180 years ago today - February 25, 1844

Joseph at a prayer meeting:

"I prophesied that within five years we should be out of the power of our old enemies, whether they were apostates or of the world; and told the brethren to record it, that when it comes to pass they need not say they had forgotten the saying." (History of the Church, vol. 6, p. 225)

Within five years of this prophecy, the Saints were away from their persecutors and settling in the relative safety of the Salt Lake Valley.

Joseph's mother remembered a similar prophecy as taking place in Missouri about five years before Joseph's death. Gazing upon the dead bodies of her two sons, in their peace she felt the fulfillment of that prophecy. It was her feeling that he was delivered from his enemies through his death. (History of Joseph Smith, by His Mother, Lucy Mack, p. 325)
