. . . And while they were persecuting and reviling me
and speaking all manner of evil against me falsely, my heart was asking, “ Why persecute me for telling the truth ? I have actually seen a vision ; and who am I that I can withstand God, or why does the world think to make me deny what I have actually seen ? For I had seen a vision ; I knew it, and I knew that God knew it, and I could not deny it, neither dared I do it ; . . . and come under condemnation.” *
 
     
  Joseph, admit that you
lied about your visions
and we ‛ll spare you !
 
     
     
  But I could not deny that I had received
messages from God for all the people of the
earth. I was persecuted throughout my life
for making these claims. I was even tarred
and feathered in 1832, but I would make no
denial.
 
* JSH 1:25
