Joseph Smith Quote

I was asked about a quote from Joseph Smith. Thought I’d put it up here, also. It is taken from the journal of Mosiah Hancock, and is Bro. Hancock’s recollection of a statement made by Joseph Smith:

…you will travel west until you come to the valley of the Great Salt Lake. …you will live to see men rise in power in the church who will seek to put down your friends and the friends of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. Many will be hoisted because of their money and the worldly learning which they seem to be in possession of; and many who are the true followers of our Lord and Savior will be cast down because of their poverty. (Mosiah Hancock Journal, p.19)
