All Blessings that were ordained for man by the Council of Heaven were on conditions of obedience to the Law thereof. No man can obtain an eternal Blessing unless the contract or covenant be made in view of Eternity [p. [21]] All contracts in view of this Life only terminate with this Life. Case of the woman & 7 husbands Luke 20–29 &c
Those who keep no eternal Law in this life or make no eternal contract are single & alone in the eternal world (Luke 20–35) and are only made Angels to minister to those who shall be heirs of Salvation never becoming Sons of God having never kept the Law of God ie eternal Law The earthly is the image of the Heavenly shows that is by the multiplication of Lives that the eternal worlds are created and occupied that which is born of the flesh is flesh that which is born of the spirit is spirit [p. [22]]
