December 5th: Samuel The Lamanite

Come to Christ

The word Advent can be defined as the arrival of a notable person, thing, or event. This Christmas season help your family remember the arrival of Christ by sharing sections of the Christmas Story from the Bible and Book of Mormon Daily.

In America, the Nephites and Lamanites also watched and waited for the time when Jesus would be born. Through the prophet Samuel, who lived in America, the Lord gave the people a sign that would let them know Of Jesus’ birth. He said there would be no darkness for a day and a night and a day. The sun would rise in the morning and go down at night so that the people could see it, but it would be as if it were two long days and a night without any darkness, The prophets also told the people that there would be many other signs and wonders in heaven and earth. Angels would appear to man, and they would bring glad tidings of great joy about Jesus’ birth (Helaman 16:14). And a new star would arise which would be a sign to them about the birth Of our Savior. Many Of the good people who heard these promises knew that our Father in heaven would fulfill every one of them, These people believed the words of the prophet Samuel. As the time for the birth of the baby Jesus grew closer and closer, the people watched and waited for the glorious event to happen. But some Of the wicked people did not believe the words of the prophet. They began to say that the words that Samuel had spoken would not be fulfilled, They were about to harm the people who believed Samuel. They also tried to harm him, so Samuel fled to another country.
