At Boise, Idaho

I your Savior and Redeemer do now say unto you that ye have been brought together not by accident, but ye have been carefully brought together by My Spirit.
And the common ground was My church, the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, and ye were brought together by no other church or organization.
And thus ye were brought together and yet ye now know that My church hath been corrupted greatly by the Gentile nations which are now prominent in its government.
And because of this ye now are no longer in association with it, and because of the false prophets that are now at its head, ye who are the true prophets are therefore cast out.
So, it is now that I have called thee to re-establish these elements that My servant Joseph Smith set up, and which the members of My church have since rejected and abandoned.
For this reason ye have successfully set up My School and My United Order, and ye shall not say that it is not set up, for it is set up according to My will.
Yet there are those in this work who still follow after other paths, and say that it is because of these other paths that they are in this work.
Behold, I say unto you that these other paths did not bring them into this work, for error cannot attract truth.
For these other paths, if not abandoned, shall surely take the truth from you and ye shall lose the truth that ye have.
10 For if ye had stayed in My Church and been faithful to its leadership would ye now then be enlisted in this work? I say unto you, nay! For ye would be in like darkness as they are.
11 And in like manner if ye leave not totally the other paths which were even in grosser error, confusion shall reign in your minds, and ye will forget your goal, even the building up of My Zion upon the earth.
12 And the truth that ye now know and embrace will flee from you like the morning mist from the rising sun.
13 Therefore, ye shall leave the other paths, no matter how appealing they appear to be, for these are the paths that are forbidden, which can deceive even Mine elect, and which cause ye to deviate from the Iron Rod, which is My word.
Even so, Amen.
