10 And upon my house shall it begin; and  from my house shall it go forth saith the Lord.  First among those among you saith the Lord;  who have professed to know my name and  have not known me, and have blasphemed  against me in the midst of my house saith the  Lord.
11 Therefore see to it that ye trouble not  yourselves concerning the affairs of my church  in this place, saith the Lord: but purify your  hearts before me, and then go ye into all the  world and preach my gospel unto every crea ture, who have not received it, and he that  believeth and is baptized shall be saved, and  he that believeth not, and is not baptised shall  be damned.
12 For unto you (the twelve) and those  (the first presidency) who are appointed with  you to be your counsellors and your leaders,  is the power of this priesthood given for the  last days and for the last time, in the which is  the dispensation of the fulness of times, which  power you hold in connection with all those  who have received a dispensation at any time  from the beginning of the creation: for verily  I say unto you the keys of the dispensation  which ye have received, have came down  from the fathers: and last of all, being sent  down from heaven unto you.
13. Verily I say unto you, behold how great  is your calling. Cleanse your hearts and your  garments, lest the blood of this generation be  required at your hands. Be faithful until I come  for I come quickly, and my reward is with me  to recompense every man according as his  work shall be. I am Alpha and Omega: Amen. [p. 417]
