Matthew 25:31-34

When the Son of man shall come in his glory, and all the holy angels with him, then shall he sit upon the throne of his glory: And before him shall be gathered all nations: and he shall separate them one from another, as a shepherd divideth his sheep from the goats: And he shall set the sheep on his right hand, but the goats on the left. Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand, Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world:

After all the trials and tribulations there will be peace. The righteous will spend eternity in heaven with Christ and our Lord God. This is our end reward. This is why we are to follow his commandments and suffer trials and tribulations. This will happen, will you be prepared?

Luke 14:16-24

Then said he unto him, A certain man made a great supper, and bade many: And sent his servant at supper time to say to them that were bidden, Come; for all things are now ready. And they all with one consent began to make excuse. The first said unto him, I have bought a piece of ground, and I must needs go and see it: I pray thee have me excused. And another said, I have bought five yoke of oxen, and I go to prove them: I pray thee have me excused. And another said, I have married a wife, and therefore I cannot come. So that servant came, and shewed his lord these things. Then the master of the house being angry said to his servant, Go out quickly into the streets and lanes of the city, and bring in hither the poor, and the maimed, and the halt, and the blind. And the servant said, Lord, it is done as thou hast commanded, and yet there is room. And the lord said unto the servant, Go out into the highways and hedges, and compel them to come in, that my house may be filled. For I say unto you, That none of those men which were bidden shall taste of my supper.

The Lord is calling people to his supper, are you going to come listen to him or are you going to be busy? We only have one life to follow Christ so we better make the most of it.

Alma 40:9-14

Therefore, there is a time appointed unto men that they shall rise from the dead; and there is a space between the time of death and the resurrection. And now, concerning this space of time, what becometh of the souls of men is the thing which I have inquired

diligently of the Lord to know; and this is the thing of which I do know. And when the time cometh when all shall rise, then shall they know that God knoweth all the times which are appointed unto man. Now, concerning the state of the soul between death and the resurrection—Behold, it hath been made known unto me by an angel, that the spirits of all men, as soon as they are departed from this mortal body, yea, the spirits of all men, whether they be good or evil, are taken home to that God who gave them life. And then shall it come to pass, that the spirits of those which are righteous are received into a state of happiness, which is called paradise, a state of rest, a state of peace, where they shall rest from all their troubles, and from all care, and sorrow, etc. And then shall it come to pass, that the spirits of the wicked, yea, which are evil—for behold, they have no part nor portion of the Spirit of the Lord; for behold, they chose evil works rather than good; therefore the spirit of the devil did enter into them, and take possession of their house—and these shall be cast out into outer darkness; there shall be weeping, and wailing, and gnashing of teeth, and this because of their own iniquity, being led captive by the will of the devil. Now this is the state of the souls of the wicked, yea, in darkness, and a state of awful, fearful looking for of the fiery indignation of the wrath of God upon them; thus they remain in this state, as well as the righteous in paradise, until the time of their resurrection.

One our time here on earth is over our fate is sealed. We either wait for our resurrection in paradise, or we wait in a state of pain. Only our actions here in this life will determine what happens to us in the next. I know where I want to go.

Message 60:9

The harvest is on. The Lord has spoken and long plead that mankind will obey and fully set their hearts to do his will, for the sheaves are ungathered. The wheat and the tares have grown together. Now the cleansing shall be among men. Be humble that your lives may be full of the love of God for he will deliver.

Now is the time of the cleansing. God is separating the good fruit from the bad. It will be hard to watch as some of the people who we are close to end up not being with the Lord, but it is something that hast to happen. If we keep Christ’s commandments we will be placed with the good fruit.

Matthew 24:3-5

And as he sat upon the mount of Olives, the disciples came unto him privately, saying, Tell us, when shall these things be? and what shall be the sign of thy coming, and of the end of the world? And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you. For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many.

We have to be careful and not follow the teachings of a well spoken man. There are people out there who say they are working for Christ but are only going where the Devil leads them. Just because a message sound nice and the person teaching is nice does not mean it is from the Lord. We have to take everything and compare it to the words of God and all of his teachings. It will be confusing at times, but the Holy Spirit will be there to help.

