Mosiah 27:13, Alma 36:8, 38:7

Nevertheless he cried again, saying:

“Alma, arise and stand forth,
for why persecutest thou the church of God?
for the Lord hath said:

‘This is my church, and I will establish it.

And nothing shall overthrow it,
save it is the transgression of my people.’”

But behold, the voice said unto me:

“Arise. and I arose and stood up, and beheld the angel.”

But behold, the Lord in his great mercy sent his angel to declare unto me that I must stop the work of destruction among his people; yea, and I have seen an angel face to face, and he spake with me, and his voice was as thunder, and it shook the whole earth.
