Brigham’s Fulfilled Prophecy


Brigham Young

B. F. Grant, brother to Heber J. Grant, was partially raised by Brigham Young. What did President Young prophesy would happen to him if he pursued his desire to go to California?

a. That he would become one of California’s wealthiest men

b. That he would die before reaching California

c. That he would return to Utah as one of Utah’s richest men

d. That he would return to Utah in worse shape financially then when he left

Yesterday’s answer:

B.   Brigham Young

With respect to the hierarchical organization of the Presiding Bishopric, however, additional evolution was necessary. At first Newel K. Whiney serve with counselors. Then, on September 6, 1850, Brigham Young and Heber C. Kimball were sustained as his counselors, a curious situation since by then Brigham Young was the President of the Church and Heber C. Kimball was his first counselor. This situation ended with Whitney’s death two weeks later.