Message 34:5

Behold, saith the Lord, a great work is to be done, and few there be that behold it. But the children of your God knoweth it, and heareth the will of the Father, for the Church of Christ shall receive her power to make ready her children, the Lamb’s bride, when he comes.

Christ’s church is not going to go away. It will be here for the second coming. There will be members that stay faithful though it all and will be able to witness this great and joyous event. It is our responsibility to prepare the world for it.

2nd Nephi 28:24-32

Therefore, wo be unto him that is at ease in Zion! Wo be unto him that crieth: All is well! Yea, wo be unto him that hearkeneth unto the precepts of men, and denieth the power of God, and the gift of the Holy Ghost! Yea, wo be unto him that saith: We have received, and we need no more! And in fine, wo unto all they that tremble, and are angry because of the truth of God! For behold, he that is built upon the rock receiveth it with gladness; and he that is built upon a sandy foundation trembleth lest he shall fall. Wo be unto him that shall say: We have received the word of God, and we need no more of the word of God, for we have enough! For behold, thus saith the Lord God: I will give unto the children of men line upon line, precept upon precept, here a little there a little; and blessed are they that hearken unto my precepts, and lend an ear unto my counsel, for they shall learn wisdom; for unto him that receiveth I will give more; and them that shall say, We have enough, from them shall be taken away even that which they have. Cursed is he that putteth his trust in man, or maketh flesh his arm, or shall hearken unto the precepts of men, save their precepts shall be given by the power of the Holy Ghost. Wo be unto the Gentiles, saith the Lord God of Hosts! For notwithstanding I shall lengthen out mine arm unto them from day to day, they will deny me; nevertheless, I will be merciful unto them, saith the Lord God, if they will repent and come unto me; for mine arm is lengthened out all the day long, saith the Lord God of Hosts.

The truth is out there, we just have to look for it. We cannot take someone else’s word for it, but must find it ourselves. Each one of us will be judged according to our works against God’s words. Are you prepared for that?

2nd Nephi 28:17-23

But behold, if the inhabitants of the earth shall repent of their wickedness and abominations they shall not be destroyed, saith the Lord of Hosts.  But behold, that great and abominable church, the whore of all the earth, must tumble to the earth, and great must be the fall thereof. For the kingdom of the devil must shake, and they which belong to it must needs be stirred up unto repentance, or the devil will grasp them with his everlasting chains, and they be stirred up to anger, and perish; For behold, at that day shall he rage in the hearts of the children of men, and stir them up to anger against that which is good.  And others will he pacify, and lull them away into carnal security, that they will say: All is well in Zion; yea, Zion prospereth, all is well—and thus the devil cheateth their souls, and leadeth them away carefully down to hell. And behold, others he flattereth away, and telleth them there is no hell; and he saith unto them: I am no devil, for there is none—and thus he whispereth in their ears, until he grasps them with his awful chains, from whence there is no deliverance. Yea, they are grasped with death, and hell; and death, and hell, and the devil, and all that have been seized therewith must stand before the throne of God, and be judged according to their works, from whence they must go into the place prepared for them, even a lake of fire and brimstone, which is endless torment.

There is always hope that people will see the lies that are being told today and come to Christ and his truth. God will always allow people to repent of their sins up to the end time. The ones that don’t come to Christ though will have to pay for their sins.

Hebrews 3:11-15

So I sware in my wrath, They shall not enter into my rest.) Take heed, brethren, lest there be in any of you an evil heart of unbelief, in departing from the living God. But exhort one another daily, while it is called To day; lest any of you be hardened through the deceitfulness of sin. For we are made partakers of Christ, if we hold the beginning of our confidence stedfast unto the end; While it is said, To day if ye will hear his voice, harden not your hearts, as in the provocation.

We must remain faithful until the end. We should try to help each other to stay close to the word of God and not stray from the truth. We must not harden our hearts to what God has for us to do and the direction that he wants us to go. If you fall away it will not be pretty for you in the end.

Message 93:3

The midnight cry is on. Hear, O ye ends of the earth. Come, the Spirit says, Come. The Lord and the word saith, Come all the way and deliverance will be yours. You will stand in holy places and inherit in the will of the Lord. The Kingdom and dominion shall be the inheritance of the humble and righteous.

