1 Thus saith the holy Angel; Hear, O ye children of men, and hearken to my voice, saith the mighty One of Israel, while I plead with you, as a kind and tender father pleadeth with those whom he hath been instrumental in bringing into existence, and for whom he feeleth the responsibility of a parent’s duty and obligation.
2 Thus saith the Holy and Eternal Father; for all the souls of the children of men do I feel; and all whom I have created are precious in my sight, and my love and tenderness are towards all; although by sin and transgression they have been marred and bruised in my sight, until there remaineth no form nor comeliness in them.
3 Yet I will seek after my own, and my arm of mercy and forgiveness will I extend unto all, even to the uttermost, that will return unto my house, and be stript of their beggarly garments, and be washed from their filthiness, and be arrayed in new garments, clean and white.
4 Yea, unto them I will extend mercy and forgiveness, and with the arm of a tender Father, will I receive them in my bosom, and they shall sorrow no more; and I will heal them of their bruises, and cause them to rejoice and be comforted.
5 And wherein they have subsisted upon that which satisfied nothing, but the cravings of that beastly and vile nature, which is cursed in my sight, and have become servants thereunto; they have thereby been brought to feel their poverty and wretchedness in that state whither they have roamed in a strange land.
6 In that strange land, have they wasted that portion of light and understanding, which every soul hath received at my hand, sufficient to guide their steps and cause them to walk safely in my presence, according to their faithfulness and obedience to that portion of light which I gave them, in their day. Yet if they repent they shall be fed with the bread of life, and be clothed with the garments of righteousness.
7 For mankind have become aliens and prodigals to Me, saith the Lord, and are no more worthy to claim my parental care; yet, saith the merciful Father of all, they who will say, in the bitterness of their souls, I will arise and return to my Father’s house, and implore his mercy, and will come, as did the prodigal son, and bow before Me and say:
8 O Father! I have sinned and transgressed thy holy laws and requirements, and have wasted that which thou gavest me, and have trampled under foot thy mercies towards me, and have wandered far from thee, until I am no more worthy to be called thy son; but make me as thy servant, that my soul may live and not die; Then will I show mercy to them, saith the Lord.
9 For in this manner, do I require the prodigal race of man, who have strayed far from their Father’s house, to return unto Me. And when they come in this penitent feeling, suppose ye that I will suffer them to tarry in my house, and in my presence arrayed in their filthy garments?
10 Nay, saith the Lord; but I will cause them to be stript, washed and clothed in the best robe, not in the form or habit of a servant; but in the habit of the sons of my household, clad in the royal robe of righteousness.
11 And I will greatly rejoice over those who were dead in trespasses and sins, who will return and become alive unto righteousness; and my house shall be filled with joy and gladness, at the return of my sons and daughters, who were lost and are found, were dead and have become alive.
12 And there shall be music and dancing, and the sound of those who make merry in my house, shall be heard, and my house shall be a house of joy and gladness, and not of gloom and sadness.
13 And who shall be offended because of this? Who shall stand out and say, The like of this hath never been done to any, in past dispensations of the grace of God? Even to those who have been never so faithful and true, thou hast never been thus joyful over them, as to cause thy house to be joyful, even with music and dancing, feasting and making merry with those who have wasted thy substance, and are no more worthy to come into thy presence.
14 Again I ask, Who shall be offended at this? Will it not be the self-righteous, who desire promotion above all others, those who say, “Stand thou by thyself; for I am more holy than thou;” seeking to remain in my house, clothed in the garments of self-righteousness, unwilling to be cleansed and receive mercy, like the prodigal, who feels no right of himself, but merely depends on the mercy of the Father, who hath a right to with-hold or bestow on whomsoever He will.
15 And in this way, saith the Lord, will many become offended and stand out, refusing to come into my house, upon the degrading terms of the prodigal, and refuse to enter and become partakers of my rich blessings, and rejoice in the dances of them that make merry.
