your loins girt about with truth; having on the breastplate of  righteousness; and your feet shod with the preparation of the  gospel of peace which I have sent mine angels to commit un to you, taking the shield of faith wherewith ye shall be able  to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked; and take the hel met of salvation, and the sword of my Spirit, which I will  pour out upon you, and my word which I reveal unto you,  and be agreed as touching all things whatsoever ye ask of me,  and be faithful until I come, and ye shall be caught up that  where I am ye shall be also. Amen.

Revelation given to , September, 1830.
 
1 Behold I say unto thee, , that it shall be given unto  thee, that thou shalt be heard by the church, in all things  whatsoever thou shalt teach them by the Comforter, concern ing the revelations and commandments which I have given.
2 But behold, verily, verily I say unto thee, no one shall be  appointed to receive commandments and revelations in this  church, excepting my servant Joseph Smith, jr. for he receiv eth them even as Moses; and thou shalt be obedient unto the  things which I shall give unto him, even as Aaron, to declare  faithfully the commandments and the revelations, with power  and authority unto the church. And if thou art led at any time  by the Comforter to speak or teach, or at all times by the way  of commandment unto the church, thou mayest do it. But  thou shalt not write by way of commandment, but by wisdom:  And thou shalt not command him who is at thy head, and at  the head of the church; for I have given him the keys of the  mysteries and the revelations which are sealed, until I shall  appoint unto them another in his stead.
3 And now, behold I say unto you, that you shall go unto the  Lamanites and preach my gospel unto them; and inasmuch  as they receive thy teachings, thou shalt cause my church to  be established among them, and thou shalt have revelations  but write them not by way of commandment. And now be hold I say unto you, that it is not revealed, and no man know eth where the city shall be built, but it shall be given hereaf ter. Behold I say unto you, that it shall be on the borders by  the Lamanites.
4 Thou shalt not leave this place until after the conference  and my servant Joseph shall be appointed to preside over the  conference by the voice of it, and what he saith to thee thou  shalt tell. And again, thou shalt take thy brother [p. 181]
