Zion and Jerusalem, June 24, 2015
For the bed is shorter than that a man can stretch himself on it: and the covering narrower than that he can wrap himself in it.(Old Testament | Isaiah 28:20)
This is a serious mistake to remove their confederate flag, it will create more contempt that will burst in a full blown rebellion or revolution, and the kid would have won. It is like jade helm or taking the human domain from a country. Then they will try to ban the American Flag. No true American would go for that. I will be the first to hoist my own colors so help me GOD. We need more banners instead to overshadow the evil or dark ones. Imagine a boy scout or a battalion without banners? They are easy targets form all peril and even collateral damage. A flag is an indicator of the identity of a single or a group of subjects. If you take their identity away without killing them all, you cannot define them or recognize them as friends or foes. They become outlaws and even terrorists. Are you all ready for that? I like that Isis had the courage to hoist their colors at last. Now we know who our worst enemy is.
With regards to the Charleston tragedy, it was not the confederate flag that killed all those people or a even a gun, it was an apple gone sour who exploded in rage like in the Charleston Church in Boston, Massachusetts. It was a pimple in the face of South Carolina, don’t make of it a raging volcano please. Those incompetent politicians you have are your problem. Look at what Graham Lindsay wants to do? He is not thinking right. He does not care a blimp for the people he represents. His approach and those that second him, does not solve the problem of hate or racial dysfunction in our society. The solution to this problem is simple. It rests is in teaching good principles and discipline at home, at school and at church and then allow people to govern themselves. This creates men of truth, haters of covetousness and lovers of GOD, not men like Lindsay Graham an and his companions.
Moreover thou shalt provide out of all the people able men, such as fear God, men of truth, hating covetousness; and place such over them, to be rulers of thousands, and rulers of hundreds, rulers of fifties, and rulers of tens:And let them judge the people at all seasons: and it shall be, that every great matter they shall bring unto thee, but every small matter they shall judge: so shall it be easier for thyself, and they shall bear the burden with thee.If thou shalt do this thing, and God command thee so, then thou shalt be able to endure, and all this people shall also go to their place in peace.(Old Testament | Exodus 18:21 - 23)
One of My ancient fathers some ~320 years ACE Captain Mormon, he was chosen to be the leader of his country’s army at sixteen years of age. And there were other like unto him before and after. They already knew how to read and write well, for they also became historians. They must have either been faithful priests or high school graduates by then. If all men were like him and his fellows, the very hosts of hell will freeze and tremble of fear. This is what is written of such men.
AND it came to pass in that same year there began to be a war again between the Nephites and the Lamanites. And notwithstanding I being young, was large in stature; therefore the people of Nephi appointed me that I should be their leader, or the leader of their armies. Therefore it came to pass that in my sixteenth year I did go forth at the head of an army of the Nephites, against the Lamanites; therefore three hundred and twenty and six years had passed away.(Book of Mormon | Mormon 2:1 - 2)
Now the Nephites were taught to defend themselves against their enemies, even to the shedding of blood if it were necessary; yea, and they were also taught never to give an offense, yea, and never to raise the sword except it were against an enemy, except it were to preserve their lives.And this was their faith, that by so doing God would prosper them in the land, or in other words, if they were faithful in keeping the commandments of God that he would prosper them in the land; yea, warn them to flee, or to prepare for war, according to their danger;And also, that God would make it known unto them whither they should go to defend themselves against their enemies, and by so doing, the Lord would deliver them; and this was the faith of Moroni, and his heart did glory in it; not in the shedding of blood but in doing good, in preserving his people, yea, in keeping the commandments of God, yea, and resisting iniquity. Yea, verily, verily I say unto you, if all men had been, and were, and ever would be, like unto Moroni, behold, the very powers of hell would have been shaken forever; yea, the devil would never have power over the hearts of the children of men. Behold, he was a man like unto Ammon, the son of Mosiah, yea, and even the other sons of Mosiah, yea, and also Alma and his sons, for they were all men of God.(Book of Mormon | Alma 48:14 - 18)
If you have this rampant violence going on in the streets of our cities, is only because of the problems at home, at school and at church equally. The moral fiber of this people is week. They cannot overcome vice and debauchery, false indoctrination and temptation. If you had lived in the good old days in my country, Honduras, wayward and loitering young men or even young women will be taken from the streets and the shopping places or drafted into the military or the local police force. In fear many of them disciplined themselves or imposed their own curfews. Almost no one wanted to go to blue camp nor be a subject of harsh military training of abuse such as in the films Full Metal Jacket and/or Jarhead. Once their tempers were disciplined to uniformity, they could use their rage and force in more profitable ways.
