Revelation, 29 August 1832 [D&C 99]

Revelation given Hiram Portage County August 29. 1832 Behold thus saith the Lord unto you my servant John (Murdock) thou art called to go unto the eastern countries from house to house and from Village to Village and from City to City to proclaim mine everlasting gospel unto the inhabitants thereof in the midst of persecution and wickedness and whosoever receiveth you receiveth me and you shall have power to declare my word in the demmonstration of my Holy Spirit and whoso receiveth you as a little child receiveth my kingdom and blessed are they for they shall obtain mercy and whoso rejecteth you shall be rejected of my father and his house and you shall cleanse your feet in the secret places by the way for a testimony against them. And behold, <and> Lo I come quickly to Judgement to convin[c]e all of their ungodly deeds which they have committed against me as it is written of me in the volume of the Book. And now verily I say unto you that it is not expedient that you should go untill your children are provided <for> and kindly sent up unto the bishop in Zion and after a few years if thou desirest of me thou mayest go up also unto the goodly land to possess thine inheritanc[e] otherwise thou shalt continue proclaiming my Gospel until thou be taken Amen. [p. 148]
