[Joseph Smith Diary] ... We next kept [traveling] up the river mostly in the timber for ten miles, untill we came to Col[onel] Lyman Wight's who lives at the foot of Tower Hill. A name appropriated by Pres[iden]t Smith in consequence of the remains of an old Nephitish Alter an[d] Tower where we camped for the Sab[b]ath.
In the after part of the day, Pre[siden]ts Smith and Rigdon and myself went to Wight's Ferry about a half mile from this place ... which was called Spring Hill. A name appropriated by the bretheren present, But afterwards named by the mouth of [the] Lord and was called Adam Ondi Awmen, because Said he, "It is the place where Adam Shall come to visit his people, or the Ancient of Days shall sit as spoken of by Daniel the Prophet."

[p.184]. This is another of Joseph Smith's many great errors of doctrine. The Ancient of Days is the future full-blooded American Indian Moses who will translate the two-thirds sealed part of the Book of Mormon plates, AND the 10 sealed and hidden records of the 10 Lost Tribes of Israel. He is called "The Ancient Of Days" by the prophet Daniel because he is going to translate and bring forth all the sacred records that are "Of The Ancient Days", i.e., "all records that are of ancient date" per Mosiah 8:13. He is first going to be baptized and confirmed into The Church of Jesus Christ (WHQ: Monongahela, Pennsylvania) before all these wonderful events will transpire.ReplyDelete
