If ye will cast out the righteous from among you

Amulek told the people of Ammonihah:

 21 Yea, well doth he cry, by the voice of his angels that: I will come down among my people, with equity and justice in my hands.

22 Yea, and I say unto you that if it were not for the prayers of the righteous, who are now in the land, that ye would even now be visited with utter destruction; yet it would not be by flood, as were the people in the days of Noah, but it would be by famine, and by pestilence, and the sword.

23 But it is by the prayers of the righteous that ye are spared; now therefore, if ye will cast out the righteous from among you then will not the Lord stay his hand; but in his fierce anger he will come out against you; then ye shall be smitten by famine, and by pestilence, and by the sword; and the time is soon at hand except ye repent. (Alma 10)

I tell you that, even now, the righteous are being cast out by the wicked. They are losing their businesses, they are kicked out of their churches, they are being robbed of the fruits of their labor, they are being excluded from programs they have claim to, they are being fired, they are having their rights suspended, and they are being looted. You will see this expand and deepen. 

The casting out will expand and accelerate as the righteous resist evil through active means. Some will start shooting back, and this will just give the wicked excuses to double down on their means, causing a feedback loop.

The Lord is withholding judgment for the sake of the righteous. That will wane as the reasons the righteous have for leaving mount. 

The degree to which you are aligned to reality (things as they really are) will be made more and more apparent as the consequences of reality are exposed to a greater and greater degree. Those who are valiant for obtaining and living truth will be vindicated.

Live so that when the Lord brings equity and justice, it results in your vindication, not your destruction.
