them to their bibles, and they will see in many places, particularly in the 13th chapter of Jeremiah, 4th verse, what a simple type is used there; but the meaning was to a great purpose ; and all the bible shews the same :--and yet, the Lord says-" In me there is no variableness, nor shadow of turning.”

Communications given since the Writings were
opened on the 12th of January, 1903.
T Shall now lay before the public suine parts of the sealed 1 Writings, which were given into the hands of three Ministers and four other Gentlemen, that came from different parts of the kingdom to Exeter, on Deccinber 28th, 1801, to examine into the truih of what they had heard; and as the Clergy of Exeter refused to join them to scarch out the truth, I was ordered, by The Spirit, to give into the hands of these gentlemen my sealed writings, on the 5th of January, 1909, who had acted with Soloinon's wisdom - as it is “ the wisdom of a king to search out a matter."

And as Satan has worked in the hearts of the people to fulfil one part, so the LORD, according to his promise, has sent his Spirit to fulfil the other action that he may not destroy the whole race of inankind in his anger,
