not unto you that spirit, then you may know that  it is not of God:
28 And it shall be given unto you power over that  spirit, and you shall proclaim against that spirit  with a loud voice, that it is not of God;
29 Not with railing accusation, that ye be not over come; neither with boasting, nor rejoicing, lest you  be seized therewith:
30 He that receiveth of God, let him account it of  God, and let him rejoice that he is accounted of  God worthy to receive, and by giving heed and do ing these things which ye have received, and which  ye shall hereafter receive:
31 And the kingdom is given unto you of the Fa ther, and power to overcome all things, which is not  ordained of him:
32 And behold, verily I say unto you, blessed are  you who are now hearing these words of mine from  the mouth of my servant, for your sins are forgiven  you.
33 Let my servant in whom I am  well pleased, and my servant , go forth among  the churches and strengthen them by the word of  exhortation;
34 And also my servant or as many  of my servants as are ordained unto this office, and  let them labor in the vineyard;
35 And let no man hinder them of doing that  which I have appointed unto them:
36 Wherefore in this thing my servant is  not justified, neverthe[l]ess let him repent and he  shall be forgiven.
37 Behold ye are little children, and ye can not  bear all things now; ye must grow in  grace and in the knowledge of the truth. [p. 122]
