What more shall I say? Brethren, if you will give heed to these things, simple as they are, you shall be greatly blessed; and shall grow wise day by day; you shall become great and honourable among the sons of God; and shall be enabled to solve the deep things of God, and to understand the great principles by which worlds are governed and made to perform their revolutions around their great centre, even KOLOB. You shall have health of the body, and vigour of mind; and shall have power to overcome every evil, and to keep yourselves pure before God; and in the resurrection you shall rise pure and holy, and receive immortal lives. You shall live and reign with Christ on the earth for a thousand years, during which time you shall be instructed by those who have been in the society of the Gods, even the Prophets and Patriarchs of old, and by Christ himself. And then you will be prepared for greater works than ever have been performed on this earth. Your kingdoms and dominions will be like that of Christ's, progressive, eternal, and never ending.
