CHAPTER LII.
 
A Revelation to , , and ,  given in , Ohio, March, 1831.
HEARKEN unto my word, my servant , and , and , for behold,  verily I say unto you, that I give unto you a com mandment, that you shall go and preach my gos pel, which ye have received, even as ye have re ceived it, unto the Shakers.
2 Behold I say unto you, that they desire to know  the truth in part, but not all, for they are not right  before me, and must needs repent:
3 Wherefore I send you, my servants and  , to preach the gospel unto them; and my  servant shall be ordained unto this work,  that he may reason with them, not according to  that which he has received of them, but according  to that which shall be taught him by you, my ser vants, and by so doing I will bless him, otherwise  he shall not prosper:
4 Thus saith the Lord, for I am God and have  sent mine only begotten Son into the world, for the  redemption of the world, and have decreed, that he  that receiveth him shall be saved, and he that re ceiveth him not, shall be damned:
5 And they have done unto the Son of man even  as they listed;
6 And he has taken his power on the right hand  of his glory, and now reigneth in the heavens, and  will reign till he descends on the earth to put all en emies under his feet:
7 Which time is nigh at hand: I the Lord God  have spoken it:
8 But the hour and the day no man knoweth, [p. 116]
