When the time comes for purchasing this land, we will have means. How this means will be brought about it is not for me to say. Perhaps the Lord will open up mines containing gold and silver, or in some other way as seemeth to Him best; wealth will be poured into the laps of the Latter-day Saints till they will scarcely know what to do with it. I will here again prophesy on the strength of former revelation that there are not a people now upon the face of the earth, so rich as the Latter-day Saints will be in a few years to come. Having their millions; therefore they will purchase the land, build up cities, towns, and villages, build a great capital city, at headquarters, in Jackson County, Missouri.

(Orson Pratt J.D. 21:136)

"Perhaps it may make some of you stumble, were I to ask you a question, does a man being a prophet in this church prove that he shall be the president of it? I answer no! A man may be a prophet, seer, and revelator, and it may have nothing to do with his being the president of the church.

(Brigham Young, Journal of Discourses 1:333)
