Class 12 – Sections 87 & 90 The Last Days
Section 87 – Prophecy on War What was the historical background?
Section 87 – Prophecy on War In November 1832, South Carolina threatened to secede from the Union over the issue of tariffs. The Federal Government threatened to send troops in. Received on Christmas Day, 1832.
Section 87 – Prophecy on War We need to remember that this prophecy has still only been partially fulfilled.
Section 87 v Verily, thus saith the Lord concerning the wars that will shortly come to pass, beginning at the rebellion of South Carolina, which will eventually terminate in the death and misery of many souls; And the time will come that war will be poured out upon all nations, beginning at this place.
Section 87 What was the “rebellion of South Carolina”?
Section 87 What was the “rebellion of South Carolina”? D&C 130:12-13 I prophesy, in the name of the Lord God, that the commencement of the difficulties which will cause much bloodshed previous to the coming of the Son of Man will be in South Carolina. It may probably arise through the slave question.
Section 87 What was the “rebellion of South Carolina”? The secession threat of 1832 The Civil War
Section 87 Alliances: the Southern States will call on other nations, even the nation of Great Britain, as it is called, and they shall also call upon other nations, in order to defend themselves against other nations; and then war shall be poured out upon all nations.
Section 87 Bottom Line: Wherefore, stand ye in holy places, and be not moved, until the day of the Lord come; for behold, it cometh quickly, saith the Lord.
Section 87 How do you understand the day of the Lord “cometh quickly”?
Section 90 Given in Kirtland, Feb. 1833
Section 90 The keys of the kingdom given unto you; which kingdom is coming forth for the last time. What are keys? Has the kingdom come forth yet?
Section 90 The keys of this kingdom shall never be taken from you, while thou art in the world, neither in the world to come. In what way does Joseph Smith still hold the keys of the kingdom?
Section 90 v. 5 They who receive the oracles of God, let them beware how they hold them lest they are accounted as a light thing, and are brought under condemnation thereby, and stumble and fall when the storms descend.
Section 90 v. 11 Every man shall hear the fulness of the gospel in his own tongue.
v. 24 Search diligently, pray always, and be believing, and all things shall work together for your good, if ye walk uprightly and remember the covenant wherewith ye have covenanted one with another. Section 90
