when_o a_o man_n be_v new_o bear_v of_o the_o spirit_n he_o be_v then_o a_o new_a bottle_n a_o vessel_n of_o honour_n fit_a for_o his_o master_n use_n now_o say_v christ_n man_n do_v not_o put_v old_a

wherefore_o if_o he_o be_v dead_a with_o christ_n from_o the_o rudiment_n of_o the_o world_n why_o as_o though_o live_v in_o the_o world_n shall_v he_o be_v subject_a to_o

i_o endeavour_v to_o draw_v they_o off_o from_o fleshly_a ordinance_n and_o the_o element_n of_o the_o world_n that_o by_o nature_n be_v no_o god_n by_o preach_v unto_o they_o the_o mystery_n of_o

those_o that_o former_o will_v have_v pluck_v out_o their_o eye_n and_o have_v give_v they_o unto_o he_o to_o do_v he_o good_a because_o he_o tell_v they_o the_o truth_n and_o come_v not_o unto_o

heaven_n in_o spirit_n how_o earnest_a and_o desirous_a be_v he_o to_o have_v all_o those_o that_o former_o he_o have_v society_n with_o and_o have_v preach_v the_o gospel_n through_o infirmity_n unto_o to_o have_v the_o like_a spiritual_a enjoyment_n in_o they_o and_o to_o be_v bring_v up_o to_o the_o same_o perfection_n and_o unity_n of_o the_o spirit_n with_o himself_o now_o that_o paul_n

god_n be_v love_n and_o here_o you_o may_v see_v this_o nature_n in_o paul_n for_o after_o he_o know_v the_o oneness_n and_o unity_n of_o the_o saint_n with_o the_o father_n he_o must_v make_v it_o

lead_v away_o from_o his_o former_a profession_n with_o the_o error_n of_o the_o wicked_a think_v it_o strange_a that_o whilst_o they_o be_v in_o this_o veil_n of_o flesh_n they_o shall_v be_v so_o translate_v into_o the_o image_n of_o god_n as_o to_o worship_v he_o in_o such_o a_o spiritual_a manner_n above_o ordinance_n but_o here_o be_v the_o difference_n between_o they_o and_o paul_n christ_n be_v form_v in_o he_o and_o manifest_v unto_o he_o as_o the_o substance_n of_o all_o these_o shadow_n he_o do_v by_o what_o he_o apprehend_v of_o he_o see_v the_o vanity_n of_o the_o one_o and_o the_o glory_n and_o excellency_n of_o the_o other_o compare_v spiritual_a thing_n with_o his_o spiricualized_a understanding_n and_o therefore_o he_o say_v my_o little_a child_n of_o who_o itravell_n in_o birth_n again_o until_o christ_n be_v form_v in_o you_o and_o know_v you_o not_o that_o except_o christ_n be_v in_o you_o you_o be_v reprobate_n and_o in_o other_o place_n stand_v fast_o in_o the_o liberty_n wherewith_o christ_n have_v make_v you_o free_a and_o be_v not_o entangle_v again_o with_o the_o yoke_n of_o bondage_n but_o as_o the_o jew_n think_v that_o christ_n speak_v of_o the_o temple_n at_o jerusalem_n that_o solomon_n build_v when_o he_o speak_v of_o his_o body_n and_o as_o nicodemus_n think_v that_o christ_n have_v speak_v of_o a_o natural_a birth_n when_o he_o speak_v of_o a_o spiritual_a so_o do_v these_o man_n unto_o who_o paul_n write_v compare_v spiritual_a thing_n to_o their_o natural_a and_o carnal_a understanding_n think_v that_o he_o speak_v of_o a_o natural_a man_n when_o he_o speak_v of_o the_o spiritual_a they_o think_v that_o he_o have_v speak_v of_o natural_a freedom_n when_o indeed_o he_o speak_v of_o a_o spiritual_a freedom_n such_o as_o he_o enjoy_v when_o he_o be_v in_o the_o stock_n the_o enjoyment_n thereof_o be_v then_o so_o gladsome_a so_o joyous_a and_o sweet_a unto_o he_o that_o it_o make_v he_o sing_v for_o joy_n of_o heart_n as_o god_n say_v in_o the_o last_o of_o isaiah_n but_o one_o when_o he_o be_v in_o bond_n he_o be_v yet_o free_a and_o so_o shall_v all_o the_o saint_n of_o god_n who_o lot_n

will_v uphold_v they_o with_o the_o right_a hand_n of_o his_o righteousness_n it_o be_v now_o the_o weakness_n of_o many_o in_o our_o day_n to_o think_v that_o because_o they_o do_v not_o apprehend_v god_n in_o themselves_o therefore_o he_o be_v not_o in_o they_o and_o because_o that_o they_o be_v not_o able_a to_o comprehend_v the_o father_n that_o therefore_o he_o be_v not_o able_a to_o
