Alma 46:10-18 Moroni entendió la fuente y la razón por la libertad que había extendido a los Nefitas. Fue –la bendición que Dios había enviado sobre la faz de la tierra por el bien de los justos.– (vs. 10) Al leer esto, me hace reflexionar como antes ellos tuvieron un rey. Esta nueva forma de […]
Alma 46:1-9 Los que estaban irritado por la predicación de la palabra de Dios se organizaba de acuerdo con su ira. Me parece un poco curioso este punto que se distinguiera por su ira.
Alma 46:38-41 The bulk of these verses talks about the peaceful passing of many with their faith firmly intact. There is an interesting side thought that gives insights into how it was that so many died of just old age. (vs. 41) Verse 40 talks about how because of the “many plants and roots which […]

Mosiah 3 I’ve slowly read through this chapter again this morning. It has been a healing balm to my wounded soul. I failed in previous readings to realized that the bulk of this chapter is an angelic communication straight from the realms of glory of the presence of the Lord. This is the doctrine of […]
Mormon 5:10-21 This phrase found in verse 12 was a shaft of light or understanding this morning to my mind. The wording though found in verses 10 -12 are particularly compelling.