Today is the day. Are you going to be ready for the midnight cry? There is only so much time for you to get yourself ready. You must find the truth and then act on it. Don’t wait until it is too late.


The turmoil is on. The greatest peril shall fill its place and mankind will inquire of the Lord their God. Their idols shall melt away; for the law shall go forth from Zion, cleansing the hearts of men. They shall stand before, being ministered unto for I come to give light, to instruct, to call, and to point the way.

Today is the day of turmoil. It is time for people to come to their God and receive their salvation. The way is being sent forth, it is up to you to follow.

Message 68:6

Conditions have come as I told you. Much sorrow is yet to come, suffering and sadness on every hand. Only among the more righteous shall peace be found.

Things will get worse before they get better. If you read the scriptures, you will find that the events leading up the second coming of Christ are not going to be pleasant. But if we make them through it, life will be grand. Let us keep the faith and we will be rewarded.

Jacob 5:70-77

And it came to pass that the Lord of the vineyard sent his servant; and the servant went and did as the Lord had commanded him, and brought other servants; and they were few. And the Lord of the vineyard saith unto them: Go to, and labor in the vineyard, with your mights. For behold, this is the last time that I shall nourish my vineyard; for the end is nigh at hand, and the season speedily cometh; and if ye labor with your mights with me ye shall have joy in the fruit which I shall lay up unto myself against the time which will soon come. And it came to pass that the servants did go to it, and labor with their mights; and the Lord of the vineyard labored also with them; and they did obey the commandments of the Lord of the vineyard in all things. And there began to be the natural fruit again in the vineyard; and the natural branches began to grow and thrive exceedingly; and the wild branches began to be plucked off and to be cast away; and they did keep the root and the top thereof equal, according to the strength thereof. And thus they labored, with all diligence, according to the commandments of the Lord of the vineyard, even until the bad had been cast away out of the vineyard, and the Lord preserved unto himself that the trees had become again the natural fruit; and they became like unto one body; and the fruit were equal; and the Lord of the vineyard had preserved unto himself the natural fruit, which was most precious unto him from the beginning. And it came to pass that when the Lord of the vineyard saw that his fruit was good, and that his vineyard was no more corrupt, he calleth up his servants, and sayeth unto them: Behold, for this last time have we nourished my vineyard; and thou beholdest that I have done according to my will; and I have preserved the natural fruit, that it is good, even like as it was in the beginning. And blessed art thou; for because that ye have been diligent in laboring with me in my vineyard, and have kept my commandments, and hath brought unto me again the natural fruit, that my vineyard is no more corrupted, and the bad is cast away, behold ye shall have joy with me because of the fruit of my vineyard. For behold, for a long time will I lay up of the fruit of my vineyard unto mine own self against the season, which speedily cometh; and for the last time have I nourished my vineyard, and pruned it, and dug about it, and dunged it; wherefore I will lay up unto mine own self of the fruit, for a long time, according to that which I have spoken. And when the time cometh that evil fruit shall again come into my vineyard, then will I cause the good and the bad to be gathered; and the good will I preserve unto myself, and the bad will I cast away into its own place. And then cometh the season and the end; and my vineyard will I cause to be burned with fire.

The vineyard in this story is the earth. The servants are the people who work for Christ. Christ is sending out his ministry into the world to spread the truth. When the time comes there will only be two options, good fruit and bad fruit. I hope that you are a good fruit.

Message 86:5-9

I bring a warning and a deliverance. All they that believe and obey the gospel shall find it. Many represent Christ and have faith to do many miracles. This is good, if they hear the final call—this the midnight cry and obey it. Their works will stand the test. If they speak against this work believing not that I come, they have not God—and will not be of the bride, the Lamb’s Church in the end. He that believeth not these words nor cometh not to obedience, hath not God. God’s plan will not change to suit them that believe not, they must conform to his will.

We must follow God’s will not our own. When we study the word of God and then choose not to follow it we only hurt ourselves. If you want to be with God on the last days you need to follow his will and commandments. You cannot add your own ideas or do your own thing. You must follow the truth.

