no one shall be
appointed to receive commandm ents and revelations in this Church excepting
Smith Jr. for he receiveth them even as
Moses and thou shalt be obedient unto the things which I shall give unto
him even as Aaron to declare faithfully the commandments and
revelations with power and authority unto the Church. And if thou art led
at any time by the comfo[r]ter to
speak or teach at all times by way of commandment unto the church
thou mayest do it. But thou shalt not write by way of commandment but
And thou shalt not command him who is thy
head and at the head of the church for I have given him the Keys of
the mysteries and the revel ations which are sealed until I shall appoint
unto them another in his stead
3 And now behold I say
unto you that you shall go unto the Lamenites and preach my gos pel
unto them and inasmuch as they receive the teachings thou shalt cause my
church to be estab lished among them and thou shalt have revelations
but write them not by way of commandment.
behold I say unto you that [it] is not
revealed and no man knoweth when the city shall be built but it shall
be given hereafter.
Behold I say unto you that it shall be
on the borders of the Lamenites
4 Thou shalt not
leave this place until af ter conference and my servant be appointed to
preside over the conference by the voice of it and what he saith to
thee thou shalt tell.
And again thou shalt take thy bro.
between him and thee alone and tell him that those things
which he hath written from that stone are not of me and that satan
deceiveth him for behold these things have not been appointed unto
him neither shall any thing be appointed unto
