CHAPTER XXXIV.
 
A Revelation to , given in , New-York, September, 1830.
, my son, blessed are you because of your faith in my work.
2 Behold you have had many afflictions because of your family: nevertheless I will bless you, and your family:
3 Yea, your little ones, and the day cometh that they will believe and know the truth and be one with you in my church.
4 Lift up your heart and rejoice for the hour of your mission is come; and your tongue shall be loosed: and you shall declare glad tidings of great joy unto this generation.
5 You shall declare the things which have been revealed to my servant Joseph.
6 You shall begin to preach from this time forth; yea, to reap in the field which is white already to be burned:
7 Therefore thrust in your sickle with all your soul; and your sins are forgiven you; and you shall be laden with sheaves upon your back, for the laborer is worthy of his hire.
8 Wherefore your family shall live.
9 Behold, verily I say unto you, go from them only for a little time, and declare my word, and I will prepare a place for them; yea, I will open the hearts of the people and they will receive you.
10 And I will establish a church by your hand; and you shall strengthen them and prepare them against the time when they shall be gathered.
11 Be patient in afflictions, and in sufferings, revile not against those that revile. [p. 71]
