A Generall Epistle,

The fold and Flocke of Christ,
and to them that are gone astray, that
say they are Apostles and Catholiques
and are not, &c.

Grace be to you and Peace
from God the Father, and
from our Lord Jesus
, who gave himselfe
for our Sinnes; and in the absence
of his Body for a remembrance the Blessed
Supper, till his second appearing. As
often as we taste thereof, he takes it as a
token we are not unmindfull of his tender
mercy that tasted Death it selfe for
us; so many melting trials and torments,
the innocent Lambe for a brood
of Vipers, whose damme is Death Aiij A3r
whose sting is Sinne, he that washed us
in his owne Blood unto whome there is no
accesse but by Faith; Behold hee commeth,
and every eye shall see him. To
him be glory and dominion for ever and
ever. Amen.

It seemed good unto me, having a perfect
understanding given mee in these
things, and the dispensation of them, an
office not a trade; to roote out, to pull
downe, to build, and to plant, by the
grace and bounty of Jesus our Lord
God. To present this Visitation to your
view, joyning you together of the first
Arke, and universall great House vessels
of Honor and dishonor, some cleane and
purified, others having need of purging.

Former things are come to passe, and
new things I declare unto you; no age so
weake, nor sex excusing; when the A3v
Lord shall send and will put his words in
their Mouth. He powreth out his Spirit
upon his hand-maidens; the rich are
sent emptie away even so Father for it
seemed good in thy sight.

Pressed and constrained with obedience
to him, and Duty towards you;
saying no other things then the Prophets
and Apostles did say should come to
passe, that yee might know the certainty
of those things, wherein yee have beene
instructed, whether you will heare or whether
you will forbeare.

It is a salve to annoint and open the
eyes of the blinde, to bring them that sit
in darkenesse a light, to leade them out
of the Prison-house; others by meanes
of remembrance, (whose annoynting
long since teacheth them all
thinges) to stirre them uppe; A4r
It is a true looking-glasse, a large houreglasse,
Phisicke for the sicke, wholsome
for the whole, milke for the young, and
meate for the strong. It is upon Record
due, an olde debt One and Twenty hunyeares
since; Unto me is given this stone
to polish, unto me this grace is given.

It is as it were a new Song to be sung
before the everlasting Throne, a salutation
for Strangers and the Brethren; if
we love them that love us, if we salute
the Brethren only, what doe wee more
then others; yea but they come at the last
houre, others having borne the heate and
burthen of the Day.

Shall not the lost Son be found againe,
the Father of these that Blaspheme and
are found lyers; But in the eye of our
weakenesse their prosperitie will weave
the webbe of envie; murmure not at the the A4v
good-man of the House. Is it not lawfull;
is it not wrong (as he will) to dispose the
riches of his owne goodnesse; nay, rather
may we not all say, we are unprofitable, we
have both gon out of the way, there is none
that doth good, no not one; nay, are not his
Judgements according to truth; O man
grudge not his grace, dispute not his justice.

But they have bin, and will be to the
worlds end, our persecutors and slaunderers,
need they not so much the more our
Prayers; recompence no man evill for evill;
Therefore let the Congregations of
the faithfull Pray for them, poore, blind,
distracted, naked, wretched people, and
give glory to God, who hath done away
the vaile from these hidden mysteries,
that hindred our stedfast sight, Though to
blinde mindes and deafe harts, this vaile
remaines still untaken away.

Wherein for mine owne part, I challenge
little, not so much as those that
brought to the Tabernacle guifts of their
owne spinning of Blew and other colours;
But rather to be in the number of those
servants, that drew out the wonderfull
Wine for the Bridegroomes Feast, to
beare it to the Governor and the Guests;
though to cast in my myte with others I
was never unwilling.

Finally, to those that require a Signe,
or thinke this Confidence; Boasting that
high stiles are not steps for the declining
age of this weake world to climbe, my
defence is no shorter then free.

Least any should thinke of me above
or better then he seeth me to be, as others
to suspect a forged passe; To present you
with Pearles of that sort or holy things,
I forbeare at this time.


If the debt be paid the secret of the multiplyed
oyle is to my selfe; Though I shut
the Doore or shadow my name, I feare no
faces, smiles nor frownes, for the hope of
Israel, to me no chaines are heavie, it is no
bought nor stolne fire, my ability nor boldnesse
extending so high; yet a Candle too
high mounted for Sathan, and all his attempts
to blowe it out, thrived the Gospell
the lesse, rejected of the Jewes.

But all alike hit not the marke, they
presse forward, wranglers started aside
like a broken Bowe, the match is wonne,
one Foord is not knowne to all Passengers;
eleven strikes the clocke saith he,
twelve saith she; doe these contradict
those that are not against us or with us;
Antichristians those that are not against
us, are with us; Even so, glory be to him
alone (the Set is ours) the houre and set aii B1r
time of whose IudgementJudgement is at hand; and
O Lord remember thy servants Abraham,
Isaac, & Jacob, & looke not to the
stubbornnes, nor to the wickednes of this
People, turne their harts, preserve thy
Church, and his victorious Matie. to tread
downe the power of his enemies, our Soveraigne
gratious Lord and the Queene, annoint
them with thy holy Spirit, Crowne
them with Grace; and forren Princes, especially
the Kings excellent Sister with
a happie life here, and eternall life hereafter.
Be gratious to the remnant of Joseph,
heare I beseech thee the Prayer of
thy servant.

The Servant of Jesus Christ:

O A Sure Daniel
Daniel, — I end Al.

Postscript To maske my name with boldnesse to unmaske Error Icrave
no Pardon, the manner let none dispise; Dreames in times
past have beene interpreted, our Fathers in divers manners
have beene spoken unto, the Winde bloweth where it listeth.

Eleanor Audeley
Reveale O Daniel,
the Great Prince,
the Kinge of Great Britaine,
France, and Ireland,
Defender of the Faith

The Interpretation of
the Visions of the Prophet
Daniel, revealing the Man of Sinne; And the
Morning Starre, before the comming of the Day.

In the Visions of this
Prophet are revealed the
same things contained
in the Revelatiõ, which
God gave to Jesus
, to shew unto his
Servants things which
must shortly come to passe; things that are
not, to bring to nought things that are: And
as he signified to his beloved Servant John, B B2r 2.Pag.
the Contents of the secret Booke by his Angell;
Even so the Lambe slaine by the eternall
Decree purposed from the foundation
of the world; Declared the same things to
the man greatly beloved, his servant Daniel,
unfolded in this present exposition;
drawing the juice of many sorts wanting
roome and leasure, to lay things in order,
wherein the Scripture will repaire the want
of methode. Being not willing for the lighting
of a Match to make a fire, when the
stroke of a Flint is of more facilitie; Speaking
not to a People of a strange Speech and of a
hard Language, but to the House of Israell;
Avoyding mans enticing words; things
without life, give no life, that revealeth not
the testimony of Jesus; at whose Name, a
name above every name, Let every knee
bowe. Heare all yee Children of my people
harken O Earth!

The first vision of this holy Prophet, was
in the 1. yeare of the raigne of Belshazzer,
King of Babilon; from which spirituall
Babilon takes the denomination. One
and Twentie hundred yeares since.

B2v Pag. 3.

