the day nor the hour. Let them, there fore, who are among the , flee  unto . And let them who be of  Judah, flee unto Jerusalem, unto the  mountains of the Lord’s house. Go  ye out from among the nations, even  from Babylon, from the midst of wick edness, which is spiritual Babylon.—  But verily thus saith the Lord, let not  your flight be in haste, but let all things  be prepared before you: and he that  goeth, let him not look back, lest sud den destruction come upon him.
Hearken and hear O ye inhabitants  of the earth. Listen ye of my  church together, and hear the voice of  the Lord, for he calleth upon all men &  he all men every where  to repent: for behold the Lord God  hath sent forth the , crying thro’  the midst of heaven, saying: Prepare  ye the way of the Lord, and make his  paths strait, for the hour of his coming  is nigh, when the Lamb shall stand up on mount Zion, and with him a hun dred and forty four thousand, having  his Father’s name written in their fore heads: wherefore, prepare ye for the  coming of the Bridegroom: go ye, go  ye out to meet him, for behold he shall  stand upon the mount of Olivet, and  upon the mighty ocean, even the great  deep, and upon the islands of the sea,  and upon the land of Zion; and he  shall utter his voice out of Zion, and  he shall speak from Jerusalem, and his  voice shall be heard among all people,  and it shall be a voice as the voice of  many waters, and as the voice of a  great thunder, which shall break down  the mountains, and the vallies shall not  be found: he shall command the great  deep and it shall be driven back into  the north countries, and the islands  shall become one land, and the land of  Jerusalem and the land of Zion, shall  be turned back into their own place,  and the earth shall be like as it was in  the days before it was divided. And  the Lord even the Savior shall stand in  the midst of his people, and shall reign  over all flesh. And they who are in  the north countries shall come in re membrance before the Lord, and their  prophets shall hear his voice, and shall  no longer stay themselves, and they  shall smite the rocks, and the ice shall  flow down at their presence. And an  high way shall be cast up in the midst  of the great deep. Their enemie s shal  become a prey unto them, and in th[e]  barren deserts there shall come forth  pools of living water; and the parched  ground shall no longer be a thirsty  land. And they shall bring forth their  rich treasures unto the children of  Ephraim my servants. And the boun daries of the everlasting hills shall  tremble at their presence. And then  shall they fall down and be crowned  with glory, even in Zion, by the hands  of the servants of the Lord, even the  children of Ephraim; and they shall be  filled with songs of everlasting joy.—  Behold this is the blessing of the ever lasting God upon the tribes of Israel,  and the richer blessing upon the head  of Ephraim and his fellows. And they  also of the tribe of Judah, after their  pain, shall be sanctified in holiness be fore the Lord to dwell in his presence  day and night forever and ever.
And now verily saith the Lord, that  these things might be known among  you, O inhabitants of the earth, I have  sent forth mine angel, flying through  the midst of heaven, having the ever lasting gospel, who hath appeared unto  some, and hath committed it unto man,  who shall appear unto many that dwell  on the earth: and this gospel shall be  preached unto every nation, and kin dred, and tongue, and people, and the  servants of God shall go forth, saying,  with a loud voice: Fear God and give  glory to him: for the hour of his judg ment is come: and worship him that  made heaven, and earth, and sea, and  the fountain of waters, calling upon  the name of the Lord day and night,  saying: O that thou wouldst rend the  heavens, that thou wouldst come down,  that the mountains might flow down at  they presence. And it shall be answer ed upon their heads, for the presence  of the Lord shall be as the melting fire  that burneth, and as the fire which  causeth the waters to boil. O Lord,  thou shalt come down to make thy  name known to thine adversaries, and  all nations shall tremble at thy pres ence. When thou doeth terrible things,  things they look not for; yea, when  thou comest down and the mountains  flow down at thy presence, thou shalt  meet him who rejoiceth and worketh  righteousness, who remember thee in  thy ways: for since the beginning of  the world have not men heard nor per ceived by the ear, neither hath any  eye seen, O God, besides thee, how [p. 178]
the day nor the hour. Let them, therefore, who are among the , flee unto . And let them who be of Judah, flee unto Jerusalem, unto the mountains of the Lord’s house. Go ye out from among the nations, even from Babylon, from the midst of wickedness, which is spiritual Babylon.— But verily thus saith the Lord, let not your flight be in haste, but let all things be prepared before you: and he that goeth, let him not look back, lest sudden destruction come upon him.
