VLJ-N70; E554|        The Last Judgment when all those are Cast away who trouble
VLJ-N70; E554|        Religion with Questions concerning Good & Evil or Eating of the
VLJ-N70; E554|        Tree of those Knowledges or Reasonings which hinder the Vision of
VLJ-N70; E554|        God turning all into a Consuming fire <When> Imaginative Art &
VLJ-N70; E554|        Science & all Intellectual Gifts all the Gifts of the Holy Ghost
VLJ-N70; E554|        are [despisd] lookd upon as of no use & only Contention
VLJ-N70; E554|        remains to Man then the Last Judgment begins & its Vision is seen
VLJ-N70; E554|        by the [Imaginative Eye] of Every one according to the
VLJ-N70; E554|        situation he holds
VLJ-N68; E554|        [[A Vision of the Last Judgment] PAGE 68] The Last Judgment is not Fable or Allegory
VLJ-N68; E554|        but Vision Fable or Allegory are a totally distinct & inferior
VLJ-N68; E554|        kind of Poetry. Vision or Imagination is a Representation of
VLJ-N68; E554|        what Eternally Exists. Really & Unchangeably. Fable or Allegory
VLJ-N68; E554|        is Formd by the Daughters of Memory. Imagination is Surrounded
VLJ-N68; E554|        by the daughters of Inspiration who in the aggregate are calld
VLJ-N68; E554|        Jerusalem [P 69] <Fable is Allegory but what Critics call The
VLJ-N69; E554|        Fable is Vision itself> [P 68] The Hebrew Bible & the Gospel of
VLJ-N68[b]; E554|        Jesus are not Allegory but Eternal Vision or Imagination of All
VLJ-N68[b]; E554|        that Exists <Note here that Fable or Allegory is Seldom without
VLJ-N68[b]; E554|        some Vision Pilgrims Progress is full of it the Greek Poets the
VLJ-N68[b]; E554|        same but [Fable [al] <&> Allegory]
VLJ-N68[b]; E554|        <Allegory & Vision> [<& Visions of Imagination>] ought
VLJ-N68[b]; E554|        to be known as Two Distinct Things & so calld for the Sake of
VLJ-N68[b]; E554|        Eternal Life Plato has made Socrates say that Poets & Prophets do
VLJ-N68[b]; E554|        not Know or Understand what they write or Utter this is a most
VLJ-N68[b]; E554|        Pernicious Falshood. If they do not pray is an inferior Kind to
VLJ-N68[b]; E554|        be calld Knowing Plato confutes himself>

VLJ-N68[b]; E555|        The Last judgment is one of these Stupendous
VLJ-N68[b]; E555|        Visions[.] I have represented it as I saw it[.]
VLJ-N68[b]; E555|        to different People it appears differently as [P 69] every
VLJ-N69[b]; E555|        thing else does for tho on Earth things seem Permanent they are
VLJ-N69[b]; E555|        less permanent than a Shadow as we all know too well
VLJ-N69[b]; E555|        The Nature of Visionary Fancy or Imagination is very little
VLJ-N69[b]; E555|        Known & the Eternal nature & permanence of its ever Existent
VLJ-N69[b]; E555|        Images is considerd as less permanent than the things of
VLJ-N69[b]; E555|        Vegetative & Generative Nature yet the Oak dies as well as the
VLJ-N69[b]; E555|        Lettuce but Its Eternal Image & Individuality never dies. but
VLJ-N69[b]; E555|        renews by its seed. just [as] <so> the Imaginative Image
VLJ-N69[b]; E555|        returns [according to] <by> the seed of Contemplative
VLJ-N69[b]; E555|        Thought the Writings of the Prophets illustrate these conceptions
VLJ-N69[b]; E555|        of the Visionary Fancy by their various sublime & Divine Images

VLJ-N71; E555|        Fable & Spiritual Mystery Let it here be Noted that the Greek
VLJ-N71; E555|        Fables originated in Spiritual Mystery & Real Vision [P 72]
VLJ-N72; E555|        and Real Visions Which are lost & clouded in Fable & Alegory

