The Apocalyps Prologue.

Wherein a revolution or
returne, Exprest, as in
those dayes “it came to
passe”
, when as City
and Countrey opprest
so: By such an universall
imposd taxx: Inns so full that for our
only Saviour to be borne in. No place but an
open Stable afforded: And thus like the truth Pwhich π1v
which no Corners or Curtaines requires. The
joyfull tydings they in the wide field, First
saluted with them: Shepheards that kept
watch the glory from the Lord by night which
shone round about them.

So lastly at his second comming, or returne,
also reveald to be afore hand, the watchfull
Pastors saluted: over Spirituall Flocks
from him, saying: “‘I am Alpha and Omega,
the morning Starre and evening both:
the first and the last’”
. As this the Lord of
Sabbaths Angel whose countinance as the
Sun, and lighted at the evening of time with
the seven Starrs, &c. And Golden Candlesticks
all watch Lights round about him,
even so farther for the little Booke of Life,
who had its Swadle—Bands (as it were unloosd:
with Sevenfold Seales bound so fast

And therefore to say the truth,
Though the Bottomlesse pit freely opend,
no wonder: affording beside evill Spirits their
Fellowship, Munition also of all Kinds,
And the winds let loose out of their Prisons,
And Wrathfull Vialls the last powrd out,
Who shall commisserate their Condition?
when open house or Court (as it were) kept
in Heaven, inviting all, Darkenesse notwithstanding
preferd at last shall be before Liflawed-reproduction3 characters
Like those frivolous and light excuses made of
marriage: its mutability preferd above the estate π2v
estate of Angels: And before eternall life:
Farmes their Leases or the like, as sold their
life in blessed Paradice for such a toy.

Thus no marvel, although the infernall
pit opend, where those Legions of Wormes or
Locusts swarming out. Our Pruining Hookes
have turned into Swords, our union into division;
And so much for these present vigilent
dayes of ours from which nothing conseald
is, or hidden, even the things in the little
golden booke as with no little expedition are
presented here.

Wherefore in the day of Judgements

Revelation
as whatsoever spoken in

that hath an eare let him heare
what the Spirit of prophesie
saith, and in time repent and amend,
or expect a blow for his

Though hastning with winged
time: yet some more
Evidence requisit in this a matter
of such weight the day of judgement:
And so shewes a doore

“Nothing conseald or hidden, as heavens

Inthroned under a Canopey,
raine bowe like: Where all in
Priestly Vestments round about
those Elders with restlesse Thundering
voices extolling his name
who lives for ever and ever. “And
Holy, Holy, Holy, crying out as it
were glory be to the Father, &c.
Amen.”
For whose pleasure all
things created. As for the lamps
before the Throne, to wit the year
of God call’d the seven Spirits of
God, of the same influence with
the seven Stars, requires no farther
repetition being both one:
Neither these in the likenes here
of Saints and Angels, in Heaven
“whose wings so full of eyes beforefore B3r13
and behind signifying those
eye witnesses their watchfullnesse and
as personating”
the blessed Prophets and Evangelists: So lastly farther
for the mysterie or morall of
these crown’d Elders expresly
shews,
How many intered Princes in
this Isle since the conquest which
in the space of seven hundred
yeares last past in Alabaster
Shrowds clothed, That have
cast their Crownes before the
Throne or before the great day.

And without boasting or
amplifying, these the truth
in few words: “This blessed Booke
first cryed, ‘He that hath an eare let
him heare.’
And here by a strong Angel
proclam’d: ‘Who is worthy to open
the booke in the right hand of him
sitting upon the Throne’”
: No other
then the misterie of times and seasons,
in the yeare of the worlds
Redemption, 16251625. to be reveald
or unseald. And because this so
difficult (no man found worthy
&c
) John that therefore much wept,
by that Elder willed to weep no more B4r15
more. Informed Ecce Leo radix David, vicet, to open the booke
and loose the sevenfold seales”
: being
not improper to explain this likewise,
as he said, I am Joseph, so
am I David”
, This name of mine
enterd here: by that Elder even
Daniel, as much to say, “Goe thy
way John, let those words satisfie thee”

sealed up untill the time of the

Even so let us every Creature

And the Sonne of Thunder

And unto what Nation, this new

For evidence here of the Conquerer
& Rufus, here behold their
ancient
Seales: “Where first saw a
White Horse”

him a Bowe, and a Crowne given unto
him”

Whereby cleere as day given to
understand “the Sonne of God reveald
out of the Scripture to these
very Isles. Wherefore listen O Isles”
.