Wherein he saw the foure Windes of Heaven,
or the losed Angels bound in the great
River Euphrates the auntient bounds of the
great Roman Empire, that strove upon the
great Sea, and the foure great Beasts, that
came up from the Sea divers one from another.
These blowing Windes had no power
to hurt, till the servants of God were Sealed
in the foreheads, at what time that Cõmonwealth
became a Monarchy, persecuting the
Church of God being then with Child, Travailing
in birth, crying and pained to be delivered
of the man Childe, roaring like a Lyon,
the whole Forrest ringing, ruling all Nations
with a Rod of Iron; that breaketh in
pieces and subdueth all things: He is Alpha
and Omega, so have the servants of God a
Two-fold sence. Besides man including
some other of his Creatures, bearing the
names of men, yet being neither Man nor
Beast; Praise yee him Sun and Moone, &c.

I heard the number of them: And here
ended the Sealing of the first Covenant, a
yoake which our Fathers were not able to
beare, to establish the second which is Spirituall,Bii B3r 4.Pag.
to put his Lawes in their mindes, with
the Pensell of his Grace to write them in
their hard harts, a light Burthen, for the letter
of the Law, graven in stone is the sentence
of death; But the Spirit giveth life to stony
harts, that were dead in trespasses and sinnes;
yea, the whole valley of dead Bodies, turn’d
into Stones and Earth, from Abell the
first Borne, to the last man taken up in the
Field, they are all holy unto the Lord, their
iniquitie is forgiven and forgotten, as a Father,
hee remembreth their sinne no more.

Of these were Sealed to bee of the seed of
Abraham, one hundred forty and foure
Thousand, twelve times twelve Thousand:
Of which faithfull Number Jesus Christ
the Saviour of the world, the only begotten
Sonne of the living God, in the likenesse
of sinfull Flesh without Sinne, the Lyon of
the Tribe of Judah, was sealed on the Eight
day of his Nativitie; The Lyonesse bringing
but one, and but once in her life.

That with the sprinckling and shedding
of his Blood, both Covenants might be sealed;
These were the first Fruits unto God, B3v Pag. 5.
and to the Lambe, having the Token of the
everlasting Covenant, of the great mysterie
in those times, concerning Christ and
his Church, put in the Flesh a Figure of the

Which first Covenant remaines to us a
Patterne of tendernes, not made with hands,
the Heart by a mutuall respect being now
the Closet or secret part, whereby wee Gentiles
are made the tender Spouse, the habitation
of God, fellow heires of the unsearchable
Riches, joyned to Christ the head, that
in times past were the Children of disobedience
and wrath, Aliens from the commonwealth
of Israell, Strangers from the Covenants
of promise, having no hope (without
God) in the world, are now, who were somtimes
farre off; of all Nations, Kindreds and
Tongues; uncircumcised Philistines not of
his Brethren; not of the House of his Father,
By the blood of Jesus Christ made
nigh members, of his Body, of his Flesh, and
of his Bones; greater love and felicitie can
none expresse.

Of which great mysterie, Hipocrites, next Biij B4r 6.Pag.
Harlots, whose counterfeit beautie deceives
not him, whose praise is of men, and not of
God; false Gods, are no partakers; the outward
Token, being common to both. To
assure us of which, receiving the earnest of
his Spirit, that abideth, not crying Master;
Carest thou not, that wee perish; but Abba

Thus our tackling lost without Anchor,
to repayre the ruines and weaknesse of these
decayed, sunke weather-tempest driven bottomes
such Treasures of Millions expended
and bestowed, what burthen, what prizes,
what things God hath prepared to bee the
lading of these vessels of honour; Eye hath
not seene, eare hath not heard, neither hath
entred into the hart of man: To which, all
the Transported affections felt or fained, injoyed
without paines or feare, may seeme
but light dotage as Light and Darknesse
compared, compared with the Crowne and
weight of that Eternall blisse.

The Foure windes prepared for an houre,
and a day, and a moneth, and a yeare; are
the powers of these foure great Beasts shewing B4v Pag. 7.
their degrees of residence; also the finall
Blast is included; The Sea are the Nations
of the Earth.

The beginning and the ending, thus saith
hee to the Sea: Waves drowning one another,
swelling into Mountaines, for glory
foaming out your owne shame. Saying,
haile to the Wood awake, according to your
owne understanding, you have made Idols
and Images, not by my direction, but after
the invention of the Craftsman, and have
exalted your hearts and forgotten mee, giving
my Praise to graven Images, and my
glory to another for your God, (not setting
me before your eyes) you have gotten a Divell,
a false Prophet, whom I sent to prove
you; that takes my lawes in his mouth, not
of love, but for strife and envie: Thinkes he
to say; Lord, Lord, in thy Name wee have
cast out Divels, Preached, and Baptized;
my answer is not unknowne to you both,
though you thinke to plead ignorance, persecuting
and dispising the number of my
little ones.

You onely have I knowne, of all the Families C1r 8 Pag.
of the Earth, whose transgressions doe
hasten your Judgement; Therefore I will
punish you for your iniquities, you shall bee
like the Morning Cloud, and the early dew
that passeth away as the Chaffe that is driven
with a scattering whirle-winde out of the
Flower, as smoake out of a Chimney vanishing
away; And I will bee like a Lyon, as
a Leopard by the way I will wayte and observe
you, and as a Beare that is bereaved of
her Whelpes, I will teare the Kall from your
harts and devoure you; But to the faithfull
I will bee a King, a Saviour; as an Eagle
stirring up her Nest, fluttering over her
young, bearing them upon the wing; So
I will preserve mine inheritance, my Portion
as the Apple of mine eye.

These are the words of the First, that was
like a Lyon, his strength shall overcome the
rest, and take their Dominion away, having
no number of finite parts expressed; the
time of whose undevided Kingdome is infinite
and alwaies; As his yeares have no end,
his Crownes are many; This is the Lyon of
the Tribe of Judah, having of Flesh a tender hart C1v Pag. 9
hart; a mans hart was given unto it; The
Prince of the Kings of the Earth, the first
and the last; And because he is the roote,
and made of the seed of David; Hee is
here accompted amongst these Beasts; This
is hee that sate upon the white Horse the
Circle of the Earth, to judge and make War;
beholding the Inhabitants like Grasshoppers;
and a Bowe and a Crowne was given
unto him; Hee is the Lord of Lords, the
King of Kings, and of his Kingdome there
is no end.

The second Beast like a Beare the Seaventh
head, that had Three ribbes in the
Mouth betweene the Teeth of it, signifying,
Three hundred yeares; this is the devouring
Raigne of the Heathen Romaine Emperours,
which lasted so long, licked by the
Divell; In the Infancie of which Empire,
the Sonne of God was Crucified, and the
Citie of Jerusalem destroyed, wherein the
yearely Sacrifice or feast of the Passover was
solemnized, that in her might be found the
Blood of Prophets and Saints, and of all
that were slaine upon the Earth, in which C C2r 10.Pag.
first seventie yeares, the Apostles and seventie
finished their testimony what they had
seene and heard, after which followed the
over-spreading of abomination spoken of
by our Saviour, making the Sanctuary desolate,
defiled with Carkasses which can
neither see, heare, nor walke, abominable
carrion the house of Prayer, made the Gallery
of the Divell, for his devices stand in.

And this is hee that sate upon the Red
Horse, Having a great Sword given unto;
him, to make Warre with the Church of
God, devouring much Flesh, Burning, Scorching
it with fire, Haile mingled with Blood,
destroying Trees, and all greene grasse,
smote every Herbe, and brake every Tree
and here ended the first Woe with this second
Beast, all fire and horrible Cruelty
such as there was none like it in all the Land
of spirituall Egypt since it became a Nation
and shortly after began the next Woe, where
the fire is not mentioned, because the
smoake is so great thicke darkenesse or heresie,
false doctrine extinguishing the Light
of truth, which shall continue untill the C2v Pag. 11.
third Woe, Hell fire, and Brimstone or Blasphemy,
issuing out of their Mouthes, a great
crye from him that sits upon the Throne,
when Rednesse shall be turn’d into Palenesse
to the Maide behinde the Mill, the Captaine
in the Dongeon, free and bond, because of
the last Plague the second Death.

