There can be little doubt that we live in troubled times. Prophets throughout history have prophesied of our day, each of whom spoke of the dire conditions that world face mankind just prior to the Lord’s Second Coming. Numerous books on the subject have been written, each calling for man to be prepared against the terrible tribulation destined to cleanse the world of the wicked before the prophesied Coming of Christ.
Warnings interspersed throughout the Bible are well known, but Book of Mormon prophets have also issued warnings for those of our day, as have many latter-day prophets of the Restored Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. While standing in General Conference, Elder Bruce R. McConkie said:
I stand before the Church this day and raise the warning voice. It is a prophetic voice, for I shall say only what the apostles and prophets have spoken concerning our day. . . It is a voice calling upon the Lord’s people to prepare for the troubles and desolations which are about to be poured out upon the world without measure. For the moment we live in a day of peace and prosperity but it shall not ever be thus. Great trials lie ahead. All of the sorrows and perils of the past are but a foretaste of what is yet to be. . . . Bands of Gadianton robbers will infest every nation, immorality and murder and crime will increase, and it will seem as though every man’s hand is against his brother.2
The insightful book, The Prophesied Coming of Christ, also includes prophecies from various Native American prophets who also saw our day and have issued warnings of their own, a duty of all righteous leaders of the Lord’s earthy flock. Latter-day prophets of the restored Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints have continually called upon every righteous priesthood leader to sound the warning cry and to admonish the Saints to be prepared both physically and spiritually for the terrible times ahead. Noah warned his people for 120 years. It has been even longer than that for us. Thus, we can’t expect the prophesied events destined to cleanse the land of the wicked to be held at bay much longer. In fact, they have already begun. We are living in the eleventh hour, with the minute-hand quickly approaching the twelfth. Thus it is more important than ever to be prepared, for there can be little doubt that the main part of the storm is quickly approaching. In fact it is approaching much faster than any of us would like, with the need to prepare never emphasized more forcibly than it is today. The Prophesied Coming of Christ follows the history of the world from the days of Adam onward allowing us to see how mankind has either risen in glory because of righteousness, or fallen because of sin and makes it possible for us to ask the question, “where on the scale do we stand today?
What a magnificent book!! I really enjoyed the comprehensive look at history, ancient and modern-day prophecy, and Native American prophecy. I love how the author helps us understand how they all give similar insights into our future and end-times and that there is hope in turbulent times. (Jeremy, L..)

Native American Prophecies of the Future
Twenty years of research paid off with a firm knowledge of who the descending Lamanites of the Book of Mormon proved to be, and just how they fit into the end times prophecies of our day and beyond. It was a sobering journey into the future which led me to my last and final book on the subject of the near Cumorah setting for the Book of Mormon called The Prophesied Coming of Christ. It is amazing just how similar Iroquois, Cherokee and Navajo prophecies are to those of both ancient and latter-day prophets.
Watch and be Ready
The call has gone out to watch and be ready for the storms destined to fall upon the nations just prior to the Savior’s Second Coming. Far too few have headed that call, and are not prepared for the turbulent times ahead. Yet, they are coming nonetheless, and many a saint and sinner alike will be wanting when three is no bread to eat or other necessities of life. Watch the following video and refresh your memory of the many times the Lord’s prophets have called us to prepare.
