A thought crossed my mind just now: The Last days – The.End.Of.The.World – take a minute and think about that.
- All the last days prophecies in the scriptures from the time of human beginnings to now are being realized! (Prophecies from thousands of years ago – said by Isaiah, Nephi, Old Testament Prophets, Jesus Christ and Prophets in the New Testament, as well as prophecies from hundreds of years ago are being fulfilled NOW!!!) Living at this time is incredible!! The notion of ushering in the Second Coming of Christ is surreal because seeing it never occurred to me. The idea of switching gears to ‘be and do’ after living my entire life in a state of preparation but never thinking that I’d actually see the end is amazing … astounding … reality hasn’t hit me.
- The things I do to live and the entertainment I enjoy seem so trivial and small when compared to eternity. It’s not even a choice but more like obvious that I’d work on what matters in God’s realm. Of course I do what it takes to live my life but I also choose working on strengthening my character to be like God and the Savior.
The scriptures tell about the Lord’s people in the last days and those prophecies give me focus, inspiration, courage and endurance. I want to be numbered among the Lord’s people and live my life each day with that goal in mind. The reality of the Lord’s Second Coming stirs many emotions within me. The idea that perhaps I’ll see the heavens roll back like a scroll and witness Jesus Christ descending in all his glory strikes me with awe. Living at this time fills my heart with gratitude.
