House ye enter & they receive you leave your blessings upon that house & in whatsoever house ye enter & they receive you not ye shall depart speedily from that house & shake off the dust of your feet as a testimony against them & you shall be filled with Joy & gladness & know this that in the day of Judgement you shall be Judges of that house & condemn them & it shall be more tolerable for the heathen in the day of Judgment than for that house therefore gird up your loins & be faithful & ye shall overcome all things & be lifted up at the last day even So Amen——

And again verily I say unto you thus saith the Lord unto you O ye elders of my Church who have given your names that ye might know you might know his will concerning you Behold I say unto you that it is the duty of the Church to assist in supporting the families of those & also to supp[or]t the families of those who are called & must needs [be sent] unto the world to proclaim the Gospel unto the wor[ld wherefore] I the Lord give unto you this commandment that ye obtain places for your families in as much as your brethren are willing to open their hearts & let all such as can obtain places for their families & support of the Church for them not fail to go into the world whether to the East or to the west or to the North or to the South let them ask & they shall receive knock & it shall be opened unto them & made known from on high even by the comforter whither they shall go & again verily I say unto you that every man who is obliged to provide for his own family let him provide & he shall in no wise loose his reward & let him labour in the Church let every man be dilligent in all things & the Idler shall not have place in the Church except he repents & mends his ways Wherefore let my servnts & my Servant be united in the ministery & also my Servant & my Servant [p. 131]
