Sacred Cow #5: It’s too late

What is a sacred cow?  My definition is anything that is believed based only on tradition, and has little to zero basis on actual fact. These beliefs are held so strongly that the “worshiper” declares “blasphemy!” to anyone that challenges said belief.

Sacred Cow #5: It’s too late

Nothing pleases Satan more than the attitude that “It’s too late” or “It is ‘prophecy’ so there is nothing we can do”.  This attitude takes Satan’s most powerful enemies (holders of the Priesthood) out of the picture.

This has been a prevalent lie spread amongst the followers of Christ for decades and has been refuted by leaders of Christ’s church as a lie from Satan.

Sixth: ‘Don’t worry,’ says the devil ‘the Lord will protect you, and besides the world is so corrupt and heading toward destruction at such a pace that you can’t stop it, so why try.’ Well to begin with, the Lord will not protect us unless we do our part. But many of the prophecies referring to America’s preservation are conditional. That is, if we do our duty we can be preserved, and if not then we shall be destroyed. This means that a good deal of the responsibility lies with the priesthood of this Church as to what happens to America and as to how much tragedy can be avoided” Ezra Taft Benson, General Conference, April 1965

Here we learn that it is a lie from Satan that you can’t stop the destruction of freedom, and it’s a lie that we should not try.  We learn that our preservation as a people and as individuals depends on what we try to do, and that what happens is either because of, or the fault of the actions (or lack thereof) of Priesthood holders. (This last sentence is a little confusing. Maybe break it up into two?)

In fact, “The Lord has declared that before the second coming of Christ, it will be necessary to “destroy the secret works of darkness” in order to preserve the land of Zion” the Americas. (2 Nephi 10:11–16.) – Ezra Taft Benson, General Conference, Sept. 1961

The FACT is, the conspiracy to destroy freedom will be destroyed in America BEFORE Christ comes again.  The only question that remains is; will you do your part or will you stand on the side lines as an enemy to the plan of God?

    Very true. Despite how dark the day, the final battle is still to be played out & won here in America. Those who give up & go along with the evil surrounding us, are just choosing to support & join the Adversary’s team.

    Unfortunately, everyone, even in the Church, except a rare few, seems to have given up today & is going along with evil.

    What if I have the sentiment, albeit a futile attempt to save the country, I fight/prepare anyway?

    I am all for doing all I can to promote the Constitution, liberty, and correct political doctrine as revealed by the Spirit of Truth.

    I am not fatalistic about the imminent demise of the United States of America. There is no question as to whether or not the US has an expiration date. Of course, like all earthly kingdoms, it has and will have a beginning and an end. It will run its course from genesis to self-destruct. However, knowing that is no reason to give up the fight for good government and preserving our rights.

    It needs to be recognized that it is vital that we align ourselves with correct political ideology in order to embrace, receive, and be sanctified by truth. That is the value I place in this website and in Bryan’s other websites.

    It also needs to be recognized that our covenant commitment is to establish ZION, not to perpetuate the existence of the United States into eternity. After all the questions and answers, theories, solutions, and regurgitations, I think that you will find that establishing ZION is the one and only solution to the problems vexing mankind. The best way we can fight for liberty, our rights, and for our very lives, is to seek to perfect our faith in Jesus Chrsit to the extent that we become ZION individuals, clothed with power and authority from God in doing His work. True servants of Christ cannot be ignored or dismissed. Christ is Almighty and those who walk by His power will have invincible influence in promoting the virtues and values promoted by the Latter Day Saints.

    D&C 87:6 “And thus, with the sword and by bloodshed … 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;” (emphasis added)

    This scripture does not except the United States. The only exceptionalism in the Lord’s eyes is that which is brought about by righteousness. Just before the Millennium, the world will be as in the days of Noah – covered in wickedness and violence.

    • Jerry Sutton says:

      Enoch and his people escaped the flood. Noah and family, escaped, city of Nineavah, Lot escaped, there are many examples including us as individuals.
      Prophecy also states that the U. S. Will be governed by 50. When The Lord returns doesn’t mean the U.S. couldn’t be intact but would be changed on his arrival.
