for as they have delighted to do evil in the six churches, their delight shall be to do good to the seventh church, which is the church of the first-born, and their honour and glory shall be, how they may adorn it. This shall be a striving in righteousness, and not in contention. And every one that is redeemed from amongst men, shall know their own tenants; for as Cain cried out, saying, Every one that found him would slay him, this is the cry of all those nations that shall escape in dens, clefts and rocks; when they come out they shall say, We shall appear as fugitives and vagabonds in the sight of this people, and we are afraid they will kill us, (Gen. iv. 12-14, others will say, Let us go and seek our lives, for we have heard that they will preserve us. Then the saints of the Most High shall meet with them, and bring them to the bridegroom and the bride. And in that day, seven women shall take hold of him that is redeemed, and say, We will eat our own bread, and wear our own apparel, only let us be called by thy name, (Isa. iv. 1, that our lives may be granted; and they will give themselves no rest till their request be granted : I will then put my mark upon them, and every one shall know his own servants, and these servants shall live a thousand years without death, for it shall be a Sabbath of Sabbaths unto them, and a day of days of rest from the hands of the adversary. And I will beautify my planet, as I declared by Isaiah, “The desert shall rejoice and blossom as the rose. It shall blossom abundantly, and rejoice even with joy and singing : the glory of Lebanon shall be given unto it, the excellency of Carmel and Sharon, they shall see the glory of the Lord, and the excellency of our God. I will plant in the wilderness the cedar, the shittah tree, and the myrtle, and the oil tree; I will set in the desert the fir tree, and the pine, and the box tree together. For the Lord shall comfort Zion : he will comfort all her waste places; and he will make her wilderness like Eden, and her desert like the garden of the Lord. Instead of the thorn shall come up the fir tree, and instead of the briar shall come up the myrtle tree: and it shall be to the Lord for a name, for an everlasting sign that shall not be cut off.” Isa. xxxv. 1, 2; xli. 19; li. 3; lv. 18. And as the woman knoweth what belongeth unto the man, so shall my sons and daughters know what belongeth unto me."

Wakefield, 9th of 5th month, 18:3.. “ The kingdom of heaven is likened unto a man which sowed good seed in his field.” Matt. xiii. 24.
“The field is the woman's body, the good seed is the seed of the woman, when not in her flowers.
“While men slept, an enemy came, and sowel tares among the wheat.” Matt. xiii. 25.
“ The men that slept, are Adam, for while he slept Satan came and sowed tares by his attraction, in the woman, which was the persuasion to persuade the man to take of her flowers, which I had forbidden him, which should be death to his body, and when the man awoke, I, the Lord God, brought her unto him, and she presented herself with the flowers which the tares were sown in, before the man, and he took thereof, and fell from that immortal breath, which I had breathed into his nostrils, and became mortal, and received a soul having an evil heart, instead of receiving a soul with a good heart, like unto the woman's seed Jesus, and became spiritually dead, and subjected his body to a temporal death within the thousand years.
“Adam knew his wife, and she conceived and bare Cain, and said, I have gotten a man from the Lord.” Gen. iv. 1. But she knew not that she had got a man with the evil that Satan could attract. Afterwards Adam's eyes being partly opened, he waited on the tree of the woman, till it had fruit on it, then went in anto her again, and she bare Abel, (Gen. iv. 2, so that he was not conceived in the uncleanness of his mother, but in that of his father, it not being taken away. To Cain and his seed, I made no covenant of the life of their bodies, but if they did well, they should be accepted; but to Abel and his seed I promised that if they sought for it, that sin which brought death to be pronounced on their bodies should be taken away, and their mortal bodies should put on immortality. But he who was conceived in the flowers of his mother, slew him who was not so conceived.
