transgressed the , wherein he  became subject to the will of the , be cause he yielded unto temptation: wherefore,  I the Lord God caused that he should be cast  out from the garden of Eden, from my pres ence, because of his transgression; wherein  he became spiritually dead, which is the first  death, even that same death which, is the  last death, which is spiritual, which shall be  pronounced upon the wicked when I shall  say, depart ye cursed. But behold I say un to you, that I the Lord God gave unto Ad am, and unto his seed, that they should not  die as to the temporal death, until I the Lord  God should send forth angels to declare unto  them repentance and redemption through  faith on the name of my only begotten Son;  and thus did I the Lord God appoint unto  man the days of his probation, that by his  natural death he might be raised in immor tality unto eternal life, even as many as  would believe on my name, and they that be lieve not, unto eternal damnation, for they  cannot be redeemed from their spiritual fall,  because they repent not, for they love dark ness more than light, and their deads are evil,  and they receive their wages of whom they  list to obey. But behold, I say unto you,  that little children are redeemed from the  foundation of the world, through my only  begotton: Wherefore they cannot sin, for  power is not given to satan to tempt little  children until they begin to be accountable  before me, for it is given unto them even as  I will, according to my own pleasure, that  great things may be required at the hand of  their fathers. And again, I say unto you,  that whoso, having knowledge, have not I  commanded to repent? and he that has no  understanding, it remains in me to do accor ding as it is written. And now, behold, I  declare no more unto you at this time.—  Amen.

Revelation, 30 October 1831 [D&C 65]

A REVELATION ON PRAYER, GIV EN OCTOBER 30, 1831.
Hearken, and lo, a voice as of one sent  down from on high, who is mighty and pow erful, whose going forth is unto the ends of  the earth; yea, whose voice is unto men,  Prepare ye the way of the Lord, make his  paths strait. The keys of the kingdom of  God, are committed unto man on the earth,  and from thence shall the gospel roll forth un to the ends of the earth, as the stone which  is hewn from the mountain without hands  shall roll forth, until it has filled the whole  earth; yea, a voice crying, Prepare ye the  way of the Lord, prepare ye the supper of  the Lamb, make ready for the bridegroom;  pray unto the Lord; call upon his holy  name; make known his wonderful works  among the people; call upon the Lord; that  his kingdom may go forth upon the earth;  that the inhabitants thereof may receive it,  and be prepared for the days to come, in the  which the Son of man shall come down in  heaven, clothed in the brightness of his glo ry, to meet the kingdom of God which is set  up on the earth: Wherefore, may the king dom of God go forth, that the kingdom of  heaven may come, that thou O God may be  glorified in heaven, so on earth, that thy  enemies may be subdued; for thine is the  honor, power and glory, forever and ever:  Amen.

But behold I say unto you, that I the Lord God gave unto Adam, and unto his seed, that they should not die as to the temporal death, until I the Lord God should send forth angels to declare unto them repentance and redemption through faith on the name of my only begotten Son; and thus did I the Lord God appoint unto man the days of his probation, that by his natural death he might be raised in immortality unto eternal life, even as many as would believe on my name, and they that believe not, unto eternal damnation, for they cannot be redeemed from their spiritual fall, because they repent not, for they love darkness more than light, and their deads are evil, and they receive their wages of whom they list to obey.

A REVELATION ON PRAYER, GIVEN OCTOBER 30, 1831.
Hearken, and lo, a voice as of one sent down from on high, who is mighty and powerful, whose going forth is unto the ends of the earth; yea, whose voice is unto men, Prepare ye the way of the Lord, make his paths strait. The keys of the kingdom of God, are committed unto man on the earth, and from thence shall the gospel roll forth unto the ends of the earth, as the stone which is hewn from the mountain without hands shall roll forth, until it has filled the whole earth; yea, a voice crying, Prepare ye the way of the Lord, prepare ye the supper of the Lamb, make ready for the bridegroom; pray unto the Lord; call upon his holy name; make known his wonderful works among the people; call upon the Lord; that his kingdom may go forth upon the earth; that the inhabitants thereof may receive it, and be prepared for the days to come, in the which the Son of man shall come down in heaven, clothed in the brightness of his glory, to meet the kingdom of God which is set up on the earth: Wherefore, may the kingdom of God go forth, that the kingdom of heaven may come, that thou O God may be glorified in heaven, so on earth, that thy enemies may be subdued; for thine is the honor, power and glory, forever and ever: Amen.
