A Revelation to Joseph, and Sidney, given in Kirtland, Ohio, February,
- Behold thus saith the Lord unto you my servants, it is expedient
in me that the elders of my church should be called together, from the
east and from the west, and from the north and from the south, by letter
or some other way.
- And it shall come to pass, that, inasmuch as they are faithful, and
exercise faith in me, I will pour out my Spirit upon them in the day
that they assemble themselves together.
- And it shall come to pass that they shall go forth into the regions
round about, and preach repentance unto the people;
- And many shall be converted, insomuch that ye shall obtain power to
organize yourselves, according to the laws of man;
- That your enemies may not have power over you, that you may be preserved
in all things;
- That you may be enabled to keep my laws, that every band may be broken
wherewith the enemy seeketh to destroy my people.
- Behold I say unto you, that ye must visit the poor and the needy and
administer to their relief, that they may be kept until all things may
be done according to my law which ye have received: Amen.
