Did you know the LDS Institute Manual has a timeline? An order of events?
I have used this in the past, but have revisited it to see if the events of today shed new light. Here is the left side of a two page layout. Take a moment to review some of the information.
You can download the whole thing here: https://www.churchofjesuschrist.org/bc/content/shared/content/images/gospel-library/manual/10734/book-of-revelation-overview_1317093_prt.pdf
Here is the right side of the timeline:
1. We are in the 6th Seal still. The 7th Seal will open with the destruction of the wicked and that has not happened yet. The idea that there is 20.8 years of a 1/2 hour of silence was only a "theory" and it has not proven out or else the Second Coming would have occurred in 2020.8 AD.
2. We are in the 6th Seal. Notice the "great calamities" and "Zion established" are still to happen. We know from Revelation 13:5 that the "mouth" or leader of the beast (New World Order) will have 42 months (3.5 years) and then the Savior comes to destroy the wicked. This is the last 3.5 years before the Savior's Second Coming.
Also included in this 3.5 years is the "mouth"/leader will drive the Saints into the wilderness (Rev 12) for a time, times and half time (3.5 years).
The "mouth" will also start the war in Israel called Armageddon (Dan. 11) and Ezek 38 (heading) says Armageddon will usher in the Second Coming.
So what happens in the first 3.5 years of a 7 year tribulation?
The destruction of the wicked is held back until the righteous are sealed! Wait, what? Rev 7:14 tells of this "harvest" through the restored gospel that will bring about a seal in the foreheads of these individuals, "redeemed from the earth", representing 12,000 of the 12 tribes, thus the number 144k as a "title". Rev. 14:1-20 shows the Lamb on Mt. Zion (New Jerusalem) with those who have been sealed. We will need to start New Jerusalem before the Savior comes to destroy the wicked. This will happen in the first and last 3.5 years.
What else will happen in the first 3.5 years? Daniel tells us about the political nature of kings or "presidents" of a mighty nation. (Read Dan 11 heading)
Here is where the last 3.5 years will start:

David Clark's New Book!
For those of you on the NFP Forum, you may remember our admin David Clark who was a survivor of a biological attack in the Iraq War. He was sent over as a lawyer and was shown a warehouse full of biological weapons, and within months he was reduced to being a quadriplegic. He wasted no time diverting his energies into getting a PhD in the study of Isaiah, and writing a book about his experience!
He decided to put his thesis into a book! Here's his description:
My book, Steward Leadership: Jesus’ Leadership Model, is on Amazon!
The purpose of the book is to illustrate that steward leadership is better than servant leadership. In fact, servant leadership is a subset of steward leadership.
In conducting my comparison, I utilize the Lord’s Servant in Isaiah as the lens or framework to accomplish such. Avraham calls this Servant the end-times servant. Others call him the Davidic servant. In my book, I refer to him as the Lord’s Servant. It’s the same person.
I know that there have been multiple questions about this Servant. In my book, I spend a large portion of the book dissecting the primary chapters in Isaiah that talk about this Servant. I do that because, no matter who is actually this Servant, Jesus embodies the leadership this Servant utilizes. So, I thought that there might be some interest amongst those interested in preparing for the last days, the New Jerusalem, etc. as they’re also often interested to this servant.
It is available right now in Kindle for preorder. But, will be available in paperback also in February.
My Current "Order of Events"
As I read more and see things start to manifest from scriptures, prophecies and visions, I keep adding to my timeline. I have intentionally left off the "years" on this diagram, but you can fill them in as you see fit.
Armageddon (series of battles against Israel) is 1,260 days (3.5 years). When it ends, the Savior will step on the Mt. of Olives and we will not have a night (his light is on the earth) and that will be a sign that Armageddon has ended.
The Savior will have come from AOA to stop Armageddon. Shortly after Armageddon, the Second Coming will happen. This order is found in Ezekiel.
The last president/king/horn/feather, etc., over the NWO will come to power and he is the one who drives the Saints into the wilderness. He is in power for 42 months. The Saints are in the wilderness for 3.5 years. During that time they are protected from the Lord's wrath on the wicked and they are eventually called out to build New Jerusalem. AOA will happen at the end of the wilderness period.
Before the last 3.5 years/42 months/1,260 days there will be two presidents over a mighty nation that help the NWO leader come to power. One of them (president of the U.S.) will lead the nation into war in the isles (Pacific Ocean). Then, he will be found no more. The next president will "die with days" and is called the "raiser in taxes". Look for these two to die closely together.
The last 3 years of tribulation is the Lord's wrath. The years before that are "pre-tribulation" as a woman travaileth.
Call Out Reminders
Call Out Reminders
Isaiah 26: 20 -21
20 Come, my people, enter thou into thy chambers, and shut thy doors about thee: hide thyself as it were for a little moment, until the indignation be overpast.
21 For, behold, the Lord cometh out of his place to punish the inhabitants of the earth for their iniquity: the earth also shall disclose her blood, and shall no more cover her slain.
