Joel Chapter 2 – Sun shall be darkened

“The words of the prophets are rapidly being fulfilled, but it is done on such natural principles that most of us fail to see it. Joel promised that the Lord would pour out his spirit upon all flesh: the sons and daughters should prophesy, old men should dream dreams, and young men should see visions. Wonders in heaven and in the earth would be seen, and there would be fire, blood, and pillars of smoke. Eventually the sun is to be turned into darkness and the moon as blood and then shall come the great and dreadful day of the Lord. Some of these signs have been given; some are yet to come. The sun has not yet been darkened.  We are informed that this will be one of the last acts just preceding the coming of the Lord.”

April 1966 General Conference, President Joseph Fielding Smith, Counselor in the First Presidency and President of the Council of the Twelve Apostles (emphasis added)

**************************************************

The vision of Joel has been fulfilled wherein he declared:
‘And it shall come to pass afterward, that I will pour out my spirit upon all flesh; and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, your young men shall see visions: And also upon the servants and upon the handmaids in those days will I pour out my spirit. And I will shew wonders in the heavens and in the earth, blood, and fire, and pillars of smoke. The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and the terrible day of the Lord come. And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be delivered: for in mount Zion and in Jerusalem shall be deliverance, as the Lord hath said, and in the remnant whom the Lord shall call’ (Joel 2:28–32).”

October 2001 General Conference, President Gordon B. Hinckley, President of the Church (emphasis added)

  1. The sun shall be darkened and the other signs of an astronomical catastrophe are quoted by Christ as sign for the generation which will see his coming and as the sign of the sixth seal in Revelations. It also can be found other places in the Old Testament than Joel.
    As an astronomical catastrophe it would also fit with prophesies about the destruction of Albany by fire from heaven, the earthquake in New York and ocean’s flooding of Philadelphia.
    One way this could happen is if a nebula of passes through our solar system, (much like the collision of galaxies seen in some photos of space). Since the gas is very spread out it’s approach is not easily seen, yet it could have enough gravity to displace comets or and other matter from the Oort cloud. It is hard to be certain of what is in the Oort cloud; although the Kuiper belt and several trans-Neptunian objects are known and mapped

    Perhaps the 2012 predictions from various cultures are true and this event is soon at hand. The sixth seal should soon be over and the seventh upon us base on years since Christ.
