Transcription:

Commandment to the Church AD 1830
Saying listen to the voice of Jesus Christ your Lord your God
[& your Redeemer whose word is q]uick & powerful for behold I say
unto you that it mattereth not what ye [shall eat or] what ye shal[l]
drink when ye partake of the sacrament if it so be that y[e do it]
with an eye single to my glory remembering unto the Fathe[r my]
body which is laid down for you & my blood which was shed for [the]
remission of your sins wherefore a commandment I give unto you
that ye shall not purchase wine niether strong drink of your enemies wherefore
ye shall partake of none except it is made new among you yea in
this my Fahters kingdom which shall be built up on the earth
behold this is wisdom in me wherefore marvel not for the
hour cometh that I will drink of the fruit of the vine w[ith]
you on the earth & with all those whom my Father
hath given me out of the world wherefore lift up your
hearts & rejoice & gird up your loins & be faithful untill
[I come even so amen]