3 ¶ Strengthen ye the weak hands, and confirm the feeble knees. 4 Say to them that are of a fearful heart, Be strong, fear not: behold, your God will come with vengeance, even God with a recompence; he will come and save you.
64 That the work of the gathering together of my saints may continue, that I may build them up unto my name upon holy places; for the time of harvest is come, and my word must needs be fulfilled.
65 Therefore, I must gather together my people, according to the parable of the wheat and the tares, that the wheat may be secured in the garners to possess eternal life, and be crowned with celestial glory, when I shall come in the kingdom of my Father to reward every man according as his work shall be;
66 While the tares shall be bound in bundles, and their bands made strong, that they may be burned with unquenchable fire.
67 Therefore, a commandment I give unto all the churches, that they shall continue to gather together unto the places which I have appointed.
54 And until that hour there will be foolish virgins among the wise; and at that hour cometh an entire separation of the righteous and the wicked; and in that day will I send mine angels to pluck out the wicked and cast them into unquenchable fire.
1 Gather yourselves together, yea, gather together, O nation not desired;
2 Before the decree bring forth, before the day pass as the chaff, before the fierce anger of the Lord come upon you, before the day of the Lord’s anger come upon you. 3 Seek ye the Lord, all ye meek of the earth, which have wrought his judgment; seek righteousness, seek meekness: it may be ye shall be hid in the day of the Lord’s anger.
Orson Pratt, June 15, 1873, Journal of Discourses, Vol 15, p. 79
We find, in the 40th chapter of the prophecies of Isaiah that the people of Zion are to be raised up preparatory to the second advent of the Son of God. Isaiah uses an exclamation something like this--“O Zion, that bringest good tidings, get thee up into the high mountain.” It seems by this, that the people called Zion, wherever they might be, were to be removed from the regions they originally inhabited, and were to be located in a high mountain, or in a very elevated region. If you wish to know the time which this prophetic exhortation to the people of Zion had reference to, read the whole of the 40th chapter of Isaiah, and you will find that, at that period, the glory of God is to be revealed and all flesh is to see it together, evidently referring to the great day when the Son of God shall come in his glory, when every eye shall see him, and they also who pierced him, and all people, nations and tongues under heaven, who are spared unto that day, shall behold him descend in power and majesty to this earth. In his 40th chapter, the Prophet Isaiah has told us that then the mountains shall be broken down, the valleys exalted, the rough places made smooth, the glory of the Lord revealed and all flesh see it together. Then the iniquities of ancient Israel will have been sufficiently punished, for the Lord will have rewarded them double for all their sins. When that time arrives the people called Zion will be required to go into the high mountains, and they shall bring good tidings unto the inhabitants of the earth.
Heber C Kimball, Life of Heber C. Kimball, p. 450
How is it now? You have the First Presidency, from whom you can get counsel to guide you, and you rely on them. The time will come when they will not be with you. Why? Because they will have to flee and hide up to keep out of the hands of their enemies. You have the Twelve now. You will not always have them, for they too will be hunted and will have to keep out of the way of their enemies. You have other men to whom you look for counsel and advice. Many of them will not be amongst you, for the same reason. You will be left to the light within yourselves. If you don't have it you will not stand; therefore seek for the testimony of Jesus and cleave to it, that when the trying time comes you may not stumble and fall."
Neal A. Maxwell, BYU Speeches September 5, 1982
Furthermore, whether you realize it or not, you are a generation drenched in destiny. If you are faithful, you will prove to be a part of the winding-up scenes for this world, and as participants, not merely as spectators, though on later occasions you might understandably prefer to be the latter. …
Though we have rightly applauded our ancestors for their spiritual achievements (and do not and must not discount them now), those of us who prevail today will have done no small thing. The special spirits who have been reserved to live in this time of challenges and who overcome will one day be praised for their stamina by those who pulled handcarts.
George Q. Cannon, Journal of Discourses, Vol. 26 p. 250
We have these circumstances to contend with. We are mixed with the wicked. The tares and the wheat grow together, and will grow until the harvest. This seems to be designed in the providence of our Father. But the time will come when there will be a separation, a final separation, of the righteous from the wicked, and that separation will be brought about by the exercise of the Priesthood which God has bestowed. That Priesthood will draw up from the earth the pure, the holy, the worthy. It will draw them up to the society of God. Everything that is not pure will be left behind. Then we will feel and know the value of that tie.
