It may not be yours. In the D&C between Declaration 1 and 2 is Excepts from Three Addresses by Pres. Wilford Woodruff. In it he discusses with the Saints what the Lord has shown him would happen to the leadership and to our temples should the saints defy the unconstitutional ruling against polygamy. The one point he wanted understood is that the temples were to stay with the Saints as we have a work to do. I know for myself that the Lord is very aware of the wicked designs and conspiracies of men. He will let them have their day and do what they must and he will allow it. But we must be able to continue with our temples. I also know for myself that our day will come, but it has to be in the Lord's time. These wicked people will never be able to run God a muck. So I continue watching all the signs, preparing, attend the temple for my own kindred dead and patiently wait.
You should notice that I was talking about We not the church. I have read the "statement" many times. Thanks
