handmaid, , should receive money to bear her  expenses, and go up unto the land of Zion; and the residue of  the money may be consecrated unto me, and she be rewarded  in mine own due time. Verily I say unto you, that it is meet  in mine eyes, that she should go up unto the land of Zion, and  receive an inheritance from the hand of the bishop, that she  may settle down in peace inasmuch as she is faithful, and not  be idle in her days from thenceforth.
8 And behold, verily I say unto you, that ye shall write this  commandment, and say unto your brethren in Zion, in love  greeting, that I have called you also to preside over Zion in  mine own due time: therefore let them cease wearying me  concerning this matter. Behold, I say unto you, that your  brethren in Zion begin to repent, and the angels rejoice over  them; nevertheless, I am not well pleased with many things:  and I am not well pleased with my servant , neither with my servant ; and the bishop al so: and others have many things to repent of: but verily I say  unto you, that I the Lord will contend with Zion and plead  with her strong ones, and chasten her, until she overcomes  and is clean before me: for she shall not be removed out of her  place: I the Lord have spoken it. Amen.

Revelation given August, 1833.
 
1 Verily I say unto you, my friends, fear not, let your hearts  be comforted; yea, rejoice evermore, and in every thing give  thanks, waiting patiently on the Lord: for your prayers have  entered into the ears of the Lord of Sabaoth, and are record ed with this seal and testament: the Lord hath sworn and  decreed that they shall be granted: therefore he giveth this  promise unto you, with an immutable covenant, that they shall  be fulfilled, and all things wherewith you have been afflicted,  shall work together for your good, and to my name’s glory  saith the Lord.
2 And now verily I say unto you, concerning the laws of the  land, it is my will that my people should observe to do all  things whatsoever I command them, and that law of the  land, which is constitutional, supporting that principle of free dom, in maintaining rights and privileges belongs to all man kind and is justifiable before me: therefore I the Lord justifi eth you, and your brethren of my church, in befriending that  law which is the constitutional law of the land: and as per taining to law of man, whatsoever is more or less than these, [p. 216]
