the keys of power As the father hath power in himself so the Son hath power, in himself then the father has some day laid down his body & taken it again <​so he has a body of his own—​> so has his son a body of his own so each one will be in their own body,— Many of the sects cry out O I have the testimony of Jesus, I have the spirit of God But away with Jo Smith he says he is a Prophet But their is to be no Prophets nor revelations in the last days; But stop sir the Revelator says that the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of Prophecy so by your own mouth you are condemned.
But to the text why gather the people together in this place for the same purpose that Jesus wanted to gather the Jews, to receive the ordinances the blessings the glories that God has in store for his saints And I would now ask this assembly and all the Saints if they will now build this & receive the ordinances & Blessings which God has in store for you or will you not build unto the Lord this & let him pass by & bestow these blessings upon another I pause for a reply [p. [46]]
