No longer do they worry about the atonement, salvation by grace alone, infant baptism, the priesthood, the gifts of the Spirit, the passages about an apostasy, a gospel restoration, and the gathering of Israel. 24 And, notwithstanding we believe in Christ, we akeep the law of Moses, and look forward with steadfastness unto Christ, until the law shall be fulfilled. 2 Ne.

Spencer W. Kimball Isaiah prophesied that as the Book of Mormon would help dispel the darkness of almost 2,000 years of apostasy, the “wisdom” of the supposed “wise and learned” would “perish, and the understanding of their prudent” would come to naught (2 Nephi 27:26).

That set of interpretive sayings continues on until the end of chapter 30. Because Nephi’s people are of the House of Israel, they are part of that great saga and Nephi points them forward to its anticipated fulfillment. This principle is expressed in Jesus’ parable of the vine and the branches (John 15:1–11). A careful comparison of Isaiah 29 and the same chapter from the brass plates (2 Nephi 27) shows that some of the “plain and most precious” parts that have been “taken away” (1 Nephi 13:26–27) include: Latter-day context of the prophecy (see 2 Nephi 27:1). It is significant that the name Jesus Christ appears often in the Book of Mormon.

Scriptures warn us that the Spirit of the Lord will ‘not always strive with man.’ When we are confirmed, we are given the right to the companionship of the Holy Ghost, but it is a right that we must continue to earn through obedience and worthiness. February 17-23 2 Nephi 11-25 Study and Teaching Helps for all ages. Read 2 Nephi … Elder Jeffrey R. Holland of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles connected rejoicing in Jesus Christ with the mandate to obey the laws and ordinances of the gospel: “My greatest thrill and the most joyful of all realizations is that I have the opportunity, as Nephi phrased it, to ‘talk of Christ, … rejoice in Christ, … preach of Christ, [and] prophesy of Christ’ (2 Nephi 25:26) wherever I may be and with whomever I may find myself until the last breath of my life is gone. Book of Mormon Central. Moroni pleaded, ‘Yea, come unto Christ, and be perfected in him, and deny yourselves of all ungodliness; and if ye shall deny yourselves of all ungodliness, and love God with all your might, mind and strength, then is his grace sufficient for you, that by his grace ye may be perfect in Christ’ (Moroni 10:32). To a family member or trusted friend, explain the doctrine of grace as declared by the prophet Nephi. From chapters 25-26, give as many examples as you can of Nephi expounding on the themes from Lehi's vision of the tree of life. There seems to be a difference between Lehi’s words to those born in Jerusalem (addressed first in 2 Nephi 1) and his words to those not born in Jerusalem (addressed next in 2 Nephi 2-3), a difference Lehi seems to emphasize given that he organizes his final exhortations by birthplace rather than biological relation. (Joseph & Moses)] (Joseph & Moses)] According to Richard D. Anthony, somewhere along the line, somebody, be it scribe, translator, or mischief maker, did not want the world to have the "key of knowledge" even a "fulness of the scriptures." Elder Dallin H. Oaks of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles discussed the effects of grace and how grace is an important doctrine for members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints: “Some Christians accuse Latter-day Saints … of denying the grace of God through claiming they can earn their own salvation. The clue: the almost identical language of 2 Nephi 25:23 and 2 Nephi 10:24. What does the phrase “after all we can do” mean to you as it relates to being saved by grace? Elder Richard G. Scott of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles spoke of the need for the healing effects of the Atonement—not just for forgiveness of transgressions, but for all of life’s hardships: “[The Savior] has risen from the dead ‘with healing in his wings.’. Mine is a message of hope for you who yearn for relief from heavy burdens that have come through no conscious act of your own while you have lived a worthy life. In His plans for the human family, long ago God made ample provision for all mortal mistakes. Those who have based their beliefs on isolated verses and obscure passages, and who have wondered and murmured at seeming biblical conflicts, come to learn sound doctrine. 28 And now behold, my people, ye are a astiffnecked people; wherefore, I have spoken plainly unto you, that ye cannot misunderstand. 16:8. 20:11; Neh. About 588–570 B.C. 2 … In essence, Nephi is explaining that because Jesus alone possesses the power of salvation, we must believe in him and come to him. 2 Ne. Read 2 Nephi 25:26 and talk about why you “rejoice in Christ.” Ask the children to talk about how Jesus brings them joy. Even when they read it, they do not really read it, except with a mind-set which excludes miracles, including the miracle of the book’s coming forth by the ‘gift and power of God’” (“The Book of Mormon: A Great Answer to ‘the Great Question,’” in Monte S. Nyman and Charles D. Tate Jr., eds., The Book of Mormon: First Nephi, The Doctrinal Foundation [1988], 9). Elder Neal A. Maxwell of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles expanded on the singular event with Professor Anthon to include the general reaction of the learned of this world to the Book of Mormon: “This is not solely a reference to Professor Anthon, since the plural pronoun they is used [2 Nephi 27:20]. Ironically, some who acknowledge God are tried by His timing, globally and personally!” (in Conference Report, Apr. We see how much they talk about grace.

