Excerpt from Selections From the Writings and Sermons of David Willson
I will here note that I hitherto had recei'ved some hope in having part in the restoration of ancient glory, and therefore was the more grievously disappointed, as expecting by what I had received, I should have part in the Christian Church only. But I sorrowed no longer than the dawning of the next morning light, when I received the same call and retired again, and I expressly saw the same person in another garment colored as the skies, ornamented with the lights of heaven wholly, and spark ling with unusual lustre, with a border of gold compassing the mantle round about. I then stood in difficulty in my situation to know what was to be done with it, for I knew as before at the appearance it was God's visitation of great mercy to the restoring of ancient glory, which is long fallen. In an exceeding careful and gentle manner, he lifted up the first covering and placed the other in like manner as he had done before, under it, and I saw that Jewish glory was nearest to my heart, and the last visitations of God to His people, and that He would come here after, and dwell with them Himself, and receive all glory; I now had received an assurance that I had part both in present and ancient order, but that I must first ornament the Christian Church with all the glory of Israel and afterwards become nothing myself therein, but resign\all to God's protection, for He, after me, would take care of His own people.
Throughout his writings, Mr. Willson expounds the old dispensation as, much as the new, Moses as much as Jesus. He gives his reason for doing so in the following quotation?
