Revelation and Letter to William Marks and Newel K. Whitney, 8 July 1838 [D&C 117]

and when he falls he shall rise again, for his Sacrafice shall be  more sacred to me than his increase saith the Lord. Therefore let him  come up hither speedily unto the land of Zion & in due time he  shall be made a merchant unto my name Saith the Lord for the  benifit of my people. Therefore let no man let no man  despise my Servt. Oliver Granger but the blessings of my people be on  him forever & Ever— And again verily I say unto you let all my  Servts. in the land of Kirtland remember the Lord their God & mine house  also to preserve it holy & to overthrow the money changers in mine own  due time Saith the Lord
By this you will understand the will of the Lord concerning you &  will doubtless act accordingly— It would be wisdom for all  the Saints that <can> come this Summer to Come & make an effort to do  so as soon it will be better for them If they cannot sel their  property let them turn it out on the debts & when the Lord  lift us all up they will rise with the rest, but let none think  to get property whenever they get <come> here for there is none for them  at present but there will be— There is a note in the hands of Eth  Spencer it was money borrowed for a man by the name of Colgrove,  to put into the Bank if it is possible turn out property to satisy it,  as Spencer is almost dead about it— There need be no fear in  the Saints coming up here there are provisions or will be in great  abundance of all kinds indeed there is a plenty now neither has  there been a scarcity at any time since we come
We leave you in the hands of the Lord asking the blessings of  Salvation to rest upon you
Your brethren in Christ Jesus
