While chatting about Nephi's prophecies in 2 Nephi 28 of The Book of Mormon we came to a realization of something incredibly fascinating. There are some interesting and somewhat often quoted phrase that are normally used in jest since it seems entirely ludicrous that people might think this way and the world is moving in this direction, even though most religions believe in a "hell" of some type.
Let me quote two verses directly for initial review and reference:
22 And behold, others he flattereth away, and telleth them there is no hell; and he saith unto them: I am no devil, for there is none—and thus he whispereth in their ears, until he grasps them with his awful chains, from whence there is no deliverance.
23 Yea, they are grasped with death, and hell; and death, and hell, and the devil, and all that have been seized therewith must stand before the throne of God, and be judged according to their works, from whence they must go into the place prepared for them, even a lake of fire and brimstone, which is endless torment.
Now let us consider the history and context of Nephi and his family and what he might have actually written in their native tongue and from their native cultural perspective.
Nephi and his family left Jerusalem circa 600 BC (traveled in the wilderness until about 591 BC). See Book of Mormon + Biblical + World History Timeline.
Babylon started their siege and captivity of the nation states of Judah and Israel around 606 BC and finalized success roughly in 587 BC. See Biblical History Timeline.
Egypt was still an active influence and role in their lives in this time period. Recall that the Hebrews left Egypt circa 1446 BC and finally took over the land of Canaan circa 1406 BC. Egypt was in its "Late Period" during this time and a major center of trade; Lehi was said to have been a merchant doing trade here regularly from Jerusalem to Egypt. See Timeline of Ancient Egypt.
Apparently the Israelites of this time were divided into two political factions or parties, so to speak: pro-Egyptian and pro-Babylonian. See: Lehi’s Journeys | Religious Studies Center
Now consider this:
First let us remove our current beliefs and cultural context. Hell and the devil are NOT the same for us today compared to what these people believed.
Recall that "Hell" was actually Sheol to these people. This was and is the underworld also appears to now be identifiable as the "cavern world". This could be discussed at great length, but I think we understand this more or less if you see old posts (search for "sheol" and consider its possible aliases).
We can, therefore, rewrite the above as:
"And behold, others he flattereth away, and telleth them there is no CAVERN WORLD; and he saith unto them: I am no devil, for there is none—and thus he whispereth in their ears..."
Now what about the next part? Who was the devil to these people? He was NOT the traditional definition we envision today. It appears as though, as per some of the previous shares from particularly @Ephraimite that the "devil" was a reptilian humanoid also known as "Satan" and it is likely that this is a title similar to how "Jehovah" may have been a title and therefore in this case there have been or are multiple "satans" within the cavern world. I invite @Ephraimite to share more thoughts and links to elucidate or support this as they may find time.
We could then perhaps rewrite this yet again as follows:
"And behold, others he flattereth away, and telleth them there is no CAVERN WORLD; and he saith unto them: I am no REPTILIAN LUCIFERIAN LEADER THAT WANTS TO DESTROY AND CONSUME THE CHILDREN/CREATIONS/MAMMALIAN HUMANOIDS OF THE OPPOSITION GODS, for there is none—and thus he whispereth in their ears..."
Or you might simply say:
"And behold, others he flattereth away, and telleth them there is no CAVERN WORLD; and he saith unto them: I am no REPTILOID, for there ARE none—and thus he whispereth in their ears..."
You could explore several permutations here, but you get the idea...
Ultimately we have and easily do see that this prophecy was fulfilled and quite dramatically. The bastardization of its meaning goes back to the very foundations of the modern English language and even culture/society that was molded by the translators of the Bible. It seems as though they were being carefully led down a path by the cavern world influencers that have had their hands around society for likely well over 1-2 millennia now and have carefully orchestrated their hiding so as to be able to rebrand and market themselves as false saviors either religiously or technologically/academia (which as become a religion in its own right through the systematic control and manipulation for not just, what we though, a couple hundred years) and perhaps as "aliens" vs cavern worlders aligned against the creations of the Gods of Order and TRUE Light - seemingly the Elohim (who have been stained and tarnished by the Luciferians).
