Revelation XI. July 15.

1679

A Lamentation for a sort of people in the Nation, who the Lord saith unto me, are a proud, blind, scornful, lying, oppressing, persecuting, hard-hearted people in England. And the Lord let me see, who they are, and I know them by Name. And the Lord said unto me further, Now out of my favour they are gone they are gone; undone, undone is this poor bleeding Nation; thou must weep, and mourn for them, that of a thousand there will escape but one, when the great calamity doth come: Then I the Lord will mock and laugh at them that reject my Word, and abuse my Messengers, my own Children, and make light of me, and will take no warning; for this I the Lord am angry, and I remember, what they have done to thee.