16 And thus will they be rejected and lose their birth-right; because they rejoice not in that wherein I rejoice; and they condemn not that which I condemn, saith the Lord. For my joy is not their joy, neither is my delight their delight, nor my wisdom their wisdom.
17 But through their own natural wisdom, they judge and condemn according to their own selfish reasonings, unwilling to come upon the same conditions with those whom they, according to their own self-righteousness, consider not so worthy as themselves.
18 But thus saith the Lord of hosts, the mighty One of Israel, I am the Father, the benevolent and merciful Father of all souls, and my love is even unto all; and I will gather my sons from afar, and my daughters from the ends of the earth; and they shall come and know that I am the Lord, and besides Me there is no other.
19 And I will gather them, and whosoever will, may come in, and become sons and daughters to Me, by leaving behind the garments of servitude to that beastly nature of the flesh, and be clad in garments of joy and rejoicing; rejecting that food which is beastly and serpentine, and gladly and thankfully receiving the rich blessings which I do provide for my household.
20 Yea, for those who have come in, and are made partakers of that food which is even delicious to the Angels, that never strayed from Me by disobedience, but have always obeyed my voice and hearkened to my call, rejoicing with Me their Heavenly Father, at the return of the poor and needy children of men, destitute of the comforts of life by disobedience.
21 Verily, saith the Father, there is joy in heaven over one soul that repenteth of the error of his ways, and becomes renewed to righteousness, more than over many who went not astray and needed no repentance.
22 And who are they that need no repentance? Can it be those who belong to the prodigal race of man? Truly not; for all men have sinned, and come short of that righteousness which will be a savor of life unto them, and remain dependent upon the mercy of the only wise and merciful One, who inhabited eternity, the Author and Finisher of all good unto man.
23 Again I ask, Who are they that are, in very deed, ever with Me, and have never strayed and become transgressors in my sight, who need no repentance, excepting those who never inhabited the earth by the fall? Those who have surrounded my throne for ages, walking in strict obedience to my will, ever with Me as dutiful children, rejoicing as I rejoice, and mourning as I mourn.
24 Yea, and feeling for the lost children of men as I feel; possessing that spirit which I possess; harboring no envyings, although I return and meet the prodigal race afar off, and embrace them in the arms of love and tender compassion, and weep for joy; because of the lost which are found, and because of the dead which have become alive.
25 And they who rejoice with Me, are ever with Me, and all that I have, do they possess, and they are ever blessed in my sight; yet, if they partake not with Me, of my joy, how can they be of Me, although they may inherit all things?
26 But they who rejoice with Me, the holy and just Parent, and are willing to go forth with Me, and meet the fallen race, and be workers together with Me, in gathering home the lost and afflicted children, who have strayed far from Me, who are willing to return and become as nothing in my sight; such are truly mine.
27 Yea, saith the holy and just One, all who will abide in my house, must be partakers of my joy and my sorrow. And all who will come in, may rejoice with Me, and be partakers of all the blessings which my house affords, and nothing shall ever separate them from Me.
28 Great is my joy over the lost that are found, and I will rejoice over them, evermore, saith the Lord. And I will meet my children who are yet afar off, and embrace them in the arms of my never-ending love and tender compassion.
29 And I will cause my holy Angels, who are ever with Me, to go forth and meet them, constrain them to come in, and be stript of their beastly garments of sin and transgression, and be clothed in the best garments, which are the garments of righteousness.
30 These garments are obtained by the new birth, by casting off the filthy rags of the flesh, and becoming new creatures in my likeness, through my beloved Son and Daughter, the mediators and spiritual parents of all whom I ever receive, and who become precious in my sight.
31 All who are sunk in the pit of self-gratification, and have wasted all that they have received of Me, the giver of all good; when they become awakened to their poverty, and return, and are willing to be nothing, holding no claim, save that mercy which floweth from a tender parent; yet feeling themselves unworthy to receive even that; such receive ye in my name, O my faithful servants.