(see verse 14). The book was written around 600 B.C. Our Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ, also loves men and women equally. Christ will minister to the Nephites—Nephi foresees the destruction of his people—They will speak from the dust—The Gentiles will build up false churches and secret combinations—The Lord forbids men to practice priestcrafts. 18:4; Alma 33:19; Hel. It is likewise through the grace of the Lord that individuals, through faith in the atonement of Jesus Christ and repentance of their sins, receive strength and assistance to do good works that they otherwise would not be able to maintain if left to their own means. “It is through the grace of the Lord Jesus, made possible by his atoning sacrifice, that mankind will be raised in immortality, every person receiving his body from the grave in a condition of everlasting life. As we continue to study Nephi and Isaiah this week- there are several excellent topics for lessons. 2 Ne 24:1 For the Lord will have mercy on Jacob. 2 Nephi 25-30 [Nephi's Interpretation of Isaiah (2 Nephi 12-24)]: According to John Welch, Nephi's extensive quotation of the prophecies of Isaiah (Isaiah 2-14) is found in 2 Nephi 12-24. 17:6; Num. The reference suggests a mind-set of most of the learned of the world, who, by and large, do not take the Book of Mormon seriously. 2 Nephi 21:6–9; 22 The Millennium will be a time of peace and joy. See also John 1:12–17; Eph. 15 Wherefore, the aJews shall be bscattered among all nations; yea, and also cBabylon shall be destroyed; wherefore, the Jews shall be scattered by other nations.

B. This great mercy is in contrast to the destructions on the wicked which have been prophesied in the preceding chapter. With Healing in His Wings – 2 Nephi 25:13 (8/11/2017) They Are Plain unto All Those Who Are Filled with the Spirit of Prophecy – 2 Nephi 25:4 (8/10/2017) Until the Law Shall Be Fulfilled – 2 Nephi 25:30 (6/12/2016) We Labor Diligently – 2 Nephi 25:23 (4/17/2016) That Our Children May Know – 2 Nephi 25:23, 26 (3/13/2015) If you follow the steps to obtain a testimony, you do exactly the opposite to deny it or lose it. President James E. Faust (1920–2007) of the First Presidency challenged us to set aside prejudice and to labor as brothers and sisters in the kingdom: “I hope we can all overcome any differences of culture, race, and language. …, “… In my experience, no race or class seems superior to any other in spirituality and faithfulness. …. A dying testimony corresponds, in fact, to a forthcoming denial of Christ, our Savior and Redeemer. …. 13 Behold, they will acrucify him; and after he is laid in a bsepulchre for the space of cthree days he shall drise from the dead, with healing in his wings; and all those who shall believe on his name shall be saved in the kingdom of God. 17 And the Lord will set his hand again the second time to arestore his people from their lost and fallen state. We answer this accusation with the words of two Book of Mormon prophets. Hosea 13:4; Acts 4:12; 1 Jn. 31.8% or 33.5% A third of Isaiah is quoted (21/66 chapters and 433/1292 verses). It is truly the grace of Jesus Christ that makes salvation possible. 2 Ne. Jacob uses 2 Nephi 7:10-11 as a text to exhort his people to give heed to revelations and the truths of the gospel and not to rely upon their own wisdom (2 Nephi 9:28-43). These witnesses solemnly testify that they ‘have seen the plates which contain this record’ and ‘the engravings which are upon the plates.’ They witness that these writings ‘have been translated by the gift and power of God, for his voice hath declared it unto us.’ They testify, ‘We declare with words of soberness, that an angel of God came down from heaven, and he brought and laid before our eyes, that we beheld and saw the plates, and the engravings thereon; and we know that it is by the grace of God the Father, and our Lord Jesus Christ, that we beheld and bear record that these things are true’” (in Conference Report, Apr.