Joseph F. Smith, Journal of Discourses, Vol.19, p. 193, September 30, 1877
In various dispensations there are various differences in regard to certain requirements of the Gospel. For instance, in the day of Noah, when he preached the Gospel to the antediluvian world, he was given a special commandment, to build an ark, that in case the people would reject him and the message sent unto them, that himself and all who believed on him might be saved from the destruction that awaited them. In this dispensation there is a principle or commandment peculiar to it. What is that? It is the gathering the people unto one place. The gathering of this people is as necessary to be observed by believers, as faith, repentance, baptism, or any other ordinance. It is an essential part of the Gospel of this dispensation, as much so, as the necessity of building an ark by Noah, for his deliverance, was a part of the Gospel of his dispensation. Then the world was destroyed by a flood, now it is to be destroyed by war, pestilence, famine, earthquakes, storms, and tempests, the sea rolling beyond its bounds, malarious vapors, vermin, disease, and by fire and the lightnings of God's wrath poured out for destruction upon Babylon. The cry of the angel unto the righteous of this dispensation is, "Come out of her O my people, that ye partake not of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues."
Bishop Koyle - REFUGES AND TENT CITIES:
The nation was in a sad state of famine, mobocracy and chaos exactly as seen and prophesied by the Prophet Joseph Smith. Entire states would be depopulated, with not enough living to bury the dead. This in turn would cause a great influx of tens of thousands of refugees, consisting mostly of women and children, looking for food and safety until there were more people living in tents than in houses in the valleys of Utah. The Bishop also said that two out of every three would die or be killed when the judgments of God came, and this would be true all around the entire world.
Harold B. Lee Conference Report, April 1948
Thus, clearly, the Lord has placed the responsibility for directing the work of gathering in the hands of the leaders of the Church to whom he will reveal his will where and when such gatherings would take place in the future.
It would be well before the frightening events concerning the fulfillment of all God's promises and predictions are upon us, that the Saints in every land prepare themselves and look forward to the instruction that shall come to them from the First Presidency of this Church as to where they shall be gathered and not be disturbed in their feelings until such instruction is given to them as it is revealed by the Lord to the proper authority.
Heber C. Kimball, August 2, 1857, Journal of Discourses, Vol. 5, p. 134
A great many suppose that when they get there they will be perfectly safe. You will, if you keep the commandments of God; but if you cannot learn to keep the commandments of God in Great Salt Lake City, how can you learn to keep them when you have to flee to the mountains? And if you cannot keep them here, how do you expect to keep them in Jackson County?
Orson Pratt, Journal of Discourses, Vol. 18, p 67 July 25, 1875
Read the fortieth chapter of Isaiah, where he speaks of the glory of the Lord being revealed, and all flesh to see him when he comes the second time and how the mountains and hills should be lowered and the valleys be exalted; and in the same chapter the Prophet also says that, before that great and terrible day of the Lord, Zion is required to get up into the high mountains. Isaiah predicts this. Says he, in his fortieth chapter—"Oh Zion, thou that bringest good tidings, get thee up into the high mountains."
Thus you see that the people who organize Zion through the everlasting Gospel which the angel brings, have good tidings to declare to all the inhabitants of the earth. But these people are required, according to this prophecy, to get up into the high mountains.
Brigham Young, Journal of Discourses, Vol. 3, p. 153, May 6, 1855
It would be pleasing if all the Saints had strong faith and confidence, but sometimes many seem to falter in their feelings. I do not know how many I might find in this congregation who would have faith enough to believe that we could live on the tops of these high mountains, which are 6, 619 feet higher than the Temple Block, in case we’re called to go up there and live, and there was no other place for us; I do not know whether a great many in this congregation could have faith to believe that we could live there.
Joseph Smith, Documentary History of the Church, Vol. 1
Verily, Verily, saith the Lord, your Redeemer, even Jesus Christ... Verily, I say unto you, that the day of vexation and vengeance is nigh at the doors of this nation, when wicked, ungodly, and daring men will rise up in wrath and might, and go forth in anger, like as the dust is driven by a terrible wind; and they will be the means of the destruction of the government and cause the death and misery of many souls; but the faithful among my people shall be preserved in holy places during all these tribulations.

Heber C. Kimball
After a while the Gentiles will gather by the thousands to this place, and Salt Lake City will be classed among the wicked cities of the world. A spirit of speculation and extravagance will take possession of the Saints, and the results will be financial bondage.
Persecution comes next and all true Latter-day Saints will be tested to the limit. Many will apostatize and others will be still, not knowing what to do. Darkness will cover the earth and gross darkness the minds of the people. The judgments of God will be poured out on the wicked to the extent that our Elders from far and near will be called home, or in other words the gospel will be taken from the Gentiles and later on carried to the Jews.
The western boundary of the State of Missouri will be swept so clean of its inhabitants that as President Young tells us, when you return to that place, there will not be left so much as a yellow dog to wag his tail.
Before that day comes, however, the Saints will be put to a test that will try the integrity of the best of them. The pressure will become so great that the more righteous among them will cry unto the Lord day and night until deliverance comes.

