I feel certain that if, in our homes, parents will read from The Book of Mormon prayerfully and regularly, both by themselves and with their children, the spirit of that great book will come to permeate our homes and all who dwell therein. The spirit of reverence will increase; mutual respect and consideration for each other will grow. The spirit of contention will depart. Parents will counsel their children in greater love and wisdom. Children will be more responsive and submissive to the counsel of their parents. Righteousness will increase. Faith, hope, and charity - the pure love of Christ - will abound in our homes and lives, bringing in their wake peace, joy, and happiness.

Things that are to come

 The Savior Taught About Future Events
Destruction of the Temple in Jerusalem (JS-M 1:5-20)

  • Believers of Christ will be afflicted, hated, and killed.
  • Believers of Christ will be offended by one another and there will be hate and betrayal among them.
  • False Prophets
  • Iniquity will abound and people will be cold-hearted and lack love for one another.

Promises to the Righteous
  • Those who remain steadfast shall not be overcome and shall be saved
The Second Coming of Jesus Christ (JS-M 1:21-55)
Events to Occur
  • False Christ's
  • False Prophets
  • Sign seekers

Promises to the Righteous

2. Study 1 Nephi 22:16–22; Doctrine and Covenants 97:22, 25. Then write a statement that would give hope to a person who worries about the Second Coming. 
 Doctrine and Covenants 97:25 says, ' Nevertheless, Zion shall escape if she observe to do all things whatsoever I have commanded her.' 
TheLord has said, “If ye are prepared ye shall not fear” (D&C 38:30)
 Those who are obedient need not fear.
