Doctrine and Covenants 107:48-52 “Enoch was twenty-five years old when he was ordained under the hand of Adam; and he was sixty-five and Adam blessed him 49 And he saw the Lord, and he walked with him, and was before his face continually; and he walked with God three hundred and sixty-five years, making him four hundred and thirty years old when he was translated. 50 Methuselah was one hundred years old when he was ordained under the hand of Adam. 51 Lamech was thirty-two years old when he was ordained under the hand of Seth. 52 Noah was ten years old when he was ordained under the hand of Methuselah.” (more…)

Teachings of the Prophet Joseph Smith, pp. 340-41 “I have asked of the Lord concerning His coming; and while asking the Lord, He gave a sign and said, “In the days of Noah I set a bow in the heavens as a sign and token that in any year that the bow should be seen the Lord would not come; but there should be seed time and harvest during that year; but whenever you see the bow withdrawn, it shall be a token that there shall be famine, pestilence, and great distress among the nations, and that the coming of the Messiah is not far distant.”” — April 2, 1843

“But refuse profane and old wives’ fables, and exercise thyself rather unto godliness.” 1 Timothy 4:7

 The LDS Church claims that in 1847 Brigham Young declared, ‘This is the place’, meaning the Church had found its new forever home in the western end of the Rockies known as the ‘Wasatch Front’.

From the onset of their arrival, the truth about their polygamous ways were preached from the pulpit. Along with the false prophecy of the ‘New and Everlasting Covenant’, came other false prophecies.

Today we’re looking at the anniversary of Brigham’s infamous explanation, and his addition to Joe Smith’s false prophecy of planets, stars, and the moon’s inhabitants. (more…)

Lectures on Faith, 62 “The whole visible creation, as it now exists, is the effect of faith. It was faith by which it was framed, and it is by the power of faith that it continues in its organized form, and by which the planets move round their orbits and sparkle forth their glory.” — Joseph Smith (more…)

Lectures on Faith, p. 93 “Shem was Melchizedek… From this definite account of driving the “nations apart, when the ancient hills did bow,” all reflecting minds may judge that man was scattered over the whole face of the earth. And with the superior knowledge of men like Noah, Shem (who was Melchizedek) and Abraham, the father of the faithful, three cotemporaries, holding the keys of the highest order of the priesthood: connecting the creation, and fall; memorising the righteousness of Enoch; and glorying in the construction of the ark for the salvation of a world; still retaining the model and pattern of that ark, than which a great, ah, we might say, half so great a vessel has never been built since; for another ark, be it remembered, with such a ponderous living freight will never be prepared as a vessel of mercy by command of Jehovah. Times and Seasons, Vol. 5, p. 746. Nauvoo, Illinois, December 15, 1844. Elder John Taylor, Editor.)” (more…)

2 Nephi 9:41 “O then, my beloved brethren, come unto the Lord, the Holy One. Remember that his paths are righteous. Behold, the way for man is narrow, but it lieth in a straight course before him, and the keeper of the gate is the Holy One of Israel; and he employeth no servant there; and there is none other way save it be by the gate; for he cannot be deceived, for the Lord God is his name.” (more…)

The Joseph Smith Revelations “#22. The text in the journal says that Smith also saw Michael in this vision. Prior to this time, it was taught that Michael was another name for Adam. Oliver Cowdery wrote in a letter in January 1834, “I have been in formed from a proper source that the Angel Michael is no less than our father Adam” (Cowdery to John Whitmer, 1 Jan. 1834, Oliver Cowdery Letterbook, 15, Henry E. Huntington Library, San Marino, California).” — by H. Michael Marquardt (more…)

Doctrine and Covenants 132:34 “God commanded Abraham, and Sarah gave Hagar to Abraham to wife. And why did she do it? Because this was the law; and from Hagar sprang many people. This, therefore, was fulfilling, among other things, the promises.” (more…)

Alma 7:10 “And behold, he shall be born of Mary, at Jerusalem which is the land of our forefathers, she being a virgin, a precious and chosen vessel, who shall be overshadowed and conceive by the power of the Holy Ghost, and bring forth a son, yea, even the Son of God.” (more…)

 Today we’re looking at the confusion Joe Smith caused when he attempted to rewrite God’s perfect, holy word. As you’ll see in the Church’s history below, chaos ruled. If he had embraced truth, he would’ve rejoiced over Isaiah 40:8

“The grass withereth, the flower fadeth: But the word of our God shall stand for ever.”

Instead, Mr. Smith claimed God revealed to him, and Sidney Rigdon in 1832 they needed to focus on rewriting the Bible.

Ensign, ‘Joseph Smith, the Mighty Prophet of the Restoration,’ May 1976, p. 94 “As to this man, Joseph Smith, let us say – Here is a man who was chosen before he was born, who was numbered with the noble and great in the councils of eternity before the foundations of this world were laid. “Along with Adam and Enoch and Noah and Abraham, he sat in council with the Gods when the plans were made to create an earth whereon the hosts of our Father’s children might dwell. “Under the direction of the Holy One and of Michael, who became the first man, he participated in the creative enterprises of the Father.” — Bruce R. McConkie (more…)

Doctrines of Salvation 3:239 “HEBER C. KIMBALL TELLS OF DEATH OF ZELPH. Elder Heber C. Kimball who was present recorded the following in his journal: “While on our way we felt anxious to know who the person was who had been killed by that arrow. It was made known to Joseph that he had been an officer who fell in battle, in the last destruction among the Lamanites, and his name was Zelph. This caused us to rejoice much, to think that God was so mindful of us as to show these things to his servant. Brother Joseph had inquired of the Lord, and it was made known in a vision.”” — Joseph Fielding Smith (more…)

