“Our Consuming Mission,” Address to CES Religious Educators, 5 February 1999 “[T]he Second Coming has been in process at least since 1820, beginning on a lovely spring morning in a sacred grove in Palmyra, New York. We have been in one phase or another, then, of the Second Coming for at least 179 years, with sacred appearances of the Savior all along that calendar, some of them recorded but most of them not.” — Jeffrey R. Holland
Ephesians 4:14 “That we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive”.
Matthew 24:36-39 “But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only. But as the days of Noe were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark, And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.”
We’re taking a look at this LDS reference because of the obvious problem it presents. It’s unknown if Mr. Holland has ever thought about Jesus’ warning, however, it’d behoove him and everyone else to give heed.
If there was any doubt Mr. Holland was/is a false apostle, this should clear up any questions. There is nothing in the Bible that remotely suggests Jesus’ 2nd coming commenced in 1820. Moreover, this is the epitome of false prophecies!
Pray for Mormons to question this man’s teachings, and the Church as well!
With Love in Christ;
