“Then… the Work of the Father Shall Commence”

Joseph F. McConkie, Robert L. Millet
The work of the Father“-the work of gathering Israel (see 3 Nephi 21:1-8), the missionary thrust of the Latter-day Saints-shall go forward with accelerated force when the Lord has displaced the devil and cleansed the earth of the violence and wickedness on its surface. All Israel, the ten tribes included, shall then be gathered in great numbers (see 2 Nephi 30:7-15; 3 Nephi 21:24-28).”
