Promised Land/Land of Promise
“… God, in an effort to further His ultimate design for His children, created and offered up America by and through a ‘national covenant’. It is a covenant between God and the people of our nation, and it comes complete with specific obligations, promised blessings, and divine instruction. It is a covenant whose principle fruit is the development, defense and distribution of three very specific socio-economic blessings: 1) Liberty, 2) Protection, and 3) Prosperity. It is a covenant that, through imparting these blessings, enhances and maximizes God’s gift of agency unto personal salvation.” Timothy Ballard from his series “The American Covenant” One Nation Under God; p.iv.
For the many denominations of “Mormonism’, that have diverged from its original form, they all know that the land of America has been a promised land from the very beginning. It being the home of Adam and Eve and the Garden of Eden; later, after the division of the land in the days of Peleg, at the time of the tower of Babel, the Jaredite’s were led to this land of promise; and then the descendants of Lehi around 600 B.C; and then the Pilgrim’s, Puritans and others of the House of Ephraim escaping the religious persecutions of Europe. Except for this latter group all the others ripened in sin and wickedness and were swept off the land as forewarned of the Lord, if they failed to heed the terms of their covenant on the land. The same destruction is promised for the current group of inhabitants, as the times of the fullness of the Gentiles is here.
The covenantal promise:
2 Nephi 1: 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.
2 Nephi 10: 10 But behold, this land, said God, shall be a land of thine inheritance, and the Gentiles shall be blessed upon the land. 11 And this land shall be a land of liberty unto the Gentiles, and there shall be no kings upon the land, who shall raise up unto the Gentiles. 12 And I will fortify this land against all other nations. 13 And he that fighteth against Zion shall perish, saith God. 14 For he that raiseth up a king against me shall perish, for I, the Lord, the king of heaven, will be their king, and I will be a light unto them forever, that hear my words.
15 Wherefore, for this cause, that my covenants may be fulfilled which I have made unto the children of men, that I will do unto them while they are in the flesh, I must needs destroy the secret works of darkness, and of murders, and of abominations.
16 Wherefore, he that fighteth against Zion, both Jew and Gentile, both bond and free, both male and female, shall perish; for they are they who are the whore of all the earth; for they who are not for me are against me, saith our God. 17 For I will fulfil my promises which I have made unto the children of men, that I will do unto them while they are in the flesh
Ether 2: 8-11 8 And he had sworn in his wrath unto the brother of Jared, that whoso should possess this land of promise, from that time henceforth and forever, should serve him, the true and only God, or they should be swept off when the fulness of his wrath should come upon them. 9 And now, we can behold the decrees of God concerning this land, that it is a land of promise; and whatsoever nation shall possess it shall serve God, or they shall be swept off when the fulness of his wrath shall come upon them. And the fulness of his wrath cometh upon them when they are ripened in iniquity. And this cometh unto you, O ye Gentiles, that ye may know the decrees of God—that ye may repent, and not continue in your iniquities until the fulness come, that ye may not bring down the fulness of the wrath of God upon you as the inhabitants of the land have hitherto done. 12 Behold, this is a choice land, and whatsoever nation shall possess it shall be free from bondage, and from captivity, and from all other nations under heaven, if they will but serve the God of the land, who is Jesus Christ, who hath been manifested by the things which we have written.
The covenantal warning:
Ether 8: 18 And it came to pass that they formed a secret combination, even as they of old; which combination is most abominable and wicked above all, in the sight of God;
19 For the Lord worketh not in secret combinations, neither doth he will that man should shed blood, but in all things hath forbidden it, from the beginning of man.
20 And now I, Moroni, do not write the manner of their oaths and combinations, for it hath been made known unto me that they are had among all people, and they are had among the Lamanites.
21 And they have caused the destruction of this people of whom I am now speaking, and also the destruction of the people of Nephi.
22 And whatsoever nation shall uphold such secret combinations, to get power and gain, until they shall spread over the nation, behold, they shall be destroyed; for the Lord will not suffer that the blood of his saints, which shall be shed by them, shall always cry unto him from the ground for vengeance upon them and yet he avenge them not.
23 Wherefore, O ye Gentiles, it is wisdom in God that these things should be shown unto you, that thereby ye may repent of your sins, and suffer not that these murderous combinations shall get above you, which are built up to get power and gain—and the work, yea, even the work of destruction come upon you, yea, even the sword of the justice of the Eternal God shall fall upon you, to your overthrow and destruction if ye shall suffer these things to be.
24 Wherefore, the Lord commandeth you, when ye shall see these things come among you that ye shall awake to a sense of your awful situation, because of this secret combination which shall be among you; or wo be unto it, because of the blood of them who have been slain; for they cry from the dust for vengeance upon it, and also upon those who built it up.
25 For it cometh to pass that whoso buildeth it up seeketh to overthrow the freedom of all lands, nations, and countries; and it bringeth to pass the destruction of all people, for it is built up by the devil, who is the father of all lies; even that same liar who beguiled our first parents, yea, even that same liar who hath caused man to commit murder from the beginning; who hath hardened the hearts of men that they have murdered the prophets, and stoned them, and cast them out from the beginning.