Other than that, the approach the judicial system takes to correct social issues is not the proper one. For instance, if there is an aberrant dysfunction in a family because one or both parents are misbehaving antisocially, the first impression we think of is to take away their children. We try to help their innocent children by taking them away from their abusive or malcontent parents, but we end up hurting them placing them in foster care where they grow to be in most cases slothful and unprofitable citizens. The leaves almost never fall too far away from the tree, and if there is wind, those leaves end up in the fire. They are subject to the influence of the devil that they are tossed by the wind here and there like the waves of the sea until they crash and explode in the cold tundra of the rocky ridges. In some cases it is necessary to take children away from their parents when things are so wrong, but the best approach is to help the parents help themselves and then they can help their little ones. Break a family apart and you create more unsustainable trouble of unimaginable consequences. It is not economically viable either because you try to change the environment instead of changing the person. In traffic rules for instance they tell us or compel us to be careful or watchful of bikers on the road or face heavy or stern penalties. That takes most responsibility from the bikers. It is the bikers that need to be more careful than the car drivers. Great or small all vehicles are dangerous machines. And all need to take accountability and responsibility, specially those in more danger of being trodden under foot.
God's approach to problem solving is different. If you want to put man on the moon and colonize it. For that, your approach would be to throw money at it and change the whole environment of the moon, make it hospitable. God's approach would be more militaristic and austeiric. He would change the individual to adapt and live in any environment thru assertive discipline just like the rangers, the marines and the navy seals are trained to make a cozy and nice Christian home sweet home of the very pit or living hell. I have a home in hell myself in the care of ancient relatives who are dead. I was there last night visiting some friends. I was showing a blondy friend of mine my house in and out. The whole place was frozen out sized, even more than Siberia, but it felt cozy that no grill or burning stove was necessary despite the dry wood in store. Even though it was the spirit prison, it felt like home.
Having said that, if no one ones to change their evil ways, it all sums up to two choices. You either hoist up your colors or lift your banners like peaceful free men, or you become a contemptuous realist and hide in the shallow and yet comfortable cover of a false sense of security. IF you chose the later, they time will come and it is nigh at hand when you will have forfeited both, freedom and security. For as it is written, the time will come when you will feel that the bed is shorter than what you can stretch in it, and the covers will not be large enough to protect you from what will befall you.
For the bed is shorter than that a man can stretch himself on it: and the covering narrower than that he can wrap himself in it.(Old Testament | Isaiah 28:20)
You hear of wars and rumors of war, and say that soon there will be wars in far countries, but you do not know the machinations of evil men in your own government and land who promulgate hateful laws to give rise to even more contentions. For it is the lawyers or lawgivers, the judges and the principals entrenched in the seats of government that lay the foundation or pave the road for the destruction of the people. They plot in closed doors in their secret chambers how to control you and destroy you. Here is what the prophets and the LORD himself had to say, not then, but in these latter days with regards to the wrath to come. I will start with the latest advice and counsel most important to our own generation first which say:
The World Needs Pioneers Today
The passage of time dims our memories and diminishes our appreciation for those who walked the path of pain, leaving behind a tear-marked trail of nameless graves. But what of today’s challenges? Are there no rocky roads to travel, no rugged mountains to climb, no chasms to cross, no trails to blaze, no rivers to ford? Or is there a very present need for that pioneer spirit to guide us away from the dangers that threaten to engulf us and to lead us to a Zion of safety?In the decades since the end of World War II, standards of morality have lowered again and again. Crime spirals upward; decency careens downward. Many are on a giant roller coaster of disaster, seeking the thrills of the moment while sacrificing the joys of eternity. Thus we forfeit peace.We forget how the Greeks and Romans prevailed magnificently in a barbaric world and how that triumph ended—how a slackness and softness finally overcame them to their ruin. In the end, more than they wanted freedom, they wanted security and a comfortable life; and they lost all—comfort and security and freedom.Do not yield to Satan’s enticements; rather, stand firm for truth. The unsatisfied yearnings of the soul will not be met by a never-ending quest for joy amidst the thrills of sensation and vice. Vice never leads to virtue. Hate never promotes love. Cowardice never gives courage. Doubt never inspires faith.Some find it difficult to withstand the mocking and unsavory remarks of foolish ones who ridicule chastity, honesty, and obedience to God’s commands. But the world has ever belittled adherence to principle. When Noah was instructed to build an ark, the foolish populace looked at the cloudless sky and then scoffed and jeered—until the rain came.Must we learn such costly lessons over and over again? Times change, but truth persists. When we fail to profit from the experiences of the past, we are doomed to repeat them with all their heartache, suffering, and anguish. Haven’t we the wisdom to obey Him who knows the beginning from the end—our Lord, who designed the plan of salvation—rather than that serpent, who despised its beauty?A dictionary defines a pioneer as “one who goes before to prepare or open up the way for others to follow.”3 Can we somehow muster the courage and steadfastness of purpose that characterized the pioneers of a former generation? Can you and I, in actual fact, be pioneers?I know we can be. Oh, how the world needs pioneers today!
