Omni 1:6-7

Recommended Posts

Omni 1Â*

6 For the Lord would not suffer, after he had led them out of the land of Jerusalem and kept and preserved them from falling into the hands of their enemies, yea, he would not suffer that the words should not be verified, which he spake unto our fathers, saying that: Inasmuch as ye will not keep my commandments ye shall not prosper in the land.

7 Wherefore, the Lord did visit them in great judgment; nevertheless, he did spare the righteous that they should not perish, but did deliver them out of the hands of their enemies.

Quotes for Discussion

The priesthood of God who honor their priesthood, and who are worthy of their blessings are the only ones who shall have this safety….No other people have a right to be shielded from these judgments….Not even this people will escape them entirely.

Wilford Woodruff, in Collected Discourses, 4:229-30

We do not say that all of the Saints will be spared and saved from the coming day of desolation. But we do say there is no promise of safety and no promise of security except for those who love the Lord and who are seeking to do all that he commands.

Bruce R. McConkie, Ensign, May 1979, 93

I explained concerning the coming of the Son of Man; also that it is a false idea that the Saints will escape all the judgments, whilst the wicked suffer; for all flesh is subject to suffer, and “the righteous shall hardly escape;” still many of the Saints will escape.

Joseph Smith, Teachings, 162
