shall be pronounced upon the wicked when I shall say  Depart ye cursed
12 But behold I say unto you that I the Lord God  gave unto Adam and <unto> his seed that they should not  die as to the temporal death. until I the Lord God should  send forth angels to declare unto them repentance and  redemption through faith on the name of mine only  begotten son. And thus did I the Lord God appoint  unto man the days of his probation. that by his natural  death he might he might be raised in immortality  unto eternal life; even as many as would believ.  And they that believe not. unto eternal damnation.  for they cannot be redeemed from from their spiritual  fall, because they repent not. for they will love dark ness rather than light, and their deeds are evil and they  recieve their wages of whom they list to obey
13 But behold I say unto you. that little children are  redeemed from the foundation of the world through  mine only begotten; wherefo[r]e they cannot sin. for power  is not given unto satan to tempt little children, until  they begin to become accountable before me; for it  is given unto them even as I will according to mine  own pleasure. that great things may be required  at the hands of their fathers
14 And again I say unto you that whoso having  knowledge have I not commanded to repent repent; and  he that hath no understanding it remaineth in me to  do according as it is written And now I declare  no more unto you at this time Amen
This was sufficient to influence those who had believed  in the virtue of the stone to abandon it and all things  connected with it and when conference convened we  met together united in sentiment and partook of  the Sacrament together in Love and fellowship  At this Conference we ordained many to the ministry  and confirmed several in their faith
Before we parted we recieved the following Revelation [p. 97]
