words, which shall be established by the testimony which shall  be given, blessed are they; and then shall ye have joy in the  fruit of your labors.
15 Verily, verily I say unto you, as I said unto my disciples,  where two or three are gathered together in my name, as  touching one thing, behold there will I be in the midst of them:  even so am I in the midst of you. Fear not to do good my  sons, for whatsoever ye sow, that shall ye also reap: therefore,  if ye sow good, ye shall also reap good for your reward:
16 Therefore fear not little flock, do good, let earth and hell  combine against you, for if ye are built upon my Rock, they  cannot prevail. Behold I do not condemn you, go your ways  and sin no more: perform with soberness the work which I  have commanded you; look unto me in every thought, doubt  not, fear not: behold the wounds which pierced my side, and  also the prints of the nails in my hands and feet: be faithful;  keep my commandments, and ye shall inherit the kingdom of  heaven: Amen.

Nevertheless,  thou art not excusable in thy transgressions; nevertheless go  thy way and sin no more.
2 Magnify thine office; and after thou hast sowed thy fields  and secured them, go speedily unto the church which is in  , and , and they shall support  thee; and I will bless them both spiritually and temporally;  but if they receive thee not, I will send upon them a cursing  instead of a blessing.
3 And thou shalt continue in calling upon God in my name,  and writing the things which shall be given thee by the Com forter, and expounding all scriptures unto the church, and it  shall be given thee in the very moment, what thou shalt speak  and write; and they shall hear it, or I will send unto them a  cursing instead of a blessing.
4 For thou shalt devote all thy service in Zion. And in this  thou shalt have strength. Be patient in afflictions, for thou  shalt have many: but endure them, for lo, I am with you, even [p. 111]
