Dear friends,—In the power and light is my love to you all, in which the virtue, life, holiness, and righteousness are known, and the riches, that never fade away [Prov 8:18]. Live in the truth, which ye first received, that it may be your crown and your clothing. And dwell in love, and peace, and unity one with another in the truth of God, which the devil is out of [John 8:44], and keep your meetings in the name of Christ Jesus, that never fell [1 Pet 2:22]; and then ye will see over all the gatherings in the fall, in whom the peace, life, and the blessing are. And all know one another in him, who <155> is the substance [Col 2:17], and him to be your way [John 14:6] and teacher [John 3:2], priest [Heb 6:20, etc.] and prophet [Acts 3:22], that never fell; and then ye will see over all the false ways, prophets, priests, and teachers in the fall, ye being in him that never fell, your priest and prophet. Be faithful to God every one in your measure of light, life, and truth; which truth is over the whole world, and all that is in it. And so, living in the light and truth, ye may answer the light and truth in every man and woman [Col 4:6]; and be a good savour to God [2 Cor 2:15f] in the hearts of all people. And keeping your habitations [Jude 1:6] in the truth, and in the light and life, then ye will see over Adam and Eve, their sons and daughters' habitations in the fall, who cannot abide the truth, light, and life in the inward parts [Psa 51:6/John 3:20]; therefore they are not in peace one with another, being not in the habitation that Adam was in before he fell, nor in Christ that never fell, in whom the saints sit down [Eph 2:6], in the life, Christ, who was with the Father before the world began. Adam lost his habitation [Gen 3:23f], and the Jews lost their habitations, the one went into the earth, and the other into captivity, where the apostates are; and so are become like untimely figs [Rev 6:13], or like unto the corn upon the house top [Psa 129:6]. Now this is the word of the Lord God unto you all, keep your habitations in the light, life, and power, which ye first received and felt in yourselves; that ye may be clothed with the blessing of the Lord, which was before the curse was. And live in the unity in the light, which was before darkness was, or the power of it; and in the life which was before death was; and in the truth which was before the devil was; and in the power of God, which was before the power of satan was. All live in this, that ye may be clothed with that which is immortal, and attain to the crown of life [James 1:12, Rev 2:10], and to know the election before the world began [1 Th 1:4, 2 Tim 1:9]. He that is the first and the last, that is the beginning and the ending [Rev 22:13], sit down in him, not in Adam in the fall, but sit down in Christ, that never fell; and there that life ye will come to know, which was with the Father before the world began. And so, live in the substance, which is the seed [Isa 6:13], Christ, who ends the prophets, first covenant, first priesthood, and all the types, and figures, and shadows given after the fall.
