At the Second Coming the proud and wicked shall be burned as stubble—Elijah shall return before that great and dreadful day.

4a Remember ye the law of Moses
This is NOT stating a return to the performances of animal sacrifice which was
done away with and fulfilled in the Lord, but it is a statement concerning
the commandments and judgements of the Lord as set out by Moses, that is the
Ten Commandments and other such great commandments of the law, its statutes
and judgments which mark the path of righteousness unto the Lord. It is
scary to think that in the United States it is becoming ever more prevailent
that the national position is to disregard the Lord and his commandments even
to not allowing the commandments of God to be displayed in public places. This
land is the Lord's own land, held choice above all other lands and it must
be inhabbited upon the principles of worshiping Jesus Christ in righteousness
else those who do not when fully ripe will be swept off of the land as were
they during the times of Noah, the Jaredites and the Nephites. To avoid such
a fate we must return unto the Lord, pay our tithes and offerings unto him and
remember and keep his commandments.
4a with the statutes and judgments Just what and were are these 'statutes and judgments of God which we are to also remeber and observe? Leviticus chapter 19 and 20 records a number of them hung on and associated with the concept of loving they neighbor as they self as well as properly keeping the commandments. (see Leviticus 19 & 20)
