Scriptures on how the Lamanites become a great people:
-“Before the great day of the Lord shall come, … the Lamanites shall blossom as the rose” (D&C 49:24)
–shortly before the birth of Jesus Christ, the Lamanites accepted the gospel and were more righteous than the Nephites (Hel. 6:34–36). (What happened before Christ’s visit to the Nephites is a type of what will happen before he comes again.)
And now it came to pass that Samuel, the Lamanite, did prophesy a great many more things which cannot be written. ( A type of righteous Lamanites)
– Alma 23–27, focuses on the conversion of the Lamanites.
To Lamanites languishing in a condition of spiritual captivity, the Book of Mormon offers a way to obtain the promises of the Lord in “the latter times.” (Hel. 15:11–12.) The record speaks unto them “out of the dust” (Moro. 10:27), challenging them to “arise from the dust” (2 Ne. 1:14).
-It was promised also that the seed of Laman and Lemuel would be a “scourge” to the rebellious descendants of Nephi. (See 1 Ne. 2:24.)
