against them ye shall curse them, and whomsoever ye curse I will curse, and ye shall avenge me of mine enemies; and my presence shall be with you even in avenging me of mine enemies unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me. Let no man be afraid to lay down his life for my sake, for whoso layeth down his life for my sake shall find it again: and whoso is not willing to lay down his life for my sake is not my disciple.
It is my will that my servant should lift up his voice in the congregations in the Eastern countries in prepareing the churchs to keep the commandments which I have given unto them concerning the restoration and redemption of Zion. It is my will that my servant and my servant should not return to the land of their brethren until they have obtained companies to go up unto the land of Zion, by tens, or by twenties or by fifties or by a hundred until they have obtained unto the number of five hundred of the strength of my house. Behold this is my will. Ask and ye shall receive: But men do not always do my will; therefore, if ye cannot obtain five hundred, seek dilligently that peradventure ye may obtain three; and if ye cannot obtain three hundred seek dilligently that peradventure that ye may obtain one hundred: But verily I say unto you a commandment I give unto you that you shall not go up unto the land of Zion until you have obtained a hundred of the strength of my house to go up with you unto the land of Zion. Therefore, as I said unto you, ask and you shall receive. Pray earnestly that peradventure my servant Joseph may go up with you and preside in the midst of my people and organize my Kingdom upon the consecrated land and establish the children of Zion upon the laws and commandments which have been given and which shall be given unto you.
