The righteous flee to the wilderness for their lives

Mosiah 18:31:34 
31 And these things were done in the borders of the land, that they might not come to the knowledge of the king.
32 But behold, it came to pass that the king, having discovered a movement among the people, sent his servants to watch them. Therefore on the day that they were assembling themselves together to hear the word of the Lord they were discovered unto the king.
33 And now the king said that Alma was stirring up the people to rebellion against him; therefore he sent his army to destroy them.
34 And it came to pass that Alma and the people of the Lord were apprised of the coming of the king’s army; therefore they took their tents and their families and departed into the wilderness.

This is the pattern that the Lord uses all throughout the Scriptures, to preserve His people. I feel strongly that we too, or many of us, will have to flee to places of refuge to protect ourselves and our families in the coming days. May each and everyone of us be ready to act upon the promptings and commandments of the Lord. May we also have the courage to lovingly worn our family members and friends to be ready as well.
