Revelation, 15 June 1831 [D&C 56]

59th. Commandment June 15th. 1831
Thomas [B.] Marsh was desirous to know what he should do as the  Lord had commanded him & Ezra Thayer to take their Journey to the  land of Missorie but Thayer could not get ready as he said soon as  Thomas wanted that he should & these are the words of the Lord as follows1

John Whitmer likely created this heading when he copied the text into Revelation Book 1.  

 
Hearken O ye people which Profess my name saith the lord your God  for Behold mine anger is kindeled against the rebelious & they shall know  mine arm & mine indignation in the day of visitation & of wrath upon  the Nations & he that will not take up his cross & follow me & keep  my commandments the same shall not be saved behold I the Lord comman deth & he that will not obey shall be cut off in mine own due time [p. 91]
