gave himself a Ransom for all to be testified in due time.Rom. iv. 14. For if they that are of the Law are made heirs, Faith is made void, and the Promise made of Do effect; for the Promise to Abraham's seed was notthrough the Law, but through Faith. Rom.ix. 28. Because a short work will the Lord make upon the earth. ] 1th Rom. As concerning the Gospel, they are enemies for your sake; but as touching election, they are beloved for the Father's sake. Now I shall answer thee: If the Jews were enemies to the Gospel, for the calling in of the Gentiles, and through their blindness to seek my Blood to be shed for the Salvation of men, and give myself a Ransom for all to be testified in due time; then know, the dae time was not then come, as it was not made known how the Ransom of all men should come; but in due time it must be made known, that through election they are beloved for the Father's sake; because they worship the Father and rely on his Promises made by his prophets: then, if they keep to the Law, and are looking for a Messiah to come, that shall be their Deliverer; and you Gentiles believe that he is come, but that he will not be a Deliverer either to you'or to them; and throw all the Laws of God and the Prophets aside, foigetting all the words I left on record, and looking to no fulfilment of my Gospel, as the Jews do of the Law ; then your belief is not of faith, that I gave my life a Ransom For All to reconcile the tvorld unto God, for which it is written my Blood was *ed. Now compare your faith together, then you will find ye have seen but in part, ye have believed but in parr, and understood but in part; neither have ye discerned the height or depth of the unsearchable wisdom and goodness of God in Christ Jesus, nor what is to be testified in due time; for know, what I said of Daniel, when they see bis words fulfilled, then follows on my P.-irables to the end. Now I shall explain the meaning of the words of Daniel/ chapter ii. verse 44—" In the days

of these kings shall the God of Heaven set up &
Kingdom that shall not be destroyed :" but mark the
dream through, how all was broken in pieces, and
how they were mixed together that could not join to-
gether. Now mark the French nation, how they are
mixed together but cannot join together, no more
than iron and clay ; the one is strong, the other weak.
Now remember what I told thee in years past, of the
French nation: if they set up another king, or the
likeness of a king in France, his destruction would
be sought like the former; and this destruction
Bonaparte will find, if he remains long in that
place; for if he is not slain by the sword of war, he
will die by it in that land. For no more than clay
and iron can mix together, no more can they mix
and join with a king; and this hath appeared with
the Dutch. Then now see how the toes and feet are
one part iron and another part clay, that cannot join
together, as the one is strong, the other weak. Now
look abroad and see the divisions of nations, how they
stand like iron and clay; then know, they cannot
join long together; for these nations must be broken
in pieces; and the kingdom of God must be set up,
that is cut out without the hands of men. Here I
have shewed thee what will shortly take place
in distant nations; for there is coming a time
of trouble over the whole earth, such as never
was since there was a nation, kindred, or people*
But I know the thoughts of thy heart: "that it
must have been worse when the world was drowned.'
I teH thee no: they were too soon cut off to see alt
the troubles men will now see; for their troubles did,
not long appear in this world; for they could not see
the troubles that will now be seen over the whole
earth ; for I now tell thee, it will come to all lands like
the death of thy kinsman : unuttered groans to bring
them low: and when they see their judgments and
troubles; then will men run to and fro, from nation
to nation, from sea to sea, from shore to shore; and


knowledge shall be encreased, because men will then

see the truth of my Bible, that is now as a book •

sealed up from man; for it is not the book itself that

i« sealed by Daniel till the end; but the meaning of

it is sealed up to the end; for the sealed book that

was to be sealed up whose names where to be found

written therein, is now begun to be sealed, which

shall stand sealed to the end. For I now tell thee,

the end is, when I come in power to claim the King

joinfor My Own.; therefore it is written, many that

sleep in "{Tie earth shall awake, some to everlasting

life, and some to everlasting contempt. Now he

that hath ears to hear, let him hear ; and he that hath

a heart to understand, let him understand, that many

do not mean the whole race of mankind, to pjace

it to the final day of judgment, when I come to

make an end of all things. I tell thee no: it alludes

tony Comu*o to bring in My Kingdom ofKeack

here upon earth ; therefore I have already told thee,

and I now tell thee again, those whose names are

found written in the book, that are longing for my

Kingdom to come, and have subscribed with their ^ /

hands unto the Lord, but who die before the time, au~/ ®

Will then awake out of the dust, and appear"uT«v******£<>&"

