Revelation given June, 1831
 
1 Hearken O ye people who profess my name, saith the  Lord your God, for behold mine anger is kindled against the  rebellious, and they shall know mine arm and mine indigna tion in the day of visitation and of wrath upon the nations.—  And he that will not take up his cross and follow me, and  keep my commandments, the same shall not be saved.
2 Behold I the Lord commandeth, and he that will not obey  shall be cut off in mine own due time: and after that I have  commanded and the commandment is broken, wherefore I the  Lord command and revoke, as it seemeth me good; and all  this to be answered upon the heads of the rebellious saith the  Lord: wherefore I revoke the commandment which was given  unto my servants and , and  give a new commandment unto my servant , that he  shall take up his journey speedily to the land of ;  and my servant shall also go with him: for  behold I revoke the commandment which was given unto my  servants and , in consequence  of the stiffneckedness of my people which are in ;  and their rebellions: wherefore let my servant  remain with them, and as many as will go may go, that are  contrite before me, and be led by him to the land which I have  appointed.
3 And again, verily I say unto you, that my servant must repent of his pride, and of his selfishness, and  obey the former commandment which I have given him con cerning the place upon which he lives; and if he will do this,  as there shall be no divisions made upon the land, he shall be  appointed still to go to the land of ; otherwise he shall  receive the money which he has paid, and shall leave the  place, and shall be cut off out of my church, saith the Lord  God of hosts: and though the heaven and the earth pass away,  these words shall not pass away, but shall be fulfilled.

For accor ding to that which they do, they shall receive; even in lands  for their inheritance. Behold thus saith the Lord unto my  people, you have many things to do, and to repent of: for be hold your sins have come up unto me, and are not pardoned,  because you seek to counsel in your own ways.
