A REVELATION GIVEN  MARCH 8, 1831.
Hearken, O ye people of my church, for  verily I say unto you, that these things are  spoken unto you for your profit and learning;  but notwithstanding these things which are  written, it always has been given to the of my church, from the beginning, and  ever shall be, to conduct all meetings as they  are directed and guided by the Holy Spirit:  nevertheless ye are never to cast  any one out from your public meetings,  which are held before the world: ye are also  commanded never to cast one, who belongs  to the church, out of your meet ings: nevertheless, if any have trespassed,  let them not partake until they make recon, ciliation. And again I say unto you, ye shal-  not cast any out of your sacrament meetings  who are earnestly seeking the kingdom; I  speak this concerning those who are not of  the church. And again I say unto you, con cerning your meetings, that if  there be any that are not of the church, that  are earnestly seeking after the kingdom, ye  shall not cast them out, but ye are command ed in all things to ask of God who gives lib erally, and that which the Spirit testifies un to you, even so I would that ye should do in  all holiness of heart, walking uprightly be fore me, considering the end of your salva tion, doing all things with prayer and thanks giving, that ye may not be seduced by evil  spirits, or doctrines of devils, or the com mandments of men, for some are of men, and  others of devils: Wherefore, beware lest ye  are deceived! and that ye may not be deceiv ed, seek ye earnestly the best gifts, always  remembering for what they are given; for  verily I say unto you, they are given for the  benefit of those who love me and keep all my  commandments, and him that seeks so to do,  that all may be benefitted; that seek or that  ask of me, that ask and not for a sign that  they may consume it upon their lusts.
