Revelation, September 1830–A [D&C 29]

Die as to the temporal death untill I the Lord God should send forth Angels to declare unto them Repentance & redemption through faith on the name of mine only begotten Son & thus did I the Lord God appoint unto man the days of his probation that by his natural death he might be raised in immortality unto eternal life even as many as would believe on my name & they that believe not unto eternal damnation for they cannot be redeemed from their spiritual fall Because they repent not for they love darkness more than light & their deeds are evil & they receive their wages of whom they list to obey But Behold I say unto you that little children are redeemed from the foundation of the world through mine only begotten Wherefore they cannot sin for power is not given to Satan to tempt little children until they begin to be accountable before me for it is given unto them even as I will according to mine own pleasure that great things may be required at the hand of their fathers & again I say unto you that whoso having knowledge have not I commanded
