Revelations.
REVELATION, 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 re ceived 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 by 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 receiveth 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 angels in heaven, nor shall they know  until he come: wherefore I will that all men shall repent, for all are under sin, ex cept them which I have reserved unto myself, 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: where fore 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 command ment, 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 forbideth 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 forbid deth to abstain from meats, that man should not eat, 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  have in abundance, but it is not given that one man should possess that which is  above another: wherefore the world lieth in sin; and wo be unto man that sheddeth  blood, or that wasteth flesh and hath no need. And again: verily I say unto you,  that the son of Man cometh not in the form of a woman, neither of a man travelling  on the earth: wherefore be not deceived but continue in steadfastness, looking forth  for the heavens to be shaken; and the earth to tremble, and to reel to and fro as a  drunken man; and for the valleys to be exalted; and for the mountains to be made  low; and for the rough places to become smooth; and all this when the angel shall  sound his trumpet, but before the great day of the Lord shall come, Jacob shall  flourish in the wilderness; and the shall blossom as the rose; shall  flourish upon the hills, and rejoice upon the mountains, and shall be assembled to gether unto the place which I have appointed. Behold I say unto you, Go forth  as I have commanded you; repent of all your sins; ask and ye shall receive; knock  and it shall be opened unto you: Behold I will go before you, and be your rere ward; and I will be in your midst, and you shall not be confounded: Behold I  am Jesus Christ, and I come quickly; even so: Amen.
