Today's Favorite Verse: Moses 7:61-63

Today's Favorite Verse: Moses 7:61-63
"And the day shall come that the earth shall rest, but before that day the heavens shall be darkened, and a veil of darkness shall cover the earth; and the heavens shall shake, and also the earth; and great tribulations shall be among the children of men, but my people will I preserve;
And righteousness will I send down out of heaven; and truth will I send forth out of the earth; to bear testimony of mine Only Begotten; his resurrection from the dead; yea, and also the resurrection of all men; and the righteousness and truth will I cause to sweep the earth as with a flood, to gather out mine elect from the four quarters of the earth, unto a place which I shall prepare, an Holy City, that my people may gird up their loins, and be looking forth for the time of my coming; for there shall be my tabernacle, and it shall be called Zion, a New Jerusalem.
And the Lord said unto Enoch: Then shall thou and all thy city meet them there, and we will receive them into our bosom, and they shall see us; and we will fall upon their necks, and they shall fall upon our necks, and we will kiss each other;"

My wish would be to live to see the return of the City of Enoch to the earth. I want to fall upon their necks and kiss them, and hold them very, very tight. It has been such a desire of my heart my whole life. Though I don't know if I will ever live to see that day in the flesh.

As I was reading this, and pondering on how glorious a scene it would be, a thought came to me. During family scripture reading we talk about the days event, and the increasing wickedness in the world. We say all the time "I can't believe what we are seeing. It's like we are in some type of dream." I realized I have thought upon the return of the City of Enoch also like some type of dream. You know it will happen, but doesn't seem real. I don't know why I exactly had to think of this future event in quite that parallel, but there must be something to it. I do not feel I will see this tomorrow, once again no knowledge I will live to see it. But, what was once unreal in this world is now becoming real. We really do live in particular times.

Day 566
