When Moroni visited the boy Joseph Smith, he quoted Isaiah 11 and said it was about to be fulfilled. As such, many Latter-day Saints have viewed Joseph Smith as the “rod” and “root” of Jesse, and the Book of Mormon as the “ensign.” Thus, the Restoration was both prophesied in and influenced by the words of Isaiah. Fulfillment of Isaiah 11 signifies that we are in the last days, and must assist the Lord in his work of gathering Israel.

“It was a fact that I had beheld a vision. I had actually seen a light, and in the midst of that light I saw two Personages, and they did in reality speak to me;... it was true. I knew it, and I knew that God knew it, and I could not deny it.” Enjoy the inspiring short film #AskofGod youtu.be/RBvk_6_dW6k, a stunning portrayal of the Prophet #JosephSmith’s #FirstVision.

Three years after Joseph Smith’s First Vision, God sent the angel Moroni to instruct Joseph about restoring the gospel of Jesus Christ. “He called me by name, and said unto me that he was a messenger sent from the presence of God to me, and that his name was Moroni; that God had a work for me to do.” Learn more lds.org/topics/joseph-smith/testimony; facebook.com/TheProphetJosephSmith.
