In other words : we must learn to digest the
“ milk ” of the Gospel before we can digest the
“ strong meat “ of God‘s Word. ( Hebrews 5:12-14 )
 
     
  2nd Nephi 27:22-23
Wherefore, when thou hast read the words which I have commanded thee, . . . then shalt thou seal up the book again, and hide it up unto Me, . . . until I shall see fit in Mine own wisdom to reveal all things unto the children of men. For behold, I am God ; . . .
 
  The Prophets were commanded not to write and reveal everything which
they had seen and heard. It was up to the Lord to decide what the
people were ready and worthy to receive. ( Alma 12:9-11, 3rd Nephi 26:11-12 )
 
  “ And many other signs truly did Jesus . . . which are not written in this book :” ( John 20:30 )  
  “ And there are also many other things which Jesus did, the which, if they should be written every one, I suppose that even the world itself could not contain the books that should be written. Amen. ” ( John 21:25 )  
     
  I am not
to write
about this
miracle.
 
     
  “ . . . many things did Nephi speak which
cannot be written ; . . . ” (Helaman 8:3)
 
  GRRRRR !  
  “ . . . I [ Mormon ] write a small abridgement, daring not to give a full account of the things which I have seen, because of the commandment which I have received [ from God ], . . .” ( Mormon 5:9 )
