His fascinating story began in the summer of 1894. The angel Moroni appeared and showed him an ancient Nephite gold mine near his home in Salem, Utah. He was told that the mine would produce financial relief, in the form of gold coins, after a future economic collapse. The sacred treasure would benefit the people by keeping alive the local economy during the financial crisis and other devastating calamities.
Is there a precedent for something like this? Yes. In 1896, shortly after the angel Moroni visited Bishop Koyle, a man named Jesse Knight filed a mining claim in another part of Utah. He told a friend that he was shown, in a dream, that he would find a great body of ore. The friend replied, "Humbug!", so that's what Jesse decided to call his new mine. Money poured into the banks as Jesse uncovered deposit after deposit of silver and lead. His fortune was dedicated to helping others, and according to his own prediction, saved the credit of the Mormon church. Enough money was donated to wipe out over a million dollars of church debt. With the wealth the Lord blessed him with, he went on to finance the beginning of Brigham Young University. So yes, dream inspired mines have happened before.
In the Bible, the Lord gave Joseph the gift of dreams to prepare for a seven year famine in Egypt. Likewise, the Relief Mine will play an important role in preparing for the famine that is coming in our day. Concrete grain silos will be built and one million bushels of wheat will be stored. This will happen after a devaluation of the US dollar, so that the wheat will be purchased for a mere 50 cents per bushel, according to Bishop Koyle's prophecies. The stored grain will be used to feed thousands of people who will flee to the Rocky Mountains, as foretold by the prophet Joseph Smith, when these future calamities take place.
In summary, the Lord will use the Relief Mine to provide financial and physical relief to His people at a time when paper currencies and governments around the world will be collapsing. Most importantly, this honest form of money will be used to finance the building up of the political kingdom of God, as it grows to become the most powerful kingdom on earth!
