25 And thou shalt preach my gospel, and call on  the holy prophets to prove his words, as they shall  be given him.

27 And satan shall tremble; and Zion shall re joice upon the hills, and flourish; and Israel shall  be saved in mine own due time.
28 And by the keys which I have given, shall they  be led and no more be confounded at all.
29 Lift your hearts and be glad: your redemp tion draweth nigh.
30 Fear not little flock, the kingdom is yours un til I come.
31 Behold I come quickly; even so: Amen.
