Revelation to Joseph Smith, Fayette, New York, September 1830
Listen to the voice of Jesus, the great I am
Listen to the voice of Jesus Christ, your Redeemer, the Great I Am, whose arm of mercy hath atoned for your sins;
Who will gather his people even as a hen gathereth her chickens under her wings, even as many as will hearken to my
voice and humble themselves before me, and call upon me in mighty prayer.
Behold, verily, verily, I say unto you, that at this time your sins are forgiven you, therefore ye receive these things;
but remember to sin no more, lest perils shall come upon you.
Verily, I say unto you that ye are chosen out of the world to declare my gospel with the sound of rejoicing, as with the
voice of a trump.
Lift up your hearts and be glad, for I am in your midst, and am your advocate with the Father; and it is his good will to give
you the kingdom.
And, as it is written - Whatsoever ye shall ask in faith, being united in prayer according to my command, ye shall receive.
And ye are called to bring to pass the gathering of mine elect; for mine elect hear my voice and harden not their hearts;
Wherefore the decree hath gone forth from the Father that they shall be gathered in unto one place upon the face of this land,
to prepare their hearts and be prepared in all things against the day when tribulation and desolation are sent forth upon the
Listen to the voice of Jesus, the great I am.
God will send flies and maggots to eat the wicked
For the hour is nigh and the day soon at hand when the earth is ripe; and all the proud and
they that do wickedly shall be as stubble; and I will burn them up, saith the Lord of Hosts, that wickedness shall not be upon the earth;
For the hour is nigh, and that which was spoken by mine apostles must be fulfilled; for as they spoke so shall it come to pass;
Soon I [Jesus] will burn all the wicked people.
For I will reveal myself from heaven with power and great glory, with all the hosts thereof,
and dwell in righteousness
with men on earth a thousand years, and the wicked shall not stand.
And again, verily, verily, I say unto you, and it hath gone forth in a firm decree, by the will of the Father,
that mine apostles, the Twelve which were with me in my ministry at Jerusalem, shall stand at my right hand at
the day of my coming in a pillar of fire, being clothed with robes of righteousness, with crowns upon their heads,
in glory even as I am, to judge the whole house of Israel, even as many as have loved me and kept my commandments,
and none else.
Then I'll reveal myself
and dwell on earth for a thousand years.
For a trump shall sound both long and loud, even as upon Mount Sinai, and all the earth
shall quake, and they shall ccome
forth - yea, even the dead which died in me, to receive a crown of righteousness, and to be clothed upon, even as I am,
to be with me, that we may be one.
After that, a trumpet will sound, the earth will quake, and dead bodies will come alive.
But, behold, I say unto you that before this great day shall come the sun shall be darkened, and the moon shall be turned
into blood, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and there shall be greater signs in heaven above and in the earth beneath;
But before any of that happens, the sun will darken, the moon will turn into blood, and stars will fall.
And there shall be weeping and wailing among the hosts of men;
And there'll be weeping and wailing,
And there shall be a great hailstorm sent forth to destroy the crops of the earth.
with great hailstorms that will destroy crops.
And it shall come to pass, because of the wickedness of the world, that I will take vengeance upon the wicked,
for they will not repent; for the cup of mine indignation is full; for behold, my blood shall not cleanse them if they hear me not.
And I'll take vengeance on the wicked.
Wherefore, I the Lord God will send forth flies upon the face of the earth, which
shall take hold of the inhabitants
thereof, and shall eat their flesh, and shall cause maggots to come in upon them;
Then I, God, will send flies and maggots to eat their flesh.
And their tongues shall be stayed that they shall not utter against me;
and their flesh shall fall from off their bones, and their eyes from their sockets;
Their flesh will fall from their bones
and their eyes from their sockets.
And it shall come to pass that the beasts of the forest and the fowls of the air shall devour them up.
Then the birds and beasts will eat them.
The great and abominable church will burn
And the great and abominable church, which is the whore of all the earth, shall be cast down by devouring fire, according
as it is spoken by the mouth of Ezekiel the prophet, who spoke of these things, which have not come to pass but surely must,
as I live, for abominations shall not reign.
And the great and abominable church, the whore of all the earth, will be burned. 
All the dead people will come forth
And again, verily, verily, I say unto you that when the thousand years are ended, and men again begin to deny their God,
then will I spare the earth but for a little season;
When the thousand years are over, and people begin to deny God, I'll spare the earth for a while.
And the end shall come, and the heaven and the earth shall be consumed and pass away, and there shall be
a new heaven and a new earth.
For all old things shall pass away, and all things shall become new, even the heaven and the earth, and all
the fulness thereof, both men and beasts, the fowls of the air, and the fishes of the sea;
Then the end will come, heaven and earth will be destroyed, and there'll be a new heaven and earth.
