Servent this land is the land of his residence & those whom he has appointed for his & also the land of the residence of him whom I have appointed to keep my Wherefore let them bring their families to this land as they shall council between them & me for behold it is not meet that I should in all things for he that is compelled in all things the same is a slothfull & not a wise Servent Wherefore he receiveth no reward verily I say men should be anxiously engaged in a good cause and do many things of their own free will, & bring to pass much righteousness for the power is in them wherein they are agents unto themselves & in-as-much as men are good they shall in no wise loose their reward but he that doeth not any thing untill he is commanded & receiveth a commandment with a doubtfull heart & keepeth it with slothfullness the same is damned Who am I that made man saith the Lord that will hold him guilty that obey not my commandments who am I saith the Lord that have promised & have not fulfilled I command & a man obeys not I revoke & they receive not the blessing then they say in their hearts this is not the work of the Lord for his promises are not fulfilled but wo unto such for their reward lurketh beneath & not from above & now I give unto you further directions concerning this Land it is wisdom in me that my servent should be an example unto the in laying his money before the of the Church & also this is a law unto every man that cometh unto the Land to receive an and he shall do with his moneys according as the directs & it is wisdom also that it there should be lands purchased in for the place of the storehouse & also for the & other directions concerning my servent shall be given him of the spirit that he may receive his inheritance as seemeth him good & let him repent of his sins for he seeketh the praise of the world & also let my servent stand in the office which I have appointed him & receive his inheritance in the Land & also he hath need to repent for I the lord am not pleased with him for he seeketh to excell & he is not sufficiently humble meek in his heart behold he that hath repented of his sins the [p. 96]