32 Yea, receive them, and cause them to be stript and washed, and bring ye the best garment, that they may be clothed with the royal garment of the resurrection of life: for as they were clad in trespasses and sins, in likeness of their natural parents; so shall they become alive unto righteousness, in likeness of the new and spiritual parents, by the new birth, and they shall reign evermore, as sons and daughters of the Prince and Princess of peace and glad tidings.
33 But they who seek to come in and be partakers in my house, clothed with their garments of prodigality, unwilling to forsake all, still claiming a right in my house; shall I not cause them to be cast out, as not having on the wedding garment?
34 Truly, saith the Lord, I will have none in my house, clothed in beastly garments, belonging to those who walk after the flesh, and not after the spirit. But I will cast them out, into outer darkness, and there shall they weep and wail with their kindred who yet remain in darkness, and under the bondage of sin and death.
35 For in my house shall be joy and gladness, rejoicing over the power and dominion of sin and transgression, and my sanctuary shall be filled with those who rejoice in the dance. And ye who become offended, and refuse to come in as humble prodigals, know ye, that never shall ye taste of the blessings which I have prepared, until ye become humble, and are willing to receive at my hand, having no right, only by the mercy of that God whose mercy endureth forever.
36 And this is my word, which I have caused to be written, and all souls shall yet see that I the Lord, will fulfill my promises, and not one word of all which I have spoken, shall fall to the ground unaccomplished.
37 But they who spurn at my way, and reject my offers of mercy to them, I say they have no promise; for one way have I opened for all souls. For as all have strayed by Adam, and have become lost in sin and transgression, and have laid waste and squandered that portion of light which I gave them, they have plunged themselves into shame and disgrace by mingling with the beasts, in the services of their father the Devil, filling their bellies with husks, like unto the herds of swine, as the prodigal did.
38 So in like manner as he did, shall they all return; and I will meet them as such, and in no other way shall they ever come into my presence, saith the Lord.
1 Hearken, saith the holy Angel, to the word of the Lord, and write, Holy and eternal is the word of God unto man in this day, in which the end hath come.
2 Thus saith the Lord of hosts, How have I clothed the earth with beauty! How have I caused the natural earth, by cultivation, to become beautiful and comely, yielding fruits and flowers of various kinds, according to the care and attention of the cultivator; so in proportion is the earth beautiful in my sight.
3 For as the natural earth was designed to be brought into the perfection of beauty, by the hand of the cultivator, each one cultivating his own soil, under his own dominion; so in like manner have I designed to have my new earth brought into perfection of beauty by the daily exertions of the cultivator.
4 For after the fire passeth over the earth to consume the rubbish, then springeth up the good seed, and by the care of the cultivator, is the earth redeemed and brought into perfect cultivation, and adorned with beauty, in proportion to the labor bestowed upon it, which requireth a daily watchfulness and care, and the daily labor and toil of the tiller, the true husbandman, each one tilling his own land whereon he hath dominion.
5 And thus shall the whole earth, which I the Lord will create, become beautiful in my sight; for I will cause the fallow ground of the hearts of the children of men to be broken up, and become prepared to receive the good seed of faith; and it shall spring up and yield fruit, some fifty and some a hundred fold, in proportion to the labor of the cultivator of the soil.
6 And thus shall man be subdued from the old element of sin, and be renewed into the element which is of the new earth, wherein dwelleth righteousness and peace, the fruits proceeding from love, the primary standing element of the new earth: for the fruits which proceed from this source, are beautiful.
7 But beware that ye pluck up and burn everything that beareth the fruit opposite to love, which is hatred and malice: for this is the seed of the old earthly and fallen nature, which must be consumed and rooted out by a daily labor and toil.
8 As the natural man cultivateth the natural earth by the sweat of his brow; so shall the new man cultivate the new earth by the sweat of his brow, until he shall subdue it, and bring it into perfect cultivation to the good seed which groweth out of love, the pure element of heaven. And thus the soil of the new earth becomes subdued and brought into cultivation by a daily labor.
