up thy sons and daughters, which are earth, and let them come forth before the king; and they shall come forth and fall down before him; and he shall say,

"Ye shall live—the redeemed shall take them to themselves for servants. Then they shall bring forth abundance of children during their mortal lives, which is the blood, through the attraction of their spirits, that the streets may be full of boys and girls; for then there shall not be an old man which hath not filled his days. And from the days of Adam, he that dies the death of repentance there are mine angels, and my sword to protect him; but he that dies the death of the wicked, there is Satan and his angels to protect him in wickedness ; for as he delighted himself in wickedness, so shall it be to him till the final resurrection; and he that delighteth himself in righteousness, so shall it be to him till the first resurrection."

Written from John Wroe's mouth by William Tillotson.

Sunderland, 21st of 7th month, 1827. “TWICE have I been amongst my people, but no man saw my face but in vision.

The first time; And the angel of the Lord appeared unto him in a flame of fire, out of the midst of a bush; and he looked, and behold! the bush burned with fire, and the bush was not consumed. And when the Lord saw that he turned aside to see; God called unto him out of the midst of the bush, and said, Moses, Moses; he said Here am I. And he said, Draw not nigh and hither; put off thy shoes from off thy feet, for the place whereon thou standest is holy ground.” Exod. iii. 3–5. “And it came to pass on the third day in the morning, that there were thunders and lightnings, and a thick cloud upon the mount, and the voice of a trumpet exceeding loud, so that all the people that were in the camp trembled. And Moses brought the people out of the camp to meet with God. And mount Sinai was altogether on a smoke, and the whole mount quaked. And the voice of the trumpet sounded long, and waxed louder and louder. And the Lord came down upon mount Sinai, on the top of the mount. xix. 16-20. And when the people saw it, they removed and stood afar off. And they said unto Moses, Speak thou with us,

and we will hear; but let not God speak with us lest we die.'. xx. 18, 19.

“ The second time; when I overshadowed the woman, and caused her seed to become flesh, blood, and bone, and caused blood to be the life of it through the attraction of the Spirit of Jesus, and at the age of thirty years I rested on it, that each ten years should stand typical of one generation, that at the expiration of three generations I would turn my hand a second time, and cause my Spirit to rest upon those who inquired to be made true Israelites, that they might be free from guile, by them dwelling in my Spirit, keeping them from the evil, that they obey the law and gospel that it be then put within them.

“ They saw me, but they believed me not before I had risen, and it was then as the waters of Noah unto them-it was too late, so their bodies have all died down unto this day. So when I come again, they that knew my word and did it not, shall be brought before me, that they be slain. So now declare these words in the ears of the world that they shall not see my face, nor know of me, till they see me come in my glory; then they shall be afraid, as they were in the days of Moses. And those that knew not my decree shall flee into the rocks and holes of the earth, and shall be sheltered from the fire, that the Scriptures be fulfilled.”

Sunderland, 23rd of 7th month, 1827. : “WHEN man fell by disobedience, I sware in my wrath that that body which had become as the animal's body should not enter into my rest. I fixed a flaming sword to keep the way of the tree of life till the appointed time, lest they should eat of it before that time. But divided the race of man into time and times, three days, which are three generations, two thousand years in each generation; and I set three open doors before the first Adam's seed, one in each generation, that one should enter in to shew them the way of the tree of life; one for Enoch, one for Elias, and one for Jesus, the woman's seed.

“ The first door was before the flood: And God said unto Cain, If thou doest well, shalt thou not be accepted? And if thou doest not well, sin lieth at the door. Then began men to call upon the name of the Lord. Gen. iv. 7, 26. And they offered sacrifices; and Enoch entered in and put on immortality by his spirit, which had attracted his blood to be his life, being put within him, making him a perfect man; then the door was shut till the end of that dispensation. But he that repented and shewed obedience by sacrifices, his soul was preserved under the altar till the first resurrection, that he might then receive an incorruptible body and be as the angels.

The second door was that which was given unto Moses, and Elijah entered in, and put on immortality, and then the door was shut; but he that repented and shewed obedience by sacrifices, his soul should be preserved under the altar till the first resurrection, that he then might receive a body as the angels.

“The third door is the gospel. And Michael with the Spirit of God entered into the temple, which the angel named Jesus, and then the door was shut; but he that repented and shewed his obedience by baptism of water, and eating bread and drinking wine, in remembrance of the woman's seed, whose blood was shed for the remission of the sins of all men; though his body died, his soul should be preserved alive under the altar till the first resurrection, and then he should receive a body as the angels. Go ye, therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost. Matt. xxviii. 19. And whosoever observes and obeys this, the door shall be thrown open to him, and he shall put on immortality.”

Leith, 8th of 8th month, 1827. “THERE was angel in heaven who presented himself before me, whose delight was to make war; and when he was condemned in heaven to go unto the earth he said I will be king of the earth. I placed man the head of my creation; I saw Adam was alone, and I took a rib out of that which was earthly, and made him an helpmate; I granted him (whose delight was to make war,) to be king of the earth for 6,000 years if he prevailed; and those whom I had 'made of the earth he should have power to return their bodies to the earth; but those who were made heavenly, the blood of their hearts being washed away, which should cause them to have a new heart should overcome him. "A new heart also will I give you, and a new Spirit will I put within you, and I will take away the stony heart out of your flesh, and I will give you a heart of flesh. Ezek. xxxvi. 26. But if Satan prevailed not, he for whom I created the earth should

possess

it. Satan tempted the woman with the desire to be wise, and prevailed over her and man. I then went unto Adam, and asked him what he had done; he said, The woman whom thou gavest to be with me, she gave me of the tree, and I did eat. I then went unto the woman, and asked her what she had done; she said, “The serpent beguiled me, and I did eat. And I said I will now see the works of man, that my soul may be satisfied, and I will try and prove him, and I will rest on the seed of the woman,

and become like unto them, and shew them my ways, and lead them into the truth of my holiness: and when Satan has destroyed that which is earthly, which is the life of the world, I will take the tree of life, and shew it in the sight of all the heathen.

“I returned unto Adam, and said, 0 Adam! hear thy sentence! Because thou hast not hearkened unto my voice, but unto thy wife, cursed is the ground for thy sake; thorns, briers, weeds, and insects shall it bring forth to destroy the works of thine hands; for it is cursed for the sake of thy soul, that it

may

be preserved. “Oh, woman! hear thy sentence! If thou hadst hearkened unto my command, and not given unto man the fruit of the womb of thy garden till the sixth day, that he might have then put on immortality, Satan had had no part in thee; but because thou hast laid the charge on Satan, I will shew all thy children their ways, and teach them my laws, statutes, and judgments, that they shall observe and do. And after that shall Satan rise and bruise the heel of thy seed, and I will dwell within thy seed, and make it my temple, and be the life of it. And I will yet also return to thee again, and put my seed within thee a second time, and it shall dwell in thy seed, and I will make a new creature in thee, and take it from thy side, as I took it from man, and we will receive it unto us until thou hast given up the rest of thy seed to make the new earth. This did I promise thee at first, and it was recorded in your Scriptures; but when Í baptized the world with water, I also withdrew it from your presence, that I might see what would become of man,

but I have now revealed it.

“I then turned unto Satan, and said what is this that thou hast done? Because thou hast done this thing I will put enmity between thee and the woman, whom thou hast deceived; thou shall bruise the heel of the woman's seed, yet will I put a double enmity between thee and her seed, in whom I will dwell. Though thou art more subtle than any beast of the field, and hast power to take all the beasts of
