SEALED PORTION TO COME FORTH DURING THE MILLENNIUM

by Dan Clute

Pay particular attention to the term “all things” and when all things are to be revealed.

1Nephi 3:249 And also others who have been, to them hath he shown all things, and they have written them; 3:250 And they are sealed up to come forth in their purity according to the truth which is in the Lamb, in the own due time of the Lord, unto the house of Israel.

Ether 1:87-93 1:87 And behold, when ye shall come unto me, ye shall write them and shall seal them up, that no one can interpret them; for ye shall write them in a language that they can not be read. 1:88 And behold, these two stones will I give unto thee, and ye shall seal them up also, with the things which ye shall write. 1:89 For behold, the language which ye shall write, I have confounded; wherefore I will cause in mine own due time that these stones shall magnify to the eyes of men, these things which ye shall write. 1:90 And when the Lord had said these words, he shewed unto the Brother of Jared all the inhabitants of the earth which had been, and also all that would be; and the
Lord withheld them not from his sight, even unto the ends of the earth; 1:91 For the Lord had said unto him in times before, that if he would believe in him, that he could shew unto him all things -- it should be shewn unto him; therefore the Lord could not withhold anything from him; for he knew that the Lord could shew him all things. 1:92 And the Lord said unto him, Write these things and seal them up, and I will shew them in mine own due time unto the children of men. 1:93 And it came to pass that the Lord commanded him that he should seal up the two stones which he had received, and shew them not, until the Lord should shew them unto the children of men.

Ether 1:99-101 1:99 And he commanded me that I should seal them up; and he also hath commanded that I should seal up the interpretation thereof; wherefore I have sealed up the interpreters, according to the commandment of the Lord. 1:100 For the Lord said unto me, They shall not go forth unto the Gentiles until the day that they shall repent of their iniquity, and become clean before the Lord; 1:101 And in that day that they shall exercise faith in me, saith the Lord, even as the Brother of Jared did, that they may become sanctified in me, then will I manifest unto them the things which the Brother of Jared saw, even to the unfolding unto them all my revelations, ( or “all things”) saith Jesus Christ, the Son of God, the Father of the heavens and of the earth, and all things that in them are.

2 Nephi 11:125-127 11:125 And it shall come to pass, that the Lord God shall bring forth unto you the words of a book, and they shall be the words of them which have slumbered. 11:126 And behold the book shall be sealed: and in the book shall be a revelation from God, from the beginning of the world to the ending thereof. 11:127 Wherefore, because of the things which are sealed up, the things which are sealed, shall not be delivered in the day of the wickedness and abominations of the people.

2 Nephi 11:130-132 11:130 For the book shall be sealed by the power of God, and the revelation which was sealed, shall be kept in the book until the own due time of the Lord, that they may come forth: for, behold, they reveal all things from the foundation of the world unto the end thereof. 11:131 And the day cometh that the words of the book which were sealed, shall be read upon the housetops; and they shall be read by the power of Christ; 11:132 And all things shall be revealed unto the children of men which ever have been among the children of men, and which ever will be, even unto the end of the earth.

11:144 Wherefore, when thou hast read the words which I have commanded thee, and obtained the witnesses which I have promised unto thee, then shalt thou seal up the book again, and hide it up unto me, that I may preserve the words which thou hast not read, until I shall see fit in mine own wisdom, to reveal all things unto the children of men.

2 Nephi 12:91-98 12:91 And righteousness shall be the girdle of his loins, and faithfulness the girdle of his reins. 12:92 And then shall the wolf dwell with the lamb, and the leopard shall lie down with the kid; and the calf, and the young lion, and the fatling, together; and a little child shall lead them. 12:93 And the cow and the bear shall feed; their young ones shall lie down together, and the lion shall eat straw like the ox. 12:94 And the sucking child shall play on the hole of the asp, and the weaned child shall put his hand on the cockatrice's den. 12:95 They shall not hurt or destroy in all my holy mountain; for the earth shall be full of the knowledge of the Lord, as the waters cover the sea. 12:96 Wherefore, the things of all nations shall be made known: yea, all things shall be made known unto the children of men. 12:97 There is nothing which is secret, save it shall be revealed; there is no work of darkness, save it shall be made manifest in the light; and there is nothing which is sealed upon the earth, save it shall be loosed. 12:98 Wherefore, all things which have been revealed unto the children of men, shall at that day be revealed;

2 Nephi 12:91-95 for the time that “all things shall be made known unto the children of men...shall at that day be revealed.”Referring to the Millennial Reign of Christ.

