2 Nephi 21

This delight that Nephi shares from the book of Isaiah is designed to prove the truth of the coming of Christ.  Nephi had seen a vision of the Savior, and now he quotes Isaiah, who talks plainly of the Messiah.  Note Isaiah’s description of the Messiah:  He shall be filled with the Spirit of the Lord, and the spirit of wisdom and understanding, the spirit of counsel and might, the spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the Lord, in the which he shall be of quick understanding.  He shall judge, not after what he sees or hears, but with righteousness.  As we reflect upon the life of the Savior as recorded by the gospel writers, we readily find examples of all these things.  At the Second Coming He shall be clothed with righteousness and faithfulness.  Note that in the millennium there will be no hurt nor destruction because the earth shall be full of the knowledge of the Lord (v. 9).  Why wait until the millennium?  Can we end hurt and destruction in our families by filling them with the knowledge of the Lord?
