and your God have spoken it. These words are  not of men nor of man but of me wherefore you  shall testify they are of me and not of man  for it is my voice which speaketh them unto you  for they are given by my spirit unto you and  by by my power you can read them one to  another and save it were by my power you could  not have them wherefore you can testify that you  have heard my voice and know my words.
6 And now behold I give unto you and also unto that you shall  search out the twelve who shall have the desires of  of which I have spoken and by their desires and  their works you shall know them and when you  have found them you shall show these things unto  them. And you shall fall down and worship  the Father in my name and you must preach  unto the world saying you must repent and be bap tized and not only men but women and children  who have arriven to the years of accountability.
7 And now after that you have received this  you must keep my commandments in all things  and by your hands I will work a marvelous work  among the children of men unto the convincing of  their many of their sins that they may come unto re pentance and that they may come unto the kingdom  of my Father wherefore the blessings which I give unto  you are above all things. And after that you  have received this if you keep not my commandm ents you cannot be saved in the kingdom of my  Father. Behold I Jesus Christ your Lord and  your God and your Redeemer by the power of my  spirit have spoken it Amen [4 lines blank] [p. 52]
