Ten Tribes Flying into Space

Juvenile Instructor, “Recollections of the Prophet Joseph Smith”, Vol. 27, June 1, 1892, No. 11, pg 345; “I heard Joseph Smith preach baptism for the dead…. I heard him say, ‘the Ten Tribes were not on this globe, but a portion of this earth had cleaved off with them and went flying into space, and when the time comes when the “earth reels to and from like a drunken man and the stars from heaven fall,” it would join on again.’” – Bathsheba W. Smith

Wow, the reality shows of today don’t have anything on ol’ Joe Smith! If this was the only time this was said I’d almost wonder, but alas, it wasn’t. Many people testified and wrote in their private journals about this, some with more detail than others.
