Revelation, 7 May 1831 [D&C 49]

REVELATION.
Revelation, to , , and , given May, 1831.
Hearken unto my word, my servant , and , and , for behold, ver ily I say unto you, that I give unto you a  , that you shall go and preach  my gospel, which ye have received, even as  ye have received it, unto the shakers. Be hold I say unto you, that they desire to know  the truth in part, but not all, for they are not  right before me, and must needs repent:  wherefore I send you, my servants  and , to preach the gospel unto them;  and my servant shall be unto  this work, that he may reason with them,  not according to that which he has received  of them, but according to that which shall  be taught him hy you, my servants, and by  so doing I will bless him, otherwise he shall  not prosper: thus saith the Lord, for I am  God and have sent mine only begotten Son  into the world, for the redemption of the  world, and have decreed that he that receiveth  him shall be saved, and he that reciveth him  not, shall be damned.
And they have done unto the Son of man  even as they listed; and he has taken his  power on the right hand of his glory, and  now reigneth in the heavens, and will reign  till he descends on the earth to put all ene mies under his feet: which time is nigh at  hand: I the Lord God have spoken it: but  the hour and the day no man knoweth, nei ther the in heaven, nor shall they  know until he comes: wherefore I will that  all men shall repent, for all are under sin,  except them which I have reserved unto my self, holy men that ye know not of: where fore I say unto you, that I have sent unto  you mine , even that  which was from the beginning, and that which  I have promised I have so fulfilled, and the  nations of the earth shall bow to it; and, if  not of themselves, they shall come down, for  that which is now exalted of itself, shall be  laid low of power: wherefore I give unto you  a commandment, that ye go among this peo ple and say unto them, like unto mine apos tle of old, whose name was Peter: Believe  on the name of the Lord Jesus, who was on  the earth, and is to come, the beginning and  the end; repent and be in the name  of Jesus Christ, according to the holy com mandment, for the remission of sins; and  whoso doeth this, shall receive the, by the laying on of the hands of  the of this church.
And again, I say unto you, that whoso for biddeth to marry, is not ordained of God, for  marriage is ordained of God unto man: where fore it is lawful that he should have one wife,  and they twain shall be one flesh, and all this  that the earth might answer the end of its  creation; and that it might be filled with  the measure of man, according to his creation  before the world was made. And whoso for biddeth to abstain from meats, that man  should not eat the same, is not ordained of  God; for behold the beasts of the field, and  the fowls of the air, and that which cometh  of the earth, is ordained for the use of man,  for food, and for raiment, and that he might [p. 93]

REVELATION.
Revelation, to , , and , given May, 1831.
Hearken unto my word, my servant , and , and , for behold, verily I say unto you, that I give unto you a , that you shall go and preach my gospel, which ye have received, even as ye have received it, unto the shakers. Behold I say unto you, that they desire to know the truth in part, but not all, for they are not right before me, and must needs repent: wherefore I send you, my servants and , to preach the gospel unto them; and my servant shall be unto this work, that he may reason with them, not according to that which he has received of them, but according to that which shall be taught him hy you, my servants, and by so doing I will bless him, otherwise he shall not prosper: thus saith the Lord, for I am God and have sent mine only begotten Son into the world, for the redemption of the world, and have decreed that he that receiveth him shall be saved, and he that reciveth him not, shall be damned.
And they have done unto the Son of man even as they listed; and he has taken his power on the right hand of his glory, and now reigneth in the heavens, and will reign till he descends on the earth to put all enemies under his feet: which time is nigh at hand: I the Lord God have spoken it: but the hour and the day no man knoweth, neither the in heaven, nor shall they know until he comes: wherefore I will that all men shall repent, for all are under sin, except them which I have reserved unto myself, holy men that ye know not of: wherefore I say unto you, that I have sent unto you mine , even that which was from the beginning, and that which I have promised I have so fulfilled, and the nations of the earth shall bow to it; and, if not of themselves, they shall come down, for that which is now exalted of itself, shall be laid low of power: wherefore I give unto you a commandment, that ye go among this people and say unto them, like unto mine apostle of old, whose name was Peter: Believe on the name of the Lord Jesus, who was on the earth, and is to come, the beginning and the end; repent and be in the name of Jesus Christ, according to the holy commandment, for the remission of sins; and whoso doeth this, shall receive the, by the laying on of the hands of the of this church.
And again, I say unto you, that whoso forbiddeth to marry, is not ordained of God, for marriage is ordained of God unto man: wherefore it is lawful that he should have one wife, and they twain shall be one flesh, and all this that the earth might answer the end of its creation; and that it might be filled with the measure of man, according to his creation before the world was made. And whoso forbiddeth to abstain from meats, that man should not eat the same, is not ordained of God; for behold the beasts of the field, and the fowls of the air, and that which cometh of the earth, is ordained for the use of man, for food, and for raiment, and that he might [p. 93]
