“We will build up our Zion
the pattern that God will show
us, and we will be governed by his law and submit to his
authority and be governed by
the holy priesthood and by the word and will of
God. And then when the time comes that
these calamities we read of, shall overtake the earth, those that are prepared will have the power of
translation, as they had in former times, and the city will be translated. And Zion that
is on the earth will rise, and the Zion above will descend, as we are
told, and we will meet and fall on each other's necks and embrace and kiss
each other. And thus the purposes of God to a certain extent will then be
fulfilled. But there are a great many
things to be brought about before that time. And we are here in an organized capacity trying
to prepare ourselves for all the providences of the Almighty. We are
trying to instill into the hearts of the people the principles of honesty,
truth and integrity, and remove covetousness and iniquity of every
kind.” John Taylor,
“1880” Journal of Discourses Volume 21:253- 255
At another time he
said: “We are gathered here for the express purposes of
God; the world, however, do not understand it. But I tell you what they
will do, by-and-by. You
will see them flocking
to Zion by thousands and tens of thousands; and they will say, "We don't
know anything about your religion, we
don't care much about religious
matters, but you are honest and honorable, and upright and just, and you
have a good, just and secure government, and we
want to put ourselves under your protection, for we cannot feel safe anywhere
else." There is a scripture which says, the time will
come "when he that will not take up his
sword to fight against his neighbor, must needs flee to Zion for safety." And they will come. But we must prepare
ourselves; we have got to have the
invigorating influence of the Spirit of God to permeate all of our
organizations, all feeling that we are under the guidance and protection
of the Almighty, every man in his place, and every man according to the
order of the priesthood in which God has placed him.” John Taylor, “1878” Journal of Discourses 20: 137

“In a very early
period of the history of this Church, when in its infancy, the Lord said unto us, in a
revelation which is contained in the Doctrine and Covenants, "He that is Tithed shall not be burned."(DC 64:23-24) In several of the revelations the subject of
Tithing is referred to in a general way; but the special revelation on
that subject was given at Far West, Missouri, in July, 1838, in answer to
the question, "O Lord, shew unto thy servants
how much thou
requirest of the
properties of thy people for Tithing."
And by this revelation we learned that we
were required to consecrate all of
our surplus property for the purposes
mentioned therein, and after doing that to pay annually one-tenth of our
increase. This means increase from every
source. For instance, if a man depend only upon the labor of his
own hands, than one-tenth of his earnings would be his lawful Tithing. But
if in addition to this he possess teams or employ other labor, then the
increase of such labor should also be Tithed. Again, if he should be
engaged opening up farms, building or making other improvements, thus
accumulating a surplus around him, one-tenth of the increase of such
property would be due, as Tithing, as well as a tenth of his labor
combined. Then again, should part of his surplus property be in such a
condition as to enable him to invest it in any branch of business, one-tenth of the profits arising there from is due as
Tithing; or should he have money loaned out on interest, on every
dollar so accumulated the sum of ten cents belongs to the Lord, in accordance to his law regulating the Tithing of his
people; and so on, this law strictly applying to our income derived from
It is not,
as some verily suppose, the Tithing of what you may have left after
deducting all of your expenses; or in
other words, after spending all you can. There are some calling themselves
Latter-day Saints who try to appease their conscience in the belief that
Tithing means the tenth of what may be left after deducting all expenses,
which would amount to this: "What we cannot spend we will give a tenth of
that as our Tithing." How much, my brethren and sisters, do you think the
Lord would get if all of us felt and acted so?
I will here
say, that when this law of Tithing was revealed, in 1843, the Lord said, "This shall be a
standing law unto them forever," and
"shall be an ensample unto all the Stakes of Zion." And we are also told
that all who observe not this law should not be found worthy to abide among the people
of God. And the
Lord further says, "If my people observe not this
law, to keep it holy, and
by this law sanctify the land of Zion unto me, that my statutes and my
judgments might be kept therein, that it may be most holy, behold, verily,
I say unto you, it shall not be a land of Zion unto you" This was the word of the Lord to his people at
that early day, and it has never changed, but is in
force to this day and will remain so forever. Unless certain conditions
are complied with, this chosen land cannot be a land of Zion unto
us.” Erastus Snow JD 19: 336-337

presumably also on occasion known as "second anointings." Since the sacred nature of Temple ordinances and
ceremonies restricts their discussion outside
the Temples it is pointless to make much comment on this letter. It
is interesting, however, that President Snow restored a practice obtaining
in the administrations of Brigham Young and John
Taylor but which had been suspended during the
administration of Wilford Woodruff. As supplementary material to this

During the lifetime of
the late President Wilford Woodruff a rule was established by him
not to permit
a woman to be anointed to a
man unless she had lived with him as a wife. This was a
restriction of the rule in such cases which obtained during the
lifetime of Presidents Brigham Young and
John Taylor. After considering the matter we have concluded to restore the practice as expressed in the following, and which will
govern in such cases in the future:
who has been sealed to a man in life or
by proxy, whether she has lived with him or
not, shall have the privilege of being
him inasmuch as (as) he shall have had his second blessings.

