Today my post will be brief because I am working on a project that I have not finished. I plan to post on those passages in the Book of Mormon that seem to prophesy the end of the United States if we become ripe in wickedness. I will show from the scriptures the Lord’s promise that he will allow this nation to be “swept” off” if we fail to repent as a nation.
What does “swept off” mean in this context? What does “ripe” mean? How we understand that word determines how much time we have left. Here is a passage from Mosiah 29. I recommend it to you as food for thought as we approach another national election:
And if the time comes that the voice of the people doth choose iniquity, then is the time that the judgments of God will come upon you; yea, then is the time he will visit you with great destruction even as he has hitherto visited this land. (Mosiah 29:27)
It will be a while before I finish this project. I will post it here when I am done.
