Blood Is Corrupted and Must Be Replaced with the Spirit of God before Entering God’s Presence — George Laub Account (May 12, 1844)
Flesh and Blood cannot inherit the kingdom of god or the kingdom that god inhabits But the flesh without the blood and the spirit of god flowing in the veins in the stead of the blood for blood is the part of the body that causes corruption therefore we must be changd in the twinkling of an Eye or have to lay down these tabernacles and leave the blood vanish away therefore Jesus Christ left his blood to atone for the sins of the world that he might ascend into the presents of the father for god dwells in flaming flames and he is a consuming fire he will consume all that is uncleen and unholy and we could not abide his presents unless pure spirits in us. for the Blood is the corruptible part of the tabernacles— for the resurection of the dead is devised to take away coruption and make man perfect or in the glory which he was created for the body is sown in coruption and raised in Incorruption then we will be able to go in the presents of godDiscourse, 12 May 1844, as Reported by George Laub, p. 22, The Joseph Smith Papers.
