er to overcome all things, which is not ordained of him: 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.
8 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; and  also my servant , or as many of my servants as  are ordained unto this office, and let them labor in the vine yard; and let no man hinder them of doing that which I have  appointed unto them: wherefore in this thing my servant , is not justified, nevertheless let him repent  and he shall be forgiven. Behold ye are little children, and  ye cannot bear all things now; ye must grow in grace and in  the knowledge of the truth. Fear not, little children, for you  are mine, and I have overcome the world, and you are of them  that my Father hath given me; and none of them that my  Father hath given me shall be lost: and the Father and I are  one: I am in the Father and the Father in me: and inasmuch  as ye have received me, ye are in me, and I in you: wherefore  I am in your midst; and I am the good Shepherd, (and the  stone of Israel: he that buildeth upon this rock shall never  fall.) And the day cometh that you shall hear my voice and  see me, and know that I am. Watch, therefore, that ye may  be ready; even so: Amen.

2 Ye cannot behold with your natural eyes, for the present  time, the design of your God concerning those things which  shall come hereafter, and the glory which shall follow, after  much tribulation. For after much tribulation cometh the bles sings. Wherefore, the day cometh that ye shall be crowned  with much glory, the hour is not yet but is nigh at hand.
3 Remember this which I tell you before, that you may lay  it to heart, and receive that which shall follow. Behold, ver ily I say unto you, for this cause I have sent you that you  might be obedient, and that your hearts might be prepared to [p. 136]
