stewards indeed: and for this purpose I have  commanded you to organize yourselves, even  to shinelah [print] my words, the fulness of my scrip tures, the revelations which I have given unto  you, and which I shall hereafter, from time to  time, give unto you, for the purpose of build ing up my church and kingdom on the earth,  and to prepare my people for the time when I  shall dwell with them, which is nigh at hand.
11 And ye shall prepare for yourselves a  treasury, and consecrate it unto my name;  and ye shall appoint one among you to keep  the treasury, and he shall be ordained unto  this blessing; and there shall be a seal upon  the treasury, and all the sacred things shall be  delivered into the treasury, and no man among  you shall call it his own, or any part of it, for  it shall belong to you all with one accord; and  I give it unto you from this very hour: and  now see to it, that ye go to and make use of  the stewardship which I have appointed unto  you, exclusive of the sacred things, for the  purpose of shinelane [printing] these sacred things, as I  have said: and the avails of the sacred things  shall be had in the treasury, and a seal shall  be upon it, and it shall not be used or taken  out of the treasury by any one, neither shall  the seal be loosed which shall be placed upon  it, only by the voice of the order, or by com mandment. And thus shall ye preserve the  avails of the sacred things in the treasury, for  sacred and holy purposes: and this shall be  called the sacred treasury of the Lord: and a  seal shall be kept upon it, that it may be holy  and consecrated unto the Lord.
