“Signs,” True to the Faith, 163


Signs are events or experiences that demonstrate the power of God. They are often miraculous. They identify and announce great events, such as the Savior’s birth, death, and Second Coming. They remind us of covenants the Lord has made with us. Signs may also bear witness of a divine calling or indicate the Lord’s disapproval.

Some people claim that they would believe in God or His work if they were able to receive a sign. But the Lord has said, “Faith cometh not by signs, but signs follow those that believe” (D&C 63:9). Such signs are given to those who are faithful and obedient in order to strengthen them in their faith.
