There are many scriptures regarding the "gifts" in The Sealed Book of Mormon.  "The Sealed Book of Moses" and "Acts of the Three Nephites" included in some of the quotes below, are books contained in The Sealed Book of Mormon.  See more about The Sealed Book of Mormon.



The Sealed Book of Moses 3:61-64  You can not, therefore, effect a single part of my work if there be not among you the sentiments derived from the gifts which correspond to a spark of me the Lord. No, in no way can my people live the height of my priesthood in a united order, as it did in the days of Enoch, without the noblest and high feeling in their hearts, all derived from charity, which is the purest expression of the love of God among the children of men, much less you can effect any ministry, whether it be healing or powerful works without any of the feelings derived from this greater gift. This, therefore, is the procedure among the various ministries which are in the priestly order of the Only Begotten Son, for no authorized representative in the sacred order of my priesthood can perform any miracle, such as healing, unless there is the gift of compassion in your hearts when they pray with hands on top of the sick. Your action will be in vain if there is no corresponding feeling within you to do the work, whatever it may be.


Exodus 28:38 And it shall be upon Aaron's forehead, that Aaron may bear the iniquity of the holy things, which the children of Israel shall hallow in all their holy gifts; and it shall be always upon his forehead, that they may be accepted before the Lord.


The Sealed Book of Mormon 3:60 This is, therefore, the key to the priesthood and the mystery that will be sealed in this book until the time of the end, because there is nothing more sacred to be revealed to men in the flesh than this knowledge, that the name of God can be invoked in their hearts, and that one can not evoke the powers of the heavens in the holy priesthood of the Son of God, unless it be through sentiments derived from the love of the Only Begotten Son of the Father, each one correspondent to his ministry, because to some, as the Spirit leads, produce sundry feelings, which we call God's gifts1 . (1) 1John 4:8


Matthew 7:20 If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children, how much more shall your Father who is in heaven give good things to them that ask him?

Acts of the Three Nephites 13:19 Just as it was said to my disciples, I tell this generation about which I prophesy at this moment that the mysteries of God1 are given in these words of mine, for this the words of this book reveals that the essence of the gifts from my Father are the pure feelings that lodge in your hearts.

But they were all partakers of the greater Gift in their hearts, living in communion the fullness of the feelings, united in such a way, that they consecrated all that they possessed for the sake of a greater good — charity.


Alma 7:31 And having the spirit of prophecy, and the spirit of revelation, and also many gifts; the gift of speaking with tongues, and the gift of preaching, and the gift of the Holy Ghost, and the gift of translation:

The Sealed Book of Moses 14:23 But behold, since the elements are arranged by the gifts, which are feelings derived from the name of God in me, they are grouped by the power of faith, which, through command of the word of God, the worlds were created; and so all creation submits to the authority that is in the name of God and of his Only Begotten Son, through the order of his priesthood, for the sake of his own deliverance.

The Sealed Book of Moses 4:21-23 Therefore, walk with me. Now, however, anoint thine eyes with clay, and wash them; and thou shalt see. And so did Enoch, that which God commanded him. Happened then, as Enoch traveled by the eastern sea in the flaming carriages of the cherubim, that a vision opened before his eyes and the Lord led him through the many abodes that are in the vastness of the heavens, where Enoch was informed of the importance of the Name of God among the elect people of his day, and the gifts, which are sentiments derived from the sacred name to inhibit and drive away the powers of darkness among the children of men by the knowledge of his pure doctrine and the correct observance of his commandments. God then made known to him the importance of his name, which was already being invoked in the hearts of those who heard the preaching of his ancestors but who did not understand the importance of using these gifts derived from the name of God, or in other words, the sentiments that flow from His Name, to obtain thereby, the victory over the influential powers of Satan, which are feelings coming from the darkness, opposed to the gifts of the Holy Spirit. In order to evoke the many names of God, it is necessary to develop the gifts, therefore, the corresponding feelings for each one of them, and yet protect your hearts against the evil feelings that will be interposed in an uproar and stupor of thoughts.


Moroni 10:9 And there are different ways that these gifts are administered; but it is the same God who worketh all in all; and they are given by the manifestations of the Spirit of God unto men, to profit them.

Moroni 10:10 For behold, to one is given by the Spirit of God, that he may teach the word of wisdom; and to another, that he may teach the word of knowledge by the same Spirit; and to another exceeding great faith; and to another, the gifts of healing by the same Spirit.

Moroni 10:18 And now I speak unto all the ends of the earth, that if the day cometh that the power and gifts of God shall be done away among you, it shall be because of unbelief.

Moroni 10:20 For if there be one among you that doeth good, he shall work by the power and gifts of God.


DC 6:5e If thou wilt do good, yea, and hold out faithful to the end, thou shalt be saved in the kingdom of God, which is the greatest of all the gifts of God; for there is no gift greater than the gift of salvation.


Acts of the Three Nephites 8:1-2 The Nephite people, taken then, by their highest sentiments, banished from their midst all resentment that came from the evil one, beginning with sorrow and rancor, then anguish and fear, anger, covetousness and lasciviousness, and many others derived from satan, and whenever an adverse feeling to the heavenly gifts was identified, a record was made of it for the purpose of being worked out at church meetings in general, for the purpose of being replaced by those noble sentiments derived from the bigger Gift, coming from the name of our God, one at a time, until the strife between brethren ceased to exist, and there were no more quarrels among the Nephite people. And, behold, the multitude of those who believed in the words of the disciples of Christ increased, and were baptized into a symbol of a spiritual rebirth, that is, as if buried in the waters of baptism, they abandoned the old sentiments of the evil one, who easily entangled them, in order to be reborn into a new life, clothed with the fullness of the good feelings that are in the name of Christ, which they took upon themselves and were greatly benefited by the gift of the Holy Spirit that was given to them by the laying on of the hands of the twelve; being all of them committed to the gospel of Jesus Christ in order to learn to develop in their fullness in the perfect body that is in communion with the gifts of God, becoming a people united in feelings and understanding as having one heart.

DC 46:4a Wherefore, beware, lest ye are deceived, and that ye may not be deceived, seek ye earnestly the best gifts, always remembering for what they are given;

DC 46:5a And again, verily I say unto you, I would that ye should always remember, and always retain in your minds what those gifts are, that are given unto the church, for all have not every gift given unto them;

DC 46:5b for there are many gifts, and to every man is given a gift by the Spirit of God:

DC 46:8a And it shall come to pass that he that asketh in spirit shall receive in spirit; that unto some it may be given to have all those gifts, that there may be a head, in order that every member may be profited thereby:


DC 104:42b Behold, here is wisdom, yea, to be a seer, a revelator, a translator, and a prophet; having all the gifts of God which he bestows upon the head of the church.


DC 107:29e who shall show unto him the keys whereby he may ask and receive, and be crowned with the same blessing, and glory, and honor, and priesthood, and gifts of the priesthood, that once were put upon him that was my servant Oliver Cowdery;

DC 119:8b All are called according to the gifts of God unto them; and to the intent that all may labor together, let him that laboreth in the ministry and him that toileth in the affairs of the men of business and of work labor together with God for the accomplishment of the work intrusted to all.


DC 125:14c If my people will respect the officers whom I have called and set in the church, I will respect these officers; and if they do not, they cannot expect the riches of gifts and the blessings of direction.
