Tenth Article of Faith

Find each word in this article of faith by reading forward, backward, down, up, and diagonally. (Note: Start with the longer words—though the same letter may be used in more than one word, no shorter word is entirely within a longer one. For example, ten in this puzzle is not in tenth but is a separate word.) Starting at the top, and going from right to left, read the leftover letters (and two-hyphen dash) to find a secret message that will help you remember what this article of faith is about. Two words have been done for you.

Tenth article of faith: We believe in the literal gathering of Israel and in the restoration of the Ten Tribes; that Zion (the New Jerusalem) will be built upon the American continent; that Christ will reign personally upon the earth; and, that the earth will be renewed and receive its paradisiacal glory.
