1 Hearken unto my word, my servant , and ,  and , for behold, verily I say unto you, that I give un to you a commandment, that you shall go and preach my gos pel, which ye have received, even as ye have received it, unto  the shakers. Behold I say unto you, that they desire to know  the truth in part, but not all, for they are not right before me,  and must needs repent: wherefore I send you, my servants   and , to preach the gospel unto them; and my  servant shall be ordained unto this work, that he may  reason with them, not according to that which he has received  of them, but according that that which shall be taught him by  you, my servants, and by so doing I will bless him, otherwise  he shall not prosper: thus saith the Lord, for I am God and  have sent mine only begotten Son into the world, for the redemp tion of the world, and have decreed that he that receiveth him  shall be saved, and he that receiveth him not, shall be damned.
2 And they have done unto the Son of man even as they lis ted; and he has taken his power on the right hand of his glo ry, and now reigneth in the heavens, and will reign till he de scends on the earth to put all enemies under his feet: which  time is nigh at hand: I the Lord God have spoken it: but the  hour and the day no man knoweth, neither the angels in heav en, nor shall they know until he comes: wherefore I will that  all men shall repent, for all are under sin, except them which  I have reserved unto myself, holy men that ye know not of:  wherefore I say unto you, that I have sent unto you mine ev erlasting covenant, even that which was from the beginning,  and that which I have promised I have so fulfilled, and the na tions of the earth shall bow to it; and, if not of themselves,  they shall come down, for that which is now exalted of itself,  shall be laid low of power: wherefore I give unto you a com mandment, that ye go among this people and say unto them,  like unto mine apostle of old, whose name was Peter: Believe  on the name of the Lord Jesus, who was on the earth, and is  to come, the beginning and the end; repent and be baptized in [p. 191]
