170 years ago today - Jan 30, 1853

P. P. Pratt preached. His Subject was the Kingdom of God which was to be set up in the last days. ... those that wished to save their lives will flee to Zion for safety for they will be the ownly people that will not be at war one with another. ...

Elder Amasa Lyman followed ... we believe that when God said he would set up a kingdom which should break in peaces all other Kingdoms & stand forever that He will perform what He has spoken. The Lord has said that that Nation that fought against Zion should be broaken in peaces & utterly wasted away & while the Elders are gathering the Saints from all Nations & Kingdoms & will continue untill the windingup scene we can make some Calculation what Zion is destined to be.
