for he dwelt in him. And it shall come to pass, that if you  are faithful, you shall receive the fulness of the record of John.  I give unto you these sayings, that you may understand, and  know how to worship, that you may come unto the Father in  my name, and in due time receive of his fulness. For if you  keep my commandments you shall receive of his fulness, and  be glorified in me, as I am glorified in the Father. Therefore, I  say unto you, you shall receive grace for grace. And now verily I  say unto you, I was in the beginning with the father, and am the  first born: and all those who are begotten throug[h] me, are par takers of the glory of the same, and are the church of the first born.  Ye were also in the beginning with the Father, that which is spirit,  even the spirit of truth. And truth is knowledge of things as they  are, and as they were, and as they are to come; and whatsoever is  more or less than these is the spirit of that wicked one who was  a liar from the beginning.
The Spirit of truth is of God: I am the spirit of truth: And  John bore record of me, saying he received a fulness of truth; yea, even  all truth. And no man receiveth a fulness unless he keepeth  his commandments. He that keepeth his commandments,  receiveth truth & light, untill he is glorified in truth, and  knoweth all things. Man was also in the beginning with God.  Intelligence, or the light of truth, was not created or made, neith er indeed can be. All truth is independent in that sphere in  which God has placed it to act for itself as all intelligence also,  otherwise there is no existance. Behold here is the agency of  man, and here is the condemnation of man: Because, that which  was from the beginning, was <is> plainly manifest unto them,  and they receive not the light. And every man whose Spirit  receiveth not the light is under condemnation, for man is  Spirit. The e◊◊◊◊ents are eternal: And spirit & element insep erably connected connected receiveth a fulness of Joy; and when seper ated man cannot receive a fulness of Joy. The elements are the tab ernacle of God; yea, man is the tabernacle of God even temples.  And whatsoever temple is defiled, God shall destroy that temple.  The glory of God is intelligence; or in other words, light, and truth  truth. Light <& truth> forsaketh that evil one. Every spirit of man was [p. 179]