2 Nephi 12:95 They shall not hurt or destroy in all my holy mountain; for the earth shall be full of the knowledge of the Lord, as the waters cover the sea.

Habakkuk 2:14 For the earth shall be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the Lord, as the waters cover the sea.

D&C 98:5b And every corruptible thing, both of man, or of the beasts of the field, or of the fowls of heaven, or of the fish of the sea, that dwell upon all the face of the earth, shall be consumed; and also, that of element shall melt with fervent heat; and all things shall become new, that my knowledge and glory may dwell upon all the earth.

Read the verses below for the context of when the “the earth shall be full of the knowledge of the Lord, as the waters cover the sea.”

D&C 98:5a Behold, it is my will, that all they who call on my name, and worship me according to mine everlasting gospel, should gather together and stand in holy places, and prepare for the revelation which is to come when the veil of the covering of my temple, in my tabernacle, which hideth the earth, shall be taken off, and all flesh shall see me together. 98:5b And every corruptible thing, both of man, or of the beasts of the field, or of the fowls of heaven, or of the fish of the sea, that dwell upon all the face of the earth, shall be consumed; and also, that of element shall melt with fervent heat; and all things shall become new, that my knowledge and glory may dwell upon all the earth.
98:5c And in that day the enmity of man, and the enmity of beasts; yea, the enmity of all flesh shall cease from before my face. 98:5d And in that day whatsoever any man shall ask it shall be given unto him. 98:5e And in that day Satan shall not have power to tempt any man. And there shall be no sorrow because there is no death. 98:5f In that day an infant shall not die until he is old, and his life shall be as the age of a tree, and when he dies he shall not sleep (that is to say in the earth), but shall be changed in the twinkling of an eye, and shall be caught up, and his rest shall be glorious. 98:5g Yea, verily I say unto you, In that day when the Lord shall come he shall reveal all things; things which have passed, and hidden things which no man knew; things of the earth by which it was made, and the purpose and the end thereof; things most precious; things that are above, and things that are beneath; things that are in the earth, and upon the earth, and in heaven.

The above verses in D&C 98:5a describes the second coming of Jesus Christ. 98:b-f
describes the Millennial Reign, 98:5g states “In that day when the Lord shall come he shall reveal all things and then describes what those things are which I believe is a description of what is in the sealed portion of the Book of Mormon.

Ether 5:21 And after the Brother of Jared had beheld the finger of the Lord, because of the promise which the Brother of Jared had obtained by faith, the Lord could not withhold anything from his sight; wherefore he shewed him all things, for he could no longer be kept without the vail.

Isaiah 29:11 And it shall come to pass, that the Lord God shall bring forth unto you the words of a book; and they shall be the words of them which have slumbered. 29:12 And behold, the book shall be sealed; and in the book shall be a revelation from God, from the beginning of the world to the ending thereof. 29:13 Wherefore because of the things which are sealed up, the things which are sealed shall not be delivered in the day of the wickedness and abominations of the people. Wherefore, the book shall be kept from them.29:14 But the book shall be delivered unto a man, and he shall deliver the words of
the book, which are the words of those who have slumbered in the dust; and he shall
deliver these words unto another, but the words that are sealed he shall not deliver,
neither shall he deliver the book. 29:15 For the book shall be sealed by the power of God, and the revelation which was sealed shall be kept in the book until the own due time of the Lord, that they may come forth; for behold, they reveal all things from the foundation of the world unto the end thereof. 29:16 And the day cometh, that the words of the book which were sealed shall be read upon the housetops; and they shall be read by the power of Christ; and all things shall be revealed unto the children of men which ever have been among the children of men, and which ever will be, even unto the end of the earth. 29:17 Wherefore, at that day when the book shall be delivered unto the man of whom I have spoken, the book shall be hid from the eyes of the world, that the eyes of none shall behold it, save it be that three witnesses shall behold it by the power of God, besides him to whom the book shall be delivered; and they shall testify to the truth of the book and the things therein. 29:18 And there is none other which shall view it, save it be a few according to the will of God, to bear testimony of his word unto the children of men; ( the eight witnesses) for the Lord God hath said, that the words of the faithful should speak as it were from the dead. 29:19 Wherefore, the Lord God will proceed to bring forth the words of the book; (“at that day” in Joseph Smith’s time) and in the mouth of as many witnesses as seemeth him good (eleven including Joseph Smith) will he establish his word; and woe be unto him that rejecteth the word of God.

