Information about the audio download Joseph Smith: A True Prophet of God
In Joseph Smith: A True Prophet of God the author of the LDS classic best-seller The Prophecies of Joseph Smith relates many interesting prophecies and historical items.
He begins by summarizing Joseph’s uniquely significant accomplishments in 17 different roles: revelator, church organizer and religious leader, educator, author, editor, historian, translator, Bible scholar, teacher, philosopher, city planner, architect, civic and political leader, military leader, economist, scientist, and humanitarian.
Then, during this powerful presentation, he demonstrates that Joseph Smith was truly a prophet called by God by quoting numerous prophecies which Joseph made and then showing how those prophecies received complete and literal fulfillment.
Examples are quoted of Joseph foretelling the actions of his associates, prophesying of the U.S. Civil War and other future wars, and prophecies of future political events which came to pass during his lifetime. Joseph prophesied of the glorious pentecostal events which took place in the early days of the Kirtland Temple.
He even foretold the occurrence of great natural phenomena such as the great night of falling stars. Joseph’s prophecies of the Mormon migration to the West are recalled, and he foresaw the church’s establishment and remarkable growth in the Rocky Mountains and throughout North and South America.
Joseph’s detailed prophecies concerning his approaching martyrdom are reported in detail.
The information reported in Joseph Smith: A True Prophet of God bears strong witness that Joseph Smith truly was a prophet of God and that he was the instrument in God’s hands to restore the gospel and church of Jesus Christ in these latter days.
