Therefore let us become subject unto her laws, Verily I say unto  you it is expedient in me, that the first elders of my church should  receive their endowment from on high in mine house which  I have commanded to be built unto my name in the land  of , and let those commandments which I have given  concerning Zion, and her law be executed and fulfilled after  her redemption. There has been a day of calling. but the time  has come for a day of choosing, and let those be chosen that are  worthy and it shall be manifest unto my servant Joseph by  the voice of the Spirit, those who are chosen, and they shall be  sanctified, and in as much as they, follow the counsels which they  receive they shall have power after many days to accomplish  all things partaining to Zion.
<And> again I say unto you, sue for peace not only the people that  have smitten you, but also to all people. and lift up an ensign  of peace, and make a proclamation of for peace unto the ends of  the earth and make proposals of <for> peace unto those who have  smitten you, according to the voice of the spirit which is in  you, and all thing shall work together for your good, and  be faithful and behold and low I am with you even unto  the end. even so Amen [p. 101 [201]]
