A Promised Land And God’s Mercy

Six Hundred years before Christ, the prophet Lehi saw in vision a land which was choice above  all other lands, a precious land, a land of promise, and a land of liberty. The message from the scriptures is very clear regarding this, the Land of Liberty. If we turn from the God of this Land, who is Jesus Christ, His protection will be taken from us, as a nation, leading us to a Mighty purging. This is a fundamental message of the Bible as well as of the Book of Mormon, which many Americans are ignoring, as we view their moral decline, and as we witness them turning from God’s commandments.  We sing the anthem: GOD BLESS AMERICA; how can we expect His blessings if we don’t keep His commandments?

Most Americans Don’t Remember the Price Paid for Liberty

We forget that as we live in this Promised Land of Freedom and Liberty that there have been no wars on this land for over 150 years.  Nowhere in traditional history has that ever happened in any nation.  Wars have been part of every other generation.  God’s tender mercies have been upon us.  Over those 150 years our nation has been involved in several terrible wars, but always elsewhere.  Never here!

I just finished reading the Annotated Edition of the Book of Jasher  which is an incredible read – covering the first 2500 years since Adam as a parallel history to the Bible and vindicating the Bible as well as the Book of Mormon in its 91 chapters.  But here again we see nearly continual wars from the beginning as Satan enters into the hearts of men with contention and bigotry.  The conflict between Isaac and Ismael and Jacob and Esau detailed in this book continues to this day between the Arab nations and Israel.

In all of these conflicts is the clear message that as we keep God’s commandments to love Him and our neighbor that we will both avoid wars as well as have His protection and blessings.

The need for Americans to repent and come to Christ is of paramount importance.

The Prophet Moroni Also Saw Our Day

The Prophet Moroni was specifically speaking to us as he saw our day from his 421 AD vantage point here in America.  As he closes the Book of Mormon record, he profoundly states:
Behold, I would exhort you that when ye shall read these things, if it be wisdom in God that ye should read them, that ye would remember how merciful the Lord hath been unto the children of men, from the creation of Adam even down until the time that ye shall receive these things, and ponder it in your hearts. (Moroni 10:3)

Are We Sufficiently Grateful for the Lord’s Tender Mercies?

Christ, who will eventual bring peace on earth, has greatly blessed this land and its mission to share His glorious gospel message around the world in preparation for His Second Advent.  Our gratitude can be shown by both living and sharing His message of gladness, salvation, and exaltation.  The Lord’s infinite atonement is cap-stoned by His superlative resurrection.  This gave the world direct evidence of the Father’s love in the gift of His Son to open the door to eternal life for all who will receive Him and hearken to His voice.

Let us not be guilty of ingratitude!

Let us not be guilty of ingratitude for all of God’s tender mercies in our lives.  Moroni then shares this great promise that if we will remember how merciful the Lord has been to us, then if we will ask the Lord with sincere hearts, we can know of the truth of this record and its message of God’s love in the gift of His Beloved Son and His infinite atonement in our behalf.

How many thousands or perhaps millions of Father’s children have had this promise answered in their hearts?  I don’t know, but I am confident the number is large.  I am one of them that knows, and I thank the Lord for His tender mercies in my life.  I am greatly blessed, and I delight in sharing His glorious message.  May we each have our hearts filled with gratitude for His tender mercies and be full recipients of His infinite atonement, and let us encourage as many as we can of the importance of truly coming to Christ and repenting of all our sins.

The Bible & The Land of Liberty

The Bible had more influence on making America (USA) a land of liberty than any other book. In fact, KJV Bible has had more influence for good in the world than any other book ever written.

Where are we now with the Bible and prayer being rejected by our government and in schools?  Moral decay is evident and the millennials are turning into non-believers at a rate of one percent a year with now one-third of them in that category.  The attitude is trust in science and technology to solve our problems and not trust in God.

The Land of Liberty

The Bible was the moral code behind the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution.  In support of that moral code Noah Webster’s, The American Spelling Book of 1783 is sprinkled with quotes from the Bible.  It set a publishing record with one hundred million copies being printed over a hundred year period.  It was a major influence in setting a moral code for the nation along with the KJV Bible.

Noah Webster believed, “God’s word, contained in the Bible, has furnished all necessary rules to direct our conduct.”  He further stated, “In my view, the Christian religion is the most important and one of the first things in which all children, under a free government, ought to be instructed…  I mean primitive Christianity in its simplicity as taught by Christ and His apostles… in the revelation of His will to men… in man’s accountability to God for his conduct in this life; and in the indispensable obligation of all men to yield entire obedience to God’s commands in the moral law and in the Gospel.”

Early on, citizens studied and highly valued their bibles.  For instance, Private Walter G. Jones had two holes all the way through his KJV Bible saving his life during the Civil War.  Almost all the soldiers on both sides of the conflict had KJV Bibles in their haversacks, and there are many more stories where soldiers’ lives were saved when bullets hit their Bibles.

This Promised Land

In Chapter 23 of my book “It’s About Time”,  I fully explain how his “Promised Land” was raised up by the Lord for the restoration of the fullness of the gospel in preparation for His Glorious Second Coming, and of the great importance of this Gentile nation to come to the God of this land, who is Jesus the Christ.

We Were A Christian Nation

Because the people of this nation hav in large measure, turned their backs on the God of this Promised Land. We face a major purging time if we don’t repent. Ninety-three percent of the leading American scientists believe the Bible is a myth and, more and more of the world as well, trust in science rather than God.  My book, It’s About Time, is a counter attack on this secular satanic encroachments on Christianity and to help bring about faith in Christ.

There is a fascinating prophecy by Joseph in Egypt, that in the last days people will disbelieve the Bible. However, The Book of Mormon will prove the bible true (2 Nephi 3:11); this is one of the main messages of my book.

In my presentation at the Firm Foundation Expo on April 11th, 2019, I prove from God’s word and from logic, that America is not only the “Promised Land” but why it’s so important to know where the Book of Mormon took place.

In this “Promised Land” a bride will be prepared to meet the Bridegroom. If we will truly come to Christ and repent of all our sins, it will be our great blessing to be part of that holy gathering.  Let us be pure in heart; live the Law of Love; be a Zion people that we may be part of the Bride to meet the Bridegroom.
