1. Behold I say unto you, my servants and , open  ye your ears and hearken to the voice of the Lord your God  whose word is quick and powerful, sharper than a two edg ed sword, to the dividing asunder of the joints and marro  soul and spirit; and is a discerner of the thoughts and  intents of the heart. For verily, verily I say unto you,  that ye are called to lift up your voices as with the sound  of a trump, to declare my gospel unto a crooked and perverse  generation: for behold the field is white already to harvest; and  it is the eleventh hour, and for the last time that I shall call  laborers into my vineyard. And my vineyard has become cor rupted every whit; and there is none which doeth good save  it be a few; and they err in many instances, because of  , all having corrupt minds.
2. And verily, verily I say unto you, that this have I estab lished and called forth out of the wilderness: and even so will  I mine elect from the four winds quarters of the earth,  even as many as will believe in me, and hearken unto my  voice; yea, verily, verily I say unto you, that the field is white  already to harvest; wherefore thrust in your sickles, and rea[p]  with all your might, mind and strength. Open your mou[ths]  and they shall be filled. And you shall become even as  Nephi of old, who Journied from Jerusalem in the wilder ness: yea, open your mouths and spare not, and you shall  be laden with sheaves upon your backs, for lo, I am with  you: yea, open your mouths and they shall be filled  saying, Repent, repent and prepare ye the way of the Lord,  and make his paths straight: for the Kingdom of heaven  is at hand: yea, repent and be every one of you,  for the a remission of your sins; yea, be baptized even by  water, and then cometh the baptism of fire and the  Holy Ghost.
