Witnessing Tip of the Day
August 4 – Matthew 24:24-26; ‘For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect. Behold, I have told you before. Wherefore if they shall say unto you, Behold, he is in the desert; go not forth: behold, he is in the secret chambers; believe it not.’
There are two points to look at here today. The first is a false prophecy. It says that these things would happen ‘not many days hence’. This prophecy was written back in 1832. As of today, it’s been 178 years! The second thing to look at with this passage is how it is phrased. Since when were the stars, sun and moon referred to as ‘he’ and ‘his’? And when were the stars throwing themselves down to the earth? God is in control of these things, not the other way around.
Doctrine and Covenants 88:87; ‘For not many days hence and the earth shall tremble and reel to and fro as a drunken man; and the sun shall hide his face, and shall refuse to give light; and the moon shall be bathed in blood; and the stars shall become exceedingly angry, and shall cast themselves down as a fig that falleth from off a fig-tree.’ – December 27, 1832
