3 Essential Truths about Nephite Observance of the Law of Moses

First Truth:

The Nephites “strictly” kept the Law of Moses as indicated in 37 verses in the Book of Mormon, (see Alma 30:3, Mosiah 13:29-30,Jarom 1:5) and they did so with delight as it was seen by them as both symbolic of Christ and a means of coming unto Him. Occasionally even the Lamanites were known to “strictly” observe the law (Hel. 13:1).

Second Truth:

In “observing to keep the commandments of the Lord in all things, according to the Law of Moses” (2 Ne. 5:10) the Nephites would have necessarily observed all the feasts or “holy days” given to Moses by Jehovah. These are recorded in Exodus and Leviticus and are known as “holy convocations”. You will learn how beautifully these “rehearsals” typify the life and mission of Jesus Christ.

Third Truth:

It was absolutely essential for these Jewish Lehites to be brought to and given a land that would provide an abundance of all the plants and animals necessary to keep the Law of Moses, with its concomitant Holy Days or celebrated festivals.

A list of 10 essential items required by every Mosaic Law abiding people are revealed in this compelling presentation. Some of those essential items include lambs, goats, wheat and barley. These have never been found in the archaeological record of the Maya in Mesoamerica yet, in stark contrast, each has been verified in the archaeological record of the ancient Mound Builder civilization which flourished in the Heartland of North America during Book of Mormon time frames. Based on the latest archeological findings of this civilization, it can now be irrefutably shown that the Heartland of North America is the only location in the Western Hemisphere where all 10 essential items have been confirmed. Thus, this covenant and Promised Land is the only one capable of sustaining and enabling a Jewish population, such as the Nephites, to observe and honor their sacred rites and religion without being forced to use unauthorized substitutions that would have been utterly offensive to God. Learn about the symbolic significance of each of these 10 critical items in this inspirational presentation. url]https://bookofmormonevidence.org/jehova ... n-america/[/url]

In addition, I have been posting on the surrounding latter day history about the significance of the night Joseph and Emma Smith went to the Hill Cumorah to retrieve the plates (feast of the trumpets and the latter day final gathering of Israel), feast of the Passover Elijah returns to the Kirtland Temple, and other important fulfilling church history information. The Lord certainly has his timing perfect.

I have a question.
Is there any evidence that Lehi and his family landed in North America?
I would like to know concrete evidence such as physical evidence and revelations and statements from prophets and leaders.

Hi hideki, this is one of the very subjects I will be working on this next week. If I get time, I will also get into America being a Covenant Land for a Covenant People, where the gospel could be restored in it's fullness. I also have much, much more historical information on western New York being the final area of the Nephites and Jaredites and how they got there. Lastly I have some more really great information on what look like ancient temple locations around the New York area (they built a number of them). I better bookmark this to remind myself of all of this information. It may take about a month to post it all, I will do most of it on new threads so you can find it easily.

While you are waiting here is something important from Joseph Fielding Smith'

