<​April 7.​> for your religion wont save you, and you will be damned; I do not say how long. There have been remarks made concerning all men being redeemed from Hell; but I say that those who sin against the Holy Ghost cannot be forgiven in this world, or in the world to come; they shall die the second death— those who commit the unpardonable sin are doomed to Guolom— to dwell in Hell worlds without end; as they concoct scenes of bloodshed in this world, so they shall rise to that resurrection which is as the lake of fire and brimstone; some shall rise to the everlasting burning of God— for God dwells in everlasting burnings— and some shall rise to the damnation of their own filthiness— which is as exquisite a torment; as the lake of fire and brimstone.
I have intended my remarks to all: both rich and poor, bond and free, great and small, I have no enmity against any man. I love you all, but I hate some of your deeds I am your best friend, and if persons miss their mark, it is their own fault. If I reprove a man, and he hates me, he is a fool, for I love all men, especially those my brethren and Sisters. I rejoice in hearing the testimony of my aged friends. You don’t know me— you never knew my heart; no man knows my history; I cannot tell it— I shall never undertake it. I don’t blame any one for not believing my history; if I had not experienced what I have I could not have believed it myself. I never did harm any man since I was born into the world. My voice is always for peace. I cannot lie down until all my work is finished. I never think any evil, nor do any thing to the harm of my fellow man. When I am called by the trump of the Archangel, and weighed in the Balance, you will all know me then. I add no more. God bless you all. Amen. [HC 6:317]
