commence from this time forth to proclaim my gospel, as  with the voice of a trump. And your labor shall be at your  brother , and in that region round about:  yea, wherever you can be heard, until I command you to go  from hence. And your whole labor shall be in Zion, with all  your soul, from henceforth; yea, you shall ever open your  mouth in my cause not fearing what man can do, for I am  with you. Amen.

Revelation to , given September, 1830.
 
1 , my son, blessed are you because of your faith in  my work. Behold you have had many afflictions because of  your family: nevertheless I will bless you, and your family:  yea, your little ones, and the day cometh that they will believe  and know the truth and be one with you in my church.
2 Lift up your heart and rejoice for the hour of your mission  is come; and your tongue shall be loosed; and you shall declare  glad tidings of great joy unto this generation. You shall de clare the things which have been revealed to my servant Jo seph Smith, jr. You shall begin to preach from this time forth;  yea, to reap in the field which is white already to be burned:  therefore thrust in your sickle with all your soul; and your  sins are forgiven you; and you shall be laden with sheaves up on your back, for the laborer is worthy of his hire. Wherefore  your family shall live.
3 Behold, verily I say unto you, go from them only for a lit tle time, and declare my word, and I will prepare a place for  them; yea, I will open the hearts of the people and they will  receive you. And I will establish a church by your hand;  and you shall strengthen them and prepare them against the  time when they shall be gathered. Be patient in afflictions,  revile not against those that revile. Govern your house in  meekness, and be steadfast.
4 Behold I say unto you, that you shall be a physician unto  the church, but not unto the world, for they will not receive  you. Go your way whithersoever I will, and it shall be giv en you by the Comforter what you shall do, and whither you  shall go. Pray always, lest you enter into temptation, and  lose your reward. Be faithful unto the end and, lo, I am with  you. These words are not of man nor of men, but of me,  even Jesus Christ, your Redeemer, by the will of the Father.  Amen. [p. 183]
