1841 Dec 19 congregation for their wickedness and unbelief, for whom the Lord loveth he chasteneth, and scourgeth every son and daughter whom he receiveth; and if we do not receive chastisements then are we bastards and not sons.
On the subject of revelation he said a man would command his son to dig potatoes and saddle his horse, but before he had done either he would tell him to do something else; this is all considered right, but as soon as the Lord gives a commandment and revokes that decree and commands something else, then the prophet is considered fallen &c Because we will not receive chastisement at the hand of the prophet and apostles, the Lord chastiseth us with sickness and death. Let not any man publish his own righteousness, for others can see that for him, sooner let him confess his sins, and then he will be forgiven, and he will bring forth more fruit. When a corrupt man is chastized he gets angry and will not endure it. The reason we do not have the secrets of the Lord revealed unto us, is because we do not keep them, but reveal them; we do not keep our own secrets, but reveal our difficulties to the world, even to our enemies, then how would we keep the secrets of the Lord? ‘I can keep a secret till Doomsday’. What greater love hath any man than that he lay down his life for his friend, then why not fight for our friend until we die.
