1 Cor 15:1 Moreover, brethren, I adeclare unto you the bgospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand;

2 By which also ye are asaved, if ye bkeep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain.

3 For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ adied for our bsins according to the scriptures;

4 And that he was buried, and that he arose again the third day according to the scriptures:

5 And that he was aseen of bCephas, then of the twelve:

6 After that, he was aseen of babove five hundred brethren at once; of whom the greater part remain unto this present, but some are fallen asleep.

7 After that, he was seen of James; then of all the apostles.

8 And last of all he was aseen of me also, as of one born out of due time.

9 For I am the least of the apostles, that am not ameet to be called an apostle, because I bpersecuted the church of God.

10 But by the agrace of God I am what I am: and his grace which was bestowed upon me was not in vain; but I blaboured more abundantly than they all: yet not I, but the grace of God which was with me.

11 Therefore whether it were I or they, so we preach, and so ye believed.

12 Now if Christ be preached that he rose from the dead,

how say some among you that there is no resurrection of the dead?

13 But if there be no resurrection of the dead,

then is Christ not risen:

14 And if Christ be not risen, then is our preaching vain, and your faith is also vain.

15 Yea, and we are found false witnesses of God; because we have atestified of God that he raised up Christ: whom he raised not up, if so be that the dead rise not.

16 For if the dead rise not, then is not Christ raised:

17 And if Christ be not raised, your faith is avain; ye are yet in your sins.

18 Then they also which are fallen asleep in Christ are aperished.

19 If in this alife only we have bhope in Christ, we are of all men most miserable.

























Revelation 14:4

4 These are they which were not defiled with awomen; for they are virgins. These are they which follow the Lamb whithersoever he goeth. These were bredeemed from among men, being the firstfruits unto God and to the Lamb.



20 But now is aChrist brisen from the dead, and become the cfirstfruits of them that slept.

21 For since by man came adeath, by man came also the bresurrection of the dead.

22 For as in aAdam all bdie, even so in cChrist shall all be made dalive.

23 But every man in his own aorder: Christ the bfirstfruits; afterward they that are Christ’s at his ccoming.

24 Then cometh the end, when he shall have delivered up the kingdom to God, even the Father; when he shall have aput down all brule and all cauthority and dpower.

25 For he must areign, till he hath put all benemies under his cfeet.

26 The last aenemy that shall be bdestroyed is cdeath.

27 For he hath put all things under his feet. But when he saith all things are put under him, it is amanifest that he is excepted, which did put all things under him.

28 And when all things shall be asubdued unto him, then shall the Son also himself be bsubject unto him that put all things under him, that God may be all in all.

29 Else what shall they do which are abaptized bfor the dead, if the dead crise not at all? why are they then baptized for the ddead?

30 And why stand we in ajeopardy every hour?

31 aI protest by your rejoicing which I have in Christ Jesus our Lord, I die daily.

32 If after the manner of men I have fought with beasts at Ephesus, what advantageth it me, if the dead rise not? let us aeat and drink; for bto morrow we die.

33 Be not deceived: evil acommunications corrupt good manners.

34 Awake to righteousness, and sin not; for some have not the knowledge of God: I speak this to your ashame.

35 But some man will say, How are the dead raised up? and with what body do they come?

36 Thou fool, that which thou sowest is not quickened, except it adie:

37 And that which thou sowest, thou sowest not that body that shall be, but bare grain, ait may chance of wheat, or of some other grain:

38 But God giveth it a body as it hath pleased him, and to every seed his own body.

39 All flesh is not the same flesh: but there is one kind of flesh of men, another flesh of beasts, another of fishes, and another of birds.

40 aThere are also celestial bodies, and bodies terrestrial: but the glory of the bcelestial is one, and the glory of the cterrestrial is another.

41 There is one glory of the asun, and another glory of the moon, and another glory of the bstars: for one star cdiffereth from another star in dglory.

