The Lord’s third appearance

By Frank M. Keele

I’m pretty sure that most of us have a few preconceived notions as to what the Lord’s third appearance will look like and further, I suspect that many of you are thinking that the Lord will come down hard on the nations at that time, however, as we dig a bit deeper into the scriptures we come away with a very different story.

In reality, “The kingdoms of this world” will have already have become “the kingdoms of our Lord, and of his Christ” at the time of his appearance to the Jews as their messiah. From Rev 11:14-15 we read:

14 The second woe is past; and, behold, the third woe cometh quickly.

15 And the seventh angel sounded; and there were great voices in heaven, saying, The kingdoms of this world are become the kingdoms of our Lord, and of his Christ; and he shall reign for ever and ever.

Now, I’m sure there will be a lot of interesting things to unfold when the seventh angel sounds his trump and the third woe is unleashed but John wisely spares us the details and makes what he considers to be the most important point… and that is… that, “The kingdoms of this world are become the kingdoms of our Lord, and of his Christ; and he shall reign for ever and ever.”

And so, there will be no kingdoms to conquer or foes to face when the Lord makes his third appearance, rather, “the Lord God” will ”sanctify the earth, and complete the salvation of man, and judge all things, and shall redeem all things… when he shall have sealed all things, unto the end of all things… the preparing and finishing of his work, in the beginning of the seventh thousand years”. (D&C 77:12)

The reality is, that from the time of the Lord’s appears to and saving of his Jewish brethren from the grips of Gog and his 200 million and leading up to his third appearance, an unrepresented work of redemption will unfold… the preparing of the earth and its inhabitants for a terrestrial and paradisiacal existence.
