4 And behold, he that is faithful shall be  made ruler over many things. And again, I  will give unto you a pattern in all things, that  ye may not be deceived, for satan is abroad in  the land, and he goeth forth deceiving the na tions: wherefore he that prayeth whose spirit  is contrite, the same is accepted of me, if he  obey mine ordinances: he that speaketh, whose  spirit is contrite, whose language is meek, and  edifieth, the same is of God, if he obey mine  ordinances. And again, he that trembleth un der my power, shall be made strong, and shall  bring forth fruits of praise, and wisdom, ac cording to the revelations, and truths which I  have given you.
5 And again, he that is overcome and bring eth not forth fruits, even according to this pat tern, is not of me: wherefore by this pattern  ye shall know the spirits in all cases, under the  whole heavens. And the days have come,  according to men’s faith it shall be done unto  them. Behold this commandment is given  unto all the elders whom I have chosen. And  again, verily I say unto you, let my servant  , and my servant , take their journey also, preaching the  word by the way, unto this same land. And  again, let my servant , and my  servant , take their journey, also  a preaching the word by the way unto the same  land.
6 And again, let my servants and take their journey  with my servants and Joseph [p. 294]

And again, he that trembleth under my power, shall be made strong, and shall bring forth fruits of praise, and wisdom, according to the revelations, and truths which I have given you.
