This magnificent and awe-inspiring prophecy summarizes the key truths of the Kingdom of God and the preparations necessary in the sons of God who would be visibly manifested to the world at the end of this age. It also enjoins and strictly charges these saints to suffer the Spirit of burning and fiery breathe to cleanse every part within them until they arrive at the stature of the measure of the fulness of Christ - the first company of humankind to attain to God's perfect image. This prophecy, along with the extensive commentary by Larry Hodges, is also available in Spanish.
This book outlines the various steps along the way to attaining to the First Resurrection. Practical issues - such as glorification through death to self and resurrection from same, probation upon resurrection, ascension, and descension to fully manifest and communicate the God-nature - are addressed and dealt with. Great encouragement and comforts are offered by the Spirit to those saints who, with diligence and devotion, are pursuing after this great and high calling of God in Christ Jesus. A companion read with this book is Larry Hodges' The Election of Mann, an allegorical teaching of the interplay between the Soul and Spirit until the feminine Soul is brought into perfect submission to the masculine Spirit - where her true rest is!
Many a saint have wondered about the true nature and characteristic components of the New Jerusalem, which is the mother of us all saints. With the prevailing teachings in Christendom that makes "heaven" look only slightly more glorious than Beverly Hills in California, complete with beaches and golf parks and other such frivolities, this magnificent vision shows forth the true glories that are attainable by God's elect here and now in the Spirit as we press on to attain all there is to attain to in our blessed Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. It will certainly surprise the average Christian reader. But if received in a good heart, it will propel the hungering Christian to higher levels of understanding and attainment in their walk and journey to full, mature sonship. It is chock full of the true riches which are in fact the very nature and character of God forming gradually inside of the faithful saint and child of God. (The print version of this article is in two parts - two books).

Or a supplement to The Tree of Faith for the further confirmation of the same, together with a discovery of the New World. "By faith Noah, being warned of God, prepared and ARK to the saving of his house, by which he condemned the world and became heir of the righteousness which is by faith." - Hebrews 11:7
Given Forth To A Translated Spirit (i.e. Jane Leade)
The teaching of the restitution of all things, so central to understanding the work of God in His creation, seems to have been hidden from most of Christendom for the last 2,000 years. From 1697, when this article was first published, the Lord has used other instruments in the Body to further expound upon this foundational truth. Here in this book Jane Leade, against her own initial objections, submits to the Spirit's unfolding of the true mystery of God's unalterable intention to reconcile the whole creation back to Himself. (You may want to also read Larry Hodges' article The All-Encompassing Work of Christ which goes into further detail and gives leads on where further excellent literature dealing with the subject may be obtained).
