Revelation, 12 August 1831 [D&C 61]

Revelation given August, 1831.
Behold, and hearken unto the voice of him  who has all power, who is from everlasting  to everlasting, even Alpha and Omega, the  beginning and the end. Behold, verily thus  saith the Lord unto you O ye of my  church, who are assembled upon this spot,  whose sins are now forgiven you, for I the  Lord forgiveth sins, and am merciful unto  those who confess their sins with humble  hearts: but verily I say unto you, that it is  not needful for this whole company of mine  elders, to be moving swiftly upon the waters,  whilst the inhabitants on either side are per ishing in unbelief: nevertheless, I suffered it  that ye might bear record: behold there are  many dangers upon the waters and more es pecially hereafter, for I the Lord have de creed, in mine anger, many destructions up on the waters; yea, and especially upon these  waters: nevertheless, all flesh is in mine hand,  and he that is faithful among you, shall not  perish by the waters.
Wherefore it is expedient that my servant  , and my servant , be in haste upon their errand and  mission: nevertheless I would not suffer that  ye should part until you are chastened for all  your sins, that you might be one; that you  might not perish in wickedness; but now verily  I say, it behooveth me that ye should part:  wherefore let my servants and  , take their former com pany, and let them take their journey in haste  that they may fill their mission, and through  faith they shall overcome; and inasmuch as  they are faithful, they shall be preserved, and  I the Lord will be with them. And let the  residue take that which is needful for cloth ing. Let my servant take  that which is not needful with him, as you  shall agree. And now behold, for your good  I gave unto you a concerning  these things; and I the Lord will reason with  you as with men in days of old. [p. 105]
