For in the end it will be seen,
That Paul and all such like have been,
Both cowardly and fearful men ;
But those who fight the prize shall gain.
Those who are willing for to fight,
Shall all be clothed in armour bright ;
And shall be lifted up on high,
And shall my standard bearers be.
They in my offices shall stand-
They shall my chosen men command ;
Array'd in clothes of scarlet bright,
Clear as the crystal stone and white.
They then in songs of grace shall break,
And in sweet heav'nly raptures speak ;
My heav'nly rapturous joys divine,
Shall in their eyes and faces shine.
The heav'nly songs which I will give,
They all shall sing and ever live ;
Their charms can ne'er be known or told,
Till all eternity unfold.
The rights of those of heav'nly birth,
Are more than men who're born of earth;
Turn back and see the shadows clear,
The end of shadows now is here.
The heav'nly substance shining bright,
Appears in raiment clean and white;
The types and shadows first appear,
But sing, the substance now is here.
For I, my chosen clothed in white,
Must bring unto their perfect sight,
Array'd in white and scarlet hue,
And bring my glory to their view.
The saints their beautious form behold,
And all their rapturous joys unfold ;
The nature of their bones admire,
And flesh, which do their bones attire.
Their Alesh appears a glitt'ring white,
Resembling the celestial light ;
And as on pinions of a dove,
They fly on wings of heav'nly love.

Ashton, 1st of 2nd month, 1830. 66 WHY does a sower sow seed he has no faith that it will grow? If he sows it, having no faith, it is given to strangers at the reaping thereof; but when the stranger comes to reap it, the children rise up and

say it is our father's inheritance, and we will possess it. And I, the Lord, answer the children; the strangers shall not inherit it, but the children shall dwell in it, and afterwards it shall be put within them. These are the bones of the whole house of Israel, who once were dead in the eyes of the unbeliever, but now live.” Ezek. xxxvii. 11.

Written from John Wroe's mouth by William Tillotson.

Ashton, 2nd of 9th month, 1830. “My children are like those who were in the days of old: the time is come that they shall stone thee, and say my word delayeth—there is no matter in it. They say they believe, but they wait not for that which they say they believe, and my words are dried up in them; and "blindness has fallen upon them, because they said they saw, when they saw not, and heard, when they heard not. The hearts of the world shall now be against them for a time, because of their nakedness, which I have discovered in my secret chamber.

My Spirit shall now fight with those that have fought against me, because of my word being dead to their understanding. But will my word fight with the dead? Nay, but because they say they live, and are not dead. So now it shall be proved whether it is my word or they that live; their weapons will I burn and destroy.

Written from John Wroe's mouth by William Tillotson.

Ashton, 4th of 9th month, 1830. “I WILL not mourn until I have driven those out which mourn in the wrath of their hearts, who are lukewarm, but will yet fight. When the day appeared they refused to see the sun; and my word became no proof unto them because of their richesbecause it was their god, lest they should be brought to desolation.”

Written from John Wroe's mouth by William Tillotson.

Gravesend, 20th of 9th month, 1830. “ HEAR, O house of Israel! I am visiting thee, if thou wilt take such as I hand down unto thee; but if thou refusest it there are the prophets of the Gentiles and of the Hebrews, which are as Balak’s prophets."

Written from John Wroe's mouth by John Taylor.

Bristol, 13th of 10th month, 1830. “The more my word is fulfilled thé more shall it drive out those who are not of the household of Joseph. When my Spirit is going over the house of Israel, it overshadows and attracts many, so that many will join who are not of my household, and nothing can drive them out but the fulfilment of

my word.

Bristol, 16th of 10th month, 1830. “SATAN has got permission to go

forth the bodies, and to make war among them, and war in their houses; but the word, by my Spirit, shall subdue him, and he shall go back, and my people shall be ashamed. And he that teareth my word in pieces shall become like the fig-tree; and he that setteth my time at a distance, lo! when I come in flames of fire, claiming my own, though he said he was once clean, he shall still be without a wedding garment, and my blood shall be upon him. This is

voice." Written from John Wroe's mouth by William Tillotson.

Huddersfield, 30th of 10th month, 1830. “HE that says thou art visited by two spirits, and one from Satan, to lead the house of Israel astray, shall not be gathered to my people in my granary, nor come within my vineyard, even to him who sorts my word, as the heathen of the Hebrews and Gentiles do.”

Wakefield, 18th of 1st month, 1831. “He that hath not entered into my covenant feedeth not on my Spirit—his body must die in that rebellious house; and he who has condemned after he has believed in it, his soul, spirit, and natural body shall be hid from that city which I will build, which is new Jerusalem.”

Written from John Wroe's mouth by William Muff.

Sandal, 5th of 2nd month, 1831. “THINKEST thou that all upon whom my Spirit shineth are Israel ? But whom my Spirit attracts it shall gather; but that bone upon which it rests shall fulfil the law and gospel. Behold the trees which are laden with shell fruit! Gather the fruit, and put it under a press, that the substance may appear; and thou shalt say though they seem to be all fruit, there is but few kernels; so will Israel be in the end.

Go thou into a corn-field that is ready for the sickle, but when thou comest to reap it it is blasted; so shall Israel seem in the eyes of the world; but as they know not what is within, so shall they know not my people Israel."

Written from John Wroe's mouth by James Shand.

Sheffield, 1st of 3rd month, 1831. “THEY gather themselves together as committees, and as great men—as the house of Israel, and say let us consult together, for we see such and such evils in the house of Israel ; let us try to stop them,

R

and let us make a law to bind the enemy. They then write a petition, and call me Most Holy and Righteous Father, their everlasting Counsellor and Prince. Thou receivest this at their hands—thou bringest it before me, and I know their hearts, and the depth of the wicked one, and their craft, that their fine language may

be

seen, and honoured among their brethren; I grant them their petition.

“I will now tell the house of Israel what they are like; they are like men who are shepherds of many cattle, who said we will increase our number: they are all with young, and we know not the time when they gendered; we will now speak unto our keepers, and we will give them a medicine to help them to deliver their young, that our flock may increase. So the committee brought forth their medicine, which was the law which their masters had prepared; when the cattle delivered up their young, the young were all dead—there was not one living calf among them.

“ So is the wisdom of the heads of the house of Israel: they make laws—they plan plans, and establish acts, that their righteousness may be seen one of another, and they tempt me to grant them those things which they understand not.

“Now, I will shew thee Israel and their seed, and their followers: when I send my word or laws unto them, and they understand not the meaning of it, they will come unto my servant and say there is such a law that we understand not the meaning of; we hope the Lord will give us power to reign over them, and not they reign over us; though we have been servants unto them, yet we believe a time will come when they will serve us; for the graft of the vine, whom we serve, has overcome, and made a shew of them openly, and will overcome in us, and make a shew a second time openly to the world. We will not tempt the Lord for his laws before we are prepared.

“This shall be the language of all committees
