Light Shall Break Forth

Early Morning Sunrise over the Mount of Olives taken on May 15, 2010
"And when the times of the Gentiles is come in,
a light shall break forth among them that sit in darkness,
and it shall be the fulness of my gospel. "
Doctrine and Covenants 45: 28

I took this picture on the last morning I was in Jerusalem. This is taken from the Wall of the Old City looking east towards the Mount of Olives. It is difficult to see in the dark, but the BYU Jerusalem Center can be seen on the very left close to the top of the hill. On the lower right of the photo is the traditional setting of the Garden of Gethsemane.

While the "light of the sun" rises in east every morning over the Mount of the Olives, we know in the not to distant future that the "Light of the SON" will descend upon this mountain in the east. This mount of Olives has been and will be one of the most sacred places on this earth. The Lord has descended below all things on this mount, and then ascended above all things. He will descend again in His glory as "a light shall breaking forth among them that sit in darkness."
