John Taylor's Revelations: April 14, 1883

Revelation Received through John Taylor on Saturday, April, 14, 1883, at Salt Lake City, Utah Territory.  (John Taylor Papers, LDS Archives; see also Messages of the First Presidency 2:354).  This revelation is a continuation of the revelation previously received in October 1882.  Both the October Revelation and this one further organize the Quorums of the Seventies, with President Taylor asking, "Show unto us Thy will, O Lord, concerning the organization of the Seventies.":

What ye have written is My will, and is
acceptable unto Me:
2 And furthermore: Thus saith the LORD unto
the First Presidency, unto the Twelve, unto the
Seventies and unto all My holy Priesthood, let not
your hearts be troubled, neither be ye concerned
about the management and organization of My
Church and Priesthood and the accomplishment
of My work.
3 Fear Me and observe My laws and I will reveal
unto you, from time to time, through the
channels that I have appointed, everything that
shall be necessary for the future development and
perfection of My church,
4 For the adjustment and rolling forth of My
kingdom, and for the building up and the
establishment of My Zion.
5 For ye are My Priesthood and I am your God.
Even so. Amen.
