Revelation through Joseph Smith to Orson Pratt
Fayette, New York, November 4, 1830
Jesus: I come quickly, Orson
My son Orson, hearken and hear and behold what I, the Lord God, shall say unto you, even Jesus Christ your Redeemer;
The light and the life of the world, a light which shineth in darkness and the darkness comprehendeth it not;
Who so loved the world that he gave his own life, that as many as would believe might become the sons of God. Wherefore
you are my son;
This is what Jesus has to say to you, Orson [Pratt].
And blessed are you because you have believed;
You are blessed because you believe.
And more blessed are you because you are called of me to preach my gospel -
And even more blessed because I'm telling you to preach
To lift up your voice as with the sound of a trump, both long and loud, and cry repentance unto a crooked and perverse
generation, preparing the way of the Lord for his second coming.
to this perverse and crooked generation.
For behold, verily, verily, I say unto you, the time is soon at hand that I shall come
in a cloud with power and great glory.
I'll soon be coming in a cloud.
And it shall be a great day at the time of my coming, for all nations shall tremble.
But before that great day shall come, the sun shall be darkened, and the moon be turned into blood; and the stars shall
refuse their shining, and some shall fall, and great destructions await the wicked.
Wherefore, lift up your voice and spare not, for the Lord God hath spoken; therefore prophesy, and it shall
be given by the power of the Holy Ghost.
But before I come, the sun will darken, the moon will turn into blood, the stars won't shine, and some of them will fall.
And the wicked will be destroyed.
And if you are faithful, behold, I am with you until I come -
If you are faithful, I'll be with you until I come.
And verily, verily, I say unto you, I come quickly. I am your Lord and your Redeemer. Even so.
And I come quickly. Amen.