“ Though the immortality of the body was promised to the twelve tribes, they have not yet obtained it, because they have not kept my commandments, but I have obtained it in Jesus, the woman's seed, and made it a glorious body, and will set my hand a second time and will obtain for them. And I am now handing forth the leaven of the Spirit to the whole house of Israel, fulfilling the passage in Isaiah, “I will pour my Spirit upon thy seed, Isa. xliv. 3, and in Ezekiel, “ And put my Spirit within you, (which is the graft,) But I will yet for this be enquired of by the house of Israel to do it for them.” Ezek. xxxvi. 27, 37. That I may take that sin away from you which Adam imputed to me in giving him the woman, which sin, is the tares which the enemy sowed in the field through his attraction.
“Give none offence, neither to the Jews, nor to the Gentiles, nor to the Church of God.” 1 Cor. x. 32.
“The churches of the Jew and Gentile are the two churches which have been in each of the three dispensations, making six; the good of them is for incorruption at the first resurrection, and the evil of them are hid from my presence, they will not put on incorruption till the final resurrection; and my church is the seventh church, which shall put on immortality, There has been good in each of these churches, as well as evil, as the tree of knowledge of good and evil, but good has ruled over the evil, till the death of their
bodies, to pay the wages of the sin of Adam ; for though they were good, I required the death of their bodies as a sacrifice, it being the wages of that sin which was imputed to Adam, which Satan inoculated man with by that seed which he sowed in the woman through his attraction. Therefore I said to Satan, “ Dust shalt thou eat all the days of thy life.” Gen. iii. 14. .

Wakefield, 13th of 5th month, 1835. An inquiry from Alexander Rennie, Ireland.—Who were the sons of God, and who were the children of men? as written in Genesis vi. 2. “That the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were fair; and they took them wives of all which they chose.”
I laid the above enquiry last night before the Lord, and this morning I was answered as follows, the Spirit resting on me, and giving me understanding.
“ Seth, (who was begotton in the cleanness of his mother, though in the uncleanness of his father, and his posterity I adopted to be my sons, and made a covenant with them of the life of their natural bodies, (if they kept it.) To prove this adoption, I took Enoch, without the death of the body, for the first dispensation ; yet, was he not complete without the woman : seeing they walked not in my covenant, I shut the door of the life of immortality, and permitted death to reign, by their bodies dying; they then cried unto me, and I made a second covenant with them, that if they repented of their evil, and shewed me their obedience and repentance by bringing me their first-fruits, and the firstlings of their clean cattle, and offering them for sacrifices, I answered them by fire from heaven, and though death should be permitted to reign over their bodies, till the door of the tree of life was opened, it should not reign
over their souls, but at the first resurrection I would raise their souls out of their corruptible bodies into incorruptible, for their spirits to dwell in.
“ And I opened the door in the second dispensation and shewed them the first covenant, by which I took Elijah without the death of the body, to prove the adoption, that I had adopted man to become my son. This is my covenant unto the house of the Hebrews, which were conceived in the cleanness of their mother.
“On the fourth day I remembered my promise to the woman, that I would put enmity between her seed and the seed of Satan, with which the man was : inoculated, and she brought forth her seed, without the seed of man, wherein no tares were sown, which by the angel was called Jesus, who said, I am the vine, and my Father, who gives me the word, is the husbandman; he giveth increase to the ground, and bringeth the seed to perfection ; I tilled the ground, by my Spirit resting on his body, till the law was fulfilled, and the gospel given; then as Cain slew Abel, so did the sons of men rise up and shed the life of the blood of my Son; I then took the seed of the woman for a temple, and made it mine own abode. The third son of Adam, viz. Seth, I made of his seed, the adopted father of the seed of the woman, which is my temple, not the real father, for I was before he was, neither was Joseph the carpenter the father of the woman's seed, but through adoption.
I said " And there shall come forth a rod out of the stem of Jesse ; and a branch shall grow out of his roots.” Isa. xi. 1. i.
The Interpretation.--" David sprung from Jesse, who was the stem, Mary, the mother of Jesus, the rod sprung from David, who was the rod from the stem. But they refusing the woman's seed I refused them to enter in at the door, and I raised the body of the woman's seed, and entered in, and shut the door on them, and grafted the Gentiles into the tree of the second covenant, which was made to the third son of Adam, and the first son of Noah, and their
