Isaiah 13 The introduction of this chapter (verses 2-5) to me has much to do with temple worship and work. Though this talks of the Lord’s preparations against the world at the last and final battle, the wording in verses 2 and 3 draws a parallel to temple rites and ordinances. This is one of […]
Isaiah 11 The opening of this chapter gives us a glimpse into the millennial reign of Christ. We find such paradoxical descriptions as a lamb and a lion lying down together being lead by a small child. (see vs. 6) There is also a brief description of how we will arrive at this state of […]
Isaiah 10 Thoughts from reading the chapter preface: Now Isaiah is speaking to Assyria (who was the much larger, real threat to Judah all along. Destruction of Assyria is foretold as a type for the Second Coming.) The end comes when the work of the Lord is completed (See vs. 12). Then the end of […]
Isaiah 9 This chapter starts off where Chapter 8 ended: a land in darkness. But there are comforting words found herein. This is not as bad as seasons past. Matthew 4:14-16 points to the start of Christ’s mortal ministry as fulfillment of this prophecy. Yet the wording here seems to suggest a time yet to […]

3 Nephi 11:8, 37-38 What will it be like when Christ comes again? The answer is right here. And we have an extensive detailed account of it. It will not be dramatically different or unlike what is being described here among the Nephites. (see verse 8) And again I say unto you, ye must repent, […]
2 Aug 2016 – I was in chapters 11 and 12 today. I find the events of chapter 12 compelling, though they are not full articulated here. I am sure that if I study what others have written about the Savior’s Second Coming at Jerusalem, I will be able to find more information.
Matthew 24, Mark 13, Luke 12:37–48; 17:20–37; 21:5–38, JST-Matthew 1, Doctrine & Coventants 45:16-59 I am brought to consider the role of the saints, those that would publish peace as part of the fulfillment of the last days. 1 Nephi 13:37 gives clarity to this particular point. For example, in Luke 21 there are great […]
