A Revelation given May, 1831.
 
1 Hearken, O ye elders of my church, and  give ear to the voice of the living God; and  attend to the words of wisdom which shall be  given unto you, according as ye have asked  and are agreed as touching the church, and the  spirits which have gone abroad in the earth.  Behold, verily I say unto you, that there are  many spirits which are false spirits, which have  gone forth in the earth, deceiving the world:  and also satan hath sought to deceive you, that  he might overthrow you.
2 Behold I the Lord have looked upon you,  and have seen abominations in the church, that  profess my name; but blessed are they who  are faithful and endure, whether in life or in  death, for they shall inherit eternal life. But  wo unto them that are deceivers, and hypo crites, for thus saith the Lord, I will bring  them to judgment.
3 Behold verily I say unto you, there are  hypocrites among you, and have deceived  some, which has given the adversary power,  but behold such shall be reclaimed; but the hy pocrites shall be detected and shall be cut off,  either in life or in death, even as I will, and  wo unto them who are cut off from my church, [p. 190]
ye are blessed with: and ye must practice virtue and holiness before me continually; even so: Amen.