9 And thus do I the Lord, require of every fallen being, that they eat the bread of life by the sweat of the brow, until they come into that spirit of perfect love in which they are created anew, and thus will their warfare be accomplished, and their victory won. And thus shall they reign as lords over my heritage, as did my firstborn and begotten ones, subduing all things that breathed in opposition to the pure spirit of love.
10 And again, saith the Lord, Who are mine in the day of my vengeance? Whom shall I make willing in the day of my power? Am I, the Lord, going to compel any one to become willing to be a tiller of the ground, that he may reap the good of the soil which I have given to him?
11 Where would be the consistency of a landlord’s saying to a poor cottage man, Come thou with me, and I will give thee sufficient land that with care and attention, and suitable cultivation, thou mayest reap a plenty through life, to make thee comfortable and happy, having a plenty of the good things of this life, if thou wilt only bestow sufficient labor thereon to subdue it, and bring it into proper cultivation; and then to compel the man to become the gainer contrary to his inclinations?
12 Would it be his wisdom to use forcible means to bring him to a willingness to till the ground, that it may yield him a comfortable sustenance and blessing? Nay, in no wise. But he would rather call those who would be thankful to receive the offers of the merciful man, who designed to bestow favor on the poor and destitute children of men.
13 For, saith the Lord, they who will not work cannot reap, in a natural point of view. Neither can any soul reap of the blessings of the new earth, until he becomes willing in the day of my power, and voluntarily chooses to put his hands to work, that he may have wherewith to become fed and clothed from day to day.
14 But the slothful shall suffer hunger; for they who will not work, neither shall they eat, saith the Lord. Thus stands my decree forever and ever; and although they may beg their bread from door to door, and live upon the earnings of others for a season; yet by their indolence and slothfulness shall they perish.
15 For I the Lord am just, I measure unto all, in due season, a portion of my spirit, which, by nurture and cultivation, will yield sufficient of the fruits of righteousness to cause the soul to become fat therewith, and to be enriched therefrom. And thus shall the willing and obedient eat the good of the land; but the idle soul shall suffer hunger.
16 This is my word at this time, for the understanding of all who hear, that they may see, if they will, the necessity of being willing and obedient in the day of my power, and of putting their hands to work, to cultivate the spirit of truth, which will bring forth the fruits of righteousness and peace in every soul, by subduing every thing that sprouts forth in opposition thereunto.
17 “Behold I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to give every man according as his work shall be.” Yea, saith the Lord, I am come, and my reward is with Me, and I will give unto every one in proportion to his labor: and they who labor much, shall receive much; and they who labor little, shall receive little; yet all shall receive their penny, from the last even to the first.
18 But they who labor in the form of a servant, for hire, shall never receive more than their penny, although they labor all the days of their lives; if they labor in the spirit of a hireling, they shall receive neither more nor less than the wages of the hireling.
19 And thus will I say unto them, Take that which is yours and go your way; for I will render unto every one according as his works shall be. For the hireling is worthy of his hire, and he taketh that which is his and goeth his way; and the wages of the hireling shall perish with the hireling.
20 For they whom I the Lord do call into my vineyard and say, Work ye in my vineyard, and at evening I will recompense you; if they go forth as the laborer for his hire, having no respect to his Lord’s heritage, only to receive the recompense of a hireling, let their labor be long or short, they shall never gain an inheritance thereby; but they shall go their way with their penny which they have earned.
21 But they who put their hands to work, and whatsoever they find to do, do it with their might, having no respect to person or selfish gain, as doth the hireling; but as the true and rightful heir, who endureth forever in the presence of his Lord, knowing that in the end he shall inherit all things, such and such only, will I own. For it is not the length of labor that entitles the soul to the reward; but it is the spirit in which they labor.
22 And this is my word, which I leave upon the record, knowing that many will be called, but few chosen; for I will choose none except those who work in the spirit of the true and faithful heir, who careth for nothing but to build up, beautify and enrich his Father’s heritage, taking no thought for himself, in a selfish manner, only to know that he walks in perfect obedience to the will of his parents in all things.
