for the great day of the Lord; yea and again, when the lightnings shall streak forth  from the east unto the west, and shall utter forth their voices unto all that live, and  make the ears of all tingle that hear; saying these words, Repent ye, for the great  day of the Lord is come.
And again, the Lord shall utter his voice out of heaven, saying, Hearken, O ye  nations of the earth, and hear the words of that God who made you; O ye nations  of the earth, how often would I have gathered you, as a hen gathereth her chickens  under her wings, but ye would not; how oft have I called upon you by the mouth  of my servants, and by the ministering of , and by the voice of lightnings,  and by the voice of tempests, and by the voice of earthquakes, and great hailstorms,  and by the voice of famine and pestilence of every kind, and by the great sound of  a trump, and by the voice of judgments, and by the voice of mercy all the day long,  and by the voice of glory, and honor, and the riches of eternal life; and would  have saved you with an everlasting salvation, but ye would not; behold, the day  has come when the cup of the wrath of mine indignation is full. Behold verily, I  say unto you, that these are the words of the Lord your God. Wherefore labor ye,  labor ye, in my vineyard for the last time, for the last time call ye upon the inhab itants of the earth; for in mine own due time will I come upon the earth in judg ment, and my people shall be redeemed, and shall reign with me on earth, for the  great millennial which I have spoken by the mouth of my servants, shall come; for  satan shall be bound, and when he is loosed again, he shall only reign for a little  season, and then cometh the end of the earth. And he that liveth in righteousness,  shall be changed in the twinkling of an eye, and the earth shall pass away so as by  fire and the wicked shall go away into unquenchable fire, and their end no man  knoweth on earth, nor ever shall know until they come before me in judgment.—  Hearken ye to these words, behold I am Jesus Christ, the Savior of the world;  treasure these things up in your hearts, and let the solemnities of eternity rest upon  your minds, be sober, keep all the , even so: Amen.
Revelation, 1 November 1831–A [D&C 68]
A REVELATION, GIVEN NOVEMBER, 1831.
MY servant, , was called, by his , to proclaim the everlasting  gospel, by the spirit of the living God, from people to people, and from  land to land, in the congregations of the wicked, in their synagogues, reasoning  with and expounding all unto them: And behold and lo, this is an en sample unto all those who were unto this , whose mission is  appointed unto them to go forth: And this is the ensample unto them, that they  shall speak as they are moved upon by the ; and whatsoever they shall  speak, when moved upon by the Holy Ghost, shall be scripture; shall be the will  of the Lord; shall be the mind of the Lord; shall be the word of the Lord; shall  be the voice of the Lord, and the power of God unto salvation; Behold this is the  promise of the Lord unto you, O ye my servants: wherefore, be of good cheer, and  do not fear, for I the Lord am with you, and will stand by you; and ye shall bear  record of me even Jesus Christ, that I am the Son of the living God; that I was;  that I am; and that I am to come. This is the word of the Lord unto you my ser vant, ; and also unto my servant, , and unto my servant, , and  unto my servant ; and unto all the faithful of my church: Go ye in to all the world; preach the gospel to every creature; acting in the authority which  I have given you; in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the  Holy Ghost; and he that believeth, and is baptized, shall be saved, and he that be lieveth not shall be damned; and he that believeth shall be blessed with signs fol lowing, even as it is written: And unto you it shall be given to know the signs of  the times, and the signs of the coming of the Son of man; and of as many as the  Father shall bear record, to you it shall be given power to seal them up unto eter nal life: Amen.
And now, concerning the items in addition to the and ,  they are these: There remaineth hereafter in the due time of the Lord, other  to be set apart unto the church, to minister even according to the first; wherefore  it shall be an who is worthy; and he shall be appointed by a  of high priests. And again, no bishop or judge, which shall be set apart for this  ministry, shall be tried or condemned for any crime, save it be before a conference  of high priests; and in as much as he is found guilty before a conference of high priests, by testimony that cannot be impeached, he shall be condemned or forgiven,  according to the laws of the church. And again, in as much as parents have chil dren in , that teach them not to understand the doctrine of repentance; faith  in Christ the Son of the living God; and of baptism and the  by the , when eight years old: the sin be upon the head of  the parents, for this shall be a law unto the inhabitants of , and their children  shall be for the remission of their sins when eight years old, and receive  the: and they also shall teach their children to pray, and to  walk uprightly before the Lord. And the inhabitants of Zion shall also observe  the sabbath day to keep it holy. And the inhabitants of Zion, also, shall remem ber their labors, in as much as they are appointed to labor, in all faithfulness, for  the idler shall be had in remembrance before the Lord. Now I the Lord am not  well pleased with the inhabitants of Zion, for there are idlers among them; and  their children are also growing up in wickedness: They also seek not earnestly  the riches of eternity, but their eyes are full of greediness. These things ought not  to be, and must be done away from among them: wherefore let my servant ,  carry these sayings unto the land of Zion. And a commandment I give unto them,  that he that observeth not his prayers before the Lord in the season thereof, let him  be had in rememberance before the judge of my people. These sayings are true  and faithful: wherefore transgress them not, neither take therefrom. Behold I am  Alpha and Omega, and I come quickly: Amen. [p. [3]]
