The Second Advent of the Lord Jesus Christ will be great, and yet, terrible, too. Like a bride for her bridegroom, we all must prepare. “Be ye…ready, for in such an hour as ye think not, the Son of Man cometh” (JS–M 1:48)
Here depicted in one scene is most of the imagery from Matthew chapter 24: fig trees, a wedding, stars falling from heaven, clouds, angels, and one who’s prepared. “Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken: And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other. …But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only. But as the days of Noe were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark, And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.” (Matthew 24:29-39)
