years. And then he shall be loosed for a little  season, that he may gather together his armies: and  Michael the seventh angel, even the archangel,  shall gather together his armies even the hosts of heaven.  And the devil shall gather together his armies, even  the hosts of hell, and shall come up to battle against  Michael and his armies; and then cometh the battle  of the great God! And the devil and his armies  shall be cast away into their own place, that they  shall not have power over the saints any more  at all; for Michael shall fight their battles, and  shall overcome him who seeketh the throne of him  who sitteth upon the throne, even the Lamb.  This is the glory of God and the sanctified; and they  shall not any more see death.
36 Therefore, verily I say unto you, my friends,  call your , as I have  you; and as all have not faith, seek ye diligently  and teach one another words of wisdom; yea,  seek, ye out of the best books words of wisdom;  seek learning even by study, and also by faith.  Organize yourselves; prepare every needful thing,  and establish a house, even a house of prayer, a  house of fasting, a house of faith, a house of learning  a house of glory, a house of order, a house of God;  that your incomings may be in the name of the  Lord; that your outgoing may be in the name  of the Lord; that all your salutations may be in  the name of the Lord, with uplifted hands unto  the Most High.
37 Therefore, cease from all your light speeches;  from all laughter; from all your lustful desires: from  all your pride and light-mindedness, and from all  your wicked doings. Appoint among yourselves  a teacher, and let not all be spokesmen at once; but  let one speak at a time, and let all listen unto his  sayings, that when all have spoken, that all may  be edified of all, and that every man may have an  equal privilege.
