What does Latter-Days Really Mean?

With the historic correction by President Nelson about removing Mormon and LDS as part of our vocabulary, it got me thinking about what the term Latter-Days, really means, I went back to the Old Testament to get some ideas.Numbers 24:14"And now, behold, I go unto my people: come therefore, and I will advertise thee what this people shall do to thy people in the latter days."Right after this is one of the greatest prophecies about the Savior:Numbers 24:17"I shall see him, but not now: I shall behold him, but not nigh: there shall come a Star out of Jacob, and...

Many years later going through a crisis of my faith. I...
