John Murdock - Go preach in the eastern countries 
AbsurdityProphecy Injustice 99:1-8

1 Behold, thus saith the Lord unto my servant John Murdock - thou art called to go into the eastern countries from house to house, 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.

This is what the Lord says to John Murdock.

Go preach in the eastern countries. [1]

2 And who receiveth you receiveth me; and you shall have power to declare my word in the demonstration of my Holy Spirit.

 

3 And who receiveth you as a little child, receiveth my kingdom; and blessed are they, for they shall obtain mercy.

 

4 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.

My father will reject whoever rejects you.

When this happens, wash your feet in the secret places.

5 And behold, and lo, I come quickly to judgment, to convince all of their ungodly deeds which they have committed against me, as it is written of me in the volume of the book.

Behold, I come quickly to pay them back for all their ungodly deeds against me (as is written in the book). [2]

6 And now, verily I say unto you, that it is not expedient that you should go until your children are provided for, and sent up kindly unto the bishop of Zion.

But don't go until your children are provided for.

7 And after a few years, if thou desirest of me, thou mayest go up also unto the goodly land, to possess thine inheritance;

If after a few years, you may go to the goodly land to possess your inheritance. [3]

8 Otherwise thou shalt continue proclaiming my gospel until thou be taken. Amen.

Otherwise, just keep preaching until you die. Amen.