42 So also is the resurrection of the dead. It is sown in acorruption; it is raised in incorruption:

43 It is sown in dishonour; it is raised in aglory: it is sown in weakness; it is raised in power:

44 It is sown a anatural body; it is raised a bspiritual body. There is a natural body, and there is a spiritual body.

45 And so it is written, The afirst man bAdam was made a living soul; the last cAdam was made a dquickening spirit.

46 Howbeit that was not afirst which is spiritual, but that which is natural; and afterward that which is spiritual.

47 The first man is of the earth, earthy: the second man is the Lord from heaven.

48 As is the earthy, such are they also that are earthy: and as is the heavenly, such are they also that are heavenly.

49 And as we have borne the image of the earthy, we shall also bear the image of the heavenly.

50 Now this I say, brethren, that aflesh and bblood cannot cinherit the kingdom of God; neither doth dcorruption inherit incorruption.

51 Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all asleep, but we shall all be bchanged,

52 In a moment, in the atwinkling of an eye,

at the last trump: for the btrumpet shall sound, and the cdead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be dchanged.



1 Thessalonians 4:16

16 For the Lord himself shall adescend from heaven with ba shout, with the voice of the carchangel, and with the dtrump of God: and the dead in Christ shall erise first:

Matthew 24:31

31 And he shall send his aangels with a great sound of a btrumpet, and they shall gather together his celect from the four winds, from one end of dheaven to the other.


















53 For this acorruptible must put on incorruption, and this bmortal must put on immortality.

54 So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on aimmortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, bDeath is swallowed up in victory.

55 O adeath, where is thy sting? O bgrave, where is thy victory?

56 The sting of adeath is sin; and the bstrength of sin is the law.

57 But athanks be to God, which giveth us the bvictory through our Lord Jesus Christ.



Hebrews 7:16

16 Who is made, not after the law of a acarnal commandment, but after the power of an endless life.







































58 Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye asteadfast, unmoveable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labour is not in vain in the Lord.




















2 Nephi 10:24-25

24 Wherefore, my beloved brethren, areconcile yourselves to the bwill of God, and not to the will of the devil and the flesh; and remember, after ye are reconciled unto God, that it is only in and through the cgrace of God that ye are dsaved.







Isaiah 25:8

8 He will swallow up adeath in bvictory; and the Lord God will wipe away tears from off all faces; and the crebuke of his people shall he take away from off all the earth: for the Lord hath spoken it.


Alma 27

28 And they did look upon shedding the blood of their brethren with the greatest abhorrence; and they never could be prevailed upon to take up arms against their brethren; and they never did look upon death with any degree of terror, for their hope and views of Christ and the resurrection; therefore, death was swallowed up to them by the victory of Christ over it.

2 Nephi 2:5,18,27

5 And men are instructed sufficiently that they aknow good from evil. And the blaw is given unto men. And by the law no flesh is cjustified; or, by the law men are dcut off. Yea, by the temporal law they were cut off; and also, by the spiritual law they perish from that which is good, and become miserable forever.

Mormon 9:4

4 Behold, I say unto you that ye would be more miserable to dwell with a holy and just God, under a consciousness of your afilthiness before him, than ye would to dwell with the bdamned souls in chell.

Alma 42:11

11 And now remember, my son, if it were not for the plan of redemption, (laying it aside) as soon as they were dead their souls were amiserable, being cut off from the presence of the Lord.

Alma 12:26

26 And now behold, if it were possible that our first parents could have gone forth and partaken of the atree of life they would have been forever miserable, having no preparatory state; and thus the bplan of redemption would have been frustrated, and the word of God would have been void, taking none effect.


2 Nephi 2:

6 Wherefore, aredemption cometh in and through the bHoly cMessiah; for he is full of dgrace and truth.

7 Behold, he offereth himself a asacrifice for sin, to answer the ends of the law, unto all those who have a broken heart and a contrite spirit; and unto bnone else can the cends of the law be answered.

8 Wherefore, how great the importance to make these things known unto the inhabitants of the earth, that they may know that there is no flesh that can dwell in the presence of God, asave it be through the merits, and mercy, and grace of the Holy Messiah, who blayeth down his life according to the flesh, and taketh it again by the power of the Spirit, that he may bring to pass the cresurrection of the dead, being the first that should rise.

9 Wherefore, he is the firstfruits unto God, inasmuch as he shall make aintercession for all the children of men; and they that believe in him shall be saved.


Helaman 12:6

6 Behold, they do not desire that the Lord their God, who hath acreated them, should brule and reign over them; notwithstanding his great goodness and his mercy towards them, they do set at cnaught his counsels, and they will not that he should be their guide.












2 Nephi 28:7-8

7 Yea, and there shall be many which shall say: aEat, drink, and be merry, for tomorrow we die; and it shall be well with us.





















