corruption. But let not my children accuse those who have done it till my appointed time. For any one that has been numbered in the house of Israel, and joined in my covenant, and becometh an unbeliever, and denieth this doctrine, receive him not into your house, neither bid him Ġod-speed; for he that biddeth him God-speed is a partaker of his evil deeds. (2 John 10th verse.). "For lo! I will raise up a shepherd in the land, which shall not visit those that be cut off, neither shall seek the young one, nor heal that that is broken, nor feed that that standeth still: but he shall eat the flesh of the fat, and tear their claws in pieces. Zech. xi. 16. 'Be

I send an angel before thee, to keep thee in the way, and to bring thee into the place which I have prepared. Beware of him, and obey his voice; provoke him not, for he will not pardon your transgressions: for my name is in him. Ex. xxiii. 20, 21.

“I am straitened till my children have received the baptism of fire. And in that baptism, the blood which corrupteth the temple shall be washed away: then my son Shiloh, who is Spirit and Life, shall dwell in their temples.”

Written from John Wroe's mouth by Robert Wallace.

Devonport, 23rd of 5th month, 1832. “ TENS of thousands shall be labourers in the rearing of the building, and the raising of the walls; and yet for all this they shall not inherit it, because they say the road is too narrow.”

Written from John Wroe's mouth by Robert Wallace.

Devonport, 28th of 6th month, 1832. “THEY that choose me to be their King of kings, and Lord of lords, Satan shall bow down and serve that graft which I put upon them. Why will a man ask for that which he believes will not be given to him? But he that asks as though he were in possession of it shall possess it. He that comes

with my Spirit to the door, the door shall fly open to him.

Written from John Wroe's mouth by Joseph Churchward.

Gravesend, 22nd of 8th month, 1832. EVERY knee shall bow, and every tongue shall swear to serve me in truth and righteousness. (Isa. xlv. 23.) That soul that refuseth his natural body shall die--it shall not be a branch of the vine, nor appear in my image, or be married or sealed to me, but has come short of my glory, because they have refused that my Spirit should reign over them, and have chosen the evil workings of Satan. And such like as are still in the house of Israel shall weary themselves to get out.” Written from John Wroe's mouth by John Taylor.

Wakefield, 12th of 12th month, 1832. “Thus saith the Lord: Gather together the writings that are given thee, 0 thou man of God! that the house of Israel may send them to those that walk in my commands and laws. And Oh! thou reader of the word of God! gather thy troops, for great is thy company, 0 Israel! For thou shalt yet teach thy children peace : for thy preacher and teacher is the Redeemer—the Holy one of Israel.

“And how beautiful are his feet that preaches peace to the house of Israel, for thine enemy shall serve thee, and thine eyes shall be anointed with eye-salve; thy heart shall return unto thee a heart of flesh, that thou differ not from me, but that thou mayest be like me in all things; for the name of the Holy One of Israel is engraved on thine heart, and thou shalt utter every secret part of the Scriptures."

CHAPTER X.
Doctrinal Instructions ; from 1825 to 1832.

Ashton, 30th of 1st month, 1825. “ As the Lord has explained the Scriptures in the communications, so must the preachers hold it forth. Let no preacher say as the preachers of the Gentiles, that the corruptible body shall put on immortality, for the Lord declares they mix it: it is the mortal body that is to put on immortality, mortality not having executed its power on that body, but it being still alive. How can a living body be said to put on incorruption? It is the dead body which is gone to corruption, which is to put on incorruption.

“ The Lord created all your bodies mortal, that they might be made immortal; and he said to Adam, that the same day he ate of the forbidden tree he should surely die; but if he put forth his hand and took of the tree of life, and ate, he should live for ever. And every mortal body that tastes of the tree of life it shall live eternally—they shall put on immortality. But the mortal body that refuses the tree of life shall become a corruptible body.

“And the Lord has given you three things: They that choose the tree of life shall have it, which is immortality; they that seek the heavens, and not heaven to come on earth, but that they may die and go to the grave, their bodies shall see corruption; and at the first resurrection, which is at the coming of their Lord, their corruptible bodies shall put on incorruption; this is the second thing I have shewed thee, and I am ordered to give thee the third.

“They that believe there is no hell-no devil, but that all are equal, and their souls die the second death, their corruptible bodies shall not put on incorruption till the final resurrection, which will be when the thousand years are over, when God will judge between them and Satan; for none shall be under the power of Satan after the corruptible bodies have put on incorruption. Then will those sayings in Scripture be proved-Christ died for all, and God is the Saviour of all men, especially of them that believe, (1 Tim. iv. 10,) that they shall put on immortality."

Written from John Wroe's mouth by Henry Lees.

Sandbeds, 21st of 2nd month, 1825. “Now I tell thee who I am; I am the first man who, after giving my body to the earth, took it again, which proved me to the word of the living God.

“Now, the first is last and the last first. The first man is earthy, which became corruption, and shall put on incorruption, the second man is the Lord from heaven, whose mortal body put on immortality—he is the God of the living, but not of the dead. But Satan is the God of the dead; and when Satan is bound, the righteous who believed in Christ, and whose bodies are dead and gone to corruption, their souls shall rise, and put on incorruption.

“ And who can count the number that believed in me before I rested on the woman's seed, the body of Jesus, they shall all rise, and come with but the others who believed not in me shall not rise at that time. Did I not say to the Hebrews, Whither I

go you cannot come? which is the life immortal. But after the thousand years I will judge between them and Satan.”

Written from John Wroe's mouth by William Muff.

Ashton, 27th of 6th month, 1826. “THERE shall be a hundred and forty-four thousand whose bodies are dead, and their souls preserved in faith under the altar, to prove Satan false; for Satan was to have permission, that he also might be proved, for his word shall be found false. He shall have power to overcome at the first in all things;

me;

he shall slay prophet and prophetess, but their souls do I require at his hands."

Written from John Wroe's mouth by Henry Lees.

Ashton, 5th of 1st month, 1827. “Now, son of man! cry aloud to both Hebrew and Gentile, and to the whole creation! I will cure all that groan

and
cry

for me—that take up my cross, and bear the persecution of the world, and trust in me,

their bodies will I heal saith the Lord, to fulfil the words of the Psalmist, ‘Return, we beseech thee, O Lord of hosts : look down from heaven, and behold, and visit this vine.' Ps. lxxx. 14. Let the sighing of the prisoner come before thee; according to the greatness of thy power preserve thou those that are appointed to die.” lxxix. 11.

6 And those who seek for the salvation of their souls, but despise their bodies, the second death shall have no power over them; and the rest I will cast into prison till the final resurrection, seeing they have refused both body and soul.

“When the seventh thousand years are expired I will

open the prison doors, and judge between them and Satan. I will then heal all but one; and he who is found to be the author I will cast into a bed of affliction. I will destroy the life of blood—they shall put on incorruption; I will destroy the evil power from under heaven; I have one church wherein is no death—one throne which I will dwell inone temple, yet three-one Spirit, and I will cause it to fill the whole earth.

My temple is the man and the woman ; it is the workmanship of mine hands, and I will make the man as the bridegroom, and the woman as the bride; for we will possess all space.”

Written from John Wroe's mouth by William Tillotson.

Wakefield, 21st of 4th month, 1827. “ THEN will I cause the queen to cry to the rocks, clefts, caves, pits, wells, and all hiding-places; Give
