The site for the city of Zion had been chosen. Church leaders had visited the area and dedicated it as a gathering place for the Saints. According to Joseph Smith’s history, β€œthe land of Zion was now the most important temporal object in view” (Doctrine and Covenants 63, section heading).

But views on Zion were mixed. Many Saints were eager to start gathering in Missouri. On the other hand, people like Ezra Booth were disappointed with the land of Zion and made their views known. In fact, when Joseph returned to Kirtland from Missouri, he found that dissension and apostasy had crept into the Church while he was away.

It was in this setting that the revelation in Doctrine and Covenants 63 was received. Here the Lord addressed purchasing land and moving the Saints to Missouri.

But among such practical matters was a timely reminder: β€œI, the Lord, utter my voice, and it shall be obeyed” (verse 5). His voice, His will, His commandβ€”all of which β€œ[come] from above”—should not be treated cynically or casually. It β€œis sacred, and must be spoken with care” (verse 64).
