I was listening to this talk today on my ipod and thought it was amazing. We really do live in times spoken of in the scriptures. It is amazing to think that Christ could come in our day. Are we prepared?
I think as we see the world around us and watch the news we can see the signs and wonders happening. The world has always had tragedies. I am not blind or dumb to that. And I know that wars have happened for thousands of years and they will rage on still. But I think the wide spread wickedness, the plague of pornography and the evidence that nature is showing her power is evidence enough that the time will come soon. In the Lords time of course.
When the Lord comes, will I be ready? I have been thinking a lot about that lately. What do I need to do in order to have the spirit be my guide, to be firm in my testimony of Christ? I think the answers lie in building a stronger relationship with my father in heaven, by reading my scriptures more and through diligent prayer.
I love the assurance that if we are prepared, we shall not fear. I was thinking in Sunday School how when you watch a movie where you know the ending and have read the book, you still are anxious and can be frightened. We will still watch as things happen as the time draws near and feel strong emotions of sadness, anxiousness, and fear. But we now Christ will come and be victorious. I love the ending.
