We recieved at the same time the following  Revelation <in the presence of six elders>
1 Listen to the voice. of Jesus  Christ the Great I am whose arm of mercy doth hath  atoned for your sins: who will gather his people even as  a hen gathereth her chickens under her wings. even  as many as will hearken unto my voice and  humble themselves before me and call upon me  by in mighty prayer Behold verily verily I say  unto you that at this time your sins are forgiven  you therefore you <ye> recieve these things: but remember  to sin no more lest perils shall come upon you
2 Verily verily I say unto you that you are chosen out  of this world to declar my gospel with the sound of  rejoicing as with the voice of a trump. lift up  your hearts and be glad for I am in your  midst and am your advocate with the father and  it is his good will to give you the kingdom; and  as it is written “Whatsoeve[r] ye shall ask in faith  being united in prayer according to my command  ye shall recei[v]e[”] and ye ar called to bring to pass the  gathering of mine elect for mine elect hear my voice  and harden not their hearts; wherefore the decree hath  gone forth from the father that th[e]y shall be gath ered in unto one place upon the face of this land  to prepare their hearts and be prepared in all things  against the day when tribulation and desolation are  sent forth upon the wicked. for the hour is nigh and  the day soon at hand when the earth is ripe. and  all the proud yea all and they that do wickedly  shall be as stubble and I will burn them up saith  the Lord of Hosts that wickedness shall not be upon  the earth; for the Lord <hour> is nigh and that which was  spoken by mine apostles must be fulfilled. for as they  spake so shall it come to pass for I will reveal  myself from heave[n] with power and great glory  with all the hosts thereof, and dwell in righteousness with  men on earth a thousand years and the wicked shall  not stand [p. 93]