Revelation and prophecy on war, given through Joseph Smith the Prophet, December 25, 1832. HC 1:301–302. This section was received at a time when the brethren were reflecting and reasoning upon African slavery on the American continent and the slavery of the children of men throughout the world.
1–4, War foretold between the Northern States and the Southern States;
5–8, Great calamities shall fall upon all the inhabitants of the earth.
VERILY, thus saith the Lord concerning the wars that will shortly come to pass, beginning at the rebellion of South Carolina, which will eventually terminate in the death and misery of many souls.And the time will come that war will be poured out upon all nations, beginning at this place.For behold, the Southern States shall be divided against the Northern States, and the Southern States will call on other nations, even the nation of Great Britain, as it is called, and they shall also call upon other nations, in order to defend themselves against other nations; and then war shall be poured out upon all nations.And it shall come to pass, after many days, slaves shall rise up against their masters, who shall be marshaled and disciplined for war. And it shall come to pass also that the remnants who are left of the land will marshal themselves, and shall become exceedingly angry, and shall vex the Gentiles with a sore vexation.And thus, with the sword and by bloodshed the inhabitants of the earth shall mourn; and with famine, and plague, and earthquake, and the thunder of heaven, and the fierce and vivid lightning also, shall the inhabitants of the earth be made to feel the wrath, and indignation, and chastening hand of an Almighty God, until the consumption decreed hath made a full end of all nations;That the cry of the saints, and of the blood of the saints, shall cease to come up into the ears of the Lord of Sabaoth, from the earth, to be avenged of their enemies.Wherefore, stand ye in holy places, and be not moved, until the day of the Lord come; for behold, it cometh quickly, saith the Lord. Amen.(Doctrine and Covenants | Section 87:Heading - 8)And again, I say unto you that the enemy in the secret chambers seeketh your lives.Ye hear of wars in far countries, and you say that there will soon be great wars in far countries, but ye know not the hearts of men in your own land.I tell you these things because of your prayers; wherefore, treasure up wisdom in your bosoms, lest the wickedness of men reveal these things unto you by their wickedness, in a manner which shall speak in your ears with a voice louder than that which shall shake the earth; but if ye are prepared ye shall not fear.(Doctrine and Covenants | Section 38:28 - 30)
Hoist Your Colours
I am not here to entertain you or to educate you, nor to proselyte you. I am here to warn you by declaring to you the mind of the LORD for this day and age with a borrowed mouth. I hear your complains or the things that are important to you; and then I want to help you, so I enquire of the LORD and the LORD speaks. But you think it is just a nonsense and incomprehensible blog, as if I spoke in a strange language or with stammering lips. Yet you will not hear me. The LORD spoke about his day and age when he said:
For with stammering lips and another tongue will he speak to this people. To whom he said, This is the rest wherewith ye may cause the weary to rest; and this is the refreshing: yet they would not hear.(Old Testament | Isaiah 28:11 - 12)
It is not the blog, but you who have piled to yourself vain teachers and news analysts and paid prognosticators and sensationalist news casters or anchors that you are dull of hearing. You like the vain words they speak. Both them and you keep learning but never coming to a knowledge of the truth or the knowledge of things as they are, as they have been or as they are to come. I have been doing this for seven continuous years, but you will not hear me. You hate me for what I do, you take no pleasure in the word of the LORD. He may not be saying nice things or soothing words to the carnal mind, but at least he is warning us. And he said that if we are prepared we will not fear when his wrath is poured without measure upon the wicked.
This is the burden of the LORD upon my shoulders. I have told you this plainly before, not it is the time for the sermons of heaven and for the principal wheat among you to be scattered and smashed. And the fitches in your midst are to be beaten with a staff; and the cumin with a rod. The cornbread will be bruised because the LORD will not thresh his food with the wheel of his cart nor trample it with his horses. In other words, everyone will be rewarded according to their classes and works inside and outside the gate. He that is worthy of many stripes will be stripped much and he that is worthy of a few stripes will be beaten a little. Now you know that the LORD is wonderful and counseling. It is he speaking to you and nor me.
