Nate is back to dive into D&C 124 with Jason this week! This episode begins with Jason describing the summer of 1839 in Nauvoo. The saints soon drained the swamp and turned Nauvoo into a beautiful city. This episode talks about the revelation to make a proclamation to all of the rulers in the world that the Kingdom of God has been restored and to invite them to participate in the gathering of Israel. This section also introduces us to John C. Bennet, who could have been a great tool but could not follow counsel and mend his ways. Instead, Bennet became a great hindrance to the progress of the Church. In this episode, Jason and Nate also talk about the boarding house and the new ordinance of baptism for the dead. Finally the Lord reveals in this section that his wrath and punishments are often not malicious acts on his part. Instead, they are natural consequences from our poor choices or inaction in a world that needs us.
