"And the Lord shall be red in his apparel like him that treadeth the wine vat,..." (D&C 133:48)
"There are those of the rising generation who shall not taste death til Christ comes." (Joseph Smith, 6 April 1843, in General Conference)
"I was once praying earnestly upon the subject, and a voice said unto me, My son, if thou livest till thou art 85 years of age, thou shalt see the Face of the Son of Man--I was left to draw my own conclusions concerning this & took the liberty to conclude that if I did live till that time He would make His appearance or I shall go where He is--I prophesy in the name of the Lord God--& let it be written, that the Son of Man will not come in the heavens till I am 85 years old, 48 years hence or about 1890." (Diary of Joseph Smith, April 6, 1843, quoted in The Revelations of Joseph Smith, p.345)
"President Smith then stated that the meeting had been called, because God commanded it; and it was made known to him by vision and by the Holy Spirit***and it was the will of God that those who went to Zion, with a determination to lay down their lives, if necessary, should be ordained to the ministry, and go forth to prune the vineyard for the last time, or the coming of the Lord, which was nigh--even fifty-six years should wind-up the scene." (Sermon by Joseph Smith on the 14th of February, 1835, as recorded by his secretary Frankin D. Richards, D.H.C. 2:182)
"I was once praying very earnestly to know the time of the acoming of the Son of Man, when I heard a voice repeat the following: Joseph, my son, if thou livest until thou art eighty-five years old, thou shalt see the face of the Son of Man; therefore let this suffice, and trouble me no more on this matter." (Doctrine and Covenants sec. 130:14-15)

Moss, Aenon E. The 1891 Prophecies of Joseph Smith FULFILLED in Baha'u'llah (Salt Lake City: Millennial Publications, 2009)
The 1891 prophecies of Joseph Smith have been FULFILLED in BAHÁ'U'LLÁH (baw-HAW-OhL-LAW), the Persian Prophet and Founder of the Baha'i (baw-high) Faith: a world-wide independent religion with over 7 million Believers.
Latter-day Saints still await "the Day" that the Holy Ghost will "come down to get a body" and perform some great and Holy Mission on this planet. Baha'is know that "Day" has already come!
Bahá'u'lláh (1817-1892) was born and raised in Iran, but exiled to Iraq, then Turkey, and finally to Palestine in 1868. He lived for many years in Akka, Palestine (now Israel), in a "Celestial Room" surrounded by white veils. Nobody could enter His presence without knowing certain "signs and tokens". In the year 1891 He appeared on on Mount Carmel, in red garments, claiming to be "the Son of Man".
'Abdu'l-Bahá (awb-dull baw-HAW), the Eldest Son of Bahá'u'lláh, appeared in Salt Lake City in September of 1912, in the red robes of His Father, and knocked on the East Door of the Salt Lake Temple.
Shoghi Effendi (shawg-kee ef-fen-dee), the great-grandson of Bahá'u'll´ah, and Guardian of the Faith, once referred to Joseph Smith as a "Seer". This book explains what a "Seer" is in the "Baha'i sense" of the word and how and why he prophesied of Bahá'u'lláh.
The Baha'i Faith teaches the concepts of Eternal Marriage, the pre-existence of spirits, the Unity of God but the Plurality of His Names/Attributes, and a form of Exalation in the Afterlife. The Faith accepts Jesus as the WORD incarnate, Lord of the Visible and Invisible, the literal-virgin-born Son of God and very Savior of Man.
