Revelation received January 25, 1983
At Cardston, Alberta, Canada
Behold My son, I am Alpha and Omega, even the Beginning and the End, even the voice of Jehovah, for I speak unto thee with a still small voice and say unto you, I did give unto My servant Joseph Smith Jr. authority to set up the Church of Jesus Christ for the latter days on April 6, 1830-- and this by My voice and by My authority and by My servant whom I did appoint according to My word, and it is Mine saith the LORD.
And all who rebel against it and esteem it as naught shall repent or be destroyed.
For they do ignore My word concerning it and if they mock it they mock Me and if they say, "It cannot be redeemed or cleansed", they do err in doctrine and judgment and are in need of repentance, for they ignore the prophets I have sent.
For did not I speak through My servant Joseph saying that I would cleanse it and restore it to its pure state?
For I knew that wicked men would pollute it.
But I will stretch forth Mine arm at the time appointed and shall cause it to be cleansed, for the vessel is yet sound, but the contents are putrid before My face.
And did I not speak unto My servant John Koyle in visions, and did I not send unto him My servant Joseph Smith and instruct him in the manner it would be cleansed?
Have I not instructed My Servant in the Parable of the Pear Tree that My Church will be cleansed, and the tree pruned and gouged and dunged and cultivated by those whom I will send?
And those wicked men who deceive all the nations shall be exposed before all men.
Behold I say unto you, these things shall surely happen and none shall stay My hand, for one shall surely do this as I have promised.
And all those who ridicule My Servant in this matter saying that this is an impossible thing, shall see their folly and be chastised.

For what I the LORD have set up, let no man tear asunder, for if I will that My church be established it shall be done, and if I will that My church be destroyed it shall be done, for the Church is Mine saith the LORD.
Even so, Amen.
