PAGE

1

Of Creation in general

Of the Origin of the Soul

Whence Will and Thought are in the Creature

Why the Will is free. 

The Origin of Evil solely from the Creature 

This World not a first, immediate Creation of God 

How the World comes to be in its present State

The first Perfection of Man

All Things prove a Trinity in God

Man hath the triune Nature of God in Him

Arianism and Deism confuted by Nature

That Life is uniform through all Creatures

That there is but one kind of Death to be found in all Nature

The fallen Soul hath the Nature of Hell in it

Regeneration is a real Birth of a Divine Life in the Soul

That there is but one Salvation possible in Nature

This Salvation only to be had from Jesus Christ 

All the Deist’s Faith and Hope proved to be false

1

2

Of Eternal and Temporal Nature

How Nature is from God, and the Scene of his Action

How the Creatures are out of it

Temporal Nature created out of that which is eternal

The fallen Angels brought the first Disorders into Nature

This World created to repair those Disorders

Whence Good and Evil is in every Thing of this World

How Heaven and Hell make up the Whole of this World

How the Fire of this World differs from eternal Fire

And the Matter of this World from the Materiality of Heaven

Eternal Nature is the Kingdom of Heaven,

The beatific Manifestation of the triune God

God is more Love and Goodness

How Wrath and Anger come to be ascribed to him

Of Fire in general

Of the Unbeginning Fire

Of the Spirituality of Fire

How Fire comes to be in material Things

Whence the Possibility of kindling Fire in the Things of this World

Every Man is, and must be the Kindler of his own Eternal Fire

28

3

The true Ground of all the Doctrines of the Gospel Discovered

Why Adam could make no Atonement for his sins

Why, and how Jesus Christ alone could make this Atonement

Whence the Shedding of Blood for the Remission of Sins

What Wrath and Anger it is, that is quenched and atoned by the Blood of Christ

Of the last Sufferings of Christ

Why, and how we must eat the Flesh and drink the Blood of Jesus Christ
