The Foundation of Zion Volume 2
The true history of God’s dealings with man goes all the way back to Adam and the line of patriarchs which descended from him. They held God’s Priesthood by covenant. Adam said that this same Priesthood that was in the beginning of the world will be in the end of the world, also. The Restoration, begun by Joseph Smith will not be complete until we have recovered this ancient religion and used its principles to build the Zion, which will then be joined with Enoch’s Zion of old, prior to the return of the Lord Jesus Christ.
This is what is meant by the coming of Elijah to plant in the hearts of the children the promises made to the fathers. We need to become acquainted with those fathers and continue the work they began.
Hidden Treasures & Promises (1990 Edition) (Foundation of Zion Volume 1)
This is a modern testament of Jesus Christ. It is a latter-day equivalent of a “Doctrine & Covenants”. It describes one community’s search for a knowledge of who they are and how they fit into God’s plans. In response, the Lord gave them instruction and knowledge which applies not only to them, but applies to all peoples and to all parts of the Restoration. Indeed, the Restoration embraces ALL peoples, not just the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter- Day Saints.
But, like the Book of Mormon, this book documents the downfall of a people who let their pride and love of power and office get the best of them. Nevertheless, the original ideas upon which this book was revealed and compiled are still relevant today, some 25 years later.
Joseph Smith: Lectures on Faith
Lectures delivered to early church authorities on the subject of faith. One of the best dissertations on the subject of faith ever given. Originally, the “doctrine” portion of the Doctrine & Covenents.
Revelations to John Taylor and Wilford Woodruff
Yes, the presidents of the LDS church have received revelation. At least they used to receive revelations. Mormon fundamentalists cite these revelations to support their belief in polygamy, but in reality these revelations teach a much greater subject: The New and Everlasting Covenant, which takes in much more than just plural marriage. These revelations also make clear the distinction beetween the church and the Kingdom of God, and explain their relationship to one another.
