A Revelation given
July 23rd. 1837.
The word of the Lord unto concerning the of the Lamb.
Verily thus saith the Lord unto you my servant , I have heard thy prayers and thine alms
have come up as a memorial before me in behalf of those thy brethren who were chosen to bear testimony of my
name and to send it abroad among all nations, kindreds, tongues and people and through the
instrumentality of my servants.
Verily I say unto you there have been some few things in thine heart and with thee, with which I
the Lord was not well pleased; nevertheless inasmuch as thou hast abased thyself thou shalt be exalted:
therefore all thy sins are forgiven thee. Let thy heart be of good cheer before my face, and thou shalt bear
record of my name, not only unto the Gentiles, but also unto the Jews; and thou shalt send forth my word unto
the ends of the earth.
Contend thou therefore morning by morning, and day after day let thy warning voice go forth; and
when the night cometh let not the inhabitants of the earth slum ber because of thy speech. Let thy habitation be
known in , and remove not thy house, for I the Lord have a great work for you
<thee> to do, in publishing my name among the children of men, therefore gird up
your loins for the work. Let your feet be shod also for thou art chosen, and thy path lyeth among the mountains
and among many nations, and by thy word many high ones shall be brought low; and by thy word many low ones shall
be exalted, thy voice shall be a rebuke unto the transgressor, and at thy rebuke let the tongue of the slanderer
cease its perverseness. Be thou hum ble and the Lord thy God shall lead thee by the hand and give thee an answer
to thy prayers, I know thy heart and have heard thy prayers concerning thy brethren. Be not partial towards them
in love above many others, but let your love be for them as for yourself, and let your love abound unto all men
and unto all who love my name. And pray for your brethren of the twelve. Admonish them sharply for my name’s
sake, and let them be admonished for all their sins, and be ye faithful before me unto my name; and after their
temptations and much tribulation behold I the Lord will feel after them, and if they harden not their hearts and
stiffen not their necks against me they shall be converted and I will heal them.
Now I say unto you, and what I say [p. 72]