To whom shall I speak, and give warning, that they may hear? behold, their ear is uncircumcised, and they cannot hearken: behold, the word of the LORD is unto them a reproach; they have no delight in it.
(Old Testament Jeremiah 6:10)
For the LORD shall rise up as in mount Perazim, he shall be wroth as in the valley of Gibeon, that he may do his work, his strange work; and bring to pass his act, his strange act.
Now therefore be ye not mockers, lest your bands be made strong: for I have heard from the Lord GOD of hosts a consumption, even determined upon the whole earth.
Give ye ear, and hear my voice; hearken, and hear my speech. Doth the plowman plow all day to sow? doth he open and break the clods of his ground? When he hath made plain the face thereof, doth he not cast abroad the fitches, and scatter the cummin, and cast in the principal wheat and the appointed barley and the rie in their place?For his God doth instruct him to discretion, and doth teach him.For the fitches are not threshed with a threshing instrument, neither is a cart wheel turned about upon the cummin; but the fitches are beaten out with a staff, and the cummin with a rod.Bread corn is bruised; because he will not ever be threshing it, nor break it with the wheel of his cart, nor bruise it with his horsemen.This also cometh forth from the LORD of hosts, which is wonderful in counsel, and excellent in working.(Old Testament | Isaiah 28:21 - 29)
I can do this forever, but the spirit restrains me. I fear it will cease to contend with you for good and leave you to yourselves to kicks against the pricks until you cease to exist as a nation, even as a civilization as it has hitherto happened upon these lands before. The Antediluvians were destroyed by water, the Jadeites annihilated themselves to the last man standing. The Nephites were destroyed by the Lamanites and the Laminates were scattered and destroyed almost to extinction by you. Now if you do not get your act together, the LORD is going to destroy you even if he has to protect us with fire. For so it is written:
And the blood of that great and abominable church, which is the whore of all the earth, shall turn upon their own heads; for they shall war among themselves, and the sword of their own hands shall fall upon their own heads, and they shall be drunken with their own blood.And every nation which shall war against thee, O house of Israel, shall be turned one against another, and they shall fall into the pit which they digged to ensnare the people of the Lord. And all that fight against Zion shall be destroyed, and that great whore, who hath perverted the right ways of the Lord, yea, that great and abominable church, shall tumble to the dust and great shall be the fall of it.For behold, saith the prophet, the time cometh speedily that Satan shall have no more power over the hearts of the children of men; for the day soon cometh that all the proud and they who do wickedly shall be as stubble; and the day cometh that they must be burned.For the time soon cometh that the fulness of the wrath of God shall be poured out upon all the children of men; for he will not suffer that the wicked shall destroy the righteous.Wherefore, he will preserve the righteous by his power, even if it so be that the fulness of his wrath must come, and the righteous be preserved, even unto the destruction of their enemies by fire. Wherefore, the righteous need not fear; for thus saith the prophet, they shall be saved, even if it so be as by fire.Behold, my brethren, I say unto you, that these things must shortly come; yea, even blood, and fire, and vapor of smoke must come; and it must needs be upon the face of this earth; and it cometh unto men according to the flesh if it so be that they will harden their hearts against the Holy One of Israel.For behold, the righteous shall not perish; for the time surely must come that all they who fight against Zion shall be cut off.And the Lord will surely prepare a way for his people, unto the fulfilling of the words of Moses, which he spake, saying: A prophet shall the Lord your God raise up unto you, like unto me; him shall ye hear in all things whatsoever he shall say unto you. And it shall come to pass that all those who will not hear that prophet shall be cut off from among the people.(Book of Mormon | 1 Nephi 22:13 - 20)
Now, Son of Zion look and learn and never forget. Jesus Christ the creator of heaven and earth is the GOD of these lands. All who live upon this continent will serve him or be cut off when they are rip in iniquity and his fury and wrath falls upon them without measure as the ancients before us suffered because they forgot the God that blessed and sustained them. There are many blessings and curses that have been predicated upon all the people that live here, that has lived here and that will continue to live here. To this end we exist to warn you of great perils and dangers. What then can you say against these things? Whatever you say it matters not, for the word of the Lord must be fulfilled. Just remember that no one is destroyed without a fair and stern warning, for the LORD will do nothing without first revealing his secrets unto his servants the prophets.
