SECTION CIV.
 
The word of the Lord, given unto , at July 23, 1837, concern ing the twelve apostles of the Lamb.
 
1 Verily thus saith the Lord unto you my  servant , I have heard thy prayers,  and thine alms have come up as a memorial  before me, in behalf of those thy brethren who  were chosen to bear testimony of my name,  and to send it abroad among all nations, kin dreds, tongues, and people; and ordained  through the instrumentality of my servants.
2 Verily I say unto you, there have been  some few things in thine heart and with thee,  with which I the Lord was not well pleased;  nevertheless inasmuch as thou hast abased  thyself thou shalt be exalted: therefore all  thy sins are forgiven thee. Let thy heart be  of good cheer before my face, and thou shalt  bear record of my name, not only unto the  Gentiles, but also unto the Jews; and thou shalt  send forth my word unto the ends of the earth.
3 Contend thou therefore morning by morn ing, and day after day let thy warning voice  go forth; and when the night cometh, let not  the inhabitants of the earth slumber because  of thy speech.
4 Let thy habitation be known in Zion, and  remove not thy house, for I the Lord have a  great work for thee to do, in publishing my  name among the children of men: therefore  gird up thy loins for the work. Let thy feet  be shod also for thou art chosen and thy path [p. 414]