Samuel Whitney Richards, March 1846
I went to my Seventies Quorum meeting in the Nauvoo Temple. The whole quorum being present consisting of fifteen members. ... Dressing ourselves in the order of the Priesthood we called upon the Lord, his spirit attended us, and the visions were opened to our view. I was, as it were, lost to myself and beheld the earth reel to and fro and was moved out of its place. Men fell to the earth and their life departed from them. ... And great was the scene of destruction upon all the face of the land, and at the close thereof, there appeared a great company as it were of saints coming from the west, as I stood with my back passing to the east and the scripture was fulfilled which saith, "Come; see the desolation which the Lord hath made in the earth;" and the company of saints who had been hid as it were, from the earth; and I beheld other things which were glorious while the power of God rested down upon me. Others also beheld angels and the glory of God. ... The sacrament was administered. Our joy increased by the gift of tongues and prophecy by which great things were spoken and made known to us.
Sarah Menet, There is No Death
As I looked upon this scene of chaos, smoke, and destruction, I noticed there were small pockets of light scattered over the US, perhaps 20 or 30 of them. I noticed that most of the locations of light were in the western part of the US with only three of four of them being in the East. These places of light seemed to shine brightly through the darkness and were such a contrast to the rest of the scene that they caught my full attention. I focused on them for a moment and asked, "What is this light?"
I was then able to see these points of light were people who had gathered together and were kneeling in prayer. The light was actually coming from the people, and I understood that it was showing forth their goodness and love for each other. They had gathered together for safety and contrary to what I had witnessed elsewhere, were caring more for each other than for themselves. Some of the groups were small with only a hundred people or so. Other groups consisted of what seemed to be thousands.
I realized that many, if not all, of these places of light, or "cities of light" had somehow been established just before the biological attack and they were very organized. In these places were relative peace and safety. I noticed the gangs made no threats on these groups. However, the people within had defenses and God was with them.
The Cardston Prophecy (excerpt), Cardston, Canada Temple, 1923
I saw further on, instructions given whereby places of refuge prepared quietly but efficiently by inspired elders. I saw Cardston and the surrounding foothills, especially north and west for miles, being prepared for your people quietly but quickly. I saw the fuel resources of the district develop in many places and vast piles of coal and timber stored for future use and building. I saw the territory carefully surveyed and mapped out, for the camping of a great body of the people of the church. I saw provisions also made for a big influx of people who will not at first belong to the church, but who will gather in their tribulation. I saw these things going on practically unknown to the Gentile world.
I saw the inspired call sent forth to all the church, to gather to the refuges of Zion. I saw the stream of your people quietly moving in the direction of their refuge. I saw your people moving more quickly in larger numbers until all the stragglers were housed. I saw the wireless message flashed from Zion's refuge to Zion's refuge in their several places that all was well with them, and then the darkness of chaos closed around the boundaries of your people, and the last days of tribulation had begun.
Anonymous (Dreams & Visions, Vol. II p.124)
I would note that during this part of the dream, when we initially left, there was no sense of panic or urgency. We were hurrying to get going because we didn't want to be left behind. Also, I was told that some people were asked to go, but didn't want to. From this I infer that the conditions of the US, were so based as to make it an easy decision as whether to stay or leave.
(p. 130) We were told in church to go to a meeting at the Stake House that afternoon if we had our food storage. I remember more about the meeting and packing than any other part of the dream. There was turmoil in the world, but life was still pretty normal, though prices were high and there was a fear of the future. Some of the members with food storage thought it was about putting our things in a common pot. Some of them chose not to go to the meeting because they didn't feel they should have to share what they had accumulated. Other people were teasing them about having to give all of it up and share it with those who hadn't prepared.
At the meeting, I remember being concerned about my kids on missions. At the time we had two missionaries out, and were told they would come to the place we were going, so not to worry about them. A semi truck came late that night, at an appointed hour. They backed up and the door of it was a as close as it could get. It was so close you couldn't see from the road that things were being loaded into the truck. There were quite a few men, none of whom I recognized, who loaded the food storage up (the hour was in the wee hours of the morning, so people around us would not see a semi was taking things from our house). Somehow the food and other items were known that it was ours. I don't know how, but when we arrived at the place we got it back.
Patriarch Charles D. Evans, LDS Church Archives
My vision now became extended in a marvelous manner, and the import of the past labors of the Elders was made plain to me. I saw multitudes fleeing to the place of safety in our mountain heights. The church was established in the wilderness.
Visions of Glory, p. 163
“I was aware that there were other gathering places like this throughout the United States, Europe, South America, and anywhere the stakes of Zion had been fully organized prior to the earthquakes.”
Dream of Plagues Excerpt (1884)
“Below this picture (poison falling from the sky) was the description: ‘A camp of the Saints who have gathered together and are living under the daily revelations of God, and are thus preserved from the plague.’
I understood from this that each family was in its tent during the hours of the day that the poison falls, and thus were preserved from breathing the deathly particles.”
Updated "The 8th King" Document
For your records.