“Did the people carry out this law? No.
Why? Because they had imbibed the
notions which had prevailed among the people of the whole earth, and these
notions were in direct opposition to the order of heaven. The notions and
traditions of the world were that every man must be for himself, every
family for themselves, and they must labor with their might, mind and
strength to gain all they possibly could gain, and use it only for
themselves and their generations after them, caring nothing at all about
their neighbors. These traditions had been instilled into our minds,
and we were too full of covetousness and of false notions about property
to carry out the law of God, and
hence many, when they came up to Zion, looked abroad upon that beautiful,
rich soil, and the excellent groves of timber, and the fine prairies and
meadows, with springs breaking forth in numerous places, as they do in
Jackson County, and their souls lusted after these things, and the rich
man said, "No, I will not consecrate all my property, I will go the General
Land Office and purchase for myself, and I will buy largely in order that
I may sell to my poor brethren when they come up here. I will buy land and
speculate upon it, and make my fortune." That was the feeling which
existed in the hearts of some of the Latter-day Saints. God saw this, and
reproved us by revelation, and he said to the people of Jackson County, by
the mouth of his servant Joseph, that if they did not
repent of this
covetousness he would pluck them up and send them out of Zion, for said he, "The rebellious are not of the blood
of Ephraim, wherefore they shall be plucked up, and sent away out of the
land." God fulfilled this revelation—he did pluck
up the people; he
did cast them away out of
that land in the year
1833. Some two
years and a few months after we first began to settle that country we were
cast out of the land—plucked up, just as
the Lord had predicted, and we were told that it
was because of our
sins and covetousness that we were sent away.
But let me refer you to the fullness of the law of
tithing, for, although an inferior law, I fear that, as a people we
have not kept it. The first part of that
law requires every man, when he comes into the midst of the people of
God, to consecrate
all his surplus
property, reserving to himself a certain portion. This is not a full
consecration like the higher law.
Latter-day Saints, have we kept this inferior law? Has the man who
possessed great riches, when he came to these mountains, and numbered
himself with the people of God, consecrated all his surplus property, and afterwards paid a tenth of all his annual
income? I will tell you what we have done—as a general thing we, rich and poor, have kept all the
property we had when we came here, and some have consecrated one-tenth part of
their income, and so far as this is
concerned the people have no doubt done very well, with some few
exceptions; and I am happy to be able to state, from information I have
obtained from some of the Bishops of the Church, that the Latter-day
Saints, now, are showing more determination to pay their tithing, than
they ever have done heretofore.
But let us
come back to the other portion of this inferior law. Have we felt a disposition to consecrate our
surplus property? Go east, west, north and south, into all our
settlements, and you will find that the men are
few and far between who
consecrated their surplus property,
when they came here. In the first place, there have been but few wealthy
persons who have come amongst us, and the people
have been their own judges. Every man thought that he had no surplus, when
he came here. If he had a hundred thousand dollars on his arrival
he has said or thought, "O, I have made such and such calculations. I wish
to become a merchant in the midst of the people, and I need thousands and
thousands of dollars to set me up. I wish to make thirty, forty, fifty or
a hundred per cent out of these poor people, and to enable me to do so I
do not think that any of this hundred thousand dollars can be called
surplus property. I need it all, I can not carry on my merchandising
unless I have it all to set me up.”

Hospital in Salt Lake City after my plane crash.

I had my oldest son push me
the two blocks to church in my wheelchair. I was cast both legs from the
waist down to my toes.
And had a cast on my right arm from my fingers
to my shoulder.
I had him push me into the Bishop’s office and
excuse himself so I could talk to the Bishop. There I told the Bishop I
had learned on the other side of the veil that I had to consecrate everything to the Lord.
I then had over 1000 acres of
prime farmland with sprinkler systems on all of it. And more than another
1000 acres ( 2 square miles) of range for cattle. Big long haul trucks and
trailers, farm machinery, and homes, and silos with over $150,000 dollars
worth of grain in them. And about $100,000 dollars in bailed hay stacked
ready to sell.
The Bishop was amazed and
dumbfounded, and said he never heard of such a thing and that he would
have to talk to the Stake President.
He then talked with the General
Authorities in SLC and I went up to see them. The LDS Church President Gordon B. Hinckley has been
in my home for a visit. Then about six months later I was
excommunicated from the LDS Church. Because I believed what I was
told and they said that I was apostate. Not the end of the story. Now see who has received the promise from Jesus
Christ. And read around on my web site and
