Joseph Smith Quotes
I calculate to be one of the instruments of setting up the kingdom of Daniel by the word of the Lord, and I intend to lay a foundation that will revolutionize the whole world. . . . It will not be by sword or gun that this kingdom will roll on: the power of truth is such that all nations will be under the necessity of obeying the Gospel.

Jehovah has promised should be made known in His own due time unto His servants, to prepare the earth for the return of His glory.
