in my kingdom
And his servant went straitway and done all things what soever his Lord commanded him, and after many days all things  were fulfilled.
And again, verily I say unto you, I will show unto you wisdom  in me concerning all the churches, in as much as they are willing  to be guided in a right and proper way for their salvation; that the  work of the gathering together of my saints may continue, that I may  build them up unto my name, upon holy places; for the time of harvest  is come, and my word must needs be fulfilled. therefore I must gath er together my people according to the parable of the wheat and tears;  that the wheat may be secured in the garner, to possess eternal life  and be crowned with celestial glory, when I shall come in the king dom of my Father, to reward every man according as his work  shall be. While the tares shall be bound in bundles, and their  bands made strong that they may be burned with unquenchable  fire.
Therefore, a commandment I give unto all the churches, that they  shall continue to gather together unto the place which I have appoin ted. Nevertheless as I have said unto you, in a former commandment,  Let not your gathering be in haste, nor by flight; but let all things be  prepared before you. And in order that all things be prepared before  you, observe the commandments which I have given concerning  these things: which saith or teacheth, to purches all the lands by mon ey which can be purchaced for money in the regions round about  the land which I have appointed to be the land of Zion; for the  beginning of the gathering of my saints; all the land which can  be purchaced in , and the counties round about, and  leave the residue in mine hand.
Now, verily I say unto you, let all the churches gather together all  their money: let these things be done in their time: be not in haste  and observe to have all things prepared before you. And let honor able men be appointed; even wise men, and send them to pur chase these lands.
And every church in the eastern countries, when they are  built <up>; if they will hearken unto this counsel. An they may buy lands  and gather together on them. And in this way they may establish [p. 187]
in my kingdom
And his servant went straitway and done all things whatsoever his Lord commanded him, and after many days all things were fulfilled.
And again, verily I say unto you, I will show unto you wisdom in me concerning all the churches, in as much as they are willing to be guided in a right and proper way for their salvation; that the work of the gathering together of my saints may continue, that I may build them up unto my name, upon holy places; for the time of harvest is come, and my word must needs be fulfilled. therefore I must gather together my people according to the parable of the wheat and tears; that the wheat may be secured in the garner, to possess eternal life and be crowned with celestial glory, when I shall come in the kingdom of my Father, to reward every man according as his work shall be. While the tares shall be bound in bundles, and their bands made strong that they may be burned with unquenchable fire.
Therefore, a commandment I give unto all the churches, that they shall continue to gather together unto the place which I have appointed. Nevertheless as I have said unto you, in a former commandment, Let not your gathering be in haste, nor by flight; but let all things be prepared before you. And in order that all things be prepared before you, observe the commandments which I have given concerning these things: which saith or teacheth, to purches all the lands by money which can be purchaced for money in the regions round about the land which I have appointed to be the land of Zion; for the beginning of the gathering of my saints; all the land which can be purchaced in , and the counties round about, and leave the residue in mine hand.
Now, verily I say unto you, let all the churches gather together all their money: let these things be done in their time: be not in haste and observe to have all things prepared before you. And let honorable men be appointed; even wise men, and send them to purchase these lands.
And every church in the eastern countries, when they are built up; if they will hearken unto this counsel. they may buy lands and gather together on them. And in this way they may establish [p. 187]
