I share these things because I believe the world needs to have as many witnesses as possible backing up the words of the prophets and the scriptures. I share in order to add my voice as a witness to the truth of the writings in the scriptures. Elder Bednar asked members of the church to "sweep the earth as with a flood" on the internet with the gospel in order to bring souls to Christ. I am a witness that Jesus Christ will come again, that the signs of the times are happening now, and that these things have been taught and testified of in the scriptures and by the mouth of both modern day and ancient prophets.
In 3 Nephi 28:7 it states: Therefore more blessed are ye...ye shall live to behold all the doings of the Father unto the children of men, even until all things shall be fulfilled according to the will of the Father, when I shall come in my glory with the powers of heaven." (emphasis added). I believe this scripture is literal, and that what the Lord is teaching here is He will come in His glory and is coming with His powers of heaven.
Again, the coming of a planet to represent Christ's glory (and I would add moons to represent His Kingdom and the Powers of Heaven) is referred to in Doctrine and Covenants 88:93 which states, "And immediately there shall appear a great sign in heaven, and all people shall see it together." Also Matthew 24:29 states, "And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory." Also Luke 21: 25-27, "And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring; Men's hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven [(the weather)] shall be shaken. and then shall they see the Son of man coming in a cloud with power and great glory.
When the scriptures say the powers of heaven shall be shaken, I believe that they are describing weather control. When man attempts to control the weather, it shakes the powers of heaven. This is exactly what has been going on since 1960 and you can read about it on geoengineeringwatch.org. Then compare the plagues of weather control with Revelation Ch. 9 and the desolation that occurs when the fifth angel sounds his trumpet. To me it is obvious that it is describing modern day weather warfare.
I think as members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, there is an extra responsibility for us to be following the Holy Spirit in our lives, and doing everything we can for the Lord in these last days, to bring souls to Christ and to be chosen by Him.
The scriptures talk about the the powers of heaven in Doctrine and Covenants 121: 36 which states, "That the rights of the priesthood are inseparably connected with the powers of heaven, and that the powers of heaven cannot be controlled nor handled only upon the principles of righteousness." (emphasis added).
This is the one lesson that people cannot learn and therefore remain unchosen. In verse 39-40 it explains further that: "We have learned by sad experience that it is the nature and disposition of almost all men, as soon as they get a little authority, as they suppose, they will immediately begin to exercise unrighteous dominion. hence many are called but few are chosen. I would also like to add Doctrine and Covenants 64:40 when it states, "And even the bishop, who is a judge, and his counselors, if they are not faithful in their stewardships shall be condemned, and others shall be planted in their stead."
The devil is really trying our hearts right now. We need to overcome all that the devil is throwing at us. I feel impressed to include Doctrine and Covenants 76:31-32 which pertains to members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints who have been baptized and received a sure knowledge of the power of God which states, "Thus saith the Lord concerning all those who know my power, and have been made partakers thereof, and suffered themselves through the power of the devil to be overcome, and to deny the truth and defy my power--They are they who are the sons of perdition, of whom I say that it had been better for them never to have been born;"
It struck me that God is talking about the Saints who fail to overcome the trials of the devil. It is so necessary in these days to get the Holy Spirit with us and obey it so we can overcome our trials. We were not sent here to suffer, but to overcome what the devil is throwing at us. The battle rages stronger every day. All the physical turmoil is a physical manifestation as to what is happening in our lives spiritually. Let us keep our homes and families clean from the power of the adversary, and let it shine with the Power of the Lord. We can do this by following the promptings of the Holy Spirit.
Doctrine and Covenants 64:22-23 states: "I the Lord, will not hold any guilty that shall go with an open heart up to the land of Zion; for I the Lord, require the hearts of the children of men. Behold, now it is called today until the coming of the Son of Man..." and also verse 34, "Behold the Lord requireth the heart and a willing mind; and the willing and obedient shall eat the good of the land of Zion in these last days."
If we follow the promptings of the Lord, we will have food to eat in these terrible times forthcoming. And they are coming. If the Lord is inspiring you to prepare temporally, please do so. For God cannot bless you if you do not obey the promptings He is giving you specifically. Doctrine and Covenants 64:24 states, "For after today cometh the burning..and I will burn them up, for I am the Lord of Hosts; and I will not spare any that remain in Babylon."
The Septebember 2014 Home Teaching Message was by the Prophet President Monson and the topic was, "Are We Prepared?" I would like to include a sentence from this message which states:
We should remember that the best storehouse system would be for every family in the Church to have a supply of food, clothing, and, where possible, other necessities of life.
If the Lord is leading you to hearken to this counsel more or less, then please do all that the Lord commands you. It is necessary that we all have oil in our lamps in our ability to listen to the individual promptings the Lord gives us to help us obey the commandments of the prophets.
