unbelievers, even in outer darkness, where there is weeping,  and wailing, and gnashing of teeth
Pray ye therefore, that their ears may be opened unto your cries, that  that I may be mercyful unto them, that these things may not come  upon them. What I have said unto you must needs be that all  men may be left without excuse that wise men and rulers  may hear and know that which they have never considered; that I  may proce[e]d to bring to pass my act, my strange act, and perform  my work, my strange work, that men may decern between the right eous and the wicked saith your God.
And again, I say unto you, it is contrary to my commandments  and my will, that my servant should  sell my storehouse which I have appointed unto my people, into  the hands of mine enemies. Let not that which I have appointed  be polluted by mine enemies, by the consent of those who call them selves after my name; for this is a very sore and grievious sin  against me and against my people, in consequence of these <those> things  which I have decreed, and are soon to befall the nations.
Therefore, it is my will that my people should claim and hold  claim upon that which I have appointed unto them, though they  should not be permitted to dwell thereon. Nevertheless, I do not  say that they shall not dwell thereon for inasmuch as they bring  forth fruit and works meet for my kingdom, they shall dwell there on: They shall build and another shall not inherit it; they shall plant  vinyards and they shall eat the fruit thereof: even so; Amen.

Verily I say unto you, my friends, behold I will give unto you a  Revelation and commandment, that you may know how to act in the dis charge of your duties concerning the salvation and redemption of  your brethren who have been scattered from the land of Zion: being  driven and smitten by the hands of mine enemies on whom I will  pour out of my wrath without measure in mine own time. for I  have suffered these things for them thus far, that they might fill  up the measure of their iniquities that their cup might be full,  and that those who call themselves after my name might be  chastened for a little season, with a sore and grievious [p. 189]
