Chapter 28 • Revelation, circa August 1830 [D&C 27]

CHAPTER XXVIII.
 
1 A Commandment to the church of Christ, given  in , Pennsylvania, September 4, 1830.
LISTEN to the voice of Jesus Christ, your  Lord, your God and your Redeemer, whose  word is quick and powerful.
2 For behold I say unto you, that it mattereth  not what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink, when  ye partake of the sacrament, if it so be that ye do  it with an eye single to my glory;
3 Remembering unto the Father my body which  was laid down for you, and my blood which was  shed for the remission of your sins:
4 Wherefore a commandment I give unto you,  that you shall not purchase wine, neither strong  drink of your enemies:
5 Wherefore you shall partake of none, except it  is made new among you, yea, in this my Father’s  kingdom which shall be built up on the earth.
6 Behold this is wisdom in me, wherefore marvel  not, for the hour cometh that I will drink of the fruit  of the vine with you, on the earth, and with all those  whom my Father hath given me out of the world:
7 Wherefore lift up your hearts and rejoice, and  gird up your loins and be faithful until I come:—  even so. Amen. [p. 60]
