Jeffery R. Holland - The Last Days




Yet I will own them, and they shall be mine in 
that day when I shall come to make up my jewels.
Therefore, they must needs be chastened and tried, 
even as Abraham, who was commanded to offer up his only son. 
For all those who will not endure chastening, 
but deny me, cannot be sanctified
.” D&C 101:3-5
We have been warned that the judgments of God will begin upon His own house. 

“I, the Lord, have suffered the affliction to come upon them, wherewith they have been afflicted, in consequence of their transgressions;
“Therefore, they must needs be chastened and tried, even as Abraham, who was commanded to offer up his only son.
“For all those who will not endure chastening, but deny me, cannot be sanctified. 
“Behold, I say unto you, there were jarrings, and contentions, and envyings, and strifes, and lustful and covetous desires among them; therefore by these things they polluted their inheritances.
“They were slow to hearken unto the voice of the Lord their God; therefore, the Lord their God is slow to hearken unto their prayers, to answer them in the day of their trouble.
“In the day of their peace they esteemed lightly my counsel; but, in the day of their trouble, of necessity they feel after me.” 

D&C 101: 2-8

" …the day of sacrifice is not past. The time will come yet when many saints and even apostles will yet lose their lives in defense of the truth...We think we are secure from mobs and persecutors…the time is coming when we will be mixed up so much it will be hard to tell a face of a saint from the face of an enemy of God. Look out for the great Sieve. A great sifting time is coming and many will fall, for I say unto you—there is a test, there is a test, there is a test coming and who will be able to stand? ... Many of you will see the time when you will have all the trial and trouble you can handle and plenty of you will have all the trial and trouble you can handle and plenty of opportunity to show that you are true to God and his Work.” 
Harold B. Lee (Faith, BYU Devotional, 1955)
“The ax is laid at the root of the trees; and every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit shall be hewn down and cast into the fire. I, the Lord, have spoken it.
“Verily I say unto you, all among them who know their hearts are honest, and are broken, and their spirits contrite, and are willing to observe their covenants by sacrifice—yea, every sacrifice which I, the Lord, shall command—they are accepted of me.
“For I, the Lord, will cause them to bring forth as a very fruitful tree which is planted in a goodly land, by a pure stream, that yieldeth much precious fruit.“
D&C 97:7-9
