To the Reader,
To the Saints of the Most High God, especially the afflicted in Conscience, lying under sad desertions, and groaning for delive∣rance. Grace, Peace and Victory, be given to you from the Lord Jesus Christ our Saviour,
The Captive delivered, Or a Relation of the great things which the Lord the mighty God of Heaven and Earth, did for his poor Servant C. L. in de∣livering him out of the midst of violent and dreadful temptations. April. 16. 1669. wit∣nessing to his Soul the greatness of his mer∣cy in the midst of his sins, and magnifying his free-grace in sealing it with the comfort∣able perswasion of his being one of Abrams believing seed, and this when under great unworthiness and unbelief, all which he now desires in thankfulness, and according to his vows in the day of his distress to de∣clare to the people of God, and to as many as shall read it.
CHAP. I. Of the Original cause of all troubles, what share the Authour had therein: Why seeing all men are by nature the children of wrath, do not all thus feel the weight of it, the particular occasion of his first awakening. Satans design in it. Gods over-ruling and turning it to good.
CHAP. II. Victory in and over temptation matter of admi∣ration Satan disappointed in particular temptati∣ons. Doth not cease them, but suspend them. Se∣curity the unbeseeming consequent of spiritual de∣liverance. The Mother of more and greater mi∣series. Satans Art may vary, but his Aime that same the writers experience herein.
CHAP. III. He holds on his profession. Walking remisly und der long peace, is awakened by aflictions, more dangerously wounded with temptations, but mer∣cifully rescued.
CHAP. IV. His strugling under and against temptations. The means most used and blessed for his support. Cast again the fourth and last time into the furnace of fiery hot instigations to blaspheme the means used and owned for coming thence. An happy issue.
CHAP. V. Concluding the whole experiment with an ac∣count of the unconceivable sweetness of divine con∣solations (the usual consequent of long and sort temptations) a more then abundant reason to abide Gods leisure under the heavy load of dsertions. Of the cause of writing.
A Post-script.
