But behold and lo,  we saw the glory and the inhabitants of the  telestial world, that they were as innumerable  as the stars in the firmament of heaven, or as  the sand upon the sea shore, and heard the  voice of the Lord saying: These all shall bow  the knee, and every tongue shall confess to  him who sits upon the throne forever and ev er: for they shall be judged according to their  works; and every man shall receive according  to his own works, and his own dominion, in  the mansions which are prepared, and they  shall be servants of the Most High, but where  God and Christ dwell they cannot come, worlds  without end. This is the end of the vision  which we saw, which we were commanded to  write while we were yet in the Spirit.
