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 loos ed: 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 la borer is worthy of his hire.
8 Wherefore your family shall live.
9 Behold, verily I say unto you, go from them on ly 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, re vile not against those that revile. [p. 71]

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.
