The great day of the LORD is near, it is near, and hasteth greatly
Zion, June 9, 2011
Hearken and Lo, this is the voice as of one sent down from high who is mighty and powerful, whose voice is unto all men and whose goings are to the ends of the earth. Hearken and lo, for the great day of the Lord is nigh at hand and it hastens greatly. Hear the voice of the day of the Lord as of one crying repentance in the wilderness, and whose cry is unto all men saying:
"Behold, that which you hear is as the voice of one crying in the wilderness—in the wilderness, because you cannot see him—my voice, because my voice is Spirit; my Spirit is truth; truth abideth and hath no end; and if it be in you it shall abound."
(Doctrine and Covenants Section 88:66)
Therefore, repent ye repent ye, for the great day of the Lord is night at hand. Repent ye, repent, ye and make the path of the Lord Straight. Repent ye, repent ye, for the ax is laid at the root of every tree and every tree that does not produce good fruits, will be hewn down and cast into the fire from whence no traveler returns. For if the Lord did not spare his own house that was like a tender plant unto him and burned it, what can we expect when the fire approaches the dry wood?
Again I admonish you and exhort you to repent and amend your ways. Therefore, repent ye, repent ye and come unto me and be baptized in my name that ye may be sanctified by the reception of the Holy Ghost so that you may be found spotless before me at the last day. For verily I say unto you that this is the everlasting gospel which I the father of heaven and earth have caused you to be given to you at this hour in these latter days in the church of Jesus Christ. And whosoever preaches more or less than this cometh of evil. And you know the things that you need to do in my church, for that which you have seen me do, ye shall also do. And if you come not unto to me and be baptized in my church you will be condemned. And you must face the wrath of God which shall be poured out without measure upon all the inhabitants of the earth. This is my standing and resolute witness unto you oh, inhabitants of the earth.
“And it shall come to pass in that day, saith the LORD, that there shall be the noise of a cry from the fish gate, and an howling from the second, and a great crashing from the hills. Howl, ye inhabitants of Maktesh, for all the merchant people are cut down; all they that bear silver are cut off. And it shall come to pass at that time, that I will search JerUSAlem with candles, and punish the men that are settled on their lees: that say in their heart, The LORD will not do good, neither will he do evil. Therefore their goods shall become a booty, and their houses a desolation: they shall also build houses, but not inhabit them; and they shall plant vineyards, but not drink the wine thereof.
The great day of the LORD is near, it is near, and hasteth greatly, even the voice of the day of the LORD: the mighty man shall cry there bitterly. That day is a day of wrath, a day of trouble and distress, a day of wasteness and desolation, a day of darkness and gloominess, a day of clouds and thick darkness, A day of the trumpet and alarm against the fenced cities, and against the high towers. And I will bring distress upon men, that they shall walk like blind men, because they have sinned against the LORD: and their blood shall be poured out as dust, and their flesh as the dung. Neither their silver nor their gold shall be able to deliver them in the day of the LORD's wrath; but the whole land shall be devoured by the fire of his jealousy: for he shall make even a speedy riddance of all them that dwell in the land.”
(Old Testament Zephaniah 1:10 - 18)
"For not many days hence and the earth shall tremble and reel to and fro as a drunken man; and the sun shall hide his face, and shall refuse to give light; and the moon shall be bathed in blood; and the stars shall become exceedingly angry, and shall cast themselves down as a fig that falleth from off a fig–tree. And after your testimony cometh wrath and indignation upon the people. For after your testimony cometh the testimony of earthquakes, that shall cause groanings in the midst of her, and men shall fall upon the ground and shall not be able to stand. And also cometh the testimony of the voice of thunderings, and the voice of lightnings, and the voice of tempests, and the voice of the waves of the sea heaving themselves beyond their bounds. And all things shall be in commotion; and surely, men's hearts shall fail them; for fear shall come upon all people."
(Doctrine and Covenants Section 88:87 - 91)
“Can two walk together, except they be agreed? Will a lion roar in the forest, when he hath no prey? will a young lion cry out of his den, if he have taken nothing? Can a bird fall in a snare upon the earth, where no gin is for him? shall one take up a snare from the earth, and have taken nothing at all. Shall a trumpet be blown in the city, and the people not be afraid? shall there be evil in a city, and the LORD hath not known it? Surely the Lord GOD will do nothing, but he revealeth his secret unto his servants the prophets. The lion hath roared, who will not fear? the Lord GOD hath spoken, who can but prophesy?”
(Old Testament Amos 3:3 - 8)
I reveal these things to you beforehand because of your prayers. Therefore, treasure up wisdom in your hearts, peradventure you come to know of these things by the wickedness of men in a manner that shall speak in your ears with a voice louder that that which shall shake the earth. But as the Lord has comforted and said to us that if we are prepared, we shall not fear.
The voice of the day of the Lord
