parts, other kings and forms of governments,
which I shall not <November
9. ’s Remarks continued.> now mention in
detail but confine my remarks more particular ly to the feet of the Image. The
policy of the wicked spirit is to separate what God has joined together, and
unite what he has separated, which he has succeeded in doing to admiration in
the present state of society, which is like unto iron and clay. There is
confusion in all things, both political and religious, and notwithstanding all
the efforts that are made to bring about a Union, Society remains dis-united, and
all attempts to unite her are as fruitless, as to attempt to unite iron and clay.
The feet of the Image is the government of these . other nations and kingdoms are looking up to her for an example
of Union, free dom and equal rights, and therefore worship her life as Daniel
saw in the vision, although they are beginning to lose confidence, in her,
seeing the broils and discord that distract her political and religious horizon.
This Image is characteristic of all governments, . . . . . . . . We should leave
Babylon. . . . . . . . Twenty four hours for improvement now, is worth as much as
a year, a hundred years ago. The Spirit of the fathers that was cut down, or
those that were under the altar, are now rising. This is the first resurrection.
The elder that falls first will rise last. We should not form any opin ion
only for the present, and leave the result of futurity with God. I have risen up
out of obscurity, but was looked up to when but a youth in temporal things. It is
not necessary that God should give us all things in his first commission to
us, but in his second; John saw the angel deliver the Gospel in the last days. .
. . . . The small lights that God has given is sufficient to lead us out of
Babylon, when we get out we shall have the greater light.”
I told I did not understand his remarks on the
resur rection, and wished him to explain. He replied that he “did not
feel impressed by the spirit to unfold it further at present, but perhaps
he might at some other time.” I then with drew to transact some business
with a gentleman who called to see me, when
that he was born in washington
. New York.
He says that all the rail-ro[a]ds,
canals and other improvements are performed by the spirits of the
resurrection. The silence spoken of by John the Revelator, which is to be
in heaven for the space of half an hour, is between
1830 and 1851, during which time the
judg ments of God will be poured out after that time there will <Curiosity to see a Jew.>
