"All Flesh Shall Know," 2 Nephi 6:14-18

2 Nephi 6:14-18, See also Doctrine and Covenants 97:22-26

There are several points of engagement or, better said, doctrines that I am trying to find cohesiveness between this morning.
  1. In the end of times, the Lord will return "in power and great glory," (vs 14).
  2. At the Lord's return, there will be great destruction among the wicked. Zion shall be spared "if she observe to do all things whatsoever I have commanded her," (D & C 97:25)
  3. All people shall eventually know that "the Lord is God, the Holy One of Israel," whether by faith or by destruction (see vs 15, 18).
    • President Henry B. Eyering has commented recently, " some moment in the world to come, everyone you met in this life will know what you know now... They will know that you knew. And they will remember whether you offered them what someone had offered you." (“Let Us Raise Our Voice of Warning,” Liahona, Jan 2009, 2–7)
    • There seems to be coming some eventual point in the history of this world where all people will know God.
  4. God will deliver his covenant people (Jacob's paraphrasing of Isaiah here is slightly distinct in this regard, see vs 17, compare with Isaiah 49:25), or in other terms, all those that believe in him (see vs 14).
