Abstract

When Moroni visited the boy Joseph Smith, he quoted Isaiah 11 and said it was about to be fulfilled. As such, many Latter-day Saints have viewed Joseph Smith as the “rod” and “root” of Jesse, and the Book of Mormon as the “ensign.” Thus, the Restoration was both prophesied in and influenced by the words of Isaiah. Fulfillment of Isaiah 11 signifies that we are in the last days, and must assist the Lord in his work of gathering Israel.
