Nephi's Prophesies, Continued

One Week of Studies
  1. Recite 2 Nephi 2:25.
    Read 2 Nephi 28:1-18.
    • This is about false churches in our day today. Can you spot the lies?
    • Verse 2: The book mentioned here is the Book of Mormon. Mark this in your scriptures.
    • Verses 7-9: Mark, copy, and memorize these verses. Do you ever feel like it’s not bad to do something wrong, as long as it is only a little wrong? This is how Satan tricks you and traps you. Write what these verses mean to you.

  2. Recite 2 Nephi 28:7-9.
    Read 2 Nephi 28:19-32.
    • Verses 19-22: This talks about three tools the devil uses to keep people from choosing the right. The first is anger. Has your anger ever lead you to do something wrong? The second is carnal security. Do you ever feel like your life is OK and you forget to turn to the Lord? The third is flattery. Have you ever been confused by things that sound good, but go against what is right and true?
    • Verse 30: The Lord will teach us a little at a time. When we learn one thing, he will teach us more. If we think we are smart enough and don’t need to learn more, we will start to forget the things we already learned.
    • Verse 31: Remember we should trust God more than we trust people and things.

  3. Recite 2 Nephi 28:7-9.
    Read 2 Nephi 29.
    • This chapter is about the Last Days when the Gospel is restored.
    • Verse 2: This is about the Book of Mormon.
    • Verse 3: People reject the Book of Mormon because they believe they only need to Bible.
    • Verses 7-14: This is a good explanation of why we need more than just the Bible.

  4. Recite 2 Nephi 28:7-9.
    Read 2 Nephi 30.
    • Verse 3: This is talking about the Book of Mormon and the Last Days.
    • Verse 10: This is about the Second Coming of Jesus Christ.
    • Verses 12-18: This is about the Millennium.

  5. Recite 2 Nephi 28:7-9.
    Read 2 Nephi 31.
    • Verse 2: Nephi says that he will now teach the most simple, basic principles of the doctrine of Christ. Notice what these basic principles are as you read the rest of the chapter. Which Article of Faith also teaches the same principles?
    • Verse 4: Who is this prophet? Write it in the margin of your scriptures.
    • Verses 5-10: This is why Jesus was baptized.
    • Verse 13: The baptism of fire is receiving the gift of the Holy Ghost. What does it mean to speak with the tongue of angels?
    • Verse 19: After a person is baptized, do they get to relax, knowing that they will receive Eternal Life?
    • Verse 20: What does it mean to press forward? What is steadfastness? What is a perfect brightness of hope? The love of God is charity. What is charity? Do you feast on the words of Christ? Enduring to the end is a lot more than staying out of trouble. It is actively working for the Lord.

  6. Recite 2 Nephi 28:7-9.
    Read 2 Nephi 32.
    • Verse 1: Do you remember what it means to “enter in by the way”? That’s what you read about in the last chapter.
    • Verse 3: Mark, copy, and memorize this verse. Write what it means to you.
    • Verses 3-5: Wouldn’t it be nice to know what is the right thing to so in all situations? You can. These verses tell you how.
    • Verse 7: Stiffneckedness is stubbornness. Are you ever wicked, ignorant and stubborn, or do you search for truth and knowledge?
    • Verses 8 & 9: Mark, copy, and memorize these verses. Have you ever thought about praying, but didn’t really feel like doing it? This was Satan’s influence on you. When should you pray? Write what these verses mean to you.
    Read 2 Nephi 33.
    • Nephi is talking directly to you, the reader.
    • Verse 3: Nephi loved his brothers so much that he cried for them when they were disobedient.
