They will people the devils kingdom by wholesale. It is on this principle that Jesus Christ always built his kingdom and he will build it so again. And I want this people to understand that God will build up his kingdom here in this place and yet come in contact with any kingdom. I dont care any thing about all the laws these men can make until they get laws enough to take them all to hell. God can build his kingdom at the foot of the throne of the Queen of and there is not a law to touch them. He teaches his people to respect the kings &c. I dont <​know​> that the time is far distant when I shall proclaim myself a king and a priest of the most High God and if you dont obey me you shall go down to hell. Come on with you[r] mobs, as soon as you please I dont care for them.
Dont let the rascals do as they did in because we would not break law they brought on mobs, I pray to my God that they may be damned and I believe he will damn them. Dont want any office in this government I am determined to be a king— I would not have an office if you would give it me— would not be a king but be a constable of the earth. The reason why I have taken so much pains to day is because people are apt to misconceive and say things as they want them to be, The kingdom of God starts up in the midst of a government in defiance of its laws and never breaks one, I come to say that I am a law abiding man I would live above it. Wherever I get into a place where I say I am a law abiding man I want to be king— We live by principles which brings us much finer, tighter than human laws. Every tax laid upon him by the he intends to discharge faithfully before God. He knows the laws of the and what power they have got and what they have not They Missourians said they law did not offord them protection? because we did not break them. He believs God will purge this church and purge it [p. 11]
