self might be glorified: wherefore Father spare these  my brethren that believe on my name, that they  may come unto me and have everlasting life.
7 Hearken O ye people of my church, and ye el ders listen together, and hear my voice while it is  called today, and harden not your hearts:
8 For verily I say unto you that I am Alpha and  Omega, the beginning and the end, the light and  the life of the world, a light that shineth in darkness  and the darkness comprehendeth it not:
9 I came unto my own and my own received me  not:
10 But unto as many as received me, gave I power  to do many miracles, and to become the sons of God,  and even unto them that believed on my name gave  I power to obtain eternal life.
11 And even so I have sent mine everlasting cov enant into the world, to be a light to the world, and  to be a standard for my people, and for the Gentiles  to seek to it;
12 And to be a messenger before my face to pre pare the way before me.
13 Wherefore come ye unto it, and with him that  cometh I will reason as with men in days of old,  and I will show unto you my strong reasoning;
14 Wherefore hearken ye together and let me  show it unto you, even my wisdom, the wisdom of  him whom ye say is the God of Enoch, and his  brethren, who were separated from the earth, and  were reserved unto myself, a city reserved until a  day of righteousness shall come, a day which was  sought for by all holy men, and they found it not  because of wickedness and abominations, and con fessed that they were strangers and pilgrims on the  earth; [p. 104]

12 And to be a messenger before my face to prepare the way before me.
