so they would appear at my Coming, in might, ma jesty, and power; when I come to rend the veil of Satan's temple asunder, that he hath set up in the hearts of men, but then they will be rended asunder, and then will those whose names are written in the book for me to reign over all and claim the Kingdom for my own, awake to their endless joy and happiness, to see the Glory of my Reign, while those that mocked and despised it will awake to their shame and confusion to go with their master they stood up for, whose kingdom they wished to have remained and with him they must remain till the final day of judgment; but the righteous will shine as the sun in the firmament.

Now I shall come to those who stood by the river; the one on the one side of the bank, the other on the other side of the bank. "And

XII DanielI heard the man that was clothed in linen, which was upon the waters of the river, when he held up his right hand and his left hand unto Heaven, and sware by him that liveth for ever, that it shall be for a time, times, and an half; and when he shall have accomplished to scatter the power of the holy people, all these things shall be finished."-Now I shall tell thee the meaning of the River and the Bank, that one stood on the one side, and the other stood on the other the River is my Word that is fixed, and my Promise which I have made, that shall now run as a river of joy and peace to all true believers. The Bank is the bounds that is fixed for men and devils; for all men shall know and see Satan's bounds are now fixed, as the book is sealed up for the end ; and so it shall come' to men and devils; for I will now lift them up on my right hand, and on my left; the works of my hands that I created in man shall now be lifted up. The Jews that stand on one side of the bank, that are looking for the fulfilment of the Law of God, and the Promises made to the Prophets; and the Gentiles that stand on the other fide of the bank, looking for the fulfilment of the Gospel

and the Coming of their LORD. And now they shall both be lifted up, and come into one current stream together; and their peace shall flow as a river, and their joy as a mighty stream; for the Power of theHoly People shall be accomplished, to be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might; and some will be scattered in distant nations to awaken and convince them, and call them to the knowledge of the Bible, that all may come to the knowledge of the Lord, and be wishing for the KINGDOM of CHRIST, when I have made them sick with smiting. them, and made them desolate because of their sins.. Then will the living lay it to heart and return to give GLORY to GOD; for then cometh the end, perfect like the book that is sealed up; therefore I told thee Daniel's words were closed till the time of the end.. Then all men must know, they must be unclosed and be made known, and proved that they were. sealed up until the time of the end. And what the end shall be, now compare Daniel's visions with the visions of St. John in the Revelations, and see how they stand together, to be revealed and fulfilled in His appointed time.-Rev. ch. 21. And I John saw the holy city, the new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of Heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end :-I will give him that is athirst of the fountain of the water of life. Rev. ch. 22.-And he shewed me a pure river of water of life, clear as crystal, proceeding out of the throne of God and the Lamb and there was a tree of life bearing twelve manner of fruits, which was for the healing of the nations, and there shall be no more curse :-The Spirit and the Bride say come, and let him that is athirst come, and whomsoever will let him take of the water of life freely.




- November 1803, I was ordered to open my Bible -which was at the 1st Chapter of Ecclesiastes and the 9th Verse:-"The thing which hath been, it is that which shall be done: and that which is done is that which shall be, and there is no new thing under the sun."

This Chapter appeared to me to have no meaning, but I was answered in the following manner-"Simple as this Chapter appeareth to thee, it was the wisDOM OF THE LORD, that, was given to Solomon ; but thou canst not understand it without MY SPIRIT; and now I will answer thee: The thing which hath been, is that which is now done. Now ask mankind if this is a new thing, for the Woman to condemn the Serpent, which is the Devil? Did she not do it in the Creation? and now she hath done it again. Is it a new thing for a Woman to deliver her People did not Esther do it? did not Judith do it? and was it not a Woman that nailed Sisera to the ground? But by whose power do you judge it was done? was it by MY Power, making the Woman an instrument in My Hand? or was it in the Women's power to do it of themselves? Men must own these wondrous works were never done by Women without my strength and protection: Then why do ye marvel if I give this Woman to nail Satan to the ground by MY POWER, to cut off his head; that meaneth his Power from the Sons of Men; and the gallows he hath built for Man, I shall cause him to hang thereon. Could I have not struck Haman dead? Could I not have slain Holophernes in the battle? Could I have caused Sisera's death no other way but by the hands of a Woman? did I do it any other way but by the hands of a Woman? O, ye simple sons of men! who washed my feet with their tears? who poured the Ointment on my Head? was I not anointed by the Woman with the MOST PRECIOUS OINTMENT? Then what new thing is there now

