14. And thy seed shall be as the dust of the earth: and thou shall spread abroad to the west, and to the east, and to the north, and to the south: And in thee and in thy seed shall all the families of the earth be blessed.'
Here is shewn how the angels of God will minister unto Jesus Christ, and to those who will be made like him in the new world, which is the seed of Jacob, and in them will all the families of the earth be blessed.
The families of the earth are the aliens, for it is said in Revelation, 14th chapter, 3rd verse: The hundred and forty-four thousand, which are of all the tribes of Israel, are redeemed from the earth: for they will be born again, as it is said in John, 3rd chapter, 3rd and 5th verses: “Except a man be born again, of water, and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God. which meaneth, he cannot inherit that kingdom; and as it is said in the 1st chapter, and 13th verse: “Born not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.”
For by being begotten of God the blood will be made flesh: and the flesh will be quickened by the Spirit, and they will be the sons of God; as a virgin not defiled.
So it is said in 1st John, 3rd chapter, 2nd verse, "Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know, that when he shall appear we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is.
But the aliens, of which the pruned fig-tree, is set a figure, are still under the birth of the first Eve, which is the old world, of which blood is the life; they will not be redeemed from the earth, so that they cannot enter into this kingdom to inherit it; but they will still remain the families of the earth, as tenants or servants, for a thousand years, yet
they will be blessed in the seed of Jacob, by being servants to then, according to the blessing of Abraham to his son Ishmael; Genesis 17th chapter, 18th yerse: “And Abraham said unto God, O that Ishmael might live before thee."
It is written in Obadiah, 21st verse: “And Saviours shall come upon
Mount Zion; to judge the Mount of Esau: and the Kingdom shall be the Lord's."
When the Lord comes to make the kingdoms of this world the kingdoms of himself, and creates the old carth afresh, which is the world to come, which is the body of man being made like his glorious body: those who are to be aliens will flee into the clefts of the rocks, and the caves of the earth.
These are they of which the Lord testified in Revelation, 2nd chapter, 24th verse: “(As many as have not this doctrine, and which have not known the depths of Satan, as they speak), I will put upon you none other burden."
Afterwards they will come out, and seek Mount Zion, which is the new world, and will fall down before them: and the new world will grant them their lives, and take them for servants.
So the Lord said unto Rebekah in Genesis, 25th chapter, 23rd verse: "Two nations are in thy womb, and two manner of people shall be seperated from thy bowels; and the one people shall be stronger than the other people, and the elder shall serve the younger.”
Signifying the old world. This could not mean the former Hebrews, nor the Gentiles, for the Hebrews held the sceptre over the Gentiles; and the Gentiles now over the Hebrews; so they were only typical of these two nations, seeing they both have come short of the promise.
In Exodus, 24th chapter, 10th and 11th verses:
is a vision of Moses, and seventy of the elders of Israel. "And they saw the God of Israel: and there was under his feet as it were a paved work of a sapphire stone, and as it were the body of heaven in his clearness.
11. Also they saw God, and did eat and drink.*
Here is a likeness, of the glorious state of the Kingdom to come. And the Seventy nobles of the children of Israel, who went up into the Mount, and saw God, are the type of the world to come, who will be made like him, then they will see God and live; but the rest of the people who went not up into the Mount, and saw not God, are the type of the aliens, who will still live by the life of the old world, which is the blood, for a thousand years, the half time; but the house of Israel to life eternal: and Paul testifies in Ist Corinthians, 15th chapter, 50th verse: “Flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God.”
It is said further in Exodus, 24th chapter, 15th -18th verses : “Moses went up into the Mount, and a cloud covered the Mount.
16. And the glory of the Lord abode upon Mount Sinai, and the cloud covered it six days: and the seventh day he called unto Moses out of the midst of the cloud.
17. And the sight of the glory of the Lord was like devouring fire, on the top of the Mount, in the eyes of the children of Israel.
18. And Moses went into the midst of the cloud, and gat him up into the Mount: and Moses was in the Mount forty days, and forty nights.”
Moses being in the Mount forty days and forty * The Deists and Atheists say, that the Scriptures contradict one another; in one part is is said, "No man shall see God and live;" and here it is said. “Thep saw God and did eat and drink;" but it is evident it was only a vision, for no man has seen God in his glorified state, with his natural eye, of which blood is the life: but with his spiritual eye of whic blood is not the life, but the Spirit.

nights is typical of forty years; that within forty years the Law and Gospel should be obeyed, which Christ was the pattern of; for Christ also was seen forty days upon this planet after he rose from the sepulchre, which is typical of the same.
And John says in Revelation, 1lth chapter, 1st and 2nd verses:
“And there was given me a reed like unto a rod, and the angel stood, saying, Rise, and measure the temple of God, and the altar, and them that worship therein.
2. But the court which is without the temple leave out, and measure it not; for it is given unto the Gentiles: and the holy city shall they tread under foot forty and two months.”
Which is set typical of forty and two years, that the house of Israel should keep the law within that time, but the Gentiles should seek to destroy them that kept it.
And the cloud covering the Mount six days, is typical of 6,000 years, that the Kingdom of God should be as though it was hid under a veil, here a little and there a little in Scripture, and revealed by little and little: but on the 7th day, the glory of the Lord was like devouring fire, in the eyes of the children of Israel which were not on the Mount: which is typical of the beginning of the seventh thousand years; then the aliens will see the glory of the Lord, which will cause them to flee into the clefts of the rocks and the holes of the eartb.
It is said by Paul in Romans, 8th chapter, 29th verse: "For whom he did fore-know, he also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the first-born among many brethren.
Christ was the pattern of the new world, which are those who will be made like him when he
appears; for he rested on the woman's seed, and did the work which the first Adam was commanded
to do; he then took it, and made it into the image of God, and ascended with it for a season, which is till the fulness of the Gentiles.
As he said in John, 16th chapter, 7th verse : “It is expedient for you that I go away: for if I go not away, the Comforter will not come unto you.”
And now the fulness of times being come, which is the six thousand years. God will give to those that ask, the fulness of his Spirit; which will shew them all things, and will cause them to do the same work that he did, which will fulfil his words, John 14th chapter, 12th verse: “He that believeth in me, the works that I do shall he do also.” And it will make them like him, to have power to reign over the angels, and the old world.
It is written by Malachi, 2nd chapter, 15th verse: “And did he not make one? yet had he the residue of the Spirit: and wherefore one? That he might seek a goodly seed."
Jesus was the one that had the fulness of the Spirit, and by the Spirit he did the work of God, and then he ascended unto his Father, and is now come again in Spirit, to see who will seek for the goodly seed whom he fore-knew, that they may be conformed to his image, after the fulness of his Spirit has done in them the work that he did, that the angels may be subject to them, as to him.
So it is said in Isaiah, 11th chapter, 1lth verse: “And it shall come to pass in that day, that the Lord shall set his hand again the second time to recover the remnant of his people.” This he now doing by his Spirit.
It is said in Ecclesiastes, 4th chapter, 15th ver. “I considered all the living which walk under the sun, with the second child that shall stand up
in his stead.”
