“They Which Belong to It Must Needs Be Stirred Up Unto Repentance”

K. Douglas Bassett
“During this time when nations are in distress, with perplexity, there will actually be some redemptive turbulence: ‘For the kingdom of the devil must shake, and they which belong to it must needs be stirred up unto repentance’ (2 Ne. 28:19). Being so ‘stirred up’ will be a real thing, though we can only speculate as to how it will be achieved.” (Neal A. Maxwell, Ensign, Nov. 1998, p. 62)