Message 84:37

For the faithful, the sojourn in the wilderness is nearing an end, the Gentile times are closing in. The day comes when it will be said, ‘The people of the Lord’ and them that serve him not. Be ye repentant and the Lord will hear and heal all the weak and make you strong.

The end is coming. Are you ready for it? Are you going to be one of “The people of the Lord”? The choice is yours.

Message 74:3

“Likewise, a day wherein Satan has great power and seeks to destroy all he can of the good, but he shall fail in the end. He has swayed men for this long time to follow traditions of men and not the way of God; having a form of godliness but denying the power thereof. They turned from the former commandment and remembered it not, until now, the faithful are holding to the truth, even the Record of the Nephites and all the Lord’s words wherein there is but one Lord, one God, one salvation, one plan of redemption and a place in the hereafter for the faithful with God, and for those that doubt and are evil, captured by Satan, absorbed in his ways, shall remain so till the resurrections shall be, where the judgments are spread. It shall be man’s own ways while here that decides his decree. Woe to the doubtful, the wicked, the heedless, and those that plan to destroy.”

Satan has much power and has used it well in the past. He has convinced millions of people that it is ok not follow God 100%. People think that because they go to church that they will be saved. Satan will receive what is his in the end; I hope that you are not a part of it.

Message 74:2

Behold, this is a day when the Lord has established his Church among men, to bring salvation to the earth in its fullness, and prepare a bride, the Lamb’s wife; and power and authority is given that it shall be done.

In order to have to have a clean church the Lord will give us trials that we must go through. The ones that will make it through will be ready for the wedding feast. The church will also grow in these last days. There will be many people who are searching for the truth that will find it here.

Message 34:3

Hearken, hearken: this is a day of haste! Will my servants do my bidding? Lo I have waited, yet many are slow to heed, while many there be that have a desire to put on the whole armor of Christ, saith the Master of men. Take to them the message, for Christ’s coming is near. Preach and teach the written words and my Spirit will be with you as in the days of yore, for my gospel must be taken to all nations, for a mighty shaking will come, then an awakening, and many that hear will obey.

Will you hear the warning? Will you follow his instructions? Will you be ready for the end? Christ will return and his plan is set in motion. Will you be a part of it or will you outside looking in?

Matthew 25:31-34

When the Son of man shall come in his glory, and all the holy angels with him, then shall he sit upon the throne of his glory: And before him shall be gathered all nations: and he shall separate them one from another, as a shepherd divideth his sheep from the goats: And he shall set the sheep on his right hand, but the goats on the left. Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand, Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world:

After all the trials and tribulations there will be peace. The righteous will spend eternity in heaven with Christ and our Lord God. This is our end reward. This is why we are to follow his commandments and suffer trials and tribulations. This will happen, will you be prepared?

Message 86 38-45

There will be great changes in the unsafeness of peoples, homes and travel—dangers will arise. This will tie things up here and navigation will be at a low ebb. Many will seek to run to and fro, still conditions will be hard at times. However, again a change will come and all men will begin to respect one another and work together, bearing one another’s burdens and comfort will come to the humble. Distress of nations and perplexity will be felt everywhere. However, none can save but themselves and that through the Lord. Man will say, ‘Oh that these things were hid from me and I knew them not.’ Have you not been warned of the things to come? There will be riots, strikes, outbursts against the government, picketing and much destruction of property and people, confusion and dismay, emptiness and untrust toward many people. Labor shall rise up against the hand that feeds them: unrest everywhere. For a time these conditions will be terrible, then suddenly a change will come, and peace will take hold of all that look to the Lord and a better way. Deliverance will come as the people seek to work together and love one another: even all, lifting the fallen, the downtrodden, the outcast and preserving hope in mankind. Salvation is free to all that will hear and take hold and work this way.

Even the messenger of the Lord tells us what is going to happen in the future. There are bright spots though however. First off is says that peace will take hold and all will look to the Lord. This will be a great relief after all the hardship that people will have gone though. Second and the most important is that no matter what happens we can still have salvation though Christ. As long as we are following his plan we will spend eternity with him in heaven. That is what is the most important.
