The Word of The Lord
(Brought to mankind by an Angel)
The Messenger of the Lord appeared to me in the home of Brother and Sister Edward Lee Stone, 904 South Haden,
Independence, Missouri, at 3:05 a.m., August 23, 1960. He left at 4:00 a.m.
1 “Behold! Arise and write the message I will give you. I am your fellow servant—the Messenger of the Lord. I
come at his appointing. I am sent from God and I bring a message of light, that the standard may be
completely set and the words of the prophecies be fulfilled.
2 Continue to let humility be your mantle and speak in the way of the Lord.
3 This is a great work and greater things shall come to pass. Much will happen to try the faith of all. Be not
discouraged, be not troubled. Live in peace and keep the Spirit of God among you.
4 Let all that can be in the field.
5 Let the quorums counsel together and keep peace in the office where many come and go. Let the quorums
6 Let Savage remember the greatness of his calling and shrink not from his duty, but be at peace and full of
love and encouragement. All have their place and calling, let him remain in the office.
7 The Lord’s Spirit has been in your midst. Keep it in your hearts and minds that peace will go with you
wherever you go.
8 Let those come in by the door whom the Lord has touched by his Spirit. Let them be humble, teaching the
truth as it is written and the words I bring.
9 Let there be added to the bishops—Clyde G. Clary.
10 Let there be added to the evangelists: W. E. Baughman, Dean T. Corbin, Clay W. England; and to the elders:
Lloyd B. Winans, Donald Harsch, Oscar Nicholson—and when these come in this work: Ed Bowers, Albert E.
Fassel, Arthur B. Smith, Arthur G. Smith, James W. Goff, Gerald L. Goff, John P. Goff, and Joseph E. Goff.
11 If these men will be humble and prepare, holding high the banner of truth—the full standard, they shall be
blessed in very deed. Great good will come of their works. They shall cause many to learn the truth, the
assured way of the Lord.
12 Long the Lord accepts the first day of the week to gather and worship in respect to the resurrection. Let your
minds be holy at all times. Be in humility that the Lord will hear your prayers.
13 Thus saith the Lord, ‘I give my commandments to those that name my name to serve me and I know their
covenant. I speak to those of the Church of Christ and to all that will become my bride, my people. To the
apostles I give their charge in all the world. Be not slothful in your calling, for this I require of you. Be obedient.’
14 I leave peace with you and will come again. Amen.”
