CALLINGS FOR SEVERAL ELDERS
Revelation Received in March 1832
By the Prophet Joseph (D&C 79, 80, 81)
Verily I say unto you, that it is My will that My servant Jared Carter should go again into the eastern countries, from place to place, and from city to city, in the power of the ordination wherewith he has been ordained, proclaiming glad tidings of great joy, even the everlasting gospel.
And I will send upon him the Comforter, which shall teach him the truth and the way whither he shall go;
And inasmuch as he is faithful, I will crown him again with sheaves.
Wherefore, let your heart be glad, My servant Jared Carter, and fear not, saith your LORD, even Jesus Christ. Amen.
Verily, thus saith the LORD unto you My servant Stephen Burnett: Go ye, go ye into the world and preach the gospel to every creature that cometh under the sound of your voice.
And inasmuch as you desire a companion, I will give unto you My servant Eden Smith.
Wherefore, go ye and preach My gospel, whether to the north or to the south, to the east or to the west, it mattereth not, for ye cannot go amiss.
Therefore, declare the things which ye have heard, and verily believe, and know to be true.
Behold, this is the will of Him who hath called you, your Redeemer, even Jesus Christ. Amen.
Verily, verily I say unto you, My servant Frederick G. Williams: Listen to the voice of Him who speaketh, to the word of the Lord your God, and hearken to the calling wherewith you are called, even to be a high priest in My church, and a counselor unto My servant Joseph Smith, Jr.;
Unto whom I have given the keys of the kingdom, which belong always unto the Presidency of the High Priesthood:
Therefore, verily I acknowledge him and will bless him, and also thee, inasmuch as thou art faithful in counsel, in the office which I have appointed unto you, in prayer always, vocally and in thy heart, in public and in private, also in thy ministry in proclaiming the gospel in the land of the living, and among thy brethren.
And in doing these things thou wilt do the greatest good unto thy fellow beings, and wilt promote the glory of Him who is your LORD.
Wherefore, be faithful; stand in the office which I have appointed unto you; succor the weak, lift up the hands which hang down, and strengthen the feeble knees.
And if thou art faithful unto the end thou shalt have a crown of immortality, and Eternal Life in the mansions which I have prepared in the house of My Father.
