Revelation given August, 1831.
 
1 Behold and hearken, O ye elders of my church, saith the  Lord your God; even Jesus Christ, your advocate who know eth the weakness of man and how to succor them who are  tempted: and verily mine eyes are upon those who have not  as yet gone up unto the land of Zion: wherefore your mission  is not yet full: nevertheless ye are blessed, for the testimony  which ye have borne is recorded in heaven for the angels to  look upon, and they rejoice over you; and your sins are for given you.
2 And now continue your journey. Assemble yourselves up on the land of Zion, and hold a meeting and rejoice together,  and offer a sacrament unto the Most High; and then you may  return to bear record; yea, even all together, or two by two,  as seemeth you good; it mattereth not unto me, only be faith ful, and declare glad tidings unto the inhabitants of the earth,  or among the congregations of the wicked. Behold I the  Lord have brought you together that the promise might be  fulfilled, that the faithful among you should be preserved and  rejoice together in the land of . I the Lord promised  the faithful and cannot lie.
3 I the Lord am willing, if any among you desireth to ride  upon horses, or upon mules, or in chariots, he shall receive  this blessing, if he receive it from the hand of the Lord, with  a thankful heart in all things. These things remain with you  to do according to judgment and the directions of the Spirit.—  Behold the kingdom is yours. And behold, and lo I am with  the faithful always; even so. Amen.
