6 Wherefore, he that preacheth and he that  receiveth, understandeth one another, and  both are edified and rejoice together; and that  which doth not edify, is not of God, and is  darkness: that which is of God is light, and he  that receiveth light and continueth in God, re ceiveth more light, and that light groweth  brighter and brighter, until the perfect day.  And again, verily I say unto you, and I say it  that you may know the truth, that you may  chase darkness from among you, for he that is  ordained of God and sent forth, the same is ap pointed to be the greatest, notwithstanding he  is least, and the servant of all: wherefore he  is possessor of all things, for all things are sub ject unto him, both in heaven and on the earth,  the life, and the light, the spirit and the power,  sent forth by the will of the Father, through  Jesus Christ, his son; but no man is possessor  of all things, except he be purified and cleans ed from all sin, and if ye are purified and cleans ed from all sin, ye shall ask whatsoever you  will in the name of Jesus, and it shall be done:  but know this, it shall be given you what you  shall ask, and as ye are appointed to the head,  the spirits shall be subject unto you:
7 Wherefore it shall come to pass, that if  you behold a spirit manifested that you cannot  understand, and you receive not that spirit, ye  shall ask of the Father in the name of Jesus,  and if he give not unto you that spirit, that you  may know that it is not of God: 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; not with rail [p. 192]
6 Wherefore, he that preacheth and he that receiveth, understandeth one another, and both are edified and rejoice together; and that which doth not edify, is not of God, and is darkness: that which is of God is light, and he that receiveth light and continueth in God, receiveth more light, and that light groweth brighter and brighter, until the perfect day. And again, verily I say unto you, and I say it that you may know the truth, that you may chase darkness from among you, for he that is ordained of God and sent forth, the same is appointed to be the greatest, notwithstanding he is least, and the servant of all: wherefore he is possessor of all things, for all things are subject unto him, both in heaven and on the earth, the life, and the light, the spirit and the power, sent forth by the will of the Father, through Jesus Christ, his son; but no man is possessor of all things, except he be purified and cleansed from all sin, and if ye are purified and cleansed from all sin, ye shall ask whatsoever you will in the name of Jesus, and it shall be done: but know this, it shall be given you what you shall ask, and as ye are appointed to the head, the spirits shall be subject unto you:
