1 Nephi 14:1

Precept #1

Listen to Jesus when He speaks. Listen for Jesus to speak to you. And accept it when He does.

. . . either to the convincing of them unto peace and life eternal, or unto the deliverance of them to the hardness of their hearts and the blindness of their minds unto their being brought down into captivity, and also into destruction, both temporally and spiritually, according to the captivity of the devil, of which I have spoken.
