became our zealous friends and assistants in the work and being very anxious to know the will of the Lord concerning them after much solicitation I inquired of the Lord through the Urim & Thummin and received the following Revelations
1 A great and marvelous work is about to come forth unto 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 marrows therefore give heed unto my word
2 Behold the field is white already to harvest therefore whoso desireth to reap let him thrust in his sickle with his might and reap while the day lasts, that he may treasure up for his soul everlasting salvation in the Kingdom of God; Yea whosoever will thrust in his sickle and reap the same is called of God; Therefore if you will ask of me you shall receive if you will knock it shall be opened unto you.
3 Seek to bring forth and establish my Zion. Keep my commandments and endure to the end and you shall have eternal life which gift is the greatest of all the gifts of God. 4 And it shall come to pass that if you shall ask the father in my name in faith beleiving you shall receive the Holy Ghost which giveth utterance that you may stand as a witness of the things which you shall both have and see, and that you may declare repentance unto this generation
5 Behold I am Jesus Christ the son of the living God who created the heavens and the earth, light which cannot be hid in darkness, wherefore I must bring forth the fullness of my Gospel from the Gentiles unto the house of Israel and behold thou art David
