- Show the children this image of a hen gathering chickens.
- Jesus talks about how He will gather His people like a hen gathering chicks to protect them.
- This week, we are going to be talking about the last days and the Second Coming.
- Right now, we are called to gather Zion, which means we gather as stakes around the world.
- How does this help us be prepared for the things that will happen before the Second Coming? (We will talk more about those tribulations later this week.)
What can I do to strengthen my stake?
- The Savior is going to visit earth again. This is called the Second Coming.
- When He comes, the wicked will be destroyed and we will live in love and peace for 1,000 years called the Millennium.
- After the Millennium, everyone will be judged and will go to the different Kingdoms of Glory.
What can I do to prepare for the Second Coming?
“Jesus Christ Will Come Again!” booklet
- No one knows when the Second Coming will be. But before the Second Coming, there will be signs that it is getting closer.
- The Lord told Joseph Smith what a lot of those signs will be. What did we read about?
- How do you feel about these signs? They seem a little scary, don’t they? Let’s read what the apostle Elder Ballard said about these signs: “My message to you, my young friends, is simply this: The Lord is in control. He knows the end from the beginning. He has given us adequate instruction that, if followed, will see us safely through any crisis. His purposes will be fulfilled, and someday we will understand the eternal reasons for all of these events.”
- We have a living prophet who will help guide us through these hard times. If we trust him and follow his counsel, we will be okay.
What can I do when I feel afraid of what is happening?
Read “Emergency Day Drill” and make sure you know where things are in your house in case of an emergency.
- The Lord told Joseph that in the last days, it would be important to be obedient.
- All commandments are spiritual, even if the commandments are about things on this earth (like having food storage or obeying parents when asked to do chores).
- Make a list of temporal commandments and list some of the spiritual principles about them.
What should I do when I don’t think a commandment is important?
“What Laws Mean” matching activity.
- Who knows the story of Adam and Eve? When Eve ate the fruit, this was called The Fall.
- Many religions think it was a bad thing that Eve at the fruit. But they don’t understand that without the knowledge of good and evil, we wouldn’t be tested and tried and wouldn’t be able to return to live with Heavenly Father and Jesus again.
- We are redeemed (saved) from The Fall and our wrong choices because Jesus paid the punishment for our sins and died for us.
What blessings do I have because of The Fall?
