I am positive that I was in Helaman Ch. 11 - though I cannot find the words that I was reading last night. I read the first verse which said to repent. The next thing I read was that there would be a great famine in the land, and pestilence because the people have not heard the voice of the Lord. And that the wicked would seek the life of the Prophet. The great calamity would come upon them due to their wickedness. I was told that we are at Helaman 10 in the parallel destructive path we are on as a people.
I am not sure if it was due to having this scripture on my mind, but I had a very powerful dream wherein a guide that I did not recognize told me that this famine was imminent and would occur over the next four years. I was then told to record this by the guide. I was then woken up in the night so I could remember this. I fell back asleep and remembered it in the morning - other than any details of who the guide was that was showing me these things. I am finally recording it to be obedient.
Here is the wording from Helaman 11 that I thought I had read - but was different slightly than what I had seen in the Celestial Room. I am still scratching my head as to what I had seen. Maybe the white-bound scriptures have different wording than mine.....
And it was this secret band of robbers who did carry on this work of destruction and wickedness. And this war did last all that year; and in the seventy and third year it did also last.
And it came to pass that in this year Nephi did cry unto the Lord, saying:
O Lord, do not suffer that this people shall be destroyed by the sword; but O Lord, rather let there be a famine in the land, to stir them up in remembrance of the Lord their God, and perhaps they will repent and turn unto thee.
And so it was done, according to the words of Nephi. And there was a great famine upon the land, among all the people of Nephi. And thus in the seventy and fourth year the famine did continue, and the work of destruction did cease by the sword but became sore by famine.
And this work of destruction did also continue in the seventy and fifth year. For the earth was smitten that it was dry, and did not yield forth grain in the season of grain; and the whole earth was smitten, even among the Lamanites as well as among the Nephites, so that they were smitten that they did perish by thousands in the more wicked parts of the land.
And it came to pass that the people saw that they were about to perish by famine, and they began to remember the Lord their God; and they began to remember the words of Nephi.
And the people began to plead with their chief judges and their leaders, that they would say unto Nephi: Behold, we know that thou art a man of God, and therefore cry unto the Lord our God that he turn away from us this famine, lest all the words which thou hast spoken concerning our destruction be fulfilled.
And it came to pass that the judges did say unto Nephi, according to the words which had been desired. And it came to pass that when Nephi saw that the people had repented and did humble themselves in sackcloth, he cried again unto the Lord, saying:
O Lord, behold this people repenteth; and they have swept away the band of Gadianton from amongst them insomuch that they have become extinct, and they have concealed their secret plans in the earth.
Now, O Lord, because of this their humility wilt thou turn away thine anger, and let thine anger be appeased in the destruction of those wicked men whom thou hast already destroyed.
O Lord, wilt thou turn away thine anger, yea, thy fierce anger, and cause that this famine may cease in this land.
O Lord, wilt thou hearken unto me, and cause that it may be done according to my words, and send forth rainupon the face of the earth, that she may bring forth her fruit, and her grain in the season of grain.
O Lord, thou didst hearken unto my words when I said, Let there be a famine, that the pestilence of the sword might cease; and I know that thou wilt, even at this time, hearken unto my words, for thou saidst that: If this people repent I will spare them.
Yea, O Lord, and thou seest that they have repented, because of the famine and the pestilence and destruction which has come unto them.
And now, O Lord, wilt thou turn away thine anger, and try again if they will serve thee? And if so, O Lord, thou canst bless them according to thy words which thou hast said.
And it came to pass that in the seventy and sixth year the Lord did turn away his anger from the people, and caused that rain should fall upon the earth, insomuch that it did bring forth her fruit in the season of her fruit. And it came to pass that it did bring forth her grain in the season of her grain.
And behold, the people did rejoice and glorify God, and the whole face of the land was filled with rejoicing; And now it came to pass in the seventy and second year of the reign of the judges that the contentions did increase, insomuch that there were wars throughout all the land among all the people of Nephi.and they did no more seek to destroy Nephi, but they did esteem him as a great prophet, and a man of God, having great power and authority given unto him from God.
Look for miracles in the coming years. It has been spoken - and it will come about. A telestial and sign-seeking people will get them - but only to their condemnation as part of the separating of the sheep and the goats.