And not one hair, neither mote, shall be lost, for it is the workmanship of mine hand.
But not a hair or a mote will be lost, because I made them.
But, behold, verily I say unto you, before the earth shall pass away, Michael, mine archangel, shall sound his
trump, and then shall all the dead awake, for their graves shall be opened, and they shall come forth - yea, even all.
Before the earth is destroyed, Michael my archangel will blow his trumpet, and all the dead people will come forth.
And the righteous shall be gathered on my right hand unto eternal life;
and the wicked on my left hand will I be ashamed to own before the Father;
The righteous dead will be on my right side,
and the wicked on my left.
Wherefore I will say unto them - Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels.
And now, behold, I say unto you, never at any time have I declared from mine own mouth that they should return,
for where I am they cannot come, for they have no power.
But remember that all my judgments are not given unto men; and as the words have gone forth out of my mouth even so
shall they be fulfilled, that the first shall be last, and that the last shall be first in all things whatsoever
I have created by the word of my power, which is the power of my Spirit.
For by the power of my Spirit created I them; yea, all things both spiritual and temporal -
First spiritual, secondly temporal, which is the beginning of my work; and again, first temporal, and secondly spiritual,
which is the last of my work -
Speaking unto you that you may naturally understand; but unto myself my works have no end, neither beginning; but it
is given unto you that ye may understand, because ye have asked it of me and are agreed.
Wherefore, verily I say unto you that all things unto me are spiritual, and not at any time have I given unto you a
law which was temporal; neither any man, nor the children of men; neither Adam, your father, whom I created.
Behold, I gave unto him that he should be an agent unto himself; and I gave unto him commandment, but no temporal commandment
gave I unto him, for my commandments are spiritual; they are not natural nor temporal, neither carnal nor sensual.
And I'll say,
Go you cursed people to burn forever in the fire.
Those who don't believe will be damned
And it came to pass that Adam, being tempted of the devil - for, behold, the devil was before Adam,
for he rebelled against me, saying, Give me thine honor, which is my power; and also a third part of the ghosts of heaven turned he away from me
because of their agency;
The devil existed before Adam and rebelled against me,
along with one-third of the heavenly ghosts.
And they were thrust down, and thus came the devil and his angels;
And, behold, there is a place prepared for them from the beginning, which place is hell.
And they were thrust down to hell.
And it must needs be that the devil should tempt the children of men, or they could not be agents unto themselves;
for if they never should have bitter they could not know the sweet -
The devil had to tempt people or they couldn't be free.
If you can't taste the bitter things, you can't taste the sweet.
Wherefore, it came to pass that the devil tempted Adam, and he partook of the forbidden fruit and transgressed the
commandment, wherein he became subject to the will of the devil, because he yielded unto temptation.
Wherefore, I, the Lord God, caused that he should be cast out from the Garden of Eden, from my presence, because of
his transgression, wherein he became spiritually dead, which is the first death, even that same death which is the
last death, which is spiritual, which shall be pronounced upon the wicked when I shall say: Depart, ye cursed.
42 But, behold, I say unto you that I, the Lord God, gave unto Adam and unto his seed, that they should not die as to the
temporal death, until I, the Lord God, should send forth angels to declare unto them repentance and redemption, through
faith on the name of mine Only Begotten Son.
And thus did I, the Lord God, appoint unto man the days of his probation - that by his natural death he might be
raised in immortality unto eternal life, even as many as would believe;
So the devil tempted Adam, Adam ate the forbidden fruit, and became subject to the will of the devil.
And they that believe not unto eternal damnation; for they cannot be redeemed from their spiritual fall, because
they repent not;
Those who don't believe will be damned,
For they love darkness rather than light, and their deeds are evil, and
they receive their wages of whom they list to obey.
because they obey the devil and do evil things.
But behold, I say unto you, that little children are redeemed from the foundation of the world
through mine Only Begotten;
Except for little children.
They are all redeemed by my only begotten.
Wherefore, they cannot sin, for power is not given unto Satan to tempt little children, until they begin to
become accountable before me;
For it is given unto them even as I will, according to mine own pleasure, that great things may be required at the
hand of their fathers.
And, again, I say unto you, that whoso having knowledge, have I not commanded to repent?
Because I haven't given power to Satan to tempt them yet.
And he that hath no understanding, it remaineth in me to do according as it is written. And now
I declare no more unto you at this time. Amen.
And that's all I have to say about that.

This church was understood by all Mormons to the the Roman Catholic church - until recently. Now the LDS church just
isn't sure who God is talking about here.
