Day 32-33: Mosiah 23-Alma 1 pgs 190-210
Mosiah 24: And I will also ease the burdens which are put upon your shoulders, that even you cannot feel them upon your backs, even while you are in bondage; and this will I do that ye may stand as witnesses for me hereafter, and that ye may know of a surety that I, the Lord God, do visit my people in their afflictions.
Mosiah 26:1] Now it came to pass that there were many of the rising generation that could not understand the words of king Benjamin, being little children at the time he spake unto his people; and they did not believe the tradition of their fathers.
 They did not believe what had been said concerning the resurrection of the dead, neither did they believe concerning the coming of Christ.
 And now because of their unbelief they could not understand the word of God; and their hearts were hardened.
Mosiah 26: 14 …the voice of the Lord came to him (Alma the Younger), saying:
 Blessed art thou, Alma, and blessed are they who were baptized in the waters of Mormon. Thou art blessed because of thy exceeding faith in the words alone of my servant Abinadi.
 And he that will hear my voice shall be my sheep; and him shall ye receive into the church, and him will I also receive.
 For behold, this is my church; whosoever is baptized shall be baptized unto repentance. And whomsoever ye receive shall believe in my name; and him will I freely forgive.
 For it is I that taketh upon me the sins of the world; for it is I that hath created them; and it is I that granteth unto him that believeth unto the end a place at my right hand.
 For behold, in my name are they called; and if they know me they shall come forth, and shall have a place eternally at my right hand.
 And it shall come to pass that when the second trump shall sound then shall they that never knew me come forth and shall stand before me.
 And then shall they know that I am the Lord their God, that I am their Redeemer; but they would not be redeemed.
 And then I will confess unto them that I never knew them; and they shall depart into everlasting fire prepared for the devil and his angels.
 Therefore I say unto you, that he that will not hear my voice, the same shall ye not receive into my church, for him I will not receive at the last day.
