Christ’s Visitation to the Americas (3 Nephi 10:9-10; 11:10)

After years of strife and political upheaval; after the complete destruction of the government and society; after thunder, lightning, earthquakes, and tsunamis; after three days of darkness; after death, destruction, and misery, the darkness disperses, the earth stops trembling, and Everything settles down.

We read:

“And it came to pass that thus did the three days pass away. And it was in the morning, and the darkness dispersed from off the face of the land, and the earth did cease to tremble, and the rocks did cease to rend, and the dreadful groanings did cease, and all the tumultuous noises did pass away.

And the earth did cleave together again, that it stood; and the mourning, and the weeping, and the wailing of the people who were spared alive did cease; and their mourning was turned into joy, and their lamentations into the praise and thanksgiving unto the Lord Jesus Christ, their Redeemer.” – 3 Nephi 10:9-10

The mourning, the weeping, and the wailing of the survivors had stopped. They had heard the voice of the Lord. The darkness dispersed. They had been delivered from immediate destruction. Their lamentation turned into joy.

And then, Christ came.

“Behold, I am Jesus Christ, whom the prophets testified shall come into the world.” – 3 Nephi 11:10

The people were delivered both immediately and eternally. Christ had saved the entire world. The prophecies had been fulfilled.

And the result?

Joy
