Revelation, circa August 1830 [D&C 27]
REVELATIONS.
A GIVEN, SEPTEMBER 4, 1830.
LISTEN to the voice of Jesus Christ, your Lord, your God, and your Redeem er, whose word is quick and powerful.
For behold I say unto you, that it mattereth not what ye shall eat, or what ye  shall drink, when ye partake of the , if it so be that ye do it with an  eye single to my glory; remembering unto the Father my body which was laid  down for you, and my blood which was shed for the remission of your sins:
Wherefore a commandment I give unto you, that you shall not purchase wine,  neither strong drink of your enemies:
Wherefore you shall partake of none, except it is made new among you, yea,  in this my Father’s kingdom which shall be built up on the earth.
Behold this is wisdom in me, wherefore marvel not, for the hour cometh that I  will drink of the fruit of the vine with you, on the earth, and with all those whom  my Father hath given me out of the world:
Wherefore lift up your hearts and rejoice, and gird up your loins and be faith ful until I come: even so. Amen.
Revelation, 1 November 1831–B [D&C 1]
REVELATION GIVEN, , OHIO, NOVEMBER 1, 1831.
HEARKEN, O ye people of my church, saith the voice of Him who dwells  on high, and whose eyes are upon all men; yea, verily I say, hearken ye  people from afar, and ye that are upon the islands of the sea, listen together; for  verily the voice of the Lord is unto all men, and there is none to escape, and there  is no eye that shall not see, neither ear that shall not hear, neither heart that shall  not be penetrated; and the rebellious shall be pierced with much sorrow, for their  iniquties shall be spoken upon the house-tops, and their secret acts shall be re vealed; and the voice of warning shall be unto all people, by the mouths of my  disciples, whom I have chosen in these last days, and they shall go forth and none  shall stay them, for I the Lord have them.
Behold, this is mine authority, and the authority of my servants, and my Pre face unto the Book of my Commandments, which I have given them to publish  unto you, O inhabitants of the earth:
Wherefore fear and tremble, O ye people for what I the Lord have decreed, in  them, shall be fulfilled.
And verily, I say unto you, that they who go forth, bearing these tidings unto  the inhabitants of the earth, to them is power given, to seal both on earth and in  heaven, the unbelieving and rebellious; yea, verily, to seal them up unto the day  when the wrath of God shall be poured out upon the wicked, without measure,  unto the day when the Lord shall come to recompence unto every man according  to his work, and measure to every man according to the measure which he has  measured to his fellow man.
Wherefore the voice of the Lord is unto the ends of the earth, that all that will  hear may hear:
Prepare ye, prepare ye for that which is to come, for the Lord is nigh; and the  anger of the Lord is kindled, and his sword is bathed in heaven, and it shall fall  upon the inhabitants of the earth; and the arm of the Lord shall be revealed; and  the day cometh, that they who will not hear the voice of the Lord, neither the  voice of his servants, neither give heed to the words of the prophets, and ,  shall be cut off from among the people:
For they have strayed from mine , and have broken mine ; they seek not the Lord to establish his righteousness, but every man  walketh in his own way, and after the image of his own god, whose image is in  the likeness of the world, and whose substance is that of an idol, which waxeth  old and shall perish in Babylon, even Babylon the great, which shall fall:
Wherefore I the Lord, knowing the calamity which should come upon the in habitants of the earth, called upon my servant Joseph, and spake unto him from  heaven, and gave him commandments; and also gave commandments to others,  that they should proclaim these things unto the world, and all this that it might  be fulfilled, which was written by the prophets:
The weak things of the world should come forth and break down the mighty  and strong ones; that man should not counsel his fellow man, neither trust in the  arm of flesh, but that every man might speak in the name of God, the Lord, even  the Savior of the world; that faith also might increase in the earth; that mine ev erlasting covenant might be established that the fulness of my gospel might be pro claimed by the weak and the simple, unto the ends of the world; and before kings  and rulers. Behold I am God and have spoken it:
These commandments are of me, and were given unto my servants in their  weakness, after the manner of their language, that they might come to under standing; and inasmuch as they erred, it might be made known:
And inasmuch as they sought wisdom, they might be instructed; and inas much as they sinned, they might be chastened, that they might repent; and inas much as they were humble, they might be made strong, and blessed from on high,  and receive knowledge from time to time:
After they, having received the record of the ; yea, even my servant  Joseph might have power to translate through the mercy of God, by the power of  God, the book of Mormon:
And also, those to whom these commandments were given, might have power  to lay the foundation of this church, and to bring it forth out of obscurity, and out  of darkness, the only true and living church upon the face of the whole earth,  with which I the Lord am well pleased, speaking unto the church collectively and  not individually, for I the Lord cannot look upon sin with the least degree of  allowance:
Nevertheless, he that repenteth and doeth the commandments of the Lord,  shall be forgiven, and he that repenteth not, from him shall be taken even the light  which he hath received, for my Spirit shall not always strive with man, saith the  Lord of hosts.
And again, verily I say unto you, O inhabitants of the earth, for I the Lord am  willing to make these things known unto all flesh, for I am no respecter to per sons, and willeth that all men shall know that the day speedily cometh, the hour  is not yet, but is nigh at hand, when peace shall be taken from the earth, and the  devil shall have power over his own dominion; and also, the Lord shall have pow er over his saints, and shall reign in their midst, and shall come down in judgment  upon Idumea, or the world.
Search these commandments, for they are true and faithful, and the prophecies  and promises which are in them, shall all be fulfilled.
What I the Lord have spoken, I have spoken, and I excuse not myself, and  though the heavens and the earth pass away, my word shall not pass away, but  shall all be fulfilled, whether by mine own voice, or by the voice of my servants,  it is the same:
For behold, and lo, the Lord is God, and the Spirit beareth record, and the  record is true, and the truth abideth forever and ever: Amen.
