8 Hearken ye to these words; behold I am Jesus Christ  the Savior of the world. Treasure these things up in your  hearts, and let the solemnities of eternity rest upon your  minds. Be sober. Keep all my commandments; even so:  Amen.

Revelation given March 7, 1831.
 
1 Hearken O ye people of my church to whom the kingdom  has been given: hearken ye and give ear to him who laid the  foundation of the earth; who made the heavens and all the  host thereof, and by whom all things were made which live  and move and have a being. And again I say, hearken unto  my voice, lest death shall overtake you: in an hour when ye  think not the summer shall be past, and the harvest ended,  and your souls not saved. Listen to him who is the Advo cate with the Father, who is pleading your cause before him;  saying, Father behold the sufferings and death of him who did  no sin, in whom thou wast well pleased: behold the blood of  thy Son which was shed, the blood of him whom thou gavest  that thyself might be glorified: wherefore, Father spare these  my brethren that believe on my name, that they may come un to me and have everlasting life.
2 Hearken O ye people of my church, and ye elders listen to gether, and hear my voice while it is called to-day and harden  not your hearts; for verily I say unto you that I am Alpha  and Omega, the beginning and the end, the light and the life  of the world; a light that shineth in darkness and the darkness  comprehendeth it not: I came unto my own and my own re ceived me not; but unto as many as received me gave I power  to do many miracles, and to become the sons of God, and even  unto them that believed on my name, gave I power to obtain  eternal life. And even so I have sent mine everlasting cove nant into the world; to be a light to the world, and to be a stan dard for my people and for the Gentiles to seek to it; and to  be a messenger before my face to prepare the way before me.  Wherefore come ye unto it, and with him that cometh I will  reason as with men in days of old, and I will show unto you  my strong reasoning; wherefore hearken ye together and let  me show it unto you, even my wisdom, the wisdom of him  whom ye say is the God of Enoch, and his brethren, who  were separated from the earth, and were received unto my self—a city reserved until a day of righteousness shall come— a day which was sought for by all holy men, and they found [p. 128]

1 Hearken O ye people of my church to whom the kingdom has been given: hearken ye and give ear to him who laid the foundation of the earth; who made the heavens and all the host thereof, and by whom all things were made which live and move and have a being. And again I say, hearken unto my voice, lest death shall overtake you: in an hour when ye think not the summer shall be past, and the harvest ended, and your souls not saved. Listen to him who is the Advocate with the Father, who is pleading your cause before him; saying, Father behold the sufferings and death of him who did no sin, in whom thou wast well pleased: behold the blood of thy Son which was shed, the blood of him whom thou gavest that thyself might be glorified: wherefore, Father spare these my brethren that believe on my name, that they may come unto me and have everlasting life.
2 Hearken O ye people of my church, and ye elders listen together, and hear my voice while it is called to-day and harden not your hearts; for verily I say unto you that I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the light and the life of the world; a light that shineth in darkness and the darkness comprehendeth it not: I came unto my own and my own received me not; but unto as many as received me gave I power to do many miracles, and to become the sons of God, and even unto them that believed on my name, gave I power to obtain eternal life. And even so I have sent mine everlasting covenant into the world; to be a light to the world, and to be a standard for my people and for the Gentiles to seek to it; and to be a messenger before my face to prepare the way before me. Wherefore come ye unto it, and with him that cometh I will reason as with men in days of old, and I will show unto you my strong reasoning; wherefore hearken ye together and let me show it unto you, even my wisdom, the wisdom of him whom ye say is the God of Enoch, and his brethren, who were separated from the earth, and were received unto myself—a city reserved until a day of righteousness shall come—a day which was sought for by all holy men, and they found [p. 128]
