Because 'twas I who made man at the first, ..
Then now I tell you, you shall feel my spear.
And from the devil every lie tlen fell; And now the woman's seed do strong appear, To prove the serpent was the devil there; And now I see the enmity is plac'd ; . By Satan's arts the woman now is cast; And, by my wisdom-man is cast the same, ., To prove that wrong his Maker he does blare; Because I let the devil speak in man, To shew you Satan, and his every plan, How with such arts he does mankind deceive ; And therefore madly do mankind believe'; Nor of their judgment they do not discern, Nor in what manner I to thee do warn. But now his mad believers do appear, In words of madness they no way can clear; Unless they now will turn the woman's friend, Confess their folly, - to mů sceptre bend; And with the woman's seed they'll now agree. No other wou presented man cun be; Because high treason they've pronounced here ; Made me the serpent for to feel my pear! Because the roice by whi: von were betray'd, I tell thee now must tak up in his head : Or else your bibles you must give the lie. The woman's seed will bruise his head this way; And with the woman's seed I now shall join. I see old Adan now appear in man, Upon your Maker for to cast the blame; And that's the way I'll put you all to shame; And if that way the prophet do appear, I tell you, soon he'll feel the furious bear : For that's the way he never shall turn back ; The bear shall meet him, and his bones shall break; And he shall ner er see the promis'd land! . The woman's sced must every bliss command, And 'lis by her that you must all be free: She cast her blame on S.ATAX, not on ME: And in the end she now hath done the same. Here's Eve and Adam, as at first they came : And now I tell you to weigh deep the fall; For now the woman's seed shall conquer ali! For now my HEEL they've surely bruis'd it here, To say a serpent I at first appear'd: Then now I tell them I shall bruise bis head. You say my prophet did so wrongly plead ja Then súre like Balaam he does now appear; The simple ass reproves his madness here, To tell you all, my sword is in the way, I'll send my angels, and your prophet slay,
If in this manner you do still go on.
Then try the spirit for to know your God. “Now I shall come to the purpose with all men. Prophecies have ceasel, in the manuer they were given to the prophets of old, ever since my coming into the world. For then I told them they should be warned by the inward moring of my Spirit: and by words being given, like the sound of the wind, that ye know not from whence it cometh, or whither it goeth; so would the Spirit visit those to whom he is sent. But it is written, by my apostle, “ believe pot every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God or not.” Then ve must try them by the touchstone of my WORDS; for be that comethi any other way, than is said in my gospel, is a thief and a robber: and like a thief and a robber hath le put this last 'book in print; for they have robbed ME of my honour, and wrested the scriptures to their own condemnation, and all mankind. If they make
ME the serpent, all men are lost for ever; and there can be no redemption for man. The promise was made for man's redemption, when the woman's seed shall bruise the serpent's head; and the curse fall on him above every man. The curse pronounced on the serpent, as a beast, is but a type and shadow of the devil : having no feet, meaneth, Satan shall have no footing liere on earth, after his head is bruised by the Seed of tire Woman.
For 'tis the woman's conquering seed
To lie, to murder, men to kill;
He now hath got the dragon's feel;
But like the skin, I tell you here,
“For as the serpent has no feet, and loseth his skin; he is a type of the devil, that shall lose his footing and power here on earth; and shall run away, leaving nothing behind that can hurt; only shewing to man, by his works, that he hath been here; as the serpent sheweth you by his empty skin, that he hatlı been where it is found, but no appearance of his body near it :- this is a clear type of the Devil's destruction. Circumcision is a clear type to man: he must be circumcised in heart and life, leaving all the foreknowledge he had before of his own, and come to the second resurrection from the dead: the first dyeth, but the second quickeneth. Circumcision in man is a sure sign to him that the fall shall be taken away from man, and he shall be quickeneil by my Spirit. Circumcision is a type of man's redemption; the serpent is a type of Satan's destruction; and the WOMAN is a type of Je, whose blood was shed for all men, to bring the fruits of the spirit to man; for as it is in nature, so it is in grace. The woman's seed must bruise the serpent's head. Now the enmity is placed between the woman's seed and the man, who is under the influence of the devil, to cast all on his Maker, as Adam did: Lut know, that in Adain ail
