"The sceptre shall not depart from Judah, nor a lawgiver from between his feet until Shiloh come; and unto him shall the gathering of the people be." This we may remember was a prophecy of the former dispensation respecting our blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, unto whom in this glorious gospel day the gathering of the people is to be, and correspondent with this declaration is that of the Apostle, where he says "May the Lord direct your hearts into the love of God and into the patient waiting for Christ," for him who in this gospel day is come by his inward and spiritual appearance in our hearts the second time without sin unto salvation, to us as we wait for his inward appearance in our hearts, and submit to his government there, it is by this means that we may experience salvation, may be enabled to become in deed and in truth his disciples; his followers in taking up our daily cross and following him: O that this may be the endeavour of each of our minds, thus to wait for his inward and spiritual appearance in our hearts; then may we receive instruction, we may experience being rightly directed, strengthened and enabled to walk in that way which brings true peace into our minds, and leads unto everlasting happiness, for he teaches as never man taught, and we may in these our silent meetings together, each be thus instructed by him, and receive benefit and instruction also by instrumental labours, if he who gave gifts unto men, should be pleased to call for his dependant children to exercise their gifts which he hath in his goodness and mercy bestowed upon them. O then let us reverently and thankfully bear in mind that the sceptre was not to depart from Judah, nor a lawgiver from between his feet until Shiloh comes, and unto him shall tile gathering of the people be.