The third Beast that was like a Leopard,
or halfe a Lyon, an Ape betweene Man and
beast, whose feete or first footing, were as
the feete of a Beare, that had upon the back
of it foure Wings, like a Fowle or painted
Bird: Two of the Eagle, and two of the
Dragon; signifying his time, Foure hundred
yeares before the comming in of Antichrist,
then came the King of Babylon to
Jerusalem, and besieged it, taking the advantage
of the Night, what Linkes or Torches
brought him thither I reade not, but Moonlight
there was little, though hee were on
his way or Wing, but letted Two hundred
yeares before.

Bearing also foure heads, foure standing
up for it, shewing the devision of the Empire
into so many parts, being then too Cij C3r 12.Pag.
large and great for the government of one
man. This is the Dragon of Egipt; that
Monarchy that began with the Christian
Emperours whose deadly wound (Death
to the Soule) was washed in the Blood, and
healed by the Stripes of the heavenly Samaritan
There is now no healing of the
Bruise, it is putrified the Wound is grievous;
the Leopard cannot change his spots; binde
thy Tyre upon thy head, forbeare to cry:
O Virgin daughter of Egipt, in vaine shalt
thou goe up into Gillead and take Balme,
or use Medicines, thou dost runne in vaine.
And this is hee that sate upon the blacke
Horse the Ethiopian cannot change his
skinne, lesse man then the Minataure; more
Monster then a Centaure, ingendred of black
Cloudes, carried about of every Winde,
to whom is reserved the Blacknesse of
Darknesse for ever: Blacke will take no
other hew; having a payre of Ballances given
into his hand without respect of persons,
to measure to all men, rich and poore,
free and bond, a measure of Wheate for a
penny, and three measures of Barley for a C3v Pag. 13.
penny; Hoe! every one that thirsteth, and
hee that hath no money, Come buy and
eate, give not your money for stones in
stead of Bread, say not Ignorance is better
then Knowledge, Neither hurt the Oyle and
the Wine Touch not the Lords annointed,
and doe his Prophets no harme, that Nourish
you with truth and understanding.

The last Beast the fourth, that is the
Eight, and was Seven heads and is not, and
is of the Seven, and goeth into perdition,
that had great Iron Teeth, that devoured
and brake in peeces, and stamped the residue
with the feete thereof, and was divers
from all the Beasts that were before it; having
a Miter of Tenne hornes, signifying
also, though the Crownes be not here expressed,
so many hundred yeares his Limitted
time, the Tenne dayes of tribulation in
the Apocalips, wherein the Divell shall have
power to cast the faithfull into Prison; (After
the Tribulation imediately of those
dayes; Two shall be in the field, &c.) Nine
of which number are expired, and some
part of the last hundred, but how many are Ciij C4r 14 Pag.
to come; by these hornes precisely cannot
be aymed at without the Art or Science of
Chronologie; This is Judas the Divell, the
King of Babilon and Egypt, the raigne of
Antichrist Pope of Rome, count the Letters
of his name for it is the nomber of his time,
whose name is Death; hated mortally the
King of Rome and Italie: This is hee that
sate upon the Pale Horse the sonne of Perdition,
of all Complexions the darkest, neerest
to corruption, threatning alone, a hart
charged with so much wickednesse and malice
as the Red Horse, all the sanguines in
the Rayne-bow, and the Sword cannot set
out more of Bruitish crueltie; had he winges
to his will, and of time length to the height
and bignesse of his insatiable minde; Nero,
Titus, Domitianus, these beasts of the
Earth, their hearts and policies parraleld
would seeme but a Curre coupled or compared
with this greedy Woolfe. A Bull as
bloudy as the Beare.

Whose land is covered with Locusts and
Darknes; even darknes that may bee felt rising
out of the depth of the bottomlesse pit C4v Pag. 15.
of Sathans malice very grievous; yet had all
the faithfull light in their dwellings that
they might not loose the way; for it was
Commanded these Armies of Scorpions besieging
the holy City having pernitious
stings, both wayes voluptuous and malitious,
The power of the Enemy that they
should not hurt the grasse of the Earth, neither
any greene thing, by any meanes nothing
should hurt them, but only drye
Trees or boughs, bearing no fruite of repentance,
those men that have not the Seale of
God in their gracelesse foreheads, that they
should not kill these wretched blinde miserable
People, but that they should bee tormented
five Moneths, as in those dayes the
most part, most Lamentable in the siege of
Jerusalem by Famine were tormented so long
compassed with a Trench, kept in on every
side, Seeking death, and desiring to dye, &c.

This did the Lord because the Princes of
Egipt, harkened not to milde Moses; but
hardened their harts, and did evill in the
sight of the Lord, after the Abominations
of the Heathen; Therefore saith the Lord, D1r 16 Pag.
I am against thee ô Dragon, which lyest in
the Hart (the middest of the Rivers) which
said my Rivers ate mine owne, I have made
it for my selfe; I will put hookes in thy
Clawes, and leave the Throne into the Wildernesse,
where there is no water; and all
the Inhabitants shall know that I am the
Lord, because they have beene a staffe of
Reede to the house of Israel, when they
tooke hold of thee by the hand, thou didst
breake and Rent all their shoulder, and
when they leaned on thee, thou brakest, and
made all their loynes to be at a stand, with
the Burthens of Bricke and Rubbish thy
Officers did lay upon them.

Thou hast given them Stubble for Straw
vapor of smoake for Victuall; thou hast
made their lives bitter unto them; Therefore
the Lord is against thee whose healed
Wound is festred, turned wilde againe, become
Antichristian and incureable, thou
that haddest the Ballances in thine owne
hand; Thou that art like a Leopard or a
young Lyon of the Nations, as a Dragon;
or a Whale in the Seas with thy Diadem of D1v Pag. 17
of Ten hornes, crowned with Ten Crowns,
so many Antichristian hundred yeares, Nine
of which accompt are cast, past, and expired.

Troubling the waters with thy feete and
fowlest their Rivers; the whole Sea of Rome,
the third part of the maine Sea is become
Blood Behold the Lord is against thee and
against thy Rivers, which are turned into
Wormwood (woe due O Rome) and Hemlocke;
Even the Third part of the waters,
the streames of Justice and Mercy are become
poyson and Bitternesse; I hate and despise

Considered; foure came up out of the
North part of his head, the French Emperours;
of the South-side sixe Spanish; before
whom, there were Three of the first, their
Race pluckt up by the Rootes; amongst
these came up an other little Horne about
the midst of the time: in this Horne were
eyes, like the eyes of a man, in workmanship
striving to set Nature a patterne; curious
in all Arts, and doing honour to vertue,
but wanting the gift of grace, opened a
fearefull Mouth; the King of the East, whose
looke is more stout then the highest of his
fellow Hornes.

Hitherto is the end of the matter of these

favour to the young, casting downe

he shall be broken without hand.

