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.
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. So far, two independent documentaries have been produced in the For Our Day series.

Did Mormon use the government of liberty in the Book of Mormon to foreshadow our divinely sanctioned Constitutional Republic?
Is there a link between the American founding principles and ancient Israel?
Is there irrefutable evidence of God’s providential hand in the founding and continuation of the American nation?
Does the Book of Mormon foreshadow our latter-day world in ways we have never before supposed?
Why are statements by George Washington and Captain Moroni nearly identical?
“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 God’s 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
“Simply put, For Our Day is scripture in action. Too many people believe all they need to do is read the word of God then just go about their lives. This film goes much deeper. It explains what God has been trying to tell us. It shows how the Book of Mormon is much more than a history of an ancient people–it is a powerful warning of things to come for us today. If we don’t wake up to these warnings, the consequences could be dire. For Our Day will wake you up! It is perhaps the most important film you can watch in order to truly understand why God made the painstaking efforts He did to ensure the Book of Mormon was delivered to latter-day America.” Timothy Ballard, Author of The American Covenant
