house ye enter, and they receive you, leave your blessings upon that house; and in whatsoever house ye enter, and they receive you not, ye shall depart speedily from that house, and shake off the dust of your feet as a testimony against them; and you shall be filled with joy and gladness and know this, that in the day of judgement you shall be judges of that house, and condemn them; and it shall be more tolerable for the heathen in the day of judgment, than for that house: therefore gird up your loins and be faithful and ye shall overcome all things and be lifted up at the last day; even so. Amen.
4 And again thus saith the Lord unto you, O ye elders of my church, who have given your names that you might know his will concerning you: behold I say unto you that it is the duty of the church to assist in supporting the families of those, and also to supp[o]rt the families of those who are called and must needs be sent unto the world to proclaim the gospel unto the world: wherefore I the Lord give unto you this commandment, that ye obtain places for your families, inasmuch as your brethren are willing to open their hearts; and let all such as can, obtain places for their families, and support of the church for them, not fail to go into the world; whether to the east, or to the west, or to the north, or to the south, let them ask and they shall receive; knock and it shall be opened unto them, and made known from on high, even by the Comforter, whither they shall go.
5 And again verily I say unto you that every man who is obliged to provide for his own family, let him provide and he shall in no wise lose his crown; and let him labor in the church. Let every man be diligent in all things. And the idler shall not have place in the church, except he repents and mends his ways. Wherefore let my servant and my servant be united in the ministry. And also my servant and my servant . Also my servant and my servant ; and also my servant and my servant ; and also my servant and my servant ; and also my servant Ruggles Eames and my servant ; and also my servant Micah B. Welton and also my servant ; even so. Amen.
