Now, my dear brothers and sisters, I bless you to be filled with the peace of the Lord Jesus Christ. His peace is beyond all mortal understanding. I bless you with an increased desire and ability to obey the laws of God. I promise that as you do, you will be showered with blessings, including greater courage, increased personal revelation, sweeter harmony in your homes, and joy even amid uncertainty.
President Russell M. Nelson, "A New Normal", General Conference, October 2020
We are living in uncertainty. We don't know if this is the worst or if it will get even more scary and uncertain. My thinking is that it will still get much worse before the Lord reigns personally.
We only need to focus on getting ourselves, our families and loved ones, and our friends along the covenant path. We need to focus on living the commandments and being as Christlike as possible. Easier said than done, I know. There is soooo much trying to stop us from doing that.
So, my feeling is that the sifting of the wheat and tares is happening now in full force and will continue to go on until He comes in power and glory. And, if we don't get 100% serious on where our focus should be, we will be sifted as weeds. And, to stay with the wheat will only get harder to do. I have a feeling that this election is the beginning of the acceleration downwards into chaos, confusion, and decay.
But we have a promise from a prophet of God. Yea, even a promise from God Himself, that as we increase our desire and ability to follow Christ, then we will receive blessings untold, courage not fear, the revelation we need for ourselves and families, even joy. And we'll receive all of this despite what is happening around us. So as society decays around us, we will increase in faith, charity, humility, happiness, and peace. I know this to be true.
So, we have nothing to be scared of. If we do our part, He will do His. Remember, if we could just see, we will see that them that be with us is far greater than all of the adversary, either spirits or living embodiments of evil. We will be okay.