Doctrine and Covenants 88:28

28 They who are of a celestial aspirit shall receive the same bbody which was a natural body; even ye shall receive your bodies, and your cglory shall be that glory by which your bodies are dquickened.















3 Nephi 28:8

8 And ye shall never endure the pains of death; but when I shall come in my glory ye shall be changed in the twinkling of an eye from amortality to bimmortality; and then shall ye be blessed in the kingdom of my Father.

Mosiah 26:25

25 And it shall come to pass that when the asecond trump shall sound then shall they that never bknew me come forth and shall stand before me.

Mormon 9:13

13 And because of the redemption of man, which came by Jesus Christ, they are brought back into the apresence of the Lord; yea, this is wherein all men are redeemed, because the death of Christ bringeth to pass the bresurrection, which bringeth to pass a redemption from an endless csleep, from which sleep all men shall be awakened by the power of God when the trump shall sound; and they shall come forth, both small and great, and all shall stand before his bar, being redeemed and loosed from this eternal dband of death, which death is a temporal death.


Isaiah 25:8

8 He will swallow up adeath in bvictory; and the Lord God will wipe away tears from off all faces; and the crebuke of his people shall he take away from off all the earth: for the Lord hath spoken it.

Mosiah 15:8

8 And thus God breaketh the abands of death, having gained the bvictory over death; giving the Son power to make cintercession for the children of men—


Mosiah 16:

6 And now if Christ had not come into the world, speaking of things to come aas though they had already come, there could have been no redemption.

a) 7 And if Christ had not risen from the dead, or have broken the bands of death that

b) the grave should have no victory, and that death should have no asting,

c) there could have been no resurrection.

c') 8 But there is a aresurrection,

b’) therefore the grave hath no victory, and the sting of bdeath is swallowed up

a’) in Christ

9 He is the alight and the life of the world; yea, a light that is endless, that can never be darkened; yea, and also a life which is endless, that there can be no more death.

10 Even this mortal shall put on aimmortality, and this bcorruption shall put on incorruption, and shall be brought to cstand before the bar of God, to be judged of him according to their works whether they be good or whether they be evil—

11 If they be good, to the resurrection of aendless life and bhappiness; and if they be evil, to the resurrection of cendless damnation, being delivered up to the devil, who hath subjected them, which is damnation—

Mormon 7

5 Know ye that ye must come to the aknowledge of your fathers, and repent of all your sins and iniquities, and bbelieve in Jesus Christ, that he is the Son of God, and that he was slain by the Jews, and by the power of the Father he hath risen again, whereby he hath gained the cvictory over the grave; and also in him is the sting of death swallowed up.

6 And he bringeth to pass the aresurrection of the dead, whereby man must be raised to stand before his bjudgment-seat.

7 And he hath brought to pass the aredemption of the bworld, whereby he that is found cguiltless before him at the judgment day hath it given unto him to ddwell in the presence of God in his kingdom, to sing ceaseless praises with the echoirs above, unto the Father, and unto the Son, and unto the Holy Ghost, which are fone God, in a state of ghappiness which hath no end.

Alma 22:14

14 And since man had afallen he could not bmerit anything of himself; but the sufferings and cdeath of Christ datone for their sins, through faith and repentance, and so forth; and that he breaketh the bands of death, that the egrave shall have no victory, and that the sting of death should be swallowed up in the hopes of glory; and Aaron did expound all these things unto the king.

Mosiah 15:8

8 And thus God breaketh the abands of death, having gained the bvictory over death; giving the Son power to make cintercession for the children of men—


Mosiah 5:

15 Therefore, I would that ye should be steadfast and immovable, always abounding in agood works, that Christ, the bLord God Omnipotent, may cseal you his, that you may be brought to heaven, that ye may have everlasting salvation and eternal life, through the wisdom, and power, and justice, and mercy of him who dcreated all things, in heaven and in earth, who is God above all. Amen.


1 Nephi 2:

10 And he also spake unto Lemuel: O that thou mightest be like unto this valley, afirm and bsteadfast, and immovable in keeping the commandments of the Lord!

Alma 1:

25 Now this was a great trial to those that did stand fast in the faith; nevertheless, they were asteadfast and immovable in keeping the commandments of God, and they bore with bpatience the persecution which was heaped upon them.
