For behold, the Lord saw that his people began to
work in darkness,
yea, work secret murders and abominations;
therefore the Lord said, if they did not repent
they should be destroyed from off the face of the earth.
.I will bring forth out of darkness unto light
all their secret works and their abominations;
and except they repent
I will destroy them from off the face of the earth;
and I will bring to light all their secrets and abominations,
unto every nation that shall hereafter possess the land.
And now, my son, we see that they did not repent;
therefore they have been destroyed,
and thus far the word of God has been fulfilled;

We Need To Be Taking Light To Those In Darkness
If truth is Light, then the absence of light is darkness.
Light is more powerful than darkness.
You cannot take darkness into a lighted room and make it dark. But, you can take a darkened room and fill it with light.
When God created this world, He created the day and the night; Light and darkness.
“And God said, Let there be light: and there was light.
And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years:
15 And let them be for lights in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth: and it was so.” Gen. 1: 3, 14-15
“For as the light of the morning cometh out of the east, and shineth even unto the west, and covereth the whole earth, so shall also the coming of the Son of Man be.” JS-M 1: 26
And God allowed there be no light, or darkness.
“Let that day be darkness; let not God regard it from above, neither let the light shine upon it.
Let the stars of the twilight thereof be dark; let it look for light, but have none; neither let it see the dawning of the day.” Gen. 1: 3, 14-15
The darkness is the glory of Satan or Lucifer, the devil. (No image available because Satan has no body.)
And was called Perdition, for the heavens wept over him—he was Lucifer, a son of the morning.
27 And we beheld, and lo, he is fallen! is fallen, even a son of the morning!” D&C 76: 26-27
Why must there be day and night; light and darkness;
good and evil?
“For it must needs be, that there is an opposition in all things. If not so, my first-born in the wilderness, righteousness could not be brought to pass, neither wickedness, neither holiness nor misery, neither good nor bad. Wherefore, all things must needs be a compound in one; wherefore, if it should be one body it must needs remain as dead, having no life neither death, nor corruption nor incorruption, happiness nor misery, neither sense nor insensibility.
And to bring about his eternal purposes in the end of man, after he had created our first parents, and the beasts of the field and the fowls of the air, and in fine, all things which are created, it must needs be that there was an opposition; even the forbidden fruit in opposition to the tree of life; the one being sweet and the other bitter. “2 Ne. 2: 11, 15
God also governs by laws.
“The glory of God is intelligence, or, in other words, light and truth.
Light and truth forsake that evil one.” D&C 93: 36-37
The Lord speaks through His Prophets.
“The prophet which prophesieth of peace, when the word of the prophet shall come to pass, then shall the prophet be known, that the Lord hath truly sent him.” Jer. 28: 9
“To open their eyes, and to turn them from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan unto God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins, and inheritance among them which are sanctified by faith that is in me.” Acts 26: 18
“For the word of the Lord is truth, and whatsoever is truth is light, and whatsoever is light is Spirit, even the Spirit of Jesus Christ.” D&C 84: 45
“And the mists of darkness are the temptations of the devil, which blindeth the eyes, and hardeneth the hearts of the children of men, and leadeth them away into broad roads, that they perish and are lost.” 1 Ne. 12: 17
“Which dark and blackening deeds are enough to make hell itself shudder, and to stand aghast and pale, and the hands of the very devil to tremble and palsy.” D&C 123: 10
Jesus himself came to the earth.
“Then Jesus said unto them, Yet a little while is the light with you. Walk while ye have the light, lest darkness come upon you: for he that walketh in darkness knoweth not whither he goeth.
36 While ye have light, believe in the light, that ye may be the children of light. These things spake Jesus, and departed, and did hide himself from them.” John 12: 35-36
“Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.” John 8: 12
“And he beheld Satan; and he had a great chain in his hand, and it veiled the whole face of the earth with darkness; and he looked up and laughed, and his angels rejoiced.”
“For God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, hath shined in our hearts, to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.” 2 Cor. 4: 6
“And the children of men were numerous upon all the face of the land. And in those days Satan had great dominion among men, and raged in their hearts; and from thenceforth came wars and bloodshed; and a man’s hand was against his own brother, in administering death, because of secret works, seeking for power.” Moses 6: 15
“But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin.” Jn. 1: 7
“And our spirits must have become like unto him, and we become devils, angels to a devil, to be shut out from the presence of our God, and to remain with the father of lies, in misery, like unto himself; yea, to that being who beguiled our first parents, who transformeth himself nigh unto an angel of light, and stirreth up the children of men unto secret combinations of murder and all manner of secret works of darkness.” 2 Ne. 9: 9
“And they were kept up by the power of the devil to administer these oaths unto the people, to keep them in darkness, to help such as sought power to gain power, and to murder, and to plunder, and to lie, and to commit all manner of wickedness and whoredoms.” Ether 8: 16
“And then shall it come to pass, that the spirits of the wicked, yea, who are evil—for behold, they have no part nor portion of the Spirit of the Lord; for behold, they chose evil works rather than good; therefore the spirit of the devil did enter into them, and take possession of their house—and these shall be cast out into outer darkness; there shall be weeping, and wailing, and gnashing of teeth, and this because of their own iniquity, being led captive by the will of the devil.” Alma 40: 13
Satan, known as Lucifer or the devil, tries to tempt us and is the father of all lies, secret oaths and secret combinations.
“And it came to pass that the wicked part of the people began again to build up the secret oaths and combinations of Gadianton.
“And when these things have passed away a speedy destruction cometh unto my people; for, notwithstanding the pains of my soul, I have seen it; wherefore, I know that it shall come to pass; and they sell themselves for naught; for, for the reward of their pride and their foolishness they shall reap destruction; for because they yield unto the devil andchoose works of darkness rather than light, therefore they must go down to hell.
And there are also secret combinations, even as in times of old, according to the combinations of the
devil, for he is the founder of all these things; yea, the founder of murder, and works of darkness; yea, and he leadeth them by the neck with a flaxen cord, until he bindeth them with his strong cords forever.” 2 Ne. 26: 10, 22
Our world today is filled with wickedness and darkness.
These secret oaths and secret combinations are among those that lead the various nations of the world today and it is all about money, riches and power. This was Satan’s problem!
Have we not seen and wondered why certain things have taken place that didn’t seem likely? Why leaders of nations have secret meetings and go against policies and laws for which they stand? Why we support nations that want to destroy us and give secret trade secrets to our enemies?
It is most likely that these secret oaths, which have been here since the days of Cain, with under the table negotiations and secret combinations or promises with one another to fulfill secret goals and ambitions like a New World Order. Satan’ Dream!
May we all realize these things. May we pray as in times of old for our God above to reveal these lies and wickeness and restore us to peace on earth. Just as our forefathers prayed,
“O Lord God Almighty, maker of heaven, earth, and seas, and of all things that in them are, and who controllest and subjectest the devil, and the dark and benighted dominion of Sheol—stretch forth thy hand; let thine eye pierce; let thy pavilion be taken up; let thy hiding place no longer be covered; let thine ear be inclined; let thine heart be softened, and thy bowels moved with compassion toward us.
” D&C 121: 4
We are living in the Last Days upon this earth. May we pray for light and be found and not be found in darkness, but to come forth seeking those truths of righteousness that light bringeth to all.
May we listen to these recorded words from our Prophets and let go of sins of evil and repent of those works of darkness. For this purpose, our Lord Jesus Christ came to this world and died for our sins and if we would come unto Him and repent, He will help pay the price for our sins if we but follow Him.
“And he said to them all, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself,
and take up his cross daily, and follow me.”
Luke 9: 23
