“Who Among Them Hath Declared These Things the Lord Hath Loved Him”

Bryan Richards

The Lord loves those prophets who have declared his message. 'How beautiful upon the mountains are the feet of him that bringeth good tidings, that publisheth peace; that bringeth good tidings of good' (Isa 52:7). Abinadi taught that this was a description of 'all the holy prophets ever since the world began' (Mosiah 15:13). The Lord promises that all that they prophesy will come to pass, 'he will fulfil his word which he hath declared by them.' Because of his love for his prophets, the Lord is careful to make sure that 'every jot and tittle' of the law and the prophecies shall be fulfilled (Alma 34:13).
