George Fox (1624-1691)

Epistle 204
1661

"Feel the Seed in your selves"

(To all Friends, Prisoners)

DEAR Friends and Brethren, The Seed of God feel all in your selves, which is the Heir of the Power of God, that ye may sit down in the Possession of the same, inheriting the Power, and the Promise, and the Gospel. In which Power of God is the Fellowship, . . . which never hath an End, which brings Life and Immortality to Light; which Power of God was, before that was, which darkneth Life and Immortality from People. So, walk in the Truth, then ye walk with the God of all Truth; and walk in the Righteousness, and then ye walk with the Righteous God in all Peace: Walk in Holiness, and then ye walk in that, in which ye see God, which they that do not, see him not. . . .

. . .So, in that Meet, in the Seed, in that wait, in the Power of God, in which ye have Life, in that keep your Meetings; . . . Which Power of God brings from all the barren Mountains, where is Death, to the Beginning, where is Life. My Love is to all Friends, in the Everlasting Seed of God, that hath the Promise of Life, and doth inherit the same; in which is the Fellowship with God, and one with another.

G.F.
