be done in order and by common consent in the , by the prayer of faith.
5 And thou shalt assist to settle all these things, according to the covenants of the church before thou shalt take thy journey among the . And it shall be given thee from the time that thou shalt go, untill the time that thou shalt return, what thou shalt do.

Revelation given in the presence of six elders, in , N,Y. September 1830.
Listen to the voice of Jesus Christ, your Redeemer, the Great I, AM, whose arm of mercy hath atoned for your sins; who will gather his people even as a hen gathereth her chickens under her wings, even as many as will hearken to my voice, and humble themselves before me, and call upon me in mighty prayer. Behold, verily, verily I say unto you, that at this time your sins are forgiven you, therefore you receive these things: but remember to sin no more, lest perils shall
come upon you.
2 Verily I say unto you, that you are chosen out of the world to declare my gospel with the sound of rejoicing, as with the voice of a trump: lift up your hearts and be glad, for I am in your midst, and am your advocate with the father; and it is his good will to give you the kingdom; and as it is written, Whatsoever ye shall ask in faith, being united in prayer according to my , ye shall receive; and ye are called to bring to pass the of mine elect,
for mine elect hear my voice, and harden not their hearts: where fore the decree hath gone forth from the Father, that they shall be gathered in unto one place, upon the face of this land, to prepare their hearts, and be prepared in all things, against the day when tribulation and desolation are sent forth upon the wicked: for the hour is nigh, and the day soon at hand, when the earth is ripe: and all the proud, and all <they> that do
wickedly, shall be as stubble, and I will burn them up, saith the lord of hosts, that wickedness shall not be upon the earth: for the hour is nigh, and that which was spoken by my hol mine apostles must be fulfilled; for as they spoke so shall it come to pass; for I will reveal myself from heaven with power, and great glory, with all the hosts thereof, and dwell in righteousness with men on earth a thousand years, and the
wicked shall not stand.
3 And again, verily, verily I say unto you, and it hath gone forth in a firm decree, by the will of the Father, that mine apostles, the twelve which were with me in my ministry at Jerusalem, shall stand at my right hand at the day of my coming in a pillar of fire, being clothed with robes of righteous ness, with crowns upon their heads, in glory even as I am, to judge the whole house of Israel, even as many as have loved me and kept my commandments, [p. 55]
