1 Hearken, O ye people of my church, saith the voice of him  who dwells on high, and whose eyes are upon all men; yea, ve rily I say, hearken ye people from afar, and ye that are upon  the islands of the sea, listen together; for verily the voice of  the Lord is unto all men, and there is none to escape, and  there is no eye that shall not see, neither ear that shall not  hear, neither heart that shall not be penetrated: and the rebel lious shall be pierced with much sorrow, for their iniquities  shall be spoken upon the house-tops, and their secret acts shall  be revealed; and the voice of warning shall be unto all people,  by the mouths of my disciples, whom I have chosen in these  last days, and they shall go forth and none shall stay them, for  I the Lord have commanded them.
2 Behold, this is mine authority, and the authority of my  servants, and my preface unto the book of my commandments,  which I have given them to publish unto you O inhabitants of  the earth: wherefore fear and tremble, O ye people for what I  the Lord have decreed, in them, shall be fulfilled. And verily,  I say unto you, that they who go forth, bearing these tidings  unto the inhabitants of the earth, to them is power given to  seal both on earth and in heaven, the unbelieving and rebel lious; yea, verily, to seal them up unto the day when the wrath  of God shall be poured out upon the wicked without measure; unto the day when the Lord shall come to recompense unto  every man according to his work, and measure to every man  according to the measure which he has measured to his fellow  man.
3 Wherefore the voice of the Lord is unto the ends of the  earth, that all that will hear may hear: prepare ye, prepare ye [p. [75]]
