But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up.

I remember reading many years ago a quote by a general authority that the time will come when our leaders will not be among us, that they would have to flee because they would be hunted. I finally found the quote, it was by Heber C. Kimball:
"Let me say to you, that many of you will see the time when you will have all the trouble, trial and persecution that you can stand, and plenty of opportunities to show that you are true to God and his work. This Church has before it many close places through which it will have to pass before the work of God is crowned with victory. To meet the difficulties that are coming, it will be necessary for you to have a knowledge of the truth of this work for yourselves. The difficulties will be of such a character that the man or woman who does not possess this personal knowledge or w…

I prayed. Then went to bed. I was still awake, when suddenly I heard a trumpet sound. A voice cried out to me, "Stand!"....One of the armed men came to me. "I woke you to show you what is to come," he said. ~Dumitru Duduman

Beware of the Gadiantons:

For purple mountain majesties
Vision of the End of the World
This panoramic view of the earth came into view and then came closer and closer like I had been out into space and was flying towards it.
I knew that this was to help me make my decision to go back to earth, to my terrible life, because part of me wanted to go back to the beautiful spirit world or paradise and part of me felt the need to go back into my body and change my life. It was kind of a tug of war and what I was going to see was to help me understand what I would go through if I went back into my clay body.
It played out again just like a video tape in fast forward motion and yet again I could assimilate and see everything clearly and perfectly. As the world zoomed up to me I saw the whole world and then the various countries.
I don't know the countries of the world very well, but as I looked at these lands I instinctively knew what countries they were. I was looking at the Middle East and watched as a missile flew from Libya and hit Isra…
