1 Doctrine and Covenants 29 2 nd General Conference & Preparation for the mission to the Lamanites

2 "A revelation to six elders of the church and three members. Seeing somewhat different upon the death of Adam (that is, his transgression), therefore they made it a subject of prayer and enquired of the Lord and thus came the word of the Lord through Joseph the seer …" Underwood said that the verse of the Holy Writ referred to was Isaiah 52:8 where it said " … for they shall see eye to eye when the Lord shall bring again Zion."

5 Doctrine and Covenants 29:2 How is hearkening to the Savior’s voice different from just hearing His voice? Why do you think we need to be humble in order to be gathered by the Savior?

6 The Hailstorm: Revelation 16:21 Doctrine and Covenants 29:16 “Ripe in Iniquity”?

7 “It is a false idea that the Saints will escape all the judgments, whilst the wicked suffer; for all flesh is subject to suffer, and ‘the righteous shall hardly escape’ [see D&C 63:34]; still many of the Saints will escape, for the just shall live by faith [see Habakkuk 2:4]; yet many of the righteous shall fall a prey to disease, to pestilence, etc., by reason of the weakness of the flesh, and yet be saved in the Kingdom of God” (Teachings of Presidents of the Church: Joseph Smith [2007], 253).

8 Questions About Second Coming... 1.When will it be? 2.What is life going to be like before and during Christ’s return? 3.How do I prepare myself so I will be ready?

9 Purposes of Prophecy Concerning the 2 nd Coming Peace of Mind 23 Behold, I speak these things unto you for the elect's sake; and you also shall hear of wars, and rumors of wars; see that ye be not troubled, for all I have told you must come to pass; but the end is not yet. (JS-Matt 1:23)

10 Strengthen our Faith 5 That they might know and remember at the time of their coming that they had been made known unto them beforehand, to the intent that they might believe. (Helaman 16:5) Purposes of Prophecy Concerning the 2 nd Coming

12 1 st Appearance: Adam Ondi Ahman “Before the Lord Jesus descends openly and publicly in the clouds of glory, he will come in private to his prophet and to the apostles then living. Those who have held keys and powers and authorities in all ages from Adam to the present will also be present” (Bruce R. McConkie, The Millennial Messiah, 578–79 as quoted in LDS Institute Doctrines of the Gospel Manual).

13 2 nd Appearance: The Battle of Armageddon Revelation 16:16 JST 16 And He gathered them together into a place called in the Hebrew tongue Armageddon. Before the coming of Christ, the great war, sometimes called Armageddon, will take place as spoken of by Ezekiel, chapters 38 and 39. (Joseph Fielding Smith Jr., Doctrines of Salvation, Vol.3, p.45)

14  There will be a day and a night and a day without darkness (Zechariah 14:6-7)  The Lord will be clothed in red apparel (see D&C 133:46–48; Isaiah 63:2–3; Revelation 19:11–13).  The earth will reel to and fro, and the continents will be moved back together at the Savior’s coming (see D&C 88:87; Revelation 16:18–20;D&C 133:22–24).  Those who have laughed and mocked about the Savior’s coming will realize their folly (see D&C 45:49–50).  The wicked to weep, wail, gnash their teeth, and wish that the mountains would fall on them (see D&C 29:15; Isaiah 2:19, 21; Alma 12:14).  The glory of the Savior’s presence will consume the wicked (see Nahum 1:5–10; D&C 133:41; 5:19). 3 rd - Appearance: To the World

15 “He comes! The earth shakes, and the tall mountains tremble; the mighty deep rolls back to the north as in fear, and the rent skies glow like molten brass. He comes! The dead Saints burst forth from their tombs, and ‘those who are alive and remain’ are ‘caught up’ with them to meet him. The ungodly rush to hide themselves from his presence, and call upon the quivering rocks to cover them. He comes! The breath of his lips strikes death to the wicked. His glory is a consuming fire. The proud and rebellious are as stubble; Satan and his dark hosts are taken and bound—the prince has lost his dominion, for He whose right it is to reign has come, and ‘the kingdoms of this world have become the kingdoms of our Lord and of his Christ.’” (Charles Penrose, “Second Advent,” 583, as quoted in the Doctrines of the Gospel Institute Student Manual).

16 Christ’s Latter-day Appearances At Adam-ondi-Ahman To the Jews at the Battle of Armageddon. To the rest of the world – His coming in glory.

17 Ezra Taft Benson The Teachings of Ezra Taft Benson, 552 The way to build a solid basis for meeting big problems in the future is by carefully and soberly meeting smaller problems in the present.

18 Gordon B. Hinckley Conference Report, April 1995 This is a time to be strong. It is a time to move forward without hesitation, knowing well the meaning, the breadth and the importance of our mission. It is a time to do what is right regardless of the consequences that might follow. It is a time to be found keeping the commandments.
