There is a general feeling in this church with regard to the doctrine called spiritual wife doctrine. The Lord is [-] in the last struggle between [-]. God the Father will put forth his hand and conquer a [-] of [-] a godly people. ... I've done as I was told, there is not a man have twenty to twenty-five but I can get five wives to his one, who gave me that power, I got it by being faithful, there is not a girl etc take all you can get and see what you can do go a preach? that I may gather thousands they want to give? that [-] of [-] they must take what's behind because they have gone? [-] have brought? it in when my train and his train filled the temple, they want to drive and command and tell me its the duty to be sealed to me and then they can come trailing behind you, its your works will follow you to glory or misery - let the word come now, I never was more willing to go than tonight. I'm going right into the world and deal unrightly. I cant do this because I have a wife the Lord will raise up a hold seed. ...
