“Verily I say unto you, There be some standing here, which shall not taste of death, till they see the Son of man coming in his kingdom.” —Matthew 16:28
“As is clear from the inspired account, Zion shall be built up—she shall obtain that perfection and glory which is hers—when the Lord appears in his glory. She shall then become as she once was. This will be during the Millennium when the restoration of all things is completed. Zion shall be perfected after the second coming of Christ.” —Bruce R. McConkie
