OF THE PSALMS.

117 9, 10-When God ariseth to judgment, to save all the meek of the earth : surely the wrath of man shall praise thee : the remainder of wrath thou shalt restrain. Psulm lxxv. 10—All the horns of the wicked also will I cut off ; but the horns of the righteous shall be exalted. Psalm lxviii. 18—Thou hast ascended on high, thou hast led captivity captive: thou hist rece: ved gifrs for men ; yea, for the rebellious also, that the Lord God mighe dwell among them. Psalm lxvii. --God shall bless us ; and all the ends of the earth shall fear him. Psalm lxvi. 4-All the earth shall worsbip thee, and shall siog unto thee; they shall sing to thy name. Psalm xlvi. 9, 10-He maketh wars to cease unto the cad of the earth ; he breaketh the bow, and cutteth the spear in sunder; he burneth the chariot in the fire. Be still and know that I am God: I will be eralred among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth. Psalın xl. 6, 7, 8-Sacrifice and offering thou didst not desire; mine ears hast thou opened : barnt offering and sin offering hast thou not requir

THE ANSWER OF THE LORD." " Now, Joanna, I shall answer thee. From the inanner thou hast brought backward the PSALMS, so shall I bring all things backward. Now remember Psalm ii--Ask and receive thy full demands; then will I give thee the heathen for thine inheritance, and the uttermost parts of the earth for thy possession. Then goes on what the prophecies are ; and that help should be laid upon one that was mighty, to receive gifts for men. Now all things thou. hast worked backward, for me to ask and demand them all. But what are the gifts I am to ask for men, but to give them the gift of my SPIRIT, and to destroy their enemy, the Devil? Now as thou hast worked backward the prophecies of Me, to ask and receive, so I have worked backward the Bible, for thee to ask and receive thy full demands, that the Woman's betrayer might be cast; and the Woman might be freed. This is the help that is laid upon one that is MIGHTY : that is able to save unto the utinost all them that long for HIS COMING.

Now 111 begin from what thou'st done,

To trace the Psalmist back,
And then, I tell thee, in the end

They'll find how all must break.
Wisely the words were judy'd by thee

Of David's prophecy :
It was in spirit he did see

The words that here do lie;
Because the Lord with one accord,

Plac'd Judgment at the first,
That at bis RIGHT HAND I should site

Until the end did burst,
That I did coine for to fulfil,

As it is said before
You know it was my Father's will,

In the Creation here;
The Woman's Seed should bruise the head

Of him that did betray;
For so the Promise first was laid,

And backward, now I say,

119

OF THE PSALMS.
The whole shall come, as thou hast done,
• For backward I shall go,
Till on the Serpent I shall turn,

I say, the every blow.
Let Men see clear what's written there,

And trace the Psalms like thee,
And then I bid thein answer here,

How they the whole can free?
What vision first can they now place,

That did of me foretel;
That help in Me should surely be,

The mighTY ONE excel ?
Or what First Born was judg'd by men

To be exalted so,
Iligher than earthly king to come

Above thein, you do know?
Let men appear and answer here,

How they do judge the thing
Because the words are written here--

Higher than earthly kings.
This sure to Man can never come;

Then it must come to ME,
Who shed my Blood then in Man's stead; •

As there the fault you see,
Was cast by Man: so I did come;

But now I'll bring it back,
I say, upon the Serpent's head,

And he shall feel the rack.
Because that long he did blaspheme,

And does it to this day;
But he shall know my every Name-

The Promises do lay
For Me to coine again to Man,

And plead MY PROMISE here;
And as a God I'll now awake,

I've told thee so before;
When I at first to thee did burst,

In Spirit to appear,
I said the Serpent should be cast

The second Psalm was near;
That I'd fulfil my Father's will,

And my demand I'd claim ;
And now this day, to thee I say,

I will the whole maintain ;
My cause I'll plead, as I have said

Remember all before :
Ilow the reproach of wicked mea

Doth daily here appear;
But I'll yo back to bring the stroke,

I tell thee, now on Men,
If that my Bible still they'll mock,

When I have shewd them plain
How it doth appear my Bible clear,

That no Man can deny.

But if they now begin to fear,

And see how all do lie;
Then they'll see plain in every line,

When I was murder'd here,
That I ascended up on high,

To make my Bible clear:
And gifts for inen I said I'd bring,

And so 't shall now come down ;
I said the COMFORTER should come-

The Holy Ghost be found,
That in my Name should surely come,

And in my Name 'tis done:
And as thou say'st of David's Psalms-

His mind was like thine own;
Only in one thou can'st not join,

Then now I'll join with thee:
As to the Serpent thou artcome,

In Spirit join'd with he;
That's David here I mean to clear,

That wish'd it to the man :
My enemies he could not bear

The shadows from him come. But thou dost say another way,

That Satan' is the Foe : Mankind he daily does betray,

And toat thou well dost know; In blasphemy he came to thee,

And did blaspheine my Name; Thou wish'd it now to fall on he-

So all thy foes I'll shanie, If they will say another way,

We do not wish it here; • Though he the Woman did betray,

“ Her guilt we will not clear, « To have'it laid on Satan's head,

« But let her guilt go on." Then as the Psalm mankind do read,

They could not bear for Man; But now the same I do discern,

'Tis to the Serpent plac'd: And in like manner men are come,

Their Lord for to diigrace; Then surely I, who dwell on high,

Haveshed niy Blood in vain,
If men go on my enemies,

And Satan's cause maintain.
But if they turn, in sorrow mourn,

And all begin like thee-
« On Satan's head it might be laid,

“ Hisblaspheiny, we see, " Will never cease, to bring in peace

« We wish him for to fall..' Then their rebellion let them turn- .

For I shalt answer all,

.: OF THE PSALMS.',, That gifts for them shall surely come; "

Their PARDON I'll implore;
And give my Kingdom unto them

And I shall give them more:
My Spirit strong on them shall come,,"

In blessings to abound, ..
When Satan's power is overturn'd;

And I have chaind him down. Then men may say from day to day,

“ We benefits receive, . “Strong from our God, what he hathsaid bo'

“ His words we do believe; ' "! “ He loads us here, as doth appears."

“Our Bibles here are true;' “We know the Spirit cannot eri

“ Bring all before our view: : * Our Bibles here we see them clear, ..

“ This PROMISE made at FIRST, “ And now the mystery we see clear,

“llow plain the truth must burst « On Satan's head, as she hath said;

" It must be laid by she; “ Because by Man 'twas never done

“ Adam at first, we see, “ Cast it on God, who felt the rod;!

“ And suffer'd here for Man; How.. « And David here did so appear, '?

• To cast it back on them.
But now from she we plain do see, "*

“She cast the whole on Hell;
“ Can we appear in conscience here."

“Her wisdom to condemn, “When for our good we know she stood

“Though he as teak was cast?"
Did he appear more strong than her?,

Was he not soon betray'd?
But was his justice then as clear,..!

To cast it on MY HEAD? tin
So now let-Man the trial stand,

And answer from thy word; b.!!
How they'll appear to answer here,

Still to condemn their God?
They've still blam'd Manin all they've dotie,

And David they blame here;
They judg'd it oruelty in Man

To speak in words severe;
But now 'tis come to thy weak hand, ...

Thou speak'st a different way;
T'hen how can men the whole condemn :.

Unless they boldly say ,
& "Tis on our God we wish the rod.

* For ever to remain :

ish the rod .'.
