Introduction and Purpose

Updated: May 21, 2020


Thank you for visiting Signs and Prophecies!


We welcome everyone from all different races, backgrounds and religions. We encourage it!



The Purpose of This Website:


I created this website with the desire to help prepare anyone, who is willing to listen, to:


  • Be Watchful for the signs that have been proclaimed and prophesied by many Prophets through out time.

  • Be Ready before calamities come of all sorts such as plagues, droughts, famines, communism, civil war, invasion. If you are prepared physically, you will be ready to take action.

  • To Harken when our modern-day Prophet tells us that it is time to flee our homes and gather together. It has been suggested that we may not receive any more warnings as they have been given many times over.

  • Be Safe in our gatherings from these calamities until they and conflicts have calmed and await further instruction.



We Love You!


If you are not a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, some things in here may seem new and strange to you. I will use the words of our current living Prophets and Apostles as well as past Prophets and Apostles. We believe that they all have power and authority given to them by God. We will talk about scriptures from both the King James Holy Bible and the Book of Mormon. We believe that they are both testaments of Christ but from different parts of time and areas of the world.


If these do not fit your religious view but you still would like to come and be part of our discussions and blogs, please do! If these things do not fit your religious view and you think it may make you angry or hateful towards our Faith, we're sad and sorry that you feel this way. Please be respectful and go your way. If these things do not fit your religious view but you would like it to, please visit The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints and learn more about our Faith! Or reach out to me and together we can help you find the Missionaries. We are very accepting of all people and eager to help. We want you to succeed.


Contrary to many popular beliefs, we do not preach or believe that those who sin will "go to hell". After all, we are all sinners who are trying their best to repent and make changes in our lives so we can one day live with Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ again. If you have heard otherwise by another member of our church, then that person was acting contrary to their religion and is thereby sinning. We love you!


If you are struggling and would like to join a Facebook page that focuses on love, prayers and encouragement for you or a loved one from all types of faiths, please visit: Worldwide Unified.

I will do my best to always provide an internet link to one of these many works that I gather information from. If there is something I refer to and I didn't provide a link, fill out the "contact me" form at the bottom of my "Home" page or email me directly at signsandprophecies@gmail.com, or start a forum conversation! It may take me a few days to get back to you, but I will.


You might be surprised that the amount of information available to us on prophecies that we hear even at General Conference that go unnoticed by many who do not know what to look for!



What is Prophecy?


"Members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints are taught from early youth that God is ever anxious to guide his children through perilous times, and even today has called prophets who are once more warning, predicting, and testifying to the world."


Gerald N. Lund


Prophesy is when the Lord gives our Prophet knowledge, directions for himself and the Church, and things he should teach. You see that Prophesy isn't just a foretelling of future events. It is anything that comes to our Prophet from God.


Prophets have at least four main purposes:


1. To testify of the divinity of the Savior.

2. To prepare the Church for the crises in life that will confront them.

3. They warn the people of the earth of things which will result if wrong choices are made.

4. They predict future events that will profoundly affect the destiny of men.


Why is this important? Prophets warn us. That means that there is still hope. There is still time to repent. There is still time to change our choices before it's too late.


In the words of Pres. Harold B. Lee, "We do not need more prophets to speak, we need more ears to listen."



How to Discern False Prophecy


How can one tell false prophecy from true prophecy? Unfortunately, many fraudulent prophets are successful in leading people astray. This leaves many unprotected with disastrous results. We have been warned over (and over) again to not be deceived. So how do we know?


The easiest way to test is to see if these Prophets do it for money. All too often, money corrupts. What the Lord wants you to know, He freely gives.


If a Prophet teaches or does anything that is contrary to the Gospel of Jesus Christ it should never be received as authoritative or reliable. The same if it is contrary to covenants and doctrines.


More difficult ways to discern is if they prophesy for praise and fame. Are they one way in public and another in person? Do they not live what they teach? Or many times they are much more popular in the public eye than another Prophet who perhaps is ignored, scorned or even martyred.


Matthew 7: 15-20


15. Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly

they are ravening wolves.


16. Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or

figs of thistles?


17. Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree

bringeth forth devil fruit.


18. A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring

forth good fruit.


19. Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into

the fire.


20. Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them.
