United Order to be Forever – Then Again Maybe Not
D&C 104:1, 47, 53; “1 Verily I say unto you, my friends, I give unto you counsel, and a commandment, concerning all the properties which belong to the order which I commanded to be organized and established, to be a united order, and an everlasting order for the benefit of my church, and for the salvation of men until I come— And now, a commandment I give unto you concerning Zion, that you shall no longer be bound as a united order to your brethren of Zion, only on this wise— Therefore, you are dissolved as a united order with your brethren, that you are not bound only up to this hour unto them, only on this wise, as I said, by loan as shall be agreed by this order in council, as your circumstances will admit and the voice of the council direct.”
Prophecy given on April 23, 1834. Also see History of the Church 2:54-60.
Good grief, make up your mind.
At this time in Mormon history the Church was under immense pressure. A few weeks after this prophecy was given “Zion’s Camp” marched to the Mississippi River area on May 4th and settled in Jackson Co Missouri by the end of June.
