A Revelation to Joseph, and Sidney, given in Fayette, New- York, January, 1831, explaining why James (C.,) obeyed not the revelation which was given unto him.

  1. Behold, verily, verily I say unto you, that his heart was right before me, for he covenanted with me, that he would obey my word.
  2. And he received the word with gladness, but straitway satan tempted him; and the fear of persecution, and the cares of the world, caused him to reject the word:
  3. Wherefore he broke my covenant, and it remaineth in me to do with him as seemeth good. Amen.
