Section 90 • Revelation, 1 December 1831 [D&C 71]

SECTION XC.
 
Revelation given December, 1831.
 
1 Behold, thus saith the Lord unto my servants, Joseph  Smith, jr. aad [and] , that the time has verily come,  that it is necessary and expedient in me that you should open  your mouths in proclaiming my gospel, the things of the king dom, expounding the mysteries thereof out of the scriptures,  according to that portion of spirit and power, which shall be  given unto you, even as I will.
2 Verily I say unto you, proclaim unto the world in the re gions round about, and in the church also, for the space of a  season, even until it shall be made known unto you. Verily  this is a mission for a season, which I give unto you, where fore, labor ye in my vineyard. Call upon the inhabitants of  the earth, and bear record, and prepare the way for the com mandments and revelations which are to come. Now, behold  this is wisdom; whoso readeth let him understand and receive  also; for unto him that receiveth it shall be given more abun dantly, even power: wherefore, confound your enemies; call  upon them to meet you, both in public and in private; and  inasmuch as ye are faithful their shame shall be made mani fest. Wherefore, let them bring forth their strong reasons  against the Lord. Verily thus saith the Lord unto you, there  is no weapon that is formed against you shall prosper; and if  any man lift his voice against you, he shall be confounded in  mine own due time: wherefore, keep these commandments:  they are true and faithful, even so. Amen.
 

Section 91 • Vision, 16 February 1832 [D&C 76]

SECTION XCI.
 
A Vision.
 
1 Hear, O ye heavens, and give ear, O earth, and rejoice ye  inhabitants thereof, for the Lord is God, and beside him there  is no Savior; great is his wisdom; marvellous are his ways;  and the extent of his doings, none can find out; his purposes  fail not, neither are there any who can stay his hand: from  eternity to eternity, he is the same and his years never fail.
2 For thus saith the Lord, I the Lord am merciful and gra cious unto those who fear me, and delight to honor those who  serve me in righteousness, and in truth unto the end; great  shall be their reward, and eternal shall be their glory; and to  them will I reveal all mysteries; yea, all the hidden mysteries [p. 225]

Revelation given December, 1831.
 
1 Behold, thus saith the Lord unto my servants, Joseph Smith, jr. aad [and] , that the time has verily come, that it is necessary and expedient in me that you should open your mouths in proclaiming my gospel, the things of the kingdom, expounding the mysteries thereof out of the scriptures, according to that portion of spirit and power, which shall be given unto you, even as I will.
2 Verily I say unto you, proclaim unto the world in the regions round about, and in the church also, for the space of a season, even until it shall be made known unto you. Verily this is a mission for a season, which I give unto you, wherefore, labor ye in my vineyard. Call upon the inhabitants of the earth, and bear record, and prepare the way for the commandments and revelations which are to come. Now, behold this is wisdom; whoso readeth let him understand and receive also; for unto him that receiveth it shall be given more abundantly, even power: wherefore, confound your enemies; call upon them to meet you, both in public and in private; and inasmuch as ye are faithful their shame shall be made manifest. Wherefore, let them bring forth their strong reasons against the Lord. Verily thus saith the Lord unto you, there is no weapon that is formed against you shall prosper; and if any man lift his voice against you, he shall be confounded in mine own due time: wherefore, keep these commandments: they are true and faithful, even so. Amen.
