God’s Great and Marvelous Work

God’s performing his great and marvelous work “among the children of men” (2 Nephi 25:17; emphasis added)—among humanity at large—characterizes the great and marvelous work as a worldwide event from the outset. As an inherent part of that work, God’s “setting his hand the second time” to restore his people of the house of Israel […]

The Sealed Book of Isaiah

In this modern age, when materialism, idolatry, perversions, and telestial trivia seduce the masses, one can foresee how the endtime Gentiles’ all-is-well attitude of self-sufficiency, indifference, conceit, and hypocrisy might in the end evolve into priestcraft and the murderous persecution of souls who hold fast to the truth (3 Nephi 16:10). Like the Zoramites, who

The Fulness of Truth

Consistent with the “other books” that are to come forth that will fulfill his prediction, therefore (1 Nephi 13:39), Jesus goes on to say that “in the latter day shall the truth come unto Gentiles, that the fulness of these things shall be made known unto them” (3 Nephi 16:7; emphasis added). That “truth” and

A Great Division Among the Gentiles

Paradoxically, on the other hand, as noted, because additional scriptures come forth only when the Gentiles “believe” the Book of Mormon—including its interpretation of the words of Isaiah (3 Nephi 26:7–11)—some must believe and understand them in order for that to occur. If not, if belief doesn’t involve acting upon it, how can it be

God’s Sons/Servants Overcome Sin and Iniquity

Those who attain this second level of blessedness are freed from iniquity as well as sin. While we often lump “sins and iniquities” together as though they are the same thing, there exists a significant difference between the two. Persons on the Zion/Jerusalem level, for example, receive God’s forgiveness of their sins but must still

Three Years of Warning before Three Years of Judgment

According to Isaiah, God raises up his servant when the world is spiraling in a spiritual downturn—when God’s people are buying wholesale into the ideology of Babylon. Isaiah’s ministry was a type of that scenario. So was the time before the Flood, when wickedness and violence prevailed throughout the earth. At that time God destroyed

Babylon—A Worldwide Conglomerate

Isaiah’s Seven-Part Structure defines Babylon as a composite entity made up of individual entities of various kinds (Isaiah 13–23; 47). These consist of the nations of the world, aggressive world powers (like Assyria and its alliance), tyrants and oppressors, rulers and men of power, enemies and adversaries, proud kindred peoples, and the wicked of God’s

Descent Precedes Ascent

In Isaiah’s Seven-Part Structure, ascent to a higher level is preceded by a temporary descent. That descent consists of the test or tests of loyalty that God orchestrates for each individual. It involves a period of suffering and humiliation that serves as a personal trial of one’s faith; however, this is but the prelude to
