Martyrdom of Joseph Smith | 27 June 2022

- Advertisment - Save on Great LDS Gifts

Here’s your daily dose of what matters most! Today, we honor the prophet Joseph Smith and his brother Hyrum and the martyrdom at Carthage Jail.

Scripture

Joseph Smith, the Prophet and Seer of the Lord, has done more, save Jesus only, for the salvation of men in this world, than any other man that ever lived in it. He lived great, and he died great in the eyes of God and his people; and like most of the Lord’s anointed in ancient times, has sealed his mission and his works with his own blood.Doctrine and Covenants 135:3

Quote

Their courage, their faith, their love for the people were without bounds, and they gave all that they had for their people. Such devotion and love left no doubt in the minds of those who enjoyed the companionship of the Holy Spirit that these good men and true, were indeed the authorized servants of the Lord.Joseph F. Smith