SPECULATION ABOUT BOOK OF MORMON GEOGRAPHY. Within recent years there
has arisen among certain students of the Book of Mormon a theory to the effect that within
the period covered by the Book of Mormon, the Nephites and Lamanites were confined
almost entirely within the borders of the territory comprising Central America and the
southern portion of Mexico -- the isthmus of Tehauntepec probably being the "narrow neck"
of land spoken of in the Book of Mormon rather than the isthmus of Panama.232. 16
This theory is founded upon the assumption that it was impossible for the colony of Lehi's to
multiply and fill the hemisphere within the limits of 1,000 years, or from the coming of Lehi
from Jerusalem to the time of the destruction of the Nephites at the Hill Cumorah. Moreover,
they claim that the story in the Book of Mormon of the migrations, building of cities, and the
wars and contentions, preclude the possibility of the people spreading over great distances
such as we find within the borders Of North and South America.
EARTH POPULATED RAPIDLY. If we are willing to accept the Bible record, which is
confirmed by the Doctrine and Covenants, the entire civilization of the earth was destroyed
in the flood except Noah and his family.232. 17 Moreover, this destruction took place less
than 5,000 years ago, and today the population of the earth, notwithstanding wars and
destructions, is estimated at over 2,000,000,000 souls.
The population of Europe, based upon the best records available, is vastly increased over
that at the time of the discovery of America; yet upon this hemisphere are to be found
hundreds of millions of people, descendants of European and Asiatic ancestors who knew
nothing of this land before the discovery by Columbus. The rapid increase of posterity is
known to every genealogist who has traced the record of the early settlers in this western
country.
LOCALE OF CUMORAH, RAMAH, AND RIPLIANCUM. This modernistic theory of
necessity, in order to be consistent, must place the waters of Ripliancum and the Hill
Cumorah some place within the restricted territory of Central America, notwithstanding the
teachings of the Church to the contrary for upwards of 100 years. Because of this theory
some members of the Church have become confused and greatly disturbed in their faith in
the Book of Mormon. It is for this reason that evidence is here presented to show that it is
not only possible that these places could be located as the Church has held during the past
century, but that in very deed such is the case.
It is known that the Hill Cumorah where the Nephites were destroyed is the hill where the
Jaredites were also destroyed. This hill was known to the Jaredites as Ramah. It was
approximately near to the waters of Ripliancum, which the Book of Ether says, "by
593
interpretation, is large, or to exceed all."233. 18 Mormon adds: "And it came to pass that we
did march forth to the land of Cumorah, and we did pitch our tents round about the hill
Cumorah; and it was in a land of many waters, rivers, and fountains; and here we had hope
to gain advantage over the Lamanites." 233. 19
EARLY BRETHREN LOCATE CUMORAH IN WESTERN NEW YORK. It must be
conceded that this description fits perfectly the land of Cumorah in New York, as it has been
known since the visitation of Moroni to the Prophet Joseph Smith, for the hill is in the
proximity of the Great Lakes and also in the land of many rivers and fountains. Moreover,
the Prophet Joseph Smith himself is on record, definitely declaring the present hill called
Cumorah to be the exact hill spoken of in the Book of Mormon. 234. 20
Further, the fact that all of his associates from the beginning down have spoken of it as the
identical hill where Mormon and Moroni hid the records, must carry some weight. It is
difficult for a reasonable person to believe that such men as Oliver Cowdery, Brigham
Young, Parley P. Pratt, Orson Pratt, David Whitmer, and many others, could speak
frequently of the Spot where the Prophet Joseph Smith obtained the plates as the Hill
Cumorah, and not be corrected by the Prophet, if that were not the fact. That they did speak
of this hill in the days of the Prophet in this definite manner is an established record of

