Revelation, 26 December 1835 [D&C 108]

The following is a revelation given to  Lyman Sherman this day 26 Dec 1835
Verily thus saith the Lord unto you my servant  Lyman your sins are forgiven you because you have  obeyed my voice in coming up hither this morning to  receive councel of him whom I have appointed
Therefore let your soul be at rest concerning  your spiritual standing, and resist no more my  voice, and arise up, and be more careful henceforth  in observing your vows which you have made  and do make, and you shall be blessed  with exceding great blessings. Wait patiently  untill the time when the solemn assembly  shall be called of my servants then you  shall be numbered with the first of mine  elders and receive right by ordination with  the rest of mine elders whom I have chosen
Behold this is the promise of the father  unto you if you continue faithful—
and it shall be fulfilled upon you in that  day that you shall have right to preach  my gospel wheresoever I shall send you  from henceforth from that time, Therefore  strengthen your brethren in all your conversation  in all your prayers, and in all your exhor tations, and in all your doings, and behold  and lo I am with you to bless you and  deliver you forever Amen [p. 90]
