    Overview. The word Zion appears repeatedly in all the books of scripture of the Church. In latter-day revelation, Zion is defined as “the pure in heart” (Doctrine and Covenants ).In the early days of this dispensation, Church leaders counseled members to build up Zion by emigrating to a central location. This book of the Bible describes the visions of a prophet regarding the coming judgment on the country of Edom and the eventual triumph of Zion. The answer .

Daniel explained to the king that the statue.   Daniel’s vision of the four beasts begins with a windy night and a troubled sea: “In my vision at night I looked, and there before me were the four winds of heaven churning up the great sea” (Daniel ).

      Cleon Skousen's book addressing the cleansing of America also sight's the vision in Wilford Woddruff's journal entry and well as the Evan's vision, as well as multpile scriptual passages, to support his view(s) on how the Lord will likely prepare America for the literal coming forth of Zion in the last days and before the Second Coming. Visions of Glory Probably one of the most comprehensive books written with rich details about events of the last days shown in vision. Our relationship to the spirit world, good and bad spirits and how they interact with us. The Utah earthquake. The invasion of foreign troops in America. The trek back to Missouri for the gathering of New Jerusalem.

While it's an account of one man's personal experience and visions it is interesting to read what he saw and experienced. It really is an eye opener and puts things in a whole new perspective to some of the 'behind the scenes' stuff we don't normally see, hear or realize exists and to what degree and in that kind of s: K.

There is intense interest in the book that recounts the near-death experiences and visions of the future of “Spencer” (a pseudonym for a member of the Church who prefers to remain anonymous), as told to John Pontius, who actually wrote the book.
