On September 22 and 23, 1832, Joseph Smith prophesied of a temple in Missouri, which would be built in his generation and dedicated by him also. It is written, “A revelation of Jesus Christ unto his servant Joseph Smith, Jun., and six elders, as they united their hearts and lifted their voices on high. Yea, the word of the Lord concerning his church, established in the last days for the restoration of his people, as he has spoken by the mouth of his prophets, and for the gathering of his saints to stand upon Mount Zion, which shall be the city of New Jerusalem. Which city shall be built, beginning at the temple lot, which is appointed by the finger of the Lord, in the western boundaries of the State of Missouri, and dedicated by the hand of Joseph Smith, Jun., and others with whom the Lord was well pleased. 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.” (Doctrines and Covenants 84:2-4) Did this happen? No. Has it happened since then? No.
Jesus did not reveal anything about the Missouri temple to Joseph Smith, but Satan. Speaking of a temple in New Jerusalem, there is no temple in its midst according to Revelation. “And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.” (Revelation 21:2) “And I saw no temple therein: for the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb are the temple of it.” (Revelation 21:22) This is just one of Joseph Smith’s false prophecies. Speaking of this false prophet, it is written, “but the prophet, which shall presume to speak a word in my name, which I have not commanded him to speak, or that shall speak in the name of other gods, even that prophet shall die. And if thou say in thine heart, How shall we know the word which the Lord hath not spoken? When a prophet speaketh in the name of the Lord, if the thing follow not, nor come to pass, that is the thing which the Lord hath not spoken, but the prophet hath spoken it presumptuously: thou shalt not be afraid of him.” (Deuteronomy 18:20-22) Therefore, don’t trust Joseph or the Mormon cult. Amen.
Let us pray:
Oh Lord, I pray that people will be aware of the false prophets in the world today. Their false teachings are toxic, and the sad thing is, their false witnesses are everywhere. Not only are they acting as if they are Christians by knocking on doors and sharing a supposed gospel message, although nothing they say is from You. I am speaking of the Mormons and their false witnesses/missionaries. Lord, the reason why they cannot get along with Christians and our true beliefs is that their beliefs are extra-Biblical and contradict what You have said countless times in the Bible. This is so evident when I ask these lost people to give me their message for the day. They speak of eternal families/marriages, exaltation to godhood, temple buildings for today, their pride and joy Book of Mormon, and so much more. This is all ridiculous and not Biblical. Therefore, I rebuke them and their false teachings in Your Name, Jesus. Lord, do what You have done in times past. Cause these lost people to stumble and fall. Give them up unto confusion until they are broken. Then will they come to You. I love You, Jesus. Amen.
