Revelation, Spring 1829 [D&C 10]

Shall publish it as the Record of Nephi & thus I will confound  those which have altered my words I will not suffer that they  shall destroy my work yea I will shew unto them that my wisdom  is greater than the cuning of the Devil Behold thy they have only  got a part or an abridgement of the account of Nephi Behold there  are many things engraven on the Plates of Nephi which do throw  greater views upon my Gospel therefore it is wisdom in me that  ye should translate this first part of the engravings of Nephi  & send forth in this work & behold all the remainder of this work  doth contain all those parts of my Gospel which the <my> Holy Prophets  yea & also my Deciples desired in their Prayers should come forth  unto this People & I said unto them that it should be granted unto  them according to their faith in their Prayers yea & this is their  faith that my Gospel which I give unto them that they might  Preach in their days might come unto their Brethren the Laman ites & also all that had become Lamanites because of their dissentions  now this is not all <but> their faith in their Prayers where [were] that this  Gospel should be made known also if it were posible that  other Nations should p[o]ssess the Land & thus they did leave a  blessing upon this Land in their prayers that whosoever should  believe in this Gospel in this land might have Eternal life  yea that it might be free unto all of whatsoever Nation Kindred  Tongue or People they may be & now Behold according to their  faith in their Prayers will I bring this part of my Gospel  to the knowledge of my People Behold I do not bring it to  destroy that which they have received but to build it up & for  this cause have I said if this generation harden not their hearts I  will establish my Church among them now I do not say this  to destroy my Church but I say this to build up my Church therefore  whosoever belongeth to my Church need not fear for such shall inheri t the Kingdom of Heaven but it is they which do not fear me neither  keep my commandments but buildeth up Churches unto themselves to get  gain yea & all those that do wickedly & buildeth up the Kingdom of  the Devil yea Verily Verily I say unto you it is they that I will disturb  disturb & cause to tremble & shake to the center Behold I am Jesus  Christ the Son of God I came unto my own & my own received [p. 11]
