Koyle said God commanded him not to write of his dreams. Thus, Koyle’s many startling predictions were recorded only by his closest followers. Several well-known Koyle dreams, drawn from the Ogden Kraut’s John Koyle’s Relief Mine, and The Dream Mine Story by Norman Pierce, are detailed below:
1912: Koyle’s vision of polygamists in Mexico contradicts the promise of LDS Church President Joseph F. Smith. In 1890, the LDS Church banned the practice of polygamy in the United States, causing many polygamists to settle in Mexico. The church officially forbade plural marriage worldwide in 1910. To offer consolation to members in Mexico who would now have to give up plural marriage, Smith promised that the next temple would be built there. Learning of this announcement, Koyle disagreed. According to his dream, settlers would flee Mexico with only two bags per person. In 1912, Mexican revolutionary forces led by General Pancho Villa forced these settlers out of Mexico allowing them only two bags per person. The next temple was not built in Mexico.
1929: Koyle foresaw the stock market crash. Koyle warns his banker and LDS stake president Henry Gardner to call in his loans before October of 1929. Gardner is most grateful for the tip.
Many say Koyle never got one wrong, but there is disagreement. Read about this revelator’s “misses” in the Feature Sidebar, Dead Ahead: More Dream Mine signs of the end of the world, and other prophecies. You’ll also read about a revelation Koyle believed was given to Joseph Smith but actually intended for Koyle as well as more signposts of the apocalypse.
