Visions and Dreams, Continued

One Week of Studies
  1. Recite 1 Nephi 3:7.
    Read 1 Nephi 12.
    • In this chapter the angel shows Nephi what will happen to his posterity (the Nephites) and his brothers’ posterity (the Lamanites). The angel tells Nephi what the fountain of filthy water, the mists of darkness, and the large and spacious building represent. Write these on your picture or on the list of what Lehi saw.


  2. Recite Moroni 10:4-5.
    Read 1 Nephi 13:1-28.
    • This is more of Nephi’s vision.
    • Verses 4-9: Who is the founder of the great and abominable church? What are the desires of the great and abominable church? What kinds of people do you think belong to the great and abominable church?
    • Verse 12: What man is this verse talking about? Sing, “????”, CS, p. 118, verse 2.
    • Verse 17: What war in American history might this refer to?
    • Verses 20-23: What book is this talking about?
    • Verse 28: What did the great and abominable church do to the book?


  3. Recite the books in the Book of Mormon.
    Read 1 Nephi 13:29-42.
    • Verse 35: These writings are now in a book. What book?
    • Verse 41: Do you remember what book is the angel talking about when he says, "the record of thy seed"? What book is the angel talking about when he says, “the records of the twelve apostles of the Lamb”? What does it mean that, “they shall be established in one”?


  4. Recite 1 Nephi 3:7.
    Read 1 Nephi 14:1-12.
    • The angel showed Nephi our days.
    • Verse 1: What are stumbling blocks? Read Ether 12:27. Mark, copy, and memorize Ether 12:7.
    • Verses 10-12: A whore is a woman who will break the commandments in exchange for money. What church is this talking about? What church do you belong to?


  5. Recite Ether 12:27.
    Read 1 Nephi 14:13-30.
    • Verses 18-27: Who is this man that Nephi saw? Clues are in verses 20, 22, 23, & 27. We have the things that this man wrote. What is the name of his “book” (clue – it’s a book in the bible)?


  6. Recite Ether 12:27.
    Read 1 Nephi 15:1-18.
    • Verses 1-11: Nephi’s brothers argued about what Lehi had said. Why didn’t Nephi argue? How did Nephi gain his understanding? When you hear truth, do you argue about it, or do you seek for further understanding?


  7. Recite Ether 12:27.
    Read 1 Nephi 15:19-36.
    • Verses 21-29: What are the meanings of the tree, the rod of iron, the river of water, and the awful gulf? Write these on your picture or the list of what Lehi saw.
    • Verse 36: What does this verse say that the fruit is? Look at the d by the word gifts. Look at the corresponding footnote below. Look up D&C 14:7. What is the greatest of all the gifts of God? This is what the fruit represents. Write this on your picture or on the list of the things that Lehi saw.
