SECTION LIV.
 
Revelation to and , given Octo ber, 1830.
 
1 And now concerning my servant , behold I  say unto him, that as I live I will that he shall declare my  gospel and learn of me, and be meek and lowly of heart; and  that which I have appointed unto him, is, that he shall go with  my servants and into the  wilderness, among the Lamanites; and , also,  shall go with them, and I myself will go with them and be in  their midst: and I am their Advocate with the Father, and no thing shall prevail. And they shall give heed to that which  is written and pretend to no other revelation, and they shall  pray always that I may unfold them to their understanding;  and they shall give heed unto these words and trifle not, and  I will bless them. Amen.
 

Section 55 • Revelation, October 1830–B [D&C 33]

SECTION LV.
 
Revelation to and , given October,  1830.
 
1 Behold I say unto you, my servants and ,  open ye your ears and hearken to the voice of the Lord your  God, whose word is quick and powerful, sharper than a two  edged sword, to the dividing asunder of the joints and marrow,  soul and spirit: and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents  of the heart. For verily, verily I say unto you, that ye are  called to lift up your voices as with the sound of a trump, to  declare my gospel unto a crooked and a perverse generation:  for behold the field is white already to harvest; and it is the  eleventh hour, and for the last time that I shall call laborers  into my vineyard. And my vineyard has become corrupted  every whit: and there is none which doeth good save it be a  few; and they err in many instances, because of priestcrafts,  all having corrupt minds.
2 And verily, verily I say unto you, that this church have I  established and called forth out of the wilderness: and even so  will I gather mine elect from the four quarters of the earth,  even as many as will believe in me, and hearken unto my  voice: yea, verily, verily I say unto you, that the field is white  already to harvest: wherefore thrust in your sickles, and reap  with all your might, mind and strength. Open your mouths  and they shall be filled; and you shall become even as Nephi [p. 184]
