the name of Jesus Christ, according to the holy command ment, for the remission of sins; and whoso doeth this, shall re ceive the gift of the Holy Ghost, by the laying on of the  hands of the elders of this church.
3 And again, I say unto you, that whoso forbiddeth to mar ry, is not ordained of God, for marriage is ordained of God un to man: wherefore it is lawful that he should have one wife,  and they twain shall be one flesh, and all this that the earth  might answer the end of its creation; and that it might be fil led with the measure of man, according to his creation before  the world was made. And whoso forbiddeth to abstain from  meats, that man should not eat the same, is not ordained of  God; for behold the beasts of the field, and the fowls of the  air, and that which cometh of the earth, is ordained for the  use of man, for food, and for raiment, and that he might have  in abundance, but it is not given that one man should possess  that which is above another: wherefore the world lieth in sin;  and wo be unto man that sheddeth blood or that wasteth flesh  and hath no need.
4 And again, verily I say unto you, that the Son of man com eth not in the form of a woman, neither of a man travelling on  the earth: wherefore be not deceived, but continue in steadfast ness, looking forth for the heavens to be shaken; and the earth  to tremble, and to reel to and fro as a drunken man; and for  the valleys to be exalted; and for the mountains to be made  low; and for the rough places to become smooth: and all this  when the angel shall sound his trumpet.
5 But before the great day of the Lord shall come, Jacob shall  flourish in the wilderness; and the Lamanites shall blossom as  the rose: Zion shall flourish upon the hills, and rejoice upon  the mountains, and shall be assembled together unto the place  which I have appointed. Behold I say unto you, go forth as   I have commanded you; repent of all your sins; ask and ye  shall receive; knock and it shall be opened unto you: behold I  will go before you, and be your rereward; and I will be in your  midst, and you shall not be confounded: behold I am Jesus  Christ, and I come quickly; even so. Amen.

1 Behold, thus saith the Lord unto the elders whom he hath  called and chosen, in these last days, by the voice of his Spirit,  saying, I the Lord will make known unto you what I will that  ye shall do from this time until the next conference, which [p. 192]

3 And again, I say unto you, that whoso forbiddeth to marry, is not ordained of God, for marriage is ordained of God unto man: wherefore it is lawful that he should have one wife, and they twain shall be one flesh, and all this that the earth might answer the end of its creation; and that it might be filled with the measure of man, according to his creation before the world was made. And whoso forbiddeth to abstain from meats, that man should not eat the same, is not ordained of God; for behold the beasts of the field, and the fowls of the air, and that which cometh of the earth, is ordained for the use of man, for food, and for raiment, and that he might have in abundance, but it is not given that one man should possess that which is above another: wherefore the world lieth in sin; and wo be unto man that sheddeth blood or that wasteth flesh and hath no need.
