Posts Tagged ‘false prophet’

Today we’re looking at a false prophecy in the Book of Mormon. Even though the Church has told us the BoM isn’t necessarily an historical fact, they keep claiming Joseph Smith is prophesied about in its narrative.

The BoM also tells us Smith’s  lineage is found in a line of Jews not mentioned in the Bible. Although the Church doesn’t believe the Bible has been translated correctly, the part about Joseph of Egypt is apparently okay.

Now, if this isn’t confusing enough, wait, there’s more. Here’s how the this thing plays itself out.

A Young Folk’s History of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, pp.11, 13;

The enemy is the evil one, the devil …who mixed his lies with Christ’s truths, until in time the pure gospel was not to be found on the earth.

This was the condition of the world for hundreds of years. Then the Lord wished to restore the true gospel and … moved upon Columbus to discover this land of America… and good men whom you have read about in your American history: Washington, Jefferson, Franklin, and many others. … and the Lord himself came from heaven, also his servants Moroni, Peter, James, and John to bring the glad tidings to all who live on the earth.

Then the Lord called some more servants …The first and greatest of these servants is known by the name of Joseph Smith, the Prophet.

Though Joseph did not get much of an education at school, yet he was a great student ; and then God became his teacher, so that before he died, as you will see, he became one of the most learned men in the world.”

TodayinMormonHistory.com; “July 27, 1842 – Joseph Smith receives a revelation giving the words of a polygamous marriage ceremony. The words were used by Newel K. Whitney to seal his 17-year-old daughter Sarah Ann to Joseph Smith the same day. Newell is promised that the marriage will bring eternal life to his household, including his posterity. Sarah is given to Joseph, but Joseph is not given to Sarah. The same practice occurs in sealing ceremonies in the temple today. The ceremony invokes ancient priesthood lines, which will ‘concentrate’ through their posterity. The mention of posterity indicates the marriage was to produce children. The ceremony concludes sealing eternal life on Joseph and Sarah.” – Wilford Woodruff’s Journal: 1833-1898 Typescript, Volumes 1-9, Edited by Scott G. Kenney, Signature Books 1993, http://amzn.to/newmormonstudies

Teachings of Spencer W. Kimball, p. 20; “He himself [Jesus] specialized in character engineering, to make men, human masterpieces. He took a Peter and made a Saint. He took a Saul and made a Paul. And he took you and me and he will make of us gods if we will comply and follow along. What a picture! So terrible and yet so sublime.”

Acts 20:28-30; “Take heed therefore unto yourselves, and to all the flock, over the which the Holy Ghost hath made you overseers, to feed the church of God, which he hath purchased with his own blood. 29 For I know this, that after my departing shall grievous wolves enter in among you, not sparing the flock. 30 Also of your own selves shall men arise, speaking perverse things, to draw away disciples after them.”

ZOHAR is our topic for today.

Do you know what it is?

At Joseph Smith’s last General Conference, he delivered his infamous ‘King Follett Discourse’. This of course was the funeral sermon for one of their devoted members, King Follett, who passed away unexpectedly.

After giving the perfunctory condolences like at any funeral, Smith wasted no time introducing his true agenda to the growing group of followers. Polytheism. From that point on the entire belief structure of Mormonism was changed – again. This sermon, delivered on April 7, 1844, was a game changer for all things Mormon as it marched the Saints further down the road of total depravity in their self-induced apostasy.

Today is the day in Mormon history where all members of the LDS Church stop to remember their founder, Joseph Smith, Jr.

Today’s date in the annals of Mormonism is as important to them as the birth of Christ, and Joe Smith’s birth.

Several years ago Kirk and I went on a couple of missions trips to Nauvoo, and Carthage, Illinois.

The production they display for their founder is something to behold if you ever have the opportunity to visit there. While they have the huge Miracle Pageant they put on a massive stage with dozens of actors, there’s also other little noteworthy side trips to see.