I removed the references to Anti-Christ and replaced with the 8th King (as the scriptures do not support calling the 8th King/President/New World Order leader the Anti-Christ). He is an anti-Christ (little a) as someone or something that goes against Christ or the gospel (as per John), but the only person given the title with a big A is Korihor. Even then, if you go to the Topical Guide it says The Anti-Christ is the Devil.
I updated the page number (52) with the descriptions of the 8th King so you can see them all in once place and decide for yourself who this 8th King/president might be.
The best clue is that when the 7th king/president, the "raiser in taxes" (Daniel 11) is killed with in days, then #8 arises. Don't be deceived! Especially if it is the president you wanted to return shows up! If he #8, he is the one who makes war with the Saints.
Keep in mind, #8 is the last president when the Savior comes for the Second Coming. He gets 42 months of power. We are soooo close to him coming in.
November 02nd, 2022
After I released my experience at church, I frantically typed up what I could remember, and for many that created more questions than answers, so I cleaned it up so it can make more sense.
The file at the end has the chart for printing a larger chart.
Notes: No where in the scriptures does it say there is a 7 year tribulation, EXCEPT Dan 9:24 talks about a Seventy Weeks dream where 1 week = 7 years.
The "last week" aka 7 years is a time of trouble.
I built previous timelines on the Jewis 3rd temple and the calculations from Daniel. I have since been corrected and through footnotes and a spiritual experience to know
this is not about a Jewish temple, but an LDS temple.This will condense the previous timeline from 2023.5 starting the last 7 years, to 2020 starting the last 7 years.
We are no longer waiting for the 3rd Jewish temple to be announce or built.
The Daniel 11:22 verse is talking about the prophet on the earth - that is an LDS prophet! Verse 31 says "daily sacrifice" - J.S. said that is our temple worship.
Dan 11:30 says the 8th king has intelligence with those who have forsaken the holy covenant. That's the current apostates! Jews don't have apostates because they do not have those who have denounced their membership after being endowed. The 8th king has no control over the people of Israel, just the U.S. which is where the bulk of the Saints reside.
In Dan 11:35 Many will be tried and made white. The footnote for try is the Zech 13:9 where he calls them "my people". This is the LDS Saints.
Dan. 11:17-19, two kings (presidents) before the 8th king comes into power. Die within days of each other. That is a clue as to who #8 is and don't trust this king/president who used to be one of the previous seven presidents! (Rev 17:10)
The Last Half of the Last Inning
The I stand corrected. I had the most amazing experience today.
Have you ever found yourself praying and asking for something that you weren’t even thinking about?
I was praying just before leaving for church this morning and I sputtered the words, “Please bless me to hear the Holy Ghost today while in church.”
Sacrament was over and I didn’t hear anything. It was a 5th Sunday and sometimes we don’t stay if it is a topic we not associated. Today we almost left when we heard it was about the “For the Strength of the Youth” and other youth related topics. Then, our wonderful bishop stood up and announced he had just been in a meeting with 2 general authorities who were helping the local leaders understand from the prophet how we can better prepare for the Second Coming.
As he spoke the words, a physical feeling came through my body like a piercing of light. I started to receive a download of information. I rummaged through my purse so I could write down these things from the Holy Ghost and not forget any of them.
The bishop sat down to wait his turn towards the end to tell us the wonderful things he learned. In the meantime I was writing furiously and looking up scriptures to verify the meaning of the things I received. I was being corrected on the document “The Last Inning” I just put out two days ago.
First, the prophet said the second half of the last inning. I was to understand that the last inning is the 7 years of tribulation and we have already gone through half! That means in 2023.5 we will begin the second half of the tribulation and that ends with the Second Coming (2027)!
Second, I was told the prophet called a solemn assembly to declare the day of the Lord is at hand. That was the declaration of the last 7 years before His coming. (Joel 1:14)
I started to question the Holy Ghost about the following scriptures and the interpretation (which is what led me to believe we were still in the pre-trib column because the 3rd Jerusalem temple has not been announced yet to start the “week” (7 years). He responded:
(Third) the changes in the temple in 2019 were a fulfillment Daniel 9:27 “he shall confirm the covenant with many”….”and half way through the week (last 7 years)”….”the daily sacrifice will be taken away (temple closed)” …for the overspreading of abominations (death and destruction) he shall it desolate (footnote is desolation of abomination which awaits the wicked) until the consummation (consummation is the final destruction before the Second Coming). It is an LDS temple, not a Jewish temple during Daniel’s time.
Fourth, the beastly system is more than just the New World Order. Those dressed in purple and scarlet at the 2020 inauguration are the woman who is the city (D.C.) (see Rev 17:10) and in Rev 17:4 the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet coulour …full of abominations and filthiness….. The woman rides the beast. The beast will have a mouth (leader) to reign for 42 months. That 42 months is the last of the 3.5 years of tribulation. (Not the first 3.5 as I put on my chart.)
