for we saw him, even on the right hand of God & we heard the voice bearing reccord that he is the only begotten of the Father that by him and through him and of him the worlds are made and were created and the inhabitants thereof are begotten sons and daughters unto God and this we saw also and bear reccord that an angel of God who was in authority in the presence of God who rebelled against the only begotten son whom the father loved who was in the bosom with the father and was thrust down from the presence of God and the son and was called perdition for the heavens wept over him for he was Lucifer even the son of the morning and we beheld and lo he is fallen is fallen even the son of the morning, and while we were yet in the spirit the Lord commanded that we should write the vision for we beheld satan that old serpent even the devel who who rebelled against God and saught to take the kingdom of our God and his christ wherefore he maketh war with the saints of God and encompasseth them round about, and we saw a vision of the eternal sufferings of those with whom he made war and overcame for thus came the voice of the Lord unto us thus saith the lord concerning all those who who know my power and have been made partakers thereof and have suffered themselves through the power of the devel to be overcome unto the denying of the truth and the defying of my power they are they who are the sons of perdition of whom I say it had been better for them to have never been born for they are vessels of wrath doomed to suffer the wrath of God with the Devel and his angels [p. 3]
