Daniel described the Abomination of Desolation taking place in the middle of the week (or the middle of the seven years). And Jesus refers to the second half of the tribulation after the Abomination of Desolation as 'great tribulation'.

His phrase, “more than we think” refers to our cultural tendency to under-estimate the number, among all of God’s Children, who will ultimately be exalted.


In these sermons, Elder McConkie clarifies another cultural tendency. We under-estimate the number among those of God’s …
