TYPEs of PHAROAH AND THE +słAelites. 205

That I'll redeem from Satan's hand,
For so the end shall burst;
So he behind, you all do find,
Like roah to pursue;
And from the Type my Bible stands—
Bring all before your view:
The heathens here must surely fear,
They'll perish like tire Kings:
Because the likeness i shall clear,
The ending of the thing.
I tell you Men, for shadows strong
My Bible came so first;
And from the shadows I'll go on
Till every likeness burst.
When they were free you all do see
What wonders I did do;
How I destroy'd their enemy,
That was before their view.
These shadows here l now shall clear—
The nations do abound,
But their destruction they may fear;
My friends shall now be found
My lands to claim, they shall be mhne,
My chosen to enjoy;
And every Foe, they now shall know,
I shall them all destroy.
Now perfect as the Jews of old
Mankind do now appear;
For though the truth to them was told,
Thou knowest, in deep despair
Did many go, thou well dost know,
Before they saw the end;
Their unbelief they strong did shew,
No wonders made them bend,
The end to see in faith to Me,
And so to Man appear;
Because the End they do not see
Fulfilled in one year;
Then they turn back, and they do droop,
As Israel did of old,
Thinking that I to Man must stoop,
As I my mind have told,
To tell them plain I shall redeem
From every sore distress;
They think it hasty must be seen,
Or I do them oppress.
So now I'll clear like Israel here
My chosen Men are come;
Josephs and Calebs I have here
Amongst my “hosen men;
Their minds, I see, are bent in Ms
The End for to go through;
And others like the Jews they be,
Their murmaring I do know.

Thou now seest Men like them become,
And like the Jews appear;
They think deliverance must Ones
If I have spoken here;
If 't be not so they back will go,
Ne'er wait to see the end:
And from these shadows you must know,
Just like the Chapters penn'd
Do all appear, I tell thee here,
Believers do complain,
As their deliverance don't appear,
The promis'd land to gain;
They cannot wait to see their fate,
Of what is hastening on,
Though all the nations they do see
In wars and tumults come.
Then I'll go through, they all shall know,
As I went through before;
I surely will destroy their Foe,
And bring him to the shore;
So he behind his death shall find,
Like Pharoah now to fall;
The Foes before now in the war,
I'll surely conquer all ; *
The nations all they down shall fall,
That will not stoop to ME;
The promis'd land I now shall call
And to my people give,
That Abrahams here in faith appear.
And Jacobs to go on: -
From Isaac see the Type of Me—
I rose again for Man;
8o he the same, and Jacob came,
And so I shall go on,
Till Jacobs here do strong appear,
And Josephs to be found;
And Moses see the Type of Mr,
Iłow that in every sound
I visit there, let Man see clear,
And so I'll visit on,
Till all my Foes destroyed are,
My Kingdom then shall come.
The Shadows first to them did burst—-
But Satan was not bound,
And so their pleasures did not last;
They sinn'd in every sound.
But now I'm come to make an end,
For to destroy their Foe,
And I'll bring in a happy reign,
My chosen friends shall know
‘That from the first the whole must buffet,
As it did then appear;
it was to bring it to the last,
My Bible stands so theie.

THi GOSPEL OP ST. JOHN.— SONS OP ELI. 207

f

So every land see how they stand,

And every shadow see;
Satan i- bound by my command,

My Sealed people be,
Like Israel there do some appear

To murmur at my Word;
They judg'd deliverance it was near,

And then fell from their God;
because too soon, 1 say, ere noon

They judg'd the day must cndt
That all these wonders 1 must do»

No longer they'd depend,
To trust in Me, 'l plain do see,

So Isiael's seed is hepe;
Joshuas see, and Calebs be,

In faith do souit appear.
So every sign cail tho.u to mind

As ttiou hait pondcr'd througlk

THE GOSPEL O'F ST. JOHN.

John Hi. 14, 15, 16—And as Moses lifted.up th6 Serpent in the Wilderness, even so niust the Son Op Man be lifted up: that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life. For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten .Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

THE ANSWER OF THE LORD. "Now I shall answer thee from these words. They stand perfectly to the Gentiles as tlie Law did to the Jews, to all them that believed in Me, and relied on Me for Salvation; but now is coming the Fulfilment of My Death, to bring in Man's Redemption. Now come to verse \ 7—For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. Then now answer Me, ye worldly wise men, how the world can be sa,ved through Me, if I do not destroy all the -works of the Devil, as is prophesied of Me; and as I said I should come again, and take out of my Kingdom all that offend? Those that are now believing in Me for Salvation, without believing ia Me for Redemption, are like the sons pf Eli, who pretended to offer the sacrifice, but not according as the Lord had commanded them ; for though they were the sons of Eli, yet they were sons of Belial, that knew not the Lord. Now perfectly so is it with the Gospel; for though men profess to be children of those that believe the Gospel. and the Apostles that brought in the Gospel yet, they are as far departed from the Gospel, as Eli's sons were departed from their father, and from all the ordinances of the Lord ; and so they are departed from the Gospel. Now what honour do men bring to ME, to say, I died a shameful Death on the Cross, to cast out all the Jews, and bring in a few people to believe in Me, and save a few that are righteous Were not the righteous saved before ? Where is the merit you make of my Death and Sufferings, that the world through ME might be saved 2 othen know, if the world be 'saved through Me, I must destroy him that hath the power of Death, which is the Devil. Then are you not like Eli's sons, that know not the Lord, nor the power of HIs MIGHT, neither will you give ME the honour due unto My NAME 2 For now to Man I here shall answer: From the LAw and Gospel see, I that am thy every MasTER Now will fully answer thee. As 'twas before doth now appear, And Eli's sons are come; My Hosous: they will never clear, The way Men now go on. My Gospel. TRUE before their view They never will allow: That what I said I'd surely do— Vain mortals tell me how You can believe one that deceives, You say, in every word * For if My Gospel, do stop here You cannot prove the BREAD Caine down from HEAVEN, for Man was given To be the BREAD of LIFE, That is for all, wiren I do call, To end your every strife. So alswer here, let men appear, My Gospel let them see;

* Then tell ME how they'll baffle here,
My Spirit cannot be
So strong with Man, when I do come
To make the final End 2
For in My Gospel must be shewn
My Spirit I should scud,"

John xiv. 16, to the end—And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever; even the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it teeth him not, neither knoweth him: ‘but ye know him, for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you. At that day ye shall know that I am in my Father, and ye in Me, and I in you.-He that hath my commandments and keepeth them, he it is that loveth Me : and he that loveth ME shall be loved of

my Father, and I will love him, and will manifest

myself to him.—Jesus answered and said unto him, is a man love Me, he will keep my words: and my Father will love him, and we wilf come unto him, and make our abode with him.—These things have Ispoken unto you, being yet present with you.But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach You all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.-And now I have told you before it come to pass, that when it is come to pass ye might believe.

‘I’HE ANSWER OF THE LORD.

“Now let the world answer ME, whether they think these sayings of mine alluded only to my disciples 2 or whether they think they were spoken for believers at the End * Know, I said I am with you to the Fnd; but was 1 with my disciples to the end of their ** in the body ? Thou answerest, No; then it is in the Srini r that I must be with you in the End; and how can men allude my sayings to my disciples * * For know, I answered, if a man love MP, he *ill keep My woups. Now if I spoke thus on LY
