17, in which all parts of the restoration would be gathered in fulfillment of those dreams that God had given to me earlier and the truthfulness of the events that were coming forth out of Brazil. The spirit rested upon me very greatly as I bore testimony that evening at the end of that session of the experiences the Lord has given me on September 17th after the Skype session and the importance of each saint to apply the principles of Jesus Christ into their lives to be able to make it to the supper.” David G Bronson (continue)
“When I heard from my cousin about the Plates, which were going to be interpreted, I suddenly felt the excitement swell up inside of me! I knew this would be the beginning of the movement of our Lord Jesus and His people. Zion was coming, too. The words of God came flooding back into my mind of that summer youth camp prayer service [years before] coming true. I even said, Finally! Suddenly I wanted to go back to church! I chose to attend Zarahemla, where Brother Bob Moore attends, so I could hear about Zion and the Plates during Sunday School and Sermons. I live in Olathe [some distance away], but I am there every Sunday morning, evening and for prayer services. And yes, the prayer services especially designed to pray for Zion.” Cille Austin (continue)
“My wife and I (are) seekers for truth. We are very excited about the work of the Lord going on in Brazil. We have both listened (to) and read the testimonies of the three and the eight witnesses, and we believe it is of The Lord. Every day we pray for God to shield both the translator of the sealed portion of the plates and the three and eight witnesses, from the influence and power of the advesary and his followers. However, we know that the work of The Lord cannot be frustrated. We desire with all of our hearts to be part of this work. We have a great desire to be baptized by Joseph F Smith and have him lay his hands upon our heads for gift of the Holy Ghost. We have been earnestly praying for this.” C. M. (continue)
“My testimony is that the Sealed Portion of the Book of Mormon that is about to come forth – is TRUE. I would urge everyone who reads the testimonies on this site to ask, seek and knock about the Sealed Portion, about Mauricio Berger, about all of the witnesses, so that you can also rely upon God’s answer and not man’s. Yes, God speaks through men. Those men who the Lord speaks through, will speak the words of Christ and the Holy Ghost will carry those words into our hearts if our hearts are broken open and our spirits are contrite. Please, open your hearts and pray if you haven’t already. Now is the time.” Renee Whitefield (continue)
“It is my faith and assurance that the Lord is involved in this effort to give us knowledge from the sealed portion of the Book of Mormon plates. I look forward to the time that we can read that record. Power comes from the words that will be translated. These words to Joseph Smith apply to the words we will get from this record, “Behold, if they will not believe my words, they would not believe you, my servant Joseph, if it were possible that you should show them all these things which I have committed unto you.” (LDS D&C 5:7) I believe with all my heart that Moroni has entrusted Mauricio with the ancient Book of Mormon record. I praise God that I will soon have the opportunity to read what the Lord wants revealed in this day.” Russell Anderson (continue)
“I testify that all these things were prophesied of and recorded in our standard books of scriptures and are now being fulfilled before our eyes! The message is absolute Truth…. Behold, the Bridegroom cometh, go out to meet Him! The King is sending the invitation, one last time…. Come to the Wedding Feast of His Son! The Latter Day Ark, ZION, is about to be built! The instructions for Zion and THE Temple in Zion are in the newly opened 1st part of the sealed portion which the Seer is now translating. I testify that our Heavenly Father has called the seed of Joseph as a Prophet of God for this work, and he is a truly humble and obedient servant of God. This is my testimony which I bear confidently and in the name of Jesus Christ. Amen” R. C. (continue)
“I have no problem waiting until the translation by Mauricio comes forth to judge it because we already have been given a pattern to do so only after we “receive these things.” You know the verse well: “Behold, I would exhort you that when ye shall read these things, if it be wisdom in God…he will manifest the truth of it unto you, by the power of the Holy Ghost. (Moroni LDS 10:3–4, RLDS 10:3–5) It would be very silly and foolish of me to judge either Joseph or Mauricio before I get a chance to “read these things” and thus it has always been so in Mormonism from the beginning .” Jonathan Clark Felt (continue)
