We are warned to not add or take away from the Book of Revelation. God’s Word is sacred and the events that are to take place in this book should never be tampered with, lest people see the wrath of God in this next life. So many people have done this already including Joseph Smith in Mormonism as you will learn very soon in this message. Jesus said, “for I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book: And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.” (Revelation 22:18-19) Did Joseph Smith care about this warning from God when he added the Bible in the Book of Mormon? Absolutely not. See for yourself, as you read the original verse in Revelation 22:11 and how it was changed…
The Bible Original:
“He that is unjust, let him be unjust still: and he which is filthy, let him be filthy still: and he that is righteous, let him be righteous still: and he that is holy, let him be holy still.” (Revelation 22:11)
The Book Of Mormon Plagiarism:
“And assuredly, as the Lord liveth, for the Lord God hath spoken it, and it is his eternal word, which cannot pass away, that they who are righteous shall be righteous still, and they who are filthy shall be filthy still; wherefore, they who are filthy are the devil and his angels; and they shall go away into everlasting fire, prepared for them; and their torment is as a lake of fire and brimstone, whose flame ascendeth up forever and ever and has no end.” (2 Nephi 9:16)
“And then cometh the judgment of the Holy One upon them; and then cometh the time that he that is filthy shall be filthy still; and he that is righteous shall be righteous still; he that is happy shall be happy still; and he that is unhappy shall be unhappy still.“ (Mormon 9:14)
Notice how in the original translation in Revelation, holy exists, but is removed from both verses in the Book of Mormon. So we see how a part of the verse is already removed. And what is added? Holy is replaced with happy, and the devil and angels are spoken of instead of people. This is what we call plagiarism in the Book of Mormon and also someone purposely adding to and removing from this prophecy in Revelation. So what is the outcome of Joseph Smith after death? First of all, he opened his eyes in hell. That is where he is being tormented in the flames of fire for deceiving millions of people. This is because his name was removed from the Book of Life as the plague in Revelation 22 mentioned. “And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death. And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.” (Revelation 20:14,15) Joseph Smith will soon be judged and be found guilty, and he and others will be cast into the lake of fire. Don’t follow in his footsteps. Amen.
