“Signs Given Unto My People of His Birth”

Bryan Richards

Samuel the Lamanite prophesied of the signs of the coming of Jesus Christ. Five years prior to their fulfillment, he described the signs of his birth as follows, 1) great lights in heaven…one day and a night and a day, as if it were one day, 2) there shall a new star arise, and 3) many signs and wonders in heaven (see Hel 14:2-6).

The signs of his death and resurrection are 1) complete darkness in the land for 3 days, 2) terrible destructions—lightning, thunder, earthquakes, etc., and 3) the resurrection of many saints. See Hel 14:20-25.