Now in those dayes, when the Goate was
come close unto the Ramme and had cast
him downe and stamped upon him; The
Prophet that beheld as by a perspective
these remote things, heard also one Saint
speaking, and an other Saint said unto that
certaine Saint that spoke, how long is the
time from this Vision to the end of the
world, that the holy Citie of God, and his
chosen People be no longer trodden under

shall the Sanctuarie bee cleansed, and the

The man Gabriel which was caused
to flie swiftly, touched him and said (alluding
to the former matter of his studie and
meditations, as of troublous, appetites, and
Cogitations somtimes Dreames are derived)
O Daniel I am come unto thee againe to

make reconciliation for sinne, but a time

In the third yeare of Cyrus King of
Persia, a thing was revealed to Daniel
(whose name was called Belteshazzer)
and the thing was true but the time H H2r 50.Pag.
appointed was long. These are the things
not only come to passe, in this latter age of
the world, but at this time and in this day;
signified by the Son of God to the Prophet.

Prince of Persia.—I Can Pope Friers


I can Pope Friars. Man hold up my Traine?


Kings I Depose, and all their Race, to Raigne.


And Popes to Friers I can turne againe.

The Prince of the Kingdome of Persia,
(that Lord by whom the Lord of Lords
was withstood,) is Sathan the Divell, Michael
one of the first Princes that came
then to helpe him; This is James King
of Great Britaine, and the man who is raised
on high: The one and Twenty dayes the
Lord making no forfeiture, are so many
Hundred yeares, beginning at the Vision,
and ending this present, 16001600. And so long
the words of this Vision have been closed &
sealed up; Even till now the time of the end.

This most Blessed person the Saviour of
the world, remained with the Kings of
Persia, the Roman Emperors (signified so unto H2v Pag. 51.
Daniel being the present Monarchy)
till there arose up a new King in Egipt which
knew not Joseph, and said unto his People;
Behold, the People of the Children of
Israell are more, and mightier then wee;
Therfore set over thē Taskmasters to afflict
them with Burthens, but the more they did
afflict them, the more they multiplied and
grew. These Kings placed in the highest
Thrones, to walke in his Statutes to execute
his Judgements, but because they gave more
Eare, and harkened rather to false Prophets
then to Elias and Moses, for severitie
and meeknesse; Representing the Law
and the Gospell, suffering their Bodies to lye
dead in the streets in an unknowne Tongue,
even hee the Lord departed from them; and
with the sword of his Mouth will fight
with their Prince Sathan, renewing alwayes
his old quarrell against the Church of God.

And here these Kings forsaken of Jesus
, for one secret friend which is the
Divell, they have two open Enemies, the
Turke and the Pope, making their Crownes
his footstoole, this did not Cæsar, by Hij H3r 52.Pag.
these Three the Empire being devided
what can remaine but the bare Image; or
the Image of the Picture of him, whose
deadly wound was healed: Bearing at this
day, as Thunder goes before Lightning, for
their fatall device, the sad Fowle blazoned
with the ominous Colours of the blacke
Horse for feare, but halfe displaying her
wings, in stead of her beake shee casts her
heads, the Eagle hath Mued her Feathers;
Though thou exalt thy selfe as the Eagle
and though thou set thy neast amongst the
Starres, thence will I bring thee downe saith
the Lord.

These things hitherto mentioned concerning
the last Vision is the preamble for this
that followeth, for here the Sonne of God
whose eyes were like a flame of fire; and his
feet like fine brasse saith he will shew unto
the man greatly beloved, that which is noted
in the Scripture of truth, which is the
Revelation, the sayings of which are faithfull
and true, that there is none, or but one,
that holdeth with him in these things,
which is the true Interpretation of the Scripture, H3v Pag. 53.
but Michael our Prince of Great
Britaine and Ireland
, that fights and contends
with the Enemies of the Lord, about his
Body, disputing with them, have transubstantiated
& changed the truth of God into
a lye worshipping and serving the Creature
more then the Creator, for which cause God
gave them up, &c.

Now followeth that that is noted in the
Scripture of that Prince. After the Temple
of God was opened in Heaven, wherein
was seene the Arke of his Testament, overlaid
round about with gold, wherein was
the golden Pot that had Manna, and Arons
Rodde that budded, and the Tables
of the Covenant And over it the Cherubins
of glory, covering the Mercy-Seate,
and Lightnings and voyces, and Thunders,
&c. This is the Millitant Church that
brought foorth the Man-childe, the word
of God, caught up unto God, and to his
Throne, after which the Woman fled into
the Wildernesse where shee was fed A thousand
two hundred and threescore dayes,
which are so many yeares.

Hiij H4r 54 Pag.

The first accompt beginneth from the
destruction of Jerusalem, when the abomination
of desolation, did stand in the Holy
place, the yeares being the same spoken in
the last Vision of the Prophet Daniel,
though thirty yeares be taken away because
the Court without the Temple was left out,
given unto the Gentiles, for the Raigne of
the first Christian Emperour.

These yeares doe reach to the dayes of
those blessed Men, when the light of the
Gospell did first begin to shine, after the
great Mist, lasting a Thousand two hundred
and ninetie yeares, dayes of darknesse and
gloominesse of Cloudes, and thicke Mists,
when the third part of the Sunne was smitten
and the third part of the Moone, and
the third part of the Starres, which are innumerable;
After these dayes were past,
there was warre in Heaven, Michael
and his Angells, fought against the Dragon,
and the Dragon fought, and his Angells the
Jesuites and prevailed not, neither was their
place found any more in Heaven.

Heaven is here taken in this place for the H4v Pag. 55.
Church of God, the fray is fought by seconds,
by Michael is meant King
James; The Dragon needs little exposition,
It is the Pope, for Michael overcame
by the blood of the Lambe, and by the
testimony of so many Bishops, and other
faithfull, crowned with the Glory of Martyrdome;
Therefore rejoyce yee Church of
God, yee Congregations of the faithfull,
and ye Professors that dwell amongst them,
and woe to the Earth and to the Sea the
Congregation of the Sinagogue the Sea of
Rome, Sathans seate, where Sathan dwelleth,
for the Pope, the Dragon, the Divell is amongst
you, having great wrath, because he
knoweth he hath but a short time, two woes
are past, and behold the third woe commeth

Blessed are the Dead that dye in the Lord,
for they rest from their labours, and their
works follow them, and this is the truth noted
in the Scripture of Truth, of Michael,
And God make the name and Throne, of
the King of his Sonne, better, and greater then

I1r 56 Pag.

Though I owe no defence for the name of
an Angell given to a Mortall man (in this
Prophesie) yet to satisfie as well the Envious
as the Ignorant, they shall finde the Sonne
of God sometimes called by the name of the
first Adam, David who shall feede his
Flocke like a Shepheard, and gather his
Lambes with his arme, and carry them in
his bosome, stiled a man after Gods owne
Hart; and in another place from his owne
Mouth, holding it no derogation to his Divine
Nature, to apply to himselfe by Parables
the properties of an austere Master, a
Cruell usurer, or the uniust Judge, May by
the same Authoritie give the name of Michael,
or like unto God in some respects
unto this Prince who fought the battell of
the Lord, more like an Angell then a Mortall
Man; as to the other the name of Dragon,
because he spake as a Dragon.

As this young Dragon hath acted his
part, his Syer or Damme the old Dragon, his
markes may not be forgotten, whose Hornes
have been formerly mentioned in a Miter
and Diadem, his seaven Heads are so many Rulers, I1v Pag. 57
Rulers, as it were Husbands or severall sorts
of Magistracy, governing that Commonwealth,
and the seaven Crownes are seaven
Hundreth yeares, beeing the time from
Romes foundation to the first Emperour.

