Awake Those Who Live In Forms
         I will pray with the Spirit, and I will pray with the understanding also.         
         (I Cor. 14:15)

  Awake, awake all people every where who live in forms, see what ye possess, not having the eternal spirit that gave forth the scriptures; all your formal prayers, formal preaching, formal singing, will be found as the chaff, which is for the unquenchable fire; for Christ is risen, the true light shines . . .

Sing Praises With Understanding

Faith Which Giveth Victory
         But without faith it is impossible to please him.         
         (Heb. 11:6)

  There is one faith which justifeth and purifieth the heart, which is the gift of God, which giveth victory over all that which hath separated man from God, by which faith man hath again access to God, and in which faith he pleases God, and in this faith is the unity of the church....

Another Matter to Die With Christ
         For if we be dead with him, we shall also live with him.         
         (II Timothy 2:11)

Our Heavenly Bread
         For the bread of God is he which cometh down from heaven, and giveth life unto the world.         
         (John 6:33)

  So his heavenly flesh is the saints' daily food and bread from heaven; and they that deny the heavenly man, Christ Jesus, that died and suffered without the gates of Jerusalem...his sufferings, death, and resurrection, deny their own food, and their own heavenly bread...
  (George Fox)

The Lord Of All
         The Lord is good to all: and his tender mercies are over all his works.         
         (Psalm 145:9)

  The Lord God of heaven and earth, who is the creator and maker of all things therein, which created and made all things good; so he is the great Lord of all, both of things in heaven, and things in the earth, and therefore all things are to be subject to the great Lord, especially man and woman, whom he made in his own likeness and image.

Right to the Tree of Life
         To him that overcometh will I give to eat of the tree of life.         
         (Rev. 2:7)

  So all must be baptized with the baptism of Christ, with fire and the Holy Ghost; and all their disobedience, transgression, sin and corruption, and their chaff must be plunged down and burnt up by the baptism of Christ, before they can come into the paradise of God, and have right to eat of the tree of life.
  (George Fox)

Third Month 11, 2023.

Scriptures, Promises, Prophecies
         That we through patience and comfort of the scriptures might have hope.         
         (Rom. 15:4)

  So all people's applying scriptures, or promises, or prophecies, whilst they grieve God's good spirit in their hearts, and hate his light that shines there, and walk despitefully against the spirit of grace, and so disobey the voice and command of God and Christ, which cannot have comfort of God, nor Christ, nor the scriptures, nor the promises nor prophecies of them. But they that walk in the light, and spirit and grace, and the gospel, they have the comfort of God and Christ, and the prophecies and promises...

Christ Is the Purger of the Heart
         John said, "He.         
         (Christ) must increase, but I must decrease

So What Door Is This?
         Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him and he with me.         
         (Rev. 3:20)

  So what door is this that Christ knocks at? is it not the door of your hearts, minds, and souls...but how can you sup with Christ, and he with you, the heavenly supper, except you hear his voice, and open the door of your hearts, and minds, and souls, and let him in, by turning from the darkness to the light, and from the power of Satan unto God.....

         (Isaiah 61:1)

  The Lord's arm and power did preserve me; though many times I was in danger of my life, and very often cast into dungeons and prisons, and hailed before magistrates. But all things did work together for good: and the more I was cast into outward prisons, the more people come out of their spiritual and inward prison (through the preaching of the gospel).

A Ruling Christ
         And let the peace of God rule in your hearts.

  ....the children of God who are conceived and begotten of him, are not of this world, neither do they mind only the things of this world, but the things which are eternal. But the children of this world do mostly mind the external things and their love is in them, and the other live by faith.

The Peacemaker Hath the Kingdom
         Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God.         
         (Matthew 5:9)

  That which is set up by the sword, is held up by the sword; and that which is set up by spiritual weapons, is held up by spiritual weapons, and not by carnal weapons. The peacemaker hath the Kingdom, and is in it; and hath the dominion over the peace-breaker, to calm him in the power of God.
