Elder Jim Crawford shared the following message recently at several small mid-west branches, where he was invited to speak. Jim told me about receiving this late March or early April 2019. His sermon was recorded at Keosauqua, Iowa and the words below were transcribed from this. After Jim sat down Elder Dave Drummond confirmed that this message was from the Lord.
7 April 2019 ~ Keosauqua, Iowa
Thus saith the Lord God Almighty, the Holy One of Israel, the Great I Am, the Only Begotten. I sent my servant Samuel the Lamanite to the Nephites, to share what would happen upon this land when I was born, and when I died upon the cross. And, when I died upon the cross, this land was [a] torrent, the ruff places were made smooth, smooth places were made ruff, there were mountains where there were valleys, and valleys where there were mountains, and cities were sunken into the water.
I sent my servant James this morning to tell you what will happen within the next two years. Because, as when I died upon the cross there was great destruction, there will be great destruction upon this land within the next two years. There will be a volcano rise up in Nevada. The San Andreas fault and the New Madrid fault will cause a great destruction. There will be many mountains where there are valleys. There will be valleys where there are mountains. When our enemies across the seas see what has happen to this land, they will come across, and they will attack, and they will kill men, women and children with no remorse.
I share this with you this morning that my people might know what to do to prepare for this. And what you have just done this morning is part of that preparation (sacrament). For not only do you remember that which I have done, and that which I have said, the covenants that you make, that you repent of the things that are happening in your life; that you can take upon you the name of Jesus Christ; that you serve him and him only, and not Babylon, and not the things that pull you away from doing my will; that you serve me with all your heart, might, mind, and strength. You need to learn to do that now, you need to learn to depend on me. For when the destruction comes there will be less time to do it. I would gather my people in, but only those who are willing to serve. Follow after me. Do my will. Repent of your sins and glorify me in everything you do.
I want to share this also with you, because I know all of you are not members of the church. I feel led by the spirit to say, if you haven’t come to someone in authority and made a covenant in baptism in the communion of laying on of hands to receive the Holy Ghost, you need to search that out and do so. Time is short and the problems will be great. I will protect my people, who are willing to serve me. I will be here.
I know many of you have testimonies of God leading you in directions, and you need to grab hold of those testimonies and you need to remember that God does lead you, and not depend on any man, or any person to direct your ways, but depend only on your Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. For he loves each one here, but he will respond in accordance with how you respond and depend on him. Lift up your hearts to him, be guided and directed in all things. Be willing to do whatever the Lord would have you do. Don’t even question, but trust in faith, doubting nothing. If you want to know any question, remember what is written in James 1.5-7, “If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God who giveth to all men liberally and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him. But let him ask in faith, nothing wavering, for he that wavereth is as a wave of the sea, driven with the wind and tossed. For let not that man think he shall receive anything of the Lord.”
