Thoughts on The Gospel of Jesus Christ

The Seven Seals

The Seven Seals

Though the Gregorian calendar years do not line up exactly with beginnings and endings of the thousand year breaks, it may actually be more accurate than we think.

It would not be surprising to me if the Lord returns in the year 2032 or 2033. My reasoning for that is that He lived to the age of 32 or 33, depending on what you read. If we offset the year 2000 with the age of his death, we are at 2032 or 2033. Of course that may be entirely inaccurate as I am merely speculating, and who can hold the Lord to an exact timeline?

D&C 49:7

I, the Lord God, have spoken it; but the hour and the day no man knoweth, neither the angels in heaven, nor shall they know until he comes.

However, His disciples look forward to His coming and should be watching and waiting with all perseverance, and anticipation.

Ephesians 6:18

Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints;

1 Thessalonians 5:6

Therefore let us not sleep, as do others; but let us watch and be sober.

There are lots of things that must occur before then. But one can hope. Here is a list of some of them:

Requirements Before The Second Coming of Christ

Time of the Gentiles is fulfilled

D&C 88:89-90

89 For after your testimony cometh the testimony of earthquakes, that shall cause groanings in the midst of her, and men shall fall upon the ground and shall not be able to stand.

90 And also cometh the testimony of the voice of thunderings, and the voice of lightnings, and the voice of tempests, and the voice of the waves of the sea heaving themselves beyond their bounds.

Wars, Wicked slay the wicked, Saints hardly escape

D&C 63:33-34

33 I have sworn in my wrath, and decreed wars upon the face of the earth, and the wicked shall slay the wicked, and fear shall come upon every man;

34 And the saints also shall hardly escape; nevertheless, I, the Lord, am with them, and will come down in heaven from the presence of my Father and consume the wicked with unquenchable fire.

Wicked suffer, Flies abound, Possible Nuclear War or Flesh-Eating Disease

D&C 29:17-19

17 And it shall come to pass, because of the wickedness of the world, that I will take vengeance upon the wicked, for they will not repent; for the cup of mine indignation is full; for behold, my blood shall not cleanse them if they hear me not.

18 Wherefore, I the Lord God will send forth flies upon the face of the earth, which shall take hold of the inhabitants thereof, and shall eat their flesh, and shall cause maggots to come in upon them;

19 And their tongues shall be stayed that they shall not utter against me; and their flesh shall fall from off their bones, and their eyes from their sockets;

Adam Comes to Adam-Ondi-Ahman

Daniel 7:9

9 I beheld till the thrones were cast down, and the Ancient of days did sit, whose garment was white as snow, and the hair of his head like the pure wool: his throne was like the fiery flame, and his wheels as burning fire.

TPJS, p.157

Daniel in his seventh chapter speaks of the Ancient of days; he means the oldest man, our Father Adam, Michael, he will call his children together and hold a council with them to prepare them for the coming of the Son of Man. He (Adam) is the father of the human family, and presides over the spirits of all men, and all that have had the keys must stand before him in this grand council. This may take place before some of us leave this stage of action. The Son of Man stands before him, and there is given him glory and dominion. Adam delivers up his stewardship to Christ, that which was delivered to him as holding the keys of the universe, but retains his standing as head of the human family.

Revelation Chapters 8 and 9

I won’t list all the scriptures, but they are worth studying:
