The
La:Lady Elea:Eleanor
Her Creed or
Confession.

Verily as We all Beleeve
in God, the sole
Creator of all Things
that were made in the
beginning: So according to His
promise made also; Concerning the
Womans seed, of which the A2 Serpent, A2v 4
Serpent, on forfiture or pain of his
head, forewarn’d to beware: “do beleeve
in our Lord Jesus hee the
very God: alone Redeemer of the
World, born of the Virgin,
which Conceived by the Holy Ghost,
our only Sanctifier.”

Who after he had finished on
the sixt day the worke of Our Redemption,
and
rested the seventh, rose
againe; And was by the space of six
weekes
seen, whose last Commandement
was to wait “for his Fathers
promise, of
the Holy Ghosts comming”
in whom We also beleeve.

Wherfore of beleife not slow: in those A3r 5
those Things written by the Prophets
and Apostles, doe for mine
own part Confeße, how incredible soever
it seems to Others, I farther
beleeve the second Comming of the
holy Ghost, imediately before the
day of Judgement acording to that
spoken by the Prophet Joel, saying:
God saith, “afterward it shall
come to passe, I will powre out
my Spirit upon all flesh”
, “before
the great and terrible Day of the
Lord”
: Namely, on the
Gentiles, their Sonnes and Daughters
likewise
: “And I will shew
Wonders in the Heavens”
(beside
a New
Star, not long since
never) more frequent signes, & “in A3 the A3v 6
the Earth Blood, and Fire, and
pillars of Smoake”
, &c. Witnesse such
warr, throughout the Christian
world.

Of which last dayes, give me
leave to say, in Grace and Giftes of
Learning; how Rich soever
They esteem themselves: The
Gentiles neverthelesse of a Comforter,
more need had Never, how
much soever presume upon their Holineße:
Supposing like the Jewes a
Saviour for them unnecessary, which
held themselves so just: And so because
Christians already cleansed;
likewise no more need to be beholding:
Thus all concluded under unbeleif,
&
fearfull blindnes, unmindfullfull A4r 7
of that Charge, to feare by others
wofull fall, “and not to bee highminded,”
INTERNAL ERROR. Please report to wwp@neu.edu that regMe is unmatched.Rom. II. And so for
farther justifying this point touching
Prophecie for ever not extinguished.
But as the Latter raine no lesse requisit
then the former, though for a
time ceas’d: Shall proceed
on with
the everlasting Gospel, concerning
the case of the Gentiles cut off, in
case of unbeleife
.

As even the two witnesses comming
against them with firie mouths, that
thinke to quench or silence the Spirit
of Prophecie
, well called Spirituall
Sodome and Egypt that Citie. And
he the “Beast as Bruitish, ascended
out of the Bottomlesse pit”
(as it were A4v 8
were) Judas spirit conjured up, or
Herod that Fox, together with the
Nations or Gentiles as outragious
as the Jewes, “because these two Prophets
tormented them”
, whose testimony
publish’d, the Old and New
Testament
those
, INTERNAL ERROR. Please report to wwp@neu.edu that regMe is unmatched.Luke 21. “There
shall be signs”
, &c. who Maugre their
enemies stood upon their feet again: the
Spirit of life entering into them”
.

Intruth as much to say, the Prophet
Daniel stiled “greatly beloved”:
and this favourite Disciple, their sealed
Bookes (reserved for the end) open’d
or to be interpreted, like themselves
lying dead and revived: by
the
Angels, touch or hand. And as
those sent two and two: before the
Lord B1r 9
Lords face, even so the Messengers
of the Resurrection, the two
witnesses sent to prepare the Judge
of quicke and dead”
, his comming
INTERNAL ERROR. Please report to wwp@neu.edu that regMe is unmatched.Revel. II. Whose foes incensed
so against them for the same. As
the little Booke open in the Angels
hand (INTERNAL ERROR. Please report to wwp@neu.edu that regMe is unmatched.Revel. 10) declares.
Commanded to be eaten, verily no
other then the Sacrament of the
Lords returne sworne in his wrath
as it were even times finished
reigne, or “dayes to be shortned”.

And for this so distastfull to the
world; therefore heavie judgements
and Plagues and Warre appointed
the day of Judgements forerunner
as worthy of no other,
when come to passe on earth such B distra- B1v 10
distraction, and the World six
thousand years aged too, as in the
sixt Century of Noahs age the
Flood came upon the Earth, but
so many dayes of the weeke (as
it were,) in the Lords account.