Darius the Med — I Dreamed Thus.

Besides this Prince of victorious and
blessed memory, who came to helpe
the King of Kings, that sate upon the
white Horse whose name is the word of
God, to fight the Battell in Heaven against
the Prince of the Kingdome of Persia, here is
an other of like happy memory, that hath
the Honour to have his name Recorded in
this holy antient Prophecie, Constantine
the Great, named, Darius the Mede,
raigning thirtie yeares. In the first times of
which renowmed Monarchy the Lord I I2r 58.Pag.
stood to confirme and strengthen him. After
whose time three Kings stood up together
in Persia, dividing the Empirewhich
breach, made way for the fourth, the fourth
Beast, corrupted with Riches and libertie;
Farre richer then they all, By whose strength
through his riches, Christian Princes were
stirred up against Mahomet, growing
not a little by their ruines.

And a mighty King shall stand up, the
great King of Tyre, the absolute Monarch
thereof, and all the dependences Northward,
that shall rule with great dominion,
and doe according to his owne will, and
when hee shall stand up the fundamentall
Lawes of his Kingdome shall bee broken
and infringed; And the Kingdome shall be
divided towards the foure windes of Heaven,
and not to his posterity, nor according
to his Dominion which hee ruled, for this
Kingdome shall be pluckt up, even for others,
besides those that were planted therein;
his naturall subjects by a dispensation
being freed from their oath of obedience.
I2v Pag. 59. “Caroli Magni Christianissimi Romanorum Imperatoris

Corpus hoc conditum est sepulchro.”

After this the King of the South was
strong, and he was strong above the King
of the North, and he had dominion, and
his Dominion is a great dominion.

These two Kings, the King of the North,
and the King of the South parting the ten
Hornes the Princes of Tyre and Ethiopia;
In the end of yeares they shall joyne themselves
together, for the Kings Daughter of
the South shall come to the King of the
North to make an agreement, but shee shall
not retaine the power of the Arme, neither
shall he stand nor his Arme, or they shall be
Childlesse and she shall be given up, And
they that brought her sent away destitute of
a Father, and for saken of her Brother.

But out of a branch of her rootes, which
are her Father and her Mother, signifying
their Incestuous Mariages One shall stand
up in his Estate very hardy, and shall come
with an Armie, and shall enter into the Iij I3r 60.Pag.
fortresse of the King of the North; or the
King of Tyre, and deale against them and
prevaile; And shall carry Captives into Egipt,
their Gods and their Prniinces, and with
their Pretious Vessells of Silver and Gold,
and hee shall continue more yeares then the
King of the North in the Monarchy; So
the King of the South, or the King of Ethiopia
shall returne into his owne Land, the
Land of Dust and Ashes, where his worst
Enemies doe not envie his quiet possession:
But his Sonnes who succeeded each other
in the Monarchy, shall be stirred up against
the King of the North, and shall assemble a
great multitude of Forces, and one of them
shall certainly come and overflow with a
floud of Fury, and shall passe through, and
prevaile against them of the Holy Covenant;
But after that hee shall returne and be
stirred up, even to his Fortresse or best Fenced
place by them.

And the King of the South, or one of
these Brothers shall be provoked with Choller,
and shall come forth and fight with the
King of the North, who shall set forth a I3v Pag. 61.
great multitude, but the multitude shall bee
given into the hands of his Enemies, and
himselfe shall be his Prisoner carried a Captive
into Ethiopia.

And when the King of the South, or this
Persian King hath taken away the multitude,
his heart shall be lifted up against God; and
he shall cast downe many of his servants
Tenne Thousands; but neither hee nor
those that come after shall bee strengthened

(For at the end of Yeares, which are now
expired, there shall certainely come a King
of the North, and hee shall set forth a multitude
greater then the former, a great Army
and with much riches, and hee shall doe
according to his owne will, &c.)

And in those former dayes there shall
many stand up against the King of the
South; also the Robbers of the Christians,
these Extortioners shall exalt themselves, to
establish the Vision of the Prophets, and the
Figures of the Law, which Prophecied untill
John; for the first things that are but
shadowes, are now vanished away, to Iiij I4r 62 Pag.
establish the second, but they shall fall, So
the King of the North shall come and cast
up a Mount and take the most fenced Cities;
and the Armes of the South shall not
withstand, neither his chosen People, neither
shall there bee any strength to withstand,
But hee that commeth against him,
shall doe according to his owne will, and
none shall stand before him; and hee shall
stand in the glorious Land which by him
shall be consumed; Hee shall also set his face
to enter with the strength of his whole
Kingdome, and upright ones with him;
thus shall hee doe.

And hee shall give him the Daughter of
Women, or a Queene by decent, whose
Royall blood was corrupted, and stayned
by the usurping authority of a Tyranous
Husband, but she shall not stand on his side,
neither before him, for hee dying shee was
brought home, and shortly after Married
to another,.

After which agreement dissolved, and the
League broken, his Successsor shall turne his
face unto the Brittish Iles, and shall take I4v Pag. 63
many Prisoners, but a Prince for his owne
behalfe, rather then the honour of God of a
happy daring shall cause the reproach offered
to cease without his owne reproach, hee
caused the shame to turne upon him that
opposeth and exalteth himselfe above all
that is called God. The Lord sometimes providing
the remedy before the sore, as carefull
Physitians have Drugs in store for all
diseases, preparing the disobedience of Vasthi,
and the unlawfull divorce for the
preservation of the Jewes, to hang proud
Hammon and all his wicked Sonnes, so this
Prince throwing under foote his Cappe of
Maintenance (whose visage was unmask’d,
by a Munke not long before) those Babel
Monasteries, unmeete Cages for such
Craignes, Ostriges, and chanting Owles digesting
not only all the thorney-Choaking
Heresie of false Prophets, but the rusty Purgatory
fictions of Heathen Poets The doings
of these uncleane and hatefull birds,
Though as the eating of doung I loathe

and Lord himselfe vouchsafed to cast his K1r 64 Pag.
Eye towards those secret privie places, bidding
us take heed of their Deserts, I may not
stop my Nose or Mouth for nicenesse, but
rather thinke it my part to empty such houses
of office, if weakenesse did not prevent
and hinder my willingnesse.

Yet with mine owne hand according to
my might (God willing) I will throw one
stone at this Thracian Witch, the wicked Prophet
If I cannot breake his head, I will
breake his Harpe if I can, before hee passe
headlong downe to Hell the streame Neither

native Soile and Sex may challenge some favour)
how they shall walke then, Inseparably
hand in hand togither; And as certaine
of their owne Poets mention, her untimely
Death, stung by the false Scorpion, that
lurk’d so close in the grasse, of his gamesome

This Beast (or rather Divell) for so hee
seemes by his description, by the stamping
of his Oxe feete. Long teeth of Iron, nayles
of Brasse, and ten Hornes or at least some
horrible Monster in his likenesse, takes upon him Pag. 65 K1v

of his lying Father his Kingdome long
since, had beene divided and broken in pieces.
Bee it never so unlawfull, like the Law
of the Medes and Persians, the Decree may

Thus out of the sentences of the holy Scripture,
this Spider sucks somtimes his poyson,
saying in his Hart, All the Kingdoms of the
“Earth are mine, My Father the Divell hath
given them unto me, and rather of my Estate

where People beleeve some Soules

I make the Creator, sacrifice and sell their
Saviour, which puts me in minde of Judas
my Brother, whose hanging I could heartily
lament, had hee not like a passionate
foole, so ill playd his last part.

