Lehi’s Prophetic Call
Lehites in Jerusalem and Arabia
During the reign of Zedekiah, a number of prophets emerge, and warn the people of Jerusalem’s imminent destruction.
Lehi, a man living in Jerusalem at that time, prays to God in behalf of Jerusalem’s citizens.
A pillar of fire ushers in a spectacular heavenly manifestation which leaves Lehi overwhelmed and shaken.
Lehi runs home to recover from his experience.
While lying on his bed, Lehi is enwrapped in a vision.
Lehi sees God, angels, Jesus, and the twelve apostles.
Jesus gives Lehi a book, which confirms Jerusalem’s future destruction and Babylonian occupation.
Lehi praises the Lord.
Having now become a prophet, Lehi goes out and tells the citizens of the content of his vision.
The people do not accept Lehi, especially not his call to repentance; they set out to kill him.
