This weekend, overlooking the ancient city of Jerusalem, our Prophet Russell M. Nelson’s bore his witness of Jesus Christ. “I also declare that Jesus the Christ lives, that His Church has been restored to the earth, complete with His power and authority, with apostles and prophets.”
Overlooking the city, a voice of a prophet was heard once again as he addressed members of the Church, “God has always dealt with His children on the earth through prophets from the time of Adam to the present day.”
The whole Biblical record, one where another testifies of prophets and apostles who have testified in this land, and it is a personal thrill for me, it’s a spine-tingling thrill for me to realize that I’m in the company of President Russell M. Nelson, a modern prophet in every sense with the same authority and the same priesthood, and teaching the same gospel.—Jeffery R. Holland
Stating that Jerusalem is a fitting place for President Nelson to visit as a central part of his global ministry tour, the narrator opened her report saying: “The walls of the Holy city of Jerusalem have echoed with the voices of God’s prophets for thousands of years, Old Testament prophets such as Isaiah, Jeremiah, and Ezekiel. It was here where the Savior Jesus Christ Himself undertook much of His ministry and willingly sacrificed His life.”
The President also told the audience, “As the new president to the Church, I felt that there were two messages that I would like to convey to our people. One is that Jesus is the Christ and He has a message for all of God’s children. And the second is that His is a global invitation. We invite all of God’s children to come unto their Savior.”
Joining him, Elder Holland and their wives, each spoke during a devotional service at the BYU Jerusalem Center.
Continuing his witness, President Nelson said, “In the coming day the Lord will return to this Holy Land. …He is the Son of God, Jehovah, the Old Testament, the promised Emanuel, our great exemplar, our redeemer, our God, our King, I’m honored to be listed among the many who teach and testify of the Lord Jesus Christ.”
