This is only long if you highlight/copy Quote from Pres. Joseph F Smith in D & C Student Manual cr 1981;)….Today for Lesson 35…D & C 29: 1-29 …I did the first part of lesson according to manual thru ‘( Articles of Faith 10). The Lord gathers His people as they exercise faith in Him and keep His commandments.’….. NEXT…..instead of Students just reading/asking them questions I decided to pull out The Teaching No Greater Call Manual from a previous calling back in the day. Awesome Book :))) For the questions/reading assignments the students became ‘Human Tic Tac Toes’ per ‘Classroom Creativity’ in TNGC. They LOVED it!!!! To obtain a chair ….Students answered ?’s & said things you could NEVER get them to say other wise inc…sharing testimony on their own…hands raised/anxious!!…. During the part Doctrine and Covenants 29:14–21
‘Jesus Christ describes some of the signs that will precede His Second Coming’ , I read (in lieu of time) …. they were suppose to shout out ‘a sign’ ASAP to ‘acquire a chance at a chair’ this worked great as well!
Then I read the following: …. After Quote…. the *Lesson Video suggestion Of Elder Nelson ‘Men’s Hearts will Fail them’….*Testimony….. 2 out of 3 T T Toe winnings the winners got 2 fun size candy bars/runners up 1 bar….learning unawares ;)…..Awesome Day :))))
Jesus Christ describes some of the signs that will precede His Second Coming President Joseph Fielding Smith said: “I know these are unpleasant things. It is not a pleasant thing even for me to stand here and tell you that this is written in the Scriptures. If the Lord has a controversy with the nations, He will put them to the sword. Their bodies shall lie unburied like dung upon the earth. That is not nice, is it, but should we not know it? Is it not our duty to read these things and understand them? Don’t you think the Lord has given us these things that we might know and we might prepare ourselves through humility, through repentance, through faith, that we might escape from these dreadful conditions that are portrayed by these ancient prophets? That is why I am reading them. I feel just as keenly as you do about the condition, and I pray for it to come to an end, but I want it to come to an end right.”

The figure of a cup full of indignation (see D&C 29:17) suggests that the Lord will no longer forbear taking vengeance on the wicked who will not repent. Just as there is a limit to the amount a cup can hold, so there is a limit to the amount of patience the Lord will show towards those who perform wicked acts. God’s plea is for people to turn from such wickedness and be spared these awful consequences of sin.
