5th Nephi Code Video: Was Frederick G. Williams Correct?

This is our fifth video. Please take a look at it and if you enjoy the video please "like it," and subscribe to our You-Tube Channel and  share with your friends and family. And, if you are interested, let us know what you think of our video since we have plans for more. Thank you.


  1. Here are quotes from the source: "After One Hundred Years".

    After the dedicatory prayer, singing and administration of the Lords Supper, Don Carlos Smith and President Cowdery arouse and bore their testimonies. President Williams (Fredrick G Williams) then arose and testified that while President Rigdon was making his first prayer an angel entered the window and took his seat between Father Smith and himself and remained there during the prayer.4

    Heber C. Kimball related it thus: "During the ceremonies of the dedication an angel appeared and sat near Joseph Smith Sen., and Frederick G. Williams, so that they had a fair view of his person. He was tall, had black eyes and white hair and stooped shoulders and his garment was whole, extending to near his ankles, on his feet he had sandals. He was sent as a messenger to accept of the dedication. 5

    Frederick had in his pocket a piece of paper which he carried to take notes on. On this he wrote in pencil: "John the Beloved"--then a space followed and a few lines written in another language. A large space followed and then at the bottom of the page he wrote the following revelation: "The course that Lehi traveled from the city of Jerusalem to the place where he and his family took ship: They traveled nearly south, southeast direction until they came to the nineteenth degree of north latitude. Then nearly east to the Sea of Arabia; then south, southeast direction and landed on the continent of South America in Chili, thirty degrees south latitude." Returning home, he transcribed the revelation in ink on another sheet of paper. Rebecca kept these papers with his other notes until her death. Their son, Ezra, loaned them to the Church Historians Office in Salt Lake City in the 1860's where they have lain these many years, known only to historians, to be brought to light and published for the first time. 5a "After 100 Years", Nancy C Williams, pp 101-102.

  2. Thank you for this very insightful information. Interesting that it has been so well kept from the public eye.

  3. Thanks to your source I was able to find the information. The entire book is downloadable at
    I would correct one thing, it is found on pages 53 and 54 in this download of the book "After One Hundred Years" not 101-102. And should anyone be interested, this event took place on Sunday, March 27, 1836.
    By the way, footnote 5a states: "5a The original, written in pencil was shown
    to the author by a Historian, in the early 1930’s, and was the only one she had seen until February 29, 1949, when she was shown the film and the letter from which it was taken -- and received with others a wonderful manifestation that it was indeed a revelation given to Frederick G. Williams for him and his family. The original, written in pencil, cannot be found at this writing" which is most interesting since it answers the questions about it being a revelation--not for the Church as B.H.Roberts so clearly stated, but a personal revelation to Williams and his family. A remarkable thought.
    In addition, the book has numerous other interesting material about Frederick G. Williams and his part in other events taking place at this time.

  4. Good work MrNirom and Del. Now we know the source of this obvious revelation. This is quite exciting.

  5. That biography of Frederick G Williams - after 100 years- is awesome. Love reading historical events of Joseph Smith's time in first person. Frederick's revelation came during the "Jubilee Year" - the year of the dedication of the Kirtland temple. A time when great revelations and manifestations came to pass.
    Great video too. Thanks!
