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…
PROPHECY ABOUT THOMAS MARSH: 23 July 1837. See D&C 112:3-11. Revelation to Thomas B. Marsh, then the president of the quorum of the Twelve Apostles, prophesying that he would be “exalted” that he would preach to Jews and Gentiles “unto the ends of the earth” “among the mountains, and among many nations.” Marsh is told that “by thy word many high ones shall be brought low, and … many low ones shall be exalted.” In verse 11, Marsh is told that “I [God] know thy heart.”
Twenty months later, on 17 March 1839, Marsh was excommunicated.
Apparently, God did not know his heart.
Marsh never preached the Mormon gospel as was prophesied but was a bitter enemy of the church for many years. He later repented and rejoined the church, but this prophecy was never fulfilled.
