of John which was given unto us thus Speaking of the resurrection  of the dead who should hear the voice of the Son of man & shall  come forth they who have done good in the resurrection of the  Just & they who have done evil in the resurrection of the  unjust Now this caused us to marvel greatly for it was given  us of the spirit & while we meditated upon these things the Lord  touched the eyes of our understanding & they were opened & the glory  of the Lord shone round about & we beheld the glory of the  Son on the right hand of the father & received of his fulness &  saw the holy angels & they who are sanctified before his throne  worshiping God & the Lamb forever & ever And now after the many  testimonies which have been given of him this is the testimony  last of all which we give of him that he lives for we saw  him even on the right hand of God & we heard the voice bearing  record that he is the only begotten of the father that by him &  through him & of him the worlds are made & were created  & the inhabitant thereof are begotten Sons of and daughters of  unto God This we saw also & bear record that an Angel of God  who was in authority in the presence of God who rebelled against  the only begotten Son whom the father loved & who was in <in> the  Bosom with the father was thrust down from the presence of  God & the Son & was called perdition for the heavens wept over  him for he was lucipher even the son of the morning & we beheld  & lo he is fallen is fallen even the Son of the morning and while  we were yet in the spirit the Lord commanded us that we should  write the vision for behold Satan that old Serpent even the Devil  who rebelled against God & sought to take Kingdoms of our God  & of his Christ wherefore he maketh war with the saints of God  & incompasses them about and we saw a vision of the eternal  sufferings of those with whom he maketh war & overcometh for  thus came the voice unto us
Thus saith the Lord concerning all those who know my power  & have been made partakers thereof & suffered themselves through the power  of the Devil to be overcome unto the denying of the truth and they  defying <of> my power they are they who are the Sons of perdition of  whom I say it had been better for them never to have been born  for they are vessils of wrath doomed to suffer the wrath of God [p. 134[b]]
