Doctrine and Covenants, 1844

ding to the laws of my church, and shall be de livered over to the buffetings of satan until the  day of redemption.
6 And now verily I say unto you, and this  is wisdom, make unto yourselves friends with  the mammon of unrighteousness, and they will  not destroy you. Leave judgment alone with  me, for it is mine and I will repay. Peace be  with you; my blessings continue with you, for  even yet the kingdom is yours, and shall be  forever if you fall not from your steadfastness;  even so: Amen.

Revelation, 25 January 1832–A, B [D&C 75]

Revelation given January, 1832.
1 Verily, verily I say unto you, I who speak  even by the voice of my Spirit; even Alpha  and Omega, your Lord and your God: heark en, O ye who have given your names to go  forth to proclaim my gospel, and to prune my  vineyard. Behold I say unto you, that it is  my will that you should go forth and not tarry,  neither be idle, but labor with your mights, lif ting up your voices as with the sound of a  trump, proclaiming the truth according to the  revelations and commandments which I have  given you, and thus if ye are faithful ye shall  be laden with many sheaves, and crowned  with honor, and glory, and immortality, and  eternal life.
2 Therefore verily I say unto my servant  William E. McLel[l]in, I revoke the commission [p. 341]
