The Spirit Withdraws from the Nephites but Is “Pour[ed] out . . . upon the Lamanites.”

Helaman 6:35–36

35 And thus we see that the Spirit of the Lord began to withdraw from the Nephites, because of the wickedness and the hardness of their hearts.
36 And thus we see that the Lord began to pour out his Spirit upon the Lamanites, because of their easiness and willingness to believe in his words.

President Joseph Fielding Smith said:

“Now because of the wickedness of the world, that Spirit [of Christ] has been withdrawn, and when the Spirit of the Lord is not striving with men, the spirit of Satan is.”

(“Predicted Judgments,” BYU Speeches of the Year, Mar. 21, 1967, 5–6.)
