therefore, beloved breth- ren, deal justly, love mercy, walk humbly before God, and whatever your hands find to do, do it with your might, keeping all the commandments, and then, whether in life or in death, all things will be yours, whether they be temples or lands, houses or vineyards, baptisms or enduements, revelations or healings, all things will be yours, for you will be Christ's and Christ is God's.
~ Wilford Woodruff
In this city the church has succeeded in securing sev- eral extensive plots of land, which have been laid out in city lots, a part of which have been sold, a part has been distributed to the widows and orphan, and a part remains for sale. These lots are for the inheritance of the saints, a resting place for the church, a habitation for the God of Jacob; for here he has commanded a house to be built unto his name where he may manifest himself unto his people as in former times, when he caused the ark, the tabernacle, and the temple to be reared, and the cloud and the fire to rest down thereon
~ Twelve Apostles
Scores of brethren in this city, have offered to board one and two labourers each till the Temple is completed; many have volunteered to labour continually, and the brethren generally are giving one-tenth part of their time, or one-tenth part of their income, according to cir- cumstances; while those sisters, who can do nothing more, are knitting socks and mittens, and preparing gar- ments for the laborers, so that they may be made as com- fortable as possible during the coming winter. In view of these things we would invite our brethren for many miles distant around us, to send in their teams for draw- ing stone, lumber, and materials for the buildings; and at the same time load their wagons with all kinds of grain and meat, provision and clothing, and hay and provender in abundance, that the laborer faint not, and the teams be made strong; also that journey men stone cutters, &c. come, bringing their tools with them, and enlist in the glorious enterprise.
~ 1841 Epistle of Twelve

Brethren, the blessings of the kingdom are for you, for the body of Christ, for all the members, and God will help those who help themselves, and bless those who will bless each other, and do as they would be done unto. The gold and the silver is the Lords; all the trea- sures of the earth, the flocks and the herds of the fields and the cattle of the thousand hills are his; if he were hungry would he crave thy food, or thirsty would he ask thy drink? Nay: he would only ask that which was his own, he would feast on his own flocks, and quench his thirst at his own springs. This God is the God of the saints; he is your God, and he has made you stewards of all that has been committed to you, and will require his own with usury; and will you not be faithful in a little that you may be made rulers over many cities? Yes, you will, we know you will.
~ 1841 Epistle of Twelve
they must also believe that this dis- pensation comprehends all the great works of all former dispensations; and that the children must gather as did the fathers; must build a house, where they may be en- dued, and be found together worshipping and doing as their fathers did, when Jehovah spake and the angels of heaven ministered unto them
~ Wilford Woodruff
the set time to favor Zion has come and her sons and daughters shall rejoice in her glory. The time has come when the great Jehovah would have a resting place on earth, a habitation for his chosen, where his law shall be revealed, and his servants be endued from on high, to bring together the honest in heart from the four winds; where the saints may enter the baptis- mal font for their dead relations, so that they may be judged according to men in the flesh, and live according to God in the spirit, and come forth in the celestial king- dom

~ 1841 Epistle of Twelve
Let us not for a moment lend an ear to evil and designing men who would sub- vert the truth, and blacken the character of the servant of The Most High God, by publishing abroad that the pro- phet is enriching himself on the spoils of the brethren. When brother Joseph stated to the general conference the amount and situation of the property of the church, of which he is trustee in trust by the united voice of the church, he also stated the amount of his own possessions on earth; and what do you think it was? We will tell you. His old horse Charley, given him in Kirtland; two pet deer; two old turkeys, and four young ones; the old cow given him by a brother in Missouri, his old Ma- jor, dog; his wife, children, and a little household furni- ture; and this is the amount of the great possessions of that man whom God has called to lead his people in these last days; this the sum total of the great estates, the splendid mansions and noble living of him who has spent a life of toil and suffering, of privation and hardships, of impris- onments and chains, of dungeons and vexations suits, and every kind of contumely, and contempts ungodly men could heap upon him, and last of all report him as rolling in wealth and luxury which he had plundered from the spoils of those for whose good he had thus toil- ed and suffered. Who would be willing to suffer what he has suffered, and labour near twenty years as he has done, for the wealth he is in possession of?
~ 1841 Epistle of Twelve
let all the saints come up to the places of gathering, and with their mites and their abundance, as God has given them in trust, help to build up the old waste places, which have been thrown down for many generations, knowing, that when they are completed, they will belong unto the people of the Most High God, even the meek, the honest in heart, he shall possess all things in the due time of the Lord. Be not covetous, but deal in righteousness, for what the saints shall not possess by purchase and in righteous- ness they shall not possess, for no unrighteous thing can enter into the kingdom; therefore, beloved breth- ren, deal justly, love mercy, walk humbly before God, and whatever your hands find to do, do it with your might, keeping all the commandments, and then, whether in life or in death, all things will be yours, whether they be temples or lands, houses or vineyards, baptisms or enduements, revelations or healings, all things will be yours, for you will be Christ's and Christ is God's.
