Haggai 2:6 “For thus saith the Lord of hosts; Yet once, it is a little while, And I will shake the heavens, and the earth, and the sea, and the dry land.” – BC 520, Haggai

There are many remarkable items to look at and study when it comes to the temple veil being ripped in two so let’s get right into it! The first thing you’ll want to take note of is how many times this event was prophesied about in the OT. We’ve listed three of those above. They serve as proof of yet more miracles God has done for us. PTL!
One of the coolest items on this topic is found in the gospel of John. In John 19:30, we read Jesus’ declaration, “…It is finished!”
The significance of Jesus’ words mustn’t be glossed over. Someone who is crucified dies of asphyxiation which means they’ve run out of air. Not Jesus. Jesus gave up His life, willingly, which means it wasn’t taken from Him. Another sign He was in control of His own life is found in the fact He was actually talking at the end of His life. Amazingly, His voice could be heard over the trumpets blaring at the same time.
Jesus made the comment ‘it was finished’, signifies two things. Firstly is the fact He said, ‘it is finished’, not ‘I am finished’. Secondly, the term ‘it is finished’ means the debt for sin was wiped out. The Greek word for finished is tetelestai, meaning the debt is taken care of. He became our sin.
November 16 – Acts 3:22-23; “For Moses truly said unto the fathers, A prophet shall the Lord your God raise up unto you of your brethren, like unto me; him shall ye hear in all things whatsoever he shall say unto you. And it shall come to pass, that every soul, which will not hear that prophet, shall be destroyed from among the people.”
The other day I came upon an article on ldsliving.org titled “How the Gospel Is Like a Real-Life Fairy Tale”. It’s funny they think of the Mormon gospel as a fairytale, I always thought of it as science fiction drama. I can see the introduction going something like “In a galaxy far, far away on a planet next to the star Kolob…………” (Book of Abraham 3:2-3)
Ecclesiastes 1:9; “The thing that hath been, it is that which shall be; and that which is done is that which shall be done: and there is no new thing under the sun.”
Mosiah 11:3; “And he laid a tax of one fifth part of all they possessed, a fifth part of their gold and of their silver, and a fifth part of their ziff, and of their copper, and of their brass and their iron; and a fifth part of their fatlings; and also a fifth part of all their grain.”
Titus 2:11-12; “For the grace of God has appeared, bringing salvation for all people, 12 training us to renounce ungodliness and worldly passions, and to live self-controlled, upright, and godly lives in the present age.”
Looking at Thomas Monson’s speech at General Conference reminded me of all the warnings Paul gave to new believers in Galatia, and the more I read, the darker my outlook became for the Mormon people. Today we’re taking a quick look at a couple of key items in his speech you can access at the embedded link above.
‘I testify of the great gift which is our Father’s plan for us. It is the one perfect path to peace and happiness. …
Essential to the plan is our Savior, Jesus Christ. Without His atoning sacrifice, all would be lost. It is not enough, however, merely to believe in Him and His mission. We need to work and learn, search and pray, repent and improve.’
