The City Of New Jerusalem Will Be In America
Do you know the size of New Jerusalem? When I was studying Isaiah a year ago, I cross referenced it with Revelations. Needless to say I was astounded when I learned the following.
Revelations 21:16 "And the city lieth foursquare, and the length is as large as the breadth; and he measured the city with the reed, twelve thousand furlongs. The length and the breadth and the height of it are equal" In other words New Jerusalem is massive.
A furlong = 1/8 of a mile. 12,000 = 1500 miles. IF the length (1500 miles) is the same as the breadth (1500 miles) and the height is equal to the length and breadth this is a 1500 miles square CUBE. No plane that we have on the earth today would be able to fly over the 7,920,000 ft high if my calculations are correct. SO....here is some food for thought.....
1. We know that the Garden of Eden was located 'eastward' according to Moses.
Moses 3:8 " 8 And I, the Lord God, planted a garden eastward in Eden, and there I put the man whom I had formed."
According to Wilford Woodruff:
“Joseph, the Prophet, told me that the Garden of Eden was in Jackson County, Missouri. When Adam was driven out he went to the place we now call Adam-ondi-Ahman, Daviess County, Missouri. There he built an altar and offered sacrifices.”
2. Wilford Woodruff also said, "The Salt Lake Temple is the Lord's favorite and it will stand during the millennium."
3. The Prophet Brigham Young had this to say about the murder of the Prophet Joseph and his brother Hyrum Smith: "Were they aware of it at the seat of government? I have no doubt they as well knew the plans for destroying the Prophet as did those in Carthage or in Warsaw, Illinois. It was planned by some of the leading men of the nation. I have said here once before, to the astonishment of many of our own countrymen, that there was a delegate from each State in the nation when Joseph was killed. These delegates held their council. I have heard Joseph say: You will see the sorrows and misery of the world and the misery that will be upon this land, until you will turn away and pray that your eyes may not be obliged to look upon it. Said he, There are men in this council that will live to see the affliction that will come upon this nation, until your heart sink within you."
D&C 136:33-36 Elder John Taylor said. " For my Spirit is sent forth into the world to enlighten the humble and contrite, and to the condemnation of the ungodly.
34 Thy brethren have rejected you and your testimony, even the nation that has driven you out;
35 And now cometh the day of their calamity, even the days of sorrow, like a woman that is taken in travail; and their sorrow shall be great unless they speedily repent, yea, very speedily.
36 For they killed the prophets, and them that were sent unto them; and they have shed innocent blood, which crieth from the ground against them.
I took the liberty of counting and naming the 26 states in the union at the time the Prophet Joseph and his brother Hyrum were murdered. You can check it out here. Texas was not in the union until later in the year. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United...election,_1844
So IF we accept the fact the Garden of Eden might be the eastern boundary for the Garden of Eden/New Jerusalem we look westward 1500 miles to find the western boundary.
So we can surmise the 1500 mile cube includes Salt Lake City (after the cleansing of course.) The distance between Independence is approximately 1100 miles.
PLEASE NOTE: Reno is 1600 miles; Los Angeles is 1700 miles; Las Vegas is 1500 miles; Portland is 1800 miles; Boise is 1400 miles....you get the picture.
It has been suggested Cardston, Alberta will be a refuge to the north and is 1429 miles from Independence, MO. It has also been suggested Washington County (St George) will be a place of refuge. Cardston, Alberta is 1050 miles from St George; Mesa, AZ is 1407 miles from Cardston.
In summation: I submit the following scenario for contemplation and prayer. New Jerusalem is a 1500 mile square cube. The eastern border is about where the original Garden of Eden was located. Evil and wicked men including members/delegates/leaders of this nation from EACH of the 26 states conspired to murder Joseph and Hyrum Smith. There isn't enough money in the world to make me want to live in any one of those 26 states it is 'scripture' that "innocent blood has been shed and it crieth from the ground against them." At the top of the list is Illinois where the actual murder took place. Anyone want to re-locate to Chicago??? If you want to know IF your home is in the cube it's easy enough to check. Keep in mind there will be a great cleansing including Salt Lake City so make sure you're out of the way when they time comes.

This is the picture I used in my presentations. Notice that it is approximately 1500 miles from Kansas city (which will become a seaport) and the West coast. Also from just above Cardston to down into Mexico...(Think of Mormon Battalion march as the sort of boundry. Colonial Juarez.
