Wherein the Children of the Divine Mysteries shall have their first admittance into this Holy Mount, where their Lot shall be to Inherit, and Possess, those precious things contained therein. Which indeed are so Great, so Rich, so Immense, as nothing less than God himself shall your All-filling Substance be- still abounding in unmeasurable Degrees, as in passive Meekness you do attend and wait in the inward Court: where new and fresh Springs of Revelation shall open, and make known the Wonders that are now approaching. In order whereunto as a forerunner the Spirit of Prophecy has now gone forth, to signifie there is a Call to the four Quarters of the Earth, the Gates of the Everlasting Mount being set open, that whosoever can understand and discern this time, and day of God’s great Love-Visitation, may now draw near and hear what great Secrets are Publish’d from this Mount of Vision, which will not fail to have their fulfilling in, and upon, such who in the Spirit of Faith essenced are- But unto others, who are unbelieving, it’s not to be marvelled at that they excluded are from all these Royal Prerogatives, and great Immunities relating to Divine Openings, and Renewed Manifestations of what has hitherto reserved been in the Wisdom and Counsel of God. Wherefore according to the experience of this Author, Unmeasurable are the renewed Gifts and Powers hereof. And I can not therefore but excite and persuade all into whose hands this may come, to keep close to that Anointing which will be an Intelligencer, and Opener of the mind of Eternal Wisdom. In which (as in a clear Glass) may be known, and seen, what is expedient for some in every Age to be acquainted with- God not being limited to those foregoing Ages of time, (in which his mind in the Truth of the Spirit was made known:) but the line of his Spirit doth still continue, and extend it self to an unconfined length, till it have fathomed the deepest Deep, even GOD himself.
