firmament is written of as being typical—
And again we saw the Terrestrial world & behold & lo these  are they who are of the Terrestrial whose glory differeth from  that of the Church of the first born who have received of the  fulness of the father even as that of the Moon differeth from  the Sun of the firmament Behold these are they who died with out law & also they who are the spirits of men kept in  prison whom the Son visited & preached the gospel unto them  that they might be Judged according to men in the flesh  who received not the testimony of Jesus in the flesh but  afterwards received it these are they who are honorable men  of the Earth who were blinded by the craftiness of men these  are they who receive of his glory but not of his fulness these  are they who receive of the presence of the Son but not of  the fulness of the father wherefore they are bodies Terrestrial  & not bodies Ceelestial & differeth in glory as the Moon diff ereth from the Sun these are they who are not valient in the  testimony of Jesus wherefore they obtained not the Crown over  the Kingdoms of our God & now this is the end of the vision  which we saw of the Terrestrial that the Lord commanded  us to write while we were yet in the Spirit
And again we saw the glory of the Telestial whose glory is of  that of the lesser even of <as> the glory of the Stars differeth from that  of the Moon glory of the Moon in the firmament these are they  who receive not the gospel of Christ neither the testimony of Jesus  these are they who deny not the Holy Ghost these are they who  are thrust down to Hell these are they who shall not be redee med from the Devil untill the last resurrection untill the Lord  even Christ the Lamb shall have finished his work these are  they who receive not of his fulness in the eternal world but of  the Holy Ghost through the administration of the Terrestrial  & the Terrestrial through the administration of the Celestial &  also the Telestial receive it of the administering of angels who  are appointed to minister for them or who are appointed to be min istering Spirits for them for they Shall be heirs of salvation  & thus we saw in the Heavenly vision the glory of the Telestial  which surpaseth all understanding & no man knoweth it except [p. 137]
