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 Repent ance & 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 word 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 will  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 to  Repent & he that hath no understanding it remaineth  in me to do according as it is written & now behold  I declare no more unto you at this time amen [p. 40]
