Further light and knowledge concerning the Political Kingdom of God including a revelation cocerning the same given to John Taylor, third President of the Church in 1882:
Years later when John Taylor was president of the Church, a revelation given to the Church stated: "Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you. I called you by my servant Joseph, and by my servant Brigham, and by my servant John. You did not teach and instruct me; but I have taught and instructed you and organized you according to my eternal laws. Ye are my Constitution, and I am your God; and I will be acknowledged; and my will and my word and my law shall bear rule in my Kingdom, saith the Lord. If it does not, then it is not my Kingdom, and then are ye not my spokesmen; saith the Lord. For if it is by the wisdom of man, by the intelligence of man, and under the direction of man, then it is a Kingdom of man and not of me, and I acknowledge it not, saith the Lord God. Have I not instructed you in all that you know, and is not this Kingdom organized and directed by revelation from me? Is it not called the Kingdom of God? If, therefore, it is not my Kingdom, why do you make use of my name and invoke my authority and my aid? Is this Kingdom not called, the kingdom of God and his laws, with the keys and power thereof, and judgment in the hands of his servants. Amen Christ."
