Mosiah 3:6 - 3:10

Mosiah 3:6 And he shall cast out devils, or the evil spirits which dwell in the hearts of the children of men.

In addition, He will cast out devils that may occupy the bodies or hearts of men.

Mosiah 3:7 And lo, he shall suffer temptations, and pain of body, hunger, thirst, and fatigue, even more than man can suffer, except it be unto death; for behold, blood cometh from every pore, so great shall be his anguish for the wickedness and the abominations of his people.

He will also suffer just as men do. He will know hunger, thirst, various pains in the body, tiredness because of his occupation, and deal with the various temptations that we have to put up with in mortality. Much of this will happen as He performs the atonement in which He will bleed from every pore of his body.

Mosiah 3:8 And he shall be called Jesus Christ, the Son of God, the Father of heaven and earth, the Creator of all things from the beginning; and his mother shall be called Mary.

His name will be Jesus Christ. His is the Son of God, the Father of heaven and earth and the Creator of all things which will be placed on this earth. His mother’s name will be Mary.

Mosiah 3:9 And lo, he cometh unto his own, that salvation might come unto the children of men even through faith on his name; and even after all this they shall consider him a man, and say that he hath a devil, and shall scourge him, and shall crucify him.

He will be born to those who know about a creator and a God who will save them. Those who know that salvation can only come through Him. However, they will not recognize Him for who he is and accuse Him of working miracles by the power of the devil. His people will in fact beat and crucify him.

Mosiah 3:10 And he shall rise the third day from the dead; and behold, he standeth to judge the world; and behold, all these things are done that a righteous judgment might come upon the children of men.

On the third day after His death, He will raise from the dead. He will now be able to righteously judge all the people of the world. He can say He has experienced mortality in its worse case and therefore give an objective judgment to all of us.
[He will be our judge but He will just confirm the judgment we pass on ourselves. We know our true state and when we see Jesus we will know for ourselves what should be our final fate.]
