When Jesus Christ Comes Again

And if you are faithful, behold, I am with you until I come—And verily, verily, I say unto you, I come quickly (D&C 34:11–12).

In Old Testament times, the prophet Malachi prophesied that in the last days “the Lord … shall suddenly come to his temple” (Mal. 3:1).

Malachi’s prophesy is being fulfilled. We know that Jesus Christ spoke to Joseph Smith and Oliver Cowdery in the Kirtland Temple and that He appeared to President Lorenzo Snow in the Salt Lake Temple. President Snow’s granddaughter said, “Grandpa told me what a glorious personage the Savior is and described His hands, feet, countenance, and beautiful white robes, all of which were of such a glory of whiteness and brightness that he could hardly gaze upon Him. … Grandpa … said: ‘Now, granddaughter, I want you to remember that this is the testimony of your grandfather, that he told you with his own lips that he actually saw the Savior here in the Temple, and talked with Him face to face.’”*

Jesus Christ’s Second Coming will be “sudden,” but we will be prepared to meet Him if we listen to the prophet and keep sacred covenants.


To remind you that when Jesus Christ comes again, He will come to the temple, complete this dot-to-dot picture, then color it.
