the holy ; and he that watcheth not for  me shall be cut off.
But before the arm of the Lord shall fall,  an angel shall sound his trump, and the saints  that have slept, shall come forth to meet me  in the cloud. Wherefore if ye have slept in  peace blessed are you, for as you now behold  me and know that I am, even so shall ye  come unto me and your souls shall live, and  your redemption shall be perfected; and the  saints shall come forth from the four quarters  of the earth: then shall the arm of the Lord fall  upon the nations, and then shall the Lord set  his foot upon this mount, and it shall cleave  in twain, and the earth shall tremble and reel  to and fro, and the heavens also shall shake,  and the Lord shall utter his voice and all the  ends of the earth shall hear it; and the na tions of the earth shall mourn, and they that  have laughed shall see their folly, and calam ity shall cover the mocker, and the scorner  shall be consumed, and they that have watch ed for iniquity, shall be hewn down and cast  into the fire.
And then shall the Jews look upon me,  and say what are these wounds in thy hands  and in thy feet? then shall they know that I  am the Lord; for I will say unto them, these  wounds, are the wounds with which I was  wounded in the house of my friends. I am  he who was lifted up. I am Jesus who was  crucified. I am the Son of God. And then  shall they weep because of their iniquities;  then shall they lament because they persecu ted their King. And then shall the heathen  nations be redeemed, and they which knew  no law shall have part in the first resurrect:on,  and it shall be tolerable for them; and  shall be bound that he shall have no place in  the hearts of the children of men.
And at that day when I shall come in my  glory, shall the parable be fulfilled which I  spake concerning the ten virgins; for they  that are wise and have received the truth  and have taken the Holy Spirit for their guide,  and have not been deceived; verily I say un to you, they shall not be hewn down and  cast into the fire, but shall abide the day,  and the earth shall be given unto them for an  inheritance; and they shall multiply and wax  strong, and their children shall grow up with out sin unto salvation, for the Lord shall be  in their midst, and his glory shall be upon  them, and he will be their King and their  Lawgiver.
And now, behold I say unto you, it shall  not be given unto you to know any further  than this until the new testament be trans lated, and in it all these things shall be made  known; wherefore I give unto you that ye  may now it, that ye may be prepar ed for the things to come; for verily I say  unto you that great things await you: ye  hear of wars in foreign lands, but behold I  say unto you they are nigh even at your doors,  and not many years hence ye shall hear of  wars in your own lands. Wherefore I the  Lord have said, gather ye out from the eastern  lands, assemble ye yourselves together ye of my church; go ye forth into the wes tern countries, call upon the inhabitants to  repent, and inasmuch as they do repent, build  up churches unto me; and with one heart and  with one mind, gather up your riches that ye  may purchase an inheritance which shall here after be appointed you; and it shall be called  the ; a land of peace; a city of  refuge; a place of safety for the saints of the  most high God; and the glory of the Lord  shall be there, and the terror of the Lord also  shall be there, insomuch that the wicked shall  not come into it: and it shall be called .  And it shall come to pass among the wicked,  that every man who will not take his sword  against his neighbor, must needs flee unto Zi on for safety. And there shall be gathered  unto it out of every nation under heaven; and  it shall be the only people that shall not be at  war one with the other. And it shall be said  among the wicked, let us not go up against  Zion; for the inhabitants of Zion are terrible —wherefore, we cannot stand.
And it shall come to pass that the righteous  shall be gathered out from among all nations,  and shall come to Zion, singing, with songs  of everlasting joy. Even so. Amen. [p. 6]
the holy ; and he that watcheth not for me shall be cut off.
But before the arm of the Lord shall fall, an angel shall sound his trump, and the saints that have slept, shall come forth to meet me in the cloud. Wherefore if ye have slept in peace blessed are you, for as you now behold me and know that I am, even so shall ye come unto me and your souls shall live, and your redemption shall be perfected; and the saints shall come forth from the four quarters of the earth: then shall the arm of the Lord fall upon the nations, and then shall the Lord set his foot upon this mount, and it shall cleave in twain, and the earth shall tremble and reel to and fro, and the heavens also shall shake, and the Lord shall utter his voice and all the ends of the earth shall hear it; and the nations of the earth shall mourn, and they that have laughed shall see their folly, and calamity shall cover the mocker, and the scorner shall be consumed, and they that have watched for iniquity, shall be hewn down and cast into the fire.
And then shall the Jews look upon me, and say what are these wounds in thy hands and in thy feet? then shall they know that I am the Lord; for I will say unto them, these wounds, are the wounds with which I was wounded in the house of my friends. I am he who was lifted up. I am Jesus who was crucified. I am the Son of God. And then shall they weep because of their iniquities; then shall they lament because they persecuted their King. And then shall the heathen nations be redeemed, and they which knew no law shall have part in the first resurrect:on, and it shall be tolerable for them; and shall be bound that he shall have no place in the hearts of the children of men.
And at that day when I shall come in my glory, shall the parable be fulfilled which I spake concerning the ten virgins; for they that are wise and have received the truth and have taken the Holy Spirit for their guide, and have not been deceived; verily I say unto you, they shall not be hewn down and cast into the fire, but shall abide the day, and the earth shall be given unto them for an inheritance; and they shall multiply and wax strong, and their children shall grow up without sin unto salvation, for the Lord shall be in their midst, and his glory shall be upon them, and he will be their King and their Lawgiver.
And now, behold I say unto you, it shall not be given unto you to know any further than this until the new testament be translated, and in it all these things shall be made known; wherefore I give unto you that ye may now it, that ye may be prepared for the things to come; for verily I say unto you that great things await you: ye hear of wars in foreign lands, but behold I say unto you they are nigh even at your doors, and not many years hence ye shall hear of wars in your own lands. Wherefore I the Lord have said, gather ye out from the eastern lands, assemble ye yourselves together ye of my church; go ye forth into the western countries, call upon the inhabitants to repent, and inasmuch as they do repent, build up churches unto me; and with one heart and with one mind, gather up your riches that ye may purchase an inheritance which shall hereafter be appointed you; and it shall be called the ; a land of peace; a city of refuge; a place of safety for the saints of the most high God; and the glory of the Lord shall be there, and the terror of the Lord also shall be there, insomuch that the wicked shall not come into it: and it shall be called . And it shall come to pass among the wicked, that every man who will not take his sword against his neighbor, must needs flee unto Zion for safety. And there shall be gathered unto it out of every nation under heaven; and it shall be the only people that shall not be at war one with the other. And it shall be said among the wicked, let us not go up against Zion; for the inhabitants of Zion are terrible—wherefore, we cannot stand.
And it shall come to pass that the righteous shall be gathered out from among all nations, and shall come to Zion, singing, with songs of everlasting joy. Even so. Amen. [p. 6]
