Government, in relation to the Indians (Lamanites) within Her territorial limits, and one of the most important points in the faith of the church of the Latter Day Saints, is, through the fulness of the everlasting Gospel, the gathering of Israel; (of whom the Lamanites constitute a part) The happy time when Jacob shall go up to the house of the Lord, to worship him in spirit and in truth; to live in holiness, when the Lord will restore his judges as at the first, and his counsellors as at the beginning; when every man may sit under his own vine and fig tree, and there will be none to molest or make afraid; when he will turn to them a pure language, and the earth will be filled with sacred knowledge, as the waters cover the great deep; when it shall no longer be said, the Lord lives that brought up the children of Israel out of the land of Egypt, but the Lord lives that brought up the children of Israel from the land of the North, and from all the lands whither he had driven them; yea, that day is one all-important to all men! And in view of it, with all the prophets have said; before us, we feel like dropping a few ideas in connexion with the official statements concerning the indians, from the General Government
In speaking of the gathering. we mean to be understood according to scripture, the gathering of the elect of the Lord, out of every nation on earth; and bringing them to the place of the Lord of Hosts, where the city of righteousness, shall be built, and where the people shall be of one heart and one mind when the Savior comes; yea, where the people shall walk with God like Enoch. and be free from Sin. The word of the Lord is precious, and when we read that the vail spread over all nations, will be destroyed, and the pure in heart see God, and live with him a thousand years on earth, we want all honest men, should have a chance to gather, and build up a city of righteousness, where even upon the bells of the Horses shall be written Holiness to the Lord.
