Preface

After a long night of darkness, which has covered Christendom like a pall, the light of Heaven has again burst forth to cheer and bless mankind. The keys of knowledge, long lost from among men, have been, with the Priesthood, once more restored to the earth. For centuries there has been no man in Christendom authorised to say "Thus saith the Lord;" and men have had to be dependent upon the knowledge and experience of those who in former generations received the revelations of Jesus. But now this has changed. Through the Gospel which has been restored, with the Priesthood, in its fulness and purity, the mind of the Lord respecting the inhabitants of the earth is being made known unto men.

The Journal of Discoveries goes forth to the world as another record corroborating those already extant, bearing the same testimony to the immutable principles of salvation which they have borne, and giving additional light upon many points concerning the salvation of this generation on which they are silent. All men can be profited by perusing its pages and pondering over the words of truth and salvation as they flow in beautiful simplicity and power from the mouths of the Living Oracles.

That this Volume may go forth and fill its destined mission, and remain an imperishable memento of God's kindness and his desire to save His erring children, is the prayer of the

EDITOR.
