Book of Mormon Foretells The End Of The United States

September 9, 2011

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.
