A Communication, given by the Spirit, for the house of Israel.--"I, JEHOVAH, gave my Law to man at first,--that if he kept it be should live, but if he brake he should die in the same day. Yet man brake my Law.
But I, not willing that the second death should reign over his soul, provided a ransom for him, in the seed of the woman, who should be born at the end of the fourth day, wbicb is the fourth thousand years, and give bis blood for the ransom of the souls of all the world.
And till the time of the fourth day should come, I gave another Law, but they brake it also ; but I, still being mer. ciful, and that I might not destroy the whole human race, I appointed them to sacrifice unto me their first-born sons, as shadows of the woman's seed; but permitted their sons to be redeemed with rams, till the appointed time that the woman's seed should come; yet they lived not a day, which is a thousand years. But if they confessed their sins, and sacrificed unto me tbe blood of the beasts wbicb I had commanded them, I preserved their souls, so that the second death bad no power over them.
Heb. 9 chap. 7 ver “ Into the second (place) went the High Priest alono once every year, not without blood, which he offered for himself, and for the errors of the people,"
And at the appointed time, I brought forth the woman's seed, according to my promise, and rested upon it, and ful. filled the Laws of the Old Testament; and gave the Laws of the Gospel, that within the sixth day they should become one, and be that obeyed them his soul and body should live. And by the woman's seed I opened the eyes of the blind, and the ears of the deaf; cleansed tbe lepers, and raised the dead, and put an end to offerings of beasts, by offering him. He offered no sacrifice for himself, but bis blood, for the errors of the people, and to raise up seed for the dead, that their corruptible bodies might receive incorruptible bodies. For I no more desired sacrifice, nor delighted in burnt offering; that they might no longer mock me by biding their sins wben they ate of the sacrifice. (Isaiah, 66 chap. 3 ver.) But that he that killed an ox should be as though he slew a man; and he that sacrificed a lamb, as if he cut off a dog's neck; and he that offered an oblation as if be offered swine's blood. So those who still continued offering of their sacri. fices I gave up, as I said to Micah. 5 chap. 3 ver. « Therefore will be give them up, until the time that she which travaileth bath brought forth : then the remnant of his bre. thren sball return unto the children of Israel."
And I shewed Paul, in Romans, ll cbap. 24 ver. That blindness in part bad happened to Israel, till the fulness of the Gentiles should come in. So all that are Israel shall be saved.
But wbosoever believed on him, I forgave all their sins without offering the blood of beasts; but his blood once of. fered, sboul I be for the ransom of tbeir souls.
And I said by him in Mark, 3 chap. 28 and 29 ver. “ All manner of sins shall be forgiven unto the sons of men, and blasphemies, wherewithsoever they shall blaspheme; but, he that shall blaspheme against the Holy Spirit bath never forgiveness, but is in danger of eternal damnation.”
And I said in lst Samuel, 2 chap. 25 ver. “If one man sin against another the judge shall judge him ; but if a man sin against the Lord who shall intreat for him.""
Jobn, 8 chap. 3-11 vers. “And the Scribes and Pharisees brought unto him a woman taken in adultery, in the very act; and they said unto bim, Moses in the law commanded us that such should be stoned, but wbat sayest thou? He said unto them, He that is without sin let him first cast a stone at ber; and they being convicted by their own con. sciences, went out one by one. And he said unto her, Woman, wbere are thine accusers ? hath no man condemned thee? She said, No man, Lord. He said unto her, Nei. ther do I condemn thee, Go and sin no more." But they not baving the fulness of my Spirit, sinned again, so I appointed them to confess to their sins, to offer unto me bread and wine, as a likeness of the offering of his blood being renewed, which if they continued to do, thougb their bodies died and became corruptible, at the appointed time, they should receive incorruptible bodies, as the angels. Hebrews, 4 chap. 8 ver. “ For if Jesus had given them rest, then would be not afterwards have spoken of another day."
Matt. 8 chap. 29 ver. Those that were possessed with devils cried out, “ Jesus, thou Son of God, Art thou come hither to torment us before the time."
But whosoever shall now sign for Satan's destruction, and for my Kingdom to be established within them, (Ezekiel, 20 chap. 37 ver.) and are willing to pass under the rod, and to be brought into the bond of my covenant, and ask for the fulness of my Spirit always to rest on them, as it rested on the woman's seed Jesus, though they have been sorcerers, adulterers, murderers, idolaters, and workers of all kinds of wickedness, their sins shall be forgiven, as tbe thief on the cross, or the harlot, and buried in the deep, and remembered no more ; for he that bas my Spirit will forsake them.

(Isaiah, 11 chap. Il ver.) As I caused Jesus, who was the root of Jesse, to stand an ensign to the Gentiles, and tbey sought to him, and their rest was glorious : so now have I set iny hand again the second time, to recover the remnant of my people Israel ; and my Spirit sball stand as an ensign for them, to finish the works of my bands.
(2 Peter, 1 chap, 19 ver.) And I have given you a more sure word of prophecy, whereunto ye sball do well if ye take heed, as unto a light that shineth in a dark place, un. til the day dawn, and tbe day-star arise in your hearts. Viz. The life of the Law.
And they sball fulfil my Law, and the rigbteousness thereof, and will not need any other sacrifice, or likeness thereof, as a renewal of the sacrifice of the woman's seed.
For I delight not to be mocked with sacrifices, of either animals or the blood of animals, or bread, or wine, either by Hebrew or Gentile. For I will fulfil the words wbich I caused to be written by David.
51 st Psalm, 16 and 17 verses.“ For thou desirest not sacrifice, else would I give it: thou delightest not in burnta offering. The sacrifices of God, are a broken spirit: a bro. ken and a contrite heart, O God, thou wilt not despise."
And those tbat still go on taking the sacrament of bread and wine, after they bave joined this covenant, shall be given up as the Hebrews were.
For Jesus, the woman's seed, kept the laws of the Old Testament, and then laid down his body, by giving the life of the old world, wbich is the blood ; and my Spirit which abode on him while he fulfilled the law, then returned, and raised it up out of the sepulchre, and became the life of it, which gave them a proof that the laws were given of me. That afterwards the seed of man, who should ask for my Spirit, and receive it, and should keep them as he did, who should be called the house of Israel, the bride; that their bodies should be redeemed without giving the blood, but it should be made flesh; which fulfils the words which I spake by Jesus, in John, 14 chap. 12 ver. “He that believeth on me, Greater works than these shall he do." He shall be changed into the image of me, in the twinkling of an eye. Their bodies shall not die, nor see corruption, but the body of the woman's seed once offer. ed, shall stand for their bodies, and they shall be made both earthly and beavenly; their bodies becoming his body, I being the life of them, immortal; the man and the woman, and him, being three persons, and the life of them ono God.
John, 10 chap. 34 ver. “Jesus said Is it not written in your laws, I said, Ye are gods." For ye live by the blood, and are fallen from the life of me; but the body of the woman's seed, was given that ye might have life eternal.
(Genesis, 49 cbap. 10 ver.) The promise of the sceptre was unto Judah, but they obtained not, but the temporal sceptre ; for they refused him wbo would have given them the spiritual sceptre; for he said, The flesh profited them nothing, unless it was quickened by the Spirit; and when they had put him to death, by the temporal sceptre, he fulfilled his own words, his flesh had profited them nothing, unless it had been quickened.