Here goes a stern warning:
Brutal and degenerate depravity and perversion of the beast.What can we Learn of Isis Horrors?
“The last two blogs that I wrote are like live torpedoes. They contain actual live munition or revelation from our prophets. They are the Lords's ultimatum for us all to repent or else we will suffer the pain of the ancient Jaredited and Nephites if not worst. Take it or leave it. The choice has always been yours from yours truly.And they have become strong in their perversion; and they are alike brutal, sparing none, neither old nor young; and they delight in everything save that which is good; and the suffering of our women and our children upon all the face of this land doth exceed everything; yea, tongue cannot tell, neither can it be written.And now, my son, I dwell no longer upon this horrible scene. Behold, thou knowest the wickedness of this people; thou knowest that they are without principle, and past feeling; and their wickedness doth exceed that of the Lamanites.Behold, my son, I cannot recommend them unto God lest he should smite me. Moroni 9:19-21”
Yea, thus saith the still small voice, which whispereth through and pierceth all things, and often times it maketh my bones to quake while it maketh manifest, saying:And it shall come to pass that I, the Lord God, will send one mighty and strong, holding the scepter of power in his hand, clothed with light for a covering, whose mouth shall utter words, eternal words; while his bowels shall be a fountain of truth, to set in order the house of God, and to arrange by lot the inheritances of the saints whose names are found, and the names of their fathers, and of their children, enrolled in the book of the law of God; while that man, who was called of God and appointed, that putteth forth his hand to steady the ark of God, shall fall by the shaft of death, like as a tree that is smitten by the vivid shaft of lightning.And all they who are not found written in the book of remembrance shall find none inheritance in that day, but they shall be cut asunder, and their portion shall be appointed them among unbelievers, where are wailing and gnashing of teeth.These things I say not of myself; therefore, as the Lord speaketh, he will also fulfil.And they who are of the High Priesthood, whose names are not found written in the book of the law, or that are found to have apostatized, or to have been cut off from the church, as well as the lesser priesthood, or the members, in that day shall not find an inheritance among the saints of the Most High;Therefore, it shall be done unto them as unto the children of the priest, as will be found recorded in the second chapter and sixty–first and second verses of Ezra.(Doctrine and Covenants | Section 85:6 - 12)
“It is impossible for Ephraim’s prophets to provide proper spiritual nurture to Jehovah’s people by performing a mélange of improper procedures that yield confusion. When things reach that point—when a simple farmer’s inspiration (vv 26, 29) surpasses that of his people’s leaders (vv 7, 15)—Jehovah sets his house in order (Isaiah 1:25-26; 66:6). The terms “wonderful counsel” establish word links to Jehovah’s servant—“the man who performs my counsel” (Isaiah 46:11), upon whom rests the “spirit of counsel” (Isaiah 11:2), and who exemplifies the function of a “wonderful counselor” (Isaiah 9:6).”
Can two walk together, except they be agreed?Will a lion roar in the forest, when he hath no prey? will a young lion cry out of his den, if he have taken nothing?Can a bird fall in a snare upon the earth, where no gin is for him? shall one take up a snare from the earth, and have taken nothing at all?Shall a trumpet be blown in the city, and the people not be afraid? shall there be evil in a city, and the LORD hath not Know it?Surely the Lord GOD will do nothing, but he revealeth his secret unto his servants the prophets.The lion hath roared, who will not fear? the Lord GOD hath spoken, who can but prophesy?Publish in the palaces at Ashdod, and in the palaces in the land of Egypt, and say, Assemble yourselves upon the mountains of Samaria, and behold the great tumults in the midst thereof, and the oppressed in the midst thereof.For they know not to do right, saith the LORD, who store up violence and robbery in their palaces.Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD; An adversary there shall be even round about the land; and he shall bring down thy strength from thee, and thy palaces shall be spoiled.Thus saith the LORD; As the shepherd taketh out of the mouth of the lion two legs, or a piece of an ear; so shall the children of Israel be taken out that dwell in Samaria in the corner of a bed, and in Damascus in a couch.Hear ye, and testify in the house of Jacob, saith the Lord GOD, the God of hosts, That in the day that I shall visit the transgressions of Israel upon him I will also visit the altars of Beth-el: and the horns of the altar shall be cut off, and fall to the ground.And I will smite the winter house with the summer house; and the houses of ivory shall perish, and the great houses shall have an end, saith the LORD.(Old Testament | Amos 3:3 - 15)
Son of the Republic Look and Learn
|The Title of Liberty|
George Washington's Marvelous Vision Excertp
"And again I heard the mysterious voice saying "Son of the Republic, look and learn." At this the dark, shadowy angel placed a trumpet to his mouth, and blew three distinct blasts; and taking water from the ocean, he sprinkled it upon Europe, Asia and Africa. Then my eyes beheld a fearful scene: From each of these countries arose thick, black clouds that were soon joined into one. Throughout this mass there gleamed a dark red light by which I saw hordes of armed men, who, moving with the cloud, marched by land and sailed by sea to America.
