The spirit of Elijah is that degree of power which holds the sealing power of the Kingdom to seal the hearts of the fathers to the children & of the children their fathers not only on earth but in Heaven both the living & the Dead to each other for they (the dead) cannot be made perfect without us Heb 11— 40
This power of Elijah is to that of Elias what in the architecture of the Temple of God those who seal or cement the stone to their places are to those who cut or hew the stones the one preparing the way for the other to accomplish the work By this we are sealed with the Holy Spiri[t] of promise ie Elijah
To obtain this sealing is to make our calling and election sure which we ought to give all diligence to accomplish
there are two sins agains which this power does not secure or prevail they are “The sin against the Holy Ghost” And “shedding of innocent Blood” which is equivelant to “crucifying the son of God afresh & putting him to an open shame” [p. [33]]
