This was no doubt one of the darkest times for Western Civilization, and it would lead to even darker ones over the next few centuries, as described by the following verses in Revelation This is generally believed to be a prophecy of the rise of Islam—its onslaught and threat to the West and to Christianity:.
Then the fifth angel sounded, and I saw a star from heaven which had fallen to the earth; and the key of the bottomless pit was given to him.
He opened the bottomless pit, and smoke went up out of the pit, like the smoke of a great furnace; and the sun and the air were darkened by the smoke of the pit. Then out of the smoke came locusts upon the earth, and power was given them, as the scorpions of the earth have power. They were told not to hurt the grass of the earth, Transpersonal Revelations - Arjan Miranda & Mads Hayduk Heldtberg - O.S.M. (Cassette, nor any green thing, nor any tree, but only the men who do not have the seal of God on their foreheads.
And they were not permitted to kill anyone, but to torment for five months; and their torment was like the torment of a scorpion when it stings a man. And Transpersonal Revelations - Arjan Miranda & Mads Hayduk Heldtberg - O.S.M. (Cassette those days men will seek death and will not find it; they will long to die, and death flees from them. The appearance of the locusts was like horses prepared for battle; and on their heads appeared to be crowns like gold, and their faces were like the faces of men.
They had hair like the hair of women, and their teeth were like the teeth of lions. They had breastplates like breastplates of iron; and the sound of their wings was like the sound of chariots, of many horses rushing to battle. They have tails like scorpions, and stings; and in their tails is their power to hurt men for five months. They have as king over them, the angel of the abyss; his name in Hebrew is Abaddon, and in the Greek he has the name Apollyon.
The first woe is past; behold, two woes are still coming after these things. The Saints did not fail. However impossible it may have seemed to them, given the terrible opposition they faced, the Lord promised to guide them through His appointed servants:.
Later, speaking on the same subject of temple ordinances, the Lord affirmed again that He will reveal His will to His authorized servants:. That principle of revelation has been with the Church ever since.
Those who hold the keys have obtained knowledge on what to do. When changes have come, they have come through that process. The Lord does as He said He would do:. He told the Saints that Album) enemies prevented them from keeping a commandment, he would no longer require them to do so. And he said:. The gospel plan was revealed line upon line, precept upon precept, here a little, and there a little. There will be changes made in the future as in the past.
Whether the Brethren make changes or resist them depends entirely upon the instructions they receive through the channels of revelation which were established in the beginning. The doctrines will remain fixed, eternal; the organization, programs, and procedures will be altered as directed by Him whose church this is.
We who have been called to lead the Church are ordinary men and women with ordinary capacities struggling to administer a church which grows at such a pace as to astound even those who Album) it closely. Some are disposed to find fault with us; surely that is easy for them to do. But they do not examine us more searchingly than we examine ourselves. A call to lead is not an exemption from the challenges of life.
We seek for inspiration in the same way that you do, and we must obey the same laws which apply to every member of the Church. We are sorry for our inadequacies, sorry we are not better than we are. We can feel, as you can see, the effect of the aging process as it imposes limitations upon His leaders before your very eyes. But this we know. There are councils and counselors and quorums to counterbalance the foibles and frailties of man.
The Lord organized His church to provide for mortal men to work as mortal men, and yet He assured that the spirit of revelation would guide in all that we do in His name. We know His voice when He speaks. Revelation continues with us today. The promptings of the Spirit, the dreams, and the visions and the visitations, and the ministering of angels all are with us now. Of that I bear witness, in the name of Jesus Christ, amen. October Continuous Revelation James E. Remembrance and Gratitude Henry B.

Written to offer comfort, to aid those trying to understand their faith, and to be read aloud in church, Revelation is viewed by many readers today as shrouded in mystery and rife with elusive symbolism.
Yet, as Catherine and Justo Gonzalez point out, we are not as far from the situation about which John writes as we might think. Although we may not face daily challenges of life and death, injustice and idolatry are rampant in our society.
