______ sent this out to his family, thought you would enjoy it as well….
“Will this land be a land of milk and honey? Yes. Missouri is cracked up to be the greatest honey country that there is on the earth; but it will not be many years before they cannot raise a spoonful in that land, nor in Illinois, nor in any other land where they fight against God. Mildew shall come upon their honey, their bees, and their crops; and famine and desolation shall come upon the nation like a whirlwind.”
Journal of Discourses - Heber C. Kimball, July 26, 1857 (Remarks by President Heber C. Kimball, made in the Bowery - Kindle Locations 45777-45786)
Food (honey) for thought.
Heber C. was an amazing Prophet in his day. He always managed to nail it - sounds like the seeming impossible has happened again. I think it is even a fungus (mildew) which has taken out the bees..... Uncanny.
It will also be further fulfilled when that area is wiped clean just as Spencer spoke of.
