False Prophecies

Embarrassing False prophecies of the Mormon Church

(Mat 24:11 KJV)  And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many.

Men on the Moon  - Joseph Smith

“The inhabitants of the moon are more of a uniform size than the inhabitants of the earth, being about 6 feet in height. They dress very much like the quaker style and are quite general in style, or the fashion of dress.
     They live to be very old; coming, generally, near a thousand years.
This is the description of them as given by Joseph the seer, and he could see whatever he asked the father in the name of Jesus to see.”
(Journal of Oliver B. Huntington, Vol. 3 Pg. 166)

The Mormon Church continued to teach that there were inhabitants on the moon as late as 1892 in a church publication “The Young Woman's Journal, Vol. 3.”

The Moon and Sun inhabited - Brigham Young

“Who can tell us of the inhabitants of this little planet that shines of an evening, called the moon? … When you inquire about the inhabitants of that sphere you find that the most learned are as ignorant in regard to them as the most ignorant of their fellows. So it is with regard to the inhabitants of the sun. Do you think it is inhabited? I rather think that it is. Do you think there is any life there? No question of it; it was not made in vain. It was made to give light to those who dwell upon it, and to other planets; and so will this earth when it is celestialized.”
(Journal of Discourses 13:271 July 24, 1870)

Jesus would return in 1891 - Joseph Smith

February 14, 1835
“President Smith then stated that the meeting had been called, because God had commanded it; and it was made known to him by vision and by the Holy Spirit. He then gave a revelation of some circumstances attending us while journeying to Zion .. our trial, sufferings; and said God had not designed all this for nothing, but He had it in remembrance yet; and it was the will of God that those who went to Zion, with a determination to lay down their lives, if necessary, should be ordained to the ministry, and go forth to prune the vineyard for the Last time, or the coming of the Lord, which was nigh - even fifty - six years would wind up the scene.”
(History of the Church  Vol. 2 pg. 182)

 Who is Joseph Smith?

   Smith was born in Sharon, Vt., on Dec. 23, 1805.

On March 20, 1826, Joseph Smith was found guilty of fraud in Bainbridge, N.Y. He had been selling his services by claiming to find buried treasure through the use of a “seer stone.”  When he failed to produce for several of his customers, he was convicted as an imposter.

In 1827, according to his own account, Smith was directed by an angel to a hill near Manchester, N.Y. There he dug up golden plates on which (he claims) was written a history of the American Indians. Smith translated the tablets as the 'Book of Mormon' and published it in 1830. Non-Mormon scholars regard the book as a collection of Indian legends, fragments of Smith's autobiography, and religious and political controversies of the time.

   On April 6, 1830, Smith founded his church at Fayette, N.Y., as a restoration of the original Christian faith. The following year he and his converts moved to Kirtland, Ohio. Then in 1838 they went to western Missouri before settling in Nauvoo, Ill., in 1839. There the church developed into a local power, though there was considerable friction with non-Mormons especially over the practice of polygamy, or multiple marriage. Smith may have had as many as 84 wives. Nauvoo, with its 20,000 Mormons, was then the largest town in Illinois. Smith served as mayor and commanded the local militia. In 1844 Smith announced his candidacy for the presidency of the United States. Mormon dissenters attacked him in their newspaper. He ordered their press destroyed. He and his brother Hyrum were then jailed in Carthage, Ill. On June 27 a mob stormed the jail and murdered both brothers, but not before Joseph killed two men and wounded another with smuggled guns.
Smith was declared a martyr by the Mormons. He was succeeded by Brigham Young.

Joseph Smith, a Mason, implimented the Mormon Temple Rituals after the Masonic Lodge.

On March 15, 1842 Joseph Smith became a Mason in his general business office (History of the Church, vol. 4, pg. 551)

When did Joseph Smith instruct the other LDS Church leaders regarding the endowment and communication of key?

On May 4, 1842 Joseph Smith instructed the other LDS Church leaders on the principles and order of the Priesthood, attending to the washings, anointing, endowments and communication of keys. (History of the Church, vol. 5, pg. 2) This instruction took place only weeks after Joseph Smith became a Mason and in Joseph Smith's business office, the exact same place where he received the Masonic rites just weeks earlier. In addition, Joseph Smith's business office was the Masonic lodge room. Joseph Smith's temple records even indicate that he received his endowments on May 4, 1842 (Family Group Sheet-Father Temple Index Bureau).

Here is a link to a former Mormon who was threatened by Masons accusing him of revealing Masonic ritual secrets after he testified of the temple rituals in the Mormon church!

Joseph Smith was a Mason. His brother Hiram was a Mason. The first five presidents of the Mormon Church were Masons. The Mormon Masonic Lodge in Nauvoo, Illinois, was one of the largest Masonic lodges in the United States at the time. They had over fourteen hundred members in one lodge.

While visiting France in May of 2000, a wise young man spoke about his father, whom had left the Mormon church. He confidently told his son, “No prophet of God ever died with a gun in his hand!”

His statement was true!  Joseph Smith was NOT a prophet of God, but a deceiver and a false prophet, and finally a murderer.  

(Mat 24:11 KJV)  And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many.
