Our Native Americans Welcomed Columbus To
This Promised Land
“We were already here in America when Columbus Came!”
-Some of the first Americans came from the North called the Jaradites, a group of people survived the days of the Tower of Babel when the languages were confounded. (Destroyed because of Secret Combinations)
-Another group was the Families of Lehi and Ishmael called the Nephites and Lamanites that left Jerusalem when the Lord told them that the city was going to be destroyed. The Lord instructed them in how to build a ship. (They were later Destroyed because of Secret Combinations)
“And when my brethren saw that I was about to build a ship, they began to murmur against me, saying: Our brother is a fool, for he thinketh that he can build a ship; yea, and he also thinketh that he can cross these great waters.
And thus my brethren did complain against me, and were desirous that they might not labor, for they did not believe that I could build a ship; neither would they believe that I was instructed of the Lord.
And it came to pass that I, Nephi, said unto them that they should murmur no more against their father; neither should they withhold their labor from me, for God had commanded me that I should build a ship. 1 Ne. 17: 17-18, 49, 51
Now I, Nephi, did not work the timbers after the manner which was learned by men, neither did I build the ship after the manner of men; but I did build it after the manner which the Lord had shown unto me; wherefore, it was not after the manner of men. 1 Nephi 18: 2
And now, if the Lord has such great power, and has wrought so many miracles among the children of men, how is it that he cannot instruct me, that I should build a ship?
-The Lord led them to the promised land.
-They kept a written record.
“But, said he, notwithstanding our afflictions, we have obtained a land of promise, a land which is choice above all other lands; a land which the Lord God hath covenanted with me should be a land for the inheritance of my seed. Yea, the Lord hath covenanted this land unto me, and to my children forever, and also all those who should be led out of other countries by the hand of the Lord.
Wherefore, I, Lehi, prophesy according to the workings of the Spirit which is in me, that there shall none come into this land save they shall be brought by the hand of the Lord.
Wherefore, this land is consecrated unto him whom he shall bring. And if it so be that they shall serve him according to the commandments which he hath given, it shall be a land of liberty unto them; wherefore, they shall never be brought down into captivity; if so, it shall be because of iniquity; for if iniquity shall abound cursed shall be the land for their sakes, but unto the righteous it shall be blessed forever.
And behold, it is wisdom that this land should be kept as yet from the knowledge of other nations; for behold, many nations would overrun the land, that there would be no place for an inheritance.
Wherefore, I, Lehi, have obtained a promise, that inasmuch as those whom the Lord God shall bring out of the land of Jerusalem shall keep his commandments, they shall prosper upon the face of this land; and they shall be kept from all other nations, that they may possess this land unto themselves. And if it so be that they shall keep his commandments they shall be blessed upon the face of this land, and there shall be none to molest them, nor to take away the land of their inheritance; and they shall dwell safely forever.” 2 Nephi 1: 5-9
-Jesus was Crucified in the Old World. He was resurrected and visited the people in America, the land of Joseph, and to “other sheep” in various places of the world.
-Today, this ‘Promised Land’ of America is made up of many nationalities of people who migrated here looking for peace and freedom. Many came by the inspiration and hand of God.
-Satan has great power over the people.
-The people again forget their God. (Yet to be Destroyed by Secret Combinations – unless we learn from history!)
-The Lamanites (Native Americans) shall blossom as a rose.
-The earth was baptized with water in the days of Noah. It will then be baptized with fire, or The Holy Ghost.
-The Righteous will be spared and live the United order.
-The people are cleansed and build The New Jerusalem.
-Jesus Christ shall return to America once again wearing red apparel and live with us in peace for a thousand years in the New Jerusalem.
These are some important moments of history and prophesies for the future and is why one should read The Book of Mormon, an ancient record recorded on gold plates by our Native Americans. They were translated by Joseph Smith and published in 1830 as The Book of Mormon for the Lords Church which was to be called, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
Moments of a great and dreadful day,
