"The Lord Hath Redeemed His Servant Jacob", 1 Nephi 20

1 Nephi 20, See Also Isaiah 48

As he has in ancient times, again the Lord has redeemed his people who serve Him. I myself feel that I can add my own life experiences as a witness to this truth.
"And they thirsted not; he led them through the deserts; he cased the waters to flow out of the rock for them; he clave the rock also and the waters gushed out.
"And notwithstanding he hath done all this, and greater also, there is no peace , saith the Lord, unto the wicked," (vs 21-22) .

Isaiah descriptively reminds of the many ways in which the Lord is mindful of us, His generosity and profound mercy. He also is quick to point out that even if we are favored of God, we cannot expect to be blessed of Him if we do not depend upon Him in righteousness, nor if we are not honest before Him.

These verses at the end are also a mandate to those that know to declare the dealings of the Lord.

  2. Paul,

    Thanks for visiting. Admittedly, the bulk of this study is immensely personal. I think this may be even more so the case as I delve into Isaiah, but then again, perhaps this is what brings the Book of Mormon to life for others also.

    Best,
    Brent
