190 years ago today - May 3, 1834

A conference of elders renames the Church of Christ to the Church of the Latter Day Saints at Sidney's suggestion. Joseph calls volunteers in Kirtland together, speaks for a short time, and seals them up to eternal life: we ware all Sealed up to Eternal Life by Joseph and said they should come forth in the day of the Lord if they comited sins they would be delivereth over to the bufetings of Satan for the destruction of the flesh but they should come forth in of the day of the Lord Jesus.