VLJ-N69[c]; E555|        [[A Vision of the Last Judgment] PAGE 69] This world of Imagination is the World of

VLJ-N70[b]; E555|        Existences according to [their aggregate Imaginations] a
VLJ-N70[b]; E555|        certain order suited to my Imaginative Eye [In the following

VLJ-N70[b]; E555|        ought to follow the description>
VLJ-N76; E555|        [[A Vision of the Last Judgment] PAGE 76] Jesus seated between the Two Pillars Jachin
VLJ-N76; E555|        & Boaz with the Word of <Divine> Revelation on his Knees <& on each
VLJ-N76; E555|        side the

VLJ-N76; E556|        descending> [as a Scroll] The Just arise on his right &
VLJ-N76; E556|        the wicked on his Left hand <A Sea of fire Issues from before the
VLJ-N76; E556|        Throne> Adam & Eve appear first before the [throne]
VLJ-N76; E556|        <Judgment Seat> in humiliation Abel surrounded by Innocents &
VLJ-N76; E556|        Cain <with the flint in his hand with which he slew his brother>
VLJ-N76; E556|        falling with the head downward From the Cloud on which Eve stands
VLJ-N76; E556|        Satan is seen falling headlong wound round by the tail of the
VLJ-N76; E556|        serpent whose bulk naild to the Cross round which he wreathes is
VLJ-N76; E556|        falling into the Abyss Sin is also represented as a female bound
VLJ-N76; E556|        in one of the Serpents folds surrounded by her fiends Death is
VLJ-N76; E556|        Chaind to the Cross & Time falls together with death dragged down
VLJ-N76; E556|        by [an Angel] a Demon crownd with Laurel another demon
VLJ-N76; E556|        with a Key has the charge of Sin & is dragging her down by the
VLJ-N76; E556|        hair beside them a figure is seen scaled with iron scales from
VLJ-N76; E556|        head to feet precipitating himself into the Abyss with the Sword
VLJ-N76; E556|        & Balances he is Og King of Bashan--
VLJ-N76; E556|        <On the Right> Beneath the Cloud on which Abel kneels is
VLJ-N76; E556|        Abraham with Sarah & Isaac [&] also Hagar & Ishmael.
VLJ-N76; E556|        <Abel kneels on a bloody Cloud [P 80] descriptive of those

VLJ-N80; E556|        well suppose that the places he has passed thro exist no more as
VLJ-N80; E556|        a Man may suppose that the States he has passd thro exist no more
VLJ-N80; E556|        Every Thing is Eternal>
VLJ-N79; E556|        [[A Vision of the Last Judgment] PAGE 79] In Eternity one Thing never Changes into
VLJ-N79; E556|        another Thing Each Identity is Eternal consequently Apuleius's
VLJ-N79; E556|        Golden Ass & Ovids Metamorphosis & others of the like kind are
VLJ-N79; E556|        Fable yet they contain Vision in a Sublime degree being derived
VLJ-N79; E556|        from real Vision in More Ancient Writings[.] Lots Wife
VLJ-N79; E556|        being Changed into Pillar of Salt alludes to the Mortal Body
VLJ-N79; E556|        being renderd a Permanent Statue but not Changed or Transformed
VLJ-N79; E556|        into Another Identity while it retains its own Individuality. A
VLJ-N79; E556|        Man can never become Ass nor Horse some are born with shapes of
VLJ-N79; E556|        Men who may be both but Eternal Identity is one thing & Corporeal
VLJ-N79; E556|        Vegetation is another thing Changing Water into Wine by Jesus &
VLJ-N79; E556|        into Blood by Moses relates to Vegetable Nature also
VLJ-N76[b]; E556|        [[A Vision of the Last Judgment] PAGE 76] [Beneath] <Ishmael is Mahomet> & <on
VLJ-N76[b]; E556|        the left> beneath the falling figure of Cain is Moses casting his tables of
VLJ-N76[b]; E556|        stone into the Deeps. it ought to be understood that the Persons
VLJ-N76[b]; E556|        Moses & Abraham are not here meant but the States Signified by
VLJ-N76[b]; E556|        those Names the Individuals being representatives or Visions of
VLJ-N76[b]; E556|        those States as they were reveald to Mortal Man in the Series of
VLJ-N76[b]; E556|        Divine Revelations. as they are written in the Bible these
VLJ-N76[b]; E556|        various States I have seen in my Imagination when distant they
VLJ-N76[b]; E556|        appear as One Man but as you approach they appear

