THE BOOK OF NEPHI
THE SON OF NEPHI, WHO WAS THE SON OF HELAMAN
The coming forth of the Book of Mormon is a sign that the Lord has commenced to gather Israel and fulfill his covenants—Those who reject his latter-day revelations and gifts shall be cursed. Between A.D. 34 and 35
now behold, I say unto you that when the Lord shall see fit, in his wisdom, that these sayings shall acome
unto the Gentiles according to his word, then ye may know that the bcovenant
which the Father hath made with the children of Israel, concerning their restoration to the clands
of their inheritance, is already beginning to be fulfilled.
And ye may know that the words of the Lord, which have been spoken by the holy prophets, shall all be fulfilled; and ye need not say that the Lord adelays
his coming unto the children of Israel.
And ye need not imagine in your hearts that the words which have been spoken are vain, for behold, the Lord will remember his covenant which he hath made unto his people of the house of Israel.
And when ye shall see these sayings coming forth among you, then ye need not any longer spurn at the doings of the Lord, for the asword
of his bjustice
is in his right hand; and behold, at that day, if ye shall spurn at his doings he will cause that it shall soon overtake you.
unto him that bspurneth
at the doings of the Lord; yea, wo unto him that shall cdeny
the Christ and his works!
unto him that shall deny the revelations of the Lord, and that shall say the Lord no longer worketh by revelation, or by prophecy, or by bgifts
, or by tongues, or by healings, or by the power of the Holy Ghost!
Yea, and wo unto him that shall say at that day, to get again
, that there can be bno
miracle wrought by Jesus Christ; for he that doeth this shall become clike
unto the son of perdition, for whom there was no mercy, according to the word of Christ!
Yea, and ye need not any longer ahiss
, nor bspurn
, nor make game of the cJews
, nor any of the remnant of the house of Israel; for behold, the Lord remembereth his covenant unto them, and he will do unto them according to that which he hath sworn.
Therefore ye need not suppose that ye can turn the right hand of the Lord unto the left, that he may not execute judgment unto the fulfilling of the covenant which he hath made unto the house of Israel.
