Statement Regarding Israel Dammon



Previously unpublished.

He reports that I saw him, Brother Reed and several others, crowned in the kingdom of God. And afterward I saw him lost. 3LtMs, Ms 7, 1876, par. 1

This is not correct. 3LtMs, Ms 7, 1876, par. 2

I was shown the travels of those who were looking for the second appearing of our Saviour. I was shown their trials. They were represented to me as walking upon a high, narrow path, distinct and separated from the world, who were traveling the broad road. I saw that those who traveled the narrow pathway were in continual danger of falling. Crowns were laid up in heaven for them. If they traveled on to the end of the narrow path, they would receive the finishing touch of immortality and have the crowns and an eternal weight of glory. If unfaithful, their punishment would be measured according to the privileges and light they had received. 3LtMs, Ms 7, 1876, par. 3

After I came out of vision, Elders Dammon and Reed enquired if I saw them upon that high and holy path. I told them I recollected their countenances with many others, [and] at the same time gave them a warning not to become exalted, lest they lose the crowns it was their privilege to gain through humility and faithfulness. 3LtMs, Ms 7, 1876, par. 4
