Yea, the word of the Lord concerning his church,
established in the last days for the restoration of his people,

And verily I say unto you, the rest of my servants, go ye forth as your circumstances

But behold, in the last days, even now while the Lord is beginning to bring forth the word,
and the blade is springing up and is yet tender.

and forewarn you, by giving unto you this word of wisdom by revelation.
And from this place they may bear exceedingly great and glorious tidings, in truth,
unto the ends of the earth, that they may know that this is thy work, and that thou hast
put forth thy hand, to fulfill that which thou hast spoken by the mouths of the prophets,
concerning the last days.
We know that thou hast spoken by the mouth of thy prophets terrible things

For unto you, the Twelve, and those, the First Presidency, who are appointed with you
to be your counselors and your leaders, is the power of this priesthood given,
for the last days and for the last time, in the which is the dispensation of the fullness of times,
31 Which power you hold, in connection with all those who have received a dispensation at any time from the beginning of the creation;
32 For verily I say unto you, the keys of the dispensation, which ye have received, have come down from the fathers, and last of all, being sent down from heaven unto you.
33 Verily I say unto you, behold how great is your calling. Cleanse your hearts and your garments, lest the blood of this generation be required at your hands.
34 Be faithful until I come, for I come quickly; and my reward is with me to recompense every man according as his work shall be. I am Alpha and Omega. Amen.

also to return to that power which she had lost.
For thus shall my church be called in the last days,
even The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter day Saints.

in the last days, to save my people Israel.
