A Revelation to the elders of the church assembled at , Ohio, given May, 1831.
HEARKEN, O ye elders of my church, and give ear to the voice of the living God; and attend to the words of wisdom which shall be given unto you, according as ye have asked and are agreed as touching the church, and the spirits which have gone abroad in the earth.
2 Behold verily I say unto you, that there are many spirits which are false spirits, which have gone forth in the earth, deceiving the world:
3 And also satan hath sought to deceive you, that he might overthrow you.
4 Behold I the Lord have looked upon you, and have seen abominations in the church, which profess my name;
5 But blessed are they who are faithful and endure, whether in life or in death, for they shall inherit eternal life.

7 Behold verily I say unto you, there are hypocrites among you, and have deceived some, which has given the adversary power, but behold such shall be reclaimed; [p. 119]