Admit of his weaknesse he did repent, is
a wise man the Trumpet of his owne
shame? to say he had Err’d to be his owne
accuser, what did he gaine by this; some
say forsooth, This Confession of friends
and foes, might be, to leave the subtill Elders,
and their generation the Jewes, without
excuse, though wee eate both of one

his tragicall speech, it was timorous, had
it beene by boasting, scoffing, or to advance
his service, as it proved earnest, more
might bee said in his defence. I doe the
same my selfe: but let it passe, my plot was
no pen to blot his name, and had it prevailed, K2v Pag. 67
the fire is witnesse, his frailtie had
never flowne so farre.

When I call to minde my predecessors,
no small puffe can blow my pride downe,
shall I degenerate, or not follow their
steps, Judas the Apostle, and Julianus
the Emperour, no Ring-leaders of
that Nazaren poore Sect that leave the

Scripture promises made to the Fathers
had I beene in their dayes, though they
were couragious, both faithlesse, and false
enough, I can lift my heele as high as
theirs, I had gone before them in their

Yet since it was not remorce of Conscience,
but the ungratefull answer of the

this cast the Man away, my Pardon as beneficiall
to him as to others, shall cost h im

If some will say this stone is cast too far,
I say but a Dreame of like, or lesse horror,
would have started, or as throughly awakened
themselves to behold so great a Tyrant,
a Prince so gratious & good, his Kingdome
with so much pride, and spitefully invaded;
All his naturall Subjects become disobedient
Rebells, except a Remnant of some few,
forsaking their lives, that lov’d not their
lives to the Second Death, suffering for their
loyalty & love unexpressable, fiery exquisite
bloody torments, his Cittizens amongst

out all at once. Away with this Man,
saying, we will not have this Man to raigne

His God head and death being Incompatible,

Therefore thus saith the Lord unto Tyrus,
O thou that art Scituate at the entry of the

daily Sacrifice, or the Lords Supper shall be
taken away to place the Divells Idoll, the
Supper of the Lord, instituted in remembrance
of our Redemption; as the Passeover
was a Commemoration that the Lord
passed over the houses of the Children of
Israel in Egipt, when hee smote the Egiptians
and delivered them. David a man after

people are told they drinke of God our Lord
Jesus Christ his heart-blood
themselves more thirsty after it, then the
greedy Jewes, these blood-suckers will have
it before his side be pierced.

And such as doe wickedly against the Covenant,
to breake the Commandements of
God, the vow, vowed in their Baptisme, by
which they forsake the Divell; with all the
Covetous and Carnall desires of the flesh;
these uncleane vwilde persons shall be corrupted
by flatteries, and easily drawne from the
truth, to beleeve a lye, that they may bee
damned, that hath pleasure in unrighteousnesse,
but the People that know God and
feare him, shall be strong, he shall cover their
heads in the day of Battaile, and they shall
doe exploits, yet they that understand among
the People, and their Teachers that
instruct them; these shall fall by the sword,
and by flame and imprisonment, and by
spoyle of their goods many dayes; yet feare
none of these things, for hee that neither
slumbers nor sleepes, will arise and take his L4v Pag. 79
owne quarrell into his hand, and you shall
be holpen with a little helpe; Therfore trust
not in multitude of Forces, neither them
that will cleave to you with flatteries, for
they will worke deceitfully, as they have
done in former times, nor expect a finall end
of these persecutions, Sathan will sift, the
tayle corne is his owne. If they call the Master
of the house Belzebub, what respect
can yee looke for that are of the houshold.
And the King shall do according to his will,
and hee shall exalt himselfe and magnifie
himselfe above every God, and shall speake
marvelous things against the God of Gods,
great words against the most High, and shall
weare out the Saints of the Most high, and
thinke to change times and Lawes, and shall
prosper till the indignation bee accomplished,
for that, that is determined shall bee
done, Neither shall he regard the God of his
Fathers, nor desire of Women, neither shall

In his estate hee shall honour the God of M1r 80 Pag.
Forces and Battell, being terrible to the servants
of God and his Enemies; a God that
his fore-fathers knew not; or an Altar shall
he honour with Gold and Silver, and with
Pretious stones, and pleasant things; thus
shall hee doe in the most strong holds with
this God, a stranger for many yeares to the
Apostles and their followers, whom he shall
acknowledge and increase with glory; and
hee shall cause in stead of Shepheards, Dogs
and Wolves, in sheep-skins to rule over many,
as Lords over Gods heritage, and they
shall not onely devide the Land for filthy
lucre, but make Merchandizes of mens Consciences.
But if God spared not the Angels,
what shall become of these cursed Children,
that have not onely lost the Flocke, but gone
astray and runne away themselves, following
the way of Balam the Son of Bozer,
who loved the wages of unrighteousnesse,
having eyes full of Adultery; even when
they speake their great swelling words of
Vanitie and Absolution; at that time they
allure to the Lusts of the Flesh, and much
Wantonnesse, leading simple women into Capti- Pag. 81 M1v
Captivitie, promising libertie, that are themselves
the servants of Corruption, wallowing
in the Myre like filthy Swine to cleanse
themselves by wresting the Scriptures to
their owne destruction, licking up againe
the unsavorie meate themselves could ill disgest
not long agoe, and running downe
headlong into the deepe Lake of Fyre and
Brimstone whose latter end is worse then
their beginning; it had beene better for
these men to have continued Heathens as
they were at first in the pollutions of the
world, then after they have knowne the
way of righteousnesse, to turne from it, crucifying
the Sonne of God afresh, and putting
him to open shame.

And at the time of the End shall the King
of the South push at him with all his Spanish
Pikes and the King of the North shall
come against him like a whirlewinde, with
Chariots and with Horsemen, and with many
Ships, The Lord of Hosts send them Victorie;
and he shall enter into the Countries,
and shall overflow and passe over; hee shall
enter also into the glorious Land Domina M M2r 82. Pag.
, and many Countries shall be overthrowne;
but these shall escape out of his
hand, even Edom and Moab, and the chiefe of
the Children of Ammon his Confederates,
he shall stretch forth his hand also upon the
Countries, and the Land of Egipt shall not
escape; But hee shall have powers over the
Treasures of Gold and of Silver, and over all
the Precious things of Egipt, and the Libians
and the Ethiopians shall bee at his steps. But
tidings out of the East and out of the North
shall trouble him, therfore he shall goe forth
with a great furie to destroy and utterly to
make away many; And hee shall plant the
Tabernacles of his Cedars Pallace betweene
the Seas in the glorious holy Mountaine;
yet he shall come to his end, and none shall
helpe him.

Therefore take up a lamentation for the
King of Tyrus, whose Cedars are for the
building of both Houses; and say thou hast
beene in Eden the Garden of God; every
pretious Stone to garnish the foundation
was thy Covering, the Ruby, the Topaz,
and the Diamond, the Berill, the Onix, the M2v Pag. 83
Jasper and the Saphire these things were
prepared for thee. Thou art annointed the
Cherube that Covereth, thou wast upon the
holy Mountaine of God, and thou hast
walked up and downe in the middest of the
Stones of Fyre: but because thou hast lifted
up thy heart, and said; I am God, I have
subdued three Kings. I sit in the middest of
the Seas, and hast defiled thy sacred Houses,
I will bring thee to Ashes, and none shall
help thee. As I live, saith the Lord, I will even
doe according to thine anger, and according
to thine Envie, which thou hast used out of
thy hatred against them, and I will make my
selfe knowne amongst them, when I have
judged thee, and thou shalt know that I am
the Lord, and that I have heard all thy Blasphemy,
which thou hast spoken against the
Mountaine of Israell, Saying, they are layd
desolate by Massacre, they are given us to
consume by the sword; thus with thy mouth
thou hast Boasted against Mee, therefore
shortly when the whole Land of Israell rejoyceth,
I will make thee desolate, then thou
shalt know that I the Lord doe Sanctifie Mij M3r 84. Pag.
Israell, when my Sanctuary shall bee in the
middest of them for ever.

