MORMONS TO DIVIDE AND CONQUER
The prophecy of D&C 111 in which Smith and his associates were promised they would have power over Salem and acquire gold
therefrom was simply another Mormon power play to divide and conquer. Apologists today in an attempt to delay fulfillment of the prophecy contend that the prophecy was not for Joseph's time but hundreds of years later. This flies in the face of everything Smith taught and claimed. The day was verily at hand.
Just months previously the Kirtland temple was dedicated. More revelation from Joseph Smith positively identifies the recipients of D&C 111 to be the same as those of D&C 110, the builders of the Kirtland temple:
110:6,7 wrote:Let the hearts of your brethren rejoice, and let the hearts of all my people rejoice, who have, with their might, built this house to my name.
For behold, I have accepted this house, and my name shall be here; and I will manifest myself to my people in mercy in this house.
Joseph Smith and the Latter Day Saints of his time are the same people in both revelations. But the prophecy failed. These people did not wrestle power from Salem or acquire its gold and silver.
