Paul wrote that the second coming would not occur until the following two things occurred:

  1. Falling away first
  2. That man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition "that sitteth in the Temple of God and is worshipped as God".  Thus saith the Lord, only the Mormon people may fulfill this, because they are the only ones building Temples, and had the Melchizedek Priesthood, which on the one hand qualifies one to become a son of God or, on the other hand, a son of perdition by breaking the oath and covenant of the Priesthood:
     41 But whoso breaketh this covenant after he hath received it, and altogether turneth therefrom, shall not have forgiveness of sins in this world nor in the world to come.D&C  84:41)
"Thus saith the Lord unto those prophets in Israel that berate and grind upon the faces of my people, saith the Lord, I shall consume thee with the brightness of my appearing as I the Lord God of Israel whom ye know not, did speak in that day when I moved upon my servant as he is known among men, Paul to write unto them who comprised my Saints in those days: that they be not soon shaken in mind nor troubled that my day, that the day of mine advent upon the earth at this time, be at hand until that man of sin be revealed, yea that son of perdition that sitteth in the Temple of God and who opposeth and exalteth himself with great swelling words above all that is called god,
2 Yea thus saith the Lord God of Isaiah, ye berate and grind and say sin where there is none, piercing the humble with much sorrow when I will that they should be made glad,  The Revelations of Jesus Christ, Section 31.
