The Word of The Lord
(Brought to mankind by an Angel)
The Messenger of the Lord came to me at my home, 122 W. Sea Avenue, Independence, Missouri, about 1:30 a.m., June 7,
1944. He was engulfed in light such as I assume the resurrected are privileged to bear. He left the following message:
1 “Behold, I come again with a message of peace. Give it to the brethren and the Church.
2 Verily, the Lord has heard the prayers of the faithful who have cried from the heart; therefore he has and will
bless all that do his will. Let all be calm and sedate in the Lord; not boastful nor wise in their own conceit.
Remember, love is your mission, to preach and teach repentance with faith in God that salvation may come to
all who will hear and obey the word of the Lord.
3 I am the Messenger of the Lord. I am sent to do his will. I bring his words that mankind may know his way.
Let all take courage for the faithful shall not be confounded, but encouraged in the Lord, for life cometh to the
righteous in love.
4 Let there be added to the apostles: E. H. Ewing and W. F. Lewis. Let them be set apart that they may take
their place for the Lord will point the way of the humble. Let the apostles and bishops counsel together much
and pray always that they may be guided in the Lord’s will.
5 Let there be added to the bishops: R. C. Moss and Newell Mead. Let them know this is a great responsibility
to carry. Teach all to be dutiful in wisdom before God that their humility may be accepted by both man and God.
6 Let Charles B. Hatch be set apart as an elder. Let him take the message to others and the Lord will bless
him. Let Thomas Evanson prepare for his greater calling for the Lord will bless him. Let all continue to carry on
and the Lord will not forsake his people.
7 Let the Voice of Peace go on to the ends of the earth that mercy and justice may be found by those who will
search. Be pleasant. Let your light shine. As the Lord speaks answer by your actions.
8 I speak the will of him that sent me. I am John the Baptist, the servant of the Lord. Peace I leave with you and
the Church. I will come again as the Lord will direct. Amen.”
