And thus we can plainly discern,
that after a people have been once enlightened by the Spirit of God,
and have had great knowledge of things pertaining to righteousness,
and then have fallen away into sin and transgression,
they become more hardened, and thus their state becomes worse ...
Than though they had never known these things..
Now, as I said concerning faith
that it was not a perfect knowledge ...even so it is with my words.
Ye cannot know of their surety at first, unto perfection,
any more than faith is a perfect knowledge.
But behold, ...if ye will awake and arouse your faculties,
even to an experiment upon my words, and exercise a particle of faith,
Yea, even if ye can no more than desire to believe,
let this desire work in you, ...
even until ye believe in a manner ,that ye can give place for a portion of my words.
Into the Light
Though the tempest rage
And our lives become fear
The light inside you can not die
For the word of the Lord is truth
And whatsoever is truth... Is light,
And whatsoever is light... is Spirit, Even… The Spirit of Jesus Christ.
And the Spirit giveth light to every man, that cometh into the world;
And the Spirit enlighteneth every man through the world,
That hearkeneth to the voice of the Spirit.
And every one that hearkeneth to the voice of the Spirit
Cometh unto God, even the Father.
Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying,
I am the light of the world:
he that followeth me... shall not walk in darkness,
But shall have the light of life.
Then said they unto him, Where is thy Father? Jesus answered,
Ye neither know me, nor my Father:..... if ye had known me,..!
Ye should have known my Father also!
Then said Jesus again unto them,
I go my way, and ye shall seek me, and shall die in your sins:
whither I go, ye cannot come.
Then said the Jews, Will he kill himself? ....because he saith, Whither I go, ye cannot come.
And he said unto them,
Ye are from beneath; I am from above: ye are of this world; I am not of this world.
I said therefore unto you, that ye shall die in your sins:
for if ye believe not... that I am he,.... Ye shall die in your sins sins.
