be loosed for a little season, that he may gather together his  armies: and Michael the seventh angel, even the archangel,  shall gather together his armies, even the hosts of heaven.—  And the devil shall gather together his armies; even the hosts  of hell, and shall come up to battle against Michael and his  armies: and then cometh the battle of the great God! and  the devil and his armies shall be cast away into their own  place, that they shall not have power over the saints any more  at all; for Michael shall fight their battles, and shall overcome  him who seeketh the throne of him who sitteth upon the  throne, even the Lamb. This is the glory of God, and the  sanctified; and they shall not any more see death.
36 Therefore, verily I say unto you, my friends, call your  solemn assembly, as I have commanded you; and as all have  not faith, seek ye diligently and teach one another words of  wisdom; yea, seek ye out of the best books words of wisdom:  seek learning even by study, and also by faith. Organize  yourselves; prepare every needful thing, and establish a house,  even a house of prayer, a house of fasting, a house of faith, a  house of learning, a house of glory, a house of order, a house  of God; that your incomings may be in the name of the Lord;  that all your outgoing may be in the name of the Lord; that all  your salutations may be in the name of the Lord, with uplift ed hands unto the Most High.
37 Therefore, cease from all your light speeches; from all  laughter; from all your lustful desires: from all your pride  and lightmindedness, and from all your wicked doings. Ap point among yourselves a teacher, and let not all be spokes men at once; but let one speak at a time, and let all listen  unto his sayings, that when all have spoken, that all may be  edified of all, and that every man may have an equal privilege.
38 See that ye love one another; cease to be covetous, learn  to impart one to another as the gospel requires; cease to be idle,  cease to be unclean; cease to find fault one with another;  cease to sleep longer than is needful; retire to thy bed early,  that ye may not be weary; arise early, that your bodies and  your minds may be invigorated: and above all things, clothe  yourselves with the bonds of charity, as with a mantle, which  is the bond of perfectness and peace: pray always, that you  may not faint until I come: behold, and lo, I will come quick ly, and receive you unto myself: Amen.
39 And again, the order of the house prepared for the pres idency of the school of the prophets, established for their in struction in all things that are expedient for them, even for  all the officers of the church, or in other words, those who  are called to the ministry in the church, beginning at the high [p. 107]
