  1. Helaman 12-16 Samuel the Lamanite

  2. Helaman 12-16 “ ‘The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.’ We need to raise our voices with other concerned citizens throughout the world in opposition to current trends. We need to tell the sponsors of offensive media that we have had enough. We need to support programs and products that are positive and uplifting. Joining together with neighbors and friends who share our concerns, we can send a clear message to those responsible” (Elder Ballard, “Let Our Voices Be Heard,” Ensign or Liahona, Nov. 2003, 18).

  3. Helaman 12-16 TRI BOND (find the common bond between three elements) • Tall Dark Handsome • Deacon Teacher Priest • Basketball player, soccer player, baby • Santa, Kelloggs, Keebler • Iron, Dog, Shoe • Nurse, Lemon, Bull • Surgeon, Cockpit, Orchestra • Fortune, Bank, Story • Fiancee, deck of cards, baseball field • Prophet, Seer, and Revelator • Read Hel 13:1-4. Read 13:5-6 looking for his role as prophet seer and revelator

  4. Helaman 12-16 How did Samuel know? Helaman 15:7-8, 17 • What are the signs of Jesus’ birth in people? And what about his death? • Read Helaman 16:1–3, 4-5 and look for the reaction of the Nephites to Samuel’s message.

  5. Helaman 12-16 How did the wicked explain the prophecies of the coming of Christ? • Prophets “guessed right” in some of their prophecies, but not about Christ’s coming (v. 16). • Christ’s coming is “not reasonable” (v.18). • Prophecies of Christ’s coming are only the result of “wicked traditions” (v. 20). • We do not believe anything unless we can see it “with our own eyes” (v. 20). • The great mysteries the prophets know can only come from “the evil one” (v.21).

  6. Helaman 12-16 The living prophet has the power of TNT. By that I mean “Today’s News Today.” God’s revelations to Adam did not instruct Noah how to build the ark, Noah needed his own revelation. Therefore, the most important prophet, so far as you and I are concerned, is the one living in our day and age to who the Lord is currently revealing His will for us. Therefore, the most important reading we can do is any of the words of the prophet. –Ezra Taft Benson, BYU Speeches of the Year - 1980.

  7. Helaman 12-16 “To be firm and steadfast is to be constant, consistent, and vigilant in one’s faith and approach to living the gospel” (Joseph Fielding McConkie and Robert L. Millet, Doctrinal Commentary, 3:419). Helaman 16:2
