The New Jerusalem (Zion) Will Be Created Before The Second Coming In The United States Of America

The Presidents Of The Church Series: Joseph Smith

It was revealed to Joseph Smith that Jackson County Missouri is the headquarters for Zion in the last days. He knew the church would go through some testing and purification before Zion is built because it can’t be built in sin.

Prophets of all the dispensations of the world have looked with great anticipation to the Zion that we are to build.

Church leaders emphasize building Zion in whatever nation you live in. Building a place like Zion can only be done through Jesus Christ and His revelations. It is impossible to build it without Christ. People have tried to build Utopian like societies, some with good intentions, but they always failed.

Joseph said, “…We ought to have the building up of Zion as our greatest object…. The time is soon coming, when no man will have any peace but in Zion and her stakes.”

Joseph quoted Enoch in Moses 7:62 and commented how righteousness and truth are to sweep the earth as with a flood. Joseph said that men and angels would work together to make this great work happen.

The New Jerusalem will not be in Israel but in the United States of America.
