The Apostles and Prophets are the most important people on this earth. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is lead by Jesus Christ Himself because it is His church and He leads it through Apostles and Prophets. These 15 men serve the exact same purpose as the Lord’s original Apostles.
They are witnesses of Him! The restoration of the church when God the Father and His Son Jesus Christ visited Joseph Smith in their physical body left an unbroken chain of revelation (direct and indirect) to Apostles and Prophets. This was the greatest event since the Atonement.
Everyone in the world should care about the American covenant because America and its constitution were created by God to restore the gospel and spread freedom (religious and political) around the world. For example, America was the first nation in modern times to gain real freedom and because of this freedom has spread around the world.
Additionally, natural disasters are increasing in intensity like never before.
The Apostles and Prophets have said that we are living in the eleventh hour, and the signs of the Second Coming are greater and have intensified.
Time is running out!!
God is at the helm despite the secularization and the rejection of God by many American’s; however, He will not utterly let it be destroyed. Why?
The Lord said many are called but few are chosen. The few are chosen for what? In my mind few will be chosen to have the power of God to work miracles and counter the gross evil, wickedness and destructions that will befall this nation for rejecting Jesus Christ.
A cleansing will happen but the promises of the Lord of power are sure for those who paid the price of righteousness.
The blessings of the American covenant are tremendous and the consequences for rejecting Jesus Christ are serious.
President Gordon B. Hinckley declared:
'For a good while there has been going on in this nation a process that I have termed the secularization of America. . . . We as nation are forsaking the Almighty, and I fear that He will begin to forsake us. We are shutting the door against the God whose sons and daughters we are. . . . Future blessings will come only as we deserve them. Can we expect peace and prosperity, harmony and goodwill, when we turn our backs on the Source of strength? If we are to continue to have the freedoms that evolved within the structure that was the inspiration of the Almighty to our Founding Fathers, we must return to the God who is their true Author. . . . God bless America, for it is His creation.” Tim Ballard, The Washington Hypothesis
2 Nephi 1: 3-13
3 And he also spake unto them concerning the land of promise, which they had obtained—how merciful the Lord had been in warning us that we should flee out of the land of Jerusalem.
4 For, behold, said he, I have seen a vision, in which I know that Jerusalem is destroyed; and had we remained in Jerusalem we should also have perished.
5 But, said he, notwithstanding our afflictions, we have obtained a land of promise, a land which is choice above all other lands; a land which the Lord God hath covenanted with me should be a land for the inheritance of my seed. Yea, the Lord hath covenanted this land unto me, and to my children forever, and also all those who should be led out of other countries by the hand of the Lord.
6 Wherefore, I, Lehi, prophesy according to the workings of the Spirit which is in me, that there shall none come into this land save they shall be brought by the hand of the Lord.
7 Wherefore, this land is consecrated unto him whom he shall bring. And if it so be that they shall serve him according to the commandments which he hath given, it shall be a land of liberty unto them; wherefore, they shall never be brought down into captivity; if so, it shall be because of iniquity; for if iniquity shall abound cursed shall be the land for their sakes, but unto the righteous it shall be blessed forever.
8 And behold, it is wisdom that this land should be kept as yet from the knowledge of other nations; for behold, many nations would overrun the land, that there would be no place for an inheritance.
9 Wherefore, I, Lehi, have obtained a promise, that inasmuch as those whom the Lord God shall bring out of the land of Jerusalem shall keep his commandments, they shall prosper upon the face of this land; and they shall be kept from all other nations, that they may possess this land unto themselves. And if it so be that they shall keep his commandments they shall be blessed upon the face of this land, and there shall be none to molest them, nor to take away the land of their inheritance; and they shall dwell safely forever.
10 But behold, when the time cometh that they shall dwindle in unbelief, after they have received so great blessings from the hand of the Lord—having a knowledge of the creation of the earth, and all men, knowing the great and marvelous works of the Lord from the creation of the world; having power given them to do all things by faith; having all the commandments from the beginning, and having been brought by his infinite goodness into this precious land of promise—behold, I say, if the day shall come that they will reject the Holy One of Israel, the true Messiah, their Redeemer and their God, behold, the judgments of him that is just shall rest upon them.
11 Yea, he will bring other nations unto them, and he will give unto them power, and he will take away from them the lands of their possessions, and he will cause them to be scattered and smitten.
12 Yea, as one generation passeth to another there shall be bloodsheds, and great visitations among them; wherefore, my sons, I would that ye would remember; yea, I would that ye would hearken unto my words.
13 O that ye would awake; awake from a deep sleep, yea, even from the sleep of hell, and shake off the awful chains by which ye are bound, which are the chains which bind the children of men, that they are carried away captive down to the eternal gulf of misery and woe.
I once thought that no other country could or would invade America because it is so big and a lot of American’s have guns. However, the consequences for rejecting God is other nations will come, take our possessions (homes), scatter and smite us.
These are warnings we must take serious!
Nothing is more important than seeking after Jesus Christ. The things of this world are like chains that bind us to hell. That is because there is no spiritual or Godly power in filling our time with worldly things. For example, the entertainment industry is built up specifically to weaken faith and increase immorality.
America could look like Israel with terrorist attacks on a daily basis; however, they could cause much greater fear in America because of the size and the thousands of businesses Americans visit on a daily basis. Ultimately, terrorists want to overthrow America and replace the constitution with the Sharia law. They can't take on our military directly; therefore, they will resort to daily terrorist attacks throughout the country. These attacks will not be massive 9-11 style attacks that took them 10 years to plan and execute. Instead, they will resort to what has worked well for them in the past. For example it is nearly impossible to stop a terrorist wearing a suicide bomb vest. Also, they have a lot of experience with turning vehicles into terrible weapons (bombs) of death and destruction.
We cannot rely on our military or government. Our only hope is to turn to God and rely on Him and not on the arm of flesh such as the government. The government cannot stop what is coming if we reject Christ. However, if you are prepared spiritually and temporally you will not fear.
The Lord needs people who will overcome the world now and become righteous enough to have His power so they can save this country when the calamities and destructions arrive.
The greatest way you can serve America is to seek God yourself and then turn the rest of the country to Him.