It is this mouth (leader) that will drive the Saints into the wilderness experience. When they come out, New Jerusalem will have already been started, the 144k will have been ordained (the wedding feast) and AOA will be at the end of that 3.5 years. Once AOA has happened, the Lord will take his 144k and go to Jerusalem and put an end to Armageddon. Once that has happened, the Second Coming will happen. That means we should hear of Armageddon starting around 2023.5 as that is the beginning of the last 3.5 years. Rev. 11 says the two prophets will hold off the world’s army for 1,260 days.
I received a message that the High Priest groups in the church were absorbed into the Elder’s quorum to make accommodation for the 144k who are all to be high priests and priestess.
I asked about Daniel 11 (verse 31) where the 8th king (mouth) will come with military to pollute the temple and take away the daily sacrifice (J.S. told us daily sacrifice means temple work) and was this for the LDS temple or the Jews 3rd temple in Jerusalem? He said it is reference to the LDS temple as prior to the event, (verse 22) the 8th king (mouth) will also break the prince of the covenant (that is the prophet on the earth at the time). I also heard the expression “to try them, and to purge them and to make them white, even to the time of the end” is in reference to the 144k (LDS) AND the footnote to “try” is Zech 13:9 which is the third part being refined and the Lord calls them “my people”. It is an LDS temple.
The bishop stood up again and repeated his remarks we are to prepare for the Second Coming. He shared that of course we will have to go through some tough things, but he strongly feels we can make it if we do what the prophet is telling us. That piercing feeling came over me again. We are much closer than I previously thought.
It all makes sense now. The rapid advancement of destructive events are starting to play out. Elder Bednar's talk in conference about the wedding feast. Ignore the things of the world. We need to get to the temple often as President Nelson implored us. Timing is running out.
The Bottom of the Last Inning
For those who still are not sure the Second Coming, or should I say 7 years of Tribulation, is around the corner, listen to President Nelson’s comments we are in the last half of the 9th Inning:
Use this table of events with the descriptions below. There is a larger table on the last bottom page for printing.
How do we know there is a 7 year tribulation period?
Nowhere in the scriptures does it say a 7 year tribulation. However, according to Daniel, in his 70 weeks prophecy he gave us the clue that when he said “week” (7 days), he was disguising it to mean 7 years. He predicted the Savior would be crucified in 483 years from his time by calling it 70 weeks.
Daniel 9:24 Seventy weeks are determined upon thy people and upon thy holy city, to finish the transgression, and to make an end of sins, and to make reconciliation for iniquity, and to bring in everlasting righteousness, and to seal up the vision and prophecy, and to anoint the most Holy.
Daniel 9:25 Know therefore and understand, that from the going forth of the commandment to restore and to build Jerusalem unto the Messiah the Prince shall be seven weeks, and threescore and two weeks: the street shall be built again, and the wall, even in troublous times.
Daniel 9:26 continues with a prediction that, after the Messiah is killed and the people of the prince that shall come shall destroy the city and the sanctuary… This was fulfilled with the destruction of Jerusalem in A.D. 70.
Of the 70 “sevens,” 69 have been fulfilled in history. This leaves one more “seven” yet to be fulfilled. This will happen during a 7 year tribulation that ends with the Second Coming. Verse 27 tells us:
Daniel 9:27 And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week: and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate.
During the last week (7 years), the 3rd temple will be closed for 3.5 years after it is built and will remain closed for the last 3.5 years because of the spreading of abominations (Armageddon) which is 1,260 days long) and it will be desolate until the end (consummation) is complete.
How do we know when this 7 years starts? See #1 on timeline chart
It starts when the New World Order Beast is in power. That is the first 3.5 years. When, as the vials of wrath are being poured to destroy the Beast, the people start Armageddon which is the second 3.5 years in duration. Revelation 16:12-16
The first vial of sores is upon those who had the mark of the beast. The 5th vial is upon the seat of the beast and it is the 6th vial that is the water in the Euphrates is dried up to allow the kings of the east to enter a place called Armageddon (valley of Megiddo near Jerusalem). Revelation 16:12, 16. The wrath ends when the beast, the false prophet and their followers are thrown into the lake of fire and brimstone (Rev 19:20)
We know the Mark of the Beast was introduced by the Beast and the False Prophet in Revelation 13. The beast came out of the sea (many nations) with 7 heads and 10 horns with crowns. It would be Daniel, John and Nephi that tells us that this is an oppressive world-wide government that will rule and cause many to take the mark in order to buy, sell or trade. This is the New World Order. John tells us this “king/leader/mouth” for the NWO was a previous president. (Rev. 17:11)
When this NWO is in power for 42 mo. (Rev: 13:5) this is your first 3.5 years of the tribulation.
This mouth/leader of the NWO is also who stops the Jerusalem 3rd temple (Dan. 11:31)
Rev 11 tells us Armageddon is 1,260 days (3.5 years) that two prophets will hold off the world’s army. This is the last 3.5 year period. These are the two 3.5 year timeframes for a total of 7 years of tribulation.
How will we know when the leader of the New World Order is in power? See #2 on chart.
