2 Nephi 32. verse 12 There are to be at least three major scriptural testimonies of Christ that will eventually come forth. In latter-day scripture we read: "And they who are in the north countries shall come in remembrance before the Lord; and their prophets shall hear his voice, and shall no longer stay themselves" (D&C 133:26). We spent a lot of time practicing our presentation for zone conference. Deut. In 2 Nephi 27, Nephi borrowed extensively from the language of Isaiah 29 to describe the coming forth of the Book of Mormon. The meaning of the phrase "end of man" is unclear. We have got a Bible, and there cannot be any more Bible. When Joseph finished his inspired revision of the Old Testament, he inquired of the Lord on March 9, 1833, as to whether or not he should translate or revise these apocryphal books. 2 And also, that I may remember the promises which I have made unto thee, Nephi, and also unto thy father, that I would remember your seed; and that the words of your seed should proceed forth out of my mouth unto your seed; and my words shall hiss forth unto the ends of the earth, for a standard unto my people, which are of the house of Israel; verse 2 "the promises which I have made unto thee, Nephi, and also unto thy father" The Lord extends the Abrahamic covenant to the posterity of the Book of Mormon people. . Here the term "Gentile" is likely best interpreted as any non-Jew who is a candidate to be gathered back to the fold or church of God. The implication seems to be that the record of the Jews, the Bible, contains revelation intended primarily for the people of the Old World. Know ye not that I, the Lord your God, have created all men, and that I remember those who are upon the bisles of the sea; and that I rule in the heavens above and in the cearth beneath; and I bring forth my dword unto the children of men, yea, even upon all the nations of the earth? 13:39 (38â41); 2Â Ne. 2 Nephi 29. Have not sought to recover them--as in have not tried to help them return to Israel and displace the Palestinians living there? If the Lord is going to set his hand a "second" time to gather Israel, then when was the first time the Lord "set his hand to recover his people"? What are the perceptions of the Gentiles relative to the Bible and its origins? We have got a Bible, and there cannot be any more Bible. 2 Nephi 16. But to be learned is good if they hearken unto the counsels of God. 6:14; 21:11; 25:17. A-A; A+; 2 Ne 25:1 Isaiah spake many things which were hard for many of my people to understand. Miracles, spiritual gifts, and revelation are always available to the true followers of Christ. Heber C. Kimball, after returning from a missionary excursion, wrote, "We delivered our testimony to many [ministers] who with one consent said 'we have enough and need no more revelation;' thus fulfilling a prediction of the Book of Mormon" (Times and Seasons [16 August 1841] 2:507-11). Modern revelation indicates that the massive immigration pouring across the Lord's mighty highway will saturate all of the arable land and require the settling of both deserts and barren regions. 6 Thou fool, that shall say: A Bible, we have got a Bible, and we need no more Bible. In essence, 2 Nephi 27 (Isaiah 29) is a detailed prophecy about the coming forth of the Book of Mormon. The lost tribes are Israelites whose identity is not known to the world and in some cases not even to themselves. 11:6; D&C 55:1; Moses 6:44. 13:24 (23â24). Since Ephraim was the predominant tribe among the ten lost tribes, and since the latter day Church has frequently been referred to as consisting of the "children of Ephraim," perhaps the Doctrine and Covenants should be regarded as a witness for Jesus Christ among latter-day Ephraim which may some day be combined with the other records of the lost tribes when they come forth. This particular verse leaves open the possibility that several other records may have been written and may yet come forth. It could refer to the time when each and every one of the spirit children of God-those who belong to our round of creation-has been dispatched to this mortal earth to one of the other worlds in this round of the Father's creation. Jeremiah says the Lord will lead the seed of Israel "out of the north country" and then comments: "It shall no more be said, the Lord liveth, that brought up the children of Israel out of the land of Egypt; but the Lord liveth, that brought up the children of Israel from the land of the north and from all the lands whither he had driven them" (Jeremiah 16:14-15). What to do with misguided children? Nay; but ye have cursed them, and have hated them, and have not sought to recover them. Do they remember the travails, and the labors, and the pains of the Jews, and their diligence unto me, in bringing forth salvation unto the Gentiles? 2 Nephi Chapter 29 « Previous Next » Book of Mormon Annotations; Chapter 29 . Instead of quoting Isaiah directly, Nephi is writing his own sermon which quotes Isaiah heavily, and in many instances verbatim. 1) “A … powerful testimony to the importance of the Book of Mormon is to note where the Lord placed its coming forth in the timetable of the unfolding Restoration. About 588–570 B.C. In 2 Nephi 26 only three verses can be said to be reasonably direct quotations of verses from Isaiah 29. And they taught, and did minister one to another; 3 Nephi 26:19 Read in scriptures:... LDS Scripture of the Day February 13, 2020. "the lost tribes of Israel shall have the words of the Nephites and the Jews", The expression "lost tribes" is found in only two verses of scripture, here and in, It is obvious that the latter-day gathering and restoration of Israel will also include a gathering, into one, of the three major scriptural testimonies of Christ. As a result of this migration they eventually settled in Germany, Denmark, Sweden, Iceland, Holland, England, and France. Their deafness and blindness was a product of their willful rebellion against the prophets, the … It ends following "my words shall hiss forth"-in verse 3. TGÂ Israel, Gathering of; Israel, Restoration of. This would include the citizens of the great Gentile nation of the latter days, the United States of America, though many of those citizens are blood descendants of the house of Israel. Perhaps the Lord refers here to his mortal ministry as the "first time" he set his hand to recover his people. Is it not logical to expect a corresponding record to be provided for people of the New World? Nephi frequently borrowed the language of Isaiah 29 to describe his own visions and prophecies about the latter-days. The City of Enoch was taken up and perhaps even that portion of earth on which the city was located. How can we be the "hissers" or tellers? "O fools, they shall have a Bible" The Lord refers to the people of the latter day.
