NOAH (Teachings of Joseph Smith)

Authority, Calling, Office, & Priesthood Obtained by Noah — Willard Richards (Between circa June 26 & August 4, 1839)

The Priesthood was.first given To Adam: he obtained the first Presidency & held the Keys of it, from genration to Generation; he obtained it in the creation before the world was formed as in Gen. 1, 26:28,— he had dominion given him over every living Creature. He is Michael, the Archangel, spoken of in the Scriptures,— Then to Noah who is Gabriel, he stands next in authority to Adam in the Priesthood; he was called of God to this office & was the Father of all living in his day, & To him was Given the Dominion. These men held keys. first on earth, & then in Heaven.

Discourse, between circa 26 June and circa 4 August 1839–A, as Reported by Willard Richards, p. 63, The Joseph Smith Papers.

Keys, Covenants, Power, and Glory That Adam Held Were Conferred upon Noah — Robert B. Thompson (Circa October 5, 1840)

And Lamech lived 182 years and begat a Son and he called his name Noah saying this same shall comfort us concerning our work and the toil of our hands because of the ground which the Lord has Curst.” The priesthood continued from Lamech to Noah Gen 6 Chap 13 verse. And God said unto Noah the end of all flesh is before me, for the earth is filled with violence through them, and behold I will destroy them with the earth,” thus we behold the keys of this priesthood consisted in obtaining the voice of Jehovah that he talked with him in a familiare and friendly manner, that he continued to him the keys, the covenants, the power and the glory with which he blessed Adam at the beginning and the offring of sacrifice which also shall be continued at the last time. for all the ordinances and duties that ever have been required by the priesthood under the directions and commandments of the Almighty in any of the dispensations, shall all be had in the last dispensations
