D&C 116: The Saints will meet the Savior at Adam-ondi-Ahman

Spring Hill is named by the Lord aAdam-ondi-Ahman, because, said he, it is the place where bAdam shall come to visit his people, or the Ancient of Days shall sit, as spoken of by Daniel the prophet. (D&C 116)

The Saints will one day converse with the Savior in Adam-ondi-Ahman.  It is reasonable to suppose that this will be in preparation for the final events preceding the events surrounding the Second Coming of Jesus Christ to all the world.  (See also D&C 27:5-14, D&C 107:53-56, Daniel 7:13-14, 22.)

Elder Bruce R. McConkie said:

Before the Lord Jesus descends openly and publicly in the clouds of glory, attended by all the hosts of heaven; before the great and dreadful day of the Lord sends terror and destruction from one end of the earth to the other; before he stands on Mount Zion, or sets his feet on Olivet, or utters his voice from an American Zion or a Jewish Jerusalem; before all flesh shall see him together; before any of his appearances, which taken together comprise the second coming of the Son of God—before all these, there is to be a secret appearance to selected members of his Church. He will come in private to his prophet and to the apostles then living. Those who have held keys and powers and authorities in all ages from Adam to the present will also be present. And further, all the faithful members of the Church then living and all the faithful saints of all the ages past will be present. It will be the greatest congregation of faithful saints ever assembled on planet earth. It will be a sacrament meeting. It will be a day of judgment for the faithful of all the ages. And it will take place in Daviess County, Missouri, at a place called Adam-ondi-Ahman.  (Bruce R. McConkie, The Millennial Messiah: The Second Coming of the Son of Man, 578.)
