delivered me out of them all and will deliver me from henceforth for behold and lo I shall triumph over all my enemies for the Lord God hath spoken it.
Let all the saints rejoice therefore and be exceeding glad for Israels God is their God and he will meet out a just recompense of reward upon the heads of all your oppressors. And again verily thus saith the Lord let the work of my and all the works which I have appointed unto you be continued on and not cease; and let your diligence and your perseverance and patience and your works be redoubled, and you shall in no wise loose lose your reward saith the Lord of Hosts. And if they persecute you so persecuted they the prophets and righteous men that were before you; for all this there is a reward in heaven.
And again I give unto you a word in relation to the Baptism for your dead. Verily thus saith the Lord unto you concerning your dead when any of you are baptised for your dead let there be a recorder, and let him be eyewitness of your baptisms; let him hear with his ears that he may testify of a truth, saith the Lord; that in all your recordings it may be recorded in Heaven, that whatsoever you bind on earth may be bound in heaven; whatsoever you loose on earth may be loosed in heaven; for I am about to restore many things to the Earth, pertaining to the Priesthood saith the Lord of Hosts. And again let all the Records be had in order, that they may be put in the archives of my Holy to be held in remembrance from generation to generation saith the Lord of Hosts [p. [2]]
