Joseph Smith ~ You will see the Constitution of the United States almost destroyed; it will hang by a thread…[it] will be preserved by the efforts of the White Horse (Mormons) and the Red Horse [the Indians], who will combine in its defense.
Mormon end times prophecy has two fronts it seems. One is very U.S. centered. The other is more worldwide/Israel centered. So this covers the U.S. focus first. Society will have broken loose from all restraints of principle and good conscience. Brotherhood dissolves. Respect for common rights and even the rights of life and property are lost. Faction after faction is seen to arise and contend with each other. Political strife is everywhere. It will be these factions who seek to subvert the cause of human freedom. There will be those who contend that our troubles are caused by those who refuse to go along with government regimentation and who insist that the answer to our problems lies in ever greater government control. They will continue to insist upon this as the only way we can live in this age. They plot to take away human rights (including gun rights), but their real object is wealth. In essence, the division will be drawn down that line which separates those who have faith in God from those who rely on government. Many others will be angry with the rulers of the Republic for the subversion of the Constitutional law and their wholesale plunder of the public moneys. (Sounds familiar.)
A terrible revolution will result in America, much worse than the Civil War, for there will be literally no supreme government, and every species of wickedness will be rampant. The most terrible scenes of bloodshed, rape and murder imaginable will take place. Neighborhood against neighborhood, state against state, they will destroy and be destroyed. Manufacturing will almost cease, cities will be abandoned–New York will be left without inhabitants. The only refuge of peace will be in the Rocky Mountains. This will cause thousands of honest people to gather there. The White Horse will have gathered strength by gathering the honest in heart among the Pale Horse (United States), to stand by the Constitution of the United States. This peace and safety in the Rocky Mountains will be protected by a combined group of the White Horse and the Red Horse.
The United States (under it’s first Greek President) will have spent her strength and means warring in foreign places until other nations will say, ‘Let’s divide up the lands of the United States.’ It begins at a time when Russia’s military strength dwarfs that of the United States. The Russians will try to destroy missile silos, with their own missiles hitting military installations and some cities. Russian satellites, in orbit above the U.S., containing high-yield nuclear bombs destroy all the transformers in the power grid. The land beyond the Rocky Mountains will be invaded by the Chinese, unless great care and protection are given. The country will go to war, and they will fight until one half of the US Army gives up, while the rest will continue to struggle. They will keep on until they are very ragged, discouraged, and almost ready to give up — then those from the mountains rush forth in time to save the American Army from defeat and ruin.
The Messiah will quietly come and give his laws to the survivors, and minister to these people. (This is not the appearing in the clouds bringing punishment of the wicked.) The Temple in Jackson County, Missouri, will be built in this generation. The whole of the Americas will be made the new Zion
In the world at large, large cities will sink into the earth, entombing its inhabitants. The sea will heave (rising sea levels and/or high tides) engulfing many cities. There will be severe lightning and thunder and devastating hailstorms will destroy the crops causing widespread famine. A “desolating scourge” will reach plague proportions. The earth will “reel to and fro as a drunken man.” The banks in every nation will fail (panic). The two Popes (Greek Orthodox and Catholic) will reunite.
Nation will rise against nation, European nations will lay in waste. Armies filled with terrible anger, without the Spirit of God upon them are left to themselves. There will be no mercy, it is a war of utter destruction and desolation.
Those opposing the creation of Zion will be called Gog and Magog–the nations of the world led by Russia. (Magog–Russia [Mongols]; Rosh–Russia; Meschech–Moscow; Tubal–Tobolsk [an area in Russia]; Persia–Iran, Iraq, Afghanistan; Gomer–Germany, Eastern Europe; Togarmah–Turkey, Southeastern Europe).
Those with the U.S. will be England and Saudi Arabia. England will be neutral until it becomes so inhuman that she will interfere to stop the shedding of blood. England and France will be allied together and be united to keep Russia from conquering the world. The Black horse (Africa) will join with them hoping to not be re-enslaved.
The Turkish Empire (the Crescent) will be one of the first nations to fall. This opens the way for the Gospel to be preached in Israel.
The righteous remnant will be watching the signs of the times and seek to be worthy by obeying the commandments.
Just before the Second Coming (punishment of the wicked), unmistakable signs will appear in the heavens. The sun will darkened, the moon will turn to blood, stars will fall, the rainbow will be taken from the sky. Lastly, “seven golden lamps set in the heavens representing the various dispensations of God to man,” there will then be silence in heaven for half an hour, and “immediately after shall the curtain of heaven be unfolded as a scroll…, and the face of the Lord shall be unveiled.”
