Apocalyptic prophecies? Natural disasters have some people thinking about last days

No doubt end-time prophecies are rolling forth. The saints are commanded to know the signs of the times. While many will simply consider these events as par for the course, saints in tune with the Spirit will hear the voice the of Lord within these signs.

President Hinckley:
“What we have experienced in the past was all foretold, and the end is not yet,” President Hinckley said. “Just as there have been calamities in the past, we expect more in the future. What do we do?

“Someone has said it was not raining when Noah built the ark. But he built it, and the rains came.

“The Lord has said, ‘If ye are prepared ye shall not fear’ (D&C 38:30).

“The primary preparation is also set forth in the Doctrine and Covenants, wherein it says,

‘Wherefore, stand ye in holy places, and be not moved, until the day of the Lord come. (D&C 87:8).’ “

The LDS Church believes in modern scripture and revelation, in addition to the Bible. The LDS Church’s Doctrine and Covenants reaffirms the idea of very strong earthquakes in the last days before Christ’s second coming.

Apocalyptic prophecies? Natural disasters have some people thinking about last days: “Tsunamis, hurricanes, earthquakes. In the past year, calamities have struck countries around the world and more disasters will come in the last days, according to the Scriptures.”

  1. What we see going on around us in recent years is not the destruction prophecied for the last days. Rather, it’s business as usual – albiet tragic and disturbing. Such things as earthquakes, tsunamis, hurricanes, etc. have been around for thousands of years. The catastrophic signs of the last days will be far more devastating than what we’re seeing, by several orders of magnitude.
    While it behooves us to prepare for the ongoing, run-of-mill calamities with food storage and other preparations (as we have been counseled), there is little we can to to offset the effect of the destructions prophesied for the last days. That preparation is one of the heart and the spirit, not the storage shelf.

  2. i know that this is the last of times. the prophets have told us what to look for and now that we are living these time like joseph smith jr. said ” it will come upon the saints as it it were normal and they who say all is well in zion will not see it , but if you are prepaired you shall not fear and you will see these things come upon you. ” have you seen these things yet? have you prepaired yet? e.s. bensen said ” food storage is not a Recommendation but a commandment and those who do not prepair shall wish for the days they could.” pelase start now if you can and prepair for what is about to befall us. high prices then the crash of the all mity dollar. you have so very little time left. get ready. please
