63 And if the Lord receive it not, behold he  standeth no longer in the office which I have ap pointed him.
64 And again: verily I say unto you, let those  who desire in their hearts, in meekness, to warn  sinners to repentance, let them be ordained unto  this power;
65 For this is a day of warning, and not a day of  many words.
66 For I the Lord am not to be mocked in the last  days.
67 Behold I am from above, and my power lieth  beneath.
68 I am over all, and in all, and through all, and  searcheth all things:
69 And the days cometh that all things shall be  subject unto me.
70 Behold I am Alpha and Omega, even Jesus  Christ.
71 Wherefore let all men beware, how they take  my name in their lips:
72 For behold, verily I say, that many there be  who are under this condemnation;
73 Who useth the name of the Lord, and useth it  in vain, having not authority.
74 Wherefore let the church repent of their sins,  and I the Lord will own them, otherwise they shall  be cut off.
75 Remember, that that which cometh from above  is sacred, and must be spoken with care, and by  constraint of the Spirit, and in this there is no con demnation; and ye receive the Spirit through prayer:
76 Wherefore without this, there remaineth con demnation:
77 Let my servants Joseph and , seek them [p. 156]
63 And if the Lord receive it not, behold he standeth no longer in the office which I have appointed him.
64 And again: verily I say unto you, let those who desire in their hearts, in meekness, to warn sinners to repentance, let them be ordained unto this power;
65 For this is a day of warning, and not a day of many words.
66 For I the Lord am not to be mocked in the last days.
67 Behold I am from above, and my power lieth beneath.
68 I am over all, and in all, and through all, and searcheth all things:
69 And the days cometh that all things shall be subject unto me.
70 Behold I am Alpha and Omega, even Jesus Christ.
71 Wherefore let all men beware, how they take my name in their lips:
72 For behold, verily I say, that many there be who are under this condemnation;
73 Who useth the name of the Lord, and useth it in vain, having not authority.
74 Wherefore let the church repent of their sins, and I the Lord will own them, otherwise they shall be cut off.
