Information about the audio download Prophecies of “the Great & Abominable Church”
This unique talk, Prophecies of “the Great & Abominable Church,” connects numerous detailed prophetic references from 1st and 2nd Nephi and the Doctrine and Covenants with known events in the history of Christianity and with perilous events which are yet future.
In his great panoramic view of 71 events that were to take place, Nephi was told by an angel to “behold the formation of a church which is most abominable above all other churches, which slayeth the saints of God.” (1 Ne. 13) The angel told Nephi that the devil would be the church’s founder. The church, which was to be formed among the Gentile [European] nations, was identified by having much gold and silver, precious clothing, harlots, seeking the praise of the world, and torturing and yoking Christians into captivity.
Nephi also foresaw that in some time yet future, there will be some event that will cause men to either align themselves with the Church of God or the church of the Devil. (1 Ne. 14) In that future era, members of the great and abominable church, after fighting among themselves, will fight against Zion.
Various scriptural passages are cited that warn that a time will come when the church of the Devil will fight against the Saints. Its efforts to fight against the saints will disintegrate into world war—an international war in which the Gentile nations do battle with one another and finally destroy the capital city of the great and abominable church. John, in his book of Revelation (chapter 17), describes that capitol city as sitting on seven hills, but close enough to a seacoast that people on ships can see the smoke of its burning.
Prophecies of the Great & Abominable Church describes future cataclysmic events with warnings to watch the signs of the times, prepare and be ready.