Our country was enveloped in this volume of cloud, and I saw these vast armies devastate the whole county and burn the villages, towns and cities that I beheld springing up. As my ears listened to the thundering of the cannon, clashing of sword, and the shouts and cries of millions in mortal combat, I heard again the mysterious voice saying, "Son of the Republic, look and learn"
Why We Are Afraid
A 1400 Year Secret, by Dr Bill Warner
When the voice had ceased, the dark shadowy angel placed his trumpet once more to his mouth, and blew a long and fearful blast.
"Instantly a light as of a thousand suns shone down from above me, and pierced and broke into fragments the dark cloud which enveloped America. At the same moment the angel upon whose head still shone the word Zion, and who bore our national flag in one hand and a sword in the other, descended from the heavens attended by legions of white spirits. These immediately joined the inhabitants of America, who I perceived were will nigh overcome, but who immediately taking courage again, closed up their broken ranks and renewed the battle.Again, amid the fearful noise of the conflict, I heard the mysterious voice saying, "Son of the Republic, look and learn." As the voice ceased, the shadowy angel for the last time dipped water from the ocean and sprinkled it upon America. Instantly the dark cloud rolled back, together with the armies it had brought, leaving the inhabitants of the land victorious!Then once more I beheld the villages, towns and cities springing up where I had seen them before, while the bright angel, planting the azure standard he had brought in the midst of them, cried with a loud voice: "While the stars remain, and the heavens send down dew upon the earth, so long shall the Union last." And taking from his brow the crown on which blazoned the word "Union," he placed it upon the Standard while the people, kneeling down, said, "Amen."
http://www.ushistory.org/valleyforge/washington/vision.htmlNow, the choice is your, chose ye this day whom you will serve, if Jesus Christ and His cause, which is the cause of all Christians or your own ways, which are the ways of Baal and baaling, selling your self for money like the mother of harlot. You either amend your ways and your doings, unite as the God of these lands intends and hoist your colors or perish. I don’t know about you, but these are my colors:
And it came to pass that he rent his coat; and he took a piece thereof, and wrote upon it—In memory of our God, our religion, and freedom, and our peace, our wives, and our children—and he fastened it upon the end of a pole.And he fastened on his head–plate, and his breastplate, and his shields, and girded on his armor about his loins; and he took the pole, which had on the end thereof his rent coat, (and he called it the title of liberty) and he bowed himself to the earth, and he prayed mightily unto his God for the blessings of liberty to rest upon his brethren, so long as there should a band of Christians remain to possess the land—For thus were all the true believers of Christ, who belonged to the church of God, called by those who did not belong to the church. And those who did belong to the church were faithful; yea, all those who were true believers in Christ took upon them, gladly, the name of Christ, or Christians as they were called, because of their belief in Christ who should come.And therefore, at this time, Moroni prayed that the cause of the Christians, and the freedom of the land might be favored.And it came to pass that when he had poured out his soul to God, he named all the land which was south of the land Desolation, yea, and in fine, all the land, both on the north and on the south—A chosen land, and the land of liberty.And he said: Surely God shall not suffer that we, who are despised because we take upon us the name of Christ, shall be trodden down and destroyed, until we bring it upon us by our own transgressions.And when Moroni had said these words, he went forth among the people, waving the rent part of his garment in the air, that all might see the writing which he had written upon the rent part, and crying with a loud voice, saying:Behold, whosoever will maintain this title upon the land, let them come forth in the strength of the Lord, and enter into a covenant that they will maintain their rights, and their religion, that the Lord God may bless them.And it came to pass that when Moroni had proclaimed these words, behold, the people came running together with their armor girded about their loins, rending their garments in token, or as a covenant, that they would not forsake the Lord their God; or, in other words, if they should transgress the commandments of God, or fall into transgression, and be ashamed to take upon them the name of Christ, the Lord should rend them even as they had rent their garments.(Book of Mormon | Alma 46:12 - 21)
