Isaiah speaks of a "refuge of lies" in Isaiah 28 being swept away by the One Mighty and Strong when he comes to set in order the House of God. Refuge of lies comprised of manifestoes which are "lies to beat the devil at his own game" in the words of Wilford Woodruff concerning the first manifesto. But the modern Mormon believes these are revelations from God despite the fact that Charles W. Penrose testified that he wrote it (the first one) with the assistance of Frank White and one other man in Mexico City. "It is no revelation from God, for I wrote it." This, however by the Church, is treated as a revelation which was presented by Wilford Woodruff in the hopes the Latter Day Saints would reject it. When to his surprise they accepted it, he explained "We have made a covenant with death and with hell". Isaiah 28 says that: 15 Because ye have said, We have made a covenant with death, and with hell are we at agreement; when the overflowing scourge shall pass through, it shall not come unto us: for we have made lies our refuge, and under falsehood have we hid ourselves: 18 And your covenant with death shall be disannulled, and your agreement with hell shall not stand; when the overflowing scourge shall pass through, then ye shall be trodden down by it. (Isa 28:15,18) The modern Mormon blithely ignoring this prophecy out of ignorance, perfectly fulfills the prophecy. They actually believe the manifesto because it was sustained by the Church has validity, while an actual revelation from God, the 1886 revelation in John Taylor's own handwriting is of no effect! Amazing. It would be easier to do away with the universal law of gravitation and the effects thereof because it has not been presented to the Church either.
