OCTOBER 1975 To Make a People Prepared for the Lord
Delbert L. Stapley

My beloved brothers and sisters, and friends of the radio and television listening audience: Prior to the birth of the Savior, many prophecies were given foretelling his coming to earth. The early prophets revealed the events which would precede his birth and described his earthly mission, thus enabling the people of the world to recognize him as their Savior, Lord, and God. Although the house of Israel possessed a written record of numerous prophecies concerning Christ’s earthly life, still the Eternal Father sent a special messenger, John the Baptist, “to make ready a people prepared for the Lord.” (Luke 1:17.)
The predictions of the early prophets concerning Christ’s birth, life, and ministry were fulfilled, and those who sincerely believed were prepared to accept and follow him. This being true, we can reliably expect that the happenings prophesied of concerning his second coming will also be fulfilled.
Toward the close of Christ’s earthly ministry, his disciples, being concerned about his teachings of the end of the world, went to him “privately, saying, Tell us, when shall these things be? And what shall be the sign of thy coming, and of the end of the world?
And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you.” (Matt. 24:3–4.)
The Savior then explained to his disciples the signs and happenings which will occur prior to his second coming. These are recorded in the twenty-fourth chapter of Matthew and warrant careful study.
...The scriptural prophecies of the events that are to precede Christ’s second coming serve as a guide and a warning to all inhabitants of the earth. Shouldn’t we listen to these warnings as we witness the signs being fulfilled?
As John the Baptist was sent prior to Christ’s birth to prepare the way for his ministry, so did God send a prophet to usher in this last dispensation of his gospel in preparation for the second coming of our Savior. The Prophet Joseph Smith testified to a doubting world that Jesus is the Christ, the very Son of God.
The Lord, in a latter-day revelation, reaffirmed the tribulations, desolations, calamities, and destructive forces of the last days. He warned:
And in that day shall be heard of wars and rumors of wars, and the whole earth shall be in commotion. …
And the love of men shall wax cold, and iniquity shall abound. …
Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man.” (Luke 21:25–28, 34, 36.)
Let us all, my brothers and sisters, discern prophecy’s fulfillment, set in order our homes, and be prepared for this important day. And finally, let us meet the challenge to “make ready a people” for the Lord’s second coming, I humbly pray in the name of Jesus Christ. Amen.

So much has been said and warnings have been given and it has been a long time since the church was organized and warnings have been given, but, Like the Nephites of old, when it seems too long it will happen and we need to prepare now for that time.
If we die before the second coming then, we will see Him then, so for us, that time may be nearer than we think. He will bring peace, blessed peace.
