Ready for Righteousness

It might be tiring to be reminded again and again the wonderful resource of God that we have in the Book of Mormon!  There is more to learn from it.

Ether 2:7-8
7 And the Lord would not suffer that they should stop beyond the sea in the wilderness, but he would that they should come forth even unto the land of promise, which was choice above all other lands, which the Lord God had preserved for a righteous people.

8 And he had sworn in his wrath unto the brother of Jared, that whoso should possess this land of promise, from that time henceforth and forever, should serve him, the true and only God, or they should be swept off when the fulness of his wrath should come upon them

The American hemisphere is a "land of promise" to the righteous followers of Jesus Christ. In an associated way, the unrighteous who live in this land will be "swept off" then Christ comes again. 

I don't think anyone should move across the sea in response to these verses. Rather, make the changes needed in your life and become righteous and ready for the blessings of living on Christ's "land of promise"!
