come the sons of God, even one in me as I am  in the Father, as the father is one in me, that  we may be one.
2 Behold, verily, verily I say unto my ser vant , I have looked upon thee and thy  works. I have heard thy prayers and pre pared thee for a greater work. Thou art  blessed, for thou shalt do great things. Be hold thou wast sent forth even as John, to  prepare the way before me, and before Elijah  which should come, and thou knew it not.  Thou did baptize by water unto repentance,  but they received not the Holy Ghost; but now  I give unto thee a commandment, that thou  shalt baptize by water, and they shall receive  the Holy Ghost by the laying on of the hands,  even as the apostles of old.
3 And it shall come to pass, that there shall  be a great work in the land even among the  Gentiles, for their folly and their abominations  shall be made manifest, in the eyes of all peo ple: for I am God, and mine arm is not short ened, and I will show miracles, signs and won ders, unto all those who believe on my name.  And whoso shall ask it in my name, in faith,  they shall cast out devils; they shall heal the  sick; they shall cause the blind to receive their  sight, and the deaf to hear, and the dumb to  speak, and the lame to walk: and the time  speedily cometh that great things are to be  shown forth unto the children of men: but  without faith shall not any thing be shown  forth except desolations upon Babylon, the  same which has made all nations drink of the  wine of the wrath of her fornication.

Thou art blessed, for thou shalt do great things. Behold thou wast sent forth even as John, to prepare the way before me, and before Elijah which should come, and thou knew it not. Thou did baptize by water unto repentance, but they received not the Holy Ghost; but now I give unto thee a commandment, that thou shalt baptize by water, and they shall receive the Holy Ghost by the laying on of the hands, even as the apostles of old.
3 And it shall come to pass, that there shall be a great work in the land even among the Gentiles, for their folly and their abominations shall be made manifest, in the eyes of all people: for I am God, and mine arm is not shortened, and I will show miracles, signs and wonders, unto all those who believe on my name. And whoso shall ask it in my name, in faith, they shall cast out devils; they shall heal the sick; they shall cause the blind to receive their sight, and the deaf to hear, and the dumb to speak, and the lame to walk: and the time speedily cometh that great things are to be shown forth unto the children of men: but without faith shall not any thing be shown forth except desolations upon Babylon, the same which has made all nations drink of the wine of the wrath of her fornication.
