Revelation given June, 1833.
 
1 Verily thus saith the Lord unto you, whom I love, and  whom I love I also chasten, that their sins may be forgiven,  for with the chastisement I prepare a way for their deliver ance, in all things out of temptation: and I have loved you:  Wherefore ye must needs be chastened, and stand rebuked be fore my face, for ye have sinned against me a very grevious  sin, in that ye have not considered the great commandment  in all things, that I have given unto you, concerning the buil ding of mine , for the preparation wherewith I design  to prepare mine apostles to prune my vineyard for the last  time, that I may bring to pass my strange act, that I may  pour out my Spirit upon all flesh. But behold, verily I say  unto you, there are many who have been ordained among you,  whom I have called, but few of them are chosen: they who  are not chosen have sinned a very grievious sin, in that they  are walking in darkness at noon-day; and for this cause, I  gave unto you a commandment, that you should call your sol emn assembly; that your fastings and your mourning might  come up into the ears of the Lord of Sabaoth, which is, by in terpretation, the Creator of the first day; the beginning and  the end.
2 Yea, verily I say unto you, I gave unto you a command ment, that you should build an , in the which house I  design to endow those whom I have chosen with power from  on high: for this is the promise of the Father unto you: there fore I commanded you to tarry, even as mine apostles at Je rusalem: nevertheless my servants sinned a very grevious sin;  and contentions arose in the school of the prophets, which was  very grievious unto me, saith your Lord: therefore I sent them  forth to be chastened.
3 Verily I say unto you, it is my will that you should build  an : if you keep my commandments, you shall have  power to build it; if you keep not my commandments the love  of the Father, shall not continue with you: therefore you shall  walk in darkness. Now here is wisdom and the mind of the  Lord: let the house be built, not after the manner of the world,  for I give not unto you, that ye shall live after the manner of  the world: therefore let it be built after the manner which I  shall show unto three of you, whom ye shall appoint and or dain unto this power. And the size thereof shall be fifty and  five feet in width, and let it be sixty-five feet in length, in the  inner court thereof; and let the lower part of the inner court [p. 233]
