I've decided

Last night I was reading sec 78. Great chapter, telling us about God's plan for Zion, his qualities and that he has and that he will come through on his promises. Lots of good stuff in there that taught me so much.

Verse 15:That you may come up unto the acrown prepared for you, and be made brulers over many kingdoms, saith the Lord God, the Holy One of Zion, who hath established the foundations of cAdam-ondi-Ahman;

What stood out was the "many kingdoms". Plural- not just one. I cross referenced it which led to Revelations 20: 6. I almost read that whole chapter. Ch 20 is about the Millennium. Satan will be loosed after the 1000 years and shall go forth to deceive the nations (v8). I don't want to be one of those that are deceived. Can you imagine being righteous during those years, doing temple work, having peace and then you don't believe it, being led astray. Sounds terrible to me. Even the very elect will be deceived.

Isa. 45: 4 Israel mine elect, I have even called thee. Matt. 24: 24 (Mark 13: 22; JS-M 1: 22) they shall deceive the very elect.

So what I've decided is I want to die before the melinium. I'll just keep being righteous my whole life and help from the other side. No chances of being deceived. I think it's a good plan!

Last Sunday we sung hymn 137 "Testimony" I love the words to the last verse. It's really true.

As testimony fills my heart, It dulls the pain of days.

For one brief moment, heaven's view Appears before my gaze.

That was interesting insight! I hope to see the second comming of Christ. I hope I am strong enough to endure!!

A while ago I decided the same thing about wanting to die before the second coming. But for me it was for a different reason. I don't want to miss out on the spirit world experience. I want to spend some time in the spirit world, and then when He comes I can go visit the earth and do millenial work in my resurrected body. That way I get to experience both!!
