And it shall come to pass that he that feareth me shall be looking forth for the great day of the Lord to come, even for the signs of the coming of the Son of Man........................... and he that watches not for me shall be cut off. (D&C 45:39...44)

Introduction:

I welcome you to The LDS Second Coming of Christ Research Group. This group started in the early 90's as a small email group, which expanded to include a WEB site in 1996 to track the ideas of the group.  The group then moved to Egroups and then to its current home on Yahoo.

The key events, listed on this site, comprise a list of what will be the greatest work that this world has seen, second only to the great atoning sacrifice of Christ. These events will also lead to the greatest time of mankind, one which mankind has only caught glimpses of, like the city of
Enoch and the people just after the visit of Christ to the Americas, the Millennium.

This group continues to develop a template, using the LDS scriptures, for use with all Last-Days prophecies. Many of the prophecies of the last days are not chronological and simply list a group of events that must take place prior to the second coming, others list events surrounding the Second Coming both before and after Christ's return . Although key concepts and ideas are coming together much is left to do.
I am asking for the assistance of LDS members who have a firm interest in this project, to all who see this as an important event in the quest of life.

If you want to join the discussion group or if you have additional key events or corrections to the sequence, please send your information to clint@clint-gray.com

Thanks. Clint Gray

Importance of the Work

From this project  I hope to install in  every member of the church (even members of other Christian religions) a revived desire to earnestly study the second coming of Christ.  I have come to understand why individuals outside of the church have limited the importance of this topic, based on a false understanding of what they call the "Rapture", but I hope to remove some of the misunderstandings within members of the church concerning the need to more fully study this important event.  Most of the lack of interest however I believe comes from a misunderstanding of statements from modern prophets in the last two decades. .....

The Key Events

This section is a listing of key events leading up to the last days and through the second coming.  This section will be a snapshot in time of this ongoing living event list.

The events are listed in chronological order.  Many of the events may not be in their proper place and might need to be moved, thus the living nature of the list.  As I have built this last days mosaic I have adjusted the pieces of the puzzle to try and arrive at a complete picture, that will include all prophecies, but have yet to arrive at a final solution.

I have attempted to keep my own personal thoughts out of this section, I tried to include only items pertinent to the event itself, however some events do not permit this approach and need further clarification thus my comments are included in some locations.  For the most part my own views have been reserved for the section of this work dealing with that topic.  As a study group resource I would also like to see others views included.  I request from anyone that is willing to share their own interpretation of the full set of events to provide me with their own view so that  they can also be included.

Many of the key events are simply listed with scriptural references, while others have other references and comments as required.  The reason for the additional references or comments are to help properly identify what the event is or clarify where in the list they belong.  Some events require no further clarification since they are well understood or are not debated.

With that in mind let's start the list.

We must first understand the foundation for the work in the last days a period known as the Dispensation of the Fullness of Times.
 
 

The Dispensation of the fulness of times

 

Gospel restored  and the Gathering of the remnant of the House of Israel commences.
Future preperatory events

 

Additional sacred writings are yet to come forth,

 

Gospel preached to all nations of the world then
Missionaries called home:
Times of the Gentiles fulfilled:

Polarization events

 

Now we start into the polarization phase events themselves. Each event should have a clear starting or finishing point that can be assigned.  The event may not be quite so final in and of itself however, the event will produce a polarizing affect on individuals or groups. No longer will one be able to sit astride the fence, or go off and play in the forest while the train slowly lumbers on, as it was put in general conference. (Spiritual Revival, Glenn L. Pace; October 1992)

Antichrist starts his reign with the “abomination of desolation” (Matthew 24:15)

 

 

Abomination of Desolation:
Battle of Armageddon (Gog & Magog) 3 1/2 year RELIGIOUS war: ( Start of)  : Ezek 38, Joel 3, Zech 14, Rev 16:16

 

 

 

Armageddon: The Setting
According to the prophets, some important events must take place before the battle actually begins:
1.    The house of Israel will be gathered from among the heathen (the Gentiles) and returned to their own land (see Ezekiel 36:24; 37:21).
2.    The land of Israel will be rebuilt and reinhabited by the covenant people (see Ezekiel 36:10–12, 33–36).
3.    The land will become highly productive and fruitful, even like the Garden of Eden (see Ezekiel 36:8, 29–30, 34–35).
4.    There will be one nation in the land of Israel again (see Ezekiel 37:22).
5.    Jerusalem will be reestablished as the capital city of the Israelites (see Zechariah 1:16–17; 2:12; 12:6; 3 Nephi 20:46).
6.    Judah will become powerful in politics and warfare (see Isaiah 19:16–17; Zechariah 10:3, 5–6).
7.    A great combination of organizations serving Satan will arise in the last days. This combination has several names: the “beast … out of the sea” (Revelation 13:1), representing the kingdoms of the earth (see JST, Revelation 13:1; 17:8–14; Bruce R. McConkie, Doctrinal New Testament Commentary3:520); the “great and abominable church,” “the church of the devil,” “the great whore,” and “the mother of … abominations” (Revelation 17:1, 5).
Elder George Q. Morris of the Quorum of the Twelve stated that some of the totalitarian regimes of the 20th century were part of this coalition:

 

Great Tribulation

Mother of Abominations makes war with the Saints

 

Flee unto Zion/ The might of Zion shall go forth

Two Prophets in Israel (two witnesses): Revelation 11, D&C 77:15

 

 

 

 

Adam-Ondi-Ahman ( Ancient of Days Sits ):


"Judah must return, Jerusalem must be rebuilt, and the temple, and water come out from under the temple, and the waters of the Dead Sea be healed. …all this must be done before the Son of Man will make his appearance. …..then will appear one grand sign of the Son of Man in heaven."  (Joseph Fielding Smith. Teachings of the Prophet Joseph Smith. Section Six 1843–44, p.286)

 

 

 


Day of the Lord

Starts with: the sun will be darkened, the moon will not give its light, stars will fall from the sky (Joel 2:10, Matthew 24:29). In Revelation 6:12, this coincides with the opening of the sixth seal, when the sun turns black and the moon turns blood red.   2 Thes 2:1-3,
