Redemption for Zion  

D&C 100:13, 15; “And now I give unto you a word concerning Zion. Zion shall be redeemed, although she is chastened for a little season. 15 Therefore, let your hearts be comforted; for all things shall work together for good to them that walk uprightly, and to the sanctification of the church.”

Prophecy given in Perrysburg, NY on October 12, 1833. History of the Church 1:416, 419-421.

The phrase “for a little season” is what is in question here.  It’s been 180 years!  While we all know and understand God works on His own timing (and rightfully so!) this has pushed the limits for “a little season” way past what is reasonable.  God doesn’t operate this way with His children.
