The Lord Warns and Forewarns
"In mercy the Lord warns and forewarns. He sees the coming storm, knows the forces operating to produce it, and calls aloud through his prophets, advises, counsels, exhorts, aye, even commands-that we prepare for what is about to befall and take shelter while yet there is time.
But we go our several ways, feasting and making merry, consoling conscience with the easy fancy of "time enough" and in idle hope that the tempest will pass us by, or that, when it begins to gather thick and black about us we can turn back and find shelter."
James E. Talmage, The Parables of James E. Talmage, p. 50
"Then whosoever heareth the sound of the trumpet, and taketh not warning; if the sword come, and take him away, his blood shall be upon his own head.