Verses 17-19 have already been fulfilled “at that day when the book shall be delivered unto the man” Joseph Smith. The three witnesses and “as many witnesses as seemeth him good” the eight witnesses to the entire Book of Mormon including the sealed portion have already been provided and their testimonies given to the world.

See also verse 24 below the witnesses have already been provided.

Isaiah 29:24 Wherefore, when thou hast read the words which I have commanded thee, and obtained the witnesses which I have promised unto thee, I know of no other scriptures that provide for more witness than the eleven witnesses and Joseph Smith to fulfill the above scriptures.

Isaiah 29:20 But, behold, it shall come to pass, that the Lord God shall say unto him to
whom he shall deliver the book, Take these words which are not sealed and deliver
them to another, that he may show them unto the learned, saying, Read this, I pray
thee. 29:21 And the learned shall say, Bring hither the book and I will read them; and now because of the glory of the world, and to get gain will they say this, and not for the glory of God. And the man shall say, I cannot bring the book for it is sealed. Then
shall the learned say, I cannot read it. 29:22 Wherefore it shall come to pass, that the Lord God will deliver again the book and the words thereof to him that is not learned; and the man that is not learned shall say, I am not learned. Then shall the Lord God say unto him, The learned shall not read them, for they have rejected them, and I am able to do mine own work; wherefore thou shalt read the words which I shall give unto thee. 29:23 Touch not the things which are sealed, for I will bring them forth in mine own
due time; for I will show unto the children of men that I am able to do mine own work.

Notice the Lord states concerning “the things which are sealed... I will bring them forth in mine own due time...I am able to do mine own work.”

Isaiah 29:24 Wherefore, when thou hast read the words which I have commanded thee, and obtained the witnesses which I have promised unto thee, then shalt thou seal up the
book again, and hide it up unto me, that I may preserve the words which thou hast not
read until I shall see fit in mine own wisdom to reveal all things unto the children of
men. 29:25For behold, I am God; and I am a God of miracles; and I will show unto the
world that I am the same yesterday, today, and forever; and I work not among the children of men, save it be according to their faith.

John16:30 Now are we sure that thou (Christ) knowest all things, and needest not that any man should ask thee; by this we believe that thou camest forth from God.

Genesis7:75 And the Lord showed Enoch all things, even unto the end of the world. And he saw the day of the righteous, the hour of their redemption, and received a fullness of joy.

1 Nephi 3:239-251 3:239 And the angel said unto me, Behold one of the twelve apostles of the Lamb! 3:240 Behold, he shall see and write the remainder of these things; 3:241 Yea, and also many things which have been; 3:242 And he shall also write concerning the end of the world; 3:243 Wherefore, the things which he shall write are just and true; 3:244 And behold, they are written in the book which thou beheld proceeding out of the mouth of the Jew; 3:245 And at the time they proceeded out of the mouth of the Jew, or, at the time the book proceeded out of the mouth of the Jew, the things which were written were plain and pure, and most precious and easy to the understanding of all men. 3:246 And behold, the things which this apostle of the Lamb shall write, are
many things which thou hast seen; 3:247 And behold, the remainder shalt thou see;
3:248But the things which thou shalt see hereafter, thou shalt not write; for the Lord
God hath ordained the apostle of the Lamb of God that he should write them. 3:249 And also others who have been, to them hath he shown all things, and they have written them; 3:250 And they are sealed up to come forth in their purity according to the truth
which is in the Lamb, in the own due time of the Lord, unto the house of Israel. 3:251 And I, Nephi, heard and bear record, that the name of the apostle of the Lamb was John, according to the word of the angel.

Ether 5:25 Behold, thou hast not made us mighty in writing like unto the Brother of Jared, for thou madest him that the things which he wrote, were mighty even as thou art, unto the overpowering of man to read them.

Ether1:101 And in that day that they shall exercise faith in me, saith the Lord, even as the Brother of Jared did, that they may become sanctified in me, then will I manifest unto them the things which the Brother of Jared saw, even to the unfolding unto them all my revelations, saith Jesus Christ, the Son of God, the Father of the heavens and of the earth, and all things that in them are.

I personally believe that Nephi and John as well as the Brother of Jared, Enoch and“others”as is stated in 1Nephi 3:249 have all been shown “all things.”The things which are contained in the Sealed Portion of the Book of Mormon. Remember what is required to read the sealed portion of the Book of Mormon (see Ether 1:101 above) and note above the spiritual qualities of the men that have been shown all things and we must ask ourselves, are we spiritually capable or worthy now to receive the things that were revealed to these Holy men of God?