VLJ-N76[b]; E557|        Multitudes of Nations. Abraham hovers above his posterity which
VLJ-N76[b]; E557|        appear as Multitudes of Children ascending from the Earth
VLJ-N76[b]; E557|        surrounded by Stars as it was said As the Stars of Heaven for
VLJ-N76[b]; E557|        Multitude Jacob & [their] his Twelve Sons hover beneath
VLJ-N76[b]; E557|        the feet of Abraham & recieve their children from the Earth <I
VLJ-N76[b]; E557|        have seen when at a distance Multitudes of Men in Harmony appear
VLJ-N76[b]; E557|        like a single Infant sometimes in the Arms of a Female
VLJ-N76[b]; E557|        [they] <this> represented the Church>
VLJ-N76[b]; E557|        But to proceed with the description of those on the Left
VLJ-N76[b]; E557|        hand. beneath the Cloud on which Moses kneels is two figures a
VLJ-N76[b]; E557|        Male & Female chaind [P 77] together by the feet[.] they
VLJ-N77; E557|        represent those who perishd by the flood[.] beneath them a
VLJ-N77; E557|        multitude of their associates are seen falling headlong[.] by the
VLJ-N77; E557|        side of them is a Mighty fiend with a Book in his hand which is
VLJ-N77; E557|        Shut he represents the person namd in Isaiah XXII.c & 20.V.
VLJ-N77; E557|        Eliakim the Son of Hilkiah he drags Satan down headlong he is
VLJ-N77; E557|        crownd with oak [&has] by the side of the Scaled figure
VLJ-N77; E557|        representing Og King of Bashan is a Figure with a Basket emptiing
VLJ-N77; E557|        out the vanities of Riches & Worldly Honours <he is Araunah the
VLJ-N77; E557|        Jebusite> <master of the threshing floor> above him are two
VLJ-N77; E557|        figures <elevated on a Cloud> representing the Pharisees who
VLJ-N77; E557|        plead their own Righteousness before the throne. they are weighed
VLJ-N77; E557|        down by two fiends[.] Beneath the Man with the Basket are three
VLJ-N77; E557|        fiery fiends with grey beards & scourges of fire they represent
VLJ-N77; E557|        Cruel Laws they scourge a groupe of figures down into the Deeps
VLJ-N77; E557|        beneath them are various figures in attitudes of contention
VLJ-N77; E557|        representing various States of Misery which alas every one on
VLJ-N77; E557|        Earth is liable to enter into & against which we should all watch
VLJ-N77; E557|        The Ladies will be pleasd to see that I have represented the
VLJ-N77; E557|        Furies by Three Men & not by three Women It is not because I
VLJ-N77; E557|        think the Ancients wrong but they will be pleasd to remember that
VLJ-N77; E557|        mine is Vision & not Fable The Spectator may suppose them
VLJ-N77; E557|        Clergymen in the Pulpit Scourging Sin instead of Forgiving it
VLJ-N77; E557|        The Earth beneath these falling Groupes of figures is rocky
VLJ-N77; E557|        & burning and seems as if convulsd by Earthquakes a Great City
VLJ-N77; E557|        <on fire> is seen in the Distance <the Armies are fleeing upon
VLJ-N77; E557|        the Mountains> On the foreground hell is opened & many figures
VLJ-N77; E557|        are descending into it down stone steps & beside a Gate beneath a
VLJ-N77; E557|        rock [howling & lamenting] <where Sin & Death are to be
VLJ-N77; E557|        closed Eternally by that Fiend who carries the Key in one hand &
VLJ-N77; E557|        drags them down with the other> On the rock & above the Gate a
VLJ-N77; E557|        fiend with wings urges the wicked onwards with fiery darts he
VLJ-N77; E557|        [represents the Assyrian] <is Hazael the Syrian> who
VLJ-N77; E557|        drives abroad all those who rebell against their Saviour
VLJ-N77; E557|        beneath the steps Babylon represented by a King crowned Grasping
VLJ-N77; E557|        his Sword & his Scepter he is just awakend out of his Grave
VLJ-N77; E557|        around him are other Kingdoms arising to Judgment. represented in
VLJ-N77; E557|        this Picture as Single Personages according to the descriptions
VLJ-N77; E557|        in the Prophets The Figure dragging up a Woman by her hair

