Oliver Cowdery writes Missouri brethren: ... tribulation "would not have come uopn Zion had it not been for rebelion"--rebellion against Joseph and all officers down to the least. ... therefore, brethren purge them out, & have no confidence in any except as such as will lay down their lives for this sacred cause for none others are worthy of it. ... there was no other way to cleanse the church. ... yet the elect will be saved, & Zion will be the joy of al saints & they will possess her forever & ever; ...the Son of righteousness will soon appear with healing in his wings ...
