Verily I say unto thee, thou shalt by no means come out thence, till thou hast paid the utmost farthing." Ques. Who is the adversary?

The final resurrection, because the wicked, over whom the second death hath power, rise not at the first resurrection, but stops in until the final resurrection, till it be proved who is the author.
Romans, 6th chapter, 25th verse: “The wages of sin is death.” Luke, 7th chapter, 41st and 42nd verses : " And Jesus uttered a parable, say: ing, There was a certain creditor which had two debtors; the one owed five hundred pence, and the other fifty. And when they had nothing to pay, he frankly forgave them both,”
All men whose bodies die, and see corruption, are debtors, the one the righteous dying the death of the body only; and the other the second death will have power over them till the final resurrection, which makestwo debtors: the righteous receiving the forgiveness of their debts of their souls before their bodies die, of which the fifty pence is typical: and are preserved under the altar, till the first resurrection, which is within the sixth thousand years, then their corruptible bodies will put on incorrupiton and they will be as the angels. And the wicked who are confined in hell, till the final resurrection, which is at the expiration of the seventh thousand years, when the prisoner and the author will be brought face to face; then they will receive forgiveness of their debts, of which the five hundred pence is typical, and their corruptible bodies will put on incorruption, and they will return to their former estate, which is lower than the angels, which the first Adam was in, before he was driven out of the garden, that he was inoculated by the fruit of the woman. Then will it be proved what the blood at the cross was shed for, that the utmost farthing might be paid for the debtors who had nothing to pay with.
For as the transgression came by the woman, handing forth her blood, which was the evil fruit; that they became debtors : so it is by the blood of the woman's seed being shed on the cross for a sacrifice for sin, that they will be forgiven their debts. The first debtor fifty pence, which is the lesser debt, because he believed before his body died; and the second five hundred pence, which is the greater debt, because he believed not before his body died, so his soul is holden in prison by the officer, till the final resurrection. And as it was by the woman giving way to the serpent that the transgression came, so it by believing that the woman's seed, Jesus was lifted up on the cross, and shed his blood for their transgression, as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, that these two debtors are forgiven; Numbers, 21st chapter, 6--.9 verse. “ And the Lord sent fiery serpents among the people, and they bit the people, and much people of Israel died. 7. Therefore the people came to Moses, and
