SECTION LXXIX.
 
Revelation given August, 1832.
 
1 Behold thus saith the Lord unto my ser vant , thou art called to go into  the eastern countries from house to house,  from village to village, and from city to city, to  proclaim mine everlasting gospel unto the in habitants thereof, in the midst of persecution  and wickedness; and whoso receiveth you re ceiveth me, and you shall have power to de clare my word in the demonstration of my  Holy Spirit; and whoso receiveth you as a  little child, receiveth my kingdom and blessed  are they, for they shall obtain mercy; and  whoso rejecteth you shall be rejected of my  Father and his house: and you shall cleanse  your feet in the secret places by the way for  a testimony against them.
2 And behold, and lo, I come quickly to  judgment, to convince all of their ungodly  deeds which they have committed against me,  as it is written of me in the volume of the  book. And now verily I say unto you, that  it is not expedient that you should go until  your children are provided for, and kindly sent  up unto the in Zion, and after a few  years, if thou desirest of me thou mayest go up  also unto the goodly land, to possess thine in heritance; otherwise thou shalt continue pro claiming my gospel until thou be taken:—  Amen. [p. 316]
