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seen the Lord would not come; but there should be seed time and harvest during that year; but whenever you see the bow withdrawn, it shall be a token that there shall be famine, pestilence, and great distress among the nations, and that the coming of the Messiah is not far distant.””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

Mormon Decisions 10Doctrine and Covenants 84:4-5; “Revelation given through Joseph Smith the Prophet, at Kirtland, Ohio, September 22 and 23, 1832…Verily this is the word of the Lord, that the city New Jerusalem shall be built by the gathering of the saints, beginning at this place, even the place of the temple, which temple shall be reared in this generation. 5 For verily this generation shall not all pass away until an house shall be built unto the Lord, and a cloud shall rest upon it, which cloud shall be even the glory of the Lord, which shall fill the house.”

Psalm 6:5; “For in death there is no remembrance of thee: in the grave who shall give thee thanks?”

People in my family have been blessed with long lives. In fact when anyone dies before the age of 90, their comments are always the same; ‘Oh, they died so young!’. I always have to laugh at their reactions, but I’m less than amused when I see Smith’s false prophecies like this one today.

As of June 2015, it’s been 183 years since he uttered this false prophecy! Who do you know that’s living today and was alive in 1832?

Let’s look at the lies in this one false prophecy –

1.’The city New Jerusalem shall be built by the gathering of the saints, beginning at this place…’

As noted above, those who were living then are long gone today. They didn’t build the new Jerusalem.

2.One year into his prophet-hood Smith pronounced his 50th false prophecy. No temple was built in MO before Smith died in 1844. For more info on this see article 120+ False Prophecies of Joseph Smith here.

3.‘…a cloud shall rest upon it, which cloud shall be even the glory of the Lord, which shall fill the house…’

God’s presence is not in a cloud. His Spirit resides inside each person who calls Him Lord – John 14:16-18God’s presence in a cloud is from the OT era, not now.

4.In addition to the above info, we’re also wondering why they’re building temples to perform works for the dead in light of what God says in His word?

Mormon Decisions 10The Evening and the Morning Star, Vol. II, No. 14, July 1833, pg. 105; “When, therefore, any man, no matter who, or how high his standing may be, utter, or publishes, any thing that afterwards proves to be untrue, he is a false prophet”.

120+ False Prophecies of Joseph Smith

Isaiah 8:20; “To the law and to the testimony: if they speak not according to this word, it is because there is no light in them.”

D&C 132:13-14; “And everything that is in the world, whether it be ordained of men, by thrones, or principalities, or powers, or things of name, whatsoever they may be, that are not by me or by my word, saith the Lord, shall be thrown down, and shall not remain after men are dead, neither in nor after the resurrection, saith the Lord your God. 14 For whatsoever things remain are by me; and whatsoever things are not by me shall be shaken and destroyed.”

Growing up in Mormonism you’re taught from an early age the importance of having a testimony of Joseph Smith and the Church. While I recall many times being taught that loving Jesus was crucial as well, the overriding theme was certainly ensuring our loyalties were to be rooted in our heritage and its founder.

Even after I left Mormonism it never occurred to me just how deceptive Smith was until I continued the in-depth research I began before my exodus. The pedestal I had placed Smith on had obviously taken the place of any honor I should have placed on the Lord.
