Joseph Smith makes some modest prophecies about himself. He will be a choice seer, esteemed highly, and
shall do "a work of great worth." He will be great in God's eyes, like Moses, and will do God's work. He will bring
forth God's word, confound false doctrines, establish peace, and bring knowledge in the latter days. All those who seek
to destroy him will be confounded. He will be like God and will bring God's people to salvation. He will have exceeding faith,
work mighty wonders, and do what is great in the sight of God. 3:6-24
"A choice seer will I raise out of the fruit of thy loins."
The "choice seer" is, of course, Joseph Smith. He is prophesied to be a direct descendant of Joseph (the
fruit of his loins). But Joseph Smith couldn't have sprung from any Nephite's loins, since (according to
Mormon 6) they all died leaving no descendants. 3:7
"When ... they ... believe in me, that I am Christ ... they shall be restored ... unto the lands of their inheritance."
False prophecy: the Jews returned to Israel without converting to Christianity. 10:7