And thus he one of the witnesses
John bidden to arise, and measure
the Gospels Progresse as it were, the
Temple, how long until the rising
from the Dead, from his
dayes bearing date 17001700. yeares
as the halfe of seven gives it plainly,
sealed up in those Propheticall
Characters
, the 42. Moneths given
them to prophecie, or a thousand
two hundred & sixty dayes,
and so “a time & time sandtimes and halfe” agreeablegreea- B2r 11
to the present division,
& thus both agreeing in one, stiled
by the Prophet Daniel, “a time and
times and the deviding of time”
,
whose Commißion to continu so long:
And then he whosoever shall oppose
it Though never so great: as
here he stiled the God of the earth
no lesse, these two as freely to proclaime
open warre so often as they
please, to smite the Earth or Land
with Pestilence and such Judgments,
as those
Vials of wrath directed to
the present Century shew, so much
suffices: and how they were rewarded,
their Sackcloth changed
into a glorious cloud, and their Foes
so much tormented with their testimony,
“how at the same time such an Earthquak
the City falling upon them”
, except a RemnantB2 nant B2v 12
which upon Repentance or peace
made, escaped.

And all these but speaking one thing
in severall Languages (to wit) the Resurrections
loud voice
, and that of the Ascention:
as “ascendite huc” added to those Propheticall
firie tongues of theirs or “fire
proceeding out of their mouths, if any
will harme them”
suffices for the insuing
feast also, when fully come or finished
wherefore with the 24 Elders that great
Councell or States sitting upon their seats
forever with one consent and voice Let
great Brittain likewise say, “Wee give thee
thrice humble thanks O eternal Trenity, which
art, and wast, and art to come
, because thou
hast taken to thee thy great power and
hast reigned.”

And I believe lastly, though a
Mistery none of the lest, like the
grace of God bestowed upon the Gentiles,
held as impossible a point with the B3r 13
the Apostles: That after the last Period
expird, ther is a Release out of Hell,
Redemption for all the Damned,
Although granted that sentence Irevocable,
“Goe yee Cursed, &c.”

And the unpardonable sinne, not in
this world nor that to come so given: And
the fire unextinguished, yet proves their
sufferings not of like nature and condition:
Notwithstanding in danger, (were
God extreame)
of endlesse torment:
Therefore if Salt which preserves be
good, the fire also necessary like th1 letterflawed-reproductionse “better
to enter maim’d into Heaven then otherwise
goe into fire unquenchable
which goes not out”
, to our dayes without
doubt directed (INTERNAL ERROR. Please report to wwp@neu.edu that regMe is unmatched.Marke the 9.) where
so often repeated th1 letterflawed-reproductionse words concluded,
“have peace in your selves”.

And B3v 14

And therefore before that Parable
where mentioned the gulfe or fixed space,
no other then a prefixed space of time.
(INTERNAL ERROR. Please report to wwp@neu.edu that regMe is unmatched.Luke 15.) his Elder Brother expostulating
reproves like unnaturallnes in others,
without compaßion of those undergoing
the second death, in the lost Son instanc’d
the second brother, as those words
saying: “It was meet, &c. For this thy
Brother was dead, and is alive again,
was lost, and is found.”

Approving of that Principle of every
thing in the end, goes to its proper
place from whence it came to returne.
And so much for “a doore in
heaven opened”
; the mouth of Prophesie
againe thundering out Judgements,
(INTERNAL ERROR. Please report to wwp@neu.edu that regMe is unmatched.Revela. 4.) together with
these, the
Bottomlesse pit opened also, hels B4r 15
hels Epitomie & their King over them,
where they not having the Seale of
God in their foreheads (some name given
as it were
) These not killed seeking
death fleeing from them wher so many
months imprisonment shewd: as prisons
never so fild as in those dayes
: Shall not
need to add what yeare of God seald
with, &c. where such innumerable
Hors-men discribed to the life: “Currentium
in bellum”
, beside current Coine
Half-Crown-peices, super capita tanquam
corone, & habebant capillos sicut
capillos mulierum”
: INTERNAL ERROR. Please report to wwp@neu.edu that regMe is unmatched.Revela. 9. viz &c.

And thus having cansel’d Purgatories
numberleße passes and pardons that take
upon them to deliver others, and cannot
out of such utter spirituall Darknesse free them- B4v 16
themselves, deriv’d from hence: “thou shalt
not come forth thence untill paid the
utmost mite”
. And hee without commisseration
of his fellow-servant served with
the like
measure: “delivered
to the Tormentors, till paid all was
due.”

Al ye take to your comfort those armes
display’d, as said to the one, “this day Thou
shalt be with me, &c.”
So inferr another
like day for the Other: And
therefore, as the Lord lives that
shall rayse us from the dust of death so
the Lord lives (let us say) that brings
upus out of the Jawes of Hell backe to
Paradice
, and increase our Faith.

Finis.
