Revelation, circa March 1841 [D&C 125]

A Revelation given in the City of Nauvoo  in answer to the following interrogatory.
What is the will of the Lord concerning the  Saints in the Territory of Iowa?
Verily thus saith the Lord, I say unto you if those  who call themselves by <my> name, and are assaying to be  my saints, if they will do my will and keep my  commandments concerning them; let them gather them selves together unto the places which I shall appoint  unto them by my servant Joseph, and build up cities  unto my name, that they may be prepared for  that which is in store for a time to come. Let  them build up a city unto my name upon the  land opposite to the City of Nauvoo and let the  name of Zarahemla be named upon it. And let  all those who come from the east and the west, and  the north and the south that have desires to dwell  therein, take up their inheritances in the same, as  well as in the City of Nashville or in the City of  Nauvoo, and in all the stakes which I have appoin ted saith the Lord.
