D&C 121:28-32 -- On Endings and Beginnings

"A time to come in the which nothing shall be withheld, whether there be one God or many gods, they shall be manifest.
All thrones and dominions, principalities and powers, shall be revealed and set forth upon all who have endured valiantly for the gospel of Jesus Christ.
And also, if there be bounds set to the heavens or to the seas, or to the dry land, or to the sun, moon, or stars--
All the times of their revolutions, all the appointed days, months, and years, and all the days of their days, months, and years, and all their glories, laws, and set times, shall be revealed in the days of the dispensation of the fulness of times--
According to that which was ordained in the midst of the Council of the Eternal God of all other gods before this world was, that should be reserved unto the finishing and the end thereof, when every man shall enter into his eternal presence and into his immortal rest."
Doctrine and Covenants 121:28-32

Long one today, but so interesting... in keeping with our end-of-the-world theme, there are all kinds of things here that are cool to look forward to. :)  We get to know *everything*... stuff science hasn't been able to figure out for centuries.  So so so cool. :)  All about God, singular and plural... astronomy, physics... so much to learn and so little time.  :)  I love the part about the Council of the the Eternal God of all other Gods... wow.  I mean, it seems almost science fiction, but it's for real. :)  I love it.  I mean, we're just in the God Academy now... there is a whole other world waiting for us.

And then it says finishing... do you think that is like completion, or like finish line? :)  that is an interesting thing to think about... and there are tons of other things... but anyway, at this ending time of the year... it is cool to think about all the great things that will happen at the end. :)  Very cool, not depressing at all. :)  Think of the endless possibilities that open up to us, only because of what seems like an ending to us, but is actually the best beginning. :)
