The 24th chapter of St. Matthew speaks of events that parallel our day: "wars and rumors of wars... For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places."
This scripture clearly describes the perilous conditions of our day and time. Is the end of time near? Is the triumphant second coming of Jesus Christ at hand? No, not in the least! Both Bible and Book of Mormon prophecy informs us that Zion will come, a glorious age of peace and joy and the love of God in the hearts of humanity; notwithstanding, Jesus Christ cautions us to be ready now for we will witness unprecedented and frightening conditions upon this land if this Gentile nation refuses to repent.
