This is the 2013 UPDATED and REVISED version of "65 Signs of the Times"
Studying the signs of the times can instill fear and even panic. This is not the intent of God in giving them. Regarding these prophecies, the Savior instructed “see that ye be not troubled.”

In his latest book, Using the Signs of the Times to Strengthen Your Testimony, bestselling author David J. Ridges lists 96 signs of the times and provides a brief description of each, grounded in the scriptures and the words of modern prophets. Each sign is categorized as fulfilled, being fulfilled, or yet to be fulfilled. Ridges uses these God-given signs to strengthen testimony and bear witness that we indeed live in the marvelous and much-prophesied time when the gospel is going forth into all the world and the Spirit of the Lord is being poured out “upon all flesh” (Joel 2:28).

Use this book to strengthen your testimony and promote your own inner peace, stability, and happiness. You’ll see that this is a day of miracles—a prophesied day of spreading the gospel to all the world.


The return of the long-lost ten tribes, a new Jerusalem being built, heavenly messengers from beyond this life

It may sound like fantasy, but according to the scriptures, all of these things will really come to pass before our Savior comes again. In fact, these signs were designed by the Lord to alert true believers to his imminent return. The question is, Will you recognize the signs?