Therefore, ô King of the North, arise
from thy Throne, lay thy Royall Robe aside,
and cause a Decree through Tyrus to be
published; saying, Let them turne every one
from his evill way, and from the violence or
unnaturall; shedding of Blood, that is in their
hands, &c. Who can tell if God will turne
and repent, and turne away from his fierce
anger, that wee goe not into Perdition.

Al Truths Cesar

Behold the Lord is at the Dore as a man
come from a farre journey; All that sleepe
in the Dust of the Earth, shall heare his
voyce and awake, and come forth, those that
have done good to the Resurrection of life;
These have their part in the first Resurrection,
and those that have done evill unto the
Resurrection of Damnation. Then the Angell
came downe from Heaven, having taken
from the false Prophet the Key of the Miij M4r Pag. 86.
Bottomlesse pit having in his hand a great
Chaine, hee shall next lay hold on the Dragon
the Devill; and hee shall bee bound a
Thousand yeares, or one day, which is all
one with the Lord; he shall shut him up, and
set a Seale upon him, for the wrath of the
Lord that day, shall bee a sufficient marke
that the Nations be deceived no more.

This Thousand yeares is the great day of
the Lord, to poure out his wrath and just indignation
upon his Enemies; But the wise
Virgins with Palmes in their handsthat
have not beene deceived by the subtilty or
force of flatterers, shall shine in their Robes,
as the brightnesse of the Firmament; Kings
Daughters attended by honourable Matrons,
as Starres for ever and ever, prepared
for the Bridegroomes Marriage, whose Wife
the Bride and Queene, hath made her selfe
ready clothed in fine Linnen cleane and
white, arrayed in a Garment of Needleworke
wrought with Gold of Ophier the
Daughter of Tyre shall bee there with a Gift;
she shall be brought to the King, with gladnesse

hatest wickednesse; therefore God thy God
annoynt thee with gladnesse above thy fellowes.

After this Thousand yeares the great Day
of the solemnitie finished, the Bride being
safe in her closset and Marriage chamber,
Sathan the olde Serpent shall be loosed a little
season as Prisoners are set at libertie when
they goe to the place of Execution to receive
his finall sentence of everlasting Damnation;
yet hoping in his vaine imagination and
hart that cannot repent to deceive the Nations
that are at rest, to take a prey, to goe up
to the Citie that is in safetie that needs no
Wall, neither the light of the Sunne or the
Moone, &c.

Unto whom the just Judge frõfrom his Throne
of Glory with a terrible looke, for furie, jealousie
shall come up into his face, shall say
unto him; Art thou he whom I have spoken
of in olde time by my servants the Prophets
to give the Nations warning of thee, how
thou diddest not onely like a foole deceive N1r Pag. 88.
thy selfe, when thou saidst, I will ascend up
and be like the most highest, but like a cursed
creature didst deceive their innocent Parents,
be prepared therefore, and prepare thy
selfe and all thy Company, and see whether
thou canst be a guard unto them; or what
defence they can make for themselves who
could not be ignorant, and ought not to be
carelesse, because by mine owne Mouth I
gave them warning, that after many dayes
thou shouldst be visited and brought a Prisoner
into the Land which is now brought
backe from the Sword and cleansed, though
it lay waste a time, and the Villages thereof
unwalled. For these I commanded them
straightly to watch both concerning the
things I fore-told them should come to
passe; as also of this houre, left like a Theefe
or as the Flood came upon their fore-fathers
the Ungodly, they should be surprised unawares,
because I told you of these things
before depart, I know yee not, nor that Captaine
your false Prophet, are yee those that
eate my flesh and drinke my blood, whence

hearts, deafe Adders, and blinde People with

Wee have eaten and Drunke in thy presence,
all the world was taxed by the Prince
of our Nation and thou hast taught in our
streets; Their iniquitie is the greater, thrust
them out. Lord, Lord, come out Dogs and
Swine, Apes and Satiers hence here all Lyers,
Scoffers at the truth, uncleane; persons,
for here shall enter in no wise any thing that
defileth, neither whatsoever worketh Abomination,
or maketh a Lye, but they which
are written in the Lambes Booke of Life.

But thou ô Daniel, shut up the words
and seale up this Booke to the time of the
end; Now that the whole world might take
notice, and discerne when this Sealed Prophesie
shall be opened, the time is more then
once repeated, even at the time of the end,
when the King of the South shall push at
the King of the North, and the King of the
North shall come against him like a Whirlewinde,
for till then, though many shall run N N2r 90. Pag.

an other Hemisphere, Sayling by

Magnificent Libraries with printed
Bookes, By which two Arts, chiefly the Gospell
shall bee published to all Nations; yet
the Character of this Booke shall not bee
read, till the time of the end which time is
easie to be knowne, even without the Notice
of the yeares closed up in this Booke;
where Eagles are gathered together, you
suppose some Carcasse to be there: The Figtree,
when her Branch is yet tender, and putteth
forth her leaves, ye know that Summer
is neere Jerusalem when it was compassed
with Armies, the Desolation was nigh. In
like manner, when yee see these things come
to passe fore-told you, know the end is nie,
even at the dore; But of the day and houre
knoweth no man, no not the Angells that
are in Heaven; neither the Sonne but the
Father; the accompt in this Booke of note,
being by Centuries of yeares.

Then I Daniel looked, and behold N2v Pag. 91
there stood other Two; the two Olive Trees
the Tree of Life, either of them bearing
Twelve manner of Fruites, the Two Witnesses
into whom, after Three dayes and a
halfe, the Spirit of Life from God entred;
and they stood upon their feet. The one on
this side of the banke of the River; and the
other on that side of the bank of the River;
The foũdationsfoundations of the wall of the City, Jesus;
himself being the chiefe corner stone.

And one said to the man clothed in Linnen,
that was upon the waters of the Rivers,
that cryed with a loude voyce, as when a Lyon
Roareth; Lord wilt thou at this time restore
againe the Kingdome of Israell, how
long shall it be to the end of these wonders,
or tell us when these things shall bee, and
what shall bee the signe of thy comming,
and of the end of the world.

And he held up his right hand and his left
hand to Heaven, shewing his Resurrection
and Ascention, and sware by him that Liveth
for ever and ever, Heaven and Earth
shall passe away, but my Word shall not
passe, neither this froward generation; this Nij N3r 92. Pag.
Nation till all these things bee done spoken
of by my Mouth and the Prophets; there
be some standing here, which shall not taste
of Death till they see the Sonne of Man
comming in his Kingdome, his servants will
fight for him. So shall even all my words be

It is not for you to know the times and
seasons which the Father hath put in his
owne power; But goe thou thy way and
rest, and stand in the Lot. Seale up those
things which the Seven thunders uttered,
and write them not, it shall be for a time
and times and halfe, then all these things
shall be finished, as a Henne gathereth her
Chickens, or as a scattered Army in that day
the Holy People shall be gathered together,
in the meane time many shall bee purified
and made white by the fiery Tryall; The
wicked shall doe wickedly, and shall not understand,
but the wise, it is given unto them
to understand the misteries of the Kingdome
of Heaven.