In Daniel 11, the heading says “successive wars that lead to the second coming”. If you jump to the end of the chapter you can see the descriptions of the last three kings/presidents before the Second Coming.
Daniel 7:9 tells us these kings are in a country that “Adam the Ancient” comes to. That is Adam-ondi-Ahman and without Joseph Smith we would not know for sure what country these presidents came from. Daniel also says this country is the land the Saints will possess forever and ever (New Jerusalem) Dan. 7:18. Again, thanks to modern day revelation, we can rest assured that America is the 4th beast nation. The leaders (presidents) will rise in succession, and will carry the title, “King of the North” as each skirmish or war is described.
Since John the Revelator talks about this leader of the NWO, let’s use his numbering these presidents the last 8 kings. (Rev 17:11).
The last three descriptions in Daniel 11 start at verse 17. This would be president #6. He is given daughters of women (pedophile) and he will take the country to war in the Isles (WWIII), then he will be found no more. He does not finish his term. (Note: The Cardston Prophecy in the church archives and David Warwick both saw WWIII start in the Pacific Ocean with China and N. Korea being involved.)
Then the next president is called the raiser in taxes. This is president #7. He also “dies within days”. This looks like a possible assassination. Shortly after he dies, #8 who is the leader of the NWO, arises for 42 months (3.5 years). Then when the wrath comes, he starts Armageddon instead. Another 3.5 years.
Daniel says #8 is not given the honor (elected), but comes in by flatteries. He is also met with a flood of arms (a war, a civil war). His kingdom is small and full of trouble (half the country will not support this returning president. Then he makes a pact with the league (NWO) and he gives away the countries riches (reparations?)
Then he makes war with the Saints and drives them into the wilderness. Dan. 7:21 (check the footnote, takes you to Rev 12 when the woman is driven into the wilderness for time, times and half time, 3.5 years). This is the same little horn that stops the 3rd temple after 3.5 years of its announcement.
Daniel saw this “little horn” back in Chapter 8. He has a stout face and a fierce countenance and he is diverse from the other presidents.
He too will “plant his tabernacle” in Jerusalem and run back to America because of tidings out of the north (Russia) and east (China) – most likely the start of invasion in America and then he too will be found no more. (Joseph Smith was quoted as saying the next great trouble in America will be the dollar devaluation. It will lead to a Civil War, and we will be so weakened by it, foreign countries will invade.)
After this king/leader/president, the nation will wander in chaos with no supreme government as New Jerusalem is being enlarged. The 144k are bring in people from all over the world, the 10 Tribes have shown up to help rid the land of gangs and invasion from foreign troops. The City of Enoch has returned to help build New Jerusalem and the Saints are protected from the wrath.
Are there any other prophecies or visions about this time of trouble, a 7 year tribulation?
Matthew 24:37 tells us as in the days of Noe (Noah) people will miss the signs of the Second Coming. (The NWO will be so seductive, you won’t awaken to the sudden destruction that awaits.) 1Thess 5:3
Yet, Matt 24:21 there shall be a great tribulation (like never before), and except those days be shortened, no flesh will be saved.
Bishop Koyle saw there was a 7 year famine ending when the Savior returns. The first three years the Saints do well because they have food storage. Years 4 and 5 many die because they forgot to store up again. Year 6 looks promising as crops will grow again, but will stop short of producing. Year 7 everything will be fine again. (We are walking into major food shortages and fuel shortages that will stop farms from producing enough to feed everyone for years to come.)
When the 3rd temple in Jerusalem is announced, know you are 7 years away from the Second Coming!
What are some of the events that take place before the 7 year Tribulation period?
The scriptures only give a general description of these events. When the gospel is taken from the Gentiles (us) and taken to the Jews, the Lord will preach his own sermons of earthquakes and tsunamis. There will be great persecution towards the church and the nation will have rejected the gospel.
There will be wars and rumors of wars. This is going on right now.
False Christs will arise. Remember, the Savior comes in the clouds from the east.
There will be famines, pestilence, revolutions in all nations – these are the beginning of sorrows (pre-tribulation). We can see famine on the horizon. Too many food shortages happening now.
Many shall betray one another, be offended and hate one another. Iniquity shall abound, love will wax cold. This is the nightly news.
Since we know that the tribulation starts with the New World Order coming into power, we learn from Daniel that there are kings (presidents) that lead up to this last king. Scroll up to see #6, #7 and #8 presidents and the descriptions he gave us we can look for.
Bishop Koyle saw in vision that the Republicans will take back the Congress and will try to fix the runaway inflation. He said it was to no avail because the people would not repent. Instead, overnight, everything came crashing down and a civil war ensued. At the same time the papers showed a Republican president was assassinated. This could have been a previous one as we do not have a Republican president in office now. This could be #7 who will die within a few days. There are multiple theories.
