We watched The Testaments: Of One Fold and One Shepherd yesterday as a family. That movie always stirs a deep part of me that is anxious for the second coming of the Savior. I have a sincere testimony that Jesus came to earth, and I know that He will come again.
Every time I watch that movie, I get a renewed sense of urgency to:
1.) Live my life righteously so that I will have oil in my lamp when the Savior comes
2.) Study the scriptures for the signs of His second coming
3.) Watch for the signs of the second coming so that I will be ready when He comes again
So that’s what I have been doing this morning. I’ve been re-reading the last chapter of James E Talmage’s Jesus The Christ entitled “Jesus The Christ to Return.” I haven’t read much, but there are so many signs, and it is my goal over the next few weeks to learn about as many of them as I can.
Christ came to earth. I know He did. I know he was crucified and then rose on the third day. And I know that He will come again. And I want to be ready for Him.
