The Key of David
By Warder Cresson (Michael Boaz Israel ben Abraham).
My Confession of Faith.
1st. I believe in the Unity of God, that is, in Only One Almighty, All-Supreme, Unchangeable God, who is Indivisible without Comparison, as God Without Co-Equal, Rival or Adjunct as God.
2d. I therefore cannot and do not believe in a "Trinity," or in the only one Indivisible God being divided; or in "Three Gods being One," or "One being Three;" but I believe that we should "love the Only One God, with all our heart, with all our soul, and with all our might," Deut. 6:5, "and our neighbor as ourselves." Lev. 19:18.
3d. I believe in God's Most Holy Law, and the "Ten Commandments," being the very best Law ever given to man to teach him his whole duty towards his God, his neighbor, and himself.
4th. I believe in God's Most Holy Law being the very best constitution, and strength of that incorporeal Being, or Existence, we call God; and as the Law of the constitution of man is the strength of his corporeal Being, or Existence, here on earth, so is the Law of God the constitution and strength of his incorporeal Being, or Existence.
5th. I believe in the Resurrection of the Just and Unjust, "some to everlasting life, and some to shame and everlasting contempt." See Dan. 12:2. I therefore believe in future rewards and punishments.
6th. I believe most firmly in the truth of all the words and predictions of God's Most Holy Prophets, and that they will be all literally fulfilled, first, and afterwards spiritually, most faithfully.
7th. I believe in the coming of the same Prophet Elijah, in the very same Body that he ascended in, when taken "up in the chariot of Fire," 2 Kings. 2:11 and 12.
8th. I believe most firmly in the coming of that Messiah, or literally anointed of the Law and the Prophets, King David in the Resurrection, and in Messiah Ben Joseph in the "time of trouble," and in NO OTHER; and that they will come in these "Last Days," and not 1800 years ago in the Meridian of time, and that neither of these Messiahs can be God, nor never was God, nor never will be God; but God's most exalted, and most highly gifted creatures, next to himself.
