Jacob Teaches of the Resurrection | 2 Nephi 6:5–11; 9 | Book of Mormon


I have great anxiety
for our people. I am desirous for the
welfare of their souls. Teach them the words of Isaiah, and speak unto them
for their sakes. The Lord has shown me that those who were at Jerusalem,
from whence we came, have been slain and
carried away captive. Nevertheless, the Lord
has shown unto me that they should return again. And He will be merciful
unto them, that when they shall come to
the knowledge of their Redeemer, they shall be gathered
together again to the lands of their inheritance. And there are many things
which have been spoken by Isaiah which may be likened unto you, because ye are of the
house of Israel. For the Lord God will
fulfil His covenants which He has made
unto His children; and for this cause the prophet
has written these things. I have read these things
that ye might know that He has covenanted
with all the house of Israel. I know that ye know that our
flesh must waste away and die; nevertheless, in our bodies
we shall see God. I do not understand. How can our flesh
waste away and die, but in our bodies
we shall see God? As death hath passed
upon all men, there must needs be a
power of resurrection, and the resurrection must
needs come unto man by reason of the fall; and the fall came by
reason of transgression; and because man became fallen they were cut off from
the presence of the Lord. Wherefore, there must needs
be an infinite atonement. O the wisdom of God,
His mercy and grace! For behold, if the flesh
should rise no more our spirits must become
subject to that angel who fell from before the
presence of the Eternal God, and became the devil,
to rise no more. O how great the goodness
of our God, who prepareth a way for our escape. Wherefore, death and hell
must deliver up their dead, and hell must deliver
up its captive spirits, and the grave must deliver
up its captive bodies, and the bodies and
the spirits of men will be restored one to the other; and it is by the power
of the resurrection of the Holy One of Israel. He cometh into the world
that He may save all men if they will hearken unto His voice; for behold, He suffereth
the pains of all men, yea, the pains of
every living creature, both men, women,
and children. And He suffereth this
that the resurrection might pass upon all men, that all might stand before Him
at the great and judgment day. And He commandeth all men
that they must repent, and be baptized in His name, having perfect faith in
the Holy One of Israel, or they cannot be saved
in the kingdom of God. Wo unto all those who
die in their sins; for they shall return to God,
and behold His face, and remain in their sins. Remember, to be
carnally-minded is death, and to be spiritually-minded
is life eternal. I would speak unto you more; but on the morrow I will
declare unto you the remainder of my words. -Amen.

    Infinite atonement, except on a personal level, implies a great injustice and logical fallacy.
    To be spiritually minded would never neglect the carnal.
    Endings may be beginnings, but they certainly do not necessitate each other.
    We are here in this world to accomplish success in consciousness and character for ourselves.

    Told to read Isaiah
    The Book of Isaiah: a complex poem

    He that repent of his sins and come unto the Lord, will be saved on the day of Resurrection. We have the Atonement of Jesus, because of our covenant. Amen.

    While being thankful this season, these videos are another thing to be thankful for.

    the Resurrection hasn't occurred yet – – the Atonement hasn't occurred yet
    – there's nothing to offer yet or any New Laws – – it's 560 BC…. same as in Judea
    – and what exactly are the Covenants with the House of Israel that's in the B of M text ?
