1 Nephi 14





In verse 14 Nephi saw that the saints and the covenant people of the Lord prepared themselves for battle, for they were “armed with righteousness and with the power of God in great glory.”  This reminds me of Paul’s encouragement in Ephesians chapter 6 for us to put on the “whole armour of God.”  In that analogy to arm ourselves with the power of God requires on our part truth, righteousness, peace, faith and salvation.  Paul continues telling us that once armed, we still need to pray and to watch. This is what we need to have to share in the power of God as we fight our battles against the adversary.
