Revelation, 22–23 September 1832 [D&C 84]

understandingly the dessolation of abomination in the last days67

See Daniel 9:27; 11:31; and Matthew 24:15.  


for with you saith the Lord Almighty I will rend there kingdoms I will not only shake the earth but the starry heavens shall tremble also68

See Joel 2:10.  


for I the Lord have put forth mine hand to exhert the powers of heaven ye cannot see it now, yet a little while and ye shall see it and know that I am and that I will come and reign with my people I am Alpha and Omega69

These titles for Jesus Christ were used in the Bible, the Book of Mormon, and earlier JS revelations. (See, for example, Revelation 1:8, 11; Book of Mormon, 1830 ed., 473–474 [3 Nephi 9:18]; and Revelation, ca. Summer 1829 [D&C 19:1].)
