The Word of The Lord
(Brought to mankind by an Angel)
The Messenger of the Lord appeared to me in my room while at the home of Brother W. C. Lear, near Dayville, Grant
County, Oregon, December 2, 1941, at 2:30 a.m. The heavenly light that always accompanies the Messenger filled my
room and its presence awoke me. Immediately he appeared and said, “I come with a message.” I arose and wrote the
words as he spoke them, thus:
1 “I come again from the presence of the Lord your God. I am the Messenger of the Covenant and my name is
John. I am sent to bring the message, to prepare the way. I come not of myself but the Lord God has sent me
with the warning that the hour of his judgment is on and his coming near. This is the closing time, a time of
haste. I bring a warning, and that the restitution of all things might be.
2 I come from the presence of the Lord. I am the Elias which was for to come. I am the man sent from God. I
am he that cried repentance in the wilderness. I am the Messenger spoken of by the prophets of old. I am John
the Baptist. My message is one of love to all people and nations, color or race.
3 Give ear, Oh ye people of the earth. Hear the warning today. I speak the words and will of the Lord. Let all
have faith. Turn to the Lord and obey his commands. Heed repentance and baptism that the way of the Lord
shall be among men; his Kingdom shall fill the whole earth. The hands must be laid upon all that the greater
light might come to them.
4 Again the poor have the gospel preached to them. I come with a message of life—heed ye the written word;
let not man speak his way for his heart is full of selfishness.
5 God has decreed his plan and it shall be fulfilled. Israel shall come forth rejoicing from their dispersion and
hiding place, for this gospel shall be preached in all the earth then shall the end come.
6 The turmoil is on. The greatest peril shall fill its place and mankind will inquire of the Lord their God. Their
idols shall melt away; for the law shall go forth from Zion, cleansing the hearts of men. They shall stand before,
being ministered unto for I come to give light, to instruct, to call, and to point the way.
7 Moreover, the word of the Lord shall be fulfilled and even John shall prophesy unto many nations, kindreds,
tongues and peoples; even now he is and was and yet is among men. The day cometh when the greater
power shall be among men, given of God. Yea even as it were Elijah they shall stand forth, for, for this cause
the Lord saith, ‘I am their God.’
8 The great work is to be among men. None are lost to the Father—he knoweth them all. They that are of peace
shall stand forth.
9 All that sin and do iniquity shall be cut off lest they repent ere it is too late and they be taken to the beyonds in
their filth. For the consummation is proclaimed and the indignation is on. The gates have been opened that
deliverance will come to all who will heed and obey; for the warning is to the ends of the earth, upon the north
sides and the indwelling, and a new language shall come forth.
10 Yea, I have brought a warning and few prepare for the greater light, but be thou faithful even all who hear, for
the Lord’s will shall be fulfilled in all things. All have their work to do and the day comes when the Lord shall
breathe upon the chosen and they shall do his work in mighty power for their love toward the brethren. All that
offend and that do not keep his commandments shall not be his in the last day. Moreover, it is Christ’s words
that shall judge all men.
11 Those that prepare for it shall have the gift to cast out devils, and to proclaim the mysteries of the Kingdom;
for this is the authority of the Son of God.
12 Let all obey the pattern given. Let all be humble and prepare themselves that the greater light may come to
13 Let W. C. Lear, Elmer Hitchcock, J. L. Weins, and David S. Smith be set apart as elders. Let them take up
their work preaching and teaching for the Lord will bless their work as they proclaim the doctrine of life.
14 Let R. A. Rieger be added to the quorum of bishops that the quorum might be filled. Let him work in
harmony, for the stewardship is of the Lord, and all must give an account of their work at the judgment. Let the
bishops reason together. Let the twelve and bishops counsel together much that the Spirit of God may remain
15 There are those the Lord is pleased with their efforts, let them continue.
16 There are those that defend this cause. Greater light and understanding shall be given them, for I bring
peace of the Lord.
17 Be at peace with all men, let love fill your hearts.
18 Send this to the brethren, the Church. Let it go to all mankind, I speak the Lord’s words. I come to you at this
time and at this home. I have come in the past and will come again. Amen.”