23 These, and these only will I own, saith the Lord, and these are mine, and nothing shall sever them from Me; for I will hold them in the hollow of my hand, and they shall dwell with Me forever and ever: For in that they have given up all, soul and body, faculties and strength, for the good of my heritage, and have demanded no personal claim, nor become envious; but have considered it their privilege so to do; and the more good their hands found to do, the better pleased they were; Such are mine and ever shall be mine.
24 And thus shall ye receive the reward of the true and rightful heir; while those who work for hire, shall receive the reward of the hireling, and be sent away therewith, until they are willing to cast off the spirit of the hireling, and come in, in the true spirit of the rightful heir.
25 And this is my word upon this subject; and this word have I not spoken in vain, nor have I caused it to be written in vain: for with a meaning have I done it, and let it be recorded, that not only this generation, but the generations to come may know the mind and will of the Most High, concerning those who work as hirelings in my house, seeking a daily recompense of reward, murmuring and the like; counting their wages and reckoning their expenses, and the like abominations, which are a stink in my nostrils, saith the Holy and Eternal Jehovah.
A FURTHER EXPLANATION FROM THE ANGEL OF PROPHETIC LIGHT.
26 Here is manifested the different states of those who, when they are called and receive faith in the gospel, from a principle of love, freely give up all their own interest, all their time and talents, and devote their faculties of soul and body willingly, without reserve, to build up and support the work of God and the cause of his people, without reserving any thing for selfish purposes, and trust in God for the recompense of reward, according to his own mind and will, having full faith in his promises, that no good thing will be withheld from them that love Him and keep his commandments; and their faith will be realized.
27 But very different is the state of those who, having received the like faith, keep back a part for selfish purposes, and strive to carry along as much of the world, and of their own ways and wills, as possible, yielding a small portion of obedience through fear, lest they should be wholly cut off from all relation to the work of God: yet often murmuring at the greatness of the cross, and complaining how much harder their lot is than that of those who have freely devoted their all. Thus they measure to themselves the reward they think they ought to receive, instead of trusting in the Giver of all good.
28 Souls in such a state, shall receive all the good they have earned; but they can never be the true heirs of God, nor find an inheritance in his eternal kingdom, while in that state: Nay, though they hold on in that state through life, they will find when they come into the world of spirits, that they are not in the kingdom of God, and are not numbered with his true saints.
29 Yet, if they do not deny their faith, but yield a measure of obedience, they will not be wholly cut off; but will have just that relation to the work of God, and that gain in goodness that their obedience has obtained. But they will be left to wander without the kingdom, until they suffer the loss of all things and are willing to give up all for the least place in the camp of the saints, then will they be gathered in as those who have no claim, but are wholly dependent upon the mercy of God.
30 But those who willingly give up all in this life, and without laying out for self, depend entirely upon the justice and goodness of their Heavenly Father, are the true heirs of all that the Father hath; for they are truly laboring in his vineyard on earth; and when they have done his appointed labor, they will be received into the everlasting kingdom of God to go no more out.
31 Such will be made pillars in the temple of God, according to the order for which their Eternal Parents have created and prepared them. And their glory and reward shall be great, far, far beyond that which can enter into the heart of man, while in a mortal state. And in such souls only, is fulfilled the promise; “Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love Him.”
32 Therefore, let all souls, who are called to labor in the work of God, choose between these two states; and as they choose, so the reward will be sure, and no power can hinder it.
1 Thus saith the holy Angel, Write, Holy, holy is the Lord God, and holy is his word unto man; and this is his word at this time.
2 Hear, O earth! And again hearken all ye people, to the voice of your God, and weep and howl because of your rebellion, and because of the hardness of your hearts, and because of the blindness of your minds, wherein ye have become blinded, having eyes and see not, ears but hear not, hearts but understand not, that ye may become converted and healed of your infirmities.
