Helaman 14:1 And now it came to pass that Samuel the Lamanite did prophesy a great many more things which cannot be written.

Helaman 14:2 And behold, he saith unto them: Behold, I give unto you a sign. For five years more cometh, and behold, then cometh the Son of God to redeem all those who shall believe on his name.

Helaman 14:3 And behold, this will I give unto you for a sign at the time of his coming. For behold, there shall be great lights in heaven, insomuch that in the night before he cometh there shall be no darkness, insomuch that it shall appear unto man as if it was day.

Helaman 14:4 Therefore there shall be one day and a night and a day, as if it were one day and there were no night. And this shall be unto you for a sign, for ye shall know of the rising of the sun and also of its sitting. Therefore they shall know of a surety that there shall be two days and a night; nevertheless the night shall not be darkened. And it shall be the night before he is born.

Helaman 14:5 And behold, there shall be a new star arise, such an one as ye never have beheld; and this also shall be a sign unto you.

Helaman 14:7 And it shall come to pass that ye shall all be amazed and wonder, insomuch that ye shall fall to the earth.

Helaman 14:9 And behold, thus hath the Lord commanded me by his angel that I should come and tell this thing unto you. Yea, he hath commanded that I should prophesy these things unto you; yea, he hath said unto me: Cry unto this people: Repent and prepare the way of the Lord.

Helaman 14:10 And now because I am a Lamanite and hath spoken unto you the words which the Lord hath commanded me and because it was hard against you, ye are angry with me and do seek to destroy me and have cast me out from among you.

Helaman 14:11 And ye shall hear my words, for for this intent I have come up upon the walls of this city, that ye might hear and know of the judgments of God which doth await you because of your iniquities, and also that ye might know the conditions of repentance,

Helaman 14:12 and also that ye might know of the coming of Jesus Christ the Son of God, the Father of heaven and of earth, the Creator of all things from the beginning, and that ye might know of the signs of his coming, to the intent that ye might believe on his name.

Helaman 14:14 And behold, again another sign I give unto you, yea, a sign of his death.

Helaman 14:15 For behold, he surely must die, that salvation may come. Yea, it behooveth him and becometh expedient that he dieth to bring to pass the resurrection of the dead, that thereby men may be brought into the presence of the Lord.

Helaman 14:16 Yea, behold, this death bringeth to pass the resurrection and redeemeth all mankind from the first death, that spiritual death. For all mankind, by the fall of Adam being cut off from the presence of the Lord, are considered as dead, both as to things temporal and to things spiritual.

Helaman 14:17 But behold, the resurrection of Christ redeemeth mankind, yea, even all mankind, and bringeth them back into the presence of the Lord.

Helaman 14:18 Yea, and it bringeth to pass the conditions of repentance, that whosoever repenteth, the same is not hewn down and cast into the fire. But whosoever repenteth not is hewn down and cast into the fire.

Helaman 14:19 Therefore repent ye, repent ye, lest by knowing these things and not doing them, ye shall suffer yourselves to come under condemnation and ye are brought down unto this second death.

But as the young man returned to where the army stayed, behold! the black dust in the hold caught fire, and it rent the air with the noise of a thousand thunders: And the whole army fell down upon their faces to the earth; and the stones, and the fragments of rocks, were lifted high; and the falling thereof was terrible even unto deaths Yea, it was dreadful as the mighty earthquake, which overturneth cities. And the whole face of the earth round about, and the army of Zebulon, were overshadowed with black smoke; so that, for a time, one man saw not another: But when the heavy clouds of smoke passed away towards the west, behold the earth was covered with the killed and the wounded. Alas! the sight was shocking to behold; as the deed was ignoble. About two hundred men rose not: the stones had bruised them; the sharp rocks had fallen upon them: They were wedged into the earth: their weapons of war were bent down into the ground with them; their feet were turned towards heaven; their limbs were lopped off.

Helaman 14:21 Yea, at the time that he shall yield up the ghost, there shall be thunderings and lightnings for the space of many hours. And the earth shall shake and tremble.
