Thomas Lipeat speaks with an apparition (Anonymous 22) which appears in the shape of the Moon. The apparition asks him, along with John Mowlin, to preach the Gospel of all men to repent. Lipeat suspects the apparition is not God, as it asks Lipeat to omit that he heard the Voice of God, but rather just that he had a Vision.(5)

Thomas Lipeat is visited by a vision of a ball of fire (Anonymous 22), which speaks to him. This ball of fire had "great streams of light" streaming forth from it, and it tells Thomas Lipeat that "The peace of him is at hand." This apparition visits Lipeat on several more occasions, repeating the same words, eventually adding "The Deceiver of Nations was gone forth, and had deceived many; but now the everlasting Gospel of Jesus Christ is to be preached; then the Deceiver of Nations shall deceive them no more." However, upon praying, Thomas Lipeat pleads with God "that the Truth might appear," and found through prayer that this vision was "from the Divell." The apparition counsels Lipeat to speak with John Mowlin.(4 - 5)
