"The Lord Alone Shall Be Exalted," 2 Nephi 12:4-22

2 Nephi 12:4-22

The remainder of this chapter is a reminder to the house of Jacob (and to me) that in the end "the Lord alone shall be exalted," (2 Nephi 12:17). All that man aspires to is of no worth in the end. These verses are very descriptive in depicting in great details that last day with abundant use of local symbolism that has great meaning in the regions surrounding Jerusalem. All the vain labors of man throughout all time will eventually be counted as nothing before the Lord in the end of times.

This is thus a powerful reminder that the efforts expended in the work of the Lord are of such greater worth to man.
