By Thomas Brooks, 1670
A serious discourse concerning "The Great Fire of London" which recently turned our once renowned city of London, into a ruinous heap! Also the several lessons that are incumbent upon those whose houses have escaped the consuming flames.
"Come, see the glorious works of the Lord! See how He brings destruction upon the world!" Psalm 46:8
"Then they will take up a lament concerning you and say to you — 'How you are destroyed, O city of renown, peopled by men of the sea!" Ezekiel 26:17
"Who gave Jacob to the robber, and Israel to the plunderers? Was it not the Lord? Have we not sinned against Him? They were not willing to walk in His ways, and they would not listen to His instruction. So He poured out on them his burning anger, the violence of war. It enveloped them in flames, yet they did not understand; it consumed them, but they did not take it to heart." Isaiah 42:24-25
