I believe that the sons and daughters of YHWH will do their best to get the sons and daughters of men to follow God’s ways, aka to repent, such that they will become sons and daughters of God.

And they testify of the wickedness they know of, as commanded in the law/Torah to do so, and do not hide knowledge they have for some supposed future date.

I don’t believe people following YHWH direction keep claiming they are working on fixing things while not calling people to repentance and not sharing their detailed testimonies of the evil they know of.

I believe one example from the scriptures that support my belief is of Nephi in Helman (LDS 7 – 10) (RLDS 3). Below are some excepts I find very relevant.

Helaman (LDS 7:2) (RLDS 3:1) For he had been forth among the people who were in the land northward, and did PREACH the WORD OF GOD unto them, and did PROPHESY many things unto them;

Helaman (LDS 7:4-5) (RLDS 3:3-4)
4 And seeing the people in a state of such AWFUL WICKEDNESS, and those GADIANTON ROBBERS filling the JUDGEMENT-SEATS—having USURPED the power and authority of the land; LAYING ASidE the COMMANDMENTS of GOD, and NOT in the LEAST ARIGHT BEFORE HIM; doing NO JUSTICE unto the children of men; 5 CONDEMNING THE RIGHTEOUS because of their righteousness; letting the GUILTY and the WICKED go UNPUNISHED because of their money; and MOREOVER to be held in OFFICE at the HEAD of GOVERNMENT, to rule and do according to their wills, that they might get GAIN and GLORY of the world, and, moreover, that they might the more easily commit ADULTERY, and STEAL, and KILL, and do according to their OWN WILLS—

Helaman (LDS 7:17) (RLDS 3:18) O REPENT ye, REPENT ye! Why will ye DIE? TURN ye, TURN ye unto the LORD your GOD. WHY has he FORSAKEN you?

Helaman (LDS 7:25-28) (RLDS 3:28-30)
25 Yea, wo be unto you because of that GREAT ABOMINATION which has come among you; and ye have UNITED YOURSELVES unto it, yea, to that SECRET BAND which was established by GADIANTON! 26 Yea, wo shall come unto you because of that pride which ye have suffered to enter your hearts, which has lifted you up beyond that which is good BECAUSE of your exceedingly great RICHES! 27 Yea, wo be unto you because of YOUR WICKEDNESS and ABOMINATIONS! 28 And except ye REPENT ye shall perish; yea, even your LANDS shall be TAKEN from you, and ye shall be DESTROYED from off the face of the earth.

Helaman (LDS 8:4) (RLDS 3:36) And those judges were angry with him because he SPAKE PLAINLY unto them CONCERNING their SECRET WORKS of DARKNESS; nevertheless, they durst not lay their own hands upon him, FOR THEY FEARED THE PEOPLE lest they should cry out against them.

Helaman (LDS 8:7) (RLDS 3:39) And it came to pass that thus they did stir up the people to anger against Nephi, and raised contentions among them; for there were some who did cry out: Let this man alone, for he is a good man, and those THINGS which he SAITH will surely COME TO PASS except we REPENT;

Helaman (LDS 8:10) (RLDS 3:42-43) And it came to pass that those people who SOUGHT to DESTROY NEPHI were compelled BECAUSE OF THEIR FEAR, that they did not lay their hands on him; therefore he began again to speak unto them, seeing that he had gained favor in the eyes of some, insomuch that the remainder of them did fear.

Helaman (LDS 8:27-28) (RLDS 3:65-66)
27 Yea, behold it is now even at your doors; yea, go ye in unto the judgment-seat, and search; and behold, YOUR JUDGE IS MURDERED, and he lieth in his blood; and he hath been MURDERED BY HIS BROTHER, who seeketh to sit in the judgment-seat. 28 And behold, they BOTH BELONG to your SECRET BAND, whose author is Gadianton and the EVIL ONE who seeketh to destroy the souls of men.

