the fowls of heaven, and all wild animels, that run or creep on the earth; and these hath God made for the use of man, only in times of famine and excess of hunger.
All grain is good for the food of man, as also the fruit of the vine, that which yieldeth fruit, whether in the ground, or above the ground: Nevertheless, wheat for the man, and corn for the ox, and oats for the horse, and rye for the fowls, and for swine, and for all beasts of the field; and barley for all useful animals, and for mild drink, as also other grain.
And all saints who remember to keep and do these sayings, walking in obedience to the commandments, shall receive health in their naval, and marrow to their bones, and shall find wisdom and great treasures of knowledge; even hidden treasures; and shall run and not be weary, and shall walk and not faint: and I the Lord give unto them a promise, that the destroying angel shall pass by them, as the children of Israel, and not slay them. Amen.
Revelation, 8 March 1833 [D&C 90]
, March 8, 1833.
A Commandment given unto Joseph, saying, thus saith the Lord, verily, verily I say unto you, my son, thy sins are forgiven thee, according to thy petition, for thy prayers and the prayers of thy brethren, have come up unto my ears: therefore thou art blessed from henceforth that bear the keys of the kingdom given unto you; which kingdom is coming forth for the last time.
Verily, I say unto you, the keys of this kingdom shall never be taken from you, whilst thou art in the world, neither in the world to come: Nevertheless, through you shall the oracles be given unto another; yea even unto the church. And all they who receive the oracles of God, let them be aware 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.
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 [p. 168]