And this misterie of time sealed
with the yeares foure seasons,
their discriptions, The Sun like a
Conquerour: And Gods word like the
Sunne which overcomes whatsoever

Dispells all darkenesse, saying: Hee C2r19
“He that hath an eye come and see”:
The worlds eye, like an expert
Horseman upon his Carreer:
running his restlesse course about,
who first enters the victorious
crowned yvory Ramme, the
Wholesome Spring more then Gold to
be embraced, the Odorifferous Spring
giving to every creature Life
.

The second Rider so furious,
he on the Red Horse, giving all
one word, Come and see: Not
difficult to be discern’d, the Crabb
at all points
armed, Summers scorching
rayes: when red as fire all
:
Slaying in Armes as it were with
Sythes and such like no short
weapon.

C2The C2v 20

The third a Blacke Horse, “he
that sate on him, a paire of Ballance
in his hand”
, in his proper colours and
complexion signified not inferior to
his fellowes, as Automes voice

cleeres it, who these Celestiall
Horsemen, or Riders were, “a voice
heard in the midst of them, saying,
‘A measure of Wheat for a peny,
and three measures of Barley. And
hurt not
the wine and oylel’
,”
even
the Sun in his circuit passing by
the Equinoctiall, weighting equall
houres to day and night:
“Thus all the world come and behold
also the fourth seasons misterie”
, explained
in this new Calender or
Prognostication.

The C3r 21

The fourth a pale Horse, he
that sate on him called Death.
Or like the last day so gastly and
paile the grizled Goate with his
Beard. Hoary Winter its wann visage
that starvs with hunger young
and old
, shaking every Limbe.

And these Characters pointing
at those foure Beasts, Aries,
Taurus, Leo, Capricorne, Like as
the foure Evangelist. By winged
Beasts foure, full of eyes. Which
Motto, “come and see”, may serve
them to “which rests not Day nor
Night”
.

And after foure of the Seales opend C3v22
opened the mistery shewed of the
foure seasons, the Suns restlesse
course (to say) finish’d. The
next offer’d to considerations veiw,
in this Story or Treatise, is the
blessed case of those poore Soules intreated
a little Season to rest: till their

Fellow Souldiers and Brethren
killed as they, Whose Blood
for the Testimony they held
crying so loud, “How long Lord”,
&c. to wit, to the day of vengeance,
as behold defferd no longer
the day of Judgement immediatly
which followes in its dreadfull
likenesse, when as fulfilld,
white robes given likewise
to “the rest of their brethren arrayed”, toC4r23
(to wit) “in cleane Shrowds”.

“Then Time to his untimely end
comes, whose thride of life suddainly
cutt off, of whose sable Hearse thus,
& what mourners accompanying the
corps of time, about 44. aged in the
midest of his dayes”
: First the quaking
Earth Mother of all in such
a consumption. The Sunn next
as blacke as Sackcloth of haire,
coverd all over. And the Moone
overwatched with her red face
looking like blood, the condoleling
Heavens shedding their stars
instead of teares as fast, impatient
windes as loud: their shrill
Throat setting forth, ready to rent C4v24
rent all assunder with Sighes
hollow Grones.

So all departing as they came:
the Heavens as it were quartering
those Ancient Coates the foure Seasons,
which were like Scutchens roled
up together like a Scrole: The Islands
carried away with the violence of the
Seas uproare
: Each acting a part,
the Kings and Great men ringing
out such a Peale, all flying away
and hyding themselves for
the great day of his wrath to
come as who able to stand, routed
all, surprised in such a moment

And like as about halfe an houre
after the clocke had stricken

shews about the space of halfe an
houre there was silence in Heaven,
after the seales were opened
