“We have front-row seats to witness live what the prophet Nephi saw only in vision”

By Frank M. Keele

In April conference of 2020 President Nelson said:

“We live in the day that “our forefathers have awaited with anxious expectation.” We have front-row seats to witness live what the prophet Nephi saw only in vision, that “the power of the Lamb of God” would descend “upon the covenant people of the Lord, who were scattered upon all the face of the earth; and they were armed with righteousness and with the power of God in great glory.”

You, my brothers and sisters, are among those men, women, and children whom Nephi saw. Think of that!”

President Nelson’s quote comes form 1 Ne. 14:14 where Nephi says that “the power of the Lamb of God” would descend “upon the covenant people of the Lord, who were scattered upon all the face of the earth; and they were armed with righteousness and with the power of God in great glory.” However, Nephi reportedly saw much more than this because he goes on to say:

19 And I looked and beheld a man, and he was dressed in a white robe.

20 And the angel said unto me: Behold one of the twelve apostles of the Lamb.

21 Behold, he shall see and write the remainder of these things; yea, and also many things which have been.

22 And he shall also write concerning the end of the world.

23 Wherefore, the things which he shall write are just and true; and behold they are written in the book which thou beheld proceeding out of the mouth of the Jew; 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.

24 And behold, the things which this apostle of the Lamb shall write are many things which thou hast seen; and behold, the remainder shalt thou see.

And so Nephi was about to see “the things which this apostle (John) of the Lamb shall write”, so my question is this… Is it possible President Nelson may have been thinking beyond just verse 14 when he said, “We have front-row seats to witness live what the prophet Nephi saw only in vision”? Was he also thinking of the things that John saw and that Nephi would also see?
