Journal of Discourses 16:162;  “Every blessing the Lord proffers to his people is on conditions. These conditions are: Obey my law, keep my commandments, walk in my ordinances, observe my statutes, love mercy,… keep yourselves pure in the law, and then you are entitled to these blessings, and not until then.” Brigham Young, Paris, Idaho, August 31, 1873

Journal of Discourses 4:297 – 298; “It was not for me to question whether Joseph was dictated by the Lord at all times and under all circumstances or not I never had the feeling for one moment, to believe that any man or set of men or beings upon the face of the whole earth had anything to do with him, for he was superior to them all, and held the keys of salvation over them…

It was not my prerogative to call him in question with regard to any act of his life…

if He should suffer him to lead the people astray, it would be because they ought to be led astray. If He should suffer them to be chastised, and some of them destroyed, it would be because they deserved it…” – Brigham Young. Great Salt Lake City, March 29, 1857

Journal of Discourses 4:41; “I have frequently told you, and I tell you again, that the very report of the Church and kingdom of God on earth is a terror to all nations, wheresoever the sound thereof goeth. The sound of “Mormonism” is a terror to towns, counties, states, the pretended republican governments, and to all the world. …

If I were to forsake this kingdom, the car of righteousness would roll over and crush me into insignificance; and so it will every other man that gets out of the right path.” – Brigham Young, Great Salt Lake City, August 31, 1856

 June 18 – What more could He give or do? Heb. 9:11-12; “But Christ being come and high priest of good things to come, by a greater and more perfect tabernacle, not made with hands, that is to say, not of this building; Neither by the blood of goats and calves, but by his own blood he entered in once into the holy place, having obtained eternal redemption for us”.

 Journal of Discourses, 3:205-206; “…God never bestows upon His people, or upon an individual, superior blessings without a severe trial to prove they will keep their covenants with Him…For this express purpose the Father withdrew His spirit from His son, at the time he was to be crucified.

Jesus had been with his Father, talked with Him, dwelt in His bosom, and knew all about heaven, about making the earth, about the transgression of man, and what would redeem the people, and that he was the character who was to redeem the sons of earth, and the earth itself from all sin that had come upon it.

The light, knowledge, power, and glory with which he was clothed were far above, or exceeded that of all others who had been upon the earth after the fall, consequently at the very moment, at the hour when the crisis came for him to offer up his life, the Father withdrew Himself, withdrew His Spirit, and cast a veil over him.

That is what made him sweat blood. If he had had the power of God upon him, he would not have sweat blood; but all was withdrawn from him, and a veil was cast over him, and he then plead with the Father not to forsake him. ‘No,’ says the Father, ‘you must have your trials, as well as the others.’” – Brigham Young, Great Salt Lake City, February 17, 1856 [emp. mine]
