My Testimony of Jesus Christ


My Testimony of Jesus Christ


My name is Ellis Li. One night during the summertime in 1979, I had a dream.At 25 years old, I saw Jesus Christ come to me at my house in Hawaii. The Holy Ghost bore witnessed to me that He is the Son of God.He wore a white robe with a red sash on His left shoulder.He also wore old-fashioned sandals on both His feet. He had a short beard and His complexion was pinkish-tan.His hair was brown down to His shoulder.We communicated psychically instead of speaking out loud.At first I did not recognize Him because of all the different Jesus Christ pictures I have seen, which gave me a different image of what he really looked like.His appearance surprised me because it differed from the perspective in my mind.I am an artist, so my image of Him is very fair, perfect and handsome.When I saw him, he was very tired and exhausted and seemed like he was all worn-out.His shoulders were so heavy because of all the pressure of sins from trillions and trillions of people.I use to think that the atonement was done in the Garden of Gethsemane but I was wrong. The atonement is still going on as of today.I felt deeply of what He was suffering and is still facing it today.He came to give me a very personal message about life: the past, the present and the future.I felt His love for me and the love for all of Heavenly Fatherís children.I felt the love He has for our Heavenly Father that he may take this burden upon Himself to set a great example for all of us.I can relate to a few pictures that have a very close resemblance of the true image of Jesus Christ.Sometimes I feel that these kinds of pictures can give us a wrong impression, unless they do look very much like Him.From what I have experienced, I know that I truly did receive a special message that I may know what He looks like.Our image of Jesus Christ is very important, if someday we do see Him face to face, we can recognize Him and know that He is the true Savior.Here are a few scriptures that best describe what he looks like relating to what I encountered in my dream.I like to bear you my witness that I did spoke with the Lord face and face in dream and I know that he lives. He is the Savior of the world and the Son of God, and by repentence we can become cleanse again. In the name of Jesus Christ. Amen.


In Isaiah 53: 2-6 it said,


2. For he shall grow up before him as a tender plant, and as root out of a dry ground: he hath no form nor comeliness; and when we shall see him, there is no beauty that we should desire him.

3. He is dispised and rejected of men; a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief: and we hid as it were our faces from him; he was despised, and we esteemed him not.

4. Surely he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicated.

5. But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.

6. All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and the LORD hath laid on him the iniquity of us all.


Here are 2 pictures that have close resemblance to his physical looks while he was on earth. Yet still are a little difference but close.


Through this dream, I have learned a true principle.     Certainly all the blessings will come with a valid sealing as promised in the scripture. D&C 130: 20-21, "There is a law; irrevocably decreed in heaven before the foundations of this world, upon which all blessings are predicated. And when we obtain any blessing from God, it is by obedience to that law upon which it is predicated."     

I have learned that the atonement is so true and I felt what Jesus Christ felt thru this experience.
