the word of truth doth he receive it by the spirit of truth or some other way if it be some other way it be not of God. Therefore why is it that ye cannot understand & know that he that receiveth the word by the spirit of truth receiveth it as it is preached by the spirit of truth wherefore he that preacheth & he that receiveth understandeth one another & both are edifyed & rejoice together & that which doth not edify is not of God & is darkness, That which is of God is light & he that receivith light & continueth in God receiveth more light & that light groweth brighter & brighter until the perfect day & again verily I say unto you & I say it that you may know the truth that you may chase darkness from among you for he that is of God & sent forth the same is appointed to be greatest nevertheless he is least & the servant of all wherefore he is possessor of all things for all things are subject unto him both in heaven & on the earth the life & the light the spirit & the power sent forth by the will of the father through Jesus Christ his son but no man is possessor of all things except he be purified [p.
