the church of the first born, and received into the cloud: these are they who are  liars, and sorcerers, and adulterers, and whoremungers, and whosoever loveth and  maketh a lie: these are they who suffer the wrath of God on the earth: these are  they who suffer the vengeance of eternal fire: these are they who are cast down to  hell and suffer the wrath of Almighty God until the fulness of times, when Christ  shall have subdued all enemies under his feet, and shall have perfected his work,  when he shall deliver up the kingdom and present it unto his Father spotless, say ing: I have overcome and trodden the wine-press alone, even the wine-press of the  fierceness of the wrath of Almighty God: then shall he be crowned with the crown  of his glory, to sit on the throne of his power to reign forever and ever. But be hold and lo, we saw the inhabitants of the world, that they were in num ber as innumerable as the stars in the firmament of Heaven, or as the sand upon  the sea shore, and heard the voice of the Lord saying: These all shall bow the  knee, and every tongue shall confess to him who sitteth upon the throne forever and  ever: for they shall be judged according to their works; and every man shall re ceive according to his own works, and his own dominion, in the mansions which  are prepared; and they shall be servants of the most High, but where God and  Christ dwells they cannot come, worlds without end. This is the end of the vis ion which we saw, which we were commanded to write while we were yet in the  Spirit.
But great and marvelous are the works of the Lord and the mysteries of his king dom which he showed unto us, which surpasseth all understanding in glory, and  in might, and in dominion, which he us we should not write, while we  were yet in the Spirit, and are not lawful for man to utter; neither is man capable  to make them known, for they are only to be seen and understood by the power of  the Holy Ghost; which God bestows on those who love him and purify themselves  before him; to whom he grants this privilege of seeing and knowing for themselves;  that through the power and manifestation of the Spirit, while in the flesh, they may  be able to bear his presence in the world of glory. And to God and the Lamb be  glory, and honor, and dominion, forever and ever. Amen. [p. [3]]

But behold and lo, we saw the inhabitants of the world, that they were in number as innumerable as the stars in the firmament of Heaven, or as the sand upon the sea shore, and heard the voice of the Lord saying: These all shall bow the knee, and every tongue shall confess to him who sitteth upon the throne forever and ever: for they shall be judged according to their works; and every man shall receive according to his own works, and his own dominion, in the mansions which are prepared; and they shall be servants of the most High, but where God and Christ dwells they cannot come, worlds without end. This is the end of the vision which we saw, which we were commanded to write while we were yet in the Spirit.
But great and marvelous are the works of the Lord and the mysteries of his kingdom which he showed unto us, which surpasseth all understanding in glory, and in might, and in dominion, which he us we should not write, while we were yet in the Spirit, and are not lawful for man to utter; neither is man capable to make them known, for they are only to be seen and understood by the power of the Holy Ghost; which God bestows on those who love him and purify themselves before him; to whom he grants this privilege of seeing and knowing for themselves; that through the power and manifestation of the Spirit, while in the flesh, they may be able to bear his presence in the world of glory. And to God and the Lamb be glory, and honor, and dominion, forever and ever. Amen. [p. [3]]