VLJ-N83; E560|        Above the Head of Noah is Seth this State calld Seth is Male

VLJ-N83; E560|        nearer the State of Innocence beneath the feet of Seth two
VLJ-N83; E560|        figures represent the two Seasons of Spring & Autumn. while
VLJ-N83; E560|        beneath the feet of Noah Four Seasons represent [our present
VLJ-N83; E560|        changes of Extremes] the Changed State made by the flood.
VLJ-N83; E560|        By the side of Seth is Elijah he comprehends all the
VLJ-N83; E560|        Prophetic Characters he is seen on his fiery Chariot bowing
VLJ-N83; E560|        before the throne of the Saviour. in like manner The figures of
VLJ-N83; E560|        Seth & his wife Comprehends the Fathers before the flood & their
VLJ-N83; E560|        Generations when seen remote they appear as One Man. a little
VLJ-N83; E560|        below Seth on his right are Two Figures a Male & Female with
VLJ-N83; E560|        numerous Children these represent those who were not in the Line
VLJ-N83; E560|        of the Church & yet were Saved from among the Antediluvians who
VLJ-N83; E560|        Perished. between Seth & these a female figure [with the back

VLJ-N83; E561|        Groupes of Figures particularly the Four Living Creatures
VLJ-N83; E561|        mentiond in Revelations as Surrounding the Throne these I suppose
VLJ-N83; E561|        to have the chief agency in removing the [former] [P 84]
VLJ-N84; E561|        old heavens & the old Earth to make way for the New Heaven & the

VLJ-N92; E563|        By this it will be seen that I do not consider either the Just
VLJ-N92; E563|        or the Wicked to be in a Supreme State but to be every one of
VLJ-N92; E563|        them States of the Sleep which the Soul may fall into in its

VLJ-N86; E563|        Violence The Deist & the Christian are but the Results of these
VLJ-N86; E563|        Opposing Natures Many are Deists who would in certain
VLJ-N86; E563|        Circumstances