Helaman (LDS 9:1) (RLDS 3:67-68) Behold, now it came to pass that when Nephi had spoken these words, CERTAIN MEN who were among them RAN TO THE JUDGMENT-SEAT; yea, even there were five who went, and they said among themselves, as they went:

Helaman (LDS 9:5) (RLDS 3:72) But now, when they saw they believed, and fear came upon them lest all the judgments which Nephi had spoken should come upon the people; therefore they did quake, and had fallen to the earth.

Helaman (LDS 9:14) (RLDS 3:83) We ran and came to the place of the judgment-seat, and when WE SAW ALL THINGS EVEN AS NEPHI HAD TESTIFIED, we were astonished insomuch that we fell to the earth; and when we were recovered from our astonishment, behold they cast us into prison.

Helaman (LDS 9:15) (RLDS 3:84) Now, as for the murder of this man, we know not who has done it; and only this much we know, WE RAN AND CAME ACCORDING AS YE DESIRED, and behold he was dead, ACCORDING TO THE WORDS OF NEPHI.

Helaman (LDS 9:23) (RLDS 3:93-94) Behold ye say that I have agreed with a man that he should murder Seezoram, our chief judge. But behold, I say unto you, that this is because I HAVE TESTIFIED unto you that ye might KNOW CONCERNING THIS THING; yea, even for a WITNESS unto you, that I did know of the WICKEDNESS and ABOMINATIONS which are AMONG YOU.

Helaman (LDS 9:24) (RLDS 3:95) And because I have done this, ye say that I have agreed with a man that he should do this thing; yea, because I showed unto you this sign ye are angry with me, and seek to destroy my life.

Helaman (LDS 9:25-36) (RLDS 3:96-105)
25 And now behold, I will SHOW unto you ANOTHER SIGN, and see if ye will in this thing seek to destroy me. 26 Behold I say unto you: Go to the house of Seantum, who is the brother of Seezoram, and say unto him— 27 Has Nephi, the pretended prophet, who doth prophesy so much evil concerning this people, agreed with thee, in the which ye have murdered Seezoram, who is your brother? 28 And behold, he shall say unto you, Nay. 29 And ye shall say unto him: Have ye murdered your brother? 30 And he shall stand with fear, and wist not what to say. And behold, he shall deny unto you; and he shall make as if he were astonished; nevertheless, he shall declare unto you that he is innocent. 31 But behold, ye shall examine him, and YE SHALL FIND BLOOD upon the skirts of his CLOAK. 32 And when ye have seen this, ye shall say: From whence cometh this blood? Do we not know that it is the blood of your brother? 33 And then shall HE TREMBLE, and shall LOOK PALE, even AS if DEATH had come upon him. 34 And then shall ye say: Because of this fear and this paleness which has come upon your face, behold, we know that thou art guilty. 35 And then shall greater fear come upon him; and THE SHALL HE CONFESS unto you, and deny no more that he has done this murder. 36 And then shall he say unto you, that I, Nephi, know nothing concerning the matter save it were given unto me by the power of God. And then shall ye know that I am an honest man, and that I am sent unto you from God.

Helaman (LDS 9:37-38) (RLDS 3:106-108)
37 And it came to pass that they WENT and DID, even according as Nephi had said unto them. And behold, the words which he had said were true; for according to the words he did deny; and also according to the words he did confess. 38 And he was brought to prove that he himself was the very murderer, insomuch that the five were set at liberty, and also was Nephi.

Helaman (LDS 9:41) (RLDS 3:110-111) And there were others who said: Behold, he is a god, for except he was a god he could not know of all things. For behold, he has told us the thoughts of our hearts, and also has told us things; and even HE HAS BROUGHT UNTO OUR KNOWLEDGE THE TRUE MURDERER of our chief judge.

Helaman (LDS 10:2-3) (RLDS 3:113-114)
2 And it came to pass that Nephi went his way towards his own house, pondering upon the things which the Lord had shown unto him. 3 And it came to pass as he was thus pondering—being much cast down because of the wickedness of the people of the Nephites, their secret works of darkness, and their murderings, and their plunderings, and all manner of iniquities—and it came to pass as he was thus pondering in his heart, behold, a voice came unto him saying:
