The Converting Power of Abinadi's Powerful Testimony of Christ

May we all have the Faith of Abinadi, whose one and only Convert, Alma, brought many others and his posterity and many more converts to the Gospel of Christ. Read part of his testimony below:

When Abinadi testified of the truth, "they stood forth and attempted to lay their hands on him; but he withstood them, and said unto them:

Touch me not, for God shall smite you if ye lay your hands upon me, for I have not delivered the message which the Lord sent me to deliver; neither have I told you that which ye requested that I should tell; therefore, God will not suffer that I shall be destroyed at this time." (Mosiah 13:2-3)

Later the account reads "Now it came to pass after Abinadi had spoken these words that the people of king Noah durst not lay their hands on him, for the Spirit of the Lord was upon him; and his face shone with exceeding luster, even as Moses’ did while in the mount of Sinai, while speaking with the Lord." (vs 5)

Abinadi later testified of Christ many many times, including the following:

"Have they not said that God himself should come down among the children of men, and take upon him the form of man, and go forth in mighty power upon the face of the earth?

Yea, and have they not said also that he should bring to pass the resurrection of the dead, and that he, himself, should be oppressed and afflicted?" 

He also stated-

"He is the light and the life of the world; yea, a light that is endless, that can never be darkened; yea, and also a life which is endless, that there can be no more death."

Later Abinadi gave his life for this gospel of Jesus Christ.