history.
OLIVER COWDERY PLACES CUMORAH IN WESTERN NEW YORK. The first
reference of this kind is found in the Messenger and Advocate, a paper published by the
Church in 1834-5. In a brief history of the rise of the Church prepared by Oliver Cowdery,
he makes reference to this particular spot in the following words:
"By turning to the 529th and 530th pages of the Book of Mormon you will read Mormon's
account of the last great struggle as they were encamped round this hill Cumorah. 234. 21 In
this valley fell the remaining strength and pride of a once powerful people, the Nephites --
once so highly favored of the Lord, but at that time in darkness, doomed to suffer
extermination by the hand of their barbarous and uncivilized brethren. From the top of this
hill, Mormon, with a few others, after the battle, gazed with horror upon the mangled
remains of those who, the day before, were filled with anxiety. hope, or doubt. A few had
fled to the south, who were hunted down by the victorious party, and all who would not deny
the Savior and his religion, were put to death. Mormon himself, according to the record of
his son Moroni, was also slain.
"But a long time previous to this national disaster it appears, from his own account, he
foresaw approaching destruction. In fact, if he perused the records of his fathers, which were
in his possession, he could have learned that such would be the case. Alma, who lived before
the coming of the Messiah, prophesied this. He, however, by divine appointment, abridged
from those records, in his own style and language, a short account of the more important and
prominent items, from the days of Lehi to his own time, after which he deposited, as he says,
594
on the 529th page, 235. 22 all the records in this same hill, Cumorah, and after gave his small
record to his son Moroni, who, as appears from the same, finished, after witnessing the
extinction of his people as a nation. . . .
HILL RAMAH IN WESTERN NEW YORK. "This hill, by the Jaredites, was called Ramah;
by it, or around it, pitched the famous army of Coriantumr their tents. Coriantumr was the
last king of the Jaredites. The opposing army were to the west, and in this same valley, and
near by, from day to day, did that mighty race spill their blood, in wrath. contending, as it
were brother against brother, and father against son. In this same spot, in full view from the
top of this same hill, one may gaze with astonishment upon the ground which was twice
covered with the dead and dying of our fellowmen. . . .
"In this vale lie commingled, in one mass of ruin, the ashes of thousands, and in this vale
was destined to consume the fair forms and vigorous systems of tens of thousands of the
human race -- blood mixed with blood, flesh with flesh, bones with bones, and dust with
dust." 236. 23
PROPHET APPROVES OLIVER COWDERY'S VIEWS. The quibbler might say that this
statement from Oliver Cowdery is merely the opinion of Oliver Cowdery and not the
expression of the Prophet Joseph Smith. It should be remembered that these letters in which
these statements are made were written at the Prophet's request and under his personal
supervision. Surely, under these circumstances, he would not have permitted an error of this
kind to creep into the record without correction.
At the commencement of these historical letters is found the following: "That our narrative
may be correct, and particularly the introduction, it is proper to inform our patrons, that our
Brother J. Smith Jr., has offered to assist us. Indeed, there are many items connected with the
fore part of this subject that render his labor indispensable. With his labor and with authentic
documents now in our possession, we hope to render this a pleasing and agreeable narrative,
well worth the examination and perusal of the saints."236. 24
Later, during the Nauvoo period of the Church, and again under the direction of the Prophet
Joseph Smith, these same letters by Oliver Cowdery, were published in the Times and
Seasons, without any thought of correction had this description of the Hill Cumorah been an
error. 236. 25
TESTIMONY OF DAVID WHITMER TO HILL CUMORAH. Another testimony of interest
is that of David Whitmer given to Elders Orson Pratt and Joseph F. Smith in September
1878, when they paid him a visit at his home in Richmond. To these brethren he said: "When
I was returning to Fayette, with Joseph and Oliver, all of us riding in the wagon. Oliver and I
on an old- fashioned wooden spring seat and Joseph behind us -- while traveling along in a
clear open space, a very pleasant, nice-looking old man suddenly appeared by the side of our
wagon and saluted us with, 'Good morning, it is very warm,' at the same time wiping his face
595
or forehead with his hand. We returned the salutation, and, by a sign from Joseph, I invited
him to ride if he was going our way; but he said very pleasantly, 'No, I am going to
Cumorah.' This name was something new to me; I did not know what Cumorah meant. We
all gazed at him and at each other, and as I looked around inquiringly of Joseph, the old man
instantly disappeared, so that I did not see him again."
Joseph F. Smith asked: "Did you notice his appearance?"
David Whitmer: "I should think I did. He was, I should think, about five feet eight or nine
inches tall and heavy set. . . . His hair and beard were white, like Brother Pratt's, but his
beard was not so heavy. I also remember that he had on his back a sort of knapsack with
something in, shaped like a book."237. 26
"GLAD TIDINGS FROM CUMORAH." Who can read the words of Joseph Smith as
recorded in section 128 of the Doctrine and Covenants and not feel that he had reference to
