Several curious tidbits that happened on this day in Mormon History
165 years ago today - Feb 13, 1853
Jedediah M. Grant preaches, "Some wonder why we don't have revelation now in our day as well as in the days of Joseph. In his day the brethren would not build a log cabin till they went to Joseph to ask counsel how they should set it where they should put the door etc. But at the present day men have learned to do something themselves without troubling the president or the Lord about it." Lack of "thus sayeth the Lord" revelations since the death of Joseph Smith lead to over a thousand Mormons breaking away and following Joseph Morris who receives such revelations eight years later.
