First Nephi 5:10-22
The brass plates were "desirable", and "of great worth". Lehi wasted no time in searching them from the beginning - a good example of feasting upon the scriptures. Lehi also discovers his genealogy, another good example for us. After seeing all these things, he is filled with the Spirit. As you read the scriptures, or discover your genealogy, are you also filled with the Spirit? As he was, he prophesied something truly exciting for us today:
This prophesy has not yet been fulfilled. There are many nations, kindreds, tongues, and people of Lehi's seed that have yet to receive the brass plates, let alone those who are not of his seed. The day will come when we will have them in their entirety - larger than our current Old and New Testaments combined (1Ne 13:23). Are we ready to search them from the beginning?
