unto you, I say unto all the . Arise and gird up your loins, take up your cross, follow me, and feed my sheep. Exalt not yourselves; rebel not against my servant Joseph for Verily I say unto you I am with him and my hand shall be over him; and the which I have given him, and also to youward shall not be taken from him untill I come.

First among those among you saith the Lord; who have professed to know my name and have not known me and have blasphemed against me in the midst of my house saith the Lord
Therefore see to it that you trouble not yourselves concerning the affairs of my Church in this place saith the Lord, but purify your hearts before me, and then go ye into all the world and preach my gospel unto every creature who have not received it and he that believeth and is baptized shall be saved, and he that believeth not, and is not [p. 73]
