Excerpt from A Treatise Concerning Heaven and Hell: Containing a Relation of Many Wonderful Things Therein, as Heard and Seen by the Author
Besides the more general provisions made by the Father of Lights for the instruction of his church and people in divine things, under the publick dispensations of the Law and the Gospel, He has also been graciously pleased, at sundry times and in divers manners, as occasions and the needs of the church might require it, to make extraordinary discoveries and revelations to particular persons, either for more private or publick use, and to answer various ends of his wisdom and goodness: and indeed, were it so that all things proceeded according to one invariable rule of government in his administrations, in grace, in providence, and also in the natural world, without his interposing any particular acts of his divine authority and power, God's government of the world would be less attended to and believed in, his cognizance of human affairs be questioned by many, and such a settled sameness in the course of things be construed into a blind fatality.
