Book of Mormon Church

THOSE WHO:

HEAR HIS VOICE --> ARE HIS SHEEP --> ARE THE CHURCH

"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." (Mosiah 26:21-22.)

Prophets in the Book of Mormon

Prophets Were Sent By God

23 And also in the reign of Shule there came prophets among the people, who were sent from the Lord, prophesying that the wickedness and idolatry of the people was bringing a curse upon the land, and they should be destroyed if they did not repent. (Ether 7:23)

Prophets Foretold the Coming of Christ

13 And the Lord God hath sent his holy prophets among all the children of men, to declare these things to every kindred, nation, and tongue, that thereby whosoever should believe that Christ should come, the same might receive remission of their sins, and rejoice with exceedingly great joy, even as though he had already come among them. (Mosiah 3:13)

Prophets Helped the Priests and Teachers

11 Wherefore, the prophets, and the priests, and the teachers, did labor diligently, exhorting with all long-suffering the people to diligence; (Jarom 1:11)

Prophets Helped Kings

17 For behold, king Benjamin was a holy man, and he did reign over his people in righteousness; and there were many holy men in the land, and they did speak the word of God with power and with authority; and they did use much sharpness because of the stiffneckedness of the peopleó
18 Wherefore, with the help of these, king Benjamin, by laboring with all the might of his body and the faculty of his whole soul, and also the prophets, did once more establish peace in the land. (Words of Mormon)

Prophets Were Not

Prophets were never part of an administrative office, church structure, called or confirmed by men.
