The following revelation from our Heavenly Father (God) was given through the Latter-day prophet, Joseph Smith in February 1831.
Moses 1:24 And it came to pass that when Satan had departed from the presence of Moses, that Moses lifted up his eyes unto heaven, being filled with the Holy Ghost, which beareth record of the Father and the son.
25 And calling upon the name of God, he beheld his glory again, for it was upon him; and he heard a voice, saying: Blessed art thou, Moses, for I, the Almighty, have chosen thee, and thou shalt be made stronger than many waters; for they shall obey thy command as if thou wert God.
26 And lo, I am with thee, even unto the end of thy days; for thou shalt deliver my people from bondage, even Israel my chosen.
27 And it came to pass, as the voice was still speaking, Moses cast his eyes and beheld the earth, yea, even all of it; and there was not a particle of it which he did not behold, discerning it by the spirit of God.
28 And he beheld also the inhabitants thereof, and there was not a soul which he beheld not; and he discerned them by the Spirit of God; and their numbers were great, even numberless as the sand upon the sea shore.
29 And he beheld many lands; and each land was called earth, and there were inhabitants on the face thereof.
30 And it came to pass that Moses called upon God, saying: Tell me, I pray thee, why these things are so, and by what thou madest them?
31 And behold, the glory of the Lord was upon Moses, so that Moses stood in the presence of God, and talked with him face to face. And the Lord God said unto Moses: For mine own purpose have I made these things. Here is wisdom and it remaineth in me.
32 And by the word of my power, have I created them, which is mine Only Begotten Son, who is full of grace and truth.
33 And worlds without number have I created; and I also created them for mine own purpose; and by the Son I created them, which is mine Only Begotten.
34 And the first man of all men have I called Adam, which is many.
35 But only an account of this earth, and the inhabitants thereof, give I unto you. For behold, there are many worlds that have passed away by the word of my power. And there are many that now stand, and innumerable are they unto man; but all things are numbered unto me, for they are mine and I know them.
36 And it came to pass that Moses spake unto the Lord, saying: Be merciful unto thy servant, O God, and tell me concerning this earth, and the inhabitants thereof, and also the heavens, and then thy servant will be content.
37 And the Lord God spake unto Moses, saying: The heavens, they are many, and they cannot be numbered unto man; but they are numbered unto me, for they are mine.
38 And as one earth shall pass away, and the heavens thereof even so shall another come, and there is no end to my works, neither to my words.
39 For behold, this is my work and my glory—to bring to pass the immortality and eternal life of man.
40 And now, Moses, my son, I will speak unto thee concerning this earth upon which thou standest; and thou shalt write the things which I shall speak.
41 And in a day when the children of men shall esteem my words as naught and take many of them from the book which thou shalt write, behold, I will raise up another like unto thee; (Joseph Smith) and they shall be had again among the children of men—among as many as shall believe.
42 (These words were spoken unto Moses in the mount, the name of which shall not be known among the children of men. And now they are spoken unto you. Show them not unto any except them that believe. Even so. Amen.) (emphasis and clarification added)

Please note: After having inserted the scripture which serves as Today's Theme, and the information that follows this paragraph, I clicked on the Comments section found in the above newspaper article and found that a person from the Kansas City, Missouri area, who appears to be an LDS person, basically made the same comments which I will make for you below.

Hopefully you have read the quote from the Book of Moses (Today's Theme) found under the leading paintings I've inserted in the beginning of this post. That quote is from the revelation Moses was given regarding other inhabited worlds (planets) that Heavenly Father has created. That revelation did not come from the Bible, it was given directly to Joseph Smith, the Prophet. It was a revelation given Moses that never made it into the Old Testament because it evidently had been lost, but not lost to Heavenly Father who knows all of these important things and revealed a good number of them to His Latter-day prophet, Joseph Smith as well as to the prophet, Moses, many centuries earlier.

Joseph Smith having been told about there being many worlds or earths which are populated by our Heavenly Father's spirit children who were born into mortal bodies just as we are here on this earth, allows us to know more about outer space and its purposes than any scientist is able to know.
From The Deseret News, Feb. 7, 2011
In contrast to the true knowledge that was revealed to Joseph Smith and Moses by our Heavenly Father, I read recently in a local newspaper, speculation about the kinds of weird creatures which might populate those other planets. (See the picture above. You may find it difficult to read the words on the newspaper the creature on the right is holding: "Earth Discovers Planets.") That is referring to the article in the Deseret News you read above to which I linked you four paragraphs before.

Because Science clings to the false theory of evolution, many people on this earth are inclined to speculate about what the dominant creatures on other planets look like. They obviously don't realize that those dominant creatures who live on other planets are also sons and daughters of our Heavenly Father and they look like Him and therefore, like us.

They did not come to be what they now are through evolution by which such dominant creatures as those cartooned in the picture above would have had to come about. Latter-day Saints have learned through revelations given through the prophet Joseph Smith, that is not possible!

Joseph Smith, a prophet of God who had so little formal education but through revelation was able to share with us this information originally received by Moses by revelation from God. I repeat this verse of scripture as it is very clarifying regarding the planets that are in outer space and are being discovered by skillful scientists in our day :
Moses 1:35 But only an account of this earth, and the inhabitants thereof, give I unto you. For behold, there are many worlds that have passed away by the word of my power. And there are many that now stand, and innumerable are they unto man; but all things are numbered unto me, for they are mine and I know them. (emphasis added)
I have just decided that this post will be the lead post in a short series about the role of the Prophet Joseph Smith in Heavenly Father's work among us, including our possible collective roles in the final stages of this earth's existence as it now is and will be when the thousand year reign of peace and righteousness, which the scriptures call: the Millennium, begins in not too many years in the future.

Would you be surprised if I told you that the "great and abominable church" that Nephi saw in vision is acutally modern science? Your position on this issue becomes starkly accurate in that light. From Nephi's perspective, modern science emerged in the Reformation as simply another reactionary movement against the Catholic Church. It is the only institution that can "blind" the righteoous that is embraced by all cultures, by all nations, as indicted by Nephi. Read all about it on my blog. (www.mormonprophecy.blogspot.com)

Thank you, Anthony E. Larson for your comment. Although I believe that there are scientists who are LDS who are true to their faith, I'm sure there are many scientists who take their science as their religion.

What you wrote about modern science being a reactionary movement against the Catholic Church, seems to me to be very plausible.

Like you appear to be, I'm very grateful for both ancient and modern revelation.

Thanks again for your comment.

I did log into your blog, but haven't had the time to get into it very much.

Very respectfully, Neil Birch