done? Have not all these things been already done by Women-your Foes destroyed, your People freed, your SAVIOUR'S HEAD anointed, and Satan condemned by Women? Then that which hath been done, must be now done: Satan cast, Man. freed, and MY HEAD anointed by a Woman.

As she th' anointed me now here
To be your great Deliverer;

To be your Captain, Prince, and King,
And bring my glorious Kingdom down,
That is, in power upon this Earth;
You know I told you at my death,
Or when my death was drawing near,
The Woman's Ointment did appear,
That she did pour upon my HEAD.
The COSTLY OINTMENT then was laid,
That men at first in her did blame,
With indignation did condemn,
And said the thing was done to waste,
And yet, to me they Love profess'd.
But how did I reprove them all!
And said, her Love on ME should fall;
For a GOOD WORK on ME she'd wrought,
A work that man had never thought,
Why she did so anoint My head;
And for my funeral then I said,
The Ointment was prepar'd for ME,
To rise again her KING to be!
And a good work she'd done for all,
For me to conquer death and hell:'
For as the work I said was GOOD,
It must by all be understood,
It never was the work of Men;
For they the Woman did condemn,
Before I took the Woman's part;
For Satan levell'd with his dart
The indignation then in Man;-
Because the Woman they condemn'd,
To see her so anoint my head.
But know, my answer what I said,
The very thing which she had done
Throughout all nations should be known:
Where'er my Gospel did appear.
And perfect so, I tell you here,

The PERFECT OINTMENT now is come,
And the good work must now be known;

For she's anointed ME your KING;

And indignation strong is seen

In great professors to appear.
But now to all I'll answer here:

Her ointment shall for ever stand;

I'll be the KING in every land:
And so the SEAL, I say, must go→

The distant lands these things must know;

And what the Woman hath begun,
I tell you must be end'd by Man;
With the same prayer that she did make,
For her petition I'll not break,
But to it I will ever stand,

And be the KING in every land;
That is, MY KINGDOM shall appear;
And now her foes may stand in fear,
As to the root the axe she 'th laid.
Therefore her friends can't be afraid;
For I will conquer like her word,

And bring MY KINGDOM as she 'th pray'd;
And cast the root that caus'd her fall.
For now I tell you, one and all,

There's nothing new that hath been done;
It was at first the Woman's plan
To cast the blame where first it laid;
And then I said I'd bruise his head.
Now can you prove this thing is new?
No! you must own my words are true;
And a good work the Woman wrought-
And are these words by you forgot?
Then now, I bid you call to mind
What's left on record for mankind;
And then the Woman you must see
Satan condemn'd, and honour'd me;
Then 'tis MY foes must her condemn:
For who can answer as a man,
That doth profess to be my friend?
Then as a friend let him contend,
And then I'll answer thee again."

Now I shall assign my reasons to the world why I am ordered to put in print the Names of the Ministers of Exeter, into whose hands the Letters were put, of the Events of these Years-When I was at Stockton-upon Tees in December last, 1803, I was repeating in a large company the truths that I have here mentioned, three Methodist Preachers were present, who had the confidence to tell me I had told nothing but lies-I mentioned to them my friends in Exeter, who had copied the letters; and the gentlemen who wrote to the clergy, to enquire into the truth, to whom they might appeal. But they answered, myself and friends were all Liars; for they would not believe them, as they might have ends to deceive the world. Now to prove the truth to the world, the Lord hath commanded me to put in print the Names of the Ministers and the places of their abode, that
