“O ye spiritual assembly!…”

O ye spiritual assembly! 1
As ye were gathered in the meeting of hospitality with the utmost longing for the knowledge of God, that 555 meeting was mentioned in the divine Kingdom and you became favored with special bounty. Such gatherings are very praiseworthy and acceptable, for all beget joy and fragrance, the hearts become illumined and the despondent souls become heavenly.
Likewise, thou I was remote in so far as the body is concerned, I was near to the friends in heart and spirit and close to the believers in that assembly.
I entreat God that your assembly wax greater day by day and the meeting of the love of God become adorned with celestial attributes, so that the confirmation of the Kingdom of God descend continually.
1. To the Buffalo (N.Y.) assembly.   [ Back To Reference]
