Prophecies: Signs of the Times, Second Coming, Millennium by Matthew B. Brown

Prophecies of the signs of the times, the Second Coming, and the Millennium have been made available to Latter-day Saints in great abundance. They are to be found threaded throughout the scriptures of the Restoration and also in the inspired words of Church leaders. But they are not just to be given a passing thought or a cursory examination. The Lord Jesus Christ has admonished His disciples to be instructed more perfectly “in all things pertaining to the kingdom of God,” which includes “things which must shortly come to pass” (D&C 88:77-79).

On the pages of this intriguing, insightful, and instructive book, readers will learn:

  • The nature of the council to be held at Adam-ondi-Ahman
  • Parables of preparation for the Lord’s return, final judgment, and reward
  • The governmental structure that will hold sway during the Millennium
  • Signs that are associated with the battle of Armageddon
  • The purposes behind the scourging of the earth
  • The identification of the 144,000 high priests on Mount Zion
  • Scriptural patterns that help to clarify the meaning of several prophecies
  • Mythology that is associated with the last days
  • And much more . . .

Joseph Smith indicated that the Saints will “do well to discern the signs of the times as they pass along, that the day of the Lord may not ‘overtake them as a thief in the night.'”

Come to Zion: Through Cloud and Sunshine by Dean Hughes

The second volume in the Come to Zion series, Through Cloud and Sunshine has been highly anticipated. In this sequel to The Winds and the Waves, Will and Liz Lewis have settled in Nauvoo after emigrating from England. They experience life with the Saints and struggle to deal with the rigors of life in a new country. They witness crucial events in Church history during the last years of the Prophet Joseph’s life. Meanwhile, Jeff and Abby—living in modern-day Nauvoo—learn more about Jeff ’s ancestors and face their own set of challenges.

Beloved novelist Dean Hughes vividly depicts real, everyday life in early Nauvoo—the spiritual and emotional challenges as well as the physical challenges. The skillful interweaving of the sto ries of these two couples, separated by five generations and 150 years, provides a unique way to bring Church history to life and show how much we can learn from those who went before us.
