Amen.
19 And we know, that all men must repent and believe on the name of Jesus Christ, and worship the Father in his name, and endure in faith on his name to the end, or they cannot be saved in the kingdom of God.
20 And we know, that justification through the grace of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, is just and true;
21 And we know, also, that sanctification through the grace of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, is just and true, to all those who love and serve God with all their mights, minds, and strength, but there is a possibility that men may fall from grace and depart from the living God.
22 Therefore, let the church take heed and pray always, lest they fall into temptation;
23 Yea, and even he that is sanctified also.

26 Neither to the revelations of God which shall come hereafter, by the gift and power of the Holy Ghost;
27 Neither by the voice of God; [p. 50]
