.:THE PROPHETS OF GOD – HEAVENLY FATHER REVEALS HIS GOSPEL TO ALL
- Joseph Smith’s Qualifications and his claim to be “God’s Prophet”
- John the Baptist and God’s Final Prophet
In the section entitled, “Heavenly Father Reveals His Gospel to All” under “The Restoration of Truth” of mormon.org, the website describes the concept that God’s people need prophets to lead them today as they did in the past. This idea is based on the Biblical Scripture of Amos 3:7 that states:
“Surely the Lord God will do nothing, but he revealeth his secret unto his servants the prophets.”
WHAT MORMON.ORG DOES NOT TELL YOU ABOUT GOD’S PROPHETS:
Joseph Smith’s false prophecies, his false teachings about God, and his polygamy disqualified him from being called as a Prophet of God to lead God’s Church. The Bible is clear that a true Prophet of God must have 100% accuracy in his predictions and teach accurate doctrine about the character and nature of the one true God. It also proclaims that any man who wishes to lead God’s Church today, must be the “husband of one wife” (1 Timothy 3:1; Titus 1:6). Joseph Smith failed all three of these tests with his false predictions recorded in Mormon Scripture, his false teachings about God not always being God and making Him into an exalted man, contrary to Biblical doctrine about God being a Spirit (John 4:24), who is not a man (Hosea 11:9; Numbers 23:19; Romans 1:23). He also failed the New Testament test of being a Christian leader when he married 33 additional women after marrying his first wife Emma.
John the Baptist was the last “prophet” to lead God’s people because Jesus became the supreme Prophet of God’s Church today. Biblical Scripture explains:
“God, who at sundry times and in divers manners spake in time past unto the fathers by the prophets, Hath in these last days spoken unto us by his Son, whom he hath appointed heir of all things. …” —Hebrews 1:1-2
“The law and the prophets were until John: since that time the kingdom of God is preached, and every man presseth into it.” —Luke 16:16
Since Jesus Christ is the only “Prophet” who leads God’s Church today, He is called the “head of the church” (Ephesians 5:23). He gives “personal revelation” of His will to each individual believer today through Bible reading, prayer and communion with God’s Holy Spirit (John 14:26).
