4  Again I say, hearken ye elders of my  church, whom I have appointed: ye are not  sent forth to be taught, but to teach the chil dren of men the things which I have put into  your hands by the power of my Spirit: and ye  are to be taught from on high. Sanctify your selves and ye shall be endowed with power,  that ye may give even as I have spoken.
5 Hearken ye, for behold the great day of  the Lord is nigh at hand. For the day com eth that the Lord shall utter his voice out of  heaven; the heavens shall shake and the earth  shall tremble, and the trump of God shall  sound both long and loud, and shall say to the  sleeping nations: Ye saints arise and live: Ye  sinners stay and sleep until I shall call again:  wherefore gird up your loins, least ye be found  among the wicked. Lift up your voices and  spare not. Call upon the nations to repent,  both old and young, both bond and free; say ing, Prepare yourselves for the great day of  the Lord: for if I, who am a man, do lift up  my voice and call upon you to repent, and ye  hate me, what will ye say when the day com eth when the thunders shall utter their voices  from the ends of the earth, speaking to the ears  of all that live, saying: Repent, and prepare  for the great day of the Lord! yea, and again,  when the lightnings shall streak forth from the  east unto the west, and shall utter forth their  voices unto all that live, and make the ears of  all tingle, that hear, saying these words: Re pent ye, for the great day of the Lord is come!
6 And again, the Lord shall utter his voice  out of heaven, saying: Hearken, O ye nations [p. 177]
4  Again I say, hearken ye elders of my church, whom I have appointed: ye are not sent forth to be taught, but to teach the children of men the things which I have put into your hands by the power of my Spirit: and ye are to be taught from on high. Sanctify yourselves and ye shall be endowed with power, that ye may give even as I have spoken.