the Hill Cumorah in western New York?
"And again, what do we hear? Glad tidings from Cumorah! Moroni, an angel from heaven,
declaring the fulfilment of the prophets -- the book to be revealed. A voice of the Lord in the
wilderness of Fayette, Seneca county, declaring the three witnesses to bear record of the
book!" 237. 27
While in this statement it is not positively declared that the Hill Cumorah is the place where
the plates were obtained, yet the implication that such is the case is overwhelming. Moroni
declaring from Cumorah the book to be revealed!
JOSEPH SMITH LOCATES CUMORAH IN WESTERN NEW YORK. Perhaps this matter
could rest at this point, but the question of the territory now embraced within the United
States having been in possession of Nephites and Lamanites before the death of Mormon,
carries some weight in the determining of this matter. In the tight of revelation it is absurd
for anyone to maintain that the Nephites and Lamanites did not possess this northern land.
While Zion's camp was marching on the way to Jackson County, near the bank of the Illinois
River they came to a mound containing the skeleton of a man. The history of this incident is
as follows:
"The brethren procured a shovel and a hoe, and removing the earth to the depth of about one
foot, discovered the skeleton of a man, almost entire, and between his ribs the stone point of
a Lamanitish arrow, which evidently produced his death. Elder Burr Riggs retained the
arrow. The contemplation of the scenery around us produced peculiar sensations in our
bosoms; and subsequently the visions of the past being opened to my understanding by the
Spirit of the Almighty, I discovered that the person whose skeleton was before us was a
white Lamanite, a large, thickset man, and a man of God. His name was Zelph. He was a
warrior and chieftain under the great prophet Onandagus, who was known from the Hill
596
Cumorah, or eastern sea to the Rocky Mountains. The curse was taken from Zelph, or at
least, in part -- one of his thigh bones was broken by a stone flung from a sling, while in
battle, years before his death. He was killed in battle by the arrow found among his ribs,
during the last great struggle of the Lamanites and Nephites." 238. 28
HEBER C. KIMBALL TELLS OF DEATH OF ZELPH. Elder Heber C. Kimball who was
present recorded the following in his journal: "While on our way we felt anxious to know
who the person was who had been killed by that arrow. It was made known to Joseph that he
had been an officer who fell in battle, in the last destruction among the Lamanites, and his
name was Zelph. This caused us to rejoice much, to think that God was so mindful of us as
to show these things to his servant. Brother Joseph had inquired of the Lord, and it was made
known in a vision." 239. 29
ANCIENT CITY OF MANTI IN MISSOURI. The following is also taken from the history
of the travels of the Kirtland Camp: "The camp passed through Huntsville, in Randolph
County, which has been appointed as one of the stakes of Zion. and is the ancient site of the
City of Manti, and pitched tents at Dark Creek, Salt Licks, seventeen miles. It was reported
to the camp that one hundred and ten men had volunteered from Randolph and gone to Far
West to settle difficulties." 239. 30
The following account of the same event is taken from the daily journal of the Kirtland
Camp, and was written by Samuel D. Tyler: "September 25, 1838. We passed through
Huntsville, Co. seat of Randolph Co, Pop. 450, and three miles further we bought 32 bu. of
corn off one of the brethren who resides in this place. There are several of the brethren round
about here and this is the ancient site of the City of Manti, which is spoken of in the Book of
Mormon and this is appointed one of the Stakes of Zion, and it is in Randolph County,
Missouri, three miles west of the county seat." 239. 31
NEPHITE AND JAREDITE WARS IN WESTERN NEW YORK. In the face of this
evidence coming from the Prophet Joseph Smith, Oliver Cowdery, and David Whitmer, we
cannot say that the Nephites and Lamanites did not possess the territory of the United States
and that the Hill Cumorah is in Central America. Neither can we say that the great struggle
which resulted in the destruction of the Nephites took place in Central America. If Zelph, a
righteous man, was fighting under a great prophet-general in the last battles between the
Nephites and Lamanites; if that great prophet-general was known from the Rocky Mountains
to "the Hill Cumorah or eastern sea," then some of those battles, and evidently the final
battles did take place within the borders of what is now the United States.
There were no righteous prophets, save the Three Nephites, after the death of Moroni, and
we learn that Zelph was slain during one of these battles during the great last struggle
between the Nephites and Lamanites and was buried near the Illinois River.
In the Book of Mormon story the Lamanites were constantly crowding the Nephites back
597
towards the north and east. If the battles in which Zelph took part were fought in the country
traversed by the Zion's Camp, then we have every reason to believe from what is written in
the Book of Mormon, that the Nephites were forced farther and farther to the north and east
until they found themselves in the land of Ripliancum, which both Ether and Mormon
declare to us was the land of Ramah or Cumorah, a land of "many waters," which "by
interpretation, is large, or to exceed all."240. 32
This being true, what would be more natural then that Moroni, like his father Mormon,
would deposit the plates in the land where the battles came to an end and the Nephites were
