So I haven’t heard any conversation on the curse upon the ground being lifted as recorded in Gen 8:21. Can you point me to talks regarding this? Clearly God told Noah that he would no longer curse the ground for man’s sake. If this has already been discussed just point me to it. Thanks.

Charles,

mormon family gardenThe Lord’s covenant with Noah (found in Genesis 8:21 9:17) includes the assurance that He “will not again curse the ground any more for man’s sake.” Along with this promise was that the seasons and elements would obey their bounds so that Noah and his posterity could rely on the law of the harvest. I’m not aware of any talks on this subject, but modern revelation suggests that the covenant has been renewed in this dispensation. “I, the Lord, in the beginning cursed the land, even so in the last days have I blessed it, in its time, for the use of my saints, that they may partake in the fatness thereof” (Doctrine & Covenants 61:17). Not only is the curse revoked for the saints, but the land is seasonally blessed to produce bounty. (And for even more fun, you should take a look at the section heading for context and re-read the entire section).
