Lord gave me the following, face to face, November 23, 2016
I then asked the meaning of the scripture, which was given by Nephi to Joseph when he visited him in the old cabin of the Smith Farm. He said, “And he shall plant in the hearts of the children the promises made to the fathers, and the hearts of the children shall return to their fathers, if it were not so, the whole earth would be utterly wasted at his coming.”
The Lord said the “promises” were the everlasting covenant, which the ancient Fathers sought so that they could walk with God and establish Zion. Today, the children, or this young generation has this desire planted in their hearts, to establish Zion before His coming, otherwise the earth would be wasted and without purpose at His glorious coming. I was deeply grateful for this explanation.
