Isaiah’s Prophecy About The Coming Forth Of The Book Of Mormon

2 Nephi 27 quotes Isaiah 29, which foretells the coming of the Book of Mormon.  The Orthodox Christian World is not aware of this prophecy, but it happened.  I explained this prophecy on January 29th of this year.

On that date, I wrote:

“It is also amazing to see a prophecy that was fulfilled.  The prophecy is found in the Old Testament of the Bible, in the book of Isaiah, chapter 29, verses 11 and 12.  It is prophesized that a man will refuse to read a book because it is sealed; but the unlearned man will be able to read this same book.

Martin Harris brought translated characters, and those that had not been translated, to an educated man, Charles Anton, to get a certificate about the authenticity of the translation.  This learned man would not certify the translation because he did not believe in angels.  He also would not translate the book himself because it was sealed.  On the other hand, Joseph Smith, a young man with a third grade education, through the power of God, translated the unsealed portion of the sealed book.”

Also in this chapter, Isaiah talks about the condition of the world at the time of the coming forth of the Book of Mormon.

I believe that one  reason that Orthodox Christianity is not aware that this chapter is a prophecy of the coming forth of the Book of Mormon, is probably because they are not familiar with what happened when the Book of Mormon was being translated; and this is the reason that I am writing today.
