Today's Favorite Verse: 3 Nephi 7:15, 18-19

Today's Favorite Verse: 3 Nephi 7:15, 18-19
"And it came to pass that Nephi having been visited by angels and also the voice of the Lord, therefore having seen angels, and being eye-witness, and having had power given unto him that he might know concerning the ministry of Christ, and also being eye-witness to their quick return from righteousness unto their wickedness and abominations;
And in the name of Jesus did he cast out devils and unclean spirits; and even his brother did he raise from the dead, after he had been stoned and suffered death by the people. 
And the people saw it, and did witness of it, and were angry with him because of his power; and he did also do many more miracles, in the sight of the people, in the name of Jesus."

It's now 31 AD and on the American continent the people are witnessing the same miracles that Christ performed in the Holy Land.  It was the prophet Nephi that is the vessel for works performed in the name of Jesus Christ. Nephi was also ministered by angels daily. These signs are a witness to the people of the power of Christ. They are given to the people for one last chance to repent and come to Christ. For the wicked will be destroyed at the time of Christ's crucification. The wicked are never destroy unless they are warned first.

It's interesting that along with the miracles performed the wicked are angry at seeing them. I don't think I even want to understand how a wicked person could be blinded enough by Satan to deny the Christ and his miracles. Not only deny but be angry about them. Being angry about anything is never a good sign about your moral standing. I marvel at the parallel to Christ's ministry. In his name miracles are being performed on two continents. I couldn't help but ponder on the miracles we will see before Christ returns to this earth. I know similar signs will be given.
