they will come, they may, and partake of the waters of life  freely.
16 Behold this is my doctrine: whosoever repenteth and  cometh unto me, the same is my church. whosoever declareth  more or less than this, the same is not of me, but is against  me: therefore, he is not of my church.
17 And now, behold whosoever is of my church, and endu reth of my church to the end, him will I establish upon  my Rock, and the gates of hell shall not prevail against them.
18 And now, remember the words of him who is the life and  the light of the world, your Redeemer, your Lord and your  God. Amen.

SECTION XXXVII.
 
Revelation given to , May, 1829.
 
1 A great and marvelous work is about to come forth among  the children of men: behold I am God and give heed to my  word, which is quick and powerful, sharper than a two-edged  sword, to the dividing asunder of both joints and marrow:  therefore, give heed unto my word.
2 Behold the field is white already to harvest, therefore, who so desireth to reap, let him thrust in his sickle with his might,  and reap while the day lasts, that he may treasure up for his  soul everlasting salvation in the kingdom of God; yea, whoso ever will thrust in his sickle and reap, the same is called of  God: therefore, if you will ask of me, you shall receive; if you  will knock, it shall be opened unto you.
3 Now as you have asked, behold I say unto you, keep my  commandments, and seek to bring forth and establish the cause  of Zion. Seek not for riches but for wisdom, and behold the  mysteries of God shall be unfolded unto you, and then shall  you be made rich; behold he that hath eternal life is rich.
4 Verily, verily I say unto you, even as you desire of me, so  shall it be done unto you: and, if you desire you shall be the  means of doing much good in this generation. Say nothing  but repentance unto this generation. Keep my commandments,  and assist to bring forth my work according to my command ments, and you shall be blessed.
5 Behold thou hast a gift, or thou shalt have a gift if thou  wilt desire of me in faith, with an honest heart, believing in  the power of Jesus Christ, or in my power which speaketh  unto thee: for behold it is I that speaketh: behold I am the  light which shineth in darkness, and by my power I give these  words unto thee. [p. 167]
