Scripture-Study List: Isaiah Forsees the Last Days

The Old-Testament prophet Isaiah foresaw the last days. He prophesied of the great apostasy, when the prophets and seers would be “covered.” After the apostasy, he also foresaw the coming forth of the Book of Mormon, a book that would be delivered to the unlearned boy-prophet Joseph because the intellectuals of the day would be too influenced by the “precept of man.” Isaiah prophesied that through Joseph a marvellous work and a wonder would be brought forth, the restoration of Christ’s ancient Church. Through that restoration and its associated missionary work, many have been brought to the light of the gospel. The meek and the poor rejoice in the Holy One of Israel.

Isaiah 29:10-14, 18-19:

  • For the LORD hath poured out upon you the spirit of deep sleep, and hath closed your eyes: the prophets and your rulers, the seers hath he covered.
  • And the vision of all is become unto you as the words of a book that is sealed, which men deliver to one that is learned, saying, Read this, I pray thee: and he saith, I cannot; for it is sealed:
  • And the book is delivered to him that is not learned, saying, Read this, I pray thee: and he saith, I am not learned.
