Consecrate, Law of Consecration

To dedicate, to make holy, or to become righteous. The law of consecration is a divine principle whereby men and women voluntarily dedicate their time, talents, and material wealth to the establishment and building up of God’s kingdom.

  • Consecrate yourselves to day to the Lord:Ex. 32:29;
  • All that believed had all things common:Acts 2:44–45;
  • They had all things common among them; therefore there were not rich and poor:4 Ne. 1:3;
  • The Lord explained the principles of consecration:D&C 42:30–39; ( D&C 51:2–19; D&C 58:35–36; )
  • One man should not possess more than another:D&C 49:20;
  • Every man was given an equal portion according to his family:D&C 51:3;
  • An order was established so that the Saints could be equal in bonds of heavenly and earthly things:D&C 78:4–5;
  • Every man was to have equal claim according to his wants and needs:D&C 82:17–19;
  • Zion can only be built up by the principles of celestial law:D&C 105:5;
  • The people of Enoch were of one heart and one mind and dwelt in righteousness, and there were no poor among them:Moses 7:18;