VLJ-N86; E564|        have been Christians in outward appearance Voltaire was one of
VLJ-N86; E564|        this number he was as intolerant as an Inquisitor Manners make
VLJ-N86; E564|        the Man not Habits. It is the same in Art by their Works ye [P
VLJ; E564|        90] shall know them the Knave who is Converted to Deism & the
VLJ-N90[b]; E564|        Knave who is Converted to Christianity is still a Knave but he
VLJ-N90[b]; E564|        himself will not know it tho Every body else does Christ comes
VLJ-N90[b]; E564|        as he came at first to deliver those who were bound under the
VLJ-N90[b]; E564|        Knave not to deliver the Knave He Comes to Deliver Man the
VLJ-N90[b]; E564|        [Forgiven] <Accused &> not Satan the Accuser we do not
VLJ-N90[b]; E564|        find any where that Satan is Accused of Sin he is only accused of
VLJ-N90[b]; E564|        Unbelief & thereby drawing Man into Sin that he may accuse him.
VLJ-N90[b]; E564|        Such is the Last Judgment a Deliverance from Satans Accusation
VLJ-N90[b]; E564|        Satan thinks that Sin is displeasing to God he ought to know that
VLJ-N90[b]; E564|        Nothing is displeasing to God but Unbelief & Eating of the Tree
VLJ-N90[b]; E564|        of Knowledge of Good & Evil
VLJ-N87; E564|        [[A Vision of the Last Judgment] PAGE 87] Men are admitted into Heaven not because
VLJ-N87; E564|        they have
VLJ-N87; E564|        <curbed &> governd their Passions or have No Passions but because
VLJ-N87; E564|        they have Cultivated their Understandings. The Treasures of
VLJ-N87; E564|        Heaven are not Negations of Passion but Realities of Intellect
VLJ-N87; E564|        from which All the Passions Emanate <Uncurbed> in their Eternal
VLJ-N87; E564|        Glory The Fool shall not enter into Heaven let him be ever so
VLJ-N87; E564|        Holy. Holiness is not The Price of Enterance into Heaven Those
VLJ-N87; E564|        who are cast out Are All Those who having no Passions of their
VLJ-N87; E564|        own because No Intellect. Have spent their lives in Curbing &
VLJ-N87; E564|        Governing other Peoples by the Various arts of Poverty & Cruelty
VLJ-N87; E564|        of all kinds Wo Wo Wo to you Hypocrites Even Murder the
VLJ-N87; E564|        Courts of Justice <more merciful than the Church> are compelld to
VLJ-N87; E564|        allow is not done in Passion but in Cool Blooded Design &
VLJ-N87; E564|        Intention
VLJ-N87; E564|        The Modern Church Crucifies Christ with the Head Downwards
VLJ-N92[b]; E564|        [[A Vision of the Last Judgment] 92] Many Persons such as Paine & Voltaire
VLJ-N92[b]; E564|        <with <some
VLJ-N92[b]; E564|        of> the Ancient Greeks> say we will not Converse concerning Good
VLJ-N92[b]; E564|        & Evil we will live in Paradise & Liberty You may do so in
VLJ-N92[b]; E564|        Spirit but not in the <Mortal> Body as you pretend till after the
VLJ-N92[b]; E564|        Last Judgment for in Paradise they have no Corporeal <& Mortal>
VLJ-N92[b]; E564|        Body that originated with the Fall & was calld Death & cannot be
VLJ-N92[b]; E564|        removed but by a Last judgment while we are in the world of
VLJ-N92[b]; E564|        Mortality we Must Suffer The Whole Creation Groans to be
VLJ-N92[b]; E564|        deliverd there will always be as many Hypocrites born as Honest
VLJ-N92[b]; E564|        Men & they will always have superior Power in Mortal Things You
VLJ-N92[b]; E564|        cannot have Liberty in this World without <what you call> Moral
VLJ-N92[b]; E564|        Virtue & you cannot have Moral Virtue without the Slavery of that
VLJ-N92[b]; E564|        half of the Human Race who hate <what you call> Moral Virtue
VLJ-N92[b]; E564|        The Nature of Hatred & Envy & of All the Mischiefs in the
VLJ-N92[b]; E564|        World are here depicted. No one Envies or Hates one of his Own
VLJ-N92[b]; E564|        Party even the devils love one another in their Way they torment
VLJ-N92[b]; E564|        one another for other reasons than Hate or Envy these are only
VLJ-N92[b]; E564|        employd against the Just. Neither can Seth Envy Noah or Elijah
VLJ-N92[b]; E564|        Envy Abraham but they

