She packed her bag with worldly care,
She packed her place and journeyed there.
She chose each day the lesser part,
From God and light she did depart.
up lots of empty fun,
Refusing to follow God's holy Son.
She put in pride and a store of lies,
She grabbed her bag and ignored the skies.
Not seeing she found herself bound,
Then she heard this glorious sound.
I have trodden the
wine press for my fold,
I keep with me the purest gold.
Come forth in joy my faithful and true,
My blood has cleansed and purchased you.
In her prison with misery she saw,
The truth of God and every law.
Rebellious and defiant
she faced her choice,
She had hearkened to the evil voice.
Her bag reflected the enemies way,
Justice demanded she suffer and stay.
No light or beauty, for she now knew,
That peace is found by being true.
Written by Michelene
"Could ye say, if ye were called to die at this time, within yourselves, that ye have been sufficiently humble?
That your garments have been cleansed and made white through the blood of Christ, who will come to redeem his people from their sins? Behold, are ye stripped of pride? I say unto you, if ye are not ye are not prepared to meet God. Behold ye must prepare quickly;
for the kingdom of heaven is soon at hand, and such an one hath not eternal life. Behold, I say, is there one among you who is not stripped of envy? I say unto you that such an one is not prepared; and I would that he should prepare quickly, for the hour is
close at hand, and he knoweth not when the time shall come; for such an one is not found guiltless.And again I say unto you, is there one among you that doth make a mock of his brother, or that heapeth upon him persecutions? Wo unto such an one, for he is
not prepared, and the time is at hand that he must repent or he cannot be saved! Yea, even wo unto all ye workers of iniquity; repent, repent, for the Lord God hath spoken it!" Alma 5:27-32
it shall come to pass, because of the wickedness of the world, that I will take vengeance upon the wicked, for they will not repent; for the cup of mine indignation
is full; for behold, my blood shall not cleanse them if they hear me not." D&C 29:17
