2 Nephi 27:23
Jesus Christ told Nephi, “Behold, I am God; and I am a God of Miracles; and I will
show unto the world that I am the same yesterday, today, and forever; and I work
not among the children of men save it be according to their faith.”
“Do you understand, that everything we have is required by God our Father, to be
laid upon the altar? Is there anything that is nearer your heart than the Gospel
of the Lord Jesus Christ? Is there anything that stands between you and perfect obedience,
to the will of God?” - George Q. Cannon
King Lamoni’s father was so hard-hearted that he was prepared to kill his own son
for the relationship that he had with a Nephite. His astonishment for the charity
which Ammon had for Lamoni helped him become humble and teachable. This wicked man
felt the Spirit so strongly that he was willing to give up everything to know God
better. And, when asked to offer a broken-heart he did so without hesitation, seeing
the blessing of being called one of God’s own. (Alma 20-22)
Some symbolism on The Salt Lake temple that I love I have added to my painting:
The Cloud stones; The gospel piercing through superstition and spiritual darkness.
Big-dipper; The lost may look to the priesthood…and find their way back to God.
The all-seeing eye; God always sees you and when you need His help.

Alma experienced the joy and forgiveness that comes from crying unto Jesus Christ,
and receiving a remission of sins through his atonement.
Amulek lost everyone he loved when Christians in his city were burned. "Alma...took
Amulek...to his own house, and did administer unto him in his tribulations, and strengthened
him in the Lord" (Alma 15:18). The red represents the fire where the believers were
martyred, the blue, the waters of baptism, the white, the light of Christ that heals.
