For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Savior; who will have all men to be saved, and come to the knowledge of the truth. For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus; who gave himself a ransom for all, to be testified in due time. 1 Timothy 2:3-6

My little children, these things write I unto you that you sin not. And if any man sin, we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous; And he is the propitiation for our sins; and not ours only, but also for the sins of the whole world. 1 John 2:1

"The Order of Melchizedek made the Light teachable." Mary Purnell.

The Old Testament fathers, prophets and heroes were the carriers of the seed of promise. They were the family chosen to experience the extra-ordinary, that we now call the scriptures (histories) that illuminate the hand of God within and throughout His creation.

This Word made flesh, after the divine image of the Father and Mother is the substance of all the prophetic scriptures and for which all scriptures were written and held as sacredly divine; teaching the promised restoration of the Word in flesh to recreate the Eden condition in the flesh, upon this earth.

In Christ shall ALL be made alive, but every man in his own order.1 Corinthians 15: 22-23.
There is a salvation for all, and a special salvation for believers: 1 Timothy 4:10

Under the voice of the seventh angel messenger, at this latter-day, is the unsealing of the Revelation given to John. Finishing the mystery of God as declared to his servants, the prophets. The revealing of mysteries, sealed from the world: even the Spirit of Truth, will once again bring on the great opposition and War in Heaven.
2 Timothy chapter 3

The following excerpts, taken from the 4 books of The Seven Baskets of Fragments, listed below show deeper levels of both understanding and prophecy concerning the several important understandings of the faith of the promised Messiah, Jesus Christ, "who will have all men to be saved and come to the knowledge of the truth." In Abraham: I will make thy seed to multiply as the stars of heaven, and will give thy seed all these countries; AND IN THY SEED SHALL ALL THE NATIONS OF THE EARTH BE BLESSED. Genesis 26:4

These "fragments" are not given in any order of theme but as they appear in these recordings dated from June,1906 through April,1909; inner court meetings delivered by the seventh messenger, Mary and Benjamin Purnell.

Tests will come to see which kingdom you want.

If cannot get to first cause, how can you find a remedy; therefore a mystery.

God intends to overthrow the wisdom of the wise by insignificant, dried-up looking people.

Israel inclined to want to be in favor with the world, but according to visitation we must be brought down a great deal----even to be the greatest stink upon the planet.
