The Words of Eternal Life (Christ's own words) Are Available to Every Believing Heart

These are not just the printed scriptures. Those are definitely “the words of eternal life,” or in other words, “the words of Christ,” given to those prophets through the Holy Ghost. (See 2 Nephi 32:3.) But the amazing thing is that we can receive the “words of eternal life,” (the words of Christ) through the Holy Ghost directly to our own minds and hearts. This is the principle of personal revelation–and it is the foundation principle of the entire Restoration of Christ’s true church in these latter-days.

This is what it means to be “spiritually-minded,” as it is so plainly stated in 2 Nephi 9:39– “Remember, to be carnally–minded is death, and to be spiritually–minded is life eternal.”

The Lord, Himself, stated it again in John 5:39–“Search the scriptures; for in them ye think ye have eternal life: and they are they which testify of me.”

And they are they which testify of Him, of His goodness, of His generosity and willingness to come to us and guide us one-one-one through His direct Spirit/Light and also through the Holy Ghost. What greater gift can there a person receive from and through the Holy Spirit than to hear even more clearly the “words of Christ” which words will tell us in all things “what ye should do.” (See 2 Nephi 32:3 again.)
