Why is it so important for us to know how the New Jerusalem will be established?
A New Jerusalem will be built in the American continent by Joseph”‘s tribe. His prophecies are rejected, and he is sent away, but predicts the fall of the Jaredites. The people’s iniquity cause a curse on the land, and Coriantum starts yet another war. Many of the Jaredites die in battle, and the holy ghost leaves them. The entire nation is destroyed.
“And when these things come, bringeth to pass the scripture which saith, there are they who were first, who shall be last; and there are they who were last, who shall be first.”
Rachael D: I thought about how we are able to choose for ourselves which side we are on. During the book of Ether, we see the kingdom being passed down through many generations. Righteous kings followed wicked kings and wicked kings followed righteous kings. It reminds me how important it is for us to seek out the truth and live in righteousness even if this is different to our friends and family.
