Revelation, circa 7 March 1831 [D&C 45]

And in this ye say truly for so it is But these things  which I have told you shall not pass away but all shall  be fulfilled & this I have told you concerning Jerusalum  & when that day shall come shall a remnant shall a be  scattered among all Nations but they shall be gethered  again but they shall remain untill the times of the  gentiles be fulfelled & in that day shall be heard of  wars & rumours of wars & the whole Earth shall be in  commotion & mens hearts shall fail them & & shall say  that Christ delayeth his coming until the end of the  world & the love of men shall wax cold & inequity shall  abound & when the times of the gentiles shall be is come  in And a light shall break forth among them that sit in  darkness & it shall be the fulness of my Gospel but they  receive it not for they perceive not the light & they turn their  hearts from me because of the precepts of men & in that  generation shall the times of the gentiles be fulfilled &  there shall be men standing in that generation that shall  not pass untill they shall see an overflowing scourge  for a desolating sicknes shall cover the land & shall not be  moved but my Deciples shall stand in Holy places & shall  not be moved but among the wicked men shall lift  up their voices & curse God & die & there shall be earthq akes also in diverse places & many desolations yet men  will harden their hearts against me & they will take  up the sword one against another & they will kill one  another And now when I the Lord had spoken these words  unto my Deciples they were troubled for when all these  things shall come & I said unto them be not troubled for  when all these things shall come to pass ye may know  that the promises which have been made unto you shall  be fulfilled & when the light shall begin to break  forth it shall be with them like unto a Parable which  I will shew you ye look & behold the figgtrees & ye see  them with your eyes & ye say when they begin to shoot  forth & th◊◊◊ [their] leaves are yet tender ye say that summer [p. 73]
