In this month’s special issue of the Ensign on the Lord Jesus Christ is an article that compiles testimonies of the modern prophets regarding the Savior. “He Lives! The Witness of Latter-day Prophets” (also available on JesusChrist.lds.org) contains statements from 15 Presidents of the Church about the reality of Jesus Christ and His central role in the salvation of mankind. One remarkable thing about these quotes is the consistently bold manner of their declaration of Christ’s divinity. Another thing I find remarkable is the focus on the witness of the Spirit in the statements by Joseph F. Smith and Lorenzo Snow. After they made these statements, these men had visions, and through his granddaughter we know that Lorenzo Snow saw the Savior in the Salt Lake Temple. Yet it was the Holy Ghost bearing witness to their hearts that really gave them a testimony. And so it shall always be.
