We said in Part 1 that the Great Tribulation begins with the recovery of the Ark of the Covenant. The message to be preached will be as Jesus said: “This gospel of the Kingdom shall be preached in the whole … Continue reading
There shall be a total, full redemption of Christ. This is a hidden mystery not to be revealed, or understood, without the revelation of the Holy Ghost. The Holy Spirit is at hand to reveal the same unto all holy seekers and loving inquirers. The completion of such redemption is withheld and abstracted by the seals of revelation. Wherefore, as the Spirit of God shall open seal after seal, so shall this redemption come to be revealed, both particularly and universally.
In the gradual opening of the mystery of redemption in Christ does consist the unsearchable wisdom of God, which will continually reveal new and fresh things to the worthy seeker.
Before the Ark of Testimony shall be opened before the end of the age, the Living Testimony, herein contained, shall be unsealed. The Presence of the Divine Ark will constitute the life of this Virgin Church. Wherever the Body is, there must be, of necessity, the Divine Ark. Along with the unsealing of the Living Testimony, with the Ark of God, must begin the promulgation of the everlasting gospel of the Kingdom. The proclamation of this Testimony will be as a sounding of a trumpet to alarm the nations and peoples of professed Christendom.
Authority shall be given by Christ to the putting to an end all controversy concerning the True Church that is born of the New Jerusalem Mother. His decision will be the actual sealing of the Body of Christ with the Name of God, giving them commission to act by the same authority. This new Name will distinguish them from the 7,000 names of Babylon. The election and preparation of this Virgin Church is to be after a secret and hidden manner even as David, in his ministry, was chosen and anointed by the prophet of the Lord, yet was not admitted to the outward profession of the kingdom for a considerable time afterward. The stem of David, a Virgin Church which has known nothing of man or human constitution is to be born. It will require some time for it to get out of the minority and arrive at the full, mature age.
The birth of this Virgin Church was typified by John’s vision where the Great Wonder appeared in Heaven, bringing forth the first born that was caught up to the Throne of God. For, as the Virgin Woman brought forth Christ after the flesh, so shall the first born bring forth the Virgin Church after the Spirit, who shall be endowed with the seven spirits of God. This Church so brought forth and sealed with the mark of Divine authority, will have no bonds of impositions; but the holy unction and anointing among these new born spirits will be all in all. There is not this day (the year 1619) visible upon the earth such a church. All profession has been found light when weighed in the balances. Therefore, they are all rejected by the Supreme Judge, which rejection will be for this cause, that out of them may come a new and perfect, glorious Church. Then the glory of God and the Lamb, shall so rest upon this typical tabernacle, that it shall be called the Tabernacle of Wisdom.
Although it is not now known in visibility, yet it shall be seen as coming out of the wilderness within a short time. Then it will go on to multiply and propagate itself universally, not only in the number of the firstborn (144,000), but also to the remnant of the seed, against whom the dragon will make war continually. Wherefore, the spirit of David shall revive in the Church, and especially in some elect members of it, as the blossoming root. These will have authority and power given to them to overcome the dragon and his angels, even as David overcame the Philistine army.
This will be the standing up of the great Prince Michael, and it will be as the appearing of Moses against Pharaoh, in order that the chosen seed may be brought out of hard servitude. Egypt doth figure in this servile creation under which Abraham’s seed does groan. But a prophet, and a most prophetical generation, will the Most High God raise up, who shall deliver His people by force of spiritual arms, for which there must be raised up certain head powers to bear the first office, who are persons in favor with God, whose dread and fear shall fall upon all nations, visible and invisible, because of the mighty acting power of the Holy Ghost, which shall rest upon them. For Christ will literally appear to some chosen vessels, to bring into the promised land the full, new creation state.
Thus, Moses, Joshua and Aaron may be considered types of some upon whom the same spirit will come, yet in greater proportion, whereby they shall make way for the ransomed to return to Mount Zion.
But none shall stand under God but those who have become tried stones, after the pattern and similitude of Christ. This will be a fiery trial through which only a few will be able to pass or bear up in it. Whereby the waiters for this visible breaking forth are strictly charged to hold fast and wait together in pure love. These trials will be of absolute necessity for the clearing away of all remaining infirmities of the natural mind, and the burning of all wood, hay and stubble, for nothing must remain in the fire, for as a refiner shall He purify the sons of the Kingdom.
There will be some who will be fully redeemed, being clothed upon with a priestly garment after the order of Melchizedek. This will qualify them for governing authority. Therefore, it is required on their part to suffer the spirit of burning and fanning of the fiery breath, searching every part within, until they arrive at a fixed body, from whence the wonders of God will flow out.
Upon this body will be the fixation of urim and thummin that is the portion of the Melchizedek priesthood, whose descent is not counted in the genealogy which is the new creation. Hence, these priests will have a deep, inward search and Divine insight into the secret things of Deity. They will be able to prophesy in a clear ground, not darkly or enigmatically, for they will know what is couched in the first originality of all beings in the eternal ante-type of nature. They will be able to bring them forth according to Divine counsel and ordination.
The Lord swears in truth and righteousness that from Abraham’s line, according to the Spirit, there shall arise a holy seed, produced and manifested in the last age. The mighty spirit of Cyrus is appointed to lay the foundation of this Third Temple and support it in building. There are characteristics and marks whereby the pure Virgin Church shall be known and distinguished from all others that are low, false and counterfeit.
There must be a manifestation of the Spirit, to edify and raise up this Church, whereby bringing Heaven down upon earth and representing here the New Jerusalem State, in order to which spirits are thus begotten and born of God, and ascending to the New Jerusalem above, where their Head in majesty doth reign. None but those who have ascended and received His glory, can descend and communicate the same, being thereby His representatives upon earth and subordinate priests under Him now. He has ascended and become glorified, has made Himself, as it were our debtor. Consequently, He will not be lacking in qualifying and furnishing certain high and principal agents or instruments who shall be most humble and as little regarded as David was, whom He will dignify with honor and priestly sovereignty, for drawing to them the scattered flocks and gathering them into one fold, out of all the nations.
Therefore, there should be a holy emulation stirred up among the bands of believers, that they may be of the first fruits unto Him that is risen from the dead, and so be made principal agents for Him and with Him, that they may be, if possible, of the number of the first born of the New Jerusalem Mother.
All true waiters of His Kingdom Spirit, under whatsoever profession they may be, ought to be numbered among the Virgin Spirits to whom this message appertains. Be watchful and quicken your pace.
