obtains this last Comforter he will have  the personage of Jesus Christ to attend him  or appear unto him from time to time. & even  he will manifest the Father unto him & they  will take up their abode with him, & the  visions of the heavens will be opened unto  him & the Lord will teach him face to face  & he may have a perfect knowledge of the  mysteries of the kingdom of God. & this is  the state & place the Ancient Saints arri ved at when they had such glorious vision  Isaiah, Ezekiel, John upon the Isle of  patmos, St Paul in the third heavens, &  all the saints who held communion with  the general Assembly & church of the First  Born &c.
The Spirit of Revelation is in  connection with these blessings. A person  may profit by noticing the first intimation  of the Spirit of Revelation for instance when  you feel pure Inteligence flowing unto you  it may give you sudden strokes of ideas  that by noticeting it you may find it  fulfilled the same day or soon. (I,E,) those  things that were presented unto your minds  by the Spirit of God will come to pass [p. 21]
