Dec 19th 1841 I willford met at the house of Joseph Smith the seer this evening to hear Preaching by Elder Kimball he opened by prayer read a chapter in the Book of Mormon & then spoke as he was led by the spirit of God, among other things he spoke a parable of the clay in the hands of the potter that when it mared in the hands of the potter it was lade aside to join the next batch & was a vessel of hishonour but all clay that formed well in the hands of the potter & was pliable was a vessel of honour & thus it was with the human family & still is, all that are pliable in the hands of God & are obediant to the commands of God are vessels of honour & God will receive them &c.
~ Wilford Woodruff
Elder B. Young arose & said one thing lay with wait on his mind ie that we should be prepared to keep each commandment as it came from the Lord by the mouth of the prophet, & as the Lord had commanded us to build a temple we should do it spedily

Jan 30th Joseph the Seer taught the following principles that the God & father of our Lord Jesus Christ was once the same as the Son or Holy Ghost but havi ng redeemed a world became the eternal God of that world he had a son Jesus Christ who redeem ed this earth the same as his father had a world which made them equal & the Holy Ghost would do the same in his turn & so would all the Saints

Because we will not receive chastizment at the hand of the prophet or Apostles the Lord chastizes us with sickness & death. Let not any man publish his own righteousnes for others can do that for him sooner let him confess his sins & then he will be forgiven & bring forth more fruit. When a man is chastised he gets angry & will not endure it. The reason we do not have the secrets of the Lord revealed unto us is because we do not keep them but reveal them, what greater love hath any man than to lay down his life for his friend then we should fight for our friend untill we die

1838 Revelation given July 8th in Far West Caldwell County Missouri Show unto us thy will O Lord concerning The Twelve [illegible] Ans — Verily thus saith the Lord let a conference be held immediately, let the Twelve be organized & let men be appointed to supply the place of those who are fallen. Let my servant Thomas remain for a season in the land of Zion season to publish my word. let the residue continue to preach from that town, and if they will do this in all low- liness of heart in meekness & humility & longsuffering I the Lord god give unto them a promise that I will provide for their families & an affectual
~ Joseph Smith
thou shalt send forth my word unto the ends of the earth contend thou there fore morning by morning & day after day let thy warning voice go forth & when the night cometh let not the inhabitants of the earth slumber because of thy speach let thy habitation [ink change] be known in Zion & remove not thy house for I the Lord have a great work for thee to do in publishing my name among the Children of Men
~ Joseph Smith
Be thou humble & the Lord thy God shall lead thee by thy hand & give thee an answer to thy prayers I know thy heart & have heard thy prayers concer- ning thy brethren
~ Joseph Smith
pray for your Brethren of the Twelve. Admonish them sharply for my name sake & let them be admonished for all their sins & be ye faithful before me unto my name & after their temptations & much tribulations behold I the Lord will feel after them & if they harden not there hearts & stiffen not their necks against me they shall be converted and I will heal them. Now I say unto you and what I say unto you I say unto all the Twelve arise & gird up your loins take up your cross follow me & feed my sheep exalt not yourselves, rebel not against my servent Joseph for verily I say unto you, I am with

purify your hearts before me & then go ye into all the world & preach my gospel unto every creat- ure who have not recieved it & he that believeth & is baptized shall be saved & he that believeth not & is not baptized shall be damned

As there are many keys to the kingdom of God the following one will detect Satan when he transforms himself nigh unto an angel of light. When Satan appears
~ Wilford Woodruff
Ever keep in exercise the principle of mercy & be ready to forgive our brother on the first intimations of repentance & asking forgiveness, & should we ever forgive our brother or even our enemy before they repent or ask forgiveness our heavenly father would be equally as mercif- ul unto us.
~ Joseph Smith
Why [won't] not man learn wisdom by precept of this late age of the world where we have such a cloud of witnesses & examples before us & not be obliged to learn by sad experi ance every thing we know. must the new ones that are chosen to fill the places of those that our fallen of the quorum of the Twelve begin to exalt themselves untill they exhalt themselves so high that they will even tumble over & have a great fall & go wallowing through the mud & mire & darkness Judas like to the buffetings of Satan as several of the quor um of the Twelve have done or will they learn wisdom & be wise.
~ Joseph Smith
When the Twelve or any other witnesses stand before the congregations of the earth & they preach in the power & demonstration of the spirit of God & the people are asstonis[h]ed & confounded at the doctrin & say that that man has preached a powerful discourse a great sermon then let that man or those men take care that they do not ass cribe the glory unto themselves but be ca- reful that they are humble & ascribe the praise & glory to God & the Lamb for it is by the power of the Holy Priesthood & Holy Ghost they have power thus to speak: what art thou O man but dust & pain wholm dost thou receive thy power & blessings but from God Then O ye Twelve notice this [FIGURE] key & be wise for Christ sake & your own so[u]ls sake
~ Joseph Smith
O ye Twelve & all Saints profit by this im portant Key [FIGURE] that in all your trials troubles, temptations; afflictions, bonds, imprisionments, & death see to it that you do not betray heaven, that you do not betray Jesus Christ, that you do not betray your Brethren, that you do not betray the revela tions of God, whether in the Bible Book of Mormon or Doctrins & Covenants

On the doctrin's of faith Faith comes by hearing the word of God through the testimony of the Servents of God that Testimony is alw- ays attended by the spirit of prophecy & revelation.

Repentance Is a thing that cannot be trifled with every day. Daily transgression & daily repentance is not that which is pleasing in the sight of God [FIGURE]

Baptism Is a Holy ordinance preparatory to the reception of the Holy Ghost,; It is the channel & key by which the Holy Ghost will be administered.

