Revelation, 6 May 1833 [D&C 93]
Verily thus saith the Lord, it shall come to pass that every  soul who forsaketh their sins and cometh unto me and  calleth on my name and obeyeth my voice and keepe th all my commandments, shall see my face and know  that I am, and that I am the true light that lighteth every  man who cometh into the world, and that I am in the  Father and the Father in me, and the Father and I are one. The  Father because he gave me of his fullness, and the son because  I was in the world and made flesh my tabernacle and dwelt  among the sons of men. I was in the world and received  of my Father, and the works of him were plainly manifest  and I John saw and bare reccord of the fullness of  my glory, and the fullness of John’s reccord is here after  to be revealed, and he bare reccord saying, “I saw his glory  that he was in the beginning before the world was. Therefore  in the beginning the word was, for He was the word even the  messenger of salvation, the light and the redeemer of the  world; the spirit of truth who came into the world because  the world was made by him, and in him was the life of  men, and the light of men. The worlds were made by him  Men were made by him; All things were made by him and  through him and of him. and I John bear reccord that I  beheld his glory, as the glory of the onely begotten of the father  full of grace and truth, even the spirit of truth which  came and dwelt in flesh, and dwelt among us. and I John  saw that he received not of the fullness at the first, but  received grace for grace, and he received not of the fullness  but continued from grace to grace untill he received a fullness,  and thus he was called the son of God because he received not  of the fullness at first. and I John bear reccord and lo: the heavens  were opened and the holy ghost descended upon him in the  form of a dove and set upon him, and there came a voice  out of heaven saying, this is my beloved son and I John bare  reccord that he received a fullness of the glory of the Father [p. 56]
