Study question: Why do many prophets take the time to talk about the destruction of the wicked instead of only talking about hopeful and righteous things?
Daily summary: The destruction of Assyria is a type of the destruction of the wicked at the Second Coming. Few people will be left after the Lord comes again. The remnant of Jacob will return in that day. The stem of Jesse (Christ) will judge in righteousness. The knowledge of God will cover the earth in the Millennium. In the millennial day all men will praise the Lord and He will dwell among them. The destruction of Babylon is a type of the destruction at the Second Coming. Israel will be gathered and will enjoy millennial rest. Lucifer was cast out of heaven for rebellion. Israel will triumph over Babylon. Compare Isaiah 10-14.
Daily Scripture: 2 Nephi 22:2 “Behold, God is my salvation; I will trust, and not be afraid; for the Lord Jehovah is my strength and my song; he also has become my salvation.”
Rachael D: We live in a fallen world and we are surrounded by wickedness and righteousness. Prophets teach us and warm us so we can make choices and understand the consequences.
