“Prophets in the Land Again”
Ether 7:23; 9:28
23 And also in the reign of Shule there came prophets among the people, who were sent from the Lord, prophesying that the wickedness and idolatry of the people was bringing a curse upon the land, and they should be destroyed if they did not repent. . . .
28 And there came prophets in the land again, crying repentance unto them—that they must prepare the way of the Lord or there should come a curse upon the face of the land; yea, even there should be a great famine, in which they should be destroyed if they did not repent.
Elder Jeffrey R. Holland said:
“I testify of this reaching, rescuing, merciful Jesus, that this is His redeeming Church based on His redeeming love, and that, as those in the Book of Mormon declared, ‘there came prophets among the people, who were sent from the Lord [to speak it]. . . . [Yea,] there came prophets in the land again’ [Ether 7:23; 9:28].”