destroyed? This Moroni says he did, and from all the evidence in the Book of Mormon,
augmented by the testimony of the Prophet Joseph Smith, these final battles took place in the
territory known as the United States and in the neighborhood of the Great
Lakes and hills of Western New York. And here Moroni found the resting place for the
sacred instruments which had been committed to his care. 241. 33
IMPRESSIONS AT CUMORAH
LORD LED PROPHET'S FAMILY TO CUMORAH-LAND. As I stood upon these sacred
places I had peculiar feelings which I cannot describe. I always do have such feelings; I have
visited the Hill Cumorah and the Sacred Grove on other occasions. As I stood at the Smith
home, I thought of the early struggles of the family, and wondered what means the Lord
might have used to get them to move from Vermont or New Hampshire, if they had not been
forced from these states by poverty. Their poverty was not the result of indolence, as the
wicked have proclaimed, but the poverty and reverses of Providence, sent to give experience
and to lead the family to a better land where the Lord could perform his work through the
youthful Seer, yet to be raised up.
When the Smith family arrived in Palmyra they immediately bargained for the purchase of
100 acres of land. This is known today as the Joseph Smith Farm and is in the possession of
the Church. In that day the land was covered with a heavy growth of timber. This had to be
removed before the land could be planted and crops raised to pay for the farm. As I stood
upon this ground, I thought of the struggles this entailed. My grandfather, Hyrum Smith, and
his older brother, Alvin, were called upon to do much of this laborious task. The younger
brother, Joseph, was too young at that time to give much help. being only about 10 years of
age. Nevertheless he was called to assist, and a few years later -- at the time of the vision --
was under the necessity of performing labor required of a man.
The house which stands upon the farm was built by these sons of Joseph Smith, Senior; but
it is not the house, as many have been told, in which the Angel Moroni appeared to Joseph
Smith. The older house has long since disappeared. and stood several rods to the north of the
present home. After the proclamation of the Angel's visit persecution raged, and the family
were not permitted long to enjoy the land which had cost them so much to prepare, because
598
of others, who, through wickedness, for a season reaped the fruits thereof.
CUMORAH ONCE SITE OF CARNAGE AND DESTRUCTION. As I stood upon the
summit of the Hill Cumorah, in the midst of a vast multitude, only a few of whom belonged
to the Church, I tried to picture the scenes of former days. Here were assembled vast armies
filled with bitterness and bent on destruction. I thought of the great promises the Lord had
made through his prophets concerning those who should possess this choice land, and how
those promises were not fulfilled because the people violated his commandments. Here a
people perished because of their extreme wickedness.
There must be something in the destiny of things that would cause a repetition of this terrible
scene on the same spot many centuries later. I reflected and wondered if this unhappy time
would ever come when another still mightier people would incur the wrath of God because
of wickedness and likewise perish. If so, would this same spot witness their destruction? I
thought of the prophets, Ether, Mormon, Moroni, and tried to realize the sadness of their
feelings as they witnessed the mad onrushing of their peoples to annihilation.
IMPORTANCE OF CUMORAH UNKNOWN TO WORLD. We sang the song, prepared for
this celebration,242. 34 Zion-land, and I entered heartily, sincerely. into the spirit of the song:
God bless our Zion-land,
Firm may she ever stand,
Through storm and night;
When the wild tempests rave,
Ruler of wind and wave,
Do Thou Thy Zion save
By thy great might!
For her our prayers shall rise
To God above the skies,
With Him we stand;
Thou who art ever nigh,
Guarding with watchful eye,
To Thee aloud we cry,
God save Thy land.
Here it was that Moroni, commanded by the Lord, hid up the sacred records of his people.
Here it was. 1,400 years later, that he, then a resurrected being, came to Joseph Smith and
committed these same records to the young man's care. At the time of the Prophet's first visit
to the hill, it was covered with trees; today (1923) it is stripped and bare, save for the grass
which grows abundantly. This former scene of strife and bloodshed, where two nations
perished, later the sacred repository of ancient records, today is the abode of peaceful cattle,
reclining and chewing the cud. The many millions of inhabitants of the land, who, because
599
they love darkness rather than light. will not believe, and although an angel has declared it
unto them, they appear to have no more thought concerning the wonderful events that have
taken place near and on the Hill Cumorah, than have these cattle.243. 35

Ask and you shall receive BroJones, also I have enjoyed your past posts. https://bookofmormonevidence.org/jehova ... n-america/

Because you are so awesome you get a bonus. Sheep and lambs are mentioned 77 times in the Book of Mormon. Many references are figurative, but as Alma 5:59 indicates, the people were familiar with sheep and did tend to them. William Richie, an archaeologist, reported that he found remains of domestic sheep in western New York dating to 100 A.D., about 30 miles east of the Hill Cumorah.

Yes, very useful write-up. Brief.
Is there a video or book by Amberli Nelson with this title, or on this subject?
