So Shall It Be

"And he said: Thus saith the Lord God - Cursed shall be the land, yea, this land, unto every nation, kindred, tongue, and people, unto destruction, which do wickedly, when they are fully ripe; and as I have said so shall it be; for this is the cursing and the blessing of God upon the land, for the Lord cannot look upon sin with the least degree of allowance" (Alma 45:16).

Nephi, quoting Isaiah, prophesied saying:

"And then, O house of Israel, behold, these shall come from far; and lo, these from the north and from the west; and these from the land of Sinim.

"Sing, O heavens; and be joyful, O earth; for the feet of those who are in the east shall be established; and break forth into singing, O mountains; for they shall be smitten no more; for the Lord hath comforted his people, and will have mercy upon his afflicted.

"But, behold, Zion hath said: The Lord hath forsaken me, and my Lord hath forgotten me - but he will show that he hath not.

"For can a woman forget her sucking child, that she should not have compassion on the son of her womb?  Yea, they may forget, yet will I not forget thee, O house of Israel.

"Behold, I have graven thee upon the palms of my hands; thy walls are continually before me.

"Thy children shall make haste against thy destroyers; and they that made thee waste shall go forth of thee" (1 Ne. 21:12-17).

The Lord will make an end of all nations (D&C 87:5-6).  Destruction will come upon this land from the east.  It's inhabitants shall be smitten, driven, and taken captive.  It's as though none shall escape it.  Men's hearts shall fail them (D&C 45:26).  Men will curse God and die (D&C 45:32).  The Gentiles will then be trodden under foot by a remnant of the house of Israel (3 Ne 16:13-15).  Then Isaiah's words shall be fulfilled, and the Lord shall bring again Zion (3 Ne. 16:17-20).

The Lord will soon make bare his holy arm in the eyes of all the nations; and as I have said so shall it be.