3 For as my beloved Son in his first appearance, did heal the sick, even all who had faith to call upon him; yea, and the dead also, he had power to raise; So in like manner is there power in his second coming, to heal and cleanse the soul of all its infirmities, and to call forth dead souls, and to raise them from their graves of sin; and cast out all manner of evil spirits: for dominion is given him, that even the devils do tremble at his word and render him obedience.
4 And they who come to his order in faith, although possessing many foul and unclean spirits; yet if they have faith in his word, and in his order, and yield obedience thereunto, they shall be healed and made every whit whole. And although their sins be as scarlet; yet they shall become white as snow: for the mouth of the Lord hath spoken it.
5 For all power have I given him on earth and in heaven; and no spirit is so foul in man, but it is subject to him, and obedient to his word, by the faith of the possessor thereof. And whosoever cometh to him, and hath faith to believe that in his order, is sufficient power to bind and to cast out the spirit of evil, according to his faith, so shall it be unto him, and by his faith shall he be saved.
6 For without faith it is impossible to please God, the giver of faith. But faith without works, is dead, being alone, and they that receive faith in the coming of my beloved Son in his glory, and believe that in him is sufficient power given to bind and cast out all that is in opposition to the pure spirit of God, and they go to work in faith, they may remove mountains in his name.
7 Yea, they may say to the mountain of the man of sin, with his deeds, “Be thou removed and cast into the depths of the sea of the wrath of God,” and it shall be accomplished according to their faith. But faith alone will never do it, unless works are combined therewith; for faith is the gift of God; but by the mouth is confession made to salvation.
8 And thus shall man be saved by faith, that faith which will remove that from the soul by confession, which (if not removed) will be like mountains of lead to sink it from my presence.
9 And thus shall faith remove mountains, and thus shall the soul be set at liberty, and healed by the coming of the Son of God in his glory, wherein all power is given to bind every spirit, and subdue it by faith which worketh by love, and causeth the heart to become pure.
10 And what more shall I say unto you, O ye inhabitants of the earth! that ye may understand, and know the mind and will of him who hath come to do away all offenses, and again breathe forth into man that spirit of love which will kindle the flame, and renew the vital spark of never ending life.
11 O man! how long wilt thou stand out and halt, and refuse to come in and rejoice with those who make merry, who were dead and are alive, who were lost and are found!
12 How long shall I plead with you, O ye children of men, and ye refuse to hearken to my call, and come into my house, that ye may share the rich blessings of my kingdom, and partake of the supper which I the Lord have prepared for you?
13 But know ye, saith the Lord, you who continue to make excuses and stand out after repeated calls, I will reject, and ye shall never taste of my supper until I have gathered in the lame, the halt and the blind, out of the hedges and high-ways, that my house may be filled with guests.
14 And they who were first bidden, shall be last to partake of my supper; for in that they have chosen the pleasures of sin for a season, and have refused to hearken; therefore will I leave them to suffer to the end of the days of their tribulation.
15 Then if they will seek in low humiliation the crumbs that fall from my table, and gladly and thankfully receive the same, there may be a way opened for them. But the publicans and harlots shall go in before them. And thus shall the first become last, and the last first; for my house shall be filled, saith the Lord.
1 Hear ye, O my people, hearken and understand, for I have words of truth to speak unto you, saith the Holy and Eternal God of Israel; for lo! my work is hastening on, and the foundation thereof is firm and strong; and no arm can stay that work which I, the Mighty One, have set my face to perform.
2 Holy, holy is this day, saith the Almighty One, wherein I the Lord am making up my jewels, and adorning my kingdom with that brightness and glory, which never entered the heart of man to conceive, or even form an idea of. And I will never cease until I have accomplished my work, which is to make an end of sin, and bring in everlasting righteousness and purge out all offenses, and create in man a new heart and a right spirit, and form all things anew, after my image.
3 And who hath ever seen the Lord, to know his image and his stature, his form or likeness, his fashion or resemblance? For no man can see my face and live. And he that seeth my face, my form and my visage, dieth daily; and he that seeth me not, dieth not. For again I say, no man ever saw the Lord, face to face, and continued to live in sin.