We have multiple references and visions to a civil war. Joseph Smith said the next great trouble will be the dollar devaluation (inflation) that will cause a civil war, we would be so weakened by it we will be invaded by foreign countries.
When does the Savior Come to His Saints before the Second Coming? See #3 on Chart
The Saints are driven into the wilderness by the 8th King/president, who is the NWO leader. (Rev. 12, Daniel 8:21) This is what many refer to as a Call Out.
Then the Saints are protected before the wrath that occurs to the wicked at the end of the first 3.5 years. Sometime during that wilderness experience Saints who are worthy will be given translated bodies, join the Church of the Firstborn, and many of them will become part of the 144k.
What Is the Significance of the Angel from the East Sealing the Servants of God?
The four angels who are given power over the earth are kept from sending forth desolations upon the earth until God’s servants are sealed in their foreheads. The Prophet Joseph Smith taught that this sealing “signifies sealing the blessing upon their heads, meaning the everlasting covenant, thereby making their calling and election sure” (Teachings, p. 321).
Who Are the 144,000?
“Before the Lord shall come … there is to be a great work among the nations. … The ten tribes will have to come forth and come to this land, to be crowned with glory in the midst of Zion by the hands of the servants of God, even the Children of Ephraim; and twelve thousand High Priests will be elected from each of these ten tribes, as well as from the scattered tribes, and sealed in their foreheads, and will be ordained and receive power to gather out of all nations, kindreds, tongues and people as many as will come unto the general assemblage of the Church of the first-born.” (Orson Pratt, in Journal of Discourses, 16:325.)
Elder Orson Pratt gave this additional explanation:
“When the Temple is built [in the New Jerusalem] the sons of the two Priesthoods [Melchizedek and Aaronic] … will enter into that Temple … and all of them who are pure in heart will behold the face of the Lord and that too before he comes in his glory in the clouds of heaven, for he will suddenly come to his Temple, and he will purify the sons of Moses and of Aaron, until they shall be prepared to offer in that Temple an offering that shall be acceptable in the sight of the Lord. In doing this, he will purify not only the minds of the Priesthood in that Temple, but he will purify their bodies until they shall be quickened, and renewed and strengthened, and they will be partially changed, not to immortality, but changed in part that they can be filled with the power of God, and they can stand in the presence of Jesus, and behold his face in the midst of that Temple.
“This will prepare them for further ministrations among the nations of the earth, it will prepare them to go forth in the days of tribulation and vengeance upon the nations of the wicked, when God will smite them with pestilence, plague and earthquake, such as former generations never knew. Then the servants of God will need to be armed with the power of God, they will need to have that sealing blessing pronounced upon their foreheads that they can stand forth in the midst of these desolations and plagues and not be overcome by them. When John the Revelator describes this scene he says he saw four angels sent forth, ready to hold the four winds that should blow from the four quarters of heaven. Another angel ascended from the east and cried to the four angels, and said, ‘Smite not the earth now, but wait a little while.’ ‘How long?’ ‘Until the servants of our God are sealed in their foreheads.’ What for? To prepare them to stand forth in the midst of these desolations and plagues, and not be overcome. When they are prepared, when they have received a renewal of their bodies in the Lord’s temple, and have been filled with the Holy Ghost and purified as gold and silver in a furnace of fire, then they will be prepared to stand before the nations of the earth and preach glad tidings of salvation in the midst of judgments that are to come like a whirlwind upon the wicked.” (In Journal of Discourses, 15:365–66.)

6TH Seal (we are in) Revelation 6
Still need to happen: Earthquake, sun black, moon as blood, stars fall, heaven departs as a scroll and every mountain moved out of place, the leaders/kings will hid in the rocks of the mountains, for the DAY OF HIS WRATH is come. BUT….
Note the heading of the Revelation 7
John also sees in the sixth seal the Restoration of the gospel, the sealing of the 144,000, and the hosts of the exalted from all nations. (This sealing of the 144k is the wedding feast!)
This is what Elder Bednar’s talk was all about!!
“As we appropriately seek for the spiritual gift of eyes to see and ears to hear, I promise that we will be blessed with the capacity and judgment to strengthen our covenant connection with the living Lord. We also will receive the power of godliness in our lives – and ultimately be both called to and chosen for the Lord’s feast.
Notice the feast comes before the 7th seal!
7th Seal (opens with the destruction of the wicked) Revelation 8
Notice the heading:
John sees fire and desolation poured out during the seventh seal and preceding the Second Coming.
We haven’t seen that yet!
Notice Verse 1: When he opened the 7th seal, there was a silence in heaven.
Then the 7 trumpets start: famine, mountain burning (nuke) in the sea, star (comet) fell, sun/moon/stars smitten, then the 3 woes. The three woes are 5 mo. War, 13 mo. War, and then final destruction of the wicked.
WE ARE PROTECTED, WE HAVE THE SEAL OF GOD (TRANSLATION) BEFORE THIS. Continue to get your spiritual lives in order and strengthened to be a part of this!