Hearken and hear O ye inhabitants of the earth. Listen ye of my church together, and hear the voice of the Lord, for he calleth upon all men & he all men every where to repent: for behold the Lord God hath sent forth the , crying thro’ the midst of heaven, saying: Prepare ye the way of the Lord, and make his paths strait, for the hour of his coming is nigh, when the Lamb shall stand upon mount Zion, and with him a hundred and forty four thousand, having his Father’s name written in their foreheads: wherefore, prepare ye for the coming of the Bridegroom: go ye, go ye out to meet him, for behold he shall stand upon the mount of Olivet, and upon the mighty ocean, even the great deep, and upon the islands of the sea, and upon the land of Zion; and he shall utter his voice out of Zion, and he shall speak from Jerusalem, and his voice shall be heard among all people, and it shall be a voice as the voice of many waters, and as the voice of a great thunder, which shall break down the mountains, and the vallies shall not be found: he shall command the great deep and it shall be driven back into the north countries, and the islands shall become one land, and the land of Jerusalem and the land of Zion, shall be turned back into their own place, and the earth shall be like as it was in the days before it was divided. And the Lord even the Savior shall stand in the midst of his people, and shall reign over all flesh. And they who are in the north countries shall come in remembrance before the Lord, and their prophets shall hear his voice, and shall no longer stay themselves, and they shall smite the rocks, and the ice shall flow down at their presence. And an high way shall be cast up in the midst of the great deep. Their enemie s shal become a prey unto them, and in the barren deserts there shall come forth pools of living water; and the parched ground shall no longer be a thirsty land. And they shall bring forth their rich treasures unto the children of Ephraim my servants. And the boundaries of the everlasting hills shall tremble at their presence. And then shall they fall down and be crowned with glory, even in Zion, by the hands of the servants of the Lord, even the children of Ephraim; and they shall be filled with songs of everlasting joy.— Behold this is the blessing of the everlasting God upon the tribes of Israel, and the richer blessing upon the head of Ephraim and his fellows. And they also of the tribe of Judah, after their pain, shall be sanctified in holiness before the Lord to dwell in his presence day and night forever and ever.
And now verily saith the Lord, that these things might be known among you, O inhabitants of the earth, I have sent forth mine angel, flying through the midst of heaven, having the everlasting gospel, who hath appeared unto some, and hath committed it unto man, who shall appear unto many that dwell on the earth: and this gospel shall be preached unto every nation, and kindred, and tongue, and people, and the servants of God shall go forth, saying, with a loud voice: Fear God and give glory to him: for the hour of his judgment is come: and worship him that made heaven, and earth, and sea, and the fountain of waters, calling upon the name of the Lord day and night, saying: O that thou wouldst rend the heavens, that thou wouldst come down, that the mountains might flow down at they presence. And it shall be answered upon their heads, for the presence of the Lord shall be as the melting fire that burneth, and as the fire which causeth the waters to boil. O Lord, thou shalt come down to make thy name known to thine adversaries, and all nations shall tremble at thy presence. When thou doeth terrible things, things they look not for; yea, when thou comest down and the mountains flow down at thy presence, thou shalt meet him who rejoiceth and worketh righteousness, who remember thee in thy ways: for since the beginning of the world have not men heard nor perceived by the ear, neither hath any eye seen, O God, besides thee, how [p. 178]
