The Word of The Lord
(Brought to mankind by an Angel)
The angel Messenger of the Lord, the resurrected John the Baptist, appeared to me at my home, Independence, Missouri,
August 20, 1947, at 11:42 p.m., and gave the following message. The light which has always accompanied the Messenger
filled the room. (Matthew 24:45, Luke 12:42, 43) He left at 12:30.
1 “Arise and write the message I will give you. I am the Messenger of the Lord, his servant, sent to bring a
warning, a cleansing, and to prepare a people to be the Lord’s bride when he comes.
2 I speak as from a fountain of truth and with power and authority. I bring the authority for mankind to represent
Christ and his Church; therefore remember this is a holy work and must be kept holy.
3 Moreover the Lord has heard the prayers of this assembly and has answered peace—herein is your joy in
obedience and in humility: for joy comes by obedience and peace in much assurance.
4 Let the assured way of the Lord be your way—for I bring peace and a way of deliverance. I speak the Lord’s
words—for his ways are just. I proclaim the midnight cry. I bring peace—let it remain among you—in your
gatherings and in your homes.
5 Let all be in the field as the way opens. Let all speak and teach the same things. Heed diligently and it will be
well with the faithful and to all who obey and defend this cause.
6 Counsel together with your brethren and qualify to lead the people in peace and righteousness. Hold high
the banner of truth in the words I bring.
7 Send the message and warnings to the ends of the earth and to all nations. Print the messages in other
8 Let those with the responsibility of preaching and teaching of the gospel in all the world consider deeply their
calling and choosing in this work, for the work is great that lies before you.
9 Let all watch and pray, for the trials will come to all. Mankind must come all the way.
10 The Lord has been and will be with his people by his Spirit, and his peace shall long linger with the faithful
until they become the jewels of God.
11 Fear not, for the end cometh and all must be judged—may your faith bring you to God-ward for then all shall
see him at his appearing.
12 Give this message to the Church, to your brethren and then to all.
13 Fear not man—nor their evil ways—do the Lord’s will.
14 I will come again.”