VLJ-N92[b]; E565|        may both of them Envy the Success [P 93] of Satan or of Og or
VLJ-N93; E565|        Molech The Horse never Envies the Peacock nor the Sheep the Goat
VLJ-N93; E565|        but they Envy a Rival in Life & Existence whose ways & means
VLJ-N93; E565|        exceed their own let him be of what Class of Animals he will a
VLJ-N93; E565|        Dog will envy a Cat who is pamperd at the expense of his comfort
VLJ-N93; E565|        as I have often seen The Bible never tells us that Devils
VLJ-N93; E565|        torment one another thro Envy it is <thro> this that
VLJ-N93; E565|        [makes] they torment the Just but for what do they
VLJ-N93; E565|        torment one another I answer For the Coercive Laws of Hell
VLJ-N93; E565|        Moral Hypocrisy. They torment a Hypocrite when he is discoverd
VLJ-N93; E565|        they Punish a Failure in the tormentor who has sufferd the
VLJ-N93; E565|        Subject of his torture to Escape In Hell all is Self
VLJ-N93; E565|        Righteousness there is no such thing there as Forgiveness of Sin
VLJ-N93; E565|        he who does Forgive Sin is Crucified as an Abettor of Criminals.
VLJ-N93; E565|        & he who performs Works of Mercy in Any shape whatever is punishd
VLJ-N93; E565|        & if possible destroyd not thro Envy or Hatred or Malice but
VLJ-N93; E565|        thro Self Righteousness that thinks it does God service which God
VLJ-N93; E565|        is Satan <They do not Envy one another They contemn <& despise>
VLJ-N93; E565|        one another>
VLJ-N93; E565|        Forgiveness of Sin is only at the Judgment Seat of Jesus the
VLJ-N93; E565|        Saviour where the Accuser is cast out. not because he Sins but
VLJ-N93; E565|        because he torments the Just & makes them do what he condemns as
VLJ-N93; E565|        Sin & what he knows is opposite to their own Identity
VLJ-N93; E565|        It is not because Angels are Holier than Men or Devils that
VLJ-N93; E565|        makes them Angels but because they do not Expect Holiness from
VLJ-N93; E565|        one another but from God only
VLJ-N93; E565|        The Player is a liar when he Says Angels are happier than [P
VLJ-N94; E565|        94] Men because they are better Angels are happier than Men <&
VLJ-N94; E565|        Devils> because they are not always Prying after Good & Evil in
VLJ-N94; E565|        One Another & eating the Tree of Knowledge for Satans
VLJ-N94; E565|        Gratification
VLJ-N94; E565|        Thinking as I do that the Creator of this World is a very
VLJ-N94; E565|        Cruel Being & being a Worshipper of Christ I cannot help saying
VLJ-N94; E565|        the Son O how unlike the Father <First God Almighty comes with a
VLJ-N94; E565|        Thump on the Head Then Jesus Christ comes with a balm to heal it>
VLJ-N94; E565|        The Last Judgment is an Overwhelming of Bad Art & Science.
VLJ-N94; E565|        Mental Things are alone Real what is Calld Corporeal Nobody Knows
VLJ-N94; E565|        of its Dwelling Place <it> is in Fallacy & its Existence an
VLJ-N94; E565|        Imposture Where is the Existence Out of Mind or Thought Where is
VLJ-N94; E565|        it but in the Mind of a Fool. Some People flatter themselves
VLJ-N94; E565|        that there will be No Last Judgment & [P 95] that Bad Art will be
VLJ-N95; E565|        adopted & mixed with Good Art That Error or Experiment will make
VLJ-N95; E565|        a Part of Truth & they Boast that it is its Foundation these
VLJ-N95; E565|        People flatter themselves I will not Flatter them Error is
VLJ-N95; E565|        Created Truth is Eternal Error or Creation will be Burned Up &
VLJ-N95; E565|        then & not till then Truth or Eternity will appear It is Burnt up
VLJ-N95; E565|        the Moment Men cease to behold it I assert for My self that I do
VLJ-N95; E565|        not behold the Outward Creation & that to me it is hindrance &
VLJ-N95; E565|        not Action it is as the Dirt upon my feet No part of Me. What it
VLJ-N95; E565|        will be Questiond When the Sun rises do you not see a round

VLJ-N95; E566|        Disk of fire somewhat like a Guinea O no no I see an Innumerable
VLJ-N95; E566|        company of the Heavenly host crying Holy Holy Holy is the Lord
VLJ-N95; E566|        God Almighty I question not my Corporeal or Vegetative Eye any
VLJ-N95; E566|        more than I would Question a Window concerning a Sight I look
VLJ-N95; E566|        thro it & not with it.