And from the time that the daily Sacrifice
shall bee taken away, or the yearely N3v Pag. 93
Passeover by the destruction of Jerusalem, to
place the Abomination that maketh desolate;
there shall be a Thousand Two hundred
and Ninetie dayes; Heere is the Measure
of the Temple, and the Altar and them
that worship therein; And here is also the
breach of the first Commandements, spoken
of by our Lord; the abomination that
maketh desolate not only the Sanctuary but
the Citie; the first ripe Apples that hang so
high against the Sunne; The Divell thought
if hee could reach these, the rest were his
owne; therefore to plucke them downe in
the primitive times, he began to reare his
Ladder in the holy Places to set up his plurality,
adding the Images of living Mortall
men to be worshipped with Divine honour,
and vaine supplications, as if themselves were
present, making no doubt, having no egresse
and regresse in time to bring his owne amongst
them into the nomber, in which expectation
hee sayled not much; for who is
this here, that sits in the Temple of God, as
if there were Two Gods, besides his Pigmalion-like
Image the parts of which Niij N4r Pag. 94.
are seldome colde, if there bee heate in the
Kisses of such holy People.

The swiftnesse of time is such, I cannot
gather all the Spices and dropping Myrrhe
of this Tree, I can fixe no longer speaking
what manner God will sit alone in his holy
Temple, abhorring not only the people but
the place where a Coleague is joyned with
him in office; therefore of the next branch.

Suppose a man after his Marriage to a
young Virgin, should say, my experience is
more then yours, I cannot alwayes walke
hand in hand with you, neither may I
keepe you in a Cloister that will not be for
your health or my profit, neither must you
forget your Covenant to bee subject to my
desires not tending to the harme of either of
us; I love you as mine owne Body, if I
should not love you, I should not love my
selfe, you are tender and faire without blemish
or blot, so I would have your minde
also without spot or wrinckle like your face,
many strangers will strive to bee your Servants;
not all for your beautie but some for
malice and envie to me: Though your intent N4v Pag. 95
be good in all things, yet because I am
very jealous of mine honor, entertaine none
in that manner; though they be silent for a
time, and conceale themselves, in the end
they will draw your affection from me; Besides,
much resort though shee be never so
chaste, is dalliance the marke of a knowne
Harlot, which sort of women I would have
you differ from, and no marke I know more
fit to put a difference betweene you then
this; For much entertainment will not
only waste our substance, better imployed
upon more necessary occasions, but consume
time in unprofitable idlenesse.

Is there no consequent, yes doubtlesse, I
am the Lord thy God thou shalt have no other
Gods but me; thou shalt not make Images
of any likenesse to bowe or humble
thy selfe before them; for of my honor I am
a jealous God, you are mine, I bought you
to enjoy the libertie of my service; I brought
yee out of the house of bondage, which no
other God could doe; thou shalt love the
Lord thy God, and keepe his charge and his

When yee goe forth to shew the way of
truth to other Nations, this spirituall dalliance,
which in the end turnes to whoredome,
beware of it for it shall bee a marke
betweene them that hate mee and you that
keepe my Comandements; and though I
will not at any time bee farre from you, yet
you shall fall by Captivitie and persecution
to spread my name, or for the Triall of your
Faith, when you see their Idolatrie pull
downe their high Places, Preach against
them; say, Little Children, ignorant people
that understand not the slights of Sathan;
Beware of Idols, tender natures encounter
strongest motions; Top-sayles are first assaulted
No man so well knowes his owne
frailtie, as the Lord your God knowes how
prone Devotion is to Superstition.

Also when yee goe in and out amongst the
Heathen folke, or if the Lord give them into
your hands, as the Amalikites were given
into the hand of the Children of Israell, when
the Prophet said; what meaneth this bleating
in mine eares; Sauls excuse shall not
availe you; to say, we set them up for Saints beforeknew Pag. 97 O1v
before the Lord, the Images of Jupiter
for Jesus Christ; the Statue of Hercules for
Christopher; Venus and the little Lad
for the blessed Virgin, as holy as Scarcrowes
in a Garden of Cowcumbers

You that cannot make one haire white or
blacke, will yee goe a Whoring after your
owne inventions, to humble your selves before
Pageants, Pictures, Images with eyes
that see not, Eares without hearing, &c. More
senslesse then a Beast; yet these rare Mamets
the light of the Sunne is too darke for them
without Candles; when the Members of
Christ goe naked, these must bee cloathed,
not for warmnesse but for wantonnesse; and
these are the Babyes made and dressed by
the Divell, and decked to please his Children,
abhorred, and abominable in the sight
of the Lord.

Lastly, with these lines the Temple of
God is Measured, and them that worship
therein. Measuring is for Numbering; place
is put for time, and sometimes space a thousand
sixe hundred furlongs Signifying the
persecution of the Church so many yeares, O O2r 98. Pag.
reward her even as she rewarded you. To rise
therefore and Measure the time, begin from
the taking away of the daily Sacrifice or the
Destruction of Jerusalem, and count a thousand
two hundred and threescore yeares,
wherein for the absence of the Church in
the Wildernesse, the two Witnesses did Prophesie
clothed in Sackcloth, so many yeares
of Mists and darknesse, to these must be added
some dayes of faire weather, a hundred
forty and foure thousand amounting to
foure hundred yeares and odde, having their
fathers name written in their foreheads,
these sing as it were a new song; These are
Virgins not (defiled with women) Chaste
conversation, not commanding laciviousnesse,
by forbidding Marriage, waxing worse
and worse.

The Temple was not built in a day, it is
three Stories; the foure hundred yeares are
to be devided into three severall parts, Seventy
yeares and odde, untill the destruction
of Jerusalem, when the Apostles finished their
testimony, thirty yeares are restored for the
raigne of Constantine the great, the remaines O2v Pag. 99
remaine for these last times, being
the same eighteene thousand Measures spoken
by Ezekiel the Prophet, the Measure
of the Temple within are not summed up, I
presume not to looke into the account, the
Measure of it round about without, I heard
the number of them cast up, Eighteen thousand
Measures, every Measure sixe Cubits,
according to the Measure of a man. That is,
of the Angell, three hundred yeares & odde;
and the name of the City from that day shal
bee God is there, that said Son of Man, the
place of my Throne, and the place of the
soles of my feet, where I will dwell in the
middest of the Children of Israell for ever,
and my holy Name shall the house of Israell
no more defile, &c.

Blessed is he that waiteth and commeth to
the thousand three hundred and five and
thirty yeares, these are the blessed times of
John Wickliffe & John Hus, both famous
Martyrs, and burning Lights, set up to
shew forth the state and beauty of the truth,
one burnt alive, the other after hee was
dead, being hard to judge in which of these, Oij O3r Pag. 100.
the Devill the Father of lyes, Antichrist his
crucifying Sonne, and the Dragon, expressed
most malice; from which cursed triplicitie,
three Monsters of the bottomlesse Pit,
God deliver us, who will give us a Crowne
of life; Come Lord Jesus, the grace of
our Lord Jeus Christ bee with you all.

Last of all, the whole world is numbred
and those that worke abomination therein,
and the delights thereof, weighed in the balances,
are found lighter then vanitie it selfe.
There is nineteene yeares and a halfe to the
day of Judgement, 1625-07-28July the 28. M.DC.XXV.
Sixe hundred and threescore Moneths are
