REVELATION AND PROPHECY ON WAR.
THROUGH JOSEPH, THE SEER, DECEMBER 25TH, 1832
VERILY, thus saith the Lord,
concerning the wars that will shortly come to pass,
beginning at the rebellion of South Carolina, which will
eventually terminate in the death and misery of many souls.
The days will come that war will be poured out upon all
nations, beginning at that place.
For behold, the Southern
States shall be divided against the Northern States, and the
Southern States will call on other nations, even the nation
of Great Britain, as it is called, and they shall also call
upon other nations, in order to defend themselves against
other nations; and thus war shall be poured out upon all
And it shall come to pass,
after many days, slaves shall rise up against their masters,
who shall be marshaled and disciplined for war:
And it shall come to pass
also, that the remnants who are left of the land will
marshal themselves, and shall become exceedingly angry, and
shall vex the Gentiles with a sore vexation;
And thus, with the sword,
and by bloodshed, the inhabitants of the earth shall mourn;
and with famine, and plague, and earthquakes, and the
thunder of heaven, and the fierce and vivid lightning also,
shall the inhabitants of the earth be made to feel the
wrath, and indignation and chastening hand of an Almighty
God, until the consumption decreed, hath made a full end of
That the cry of the
Saints, and of the blood of the Saints, shall cease to come
up into the ears of the Lord of Sabbaoth, from the earth, to
be avenged of their enemies.
Wherefore, stand ye in holy places, and be not
moved, until the day of the Lord come; for behold it cometh
quickly, saith the Lord. Amen.
