The Work of the Father, the Fulness of the Gospel.

Behold I say unto you that the house of Israel was compared unto an olive-tree by the spirit of the Lord which was in our fathers, and behold, are we not broken off from the house of Israel, and are we not a branch of the house of Israel? And now the thing which our father meaneth concerning the grafting in of the natural branches through the fulness of the Gentiles is that in the latter days when our seed shall have dwindled in unbelief, yea, for the space of many years and many generations after the Messiah shall be manifested in body unto the children of men, then shall the fulness of the gospel of the Messiah come unto the Gentiles, and from the Gentiles unto the remnant of our seed. And at that day shall the remnant of our seed know that they are of the house of Israel and that they are the covenant people of the Lord. And then shall they know and come to the knowledge of their forefathers and also to the knowledge of the gospel of their Redeemer, which was ministered unto their fathers by him. Wherefore, they shall come to the knowledge of their Redeemer and the very points of his doctrine, that they may know how to come unto him and be saved. And then at that day will they not rejoice and give praise unto their everlasting God, their rock, and their salvation? Yea, at that day, will they not receive the strength and nourishment from the true vine? Yea, will they not come unto the true fold of God? Behold I say unto you, Yea, they shall be remembered again among the house of Israel; they shall be grafted in, being a natural branch of the olive-tree, into the true olive-tree, and this is what our father meaneth. And he meaneth that it will not come to pass until after they are scattered by the Gentiles. And he meaneth that it shall come by way of the Gentiles, that the Lord may shew his power unto the Gentiles for the very cause that he shall be rejected of the Jews or of the house of Israel. Wherefore, our father hath not spoken of our seed alone, but also of all the house of Israel, pointing to the covenant which should be fulfilled in the latter days, which covenant the Lord made to our father Abraham, saying, In thy seed shall all the kindreds of the earth be blessed. And it came to pass that I, Nephi, spake much unto them concerning these things; yea, I spake unto them concerning the restoration of the Jews in the latter days and I did rehearse unto them the words of Isaiah, who spake concerning the restoration of the Jews or of the house of Israel; and after they were restored they should no more be confounded, neither should they be scattered again. And it came to pass that I did speak many words unto my brethren, that they were pacified and did humble themselves before the Lord.

(Book of Nephi, 5)

These words bring me such anticipation, the truth of these scriptures just fills me with hunger. I believe we are standing on precipice of this work to commence. 

Of a truth, Gods hand is moving to fulfill the word He spoke and is still speaking, today...through His servants. Every word must be fulfilled for God cannot lie.
The pieces are coming into place, do we doubt God can do this?

As Gentiles, we have a choice. To turn from our evil ways, act in faith and repent and keep His commandments in order to receive more Intelligence, become sanctified through His blood, cleansed without spot and called trusted to be endowed with His Power, that maybe we can work alongside with our Lord in His vineyard.

Israel will be gathered. Hearts connected to the Fathers in heaven and Zion established.

All the Prophets since the world began have looked forward to this moment. Do you believe, will you repent in order to participate in this great work, for His Name and for His Glory.

The way, is to know the things of God

And it came to pass that after I had received strength I spake unto my brethren, desiring to know of them the cause of their disputations. And they said, Behold we cannot understand the words which our father hath spoken concerning the natural branches of the olive-tree and also concerning the Gentiles. And I said unto them, Have ye inquired of the Lord? And they said unto me, We have not, for the Lord maketh no such thing known unto us. Behold I said unto them, How is it that ye do not keep the commandments of the Lord? How is it that ye will perish because of the hardness of your hearts? Do ye not remember the things which the Lord hath said, If ye will not harden your hearts and ask me in faith, believing that ye shall receive, with diligence in keeping my commandments, surely these things shall be made known unto you?

(The Book of Nephi, chapter 5)

Here is an important key to understanding the more mysterious passages of Scripture.
Nephi believed on the words of his father, the demonstration was by him  keeping the commandments, (1 Nephi 5:20) this is the way in which more Light and intelligence is given which enables us to accomplish all things the Lord commands.

Nephi then goes on to say;

And we had obtained the records which the Lord had commanded us, and searched them and found that they were desirable; yea, even of great worth unto us, insomuch that we could preserve the commandments of the Lord unto our children.
Wherefore, it was wisdom in the Lord that we should carry them with us, as we journeyed in the wilderness towards the land of promise.
This speaks to me more as a spiritual type than just the physical. Moses 6:61...
Therefore it is given to abide in you; the record of heaven; the Comforter; the peaceable things of immortal glory; the truth of all things; that which quickeneth all things, which maketh alive all things; that which knoweth all things, and hath all power according to wisdom, mercy, truth, justice, and judgment.
