One evidence still further that Joseph Smith is a true prophet is found from the Book of Mormon, which parallels the revelation which I received that there are further offices in the Priesthood which are superior to those found in the Church described in D&C 107.
 
1  AND now it came to pass that the persecutions which were inflicted on the church by the unbelievers became so great that the church began to murmur, and complain to their leaders concerning the matter; and they did complain to Alma.  And Alma laid the case before their king, Mosiah.  And Mosiah consulted with his priests.  (Book of Mormon | Mosiah 27:1)
 
This shows a Council of Priesthood existed independently of the Church, if one believes the Book of Mormon, which Mr. Hale has said that he does not, but I know that it is true literally.this of course has to do with the Political Kingdom of God, which Joseph Smith organized just prior to his martyrdom in 1844. Brigham Young said regarding the function of the King:
 
"This (Church) is what we are in the habit of calling the Kingdom of God. But there are further organizations. The Prophet gave a full and complete organization of this kingdom the spring before he was killed. . . . The Kingdom of God will protect every person, every sect and all people upon the face of the whole earth in their legal rights;"
