Revelation, 6 May 1833 [D&C 93]

that you may come unto the father in my name and in due time receive of his fulness for if you keep my commandments

you shall receive of his fulness and be glorified in me as I am glorified in the father,21

See John 14:13; 17:5, 10.  


therefore I say unto you you shall receive grace for grace22

See John 1:16.  


and now verely I say unto you I was in the begining with the father and am the first born23

While found in several places in the New Testament, the term firstborn is not in any book attributed to John.  


and all those who are begotten through me are partakers of the glory of the same and are the church of the first born,24

See Hebrews 12:23.  


ye were also in the begining with the father that which is Spirit even the spirit of truth and truth is knowledge of things as they are and as they were and as they are to come25

See Book of Mormon, 1830 ed., 130 [Jacob 4:13].  


and whatsoever is more or less than these is the spirit of that wicked one who was a liar from the begining26

See John 8:44.  


the spirit of truth is of God, I am the spirit of truth, and John bear27

Instead of “bear,” the Revelation Book 1 copy has “bore.” (Revelation Book 1, p. 179 [D&C 93:26].)  


reccord of me saying he received a fullness of truth yea even all truth and no man receiveth a fulness unless he keepeth his commandments he that keepeth his commandments receiveth truth and light untill he is glorified in truth and knoweth all things, man was also in the begining with God, inteligence or the Light of truth was not created or made neither indeed can be all truth is independent in that sphere29

The term sphere also appears in several earlier JS documents. (See Old Testament Revision 1, p. 5 [Moses 3:9]; and Answers to Questions, between ca. 4 and ca. 20 Mar. 1832 [D&C 77:3].)  


in which God has placed it— to act for itself as all inteligence also otherwise there is no existance behold here is the agency of man and here is the condemnation of man [p. [3]]
