The Joseph Smith Foundation is pleased to announce that For Our Day: Covenant on the Land has been released on DVD! Available alone, in sharing packs, or bundled with a 20x30 poster timeline of Book of Mormon parallel events.
- Is latter-day history laid out and foreshadowed in the Book of Mormon?
- What if we were to take the most fundamental and key prophetic events of the last days and organize them chronologically, and then lay out the Book of Mormon history on top of it?
- How does this help us better understand the signs of the times in the last days?
- What can this tell us of the challenges that lie ahead, and more importantly, the answers to those challenges?
The For Our Day documentary series explores the prophetic parallels in the Book of Mormon referencing statements from latter-day prophets of God and the Standard Works. For Our Day: Covenant on the Land discusses the covenant on the Promised Land for both ancient and modern inhabitants.
Disc includes two documentaries:
Part I: A New Approach (41 min)

Part II: Promise (52 min)

In comparing the Book of Mormon with our day, there are many interesting parallels. In each:
DESTRUCTION: The more righteous gather in and the wicked are destroyed to prepare the way for the Coming of the Son of God.
COMING OF CHRIST: The righteous are resurrected. Christ comes to His people, heals the sick, reestablishes His Church and expounds all things.
PEACE: All eventually are converted to the true Gospel and become partakers of the Heavenly Gift. The cities are rebuilt and a great period of peace continues for several generations.
This pattern can be found throughout the Book of Mormon.
"For Our Day encapsulates, organizes and skillfully aligns centuries of meticulously written and miraculously preserved ancient records that carry a critical warning message for our day. This sacred history, recorded by holy prophets who were shown our day in vision, was preserved by God to warn a specific latter day nation. They knew that secret combinations would cause systemic destruction brought on by ignorance and defiance of Godís law on this sacred and covenant land. It happened to them centuries before. They knew that should this nation fall it would directly impact the latter day Church in its mission to bring the gospel to the world. They tried to warn us. Our solutions are embedded in their parallel history. For Our Day puts it all together." Rod L. Meldrum, FIRM Foundation
