their desires and their works, you shall know them: and when  you have found them you shall show these things unto them.  And you shall fall down and worship the Father in my name:  and you must preach unto the world, saying, you must repent  and be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ: for all men must  repent and be baptized; and not only men, but women and  children, who have arriven to the years of accountability.
7 And now, after that you have received this, you must  keep my commandments in all things: and by your hands I  will work a marvelous work among the children of men, unto  the convincing of many of their sins, that they may come unto  repentance; and that they may come unto the kingdom of my  Father: wherefore the blessings which I give unto you, are  above all things. And after that you have received this, if  you keep not my commandments, you cannot be saved in the  kingdom of my Father. Behold I Jesus Christ, your Lord and  your God, and your Redeemer, by the power of my Spirit,  have spoken it. Amen.

A commandment of God and not of man to , given  (, New York, March. 1830,) by him who is eternal:
 
1 I am Alpha and Omega, Christ the Lord; yea, even I am  He, the beginning and the end, the Redeemer of the world: I  having accomplished and finished the will of him whose I am,  even the Father concerning me: having done this, that I  might subdue all things unto myself: retaining all power, even  to the destroying of satan and his works at the end of the  world, and the last great day of judgment, which I shall pass  upon the inhabitants thereof, judging every man according to  his works, and the deeds which he hath done. And surely  every man must repent or suffer, for I God am endless: where fore, I revoke not the judgments which I shall pass, but woes  shall go forth, weeping, wailing and gnashing of teeth: yea, to  those who are found on my left hand; nevertheless it is not  written, that there shall be no end to this torment; but it is  written endless torment.
2 Again, it is written eternal damnation: wherefore it is more  express than other scriptures, that it might work upon the  hearts of the children of men, altogether for my name’s glory:  wherefore, I will explain unto you, this mystery, for it is meet  unto you, to know even as mine apostles. I speak unto you  that are chosen in this thing, even as one, that you may enter  into my rest. For behold, the mystery of Godliness, how [p. 174]
