A revelation given at Kirtland, Ohio, 4 December 1831, through Joseph Smith Jr.: a few words in addition to the laws of the kingdom respecting the members of the church.

  1. They who are appointed by the holy spirit to go up unto Zion, and they who are privileged to go up unto Zion, let them carry up unto the bishop a certificate from three elders of the church, or a certificate from the bishop; otherwise, he who shall go up unto the land of Zion shall not be accounted a wise steward, this also an example. Amen.
