2nd Book of Commandments 17

Revelation received August 25, 1963
At Price, Utah

Behold I say unto you, now is the time that false gods will abound in the earth, and false prophets will be raised up in multitudes to deceive and confuse the people.
Be not deceived, for I have not rejected My church, but many of those who call themselves leaders of My church I have already rejected, even that they no longer have their authority, and have lost even what they had through iniquity.
Behold, I command the leaders of My church to repent of their sins, for they esteem the glory of the world of more worth than My glory, and seek the praise of men for their good works rather than humble themselves before Me and seek My counsel.
They praise not Me for their gifts and talents and riches, but think that by their own works they have achieved these treasures.
Behold I say unto you, that unless they repent they shall be less than dross, for their gifts shall be returned unto Him who gave them, their talents shall deteriorate and their riches shall melt away; and then shall the dog return to his vomit, and the end shall be worse than the first, and their end from their beginning.
Behold, ye have My witness, ye have My law, ye have the means of determining right from wrong, ye have the keys to determine truth from error, ye are left without excuse.
Even so, Amen.
