believe it.—— who told you God was Self existnt? correct enough.— in hebrew put into him his spirit.— which was created before. Mind of man co-equal with God himself— friends separated. for a small moment. from their spirits. coequal with God. and hold conversation when they are one with another.—
If man had a beginig beginning he must have an end.—— might proclaim. God never had power to create the spirit of man at at all.
Intiignc Intelligence exist upon a self existent principle no creation about. it. all minds & spirit God ever sent into the world are susceptible of enlargement.——
all things God has seen fit proper to reveal while dwelling in mortality. are reveald.— precisely the same— as though we were destitute of bodies.——
what will save our spirits will save our bodies.—— our taberacls tabernacles—— for our spirits— All spirits— who have not obedye obeyed the Gospel must be damnd.— Who have not obeyed the decrees of son of man.
we are looked upon by God as though we were in Eternity— the greatest responibity responsibility resting upon us is to look upon our dead.— they without us cannot be made perfct without us. meet Paul 1/2 way.—
Hence the saying of Elijah.— [p. [69]]
