Verily thus saith the Lord unto my servants, , and ; Let them settle up their business speedily and Journey from the land of before I, the Lord, sendeth snow <again> upon the ground. Let them awake and arise, and come forth and not tarry for I the Lord commandeth it,— therefore, if they tarry it shall not be well with them. Let them repent of all their sins, and all their covetous desires before me saith the Lord; For what is property unto me saith the Lord. Let the properties of at be turned out for debts saith the Lord, Let them go saith the Lord, and whatsoever remaineth. let it remain in your hands saith the Lord, for have I not the fowls of Heaven, and also the fish of the Sea, and the beasts of the Mountains?

Is there not room enough upon the mountains of , or upon the plains of , or the land where Adam dwelt, that you should not Covet that which is but the drop and neglect the more weighty matters. Therefore, come up hither, unto the Land of My people, even Zion. Let my Servant be faithful over a few things, and he shall be ruler over many things. Let him preside in the midst of my people, in the city , and let him be blessed with the blessings of my people.— Let My Servant be ashamed of the Nicolitans and of all their secret abominations, and of all his littleness of soul before me saith the Lord, and come up unto the land of , and be a Bishop unto my people saith the Lord, not in name but in deed Saith the Lord. And again, Verily I say unto you I remember my Servant . Behold, verily I say unto him, that his name shall be had in sacred remembrance from generation to generation. forever and ever Saith the Lord; Therefore let him contend earnestly for the redemption of the First Presidency of My church Saith the Lord; and when he falls he shall rise again, for his sacrifice shall be more sacred to me than his increase saith the Lord; Therefore let him come up hither speedily unto the land of Zion, and in due time he shall be made a merchant unto my name saith the Lord for the benefit of my people; Therefore let no man despise my servant . but let the blessings. of my people be upon him forever and ever, Amen.
And. again I. say unto. you let all the Saints in the land of remember the Lord their God, and mine house to preserve it holy, and to overthrow the money changers in mine own due time. Saith the Lord. [p. 56]
