FAILED PROPHECIES: The Prophet-less JS …
LDS faithful immediately know you’re mentioning Joseph Smith when you speak the two words “The Prophet.” Yet, we’re hard-pressed to find a singular fulfilled prediction by this charlatan.
This unfulfilled prophecy of Joseph Smith is 200 years old…
NEW YORK WILL BE DESTROYED: “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. For if they do reject these things the hour of their judgment is nigh, and their house shall be left unto them desolate” (D&C 84:114-115).
Newell K. Whitney and Joseph Smith went to New York, Albany, and Boston and preached there. These cities did not accept the gospel.
They have not been destroyed. In fact, the populations (as of 2019) are approximately: New York City/8 million+, Albany/98,000+, Boston/690,000+. To say these cities have actually flourished since 1832 would be an understatement.
