“AWAKE TO A SENSE OF YOUR AWFUL SITUATION”- Book of Mormon prophets saw this day – TODAY

http://

25 Therefore, choose you by the avoice of this people, judges, that ye may be bjudged according to the claws which have been given you by our fathers, which are correct, and which were given them by the hand of the Lord.

 26 Now it is not common that the avoice of the people desireth anything bcontrary to that which is right; but it is common for the lesser part of the cpeople to desire that which is not right; therefore this shall ye observe and make it your law—to do your business by the voice of the people.

 27 And aif the time comes that the voice of the people doth choose iniquity, then is the time that the judgments of God will come upon you; yea, then is the time he will visit you with great destruction even as he has hitherto visited this land. (Mosiah 29)

The Nephites did build (the Gadianton robbers) up and support them, beginning at the more wicked part of them, until they had overspread all the land of the Nephites, and had seduced the more part of the righteous until they had come down to believe in their works and partake of their spoils….

 39 And thus they did obtain the sole management of the government, insomuch that they did trample under their feet and smite and rend and turn their backs upon the apoor and the meek, and the humble followers of God.

 40 And thus we see that they were in an awful state, and aripening for an everlasting destruction. (Hel 6)

24 Wherefore, the Lord commandeth you, when ye shall see these things come among you that ye shall awake to a sense of your awful situation (Ether 8)

Mystery of Fort Mountain

ImageMoon-eyed_people

Quinn, a Nephite Explorer viewer, came across a very interesting place while serving as a missionary in Georgia. I’m gathering research into this ancient fort and from the description it sounds much like the ancient forts found in Ohio which we investigated in “Search for the Nephite Lands” episode. Here’s what Quinn’s research uncovered that we’re working on finding sources for:

“I have the clipping, but I am having a hard time finding the plaque anywhere online.
everyone talks about it and summarizes it, but I think you need to dig deeper to find the plaque that is up there.
it talks of a “moon eyed people”
they were white skinned indians, they were taller than the dark skinned indians, and they were a “warlike people”
They built this wall long ago and then there was a great fight between the dark skinned indians and the light skinned indians, where all the light skinned indians were pushed north. there was a great battle up north where all the white skinned indians were whipped out.

One explanation people have had for these white skinned indians, is that it was prince madoc from wales in 1170 AD who came and built the forts.
Because of the shape of the forts, some believe they are the same shape as some welsh structures.

While I served there I went to the mountain and took photos and loved the idea of the nephites making the structure, and I told a member about my fascination.
The next week, there was a story in the news paper form the University of GA doing a study on the walls.
They dated the walls and they said the idea that these white indians from 1170 was false because they dated it between 200 BC and 600 AD.”

Here’s the description from the park website:

MYSTERY SHROUDS FORT MOUNTAIN
Plaque located at the trail head to the fort walls.
Inscription. The trail to the north of this site leads to the mysterious and prehistoric wall of loose rocks from which Fort Mountain takes its name. Many generations of explorers, archaeologists, geologists, historians and sight-seers have wondered about the identity of the unknown builders and the purpose of their handiwork.

From the brink of a cliff on the east side of the mountain, the wall extends 885 feet to another precipice on the west side. Its highest parts measure about seven feet but generally it rises to a height of two or three feet. There are 29 pits scattered fairly regularly along the wall, with the ruins of a gateway at one point.

Speculation regarding the builders and their purposecovers a wide field. It includes references to sun-worship and last-ditch defense by prehistoric white people, bloody warfare between rival Indian tribes, defense fortifications for Spanish conquistadors hunting gold and a honeymoon haven for Cherokee Indian newlyweds.

Nobody knows which of the many legends and theories is true and which false. The true answer still lies buried somewhere in antiquity and may never be unearthed.

I find it particularly interesting that there are gaps in the walls just like the Ohio forts. The gaps in the Ohio ancient forts are where towers once stood. The large depression they discuss is also likely a large towers. It is also very interesting that the other place a “fertility chair” is found is around the Mediterainian…..hmmm. Who brought that practice to North America? We’ll I know of three groups of people who came here from that place. Jeradites, Mulekites and the Lehites (Nephites and Lamanites) among others. And one of the ledgends is that it was built by a white people for defense.  I’m going to dig deeper and see what I find.
