there is no death in HEAVEN. Then how can man suppose this alludes to things in heaven? There are no tears in heaven to wipe from men's eyes; there is no sorrow in heaven ; neither is there crying or pain there; becaase, they are passed from death unto life, to a world of joy, that can never end. But all these things are in the world, sorrow and sighing, pain and misery; these are the things that shall pass away, and man shall be made anew; and none of these sorrows shall remain, when my KINGDOM is brought down to man. But I tell thee the meaning of my kingdom being brouglit down; it is MY SPIRIT that MUST BE BROUGHT DOWN UPOX MAN. For mark deep the words how they are spoken: the seven angels, which had the seven vials, full of the seven last plagnes. Now, from these words, you must all discern, what plagues are to come upon the earth, when it cometh to the end. But know, they are the last.' Then mark what followeth : I will shew thee the "bride, the lamb's wife. And mark from the last chapter: the spirit and the bride saith come. Then ye mustall discern it is MY SPIRIT coming down to be poured out upon the sons of men. This is the NEW JERUSALEM that is coming down to make the earth as a heaven for man.

And now I shall tell thee of the gates : the glory of the light that come from the Lord will be as a precious stone unto man. And clear as the crystal I shall make my words and my ways before mankind. And he that entereth into the gates must enter in by faith. For though it is written, the names of the twelve tribes of the children of Israel, as though the children of Israel were the only people that should enter in ; but the twelve tribes do not allude particularly to Jews or Gentiles; or to any nation as a people; but the tribes of Israel are the tribes of FAITH; for know, it

Now, let men mark, from this vision, and from the words that I said, of overcoming the world, and of casting out the prince of this world. See in what manner the disciples bear record of my words, from what was shewn them afterwards. Now mark from the apostle : after Satan is bound, he saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first earth was passed away, and the tabernacle of God was with man. Now mark, from these words, what is meant by the first earth being passed away: it does not mean the world as it stands, that all shall be passed away and have no form, as it now is: I tell thee no; that is not the meaning ; for I created the world as I saw it was good. And so is the foundation of the earth placed, and all of its kind is good; the fruit in its kind; and every herb that groweth is good for man; and every grain of seed is good for man: therefore, it is not these things that will pass away, and be made anew, but it is the earthen vessels of men that will pass away from what they now are, and be made entirely anew in ME, that have been so tainted by the powers of darkness, by sin, and by the fall. Therefore, it is man that will be made anew when I come to bring in my kingdom, and destroy the powers of darkness, from working in man. What power has Satan to work in the earthly ground, to make it do evil ? But he hath a power to work in man, that was made of the earth, to make him do evil; therefore, this is the first earth that must pass away, to be created anew, when I bring my tabernacle to dwell with men; to be their God, and they to be my people. Then will I wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death. Now, from these words, the eyes of men's understanding must be opened, to see
