Reprinted from Millennial Star Issue of April 30, 1853. Joseph Musser (1872-1954) was an early fundamentalist leader and considered a Prophet by many, and was the leader of the Short Creek group during the government raids. Upon his death this group split to form the A.U.B. and the FLDS groups.
"Among the early documents published by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, few if any are more strikingly prophetic or more profoundly attuned to the present-day situation than is 'The Coming Crisis - How to Meet it' appearing in the Millennial Star, April 30, 1853. In terseness, richness, and trueness the document is outstanding and is a literary gem, possessing a definite historical background, lending itself to present-day conditions with a force and exactness that at once stamps it as divinely inspired." - p.3.
