Joseph Smith claimed to have a revelation from the Lord concerning the Civil War in 1832. The details of this prophecy did not come to pass and is false. It reads, “verily, thus saith the Lord concerning the wars that will shortly come to pass, beginning at the rebellion of South Carolina, which will eventually terminate in the death and misery of many souls; And the time will come that war will be poured out upon all nations, beginning at this place. For behold, the Southern States shall be divided against the Northern States, and the Southern States will call on other nations, even the nation of Great Britain, as it is called, and they shall also call upon other nations, in order to defend themselves against other nations; and then war shall be poured out upon all nations.” (Doctrines and Covenants 87:1-3) This war was between the northern and southern states, as well as certain countries. However, this war was not poured out upon all nations and is a false prophecy. A true prophet would not give such ridiculous claims.
“The American Civil War (April 12, 1861 – May 26, 1865; also known by other names) was a civil war in the United States. It was fought between the United States (the Union[f] or “the North”) and the Confederacy (“the South”).” (American Civil War) “During the American Civil War people from many countries fought for either the Union or Confederacy. They included immigrants from all over Europe including Scandinavia, Germany, France and Hungary. Men from the United Kingdom also fought in the conflict, the vast majority on the Union side.” (The Englishmen Who Fought in the American Civil War) Now concerning Joseph Smith and his false prophesy, It is said. “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 18:22) This is one of many false prophecies by the mouth of Joseph Smith. This makes him a false prophet. Amen.
Let us pray:
Oh Lord, I pray that it would become easier to get through to the Mormon people at large. The majority of them don’t have any desire to talk to Christians about their faith. They are very closed off to the truth that preaching is the only way that most people in their cult will ever hear Your truth. Thank You, Lord, for this last mission trip to Utah. Through Your hand, we handed out tracts and different handouts to hundreds of people, and had our divine encounters when talking one on one. But, Lord, It is sad to see most people closed off. Even the LDS missionaries are so scared to talk to real Christians. We tried to engage with countless numbers of these young people, and each one of them gave their own excuses for why they couldn’t talk. Lord, you have given me this wisdom, that Mormons like to prey on the weak and not even deal with people who are already firm in their faith. This is why these lost souls so easily believe in their false teachings and don’t even know better. I rebuke the lies of the Mormon cult. These people need to repent and come to You before it is too late. I love You, Jesus. I trust in You. Amen.
