Angelic Wisdom about Divine Providence

This work treats of the nature and operations of Divine providence, and unfolds the laws of order according to which God's government is regulated. It shows that His end in the creation of the world was a heaven of angels from the human race; that the Divine providence works according to invariable laws; that it is universal, extending to the least things; that in all it has respect to what is eternal; that among these laws are those of permission; that evils are permitted for the sake of the end, which is salvation; that Divine providence is equally with the wicked and the good; that every man can be reformed, and that there is no such thing as predestination; that the Lord cannot act against the laws of providence, because that would be to act against Divine love and Divine wisdom, consequently against Himself.
