Today is Super Tuesday. One of the two most crucial days in the presidential primary. (The other is the Tuesday two weeks from now, March 15th.) The Book of Mormon tells us that democracy is a good thing, because the voice of the people will, in most cases, choose good over evil.
Then it follows with a warning.
And if the time comes that the voice of the people doth choose iniquity, then is the time that the judgments of God will come upon you; yea, then is the time he will visit you with great destruction even as he has hitherto visited this land.
Relevant, don’t you think?
I think some judgment will be refreshing to see, actually. It’s both a terrifying and exciting time. Terrifying because of all the awful things that will happen to both nations and souls. Exciting because the hand of God is going to be seen more and more prevalently until that great last day. My father-in-law, who is not a Mormon, commented recently to me, “It does seem like we’re leading up to a crescendo.”
The lines are getting sharper and sharper. The grays are separating, gathering into black and into white. That means it’s our responsibility now more than ever to stand up. To awake, and arise.
I think Judgment Day, when it comes, will happen on a Tuesday.
