The Faithful Safe During His Second Coming

Yesterday evening, we spent the rest of the day doing chores. I stayed up until almost midnight and figured out how to transfer pictures from the cell phone to the computer, so Misty could take pictures of what the professor shows in class.

This morning, I didn’t get up until almost noon. I was still very tired from Friday night’s performance. That’s just another reason that I am moving on. (Okay, staying up to midnight didn’t help either; but it isn’t the first time after a performance that I was not able to function the whole weekend.) I need to be able to participate in life the rest of the weekend. We missed church, and relaxed at home. This evening, as I prepared for my lesson next week in Elders Quorum, we watched the Priesthood Session of the latest General Conference.

“For behold, the day cometh that shall burn as an oven; and all the proud, yea, and all that do wickedly, shall be stubble; and the day that cometh shall burn them up, saith the Lord of Hosts, that it shall leave them neither root nor branch.

But unto you that fear my name, shall the Son of Righteousness arise with healing in his wings; and ye shall go forth and grow up as calves in the stall.” (3 Nephi 25: 1-2)

These verses quote Jesus, who is dictating what He told Malachi, in Malachi 4. What is interesting here, is that Malachi 4: 2 uses the word ‘Sun’, instead of the word ‘Son’. So, does this make a difference? I am not sure. Both verses refer to Jesus, at the time of His Second Coming. I think that is what is most important; and that He will keep safe those who revere Him.

This is what I previously wrote after reading 3 Nephi 25:  The Proud Burned To A Stubble
