Received by Seventy Nolan W. Glauner

This revelation was given the day before Robert MacDonald and Nolan Glauner met and drove to Far West then proceeded fifteen miles due north of Far West in search of the Littlefield farm which was called the, “halfway house”, by Joseph Smith Junior.  Joseph and a survey party traveled to this location on 1 September 1838  to lay out one of the cities of Zion. It was located half-way between Far West and Adam-Ondi-Ahman. 

Hear O-Israel, the words of the Lord your God.  The Lord is one God.  You shall have no other gods before me.  I am a jealous God and your Creator who has patiently awaited your return unto me.  I have prepared the way before you all the day long  and you have wandered out of the pathway and halted in your journey of return.

My promises to your fathers shall all be fulfilled, not because of your righteousness, but for their righteousness saith your Lord.  Call on me in all your wanderings and I will place your feet upon the pathway once more for it is my good will to give unto you the kingdom.  Seek not to find my kingdom in this world.  My kingdom is not of this world, but seek righteousness by obedience to my commandments and I will establish my kingdom in your hearts and minds.  My kingdom comes from above and I will give it to you who dwell upon the earth when you seek it with all your might, mind and strength.

The time for the gathering is drawing nigh. You must be prepared to take part in my eternal plan and purposes.  A people must be prepared to bring to pass the fulfillment of my promises to the fathers. If you will heed my counsel, and refuse to break my commandments you are called to take part in this work.

The cause of Zion is more than a place for my Saints to gather.  Zion is a people who have consecrated their lives to serve me and to bring forth my truth that will lead many people into my kingdom.

All who will heed my words must do all within their power to bring to pass Zion, and if you will ask of me, saith your Lord, I will give you all that you need to bring to pass this work.  It must come through the dedication of my Saints.  Let not the distractions of this world hinder you, for the time is swiftly approaching when the time to work will have passed.  Amen
