  1. One nugget that we learn from the 116 lost pages is that Ishmael was form the tribe of Ephraim.
  2. If there was one CoC asset that I would want the most, it would be the Red Brick Store in Nauvoo. Along with the Kirtland Temple, that site may be the most important historical site due to the events that occurred in that building.
  3. There is also the prophecy of the Lord's appearance to the Jews at the Mount of Olives during the Armageddon events. So the specific appearances that are mentioned include the appearance at Adam-ondi-Ahman, The New Jerusalem Temple, the Mount of Olives and then the Lord's coming in glory. https://archive.org/stream/MStarVol21/MStar_Vol_21#page/n596/mode/1up http://LDSLastDays.com
  4. The Lord Preaching His own Sermons

    D&C 84:114-115 114 Nevertheless, let the bishop go unto the city of New York, also to the city of Albany, and also to the city of Boston, and warn the people of those cities with the sound of the gospel, with a loud voice, of the desolation and utter abolishment which await them if they do reject these things. 115 For if they do reject these things the hour of their judgment is nigh, and their house shall be left unto them desolate. INSTITUTE LESSON MANUAL, D&C - SECTION 84 [W]hile you stand in the towers of the Temple and your eyes survey this glorious valley filled with cities and villages, occupied by tens of thousands of Latter-day Saints, you will then call to mind this visitation of President Young and his company. You will say: That was in the days when Presidents Benson and Maughan presided over us; that was before New York was destroyed by an earthquake; it was before Boston was swept into the sea, by the sea heaving itself beyond its bounds; it was before Albany was destroyed by fire; yea, at that time you will remember the scenes of this day. Treasure them up and forget them not.' President Young followed and said: 'What Brother Woodruff has said is revelation and will be fulfilled.' JD, B YOUNG 8:30 "Do you think there is calamity abroad now among the people?" Not much. All we have yet heard and all we have experienced is scarcely a preface to the sermon that is going to be preached. When the testimony of the Elders ceases to be given, and the Lord says to them, "Come home; I will now preach my own sermons to the nations of the earth," all you now know can scarcely be called a preface to the sermon that will be preached with fire and sword, tempests, earthquakes, hail, rain, thunders and lightnings, and fearful destruction. What matters the destruction of a few railway cars? You will hear of magnificent cities, now idolized by the people, sinking in the earth, entombing the inhabitants. The sea will heave itself beyond its bounds, engulfing mighty cities. Famine will spread over the nations, and nation will rise up against nation, kingdom against kingdom, and states against states, in our own country and in foreign lands; and they will destroy each other, caring not for the blood and lives of their neighbors, of their families, or for their own lives. http://www.LDSLastDays.com/Boston-New-York-and-Albany-Destroyed

    Others declare that these prophecies can never be understood until they are fulfilled. If this be the case, then we can never escape the judgments predicted in them, but must continue the children of darkness, until they come upon us unawares and sweep us from the earth. Then where will be the consolation in looking back and seeing them fulfilled? But blessed be God, he has told us by the mouth of Daniel that many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased, and that the wise shall understand, but none of the wicked shall understand. (Daniel 12:4, 10) And now, I would ask, who are more wicked than the wilfully blind leaders of the blind, who tell us we cannot understand the scriptures? (Parley P. Pratt, A Voice of Warning, 1847, pp. 40)
  6. The Lord Preaching His own Sermons

    Why is it that the Latter-day Saints are perfectly calm and serene among all the convulsions of the earth--the turmoils, strife, war, pestilence, famine, and distress of nations? It is because the spirit of prophecy has made known to us that such things would actually transpire upon the earth. We understand it, and view it in its true light. We have learned it by the visions of the Almighty (President Jedediah M. Grant, JD 2:147)

  9. Brother Smith,

    Can you share with me your foundation for your belief in transmission?  Do you believe all life was transmitted from another sphere and then had evolution within species?  Do you believe man was placed on earth as Adam or do you believe there were pre-Adamites that evolved to Adam?

    I believe that Adam was the son of God as is referenced in the scriptures so I guess what would lend itself to transmission.


    22 And this is the genealogy of the sons of Adam, who was the son of God, with whom God, himself, conversed

    (Moses 6:22)

    I believe in evolution but not that man evolved from apes, not sure on the current terminology for that belief.

    Any help you can give me is appreciated.





  10. Emma and Mother's Day

    What makes you think that she lost her way? Because she remained in Nauvoo, did not make the trek to remain with the Saints, and married Bidamon?
  11. Abraham - Facsimile 1 Uniqueness

    Refer to my response to CA Steve.
  12. Abraham - Facsimile 1 Uniqueness

    The main point that I was making is that the reclined figure does not appear to be flat on the lion couch since the legs of the priest are between the couch and "Abraham."
  13. Abraham - Facsimile 1 Uniqueness

    I think this gives additional support that the reclining figure is alive.
  14. I was just reading some sources on what is unique about the facsimile 1 versus other lion couch scenes. We know that other lion couch scenes seem to represent an embalming or resurrection scene. I read what was in fairmormon.org the following: • The original of Facsimile 1 shows the couch behind the priest's legs, and the reclining figure's legs are shown in front of the priest's. The figure was transferred on to the woodcut prior to publication in the Times and Seasons. The wood cut attempted to correct this odd perspective by placing the legs of the priest behind the lion couch. https://www.fairmormon.org/answers/Book_of_Abraham/Joseph_Smith_Papyri/Facsimiles/Facsimile_1 Any thoughts on the significance of this particular difference? Thanks, MD

    I would just quote the brethren on this rather than you making your own comment. By quoting the brethren you add emphasis that it is not your just your own thoughts but that you are sustaining the brethren in their words they have shared on this topic.
