Mormons believe that the Old-Testament prophet Isaiah foresaw the restoration of God’s Church in the last days. Throughout the latter half of the 19th century, thousands of Mormons from many nations migrated across the great plains to Utah, a place they considered to be their “Zion,” a “New Jerusalem.” In the late 19th century, when the Territory of Desseret applied for U.S. statehood, members of the Church wanted the state to bare the same name. The U.S. government, however, rejected that request and instead named the new state “Utah.” Unbeknownst to both the members of the Church and the government at the time, in the native language of the area “Utah” means “the top of the mountains.”
After prophesying of the apostasy (in verse 10), the Old-Testament prophet Isaiah foresaw the bringing forth of a “marvellous work and a wonder,” the restoration of the Church of Christ in the last days.
Luke prophesied of a latter-day restitution, or restoration, and indicated that holy prophets had foreseen it since the beginning.
The apostle Paul also foresaw a future time, which he called the “dispensation of the fulness of times,” in which the original teachings of Christ would once again be had on the earth.
The apostle John also foresaw a latter-day restoration of the “everlasting gospel” made by way of heavenly visitations. That gospel is being preached to “every nation, and kindred, and tongue, and people” by way of the LDS missionary program and member missionaries around the world.
