[Apostle Wilford Woodruff Journal] 21st Sunday I met at the stand some of the Twelve & the congregation. O Pratt addressed the congregation upon the subject of the resurrection which was interesting to us all. Some had been teaching the doctrin that the resurrection was by birth or through the womb but Br Pratt showed the folly of such a doctrin, & Proved by many revelations that the dead were raised by the power of God & the Blowing of the Trump of Michael the Ark Angel who was Father Adam & that the graves of the Saints would be opened & their Bodies would come forth out of their graves according to the visions of Ezekiel & many of the prophets. He showed that However miracalous it might appear unto us it was Just as easy for God to perform this work as it was to turn water into wine or make Bread without flour to feed a multitude.
