out again, for the fire is eternal though they come out. But those who do good against evil, that eternal fire cannot touch.

Wakefield, 6th of 12th month, 1835. It is written, “ And the Lord God took the man, and put him into the garden of Eden to dress it and to keep it.” Gen. ii. 15.

“The keeping of the garden, was keeping the command which was given him, which is now given to Israel. And it is written, “ Keep the doors of thy mouth from her that lieth in thy bosom.” Micah vii. 5. Narrow is the way to the Gentiles, who are not permitted to see the way; but a wide way to Israel, set with all kinds of precious fruits. It is said, “ I go to prepare a place for you.” John xiv. 2. This place meant their temples.”

Wakefield, 16th of 12th month, 1835. John HUSKINS, of Bristol, inquires, Who is the Son of man spoken of in Matthew ? " And they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory.” Matt. xxiv. 30. It cannot be Jesus the woman's seed, as he is not the seed of man, but the Son of God.

Answer.-I am a Spirit; I took the seed of the woman's cleanness, and of it I made a man, and on him I rested, till I had caused him to fulfil that which I had given man to do; I then opened the door of his tabernacle and entered in with him, and took it for mine own temple, and made it the Godman; fulfilling Jesus's words, “ The Lord said unto my Lord, Sit thou on my right hand till I make thine enemies thy footstool ?” Matt. xxii. 44. And my Spirit which proceeded from me, which I took from the woman into heaven, which fulfils the 12th

chapter of Revelation, is the branch of me, the Son of man, which is descending on men of Satan, whose father is the devil, by him sowing the tares in the field, which he received of Adam ; Jesus said, “Ye are of your father the devil.” John viïi. 44.

“ And the Son of man is now descending on them, that they do as the woman's seed did, that he may redeem them from the tares, which is the attraction of Satan, that they may become the sons of men, that he may redeem them. So ye shall travail as a travailing woman in birth, for anguish of pain till ye be begotten of the man-child, he making your mortal lives immortal; he dwelling in you, and being the life of your temples, then ye shall know no more anguish, knowing ye are brought forth of a manchild, who in you shall rule all nations, as with a rod of iron. This is the woman, which is taken out of the man, my Spirit, which is hid with Christ in me, to give to you, which shall be an helpmate to you, fulfilling the Scripture," It is not good that the man should be alone.”* Gen. ii. 18.

John THOMSON inquires, What is the meaning of the words in Exodus ? « I the Lord thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me.” Exod. xx. 5.

Answer.-All that commit wickedness, partake of their father, which Cain received of Adam, and Adam of the woman, and the woman of Satan, the devil, which is their father. And I will visit him and his sins, whereby he causeth the children to sin, I will visit them even unto the third generation. But those that seek for sin to be taken away from them, and to be kept from it, by my Spirit abiding on them, till they have done as the Scriptures have said, their mortal lives shall be swallowed up of immortality; then shall they live in mine image, and be as I am, which is the end of the third generation. I will then take Satan the father of their fathers, the author of their sins, and bind him in hell, for a thousand years; and I will bring the aliens out of the rocks, and they shall enjoy my Sabbath for a thousand years: during which period, they with those who were beheaded for the word of God, shall serve those who have been redeemed from the third generation, from amongst men, being found with my fruit the vine.

* With Satan.

“And after the thousand years in the fourth generation, Satan shall be loosed out of his prison for a little season, and will go amongst the children of the strangers, and try to encamp with them round the saints, and the beloved city; but fire shall descend and consume them. (Rev. xx, 7-9.) But those whose trees were digged about, and pruned, in the third generation, by Satan being removed from them, and have borne fruit during the thousand years, immortality shall swallow up their mortal lives, and they shall stand as a jury between the woman and the seed of man, and Satan. For Satan contends that it was neither him nor the man, but me, in giving him the woman.”

The words of the Lord came unto me, saying: “Why dost thou meditate in thy mind, in what way my word will be fulfilled ? The first son of Adam was of the corrupt tree, being brought forth in the uncleanness on both sides. And at the flood the whole of them were destroyed, because the tree was corrupt.

“ And of the third son of Adam, I kept one out of a family in remembrance that their mortal bodies should put on immortality, till the time of the flood. And out of every dispensation I have kept those

whose bodies saw not death. I called unto Noah, and his three sons, and their wives, being eight persons, and I preserved them till I had destroyed the rest by the flood. The first son of Noah I remembered though their bodies have died, and are sown in the earth, yet shall they come with me, and minister, they not having lost their faith of the immortality of their bodies, these are they whom I caused Enoch to foresee. (Jude 14.) And of the firstborn of Shem, Noah's son, I kept some in remembrance as heirs of my kingdom, that I would give them. They have called unto me, and I have heard them. And of their seed I brought forth the woman, guarded by the angels, lest she should be polluted by man to bring forth without man. That her seed should be at enmity with the seed of him that sowed the tares by man in the field. And that his blood should be shed for the dead, and sown by man in the earth, that it might take root in the ground, and give them incorruptible bodies, at the first or final resurrection. And that his body should be given for the living, that their bodies might live, that he might then take it again. And that the twelve tribes of the house of Israel, being the children of Jacob's twelve sons, and the twelve families of the house of Joseph, being the children of Joseph's two sons, should be scattered over the face of the planet. These I foreknew, that that which is in part may be taken from them, that I may give them the power of the earth, which is the immmortality of their bodies, it being my kingdom, the rest I have given to be sown again in the earth, and raised incorruptible.

“And of Ishmael, because he was Abraham's son I have kept one in remembrance out of a family of him, who have not polluted themselves in their mother's uncleanness, till the time that I set my hand a second time, to begin to gather Israel. They have sought unto me for the angels to keep back the enemy. For I now declare even to the whole house of Israel, which are to be numbered, that I will forgive them all their sins, wherewith soever they have sinned one against another, but after joining my covenant, those that go in unto the corrupt tree, which is the tree of death, shall die as well as they that are born of it. But he that seeks to be kept from it will not do this. So now I call to the whole twelve tribes of the house of Israel, and the twelve families of the house of Ephraim and Manasseh, I will take two out of every tribe, and two out of every family, with their offspring, and these shall take no rest, till I give them my Spirit, which shall abide on them. And they shall fulfil the Scriptures as the woman's seed did.

“And for the rest, meditate not thou in thine heart, touching them; for all those that have died in faith of those things, since the beginning of the creation, shall come with me, to minister to my kingdom, to those that shall inherit with me."
