Read Joseph Smith—Matthew. Then fill in the following chart. After each item you list, write the verse number where you found that item.

The righteous are promised that the wicked shall not destroy them, the Lord promises to preserve the righteous by his power.  The Lord will destroy only his enemies.  The righteous need not fear.  The Lord promises to prepare a way for his people.  As long as we keep the commandments we will escape the destruction of the second coming.
