Helaman 14 - By Dad
I was impressed with the numerous signs and wonders prophesied of by Samuel… So many how could one not believe? As we get closer to the Second Coming, there will also be many signs and wonders that will help us know that it is close…
As fun as it was to read about all the signs that would come to the Nephites…That wasn’t Samuels main message. He taught so well about the Atonement...
Why all the signs and wonders? vs. 12 “that ye might know of the signs of his coming, to the intent that ye might believe on his name”
If you do believe on his name? vs. 13 “ye will repent of all your sins, that thereby ye may have a remission of them through his merits”
How does this happen? vs. 15 “he surely must die that salvation may come”
After teaching about all signs and the about Christ, he finishes with: “ye are free; ye are permitted to act for yourselves” vs. 30
I like his style… he taught so well about the Atonement. His message had to be interesting to many listening as he talked about all the signs, including the graves opening up (vs. 25) and taught about the Savior, his coming and his redemption… But at the end of his intriguing and convincing message, he says essentially… “It’s up to you"
