5 Things You Didn't Know Will Happen in the Millennium


New Scripture Will Come Forth

It may seem like we already have plenty of scripture to keep us occupied for millennia—especially when you add up conference addresses from our latter-day prophets and apostles. But just wait. As Nephi put it, “Wo be unto him that shall say . . . we need no more of the word of God, for we have enough!” (2 Nephi 28: 29).

In the Millennium, we will receive additional scriptures. Elder Neal A. Maxwell wrote in A Wonderful Flood of Light that these additional scriptures will include the account of Enoch, the writings of the Apostle John, the records of the lost tribes of Israel, and the sealed portion of the gold plates.

“Today we carry convenient quadruple combinations of the scriptures,” Elder Maxwell wrote, “but one day, since more scriptures are coming, we may need to pull little red wagons brimful with books.”

Anyone glad they have a smartphone library? 

And of course, additional scripture leads to additional revelation. D&C 101: 32-34 reads:

“Yeah, verily I say unto you, in that day when the Lord shall come, he shall reveal all things—
“Things which have passed, and hidden things which no man knew, things of the earth, by which it was made, and the purpose and the end thereof—
“Things most precious, things that are above, and things that are beneath, things that are in the earth, and upon the earth, and in heaven.”
