All Friends every where, in the power of God dwell, and know that over all to keep you. And lose not the power of God which keeps down, tames, and breaks all wild, unruly, rash, and hasty spirits, which will run without the power; which spirits reach not to the seed and the witness of God in men [1 Jn 5:9f], and strike not through the earthly, neither receive wisdom to be ordered to the glory of the Lord God [Wis 8:1/1 Cor 10:31]. And there is safety in the power; and there is the wisdom of the Most High felt, and the power of the endless life [Heb 7:16]. . . . Therefore this is the word of the Lord God, and a charge unto all Friends upon the earth, to dwell all in his power; then his dread, fear, terror, and majesty will be with you, and amongst you all, to cleanse, wash, water, regenerate, and sanctify every one's vessel, who will be thereby fitted for the Lord's use [2 Tim 2:21]. So that the power being lived in, it keeps you over all the world in the dread and majesty of truth, in cleanness and newness of life [Rom 6:4]; and to know the wrath of the lamb [Rev 6:16] against all his enemies. And the power of the Lord God will strike drown the lust that causeth pride, strife, and contention [James 4:1]; it will bring you to live in love and unity one with another, and to know the kingdom <106> of the Most High, that stands in power, ruling in you all. And all your crowns it will lay down, that are mortal, and will raise up the seed and bring life and immortality to light [2 Tim 1:10]; where the crown that is immortal is known, and the glory that fadeth not away is possessed [1 Pet 5:4]. And all spirits that are unruly and out of the power, must be judged with it, and kept subject; for that which lives in the power, is begotten by the seed Christ [Gal 3:16], the new man, that is made after God in righteousness and holiness [Eph 4:24]. This birth is of the immortal seed by the word and will of God, not begotten or brought forth by the will of man [John 1:13]. And none quench the spirit's movings [1 Th 5:5] in the least degree, nor none go beyond. And feed not upon that, which dies of itself [Lev 22:8], but on that which cometh from above. Know the son of man's flesh, which is your bread, and his blood, which is your drink; which who eats and drinks of, hungers no more, nor thirsts no more, but hath the endless life [John 6:54, 4:14] . . . .

And all Friends every where, in all your meetings know and feel the power, and the seed (that is the heir of the promise) [Gal 3:29] of the Lord God amongst you, over you, and in you; then in that ye will feel the presence of the Lord God dwelling in the midst of you [Mat 18:20]. And to the Lord your hearts will be brought, and it will bring you nigh one to another, and to come into sweet love and unity, and into easiness and openness of heart; and keep you over all that which would stain you, or hurt you, or defile you. Whereby wisdom shall be given to you, with which ye shall be ordered [Wis 8:1] to God's glory; whereby ye shall feel his blessing, and order the creatures to his praise. And the gospel ye shall be shod with [Eph 6:15]. And standing and dwelling in the power of God, there the shield of faith [Eph 6:16] ye will receive, that gives the victory over the world [1 Jn 5:4], with which ye have all access to God [Rom 5:2]; which mystery of faith is held in a pure conscience [1 Tim 3:9]. So, in the power of God ye all living, ye live in the Lamb's authority, in the Lamb's dominion; and victory through him over all the world ye come to obtain, to answer that of God in all consciences, in cleanness of heart and mind. . . .
