“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.
