We pierced through the darkness.

We pierced through the darkness.
.
I need you to think about this.
.
The Gospel of Jesus Christ was REJECTED.
.
The Son of God was killed.
.
Why?
.
Because the world was SO WICKED!!
.
What happened next? They killed the Apostles and prophets, and we entered into a spiritual dark age. (2 Thes. 2:2–7).
.
“For over seventeen hundred years on the eastern hemisphere, and for more than fourteen centuries on the western, there appears to have been silence between the heavens and the earth.” Talmage.
.
If the world was wicked enough to reject Christ, His Apostles, and prophets, how evil do you think it got over the course of Seventeen Hundred years?
.
Scripture ended, apostasy spread, and the church that Christ established during His earthly ministry ceased to exist. ( 2 Ne. 27:4–5).
.
How powerful is God? Powerful enough to re-establish His Gospel.
.
He restored His Gospel as evil prevailed, and darkness swept the world for centuries.
.
“Wickedness is rapidly expanding in every segment of our society. It is more highly organized, more cleverly disguised, and more powerfully promoted than ever before. Secret combinations lusting for power, gain, and glory are flourishing.
.
A secret combination that seeks to overthrow the freedom of all lands, nations, and countries is increasing its evil influence and control over America and the entire world (Ether 8:18–25).
.
As the issues become clearer and more obvious, all mankind will eventually be required to align themselves either for the kingdom of God or for the kingdom of the devil.
.
As these conflicts rage, either secretly or openly, the righteous will be tested. God’s wrath will soon shake the nations of the earth and will be poured out on the wicked without measure (See JS—H 1:45; D&C 1:9).
.
But God will provide strength for the righteous and the means of escape; and eventually and finally, truth will triumph.” EZT.
.
Hear Him!!

One thought on “We pierced through the darkness.

  1. Barbara Terry

    When you read of the millions killed through wars over power and land in the Book of Mormon, and yet President Nelson says we are living in the most evil times in history, you realize how deep it lurking. It is all around us, and unless we’re diligently and continuously focused we will be deceived!
