A Joseph Smith prophecy about a planet in relation to
the return of Jesus Christ.
The Lord says:
93 And immediately there shall appear a great sign in heaven,
and all people shall see it together.
What is this great sign in heaven that everyone is going to see?
Chapter 21: The Second Coming and the Millennium
Teachings of Joseph Smith
The signs of the Savior’s coming are being fulfilled;
the faithful will recognize these signs and have peace
in perilous times.
“Judah must return, Jerusalem must be rebuilt, and the temple, and water come out from under the temple, and the waters of the Dead Sea be healed [see]. It will take some time to rebuild the walls of the city and the temple, etc.; and all this must be done before the Son of Man will make His appearance. There will be wars and rumors of wars, signs in the heavens above and on the earth beneath, the sun turned into darkness and the moon to blood, earthquakes in divers places, the seas heaving beyond their bounds;
then will appear one grand sign of the Son of Man in heaven.
But what will the world do?
They will say it is a planet, a comet,
But the Son of Man will come as the sign of the coming of the Son of Man, which will be as the light of the morning cometh out of the east."
-- Brother Joseph Smith
General Conference April 1843.
The Prophet On The Second Coming Of The Christ.
Luke 17: 26-27 NIV
26 “Just as it was in the days of Noah,
so also will it be in the days of the Son of Man.
27 People were eating, drinking, marrying and being given in marriage up to the day Noah entered the ark. Then the flood came and destroyed them all."
Could this scripture be taken literally.
What if the Lord used planet X to destroy the earth
with water the first time, and now with it coming again
the earth will be burned with fire this time.
Nahum speaks of the burning of the earth at the Second Coming and of the mercy and power of the Lord.
5 The mountains quake at him, and the hills melt,
and the earth is burned at his presence, yea, the world,
and all that dwell therein.
JD 8:83, Brigham Young, June 12, 1860
This earth, in its present condition and situation,
is not a fit habitation for the sanctified; but it abides the law of its creation, has been baptized with water, will be baptized by fire and the Holy Ghost, and by−and−by will be prepared for the faithful to dwell upon.
"Within this enlarged view of a celestial uniformity, the worldwide flood of Noah’s time, so upsetting to a restricted secular view, fits easily into place. It is the earth’s baptism. Brigham Young pointed out that the earth “abides the law of its creation, has been baptized with water, will be baptized by fire and the Holy Ghost, and by-and-by will be prepared for the faithful to dwell upon” (in Journal of Discourses, 8:83).
The law for a world such as ours closely parallels the law for its inhabitants. Like each of us, the earth existed for a time in the presence of God in a premortal, uncorrupted condition. Like each of us, it entered a fallen, mortal condition. Like us, it must be sanctified by being born again, first of the water and then of the Spirit. The earth has been cleansed by water baptism, and its cleansing by fire associated with the last days will allow the Holy Spirit to dwell throughout the whole earth during the Millennium when the earth, not yet glorified, will be sanctified. For the earth, as for us, the work of salvation can only be completed through death, which will alter its mortal structure, followed by a glorious resurrection, which will establish it upon celestial principles that it may abide in that glory forever."
