1 Verily, thus saith the Lord unto you my friends, ,  and Joseph, your families are well: they are in mine hands,  and I will do with them as seemeth me good; for in me there  is all power: therefore, follow me, and listen to the council  which I shall give unto you: Behold, and lo, I have much peo ple in this place, in the regions round about, and an effectual  door shall be opened in the regions round about in this eastern  land: Therefore, I the Lord have suffered you to come unto  this place; for thus it was expedient in me for the salvation of  souls: therefore, verily I say unto you, lift up your voices un to this people; speak the thoughts that I shall put into your  hearts, and ye shall not be confounded before men; for it shall  be given you in the very hour, yea, in the very moment, what  ye shall say.
2 But a commandment I give unto you, that ye shall declare  whatsoever things ye declare in my name, in solemnity of  heart, in the spirit of meekness, in all things. And I give un to you this promise, that inasmuch as ye do this, the Holy  Ghost shall be shed forth in bearing record unto all things what soever ye shall say.
3 And it is expedient in me that you, my servant ,  should be a spokesman unto this people; yea, verily, I will  ordain you unto this calling, even to be a spokesman unto my  servant Joseph; and I will give unto him power to be mighty  in testimony; and will give unto thee power to be mighty in  expounding all scriptures, that thou mayest be a spokesman  unto him, and he shall be a revelator unto thee, that thou  mayest know the certainty of all things pertaining to the things  of my kingdom on the earth. Therefore, continue your jour ney and let your hearts rejoice; for, behold, and lo, I am with  you even unto the end.
4 And now I give unto you a word concerning Zion: Zion  shall be redeemed, although she is chastened for a little season.  Thy brethren, my servants, and , are  in my hands, and inasmuch as they keep my commandments  they shall be saved. Therefore, let your hearts be comforted,  for all things shall work together for good to them that walk  uprightly, and to the sanctification of the church; for I will  raise up myself a pure people, that will serve me in right eousness; and all that call on the name of the Lord and keep  his commandments, shall be saved; even so. Amen. [p. 232]
