A Revelation given to Hyrum, in Harmony, Pennsylvania, May, 1829.
- A great and marvelous work is about to come forth among the children
of men: behold I am God and give heed to my word, which is quick and
powerful, sharper than a two-edged sword, to the dividing asunder of
both joints and marrow: therefore, give heed unto my word.
- Behold the field is white already to harvest, therefore, whoso desireth
to reap, let him thrust in his sickle with his might, and reap while
the day lasts, that he may treasure up for his soul everlasting salvation
in the kingdom of God; yea, whosoever will thrust in his sickle and
reap, the same is called of God: therefore, if you will ask of me, you
shall receive; if you will knock, it shall be opened unto you.
- Now as you have asked, behold I say unto you, keep my commandments,
and seek to bring forth and establish the cause of Zion. Seek not for
riches but for wisdom, and behold the mysteries of God shall be unfolded
unto you, and then shall you be made rich; behold he that hath eternal
life is rich.
- Verily, verily I say unto you, even as you desire of me, so shall
it be done unto you; and, if you desire you shall be the means of doing
much good in this generation. Say nothing but repentance unto this generation.
Keep my commandments, and assist to bring forth my work according to
my commandments, and you shall be blessed.
- Behold thou hast a gift, or thou shalt have a gift, if thou wilt desire
of me in faith, with an honest heart, believing in the power of Jesus
Christ, or in my power which speaketh unto thee: for behold it is I
that speaketh: behold I am the light which shineth in darkness, and
by my power I give these words unto thee.
- And now, verily, verily I say unto thee, put your trust in that Spirit
which leadeth to do good: Yea, to do justly; to walk humbly; to judge
righteously; and this is my Spirit.
- Verily, verily I say unto you, I will impart unto you of my Spirit,
which shall enlighten your mind, which shall fill your soul with joy,
and then shall you know, or by this shall you know, all things whatsoever
you desire of me, which is pertaining unto things of righteousness,
in faith believing in me that you shall receive.
- Behold I command you, that you need not suppose that you are called
to preach until you are called: wait a little longer, until you shall
have my word, my Rock, my church, and my gospel, that you may know of
a surety my doctrine; and then behold, according to your desires, yea,
even according to your faith, shall it be done unto you.
- Keep my commandments; hold your peace; appeal unto my Spirit: Yea,
cleave unto me with all your heart, that you may assist in bringing
to light those things of which have been spoken: Yea, the translation
of my work: be patient until you shall accomplish it.
- Behold this is your work, to keep my commandments: Yea, with all your
might, mind, and strength: seek not to declare my word, but first seek
to obtain my word, and then shall your tongues be loosed; then, if you
desire you shall have my Spirit, and my word: Yea, the power of God
unto the convincing of men: but now hold your peace; study my word which
hath gone forth among the children of men; and also study my word which
shall come forth among the children of men; or that which you are translating:
Yea, until you have obtained all which I shall grant unto the children
of men in this generation; and then shall all things be added thereunto.
- Behold thou art Hyrum, my son; seek the kingdom of God and all things
shall be added according to that which is just. Build upon my Rock,
which is my gospel; deny not the [S]pirit of revelation, nor the Spirit
of prophecy, for wo unto him that denieth these things: therefore, treasure
up in your hearts until the time which is in my wisdom, that you shall
go forth: Behold I speak unto all who have good desires, and have thrust
in their sickles to reap.
- Behold I am Jesus Christ, the Son of God: I am the life and the light
of the world: I am the same which came unto my own, and my own received
me not: but verily, verily I say unto you, that as many as receiveth
me, them will I give power to become the sons of God, even to them that
believe on my name: Amen.
