Doctrine and Covenants, 1844

and come to their inheritances; they and their  children, with songs of everlasting joy; to  build up the waste places of Zion. And all  these things, that the prophets might be full  filled. And behold, there is none other place ap pointed than that which I have appointed; neith er shall there be any other place appointed than  that which I have appointed for the work of  the gathering of my saints, until the day  cometh when there is found no more room for  them; and then I have other places which I  will appoint unto them, and they shall be call ed stakes, for the curtains, or toe [the] strength of  Zion.
Behold it is my will, that all they who call  on my name, and worship me according to  mine everlasting gospel, should gather togeth er and stand in holy places, and prepare for  the revelation which is to come when the vei[l]  of the covering of my temple, in my taberna cle, which hideth the earth, shall be taken off,  and all flesh shall see me together. And eve ry corruptible thing, both of man, or of the  beasts of the field, or of the fowls of the hea vens, or of the fish of the sea, that dwell upon  all the face of the earth, shall be consumed;  and also, that of element shall melt with fer vent heat; and all things shall become new, that  my knowledge and glory may dwell upon all  the earth. And in that day the enmity of  man, and the enmity of beasts; yea, the en mity of all flesh shall cease from before my  face. And in that day whatsoever any man  shall ask it shall be given unto him. And in  that day satan shall not have power to tempt [p. 367]
