What did John and Nephi see for our day?
Consider the separate nature of the Church and the Political Kingdom of God.
Matthew Grow, historian.
With regard to writing the Living Constitution:
The committee was ultimately unsuccessful. In a peculiar swing of events, the prophet proceeded to deliver a revelation from God in which the council members themselves were identified as a living constitution inasmuch as they sought divine aid.
In “The Council of Fifty,” Oman records the text of the revelation from the minutes, “Verily thus saith the Lord, ye are my constitution, and I am your God, and ye are my spokesmen. From henceforth do as I shall command you. Saith the Lord.”.
The council was to begin to establish the political Kingdom of God on earth just as the Church worked to bring to pass the religious purposes of God, preparatory to the millennial reign of Jesus Christ. During the second meeting of the council, Joseph Smith received a revelation declaring the name of the council to be “The Kingdom of God and his Laws, with the keys and power thereof, and judgement in the hands of his servants. Ahman Christ.”
The long-term goal of the council was to establish a government that would be prepared for Christ to assume the head of once he returned and began his millennial reign. Link
Nov. 2010 released from the First Presidencies office. With the release of the minutes of the Council of Fifty or the Political Kingdom of God, the Church wants ALL the world to know about this.
Simple goals, To seek Gods will in civic matters, to work with communities in building temples, and to assist in the temporal needs of all of God's children, regardless of race or religion.
How can we bring this spirit of councils, openness and integrity into business, education, government, and health fields? Into neighborhood Councils for this work?Why, because integrity is a key to understanding how the Kingdom of God within works - our Simple Living Centers.

Men and women working together with a common higher cause, and common interest in caring for the earth.
Joseph spoke of speaking our honestly and not becoming dough head.
I received a very detailed dream just before confirmation of this work by the Savior in the Korea Temple in March of 2017. Elder Bednar, in a wheel chair, was addressing a full congregation of Saints that were sitting down in a lower section of a main chapel, the level of the chapel seemed below ground level. Up on the left just above the congregation, I was holding up a simple cut out circle of the world, and he asked, What is that? I said it was a simple way to see the world. He came toward me to see it and then passed by me heading up some circular stairs to a higher level in front of the entire Church congregation. As he ascended up, there was an overweight woman that was dressed like a nurse on his left attempting to help him, and a large man (Like a Samoan) on his right, both assisting him as he went up the stairs that circled back around to the head of the congregation. As he passed by me his energy increased as if gliding up the stairs in his wheel chair. The woman or nurse on his left was falling behind, and the man on his right, was keeping up but struggling with his extra weight. . As Elder Bednar ascended to the top of the circular stair, and faced the congregation, the dream ended.
I would encourage you to follow his talks at conference. "We should not expect the Church as an organization to teach or tell us everything we need to know and do to become devoted disciples and endure valiantly to the end." April 2019 Conference. He continues.... We cannot rely exclusively upon or borrowed gospel light and knowledge from other people—even those whom we love and trust."
Vital temple preparation classes occur in our homes; important but secondary temple preparation classes also may be conducted periodically in our meetinghouses.
Making our homes sanctuaries wherein we can “stand in holy places”11 is essential in these latter days. And as important as home-centered and Church-supported learning is for our spiritual strength and protection today, it will be even more vital in the future.
“Perhaps for a little longer we cannot be physically in the temple, but is the temple in us? Are the covenants and ordinances in us?” Elder Bednar asked. “I think we have been compelled to reflect on, remember, and cherish temple covenants and ordinances in ways we may not have otherwise appreciated.”
