to the land of Zion. Behold these things are in his own hands,  let him do according to wisdom. Verily I say, let him be or dained as an agent unto the disciples that shall tarry, and let him  be ordained unto this power; and now speedily visit the church es, expounding these things unto them, with my servant . Behold this is my will, obtaining moneys even as  I have directed.
13 He that is faithful and endureth shall overcome the world.  He that sendeth up treasures unto the land of Zion, shall re ceive an inheritance in this world, and his works shall follow  him; and also, a reward in the world to come; yea, and bles sed are the dead that die in the Lord from henceforth, when  the Lord shall come and old things shall pass away, and all  things become new, they shall rise from the dead and shall not  die after, and shall receive an inheritance before the Lord, in  the holy city, and he that liveth when the Lord shall come,  and have kept the faith, blessed is he; nevertheless it is ap pointed to him to die at the age of man: wherefore children  shall grow up until they become old, old men shall die; but  they shall not sleep in the dust, but they shall be changed in  the twinkling of an eye: wherefore, for this cause preached  the apostles unto the world, the resurrection of the dead: these  things are the things that ye must look for, and speaking after  the manner of the Lord, they are now nigh at hand; and in a  time to come, even in the day of the coming of the Son of  man, and until that hour, there will be foolish virgins among  the wise, and at that hour cometh an entire separation of the  righteous and the wicked; and in that day will I send mine an gels, to pluck out the wicked, and cast them into unquencha ble fire.
14 And now behold, verily I say unto you, I the Lord am  not pleased with my servant , he exalted him self in his heart, and received not counsel, but grieved the  Spirit: wherefore his writing is not acceptable unto the Lord,  and he shall make another; and if the Lord receive it not, be hold he standeth no longer in the office which I have appointed  him.
15 And again, verily I say unto you, those who desire in  their hearts, in meekness, to warn sinners to repentance, let  them be ordained unto this power: for this is a day of warn ing, and not a day of many words. For I the Lord am not to  be mocked in the last days. Behold I am from above, and  my power lieth beneath. I am over all, and in all, and  through all, and searcheth all things: and the day cometh  that all things shall be subject unto me. Behold I am Alpha  and Omega, even Jesus Christ. Wherefore let all men be [p. 144]
