“For the Wisdom of Their Wise and Learned shall Perish”

D. Kelly Ogden, Andrew C. Skinner

This verse speaks of the glorious restoration of the gospel in these last days. The work of the Lord will continue to flourish until it has penetrated all the lands of the earth; it will be increasingly “a marvelous work and a wonder.”

“The wisdom of their wise and learned shall perish, and the understanding of their prudent shall be hid.” To many scholars, this message originally from Isaiah 29 is still sealed.
