A very distinct feeling came over me the morning Roe v. Wade was overturned—like a condemnation that rested on the United States as a whole had been lifted. This lifted curse allows for two things to happen: 1) those who insist on supporting abortion will create more centralized spaces where this can happen; the most extreme will even be inclined to move to states where the culture reflects their inner-spirit, and 2) those desiring to repent and move closer to God will have greater mobility and power to do so. In essence, it will be a catalyst for the ripening of both wheat and tare.
As a result of this lifted curse, the Lord will pour out His Spirit in greater measure. Truth will increase—to the benefit of the righteous and detriment of the wicked. As the spiritual temperature of the earth increases by a few degrees, those choosing to rise with it will be sanctified and renewed by this greater outpouring (which will eventually culminate in the Joel 2:28 prophecy, but not yet).
As light breaks forth, it exposes what was before unseen. Not only does this mean that new truths are had pertaining to the building up of Zion, but wickedness and corruption are exposed at a greater level as well. It is as though we’re living in a dark room, and the light is gradually increasing. Things that were before obscure are seen in greater clarity. Works of darkness come to light.
Following the overturn of Roe v. Wade, we will begin to see a greater outpouring of light, and consequently evil exposed to a greater degree.
As this understanding distilled on my soul, the Lord took me through a chain of scriptures that outline this prophetic pattern.
“Every man’s work shall be made manifest: for the day shall declare it, because it shall be revealed by fire; and the fire shall try every man’s work of what sort it is” (1 Corinthians 3:13).
“Wherefore, the things of all nations shall be made known; yea, all things shall be made known unto the children of men. There is nothing which is secret save it shall be revealed; there is no work of darkness save it shall be made manifest in the light; and there is nothing which is sealed upon the earth save it shall be loosed. Wherefore, all things which have been revealed unto the children of men shall at that day be revealed; and Satan shall have power over the hearts of the children of men no more, for a long time. And now, my beloved brethren, I make an end of my sayings” (2 Nephi 30:16-18; cf. Luke 8:17-18).
“But the words which are sealed he shall not deliver, neither shall he deliver the book. For the book shall be sealed by the power of God, and the revelation which was sealed shall be kept in the book until the own due time of the Lord, that they may come forth; for behold, they reveal all things from the foundation of the world unto the end thereof. And the day cometh that the words of the book which were sealed shall be read upon the house tops; and they shall be read by the power of Christ; and all things shall be revealed unto the children of men which ever have been among the children of men, and which ever will be even unto the end of the earth…
“And wo unto them that seek deep to hide their counsel from the Lord! And their works are in the dark; and they say: Who seeth us, and who knoweth us? And they also say: Surely, your turning of things upside down shall be esteemed as the potter’s clay. But behold, I will show unto them, saith the Lord of Hosts, that I know all their works. For shall the work say of him that made it, he made me not? Or shall the thing framed say of him that framed it, he had no understanding?” (2 Nephi 27:10-11, 27; cf. D&C 1:1-3; Luke 12:1-3).
“And now, I will speak unto you concerning those twenty-four plates, that ye keep them, that the mysteries and the works of darkness, and their secret works, or the secret works of those people who have been destroyed, may be made manifest unto this people; yea, all their murders, and robbings, and their plunderings, and all their wickedness and abominations, may be made manifest unto this people; yea, and that ye preserve these interpreters. For behold, the Lord saw that his people began to work in darkness, yea, work secret murders and abominations; therefore the Lord said, if they did not repent they should be destroyed from off the face of the earth.
“And the Lord said: I will prepare unto my servant Gazelem, a stone, which shall shine forth in darkness unto light, that I may discover unto my people who serve me, that I may discover unto them the works of their brethren, yea, their secret works, their works of darkness, and their wickedness and abominations.
“And now, my son, these interpreters were prepared that the word of God might be fulfilled, which he spake, saying: I will bring forth out of darkness unto light all their secret works and their abominations; and except they repent I will destroy them from off the face of the earth; and I will bring to light all their secrets and abominations, unto every nation that shall hereafter possess the land” (Alma 37:21-25).
“You have supposed, by taking refuge in deception
and hiding behind falsehoods,
to have covenanted with Death,
or reached an understanding with Sheol, that,
should a flooding scourge sweep through the earth,
it shall not reach you.
Therefore, thus says my Lord Jehovah:
I lay in Zion a stone, a keystone,
a precious cornerstone, a sure foundation.
They who believe it will not do rashly” (Isaiah 28:15-16, Gileadi Translation).
As I meditated on these scriptures, another revelation opened up to me, and I was left with the understanding that the coming forth of the sealed portion (which will reveal the works of darkness among us) is the ultimate fulfillment of this pattern, and will mark the end of this phase. Between now and that crescendo, this pattern will swell in increasing intensity.
The fulfillment of these scriptures is upon us; first spiritually, and then literally. I so testify in the name of the Lord, according to the Spirit which is in me.
“And upon my house shall it begin, and from my house shall it go forth, saith the Lord; First among those among you, saith the Lord, who have professed to know my name and have not known me, and have blasphemed against me in the midst of my house, saith the Lord” (D&C 112:25-26).
“For nothing is secret, that shall not be made manifest; neither any thing hid, that shall not be known and come abroad. Take heed therefore how ye hear: for whosoever hath, to him shall be given; and whosoever hath not, from him shall be taken even that which he seemeth to have” (Luke 8:17-18).