How does this happen? Elder M. Russell Ballard of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles added that priestcraft can occur both in the Church and from enemies to the Church: “Therefore, let us beware of false prophets and false teachers, both men and women, who are self-appointed declarers of the doctrines of the Church and who seek to spread their false gospel and attract followers by sponsoring symposia, books, and journals whose contents challenge fundamental doctrines of the Church. 4:2. (See 2 Ne. TG Jesus Christ, Savior. Our faith, our knowledge comes of the witness of a prophet in this dispensation who saw before him the great God of the universe and His Beloved Son, the resurrected Lord Jesus Christ. 27:25 (23–27); Ether 4:10 (8–10). 21 Wherefore, for this cause hath the Lord God promised unto me that these things which I awrite shall be kept and preserved, and handed down unto my seed, from generation to generation, that the promise may be fulfilled unto Joseph, that his seed should never bperish as long as the earth should stand. Let it be understood however, that they will not receive revelation for the guidance of the Church” (Church History and Modern Revelation, 2 vols. Isaiah in Book of Mormon . 2 Nephi 25:26–27—The D​eadness of the Law Versus Life in Christ Verses 26 and 27 continue the contrast between Christ as the source for remission of sins and the deadness of the law. Wherefore, men are free to choose liberty and eternal life, through the great Mediator of all men, or to choose captivity and death, according to the captivity and power of the devil; for he seeketh that all men might be miserable like unto himself . In addition to the Three Witnesses to the gold plates, there were eight more who saw the plates and were called to bear witness of them (see “The Testimony of Eight Witnesses” in the front of the Book of Mormon; see also the chart “The Witnesses of the Book of Mormon Plates,” which lists information about each of the witnesses, in the appendix on page 409). Whatever the cause, I testify that lasting relief is available on conditions established by the Lord” (in Conference Report, Apr. [1909], 509–10). Pay close attention to Nephi’s insights concerning the role of the Savior in bringing to pass the salvation of Heavenly Father’s children, the great evils facing those desiring to be righteous in the last days, and the blessings of the promised Restoration. Identify the different witnesses he refers to (see verses 12–14). President Boyd K. Packer, President of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles, shared his concern about the great problems in today’s society: “I know of nothing in the history of the Church or in the history of the world to compare with our present circumstances. 23 For we labor diligently to write, to apersuade our children, and also our brethren, to believe in Christ, and to be reconciled to God; for we know that it is by bgrace that we are saved, after all we can cdo. Another testament, speaking as a voice from the dust, came forth as a second witness to the reality and the divinity of the Son of God, the great Redeemer of the world. 25 Adam fell that men might be; and men are, that they might have joy.

Our Father’s work and glory is to bring to pass the immortality and eternal life of His children (see Moses 1:39). The written version of the sermon as we have it in 2 Nephi 25:4–32:6 is prefaced by a few personal, context-setting sentences in which Nephi explains, “Wherefore I write unto my people” (2 Nephi 25:3). His Atonement and His gospel are for all of God’s children. 10 Wherefore, it hath been told them concerning the destruction which should come upon them, immediately after my father left aJerusalem; nevertheless, they bhardened their hearts; and according to my prophecy they have been destroyed, save it be those which are ccarried away dcaptive into Babylon. TG Grace. Elder Neal A. Maxwell (1926–2004) of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles spoke of scriptures yet to be revealed, especially those from the Book of Mormon: “Many more scriptural writings will yet come to us, including those of Enoch (see D&C 107:57), all of the writings of the Apostle John (see Ether 4:16), the records of the lost tribes of Israel (see 2 Nephi 29:13), and the approximately two-thirds of the Book of Mormon plates that were sealed: ‘And the day cometh that the words of the book which were sealed shall be read upon the house tops; and they shall be read by the power of Christ; and all things shall be revealed unto the children of men which ever have been among the children of men, and which ever will be even unto the end of the earth’ (2 Nephi 27:11).
