Revelation to , given November,  1830.
 
1 My son , hearken and hear and be hold what I the Lord God shall say unto you,  even Jesus Christ your Redeemer, the light  and the life of the world: a light which shin eth in darkness and the darkness comprehend eth it not: who so loved the world that he gave  his own life, that as many as would believe  might become the sons of God: wherefore you  are my son, and blessed are you because you  have believed, and more blessed are you be cause you are called of me to preach my gos pel; to lift up your voice as with the sound of  a trump, both long and loud, and cry repent ance unto a crooked and perverse generation;  preparing the way of the Lord for his second  coming; for behold, verily, verily I say unto  you, the time is soon at hand, that I shall come  in a cloud with power and great glory, and it  shall be a great day at the time of my coming,  for all nations shall tremble.
2 But before that great day shall come, the  sun shall be darkened, and the moon be turn ed into blood, and the stars shall refuse their  shining, and some shall fall, and great destruc tions await the wicked: wherefore lift up your  voice and spare not, for the Lord God hath  spoken. Therefore prophecy and it shall be  given by the power of the Holy Ghost; and if  you are faithful behold I am with you until I  come: and verily, verily I say unto you, I come [p. 280]

1 My son , hearken and hear and behold what I the Lord God shall say unto you, even Jesus Christ your Redeemer, the light and the life of the world: a light which shineth in darkness and the darkness comprehendeth it not: who so loved the world that he gave his own life, that as many as would believe might become the sons of God: wherefore you are my son, and blessed are you because you have believed, and more blessed are you because you are called of me to preach my gospel; to lift up your voice as with the sound of a trump, both long and loud, and cry repentance unto a crooked and perverse generation; preparing the way of the Lord for his second coming; for behold, verily, verily I say unto you, the time is soon at hand, that I shall come in a cloud with power and great glory, and it shall be a great day at the time of my coming, for all nations shall tremble.
2 But before that great day shall come, the sun shall be darkened, and the moon be turned into blood, and the stars shall refuse their shining, and some shall fall, and great destructions await the wicked: wherefore lift up your voice and spare not, for the Lord God hath spoken. Therefore prophecy and it shall be given by the power of the Holy Ghost; and if you are faithful behold I am with you until I come: and verily, verily I say unto you, I come [p. 280]
