Doctrine & Covenants 107:84
“Thus, none shall be exempted from the justice and the laws of God, that all things may be done in order and in solemnity before him, and according to truth and righteousness.”
In section 107, the Lord gives instructions on the organization of the leadership of the Church and explains the responsibilities of priesthood holders. The leadership is organized into quorums such as the First Presidency, the Twelve Apostles, and the quorums of the Seventy. These leaders are called to preach the gospel and meet together to make decisions in righteousness, holiness, and meekness. Each office of the priesthood has certain duties and responsibilities.
The priesthood was given to Adam, who ordained many of his descendants. Section 107 tells of a gathering where Adam met with his family and gave them his last blessing. Sections 106 and 108 give guidance to Warren A. Cowdery and Lyman Sherman to help them to fulfill their priesthood callings.
“Ultimately, all keys of the priesthood are held by the Lord Jesus Christ, whose priesthood it is. He is the one who determines what keys are delegated to mortals and how those keys will be used.” Dallin H. Oaks
