Signs of the Times Chronology (JS-M)
When will the sign of the coming of the Son of Man be given? We have already shown that the seven last plagues shall be poured out after the opening of the seventh seal, and thus in the beginning of the seventh thousand years. It is then that Armageddon shall be fought; it is then that Jerusalem shall again reap the fate that once was hers; it is then that the abomination thatmakethdesolate shall utterly destroy the wicked within her walls. All this, of course, will come after Judah returns, after the Jerusalem temple is built, after the Jews have begun to believe in their true Messiah.Thus, Jesus on Olivet spoke of the gospel of the kingdom being preached in all the world in the last days and of a second "abomination of desolation" being "fulfilled."Then, using language that establishes a definite time frame and that sets forth an order of chronology, he said: "And immediately after the tribulation of those days"—the plagues and wars and abominable desolation that shall destroy again the city of Jerusalem in the final great war—"the sun shall be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of heaven shall be shaken." He is speaking thus of the final great signs, the wonders and marvels that are yet to be, the final signs that shall be shown forth in heaven and on earth.And then comes this word: "And, as I said before, after the tribulation of those days, and the powers of heaven shall be shaken"—with some deliberation and by emphasis born of repetitionhe is identifying the time frame—"then shall appear the sign of the Son of Man in heaven, and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn; and they shall see the Son of Man coming in the clouds of heaven, with power and great glory." (JS-M 1:31-36) (Bruce R.McConkie, Millennial Messiah: The Second Coming of the Son of Man, 418).
Parable of the Fig Tree (JS-M 38-9)
“The fig tree has put forth its leaves. The summer is here, and all who love the Lord are looking forth to that great day when he shall come in the clouds of heaven to take his rightful place on earth as King of kings” (Joseph Fielding Smith, TheResorationof All Things, p.11)
