A great and marvellous work is about to come forth among the children of men; behold I am God, and give heed unto my word which is quick and powerful sharper than a two edged sword to the dividing assunder of both joints and marrow; Therefor give heed to my word
2 Behold the field is white already to harvest; therefore whoso desireth to reap let him thrust in his sickle, with all his might and reap while the day lasts, that he may treasure up for his soul everlasting salvation in the kingdom of God; yea whoso will thrust in his sickle and reap the same is called of God. Therefore if you will ask of me you shall recieve, if you will knock it shall be opened unto you
3 Now as you have asked, behold I say unto you keep my commandments and seek to bring forth and establish the cause of Zion Seek not for riches but for wisdom, and behold the mysteries of God shall be unfolded unto you and then you be made rich behold he that hath eternal life is rich
4 Verily, verily, I say unto you, even as you desire of me, shall it be done unto you; and if you desire, you shall be the means of doing much good in this generation. Keep my commandments and assist to bring forth my work according to my commandments and you shall be blessed
5 Behold thou hast a gift, or thou shalt have a gift if thou wilt desire it of me in faith with on honest heart believing in the power of Jesus Chist or in my power who speaketh unto thee for behold it is I that speaketh behold I am the light which shineth in the darkness and by my power I give these words unto thee [p. 37]
