False Prophecies of Joseph Smith and the Twelve LDS Apostles

History of the Church 2:381-382;And I finally saw the Twelve in the celestial kingdom of God. I also beheld the redemption of Zion, and many things which the tongue of man cannot describe in full…Further Visions and Revelations.  The visions of heaven were opened to them also. Some of them saw the face of the Savior, and others were ministered unto by holy angels, and the spirit of prophecy and revelation was poured out in mighty power; and loud hosannas, and glory to God in the highest, saluted the heavens, for we all communed with the heavenly host. And I saw in my vision all of the Presidency in the celestial kingdom of God, and many others that were present.” – Joseph Smith, Thursday, January 21, 1836

This large section above tells us of a prophecy given by Joseph Smith in which he sees the twelve LDS apostles in heavenly glory.  However, if you dig a little deeper we learn that five of those apostles were ex-communicated from the fold!  Part of this revelation can also be found in D&C 88.

Lyman Johnson HC 3:20; “…and he was cut off from the Church.
Luke Johnson HC 2:528; “Apostasy in Kirtland.  I returned to Kirtland on or about the 10th of December. During my absence in Missouri Warren Parrish, John F. Boynton, Luke S. Johnson, Joseph Coe, and some others united together for the overthrow of the Church.”
William McLellin HC 3:31; “…he had no confidence in the heads of the Church, believing they had transgressed, and had got out of the way, consequently he quit praying and keeping the commandments of God, and indulged himself in his lustful desires…
William Smith HC 7:483;William Smith who has published a pamphlet against the Twelve was excommunicated from the church by unanimous vote.
Thomas Marsh HC 3:284; “…the following persons be excommunicated from the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, viz.: George M. Hinkle, Sampson Avard, John Corrill, Reed Peck, William W. Phelps, Frederick G. Williams, Thomas B. Marsh, Burr Riggs, and several others.

2 John 1:10-11; If there come any unto you, and bring not this doctrine, receive him not into your house, neither bid him God speed: 11 For he that biddeth him God speed is partaker of his evil deeds.

So we have to ask; did the apostles get saved or not?