Quest for Refuge, p 165“I shall have a son born to me, and his name shall be David; and on him, in some future time, will rest the responsibility that now rests upon me. (Unpublished sermon of Brigham Young, 7 Oct. 1863, Young papers.)” – Marvin S. Hill

Words of Joseph Smith, p 331 “A murderer; for instance one that sheds innocent Blood Cannot have forgiveness, David sought repentance at the hand of God Carefully with tears, but he could ownly get it through Hell, he got a promise that his soul should not be left in Hell, Although David was a King he never did obtain the spirit & power of Elijah & the fulness of the Priesthood, & the priesthood that he received & the throne & kingdom of David is to be taken from him & given to another by the name of David in the last days, raised up out of his linage.” [sic] (more…)

“Then the Lord said unto me, The prophets prophesy lies in my name: I sent them not, neither have I commanded them, neither spake unto them: they prophesy unto you a false vision and divination, and a thing of nought, and the deceit of their heart.” Jeremiah 14:14

 The late prophet, Joseph Fielding Smith, boldly stated the Church must stand or fall on Smith’s story. He further proclaimed his uncle was either divinely called, or was one of the biggest frauds of this earth.

Today we’re looking at just one example of the fraud this man committed, and how leaders since that time continue to perpetuate his lies.

1954

Doctrines of Salvation 1:188 “CHURCH STANDS OR FALLS WITH JOSEPH SMITH. Mormonism, as it is called, must stand or fall on the story of Joseph Smith. He was either a prophet of God, divinely called, properly appointed and commissioned, or he was one of the biggest frauds this world has ever seen. There is no middle ground.” — Joseph Fielding Smith, 1954-1956 (more…)

Like many things in Mormonism, a grain of truth is usually mixed in with lies. Case in point today is the one verse in Doctrine & Covenants below. They’ve attached links to key words inside the verse leading readers to faraway lands that contradict their own tenets, and has nothing to do with what you just read.

All that aside, we’re taking a look at the contradiction Joe Smith obviously inserted into his sacred prophecies. The other side trips they take you on will be explored at another time. We’ve left them intact here to show the rabbit trails they take readers on.

Doctrine and Covenants 130:11 “And a white stone is given to each of those who come into the celestial kingdom, whereon is a new name written, which no man knoweth save he that receiveth it. The new name is the key word.” (more…)

 Journal of Discourses 6:6; “We say that God himself is a self-existent being. Who told you so? It is correct enough; but how did it get into your heads? Who told you that man did not exist in like manner upon the same principle? Man  does exist upon the same principles. God made a tabernacle and put a spirit into it, and it became a living soul. [Referred to the old Bible.] How does it read in the Hebrew? It does not say in the Hebrew that God created the spirit of man. It says, “God made man out of the earth, and put into him Adam’s spirit, and so became a living body.

The mind or the intelligence which man possesses is coequal with God himself. I know that my testimony is true…” – Joseph Smith, Nauvoo, April 6, 1844

‘But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed. 9 As we said before, so say I now again, If any man preach any other gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him be accursed.’ Galatians 1:8-9

 The following is the infamous false Quakers on the Moon prophecy. There are a couple of interesting items of note in its context you may not know about – I know I didn’t!

The Young Woman’s Journal Vol. 3, No. 6, March 1892, pp. 263-264 “Astronomers and philosophers have, from time almost immemorial until very recently, asserted that the moon was uninhabited, that it had no atmosphere, etc. But recent discoveries, through the means of powerful telescopes, have given scientists a doubt or two upon the old theory. Nearly all the great discoveries of men in the last half century have, in one way or another, either directly or indirectly, contributed to prove Joseph Smith to be a Prophet.

As far back as 1837, I know that he said the moon was inhabited by men and women the same as this earth, and that they lived to a greater age than we do — that they live generally to near the age of a 1000 years. He described the men as averaging near six feet in height, and dressing quite uniformly in something near the Quaker style.

In my patriarchal blessing, given by the father of Joseph the Prophet, in Kirtland, 1837, I was told that I should preach the gospel before I was 21 years of age; that I should preach the gospel to the inhabitants upon the islands of the sea, and — to the inhabitants of the moon, even the planet you can now behold with your eyes.” — Oliver Boardman Huntington (more…)

There are times in life when we become aware the Lord is orchestrating events around us, and this becomes even more apparent when we start walking with Him.

Today we’re looking at a number of verses in His word where God reveals He resides inside His believers. No doubt, for each verse listed below there are numerous others!

For the sake of time and space, we’ve listed but a few of the times God reassures us that He lives inside of us. What comfort this has brought me countless times!

The flipside of this is the tragedy when some people don’t have the same luxury because they’ve bought into lies of others in whom they’ve placed their trust.

The Mormons, my beloved people, have done just that by following a man who decided to hate the Bible, and therefore, God Himself as well. It’s clear in the writings of his own prophecies from a false god his goal was to lead people away from the Lord, not to Him.

I was reminded of how empty my everyday life was before I became a Christian after speaking with my mother not long ago. Long story short, she obviously wasn’t aware Jesus could calm her rattled nerves during times of distress. Oh be still my heart…

We thought it’d be good to have a few verses on hand to share with your Mormon friends/loved ones. Be sure to point out how often God reassures us of His Holy Spirit residing inside of us – and remember beloved – unbelievers can already see there’s something different in your life compared to their own.

Above all things, we pray it brings Him glory, and the Mormon people will come to a saving knowledge of Christ Jesus, and Him crucified.

Be blessed! (more…)
