Revelation given January, 1832.
 
1 Verily, verily I say unto you, I who speak even by the  voice of my Spirit; even Alpha and Omega, your Lord and  your God: hearken, O ye who have given your names to go  forth to proclaim my gospel, and to prune my vineyard. Be hold I say unto you, that it is my will that you should go forth  and not tarry, neither be idle, but labor with your mights  lifting up your voices as with the sound of a trump proclaim ing the truth according to the revelations and commandments  which I have given you, and thus if ye are faithful ye shall be  laden with many sheaves, and crowned with honor, and glory,  and immortality, and eternal life.
2 Therefore verily I say unto my servant I revoke the commission which I gave unto him, to go un to the eastern countries, and I give unto him a new commis sion and a new commandment, in the which I the Lord chas teneth him for the murmurings of his heart; and he sinned,  nevertheless I forgive him and say unto him again, go ye into  the south countries; and let my servant go  with him and proclaim the things which I have commanded  them, calling on the name of the Lord for the comforter, which  shall teach them all things that are expedient for them, praying  always that they faint not; and inasmuch as they do this, I  will be with them even unto the end. Behold this is the will  of the Lord your God concerning you; even so. Amen.
3 And again, verily thus saith the Lord, let my servant and my servant take their journey  into the eastern countries, and proclaim the things which I  have commanded them: and inasmuch as they are faithful, lo  I will be with them even unto the end. And again, verily I  say unto my servant , and unto my servant  , they shall also take their journey into the east ern countries: and behold and lo, I am with them also even  unto the end. And again I say unto my servant  and unto my servant Calves Wilson, that they also shall take  their journey unto the western countries, and proclaim my  gospel even as I have commanded them. And he who is faith ful shall overcome all things, and shall be lifted up at the last  day. And again, I say unto my servant Major N. Ashley and  my servant , let them take their journey also unto  the south country: yea, let all those take their journey as I  have commanded them, going from house to house, and from  village to village, and from city to city; and in whatsoever [p. 221]
