Israel believed that God was a saving God, not because some thinker evolved the conception from his fertile mind, but because He had revealed Himself in their history as a saving God. He had chosen Israel, when Israel was weak and in bondage, and He had sent Moses down to Egypt in His name to lead them forth. By a great and wonderful deliverance He had delivered them, and through all their history they could not forget it. That deliverance was regulative for all their thinking of God. They believed that He was the controller of history just because it was in history that He had revealed His character to them. They believed that He was the controller of Nature just because He had used Nature as the instrument of that deliverance. In the subsequent history God shows Himself a saving God repeatedly, and uses both Nature and men in whom is His spirit to effect deliverance.

We are blessed to live in a time when the priesthood keys are on the earth. We are blessed to know where to look and how to listen for the voice that will fulfill the promise of the Lord that He will gather us to safety. I pray that we will have humble hearts, that we will listen, that we will pray, and that we will wait for the deliverance of the Lord that is sure to come as we are faithful.

…for without Zion, and a place of deliverance, we must fall; because the time is near when the sun will be darkened, and the moon turn to blood, and the stars fall from the heaven, and the earth reel to and fro.

Then, if this is the case, and if we are not sanctified and gathered to the places God has appointed, with all our former professions and our great love for the Bible, we must fall; we cannot stand; we cannot be saved; for God will gather out his Saints from the Gentiles, and then comes desolation and destruction, and none can escape except the pure in heart who are gathered.

Today, if you're experiencing some trials, let me give you a few questions that you can ask yourself. If you'll begin to do this, you can prepare now for what will be a lifetime of various kinds of trials. Ask yourself a question: Am I trying to do what the Lord would have me do, if you're not then you need to adjust your course. But, if you are, and you're under trials, would you please always remember a picture? and the picure I'd like to have you remember is of a boy outside the walls of a city, who turned to his brothers and said, I'll go ahead, because I know that God gives no commandments unto the children of men save he prepares a way.

Now I bear you my testimony that there will always be a way for you to escape from the trials that will be given if you understand two things: One is, you need to be on the Lord's errand and secondly, the escape will almost never be out of the trial, it will be through it. If you pray to escape it you may not find the way prepared for you; you need to pray to find the way of deliverance through it.

There is one principle I would like to have the Latter-day Saints perfectly understand--that is, of blessings and cursings. For instance, we read that war, pestilence, plagues, famine, etc., will be visited upon the inhabitants of the earth; but if distress through the judgments of God comes upon this people, it will be because the majority have turned away from the Lord. Let the majority of the people turn away from the Holy Commandments which the Lord has delivered to us, and cease to hold the balance of power in the Church, and we may expect the judgments of God to come upon us; but while six-tenths or three-fourths of this people will keep the commandments of God, the curse and judgments of the Almighty will never come upon them, though we will have trials of various kinds, and the elements to contend with--natural and spiritual elements. While this people will strive to serve God according to the best of their abilities, they will fare better, have more to eat and to wear, have better houses to live in, better associations, and enjoy themselves better than the wicked ever do or ever will do.

We gather the poorest of the people, the unlearned, and a few of the learned; but generally, we gather the poor, who wish to be redeemed; who feel the oppression the high and the proud have made them endure; they have felt a wish to be delivered, and consequently their ears were open to receive the truth. Take those who are in the enjoyment of all the luxuries of life, and their ears are stopped up; they cannot hear.

When you’re experiencing a severe trial, ask yourself this question: ‘Am I trying to do what the Lord would have me do?’ If you’re not, then adjust your course. But if you are, remember the boy outside the walls of Jerusalem who turned to his brothers and said, ‘I will go and do the things the Lord hath commanded, for I know that the Lord giveth no commandments unto the children of men, save he shall prepare a way for them that they may accomplish the thing which he commandeth them.’ (1 Nephi 3:7)
“I bear you my testimony that the Lord will always prepare a way for you to escape from the trials you will be given if you will understand two things. One is that you will need to be on the Lord’s errand. The second thing you need to understand is that the escape will almost never be out of the trial; it will usually be through it. If you pray to have the experience removed altogether, you may not find the way prepared for you. Instead, you need to pray to find the way of deliverance through it. Let me remind you of a beautiful story. One day the prophet Alma encountered a group of people who were going through terrible trials. When he saw how beaten down they were, ‘he beheld with great joy; for he beheld that their afflictions had truly humbled them, and that they were in a preparation to hear the word.’ (Alma 32:6.)
