LDS False Prophecy: Adam the Prophet Delivered First Prophecy to Mankind

24 January

 Ensign, ‘The Man Adam,’ January 1994; “Three years prior to his death, Adam gathered his righteous posterity together in the valley of Adam-ondi-Ahman (the place where he and Eve had settled after their expulsion from Eden 15 ). Seven generations of faithful patriarchs with their families met to receive prophetic counsel at the feet of him who had come to be known as the “Ancient of Days.” There he bestowed upon them his last blessing.  … The Lord appeared in their midst, and he (Adam) blessed them all, and foretold what should befall them to the latest generation. This is why Adam blessed his posterity; he wanted to bring them into the presence of God.” 16

Adam was the Lord’s prophet-leader over the earth for his own day, but he also stands as earth’s presiding high priest, the man who, under Christ, holds the keys of authority for the blessing of mankind and the perpetuation of righteousness in the earth…” – Robert Millet

Jude 1:14; “And Enoch also, the seventh from Adam, prophesied of these, saying, Behold, the Lord cometh with ten thousands of his saints.”

Once again, we see another false teaching of the Church.

Amongst all the prophecies one can find in the Bible, we read how Enoch was the first to do so even though it’s not recorded until almost the end of the Bible in Jude.

How could Adam prophesy about Jesus before Enoch, who was the 7thgeneration after Adam prophesied? Enoch, Noah’s great-grandfather, was a descendant of Seth, who was the third son of Adam. As one can easily see, Enoch’s prophecy gave no details about Jesus outside of calling Him ‘the Lord’.

Besides all that, Jesus is the ‘Ancient of Days’ that we read about in Daniel, and the word ‘Christ’ is Greek, not Hebrew. This indicates they wouldn’t have been using that term in the days of Daniel, much less Adam.

Lastly, Adam does not hold the keys of salvation, he wasn’t a high priest, nor was he a prophet.
