In the early 1800s, God called a latter-day prophet, established His Church, and restored the sign of the Covenant of Abraham. The Times of the Gentiles were thus fulfilled, but a tempest raged in the hearts of men. The spirit of persecution followed the Prophet Joseph Smith wherever he went.

Overview

In the early 1800s, God called a latter-day prophet, established His Church, and restored the sign of the Covenant of Abraham. The Times of the Gentiles were thus fulfilled, but a tempest raged in the hearts of men. The spirit of persecution followed the Prophet Joseph Smith wherever he went. In Hiram, Ohio, he was dragged from his bed, stripped of his clothing, and covered in hot tar. Each restored truth brought new trials for both the Prophet and the Saints as adversaries from New York to the Ohio fought the fledgling Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. To protect the Saints, the Lord commanded the Church to move to Kirtland. During the few short years they were there, revelation burst forth; the Savior appeared; gifts of the Spirit were exercised; the keys of the kingdom were restored by Moses, Elias, and Elijah; and the Messiah accepted the first temple to be built in His name in almost two thousand years.

Read an Excerpt

On May 6, 1832, Joseph left Independence in the company of Sidney Rigdon and Bishop Whitney to return to Kirtland. Their intended route took them by coach from Independence (via St. Louis), across Indiana, and into New Albany, Indiana, near the falls of the Ohio River. Just before they arrived in New Albany, Joseph reported that the coach's horses were frightened by something and started galloping at their full speed. To save themselves from impending disaster, the brethren decided to jump from the coach. Bishop Whitney jumped first, but caught his foot in the wheel of the coach. His leg and foot were broken in several places. Joseph jumped from the coach unhurt. We're not told if Sidney jumped or not.

Because of Bishop Whitney's injuries, they stopped at Mr. Porter's Public House in Greenville, Indiana. They were forced to stay there for four weeks while Bishop Whitney's injuries healed. Sidney, apparently unhurt in the incident, continued on to Kirtland.
