Is there not room enough upon the mountains of , and  <July 8> upon the plains of , or in the land where Adam dwelt; that  you should not covet that which is but the drop, and neglect the more weig hty matters. Therefore come up hither unto the land of my people even  Zion. Let my Servant be faithful over a few things, and he  shall be a ruler over many. Let him preside in the midst of my people  in the city , and let him be blessed with the blessings of my people  Let my Servant, , be ashamed of the Nicolatine band, and  of all their secret abominations, and of all his littleness of soul before me  saith the Lord, and come up unto the land of , and  be a Bishop unto my people saith the Lord, not in name but in deed  saith the Lord. And again I say unto you I remember my  servant . Behold, verily I say unto him, that his name  shall be had in sacred remembrance from generation to generation, for ever and ever. saith the Lord. Therefore let him contend earnestly  for the redemption of the first presidency of my church, saith the  Lord, and when he falls he shall rise again, for his sacrifice shall  be more sacred unto me, than his increase, saith the Lord; Therefore  let him come up hither speedily unto the land of Zion, and in  due time he shall be made a Merchant unto my name, saith the  Lord, for the benefit of my people: Therefore let no man despise my  servant , but let the blessings of my people be on him  forever and ever. And [a]gain, verily I say unto you, let all  my servants in the land of remember the Lord their God  and mine house also, to keep and preserve it holy, and to  overthrow the money changers in mine own due time saith  the Lord, even so Amen.
Also, I received the following;
<8 Revelation  Concerning the  Twelve.> Revelation Given at , July 8th, 1838.
Shew unto us thy  will, O Lord! concerning the Twelve? Answer. Verily thus saith  the Lord, let a conference be held immediately; let the the Twelve be  organized, and let men be appointed to supply the place of those  who are fallen. Let my servant remain for a Season  in the land of Zion, to publish my word, Let the residue con tinue to preach from that hour; and if they will do this in  all lowliness of heart, in meekness, and humility, and long  suffering, I the Lord give unto them a promise that I will  provide for their families, and an effectual door shall  be opened for them, from hence forth; And next spring let  them depart to go over the great waters, and there promulge  my gospel, the fulness thereof, and to bear record of my  name. Let them take leave of my saints, in the city , on the 26th day of April next, on the building spot  <,      ,  chosen.—> of my saith the Lord. Let my servant ,  and also my servant , and also my servant  , and also my servant ,  be appointed to fill the places of those who have fallen, and  be officially notified of their appointment.
