These two houses are not to be  built until I give unto you a commandment concerning them.

And all  they who receive the oracles of God, let them beware how  they hold them, lest they are accounted as a light thing, and  are brought under condemnation thereby, and stumble and fall,  when the storms descend, and the winds blow, and the rains  descend, and beat upon their house.
3 And again, verily I say unto thy brethren ,  and , their sins are forgiven them also,  and they are accounted as equal with thee in holding the keys  of this last kingdom: as also through your administration the  keys of the school of the prophets, which I have commanded  to be organized, that thereby they may be perfected in their  ministry for the salvation of Zion, and of the nations of Israel,  and of the Gentiles, as many as will believe, that through your  administration, they may receive the word, and through their  administration, the word may go forth unto the ends of the  earth, unto the Gentiles first, and then behold, and lo, they  shall turn unto the Jews: and then cometh the day when the [p. 214]
