over that spirit, and you shall proclaim against  that spirit with a loud voice, that it is not of  God; not with railing accusation that ye be  not overcome; neither with boasting, nor re joicing, lest you be seized therewith: he that  receives of God let him account it of God,  and let him rejoice that he is accounted of  God worthy to receive; and by giving heed  and doing these things which ye have receiv ed, and which ye shall hereafter receive, and  the kingdom is given unto you of the Father,  and power to overcome all things, which are  not ordained of him: and behold, verily I say  unto you blessed are you that hear these  words of mine from the mouth of my servant,  for your sins are forgiven you. Let my ser vant in whom I am well  pleased, and my servant , go  forth among the churches and strengthen them  by the word of exhortation; and also my ser vant , or as many of my ser vants as are ordained unto this office, and let  them labor in the vineyard; and let no man  hinder them of doing that which I have ap pointed unto them: wherefore in this thing  my servant is not justified,  nevertheless let him repent and he shall be  forgiven. Behold ye are little children, and  ye cannot bear all things now; ye must grow  in grace and in the knowledge of the truth.—  Fear not, little children, for you are mine,  and I have overcome the world, and you are  of them that my Father has given me; and  none of them which my Father has given me  shall be lost: and the Father and I are one: I  am in the Father and the Father in me: and  inasmuch as ye have received me ye are in  me, and I in you: wherefore I am in your  midst; and I am the good Shepherd; and the  day comes that you shall hear my voice and  see me, and know that I am. Watch, there fore, that ye may be ready; even so: Amen. [p. 44]
