First Nephi 14 - part 3
The preceding act of aggression in v.13, namely the gathering of multitudes to fight against the Lamb of God as directed by the "great mother of abominations", prompts the above defensive response. The power of the Lamb of God descends to protect and arm the saints. Certainly we can say this is already happening, but I believe it will be more pronounced when this prophecy is fulfilled to completion. Remember that it occurs after the multitudes gather to fight. It will occur in stark contrast, a defense proportional to the threatened offensive. The power of God in great glory will be apparent.
