Ezra Taft Benson

“Saints of Zion, do you realize we are living in the days of the fulfillment of these signs and wonders? You are among those who will see many of these prophecies fulfilled. Just as certain as was the destruction of the temple at Jerusalem and the scattering of the Jews, so shall these words of the Savior be certain to your generation.

“We know not the day nor the hour of his coming, but of this you may feel assured: You stand close to the great day of the Lord!” (“Prepare Yourselves for the Great Day of the Lord,” BYU Devotional, April 14, 1981).
