2 Nephi 7: The Learned will accept God
See Also: Isaiah 50
“…thus saith the Lord: Have I put thee away, or have I cast thee off forever? For thus saith the Lord: Where is the bill of your mother’s divorcement? To whom have I put thee away, or to which of my creditors have I sold you? Yea, to whom have I sold you? Behold, for your iniquities have ye sold yourselves, and for your transgressions is your mother put away.” (2 Nephi 7:1)
Because of their own iniquities (the house of Israel) have they sold themselves because of their own transgressions. The Lord has the power to deliver and the power to destroy.
“The Lord God hath given me the tongue of the learned, that I should know how to speak a word in season unto thee, O house of Israel. When ye are weary he waketh morning by morning. He waketh mine ear to hear as the learned. The Lord God hath opened mine ear, and I was not rebellious, neither turned away back. I gave my back to the smiter, and my cheeks to them that plucked off the hair. I hid not my face from shame and spitting.” (2 Nephi 7:4-6)
Those who follow the Lord shall not be confounded in the Last Days, open your ears and eyes and turn not your back on the Lord.
