Chapter 43: Signs of the Second Coming

I'm excited about this one.  Here is the lesson if you are looking for it.  And here are some articles I find to be helpful.  Happy teaching!

"When Shall These Things Be?" by Elder M. Russell Ballard- Reminds us that no one knows, no one even those who think they do.  However, he points out some signs being fulfilled and to watch the First Presidency and the Apostles because they can not lead you astray.
"Preparation for the Second Coming" by Elder Dallin H. Oaks- Four overall points: 1. The Savior will return in power and glory to reign on the earth 2. There will be destruction of the wicked and resurrection of the righteous 3. No one knows the time 4. Faithful taught to study the signs and prepare for it
"Beware of False Prophets and False Teachers" by M. Russell Ballard- Discusses the dangers, give examples and warns to stay away from false prophets- one of the signs.
"The Joy of Hope Fulfilled" by Elder M. Russell Ballard (yes again)- Reminds us of the joy that will come, not just the destruction and reminds us that the Lord is in the control and knows the plan from the beginning to the end.
"Preparing the World for the Second Coming" by Elder Neil L. Anderson- I generally steer away from the most recent conference talks because the fourth Sunday teaches those but I'm hoping since Conference is next week this one will work.  This talks a lot about our mission to declare the gospel to all the world.
