Tuesday 3d Thus came the word of the Lord unto him concerning the, Twelve,
behold they are under condemnation because they are not sufficiently humble, in my sight, and in consequence of their covetous desires, in that they have not dealt equally with each other, in the division of the monies which came into their hands, nevertheless some of them dealt equally, therefore, they shall be rewarded. But verily I say unto, you they must all humble themselves before me, before they will be accounted worthy to receive an endowment, to go forth in my name unto all nations. As for my servant , let the Eleven humble themselves in prayer and in faith and wait on me in patience and my servant shall return and I will make him a polished shaft in my quiver, in bringing down the wickedness and abominations of men and there shall be none mightier than he in his day and generation, nevertheless, if he repent not speedily, he shall be brought low and shall be chastened, and sorely for all his iniquity which he has committed against me. Nevertheless the sin which he hath sinned against me, is not even now more grievous than the sin with which my Servant , my Servant , and my Servant , have sinned against me, and the residu are not sufficiently humble before me. Behold the parable which I spake concerning a man having twelve sons. For what man among you having twelve Sons and is no respecter to them and they serve him obediently and he saith unto the one be thou clothed in robes and sit thou here, and to the other be thou clothed in rags and sit thou there. And looketh upon his sons and saith I am just. Ye will answer and say no man, and ye answer truly. Therefore, <verily> thus saith the Lord your God. I appointed these ‘Twelve’ that they should be equal in their ministry and in their portion, and in their evangelical rights. Wherefore they have sinned a very grievous sin, inasmuch as they have made themselves unequal. and have not hearkned unto my voice. Therefore, let them repent speedily and prepare their hearts for the solemn assembly, and for the great day which is to come. Verily thus saith the Lord. Amen. [p. 117]
