An Angel Appears to Lehi’s Sons | 1 Nephi 3:28–31 | Book of Mormon

We trusted the Lord, and we have lost everything! We will find another way. There is no other way! What do you propose now? Return to the house of that thief? They will kill us before
we get to the door! We must go back. We cannot disappoint
Father or the Lord. You are a fool! – You are a fool!
-Laman! Father is a fool! Why do ye smite your
younger brother with a rod? Know ye not that the Lord
hath chosen him to be a ruler over you, and this because of your iniquities? Behold, ye shall go up to Jerusalem again, and the Lord will deliver
Laban into your hands. How is it possible that the Lord
will deliver Laban into our hands? -He is a mighty man.
-He can command fifty, yea, even he can slay fifty; then why not us? Let us go up again unto Jerusalem. Let us be faithful in keeping the
commandments of the Lord. He is mightier than all the earth, then why not mightier than
Laban and his fifty, or even than his tens of thousands? Let us go up; let us be strong like unto Moses; for he truly spake unto the
waters of the Red Sea and they divided,
and our fathers came through, out of captivity, on dry ground. Nephi, this is not the same! An angel has spoken unto you; wherefore can ye doubt? Let us go up; the Lord is able to deliver us, even as our fathers.

  1. Ok I'm reading the BOM now just finished chapter 17 starting to get into building the ship out in the desert where there is no timber.

    I did notice back in chapter's the occurrence of a lot Angel's which brings into questions the reality of this story
    The book is littered with hundreds of "it came to pass" and other irrelevant wordage.

  2. In English, angel means anything from a genderless light being to a gendered being that can either be good or evil.
    No one witnesses the spiritual who is not capable of acting the best in response.

  3. I’ve always had a testimony of the Book of Mormon but these videos really bring it to life and you wonder, again, how Laman and Lemuel continually distrust the Lord. Faith in man and their power and not in God and His power.
