Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him (1 Corinthians 2:9)
Although this is a small book, yet it presents you with matters of the greatest and most weighty concern, even with a discourse of life and death to eternity. It reveals and clarifies, by the Scriptures of God, that the time is at hand when there will be a resurrection of the dead, both of the just and unjust – even of the bodies of both, from the graves where they are, or will be, at the start of that day.
In these few lines, you also have the order and manner of the rising of these two types of people, wherein it is shown to you with great clearness with what body they will then rise, as well as their condition at that day.
You will here see the truth, including the manner of the terrible judgment, the opening of the books, and the examining of witnesses, with a final conclusion upon good and bad. If you are godly, then through God’s blessing, this will encourage you to go on in the faith of the truth of the gospel; but if you are ungodly, then you may meet with conviction, and you will see what will be, without fail, your end at the end of the world whether you continue in your sins or repent. If you continue in your sins, you will meet with despair, darkness, and everlasting destruction; but if you repent and believe the gospel, then you will find light, life, joy, comfort, glory, and happiness throughout all eternity.