umph on that great day, when I come to destroy

all the power of.the Devil; and then the wicked that

have been warned, andwho despised myComing, and

Kt at nought all my council, will then awake to their

shame and confusion, that now curse the Woman for

Winging it on Satan's head for his destruction, by

pleading the Promise that was made in the Fall. And

now she is come to claim th; Promise, and lay her

blame on Satun, as Man did on Me; saying, if I bear*

td the one, justice now demands for Satan to bear

the pther. By this just sentence Satan blinds the

tyes of men to shame the woman for so doing; but

then they will awake to their own shame and con

fusion. For I have already told thee, as the grave*

opened and many dead bodies appeared at my Death,

so they would appear at my Coming, in jmight, Big-* • iesty? and power; when I come to rend the veil of Satan's temple asunder, that he hath set up in the hearts of men, but then they will be rended asunder, and then will those whose names are written in the book for me to reign over all and claim the Kingdom for my own, awake to their endless joy and happiness, to see the Glory of my Reign, while those that mocked and despised it will awake to their shame and confusion to go with their master they stood up for, whose kingdom they wished to have remained: and with him.they must remain till the final day of judgment; but the righteous will shine as the sun in the firmament.

•Now I shall come to those who stood by the river; the one on the one side of the bank, the ^ other on the other side of the bank. "And yi]\ panidl heard the man that was clothed in linen, which was upon the waters of the river, when he held / up his right hand and his left hand unto Heaven,

and sware by him that liveth .for ever, that it shall be for a time, times, and an balf; and when he shall Jiave accomplished to scatter the power of the holy people, all these things shajl be finished."-1—Now I shall tell thee the meaning of the River and the Bank, that one stood on the one side, and the other stood on the other : the River is my Word that is fixed, and my Promise which I have made, that shall now run, as a river of joy and peace to all true believers. The Bank is the bounds that is fixed for men and devils; for all men shall know and see Satan's bounds are now fixed, as the book is sealed up for the end; and so it shall come' to men and devils; for I will now lift them up on my right hand, and on my left; the works of my hands that I created in man shall now be lifted up. The Jews that stand on one side 'of the bank, that are looking for the fulfilment of

the Law of God, and the Promises made to the Prophets; and the Gentiles that stand on the other fide of the bank, looking for the fulfilment of the Gospel and the Coming of their Lord. And now they shall both be lifted up, and come into one current stream together; and their peace shall flow as a river, and their joy as a mighty stream ; for the. Power oftheHoly People shall be accomplished, to be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might; and some will be scattered in distant nations to awaken and convince them, and call them to the knowledge of the Bible, that all may come to the knowledge of the Lord, and be wishing for the Kingdom of Christ, when I have made them sick with smiting them, and made them desolate because of their sins. Then will the living lay it to heart and return to give Glory to God ; for then cometh the end, perfect like the book that is sealed up ; therefore J told thee Daniel's words were closed till the time of the end. Then all men must know, they must be unclosed and be made known, and proved that they were sealed up until the fime of the end. And what the end shall be, now compare Daniel's visions with the visions of St. John in the Revelations, and see how they stand together, to be revealed and fulfilled in His appointed time.—Rev. ch. '21. And I John saw the holy city, the new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of Heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.—lam Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end :—I will give him that is athirst of the fountain of the water of life. Rev. ch. 2-2.— And he shewed me a pure river of water of life, clear as crystal, proceeding out of the throne of God and the Lamb: and there was a tree of life bearing twelve manner of fruits, which was for the healing of the nations, and there shall be no more curse :—The Spirit and the Bride say come, and let him that is athirst come, and whomsoever will let him take of the water of life freely.