4 Although Moses saw my back parts, in the order of my providence; yet did he never see my face, saith the Lord, in the order of my grace; for my face is a consuming fire; and they who meet Me face to face, must have the nature of evil consumed, root and branch, until they no longer live in sin, but die they must, to the nature of evil. And thus shall no man see my face and live.
5 This word that I spake to my servant Moses, was in both a literal and figurative sense; but its true meaning is spiritual. For Moses saw not my glory in the order of grace, nor the brightness of my countenance, neither was it given him to see: for the day had not come for man to die by the coming of the Lord; nor for the man of sin to be consumed in him, by the brightness of his countenance.
6 For as no man was suffered to come near the Mount, whereon I stood, to make known my laws, my statutes and my judgments, for that day and figurative dispensation of my grace, excepting those whom I permitted, giving strict charge to my servant to suffer none to approach, lest they be smitten by my mighty wrath, and become dead men;
7 So in this day, wherein I have, in substance, turned my face towards the children of men, and manifested myself in my brightness, in which all souls can approach Me upon the Mount, where I have placed my name and my brightness. All who are called may come.
8 Here souls can see my face, and hear my words, and learn my statutes, safely drawing near to me; but death it is to the natural and fallen part of man; but life eternal to the soul who is of Me, which can never die.
9 And this is my word, concerning those who approach Me in this day, wherein I have revealed the substance instead of the shadow. This doctrine is agreeable to the words of Christ; “Blessed are the pure in heart; for they shall see God.” None but the pure in heart can ever truly see God in the spirit. This could not take place, until the ushering in of a spiritual dispensation, which could not commence till Christ appeared; nor could be manifested in its fullness, until his second appearing.
10 And now, O my people! Ye whom I have called to come into my presence, and meet Me, face to face, think ye to approach Me, except ye become dead to sin? Shall I not destroy that natural part which is not of Me, which cannot see my face and live?
11 For I suffered not the animal part of man nor beast, to come near where I had placed my name, to reveal my laws and my statutes, excepting those who were sanctified to Me as priests and ministers of my word to the congregation. And this was my decree, that those who venture beyond the space appointed, were to suffer death.
12 And thus have I decreed in this day. Those who venture beyond this space, and come into the place which I the Lord have appointed and consecrated holy, must suffer death to the beastly and carnal nature of man. For the natural and animal body is not required as a sacrifice in this day; but the carnal life is required of all who approach Me in this day, and henceforth forever.
13 And let no one presumptuously rush into my presence, seeking to prolong that life which I have set my face to destroy; for those who defile my holy consecrated ground, with that nature which is beastly and unclean, in defiance of my decree, That no man shall see my face and live any longer in sin, but die daily thereunto: How think ye to escape my judgments?
14 Think ye to approach Me and live as a natural man, possessing a beastly nature, upon my holy consecrated ground? This can never be henceforth; for they that would become alive in Me, must die to every part, save that which cometh from Me, which is pure and holy.
15 And let all the ends of the earth hear this my word, and know that I the Lord, have turned my face in mercy and loving compassion towards the children of men. For behold the day is come, and all who seek Me shall find Me; for I will be found of them who diligently seek Me, and they shall see my face and hear my voice, and know my stature and my form, and walk in the light of my countenance, from day to day.
16 This will cause the nature of evil gradually to waste away, and the elements thereof to melt and be dissolved; for the form, visage and fashion of this world passeth away, and the lusts thereof. But my form, fashion and visage pass not away, but remain forever and ever.
17 For though the old heavens and the old earth pass away; yet my word endureth forever. And my word shall fill the whole earth, and this word shall create the new heavens and the new earth, wherein shall dwell righteousness, peace and assurance forevermore.
18 And the earth shall be filled with the glory and majesty of the God of Israel; and the God of Israel shall fill the earth, and his stature shall reach from pole to pole. And as the sun lighted the earth in a clear day; so shall my countenance lighten this new earth, which I will create, in my time, and people it in my own way.