Tongues Were given for the purpose of preach- ing among those whose language is not understood as on the day of pen- tecost &c, & it is not necessary for tongues to be taught to the Church particularly, for any man that has the Holy Ghost can speak of the things of God in his own tongue as well as to speak in another. for faith comes not by signs but by hearing the word of God.
~ Joseph Smith
The doctrin of the Resurrection of the Dead and Eternal judgment are necisary to preach among the first principles of the gospel of Jesus Christ.

The Doctrin of Election St Paul exhorts us to make our calling & election shure. This is that Sealing power spoken of by Paul in other places see Ephe 1st 13–14 v that we may be sealed up unto the day of redemption, this principle ought (in its proper place) to be taught for God hath not revealed any thing to Joseph but what he will make known unto the Twelve & even the least saint may know all things as fast as he is able to bear them for the day must come when no man need say
~ Wilford Woodruff
the aff- ect of the Holy Ghost upon a gentile is to purge out the old blood & make him actually of the seed of Abram That man that has none of tehe Blood of Abram (naturally) must have a new creation by the Holy Ghost
~ Wilford Woodruff
The other com forter spoken off is a subject of great interest & perhaps understood by few of this generation. [ink change] After a person hath faith in Christ, repents of his sins & is baptized for the remission of his sins & receives the Holy Ghost (by the laying on of hands,) which is the first comforter then let him continue to humble himself before God hungering & thirsting after righteousness & living by every word of God, & the Lord will soon say unto him Son thou shalt be exalted, &c. When the Lord has thoroughly proved him & find that the man is determined to serve him at all hazard then the man will find

The spirit of revelation is in connexion with those blessings. A person may profit by noticeing the first intimations of the spirit of revelation for Instance when you feel pure intelligence flowing unto you it may give you sudden shak[e]s of Ideas that by noticing it you may find it fulfi- lled the same day or soon ie those things that were presented unto your minds by the

An Evangelist Is a patriarch even the oldest man of the Blood of Joseph or of the seed of Abram wharever the Church of Christ is esstablished in the earth there should be a patriarch for the benefit of the posterity of the Saints, as it was with Jacob in given [giving] his patriarchal blessing unto his sons &c.
~ Joseph Smith
Verily I say unto you who have assembled together that you may learn my will con- cerning the redemption of Zion mine afflicted people. Behold I say unto you, were it not for the transgressions of my people speaking concerning the Church & not individually they might have been redee- med even now, but behold they have not learned to be obedient to the things which I require at there hands but are full of all manner of evil and do not impart of their substance as becometh Saints, (to the poor & afflicted among them) and are not united according to the union required by the Law of the Celestial Kingdom.
~ Joseph Smith
it is expedient in me that mine Elders should weight for a little season for the redemption of Zion that they them- selves may be prepared & that my people may be taught more perfe- ctly concerning their duty & have experience & know more perfectly concerning their duty & the things which I require at their hands & this cannot be brought to pass untill mine Elders are endowed with power from on High for behold I have prepared a great endowment & blessing to be poured out upon them inasmuch as they are faithf ul, & continue in humility before me
~ Joseph Smith
I will fight your battles; Behold the destroyer I have already sent forth to destroy & lay waste mine enemies & not many years hence they shall not be left to pollute mine heritage & to blaspheme my name upon the land which I have consecrated for the gathering to gether of my Saints.

after your tribulations & the tribulations of your Brethren your redemption & the redemption of your brethren even their rede mption to the land of Zion to be established no more to be thrown down; nevertheless if they shall pollute their inheritance they shall be thrown down for I will not spare them if they pollute their Inheritances. Behold I say unto you that the redemption of Zion must needs come of power
~ Joseph Smith
Moses led the Children of Israel for ye are the Children of Israel & of the seed of Abram & ye m ust needs be led out of bondage by power & with an out stretched arm "even as your fathers were led" at the first even so shall the Redemption of Zion, therefore let not your hearts faint, for I say not unto you as I said unto your fathers, mine Andels shall go up before you & not my pre sence, but I say unto you mine angel shall go up before you & also my presence & in time ye shall possess the goodly land.
~ Joseph Smith
Let no man be afraid to lay down his life for my sake for whoso layeth down his life for my sake shall find it again & whoso is not willing to lay down his life for my sake is not my deciple.
~ Joseph Smith
It is a wrong spirit to speak evil of the authorities that God has set in his Church even the least of them to a deacon, for all heaven will respect the authority they have confered upon man on the Earth
~ parley p pratt
The spirit that opposes the authority of God is of the devel. We are acquainted with the course the devel persues in making trouble in the church of Christ. Satan is not so destitute of power as some suppose he is The Lord & all Heaven have had to wage war with him & his influence in Eterni ty, & it is by keeping the Law of God & giving heed to the officers of his church in order to overcome.
~ Wilford Woodruff
Tongues are not for the governments of the church but officers, some think the chur ch have no gifts unless they have tongues which is the least of all the church or gifts of the Church, why not pray for the gift of Wisdom faith knowledge & the least gifts

Your prayers have are acceptable before me & in answer to them I say unto you that you are now called im- mediately to make a solemn proclamation of my Gospel & of this Stake which I have planted, to be a corner stone of Zion, which shall be polished with that refinement which is after the samilitude of a palace. This proclamation shall be made to all the kings of the world to the four corners thereof to the honor- able president elect and the high- minded Governors of the Nation in which you live & to all the Nations of the earth, scattered abroad
