“Neither Have I at Any Time Manifested Myself Unto Them”

Joseph F. McConkie, Robert L. Millet

’And these things doth the Spirit manifest unto me; therefore I write unto you all’-all the house of Israel. Why? ’That ye may believe the gospel of Jesus Christ which ye shall have among you; and also that the Jews, the covenant people of the Lord, shall have other witness besides him whom they saw and heard, that Jesus, whom they slew, was the very Christ and the very God.

And I would that I could persuade all ye ends of the earth to repent and prepare to stand before the judgment-seat of Christ.’ (Mormon 3:17-22.) That is to say, all Israel, the Lamanites and the Ten Tribes included, shall be gathered if and when they believe the Book of Mormon. The Ten Tribes shall return after they accept the Book of Mormon; then they shall come to Ephraim to receive their blessings, the blessings of the house of the Lord, the blessings that make them heirs of the covenant God made with their father Abraham.