19 And again I say, I am the God of heaven, and the God of the whole earth, and besides Me there is none; for the god of this world passeth away, and no space shall be given unto him; for I the Lord will fill the whole earth, and I will measure unto him no space in my new creation; for I will fill immensity of space with my power. And I will be all in all; for I the Lord created the heavens and the earth, for my own purposes, and for my own glory.
20 And this is my glory, that all that is of Me, shall return and be glorified in Me, and of Me, and they shall dwell in Me, and I in them; as a never-failing stream, which cannot be separated, is issuing from one Almighty and Eternal Fountain Head, which is God Himself.
21 And as a drop from the bucket goeth into the fountain, and becometh one with the stream; so are the souls of the children of men as a drop from the bucket, when redeemed from all which is not of Me, they are spirit, and return unto the fountain, and become one with the fountain, inseparably the same; though their personality remains the same as before.
22 And thus will I fill the heavens and the earth; for I the Lord, am the fountain and source of all righteousness, from whence proceedeth all good, and all good is from Me, the fountain of good; and all evil is from the fountain of evil, which floweth not with the fountain of good, neither mingleth with the waters that are pure.
23 For the fountain of evil shall be dried up, and consumed from my new creation; for one fountain shall there be, and this fountain shall extend over the whole earth, and all souls that will, shall flow unto it, and become one with it. And no one will need to say, Lo here, or lo there is the way; for one way will there be for all, and one fountain and one head.
24 For I the Lord, am as the similitude of a man, having a head and a body: for one head and one body is there in heaven. And where is my body upon the earth, and my fountain? Is it all over the earth? Nay, one head and one central fountain, one body which reacheth to the uttermost parts of the earth.
25 But my head is where I have placed my law and my commands, which govern the whole body. My body is made up of all the souls of the children of men, who ever become purified and come into my Spirit, which is my body, the spirit of love, which floweth together, as a drop from the bucket, which cannot be separated.
26 And as the head of the natural man governeth the body, and goeth whithersoever the mind carrieth him; so shall my head govern the body; and my body shall go whithersoever my head designeth it to move.
27 And where would be the propriety of a man’s body and limbs rising up and condemning the head, because it led them thus and so; and undertaking to be their own lead and guide, without the direction of the head? With equal propriety and justice might my body, which is my people, rise up and condemn my head, and say, I will be my own leader and guide, and my head shall not rule Me.
28 How would my body appear without a head? And how would it be led? Would not one member rise up against another, with equally as much propriety as did the body rise against the head? Truly, saith the Lord; and thus would the body become dissolved and divided against itself, and fall.
29 But know ye, O my people! And all the ends of the earth, that I the Lord am One; my body is one; my head is one; and my head shall lead my body; and my body shall be in subjection to my head, in all things; and every limb and faculty of my body shall move in union with my head, my one head, where I have placed my name, my laws and my statutes.
30 These shall govern, guide and direct, to the uttermost parts of the earth, the whole body, faculties and limbs, each moving in union and communion with the head. And the members of my body which offend, them will I sever from my body, and from any part in my new creation: for my body shall be perfect in its stature, form and visage, which shall no more be marred: for I will appear in my beauty, and my glory shall confound the whole earth, and fill all the heavens.
31 And this is my word, which I have caused to be written and left upon record, that all may know that I am the Lord, and besides Me there is none; one Lord and one baptism. And he that preacheth lo here, or lo there, let him be accursed, and severed from my body: for they who follow not my head, which is my lead, they are not of my body, and they have not become one with the fountain, as a drop from the bucket, which cannot be severed.
32 WORDS OF THE HOLY ANGEL TO THE WRITER. Fear not little one; for lo, I am with thee, and I will be with thee, henceforth; and this is my word and my witness, that what thou hast written, thou hast faithfully written; and I the holy Angel, will pronounce it holy, and with the seal of the Almighty will I seal it.
