And that ye might escape the power of the enemy, and be gathered unto me a  righteous people without spot and blameless:
Wherefore, for this cause I gave unto you the , that ye should go  to the ; and there I will give unto you my law & there you shall be endowed  with power from on high, and from thence, whomsoever I will shall go forth among  all nations, and it shall be told them what they shall do, for I have a great work  laid up in store:
For Israel shall be saved, and I will lead them whithersoever I will, and no pow er shall stay my hand.
And now I give unto the church in these parts, a commandment, that certain  men among them shall be appointed, and they shall be appointed by the voice of  the church; and they shall look to the poor and the needy, and administer to their  relief, that they shall not suffer; and send them forth to the place which I have  commanded them; and this shall be their work, to govern the affairs of the property  of this church.
And they that have farms, that cannot be sold, let them be left or rented as  seemeth them good.
See that all things are preserved, and when men are endowed with power from  on high, and are sent forth, all these things shall be gathered unto the bosom of the  church.
And if ye seek the riches which it is the will of the Father to give unto you, ye  shall be the richest of all people, for ye shall have the riches of eternity: And it  must needs be that the riches of the earth is mine to give:
But beware of pride lest ye become as the of old.
And again: I say unto you, I give unto you a commandment, that every man  both , , and also member, go to with his might, with the labor of  his hands, to prepare and accomplish these things, which I have commanded.
And let your preaching be the warning voice, every man to his neighbor, in mild ness and in meekness.
And go ye out from among the wicked. Save yourselves.
Be ye clean that bear the vessels of the Lord. Even so: Amen.
