Ice Shall Flow Down at Their Presence: Possible Interpretations

Ice Shall Flow Down at Their Presence: Possible Interpretations
compiled by Nate Richardson, editor@richardsonstudies.com
Here are the ideas I’ve heard for “The ice shall flow down at their presence” from D&C 133
———————————————————————–
First, here is the passage from D&C 133:22-34, esp. 26:

“22 And it shall be a voice as the voice of many waters, and as the voice of a great thunder, which shall break down the mountains, and the valleys shall not be found.

23 He shall command the great deep, and it shall be driven back into the north countries, and the islands shall become one land;

24 And the land of Jerusalem and the land of Zion shall be turned back into their own place, and the earth shall be like as it was in the days before it was divided.

25 And the Lord, even the Savior, shall stand in the midst of his people, and shall reign over all flesh.

26 And they who are in the north countries shall come in remembrance before the Lord; and their prophets shall hear his voice, and shall no longer stay themselves; and they shall smitethe rocks, and the ice shall flow down at their presence.

27 And an highway shall be cast up in the midst of the great deep.

28 Their enemies shall become a prey unto them,

29 And in the barren deserts there shall come forth pools of living water; and the parched ground shall no longer be a thirsty land.

30 And they shall bring forth their rich treasures unto the children of Ephraim, my servants.

31 And the boundaries of the everlasting hills shall tremble at their presence.

32 And there shall they fall down and be crowned with glory, even in Zion, by the hands of the servants of the Lord, even the children of Ephraim.

33 And they shall be filled with songs of everlasting joy.

34 Behold, this is the blessing of the everlasting God upon the tribes of Israel, and the richer blessing upon the head of Ephraim and his fellows.”


Now here are possible interpretations:

-Ice moving to make a path
-Heat coming from beneath, melting the glaciers and skating them down the hill to the sea.
-Fires of the second coming turn the land into a paradise, not a cold wasteland, similar to the creation of fertile Hawaii as a product of fire.
-The land becoming green again at the 2nd coming of Christ
-Ice = tribes from the north; flowing = going to Zion
-Immigration and Customs Enforcement ICE will flow down/let them come to America
-Nothing to do with ice.
-Something to do with the continents coming back together into 1 continent as they were before the days of Peleg.
-Ice flows down when parts of the earth that were taken return again and reunite with the earth again.
-There are rocks and ice that hinder the passing of the tribes in the north. When the time comes, their prophets shall break the rock barriers, and melt the ice, opening up the way for their return. And a highway of earth will be created, a land bridge, providing an avenue for travel across the ocean.
