Moroni’s Ominous Warning

I was reading the words of Moroni, his last warning to us in these last days regarding what will surely come. It is a sobering reminder of the precarious position many of us are in.

Mormon 8:26-41

And no one need say they shall not come, [The records unto the remnant of the House of Israel in this land.] for they surely shall, for the Lord hath spoken it; for out of the earth shall they come, [Book of Mormon] by the hand of the Lord, and none can stay it; and it shall come in a day when it shall be said that miracles are done away; and it shall come even as if one should speak from the dead. [Our time]

And it shall come in a day when the blood of saints shall cry unto the Lord, [Blood of Joseph, Hyrum, Samuel, and others] because of secret combinations and the works of darkness. Yea, it shall come in a day when the power of God shall be denied, [Gifts of the Spirit are denied] and churches become defiled and be lifted up in the pride of their hearts; yea, even in a day when leaders of churches and teachers shall rise in the pride of their hearts, even to the envying of them who belong to their churches. [Authorities who degrade fellow believers for their own envy and pride.]

Yea, it shall come in a day when there shall be heard of fires, and tempests, and vapors of smoke in foreign lands; [Our day] And there shall also be heard of wars, rumors of wars, and earthquakes in divers places.

Yea, it shall come in a day when there shall be great pollutions upon the face of the earth; [Both physical and spiritual.] there shall be murders, and robbing, and lying, and deceivings, and whoredoms, and all manner of abominations; when there shall be many who will say, Do this, or do that, and it mattereth not, for the Lord will uphold such at the last day. [Even among those who call themselves followers of Christ.] But wo unto such, for they are in the gall of bitterness and in the bonds of iniquity.

Yea, it shall come in a day when there shall be churches built up that shall say: Come unto me, and for your money you shall be forgiven of your sins. [Pay your money to us and you shall be saved, worthy to enter the House of the Lord.]

O ye wicked and perverse and stiffnecked people, [Those who refuse to see.] why have ye built up churches unto yourselves to get gain? [Build structures with the purpose of building wealth.] Why have ye transfigured the holy word of God, [Changed the meaning of scripture.] that ye might bring damnation upon your souls? Behold, look ye unto the revelations of God; for behold, the time cometh at that day when all these things must be fulfilled. [Book of Revelation, Isaiah, Daniel, Amos, Joel, Ezekiel, Zacheriah]

Behold, the Lord hath shown unto me great and marvelous things concerning that which must shortly come, at that day when these things shall come forth among you.

Behold, I speak unto you as if ye were present, and yet ye are not. But behold, Jesus Christ hath shown you unto me, and I know your doing. [The power of a Seer.]

And I know that ye do walk in the pride of your hearts; and there are none save a few only who do not lift themselves up in the pride of their hearts, [Only a small percentage are not guilty.] unto the wearing of very fine apparel, unto envying, and strifes, and malice, and persecutions, [fighting and condemning amongst the believers of God.] and all manner of iniquities; and your churches, yea, even every one, [None exempt.] have become polluted because of the pride of your hearts.

For behold, ye do love money, and your substance, and your fine apparel, and the adorning of your churches, more than ye love the poor and the needy, the sick and the afflicted. [More focus upon the building of sacred edifices than upon the poor and afflicted.]

O ye pollutions, ye hypocrites, ye teachers, [Scholars and self-proclaimed authorities] who sell yourselves for that which will canker, why have ye polluted the holy church of God? Why are ye ashamed to take upon you the name of Christ? [To receive the Gift of the Holy Ghost]  Why do ye not think that greater is the value of an endless happiness than that misery which never dies—because of the praise of the world? [Because they seek the honor of those in high places.]

Why do ye adorn yourselves with that which hath no life, and yet suffer the hungry, and the needy, and the naked, and the sick and the afflicted to pass by you, and notice them not?

Yea, why do ye build up your secret abominations to get gain, and cause that widows should mourn before the Lord, and also orphans to mourn before the Lord, and also the blood of their fathers and their husbands to cry unto the Lord from the ground, for vengeance upon your heads?

Behold, the sword of vengeance hangeth over you; and the time soon cometh that he avengeth the blood of the saints upon you, for he will not suffer their cries any longer. [Moroni saw the destruction that would befall those who have become corrupted among the Church in the end of times; which is now.]

    Sobering.. and a painful reminder. I have recently realized I had been doing “good” (or appearing to do so) for the wrong reasons. The process of awakening and shedding old patterns and traditions of men has been both difficult and beautiful. Thanks for your help!

    Thank you for sharing this. It is another witness in a Spirit led personal journey for months where much has been exposed and changed in my life long beliefs. A commitment to truth above all else can be a difficult path but also liberating and joyful. A chance to rely on the Lord instead of the “arm of flesh”. Your input and insights have been catalysts in this process. I am very grateful.

    Thanks for the good reminder. Although these verses are useful in interpreting what’s going on around us, it is even more helpful as a tool to examine our own hearts, somewhat like Alma chapter 5.
    On a slightly different perspective, after pondering on some of the things you shared I concluded that there must have been a Master Mahan, or an aspiring one, behind the murders of Joseph and Hyrum. Of course these guys are super-secret and must have managed to cover their tracks. Is this so?

    Can you give any insight for what is ahead for those many members of the church who seek to do good but are blinded by the traditions of their fathers? Will there be a voice in the wilderness? An Abinidi? A Samuel the Lamanite? An Ether? What is the ‘great sieve’?

  8. All I can say is to put all trust in the Lord and not the arm of flesh.

    Master Mahan re: Carthage…indeed. When I thought I had it figured out, I have been thrown on my ear. Now I am working through a new set of unbelief. Thank you for the added insights.

    In order to be called Master Mahan, do you not need to be a Son of Perdition? Does this mean the chief conspirator was a Son of Perdition, or became one through this act? I imagine we all know the name of this man.

  11. Those who partake of the ritual sacrifice to Satan become sons of perdition, which is Master Mahan as it was called. But, to even be capable of making such a covenant they must be a fourth estate being, knowing God from before. There are many such people alive in the world today.

  14. When I read the last of these words, “ the cry’s of the widows and fatherless and the blood of the fathers crying out for vengeance. It reminds me very much of one of the resent Leaders of my church that voiced at a gathering, we should support the President of the USA and go to war.. Having said this there is a scripture that speaks very able of those “of perdition!”

    Hebrews 10:
    38 Now the just shall live by faith: but if any man draw back, my soul shall have no pleasure in him.
    39 But we are not of them who draw back unto perdition; but of them that believe to the saving of the soul.
    And Hebrews 6:
    4 For it is impossible for those who were once enlightened, and have tasted of the heavenly gift, and were made partakers of the Holy Ghost,
    5 And have tasted the good word of God, and the powers of the world to come,
    6 If they shall fall away, to renew them again unto repentance; seeing they crucify to themselves the Son of God afresh, and put him to an open shame.
    These scriptures plus more tell me there are more perdition then we may realize.
