190 years ago today - Late December 1830

"Soon after" the Enoch revelation was received , Joseph Smith receives another revelation (D&C 37) in Canandaigua (NY) instructing him and Sidney Rigdon to stop their revision of the Bible until they move to Ohio . Lucy Smith says that the revelation was received in the "later part" of December . The revelation instructs: "ye shall not go until ye have preached my gospel in those parts, and have strengthened up the church whithersoever it is found, and more especially in Colesville".
