|14:1 And now it came to pass that Samuel, the
Lamanite, did prophesy a great many more things which
cannot be written.
|14:2 And behold, he said unto them: Behold, I give
unto you a sign; for five years more cometh, and behold,
then cometh the Son of God to redeem all those who shall
believe on his name.
|14:3 And behold, this will I give unto you for a
sign at the time of his coming; for behold, there shall
be great lights in heaven, insomuch that in the night
before he cometh there shall be no darkness, insomuch
that it shall appear unto man as if it was day.
|14:4 Therefore, there shall be one day and a night
and a day, as if it were one day and there were no night;
and this shall be unto you for a sign; for ye shall know
of the rising of the sun and also of its setting;
therefore they shall know of a surety that there shall be
two days and a night; nevertheless the night shall not be
darkened; and it shall be the night before he is born.
|14:5 And behold, there shall a new star arise, such
an one as ye never have beheld; and this also shall be a
sign unto you.
|14:6 And behold this is not all, there shall be many
signs and wonders in heaven.
|14:7 And it shall come to pass that ye shall all be
amazed, and wonder, insomuch that ye shall fall to the
|14:8 And it shall come to pass that whosoever shall
believe on the Son of God, the same shall have
|14:9 And behold, thus hath the Lord commanded me, by
his angel, that I should come and tell this thing unto
you; yea, he hath commanded that I should prophesy these
things unto you; yea, he hath said unto me: Cry unto this
people, repent and prepare the way of the Lord.
|14:10 And now, because I am a Lamanite, and have
spoken unto you the words which the Lord hath commanded
me, and because it was hard against you, ye are angry
with me and do seek to destroy me, and have cast me out
from among you.
|14:11 And ye shall hear my words, for, for this
intent have I come up upon the walls of this city, that
ye might hear and know of the judgments of God which do
await you because of your iniquities, and also that ye
might know the conditions of repentance;
|14:12 And also that ye might know of the coming of Jesus Christ, the Son of God, the Father of heaven and of
earth, the Creator of all things from the beginning; and
that ye might know of the signs of his coming, to the
intent that ye might believe on his name.
|14:13 And if ye believe on his name ye will repent of
all your sins, that thereby ye may have a remission of
them through his merits.
|14:14 And behold, again, another sign I give unto
you, yea, a sign of his death.
|14:15 For behold, he surely must die that salvation
may come; yea, it behooveth him and becometh expedient
that he dieth, to bring to pass the resurrection of the
dead, that thereby men may be brought into the presence
of the Lord.
|14:16 Yea, behold, this death bringeth to pass the
resurrection, and redeemeth all mankind from the first
death--that spiritual death; for all mankind, by the fall of Adam being cut off from the presence of the
Lord, are considered as dead, both as to things temporal
and to things spiritual.
|14:17 But behold, the resurrection of Christ redeemeth mankind, yea, even all mankind, and
bringeth them back into the presence of the Lord.
|14:18 Yea, and it bringeth to pass the condition of
repentance, that whosoever repenteth the same is not hewn
down and cast into the fire; but whosoever repenteth not
is hewn down and cast into the fire; and there cometh
upon them again a spiritual death, yea, a second death,
for they are cut off again as to things pertaining to
|14:19 Therefore repent ye, repent ye, lest by knowing
these things and not doing them ye shall suffer
yourselves to come under condemnation, and ye are brought
down unto this second death.
|14:20 But behold, as I said unto you concerning
another sign, a sign of his death, behold, in that day
that he shall suffer death the sun shall be darkened and
refuse to give his light unto you; and also the moon and
the stars; and there shall be no light upon the face of
this land, even from the time that he shall suffer death,
for the space of three days, to the time that he shall
rise again from the dead.
|14:21 Yea, at the time that he shall yield up the
ghost there shall be thunderings and lightnings for the
space of many hours, and the earth shall shake and
tremble; and the rocks which are upon the face of this
earth, which are both above the earth and beneath, which
ye know at this time are solid, or the more part of it is
one solid mass, shall be broken up;
|14:22 Yea, they shall be 1rent in twain, and shall ever after be found in
seams and in cracks, and in broken fragments upon the
face of the whole earth, yea, both above the earth and
|| Matthew 27:51:
...the veil of the temple was rent in twain...
|14:23 And behold, there shall be great tempests, and
there shall be many mountains laid low, like unto a
valley, and there shall be many places which are now
called valleys which shall become mountains, whose height
|14:24 And many highways shall be broken up, and many
cities shall become desolate.
|14:25 And many 1graves shall be opened, and shall yield up many
of their dead; and many saints shall appear unto many.
|| Matthew 27:52-53: And the graves were opened;
and many bodies of the saints which slept arose...and
appeared unto many.
|14:26 And behold, thus hath the angel spoken unto me;
for he said unto me that there should be thunderings and
lightnings for the space of many hours.
|14:27 And he said unto me that while the thunder and
the lightning lasted, and the tempest, that these things
should be, and that darkness should cover the face of the
whole earth for the space of three days.
|14:28 And the angel said unto me that many shall see
greater things than these, to the intent that they might
believe that these signs and these wonders should come to
pass upon all the face of this land, to the intent that
there should be no cause for unbelief among the children
|14:29 And this to the intent that whosoever will
believe might be saved, and that whosoever will not
believe, a righteous judgment might come upon them; and
also if they are condemned they bring upon themselves
their own condemnation.
|14:30 And now remember, remember, my brethren, that
whosoever perisheth, perisheth unto himself; and
whosoever doeth iniquity, doeth it unto himself; for
behold, ye are free; ye are permitted to act for
yourselves; for behold, God hath given unto you a
knowledge and he hath made you free.
|14:31 He hath given unto you that ye might know good
from evil, and he hath given unto you that ye might
choose life or death; and ye can do good and be restored
unto that which is good, or have that which is good
restored unto you; or ye can do evil, and have that which
is evil restored unto you.
