Chapter 29 • Revelation, September 1830–A [D&C 29]

CHAPTER XXIX.
 
1 A Revelation to the church of Christ, given in  the presence of six elders, in , New-York,  September, 1830.
LISTEN to the voice of Jesus Christ, your Re deemer, the Great I AM, whose arm of mer cy hath atoned for your sins;
2 Who will gather his people even as a hen gath ereth her chickens under her wings, even as many  as will hearken to my voice, and humble themselves  before me, and call upon me in mighty prayer.
3 Behold, verily, verily I say unto you, that at  this time your sins are forgiven you; therefore ye re ceive these things:
4 But remember to sin no more, lest perils shall  come upon you.
5 Verily I say unto you, that ye are chosen out of  the world to declare my gospel with the sound of  rejoicing, as with the voice of a trump:
6 Lift up your hearts and be glad for I am in  your midst, and am your advocate with the Father;  and it is his good will to give you the kingdom;
7 And as it is written, Whatsoever ye shall ask  in faith, being united in prayer according to my  command, ye shall receive;
8 And ye are called to bring to pass the gathering  of mine elect, for mine elect hear my voice and  harden not their hearts:
9 Wherefore the decree hath gone forth from the  Father, that they shall be gathered in unto one  place, upon the face of this land, to prepare their  hearts, and be prepared in all things, against the  day when tribulation and desolation are sent forth  upon the wicked: [p. 61]
