August 31, 2020 - Be ready!!

It will be a time of great and terrible fears, of cataclysmic upheavals of nature, of weeping and wailing (D&C 19:5), of repentance that comes too late, and of crying out unto the Lord for mercy. But for those who in that judgment are found acceptable, it will be a day for thanksgiving, for the Lord shall come with his angels, and the apostles who were with him in Jerusalem, and those who have been resurrected. Further, the graves of the righteous will be opened and they shall come forth. (See D&C 88:97.) Then will begin the great millennium (D&C 43:30) period of a thousand years when Satan shall be bound and the Lord shall reign over his people. Can you imagine the wonder and the beauty of that era when the adversary shall not have influence? Think of his influence upon you now and reflect on the peace of that time when you will be free from such influence. There will be quiet and goodness where now there is contention and evil.

President Gordon B. Hinckley, "We Need Not Fear His Coming", Liahona, July 1982



As I look at what's happening in the world, I personally think we are getting closer and closer. As Glenn Beck says just today, (paraphrasing)... We have passed the exits, we have crossed the threshold and this is a beginning of a new era.


I don't know much worse things will get. I don't know how long we will have to endure those things.


All I can do, all any of us can do, is look to the Savior.


How?


Well, He's told us how.


Do the simple, little things. Get close to the Lord and everything will be alright. Rely on personal revelation. He is talking to you. Focus on your family and loved ones. Be an example to them and those around you.


We may get caught up in the middle, but, in the eternal scheme of things, it will be alright. At that time when the Lord comes, there will be no contention, or evil, or upheaval, or riots, or PC, or any negative influence whatsoever.