So, how have we done?
Secret-Combinations have been with us since our nation’s inception, but now openly manifest. The banks, League of Nations, United Nations, Council on Foreign Relations, The Tri-lateral commission, the Health Department, the pharmaceutical-allopathic medicine model (also utilizing the evil scientists from the Third Reich and I.G. Farben), the WHO, the world economic forum, the NIH and CDC, CIA, FBI, NSA, Bilderberg group, the Rockefeller Foundation, the Bill and Melinda Gates foundation, Illuminati, and really so many more that you can hardly imagine. None of these have your best interest in mind and all are part of the Beast system culminating in the end of times. There is no ‘normal’ from here on out.
Murders are too many to discuss by governmental and non-governmental organizations; while many have and will come through the pharmaceutical industry and by vaccinations. Do you realize that those involved in the latter fields are those who believe in population control and want to reduce the world’s population by 80-90%, and you trust them with your health? Baalism- the blood sacrifice of born and unborn children is over 60 million. Pedophilia is rampant among our elected officials with many being compromised by their visits to Epstein’s island, or caught in China’s honey pot program.
Treason applies for most of the presidents since Eisenhower, excepting Kennedy, Regan and Trump; for most of those in Congress in the 21st Century and in the Justice Department and Supreme Court. They have utterly failed to uphold their oath to the Constitution. The Republic has been gone for some time and democracy is now officially dead when an oligarchy currently rules in Washington that was not elected by the voice of the people and all courts high and low refuse to hear documented evidence of the greatest election fraud that has occurred in our history. Obama has run a shadow presidency ever since he left office ; subverting the presidency and had done significant damage through the brown shirt (Nazi program),militarizing FEMA and passing laws that allows the government the right to take your food, supplies and protection under emergency conditions; getting rid of patriotic generals in the military and stacking the lower courts. Nearly half of our governors and most of Congress have ties with China. And there is so much more.
First there was the flood, then Sodom and Gomorrah, now…
I will state my opinion about Trump and what he did that was right. He made us energy independent (that is being undone); he upheld the Constitution and the rule of law throughout his tenure (that is being undone); he sustained our Founding Fathers, acknowledged our national covenant before God and that we are a nation under God (that is being undone); he supported the first and second amendment, the Bill of Rights, and the Equal Rights Amendment (that is being undone). He exposed the deep state and players as he ran for the presidency and since (they flaunt that openly). He is a patriot. He protected our national sovereignty (that is being undone). There are multiple things I am disappointed with too, but there are few presidents that have come close to accomplishing these things.
Trumps election in 2016 caught them off guard, but they made sure with the Dominion voting machines, mail in ballots, unconstitutional legislation, and fraudulent ballots, that this would not happen again. In spite of the proven internet fraud (with internet exposure and documented IP addresses involving international interference by China (over 60%), Italy, Germany, Venezuela, Iran and others), over 1000 eye witness affidavit’s and other information, there is a major lack of an outcry against such treachery.
The national covenant is broken. We are either apathetic or just don’t know what to do. At least the voters can claim that they supported the right ideals as the estimated sweep was at least 79 million to 69 million votes. But, that being said, when a nation on this land chooses to uphold a wicked man or men to head their government they are ripe for destruction (Mosiah 29:27; Alma 10:19; Helaman 5:2). Or is it that there is a lack of a leader to lead us to do what is right and needed. Do we live in fear? Do we lack a captain Moroni?
One thing that seems to be is that under Trump we had four years to rise to the occasion and repent for breaking the national covenant. Obama said that we were no longer a Christian nation; maybe we should have stood up (now Christians are under attack and considered the enemy); and recently a New York congressman said that the will of God has nothing to do with this Congress (Um, I am not sure that is the right thing to say).
There are a few things related to the Washington Monument that I think might be important. The monument includes inscriptions and prayers for the well-being of the nation, and placed in the corner-stone is a Bible. Engraved upon the monument are the words: “Holiness to the Lord” and upon the capstone of the Monument, facing symbolically to the East, in a place that only Heaven can see, are the words Laus Deo, which means “Praise be to God.” This should cause us to pause, drop to our knees and repent.
There are many evidences of our nation repenting at the time of the Revolutionary and Civil Wars that allowed for God’s favor and recovery. Too many looked for Trump to be their savior. He was never that. Through him the Lord gave us a little more time. It appears that time has run out. There is only one Savior and He is mighty to save. The ultimate promise for this land is for the establishment of Zion. Even though all are invited it is the righteous that will be gathered there and the righteous are those who are repenting. It is He who will gather and it is He who will fight their battles. Turn and face Him, trust Him, believe Him and come unto Him. As we strive to become one with Him, we will be in better shape to become one with each other.
Now, instead of Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness the other guys plan reigns: Marxism-Socialism-Communism. This will not stand.
This national covenant is manifested through and within the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution of the United States of America. Our founding fathers understood God’s hand in the creation of this nation and we had better wake up or as the Lord invites us to: “Awake and Arise”.
When a train is coming at you, it is not always apparent just how fast it will arrive where you are standing, but it will arrive and you probably should move, for it won’t make a course correction.
