Moses Shows the Children of Israel the Brazen Serpent -by Judith Mehr

II Nephi 25: 20 And now, my brethren, I have spoken plainly that ye cannot err. And as the Lord God liveth that brought Israel up out of the land of Egypt, and gave unto Moses power that he should heal the nations after they had been bitten by the poisonous serpents, if they would cast their eyes unto the serpent (a representation of the crucified Jesus Christ) which he did raise up before them, and also gave him power that he should smite the rock and the water should come forth; yea, behold I say unto you, that as these things are true, and as the Lord God liveth, there is none other name given under heaven save it be this Jesus Christ, of which I have spoken, whereby man can be saved.
21 Wherefore, for this cause hath the Lord God promised unto me that these things which I write shall be kept and preserved, and handed down unto my seed, from generation to generation, that the promise may be fulfilled unto Joseph,(Joseph Who Was Sold Into Egypt) that his seed should never perish as long as the earth should stand. (emphasis and clarification added)
Nephi Crossing the Desert With His Family on the Way to their Promised Land -by Scott Snow

TODAY'S THEME is a quote from the Prophet Nephi, the fourth son of Father Lehi, the founder of the Nephite Nation* whose history is given in the Book of Mormon, Another Testament of Jesus Christ. *Their nation was named after this Nephi because he was a righteous prophet of the Lord Jesus Christ (who was yet to be born and was still a pre-mortal spirit but nonetheless was one of the Godhead with His father and with the Holy Ghost).

Nephi led his father, Lehi's people after Lehi's death.

In the next blog post more of the prophecies of the coming of Jesus Christ which were made through inspiration from above and recorded by the Prophet Nephi, will make up that blog post's TODAY'S THEME.

In the just previous blog post Nephi's Father, Lehi was quoted as he testified of Jesus Christ. There is one more quote of Father Lehi regarding the Gospel of Jesus Christ that I wish to present here. I copied this from my Post #1 which was published on: March 16, 2008, close to a year ago.
II Nephi 2:25 Adam fell that men might be; and men are, that they might have joy.
Verse 26 is also very instructive. Hopefully you have a Book of Mormon.
Several years ago I read a report of a scholarly man from the Near East, who was possibly Jewish, who became overwhelmed emotionally when he heard for the the first time ever, that verse read in a meeting of some kind at BYU where he was an invited guest. This verse no doubt helped him as it can help us, to come to grips with the true purpose of the Fall of Adam. Now I ask you, the reader of this blog, "Have you really read the Book of Mormon?" And if you have, have you heeded the exhortation of the Book of Mormon prophet, Moroni?
Moroni 10:4 And when ye shall receive these things, I would exhort you that ye would ask God, the Eternal Father, in the name of Christ, if these things are not true; and if ye shall ask with a sincere heart, with real intent, having faith in Christ, he will manifest the truth of it unto you, by the power of the Holy Ghost."
