Revelation, 27–28 December 1832, excerpt [D&C 88:117–126]

REVELATION:
Therefore, verily I say unto you, my friends,  call your , as I have you; and as all have not faith, seek  ye diligently and teach one another words of  wisdom; yea, seek ye out of the best books  words of wisdom: seek learning even by stu dy, and also by faith. Organize yourselves;  prepare every needful thing, and establish a  house, even a house of prayer, a house of fast ing, a house of faith, a house of learning, a  house of glory, a house of order, a house of  God; that your incomings may be in the  name of the Lord; that your outgoings may  be in the name of the Lord; that all your sal utations may be in the name of the Lord,  with uplifted hands unto the Most High.
Therefore, cease from all your light speech es; from all laughter: from all your lustful  desires: from all your pride and lightmind edness, and from all your wicked doings.—  Appoint among yourselves a teacher, and let  not all be spokemen at once; but let one  speak at a time, and let all listen unto his  sayings, that when all have spoken, that all  may be edified of all, and that every man may  have an equal privilege.
See that ye love one another; cease to be  covetous, learn to impart one to another as  the gospel requires; cease to be idle, cease to  be unclean; ceasc to find fault one with ano ther; cease to sleep longer than is needful;  retire to thy bed early, that ye may not be  weary; arise early, that your bodies and your  minds may be invigorated: and above all  things, clothe yourselves with the bonds of  charity, as with a mantle, which is the bond  of perfectness and peace: pray always, that  you may not faint till I come: behold, and  lo, I will come quickly, and receive you unto  myself: Amen. [p. 138]

REVELATION:
Therefore, verily I say unto you, my friends, call your , as I have you; and as all have not faith, seek ye diligently and teach one another words of wisdom; yea, seek ye out of the best books words of wisdom: seek learning even by study, and also by faith. Organize yourselves; prepare every needful thing, and establish a house, even a house of prayer, a house of fasting, a house of faith, a house of learning, a house of glory, a house of order, a house of God; that your incomings may be in the name of the Lord; that your outgoings may be in the name of the Lord; that all your salutations may be in the name of the Lord, with uplifted hands unto the Most High.
Therefore, cease from all your light speeches; from all laughter: from all your lustful desires: from all your pride and lightmindedness, and from all your wicked doings.— Appoint among yourselves a teacher, and let not all be spokemen at once; but let one speak at a time, and let all listen unto his sayings, that when all have spoken, that all may be edified of all, and that every man may have an equal privilege.
See that ye love one another; cease to be covetous, learn to impart one to another as the gospel requires; cease to be idle, cease to be unclean; ceasc to find fault one with another; cease to sleep longer than is needful; retire to thy bed early, that ye may not be weary; arise early, that your bodies and your minds may be invigorated: and above all things, clothe yourselves with the bonds of charity, as with a mantle, which is the bond of perfectness and peace: pray always, that you may not faint till I come: behold, and lo, I will come quickly, and receive you unto myself: Amen.
