The Seventh Seal has been broken but no need to panic

So many feel the end is coming quickly.  Yes the seventh seal spoken of in Revelations has been broken.  What do each of the seals mean?  Time.  Around 1,000 years each seal.  Honey, a thousand years is probably like a day to the Lord but to us, it's a long time.  Is the end coming?  Yelp, but it won't happen overnight.  If you really read your bible you know things are going to get pretty bad before that end comes.

What we need to do is be prepared to feed and take care of our families.  We never know when we will face famine but if we have stored food we'll be prepared.  The water thing might take a little more work but prayerfully work on your preps and you'll be ok.

But most important we need to remember our Lord and do the things He has commanded us to do.  We can start with the 10 Commandments. I'm borrowing a little section from our prophet Thomas Monson given just a few weeks ago in the Oct 2011 General Conference session in SLC.

"Although the world has changed, the laws of God remain constant. They have not changed; they will not change. The Ten Commandments are just that—commandments. They are not suggestions. They are every bit as requisite today as they were when God gave them to the children of Israel. If we but listen, we hear the echo of God’s voice, speaking to us here and now:
“Thou shalt have no other gods before me.
“Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image. …
“Thou shalt not take the name of the Lord thy God in vain. …
“Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy. …
“Honour thy father and thy mother. …
“Thou shalt not kill.
“Thou shalt not commit adultery.
“Thou shalt not steal.
“Thou shalt not bear false witness. …
“Thou shalt not covet.”2
Our code of conduct is definitive; it is not negotiable. It is found not only in the Ten Commandments but also in the Sermon on the Mount, given to us by the Savior when He walked upon the earth. It is found throughout His teachings. It is found in the words of modern revelation.
Our Father in Heaven is the same yesterday, today, and forever."
