Revelation, May 1829–A [D&C 11]

convincing of men: but now hold your peace; study  my word which hath gone forth among the children  of men; and also study my word which shall come  forth among the children of men; or that which  you are translating: Yea, until you have obtained  all which I shall grant unto the children of men in  this generation; and then shall all things be added  thereunto.
11 Behold thou art Hyrum, my son; seek the  kingdom of God and all things shall be added ac cording to that which is just. Build upon my Rock,  which is my gospel; deny not the Spirit of revela tion, nor the Spirit of prophecy, for wo unto him  that denieth these things: therefore, treasure up in  your hearts until the time which is in my wisdom,  that you shall go forth: Behold I speak unto all  who have good desires, and have thrust in their  sickles to reap.
12 Behold I am Jesus Christ, the Son of God: I  am the life and the light of the world: I am the  same which came unto my own, and my own re ceived me not: but verily, verily I say unto you,  that as many as receiveth me, them will I give  power to become the sons of God, even to them that  believe on my name: Amen. [p. 30]

Soon after Samuel Smith returned to New York from a visit with JS and Emma Smith at Harmony, Pennsylvania, in spring 1829, another of JS’s brothers, Hyrum, journeyed to their residence. This revelation provided instructions to Hyrum regarding his personal life and his role in advancing the work.
The earliest extant copy of this revelation is found in the 1833 Book of Commandments.
