7 For the vail of darkness shall soon be rent, and he that is not purified shall not abide the day:
8 Wherefore gird up your loins and be prepared.
9 Behold the kingdom is yours and the enemy shall not overcome.
10 Verily I say unto you, ye are clean but not all; and there is none else with whom I am well pleased, for all flesh is corruptible before me, and the powers of darkness prevail upon the earth, among the children of men, in the presence of all the hosts of heaven, which causeth silence to reign, and all eternity is pained, and the angels are waiting the great command, to reap down the earth, to gather the tares that they may be burned:
11 And behold the enemy is combined.
12 And now I show unto you a mystery, a thing which is had in secret chambers, to bring to pass even your destruction, in process of time, and ye knew it not, but now I tell it unto you, and ye are blessed, not because of your iniquity, neither your hearts of unbelief, for verily some of you are guilty before me; but I will be merciful unto your weakness.
13 Therefore, be ye strong from henceforth; fear not for the kingdom is yours:
14 And for your salvation I give unto you a commandment, for I have heard your prayers, and the poor have complained before me, and the rich have I made, and all flesh is mine, and I am no respect [p. 81]
